My girlfriend and I were in the mood for Italian, so we looked this place up on TripAdvisor, and liked what we saw. When we got there, the place was busy, but we were still seated in less than 10 minutes. Their servers were quick to respond and we had appetizers and drinks in less than 10 minutes, and our main courses were served within 20 minutes of sitting down. We had the caprese appetizer. She had the lasagna and I had the spaghetti carbonara. Both the appetizer and the entrees were excellent. We took a piece of chocolate cake home for later, and it did not disappoint.

Have enjoyed II Forno's for some time; always good food. I had spagetti and meat sauce for the first time - excellent. Also mussels in a red sauce. The hot Santino sandwich is my first choice...love it.

This was an excellent restaurant. Alicia was our waitress and she was friendly and professional. I ordered the chicken parm with house salad and capellini. Others ordered a supreme pizza and penne ala vodka.

The food was excellent and Alicia did a great job.

If you want real Italian Antipasto Salad this is the place to come . Garlic Knots are amazing . This place can get busy but I had a good time and service was excellent .

We contracted with Il Forno for food for our wedding and WOW it was so so amazing! He went with the lasagna, cheese ravioli alfredo, and baked ziti with salad and bread… everything was absolutely delicious! Mick cares so much about the product that he puts out, so much that he actively sought out involvement in the making of our timeline so that food was at it’s best quality when served. It showed showed his passion for food. The best part about having Il Forno cater our wedding is that anytime we want to re-live our first meal as a married couple, we can head right to their Lakeland location! Definitely looking forward to it. Thank you SO much Mick and your team!
