I've passed by Forno's about a thousand times but never before stopped in. It seems I'm always passing by while on my way somewhere else. Today I accompanied a friend on a visit to his lawyer. The lawyer's office is right around the corner from Forno's. Turned out that all three of us had skipped breakfast, so by lunch time we were all famished. We decided on a quick pizza lunch, and Forno's was closest.
One of the things you notice passing by is the unusual architecture. I'm sure this building used to be something else ... but what? The front is all windows and patio doors opening on to a front dining patio, but we didn't use it because it looked like it was about to rain.
Walking in from the rear parking lot you first pass a display case full of specialty pizzas. They all looked delicious. But we needed to eat something NOW ... even before the pizza was baked. There on the counter was a stack of warm, round, flat bread loaves. Give us one of those too, with some olive oil and some butter.
Next you pay for your order. Next stop off at the beverage counter, pour your own, and bring it to your table. A server will bring your food order.
We had the Forno Special white pizza with garlic, broccoli, peppers, spinach, mushrooms, onions, tomatoes, parmesan and mozzarella. Just right, looked beautiful, and an 18 inch large was just the right size for three hungry guys.
Oh, and ... unusual for south Jersey pizza shops ... they also have a liquor license, so you can get beer or wine. We didn't.
One reviewer wrote "best brick oven pizza in Camden County." Nope ... wrong on two counts. On the way out I too noticed the wood-fired brick oven, but the owner said they don't use it any more. Too bad. And second, although Forno's is right on the Cherry Hill-Maple Shade line, its on the Maple Shade side of that line, putting it in Burlington County.
