My friend and I go out every Thursday to try a local place, and we tried out Il Forno. We have simple taste, and are difficult to disappoint. We ordered Vodka Penne with Procuitto, and Lasagna. The only reason this even got one star was the decor and service. Both were perfect. The food however, was abysmal. The Penne was actually rigatoni (insignificant in the grand scheme) The Vodka sauce was oddly flavored, with chunks of a thick sliced mystery meat. It smelled so bad it was nauseating. The lasagna was fine, reminiscent of Stauffers frozen lasagna. The salad and rolls were just ho hum accompaniments that were not very flavorful. The bread was a cold roll, with a plasticy tasting topping. I hear they have tasty subs and pizza, so when I am feeling brave, I will go back and try it. Don't waste your money on the pasta. I wish I had the experience listed next to this review.

I visited here with my family and sampled many things.

Service: The first thing that was great was that as soon as you walk in the door you are greeted by everyone. Anything you asked for was given to you with a smile and speedy service. The food came out within a reasonable time even though they seemed kind of busy.

Price: The price is average for a dinner. They range from $5.95 to $12.95 for dinner selections however there are other items much cheaper on the menu and pizzas can be slightly more expensive. The average price is about eight dollars. The amount of food that you receive however is worth the price and much more. Even a cheese steak can last you two meals. Just be careful as always how much you order because prices do add up.

Food: The quality of the food is unbelievably amazing. All dinners come with a side salad which is of good quality and a basket of garlic knots. The garlic knots are just knots of bread and are amazing. I ordered a cheese steak which I consider to be the best one in all of Hartford County if not Maryland. We also got an 18" meat pizza which was awesome. It is all made at the restaurant and cooked to perfection in a brick oven. The toppings were generous and the overall size was enormous. My sister purchased the Mediterranean salad with chicken and absolutely loved it. She says that the lettuce is fresh and all of the toppings are of premium quality.

Drinks: There iced tea is fresh and you have the choice of sweetening it yourself if you wish instead of having it already sweetened. This always seemed like a no brainier to me but many places don't do it this way. My Father and sister both loved the coffee as well and the sodas were not flat.

Overall:
Service: Top quality
Prices: As expected
Food: Best, five stars, amazing
Drinks: Fresh and cheap
Perfect for any occasion, they do carry out but not delivery.
