Il Forno

The “food, owners and servers are all so very Italian” at this “neighborhood favorite” next to Santa Monica Airport (and its branch on Colorado Avenue) where locals go for “delicious, unpretentious”, “reasonably priced” fare and “friendly”, “attentive” service in a “low-key” setting that’s “perfect” when “you want a tablecloth but don’t want to get dressed up.

"We made a 6:30 pm reservation on a Saturday night during Restaurant Week. Big Mistake. It took them about 15 to 20 minutes to seat us. If you're going during this time, get there early. Disappointed that they never showed us the dineLA Restaurant Week menu, although our neighbors seemed to get it. Were they trying to rip us off? Food was good, but service was so-so."

"We went there for the second time during dineLA and the food never disappoint us. Great food, good portion as they kept the original size as the regular menu. Their prix fix selection was fantastic. We went there on a busy Saturday night let alone during dineLA week so it was understandable that the service was a little slow and hard to get servers' attention as we had to repeat our request for a couple of times. Apart from that, the overall experience was excellent. Definitely recommended for Italian foodies."

"Completely satisfying, from the wines the waiter suggested to the surprisingly extra-delectable salad to the plating of the dishes to an ambience that was not too loud to have an excellent conversation with dinner companion without screaming (we were in the smaller side room with a reservation on the later side)..."

"Made reservations on OpenTable for a birthday lunch. I told them about the birthday and it was never acknowledged. After a long wait, they finally took our order, even though the restaurant was half empty. We never knew who our server was because a different person delivered our drinks, bread, salads, entrees, dessert and the bill. Not sure if this is how they run the restaurant. Our meals were very good and recommend."

"Il Forno is our "go to" neighborhood Italian restaurant. The food choices are excellent and innovative. The cooking is always superb. Tables are closely packed and the VERY busy servers can lag at times. These criticisms are minor given the quality of the food and the moderate prices. We will be back--often."

"Attentive service, well prepared offerings and plenty of vegetables to complement the main dish...can't ask for more in a neighborhood gem."

"I've been going to Il Forno since I've moved to Los Angeles in 1992. The quality of the food continues to be superb, but what does it for me are the people who work there. Friendly, professional and they make you feel at home. From the owner to the bus boys. I will continue to visit this great place, with my family, as long as I live."

"Il Forno is a great restaurant all around. Good service, hot food, attentive bus staff. It's always consistent and you know you're going to get a great meal. You can't stop eating the delicious warm bread and fresh chunky bruschetta, that is complimentary. They just do it right. Can tell staff is well trained."
