Have enjoyed II Forno's for some time; always good food. I had spagetti and meat sauce for the first time - excellent. Also mussels in a red sauce. The hot Santino sandwich is my first choice...love it.

This was an excellent restaurant. Alicia was our waitress and she was friendly and professional. I ordered the chicken parm with house salad and capellini. Others ordered a supreme pizza and penne ala vodka. The food was excellent and Alicia did a great job.

First time visit. XL pizza & garlic rolls were enough to feed family of 4 for 2 meals. Pizza was good and thin but not much flavor in the sauce but there wasn’t much on it so maybe that’s why. Still tasty. * Would order...More
