The restaurant provides to areas: The bar area on the left side and the restaurant area on the right side. In both areas you can order the same food. My favorite side was the bar area. The service was excellent and the Pizza was even better. The pizza base is really Italian style - thin but crusty. The toppings are... More

As happens, a restaurant with 'no' ceiling creates noise. The vents, tubes and pipes are not a visual problem but, sounds bounce off them. However, if you order fresh from the stone oven pizza, it's worth the audio effects.

Always enjoy Italian food and Il Fornello has never disappointed us. However this experience was even made more memorable because of our server Carly. She was attentive, took the time to speak to us about what was in the menu. She was very knowledgeable and really engaged us. We never felt rushed and she went above and beyond!! The chacuterie...

We were on a tight budget but yet decided to eat here thinking maybe it was going to be out of our price range. It was perfect! I was able to eat some really delicious pizza and salad under 20 bucks.

My wife feels that il Formello has the best fried calamari she has had next to our in laws. I ha d their carne pizza , , the taste was good but the crust was soft underneath also they cut the pizza in quarters which makes eating more difficult. $28.00 for a half liter of Woodbridge Chardonnay is pricey!
