Angry owner berates and belittles his staff in front of customers. I've never felt so uncomfortable in a restaurant... and NO you do not use peas in chicken piccata, unless you're too cheap to buy capers.

Was unsure because the place was empty at lunch time during the week. That is unusual for most places. But the food was wonderful, had the Lobster Fiesta (special). The restaurant was overly cool, temperature wise.

Bon voyage party for our coworker Cheryl. Food was delicious and service was great too! I think her name was Elizabeth..... The Veal Scallopini was off the charts good!! All in all for these locals, Il Forno is always a nice homey Italian spot.

Nothing is fancy here. Il Forno is in a strip mall. It is important to note that Il Forno does not serve liquor of any sort. It is a BYOB. The server can't even pour what we brought. Selecting our food was difficult because there...More

This place is a location one might drive pass and not stop from outside, but they would miss some great food and big plate size. On a whim, we stopped and enjoyed our "take home" bag, because the meal was so large. The server was...More
