Great homemade gluten free pasta
While the service was wonderful and the atmosphere funky and peaceful, some of the food was lacking. My meal of slow roasted short ribs with palenta was cold and my husband's potato gnocchi was underwhelming. The crispy Brussels Sprouts however, were fantastic!
The food & drinks were amazing, the service was stellar and the atmosphere was beautiful! We always come here before a concert at the Arena, but make an effort to come more than that, as well. Always a treat!
Pizza was really good..... brunch was @ another level... if you have sweet tooth get the pumpkin pancakes.... way too good
I would venture there again
The food was superb! It is a true Delight to be able to have delicious food that is gluten-free. And the crispy brussel sprouts are to die for! Get them before the menu changes for the spring.
Always good food,drinks and service.Great for pre theatre dinner.Most accommodating. In connection with seating.
We like Forno and go there often, mostly connected with the Everyman Theater nearby. The food is very good and interesting. The service is uneven re attentiveness although the waitstaff is always very lovely. We go pre-theater so they are very busy at the time.
We will continue to go back!
Fantastic as always . 2 small plates really works well!!
Hearty Italian fare, pleasant ambiance, and refreshing cocktails. My server, Monica was delightful.
A bit disappointed in service and quality of food.
Huge salads but chicken was over cooked.
Still didn't get a second fork when asked and had to borrow one from another guest.
Location was good if you are going to the Hippadrome.
Great experience only issue first 3 bottles of wine we ordered off list they were out of. We all had drinks but one women was only having wine and it took way to long in between knowing they were out and getting another choice.
Kevin was an awesome waiter and very knowledgeable about the menu and wines. The tables are a bit close. Great time before the Hippodrome show.
Malik, our server was excellent. Had the Charcuterie platter and then pasta for dinner. All was very good!
We went to Forno before a show at the Hippodrome across the street. We each ordered a salad and then split a "Farmer's Pizza" and an order of calamari.
The salads were good. Not great, not bad, but just fine. The pizza was a bit disappointing, with less than crisp thin crust and a general scarcity of toppings. Should be better for $15. The calamari was the worst of the bunch, seemingly cooked in old grease and with a sauce on the side that closely resembled ketchup and made a poor pairing with the squid. We did inform our server about the poor quality of the calamari. The service itself was generally quite good; pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. We will go back, but next time we will likely stick to the pasta.
I met with two friends for lunch before a business meeting. We were early so the restaurant was quiet. I would guess it can get noisy easily.
There is a good variety of salads, pizzas, and sandwiches on the lunch menu. The pizza was good; great crust. Although it was heavy on the salt. The chopped salad with salmon had a generous topping of salmon but the salad itself lacked interest. It was basically spring greens with no other vegetables to had crunch or interest. We weren't familiar with the soup of the day so the server offered up a tasting. We chose not to order the soup but it was great to know before ordering that it would not be to our liking. I would definitely eat there again if I were in the neighborhood.
Nice service, really great food!
My friends and I wanted to go out for lunch on a Saturday to Forno not knowing that they don't serve lunch on weekends. However, the brunch, though with few vegetarian selection was very good. The pizza was authentic Italian thin crust type. I would certainly recommend this restaurant.
I came to Forno because I was going to see the Ballet at the Hippodrome. The restaurant is right in front of the Theater and makes it so easy to get some drinks and food before a show without having to drive all over the city and repark.
They have a great selection of cocktails and great small plate options for a lighter meal. If you get a chance try the mussels and the Pumpkin Crème Brulee for desert. Will return
Wonderful menu -- short and full of interesting choices. The service was outstanding --- friendly and helpful. We had dinner here before a show at the Hippodrome, and it couldn't be more convenient -- and affordable too!
Love it always go here after theater and always enjoy ourselves
Food is always delicious. The only problem this time was the kitchen, food was very slow arriving to the table and everyone was going to the matinee at the Hippodrome. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone!
As always, my friends and I enjoy the seasonal Forno menus. As well as the service and the kind staff currently at Forno. Although we eat here on other occasions, before and after a Hippodrome Theatre performance makes this the ideal spot.
We were dissappointed in your carne pizza as it had a couple of big pieces of ham fat and gristle. We won’t be getting that again.
So grateful for this wonderful restaurant! We have season tickets to the Hippodrome, and Forno is such a standout in this area. Consistently great food, and great wait staff. They are quick to get the theater patrons out quickly to make the show. Only negative is it's very noisy, could use a little soundproofing. But everything else is wonderful!
Outstanding menu... friendly, enthusiastic staff... and a great location! What's not to love?
Love the restaurant. Unique food dishes along with delicious flatbread pizzas, along with stable favorites (crispy Brussels sprouts are not to be missed), great wine selection! You can do small plates or large orders, just apps, or full dinners. Ask for Kyle - he is a great waiter - friendly, attentive and caring!
We are Hippodrome season tickets holders and Forno's is our 'go-to' pre-theatre restaurant. We've never been disappointed except when I wait too long and can't get a reservation.
Delicious food and wonderful service! Great for date night and pre-show meal.
Great location. Tables a tad too close to each other, but not enough not to enjoy the delicious food and drinks!
Service was fantastic
Burgers were very good
Directly across the street from the Hippodrome.
Convenient and great.
Food was really good except my garlic shrimp capellini was ruined by too much undercooked raw tasting garlic. Should have sent it back
Forno was amazing. Our first time but it won’t be our last! Food was awesome and service spectacular!
Great martini. Not good selection of appetizers. Need a little more healthy selections. On pizzas also
Our group went to Forno during restaurant week. Great service, great food, nice ambiance. Across the street from Hippodrome.
Wonderful dinner Saturday night. Love the small option on the pasta, perfect amount. Brick oven pizzas were yummy. Cocktail menu was unique and the drinks we tried were great.
Wine list looked amazing. Service was great. Celebrating a birthday, they brought a delicious dessert for us to share.
I go here a lot, unfortunately soup was cold and fried oysters were raw. Oysters were taken off the check though
We had dinner at Forno prior to the New Year's Eve 9:30 show of John Oliver at the Hipp. The service and food was amazing and we had a window seat to watch the "uber" turnover in front of the theater. We love Forno and frequent there every tim!!e we can. Keep up the good work
I was disappointed in Forno after reading such positive reviews. The lobster pizza was fine but ordinary. The short rib entree and broccoli fettuccine were both extremely bland and both had a mushy, off-putting texture. The restaurant was practically empty on a Friday night, which should have been a clue, but I'm not from Baltimore and picked the restaurant on reviews alone. Would not recommend to anyone.
Everyone ordered something different, and all of our meals were excellent.
It was an enjoyable dinner with friends and extremely convenient prior to attending Everyman Theatre!
