This is one of several trips to il Forno... both Fitchburg and W. Boylston. We have never had a bad meal at either. This trip I had seafood il Forno w/ spicy mariana sauce and my wife had lobster ravioli. Both meals were excellent but...More

The food is very good, but the place is small and tables are so close together. You feel like you are part of another persons table and conversation at times. But again, the food is good. The pasta dishes are amazing, the pizza so good....More

Michael and staff always do a great job whenever we go there, which is quite frequently. Food is reasonably priced and there are extremely generous portions. Staff is always friendly! Salad and garlic bread are amazing here, especially with the house creamy Italian dressing. Top...More

I've eaten here many times, in the restaurant and take out. Again, a poor example of a good restaurant going down hill. I was very disappointed when I ordered a meal & received the knuckles of the chicken, which I usually cut out before cooking/serving....More
