“okay lunch”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

sopped by for lunch. had a veal parm, which can be sometimes hard to find. the veal, although generous in portion, was slightly overcooked and therefore a bit tough. didnt compare to some south philly haunts. might try something else but it wont be soon.

“What a disappointment”
Reviewed April 22, 2012

We have been La Forno customers for almost 10 years. Last night was a great disappointment. Their menu must be fraying at the seams. The chicken kebab with pita was a disgrace. The chicken was bone dry and had a stale, unknown taste. The vegetables were tasteless. The turkey club had a poor taste, presumably from the bacon. We took a few bites of these poor dishes and left; fortunately we did not get food poisoning. We will not be coming back for quite a while. A waste of a visit. By the way the service was inattentive as well.

“Fast food that is tasty.”
Reviewed March 11, 2012

Unpretentious deli with a surprisingly diverse Italian menu of well prepared meals. I only wish they had been grammatically correct and called it "IL Forno" but then that might have suggested a bellyache?

Ate there last night. They have great pizza - the crust really makes the pizza. Good pastas and salads and all the other soups,, sandwiches, etc. Always busy.

“Best Cheesesteak in Media, in my humble opinion best in Philly area.”
Reviewed July 28, 2011

Try the cheesesteaks they are beyond excellent.. Perfect cheese::meat ratio! I love mine with fried onions. The rolls are always fresh! My favorite Cheesesteak of all time. My boyfriend & I love them. If you have the opportunity to try them, do it!
