We recently went with cousins my husband had not seen in over 40 years. We have been going here for years and the food and service never changes...always 5 star....we actually closed the place at 10:30pm. This is a must when in the LA area.

Conveniently located on Ocean Park Blvd., Il Forno is in a small development with Starbucks and other more visible places. Easy underground parking, moderate prices, and no pressure to eat-and-go make this a favorite among locals. Also a good choice for dessert and coffee.
