Friendly staff, locally owned restaurant that is always crowded. Pizza, subs, calzones are all great. Their salads are a little weak for an Italian restaurant, but I love the pizza so much I don't care!! Sausage, pepper & onions is my favorite. Can always carry out too, area near the bar to grab & go!

This place is always crowded. The pizza is awesome. Do a takeout on a Friday night. You will wait to be seated but its worth it. Family style seating if you want, loud but fun.

the pizza is delicious. The crust is so flavorful and never burnt. I highly recommend the greek pizza. The service is great. Servers are attentive but casual ie not in in your face every second. Decent beer selection. Price is great for a special pizza night.

When we came in the staff was helping a older with her packages and he left over pizza. It was great to see how attentive they were. That level of service is almost unheard of in pizza places, and it continued for our meal. This was a very busy Sunday night and all the employees worked as a team. If... More

Have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Definitely the best pizza in the area. Clean restaurant and bathrooms. Friendly attentive staff. Give it a try. I'm sure you'll love it.

Looks like a popular place. Didn't have to wait but it was late afternoon on a Sunday, I'd think this place could get pretty crowded. Expansive menu. Margharita pizza was excellent and the salads were large. Fried pickles were a favorite at the table.

I paid 20 percent less at Il Forno than I would for a family of four and the quality of food and service was top notch. I highly recommend! I believe you could go with any pizza and not be disappointed.

We stopped at Il Forno to have a quick lunch break while on the road. It was a great experience. The service was fast and friendly. We had the pizza alla puttanesca with goat cheese and it was very good. All the ingredients were fresh and tasty.
