We just had a delicious meal! The Stromboli was LEGIT! Full of delicious mozzarella cheese and toppings! You can tell they use a high quality mozzarella. The pizza was delish, too!

We were so wanting to enjoy the food. Hopeful to find a good Italian restaurant. We sat down and seat and table were sticky. We ordered a soup and it never came. We ordered chicken Alfredo and chicken parm. The food came out five minutes later. Making us feel it was pre made and microwaved. The chicken Alfredo was swimming in sauce with fat deposits and chicken was very dry with no flavor. The chicken parm was not good and no seasoning. The waitress comes running over with the soup we ordered for an appetizer. My husband also felt the food had no flavor and we both found strange the food was out in 5 minutes. The owner was kind and apologized and waitress was also offering anything else. The food wasn’t as we had anticipated. Maybe a bad day but neither one of us liked the food. My husband was starving and ate most of his. I couldn’t.

Phenomenal food, never had anything bad here! Staff has always been nice, owner is very hands on and always will check on our group. Will continue to eat here 2-3 times a year when we visit town.

They are friendly and made us feel welcome. The pizza is good as was the side Caesar salad and the portion was plentiful, but the fried calamari was the best I ever put in my mouth and I have eaten alot of calamari over the years. Can't wait to go back a try their pasta dishes and have the calamari again.

I've eaten here twice now, first experience was great as dine in. The waitress was friendly and talkative, and the food was very good. 2nd time, I had Pizza and honestly it's one of the best ones I've had living in florida. I had the bacon, ham , garlic and onion. The sauce was yummy. Delivery service sucks, but the food is really really good.

Great food but horrible service. My husband and I ate here before, there were no problems that time. However, on fathers day we walk in only one person said that someone will be right with us. We waited standing there for over 10 minutes no one even bother to ask how big our party was. Waiters kept walking back and forth just ignoring us. The Italian guy at the register, saw us standing there, he did not acknowledge us. We walked out when a couple walked in and he looked at them directly and said table for 2. I'm discussed by this, this was definitely a racial remark. We were too dark skinned for your restaurant?The worst part that he did this in front of our kids and they noticed it. Do you know how it feels when your child looks at you with watery eyes?!!!

Il Forno is one of those wonderful family Italian places we all know and love. Being originally from the St Louis area, I have high standards for Italian. I decided to try their take on a St Louis favorite, toasted ravioli. Their version is a cheese ravioli. Sacrilege in St Louis. I actually think it gets you jail time and public humiliation. Pardon the humor, but it was great, with an excellent cheese filling and near perfect marinara sauce. The appetizer portion was huge. I think there was 20 or more ravioli. My wife got the eggplant Parmesan. I had the antipasto salad. My son went with the Penne alla Vodka. All were simply delicious. Excellent family Italian. Bellissimo. Great sauce and great preparation.
