Nice Neighborhood place

I just had the best take out pizza I've had in years. Yey Fornello.

Amazing Pasta!

I live right down the street from this restaurant, so needless to say I dine here pretty often. My boyfriend and I went to dinner a few weeks ago. This place is special for us, because this is where we had our first date. We started with our usual bottle of wine, but I was disappointed that they were out of my usual pasta dish. After consulting with the waiter, I attempted to order the special, and asked for it "... view more

AVOID DELIVERY if you don't like cold pizza

We ordered our pizza on a Wednesday night and it took over 2 HOURS for our 'cold' pizza to be delivered. Thin crust was borderline pan. Overall it was a huge disappointment.

Authentic Italian that really hits the spot.

Fornello has quickly become the go-to restaurant for my husband and I. The menu features all of the standard Italian fare, but also dishes that you will not find anyplace else (for example, the Pasta Dello Chef - bowtie pasta, mushrooms, sundried tomatoes in a unique balsamic sauce - truly outstanding). Servers are friendly and knowledgable - this is the kind of place that they remember you and what you ordered last... view more

Amazing service!

I took my boyfriend to Fornello last night for his birthday, and we had such a good time. Neither of us had ever been there before, although we live right around the corner, and we loved it. We had a couple of bottles of wine (Crow Canyon merlot and Rock Castle pinot noir), the pasta romantica, the rigatoni verdura, and mussels with white sauce for an appetizer. Everything was delicious. And, after finding out it was... view more

Delicious Italian - Can't Beat the Gorgonzola/Blue Cheese Gnocchi

All around great Italian - especially for Uptown - but, you can't beat the gorgonzola/blue cheese gnocchi in alfredo sauce! You'll likely enjoy this dish even if you despise gorgonzola cheese or think this dish sounds weird. It's not on the normal menu - I had it as a special about 6 months ago. I called yesterday but it wasn't being offered as a special. Without pressing the issue further, the order taker put me... view more

Great Pizza

This is one of those hidden gems in Chicago. There are so many great restaurants to choose from, but definately the best pizza offered in that area.

Absolutely fabulous!!!

My first time at Fornello was last night for a girls' night out dinner. Our waiter was very attentive and had a good sense of humor. The entire waitstaff, even including the bus boy, were wonderful and friendly. The atmosphere was cosy -we all thought it would be a perfect date restaurant. The food? PHENOMINAL!!! My favorite: fried calamari (very lightly battered - the best in the city), cappellacci di zucca (I... view more

I LOVE this restaurant...

There must be something in the very air crystals here that creates an especially relaxed and comfortable environment for me, although the food is wonderful too. I usually begin with the Portobello mushroom appetizer, delicious although not an appetizer of bigger portion. But the sauce they use with this is so tasty. Its good with bread and great with pizza. So save your sauce if you order pizza. For an entree I like ... view more

Very good for dining in...

...but beware if you're getting delivery or carry out. It's hard to believe the dining room and carryout sides of Fornello are served by the same kitchen.

While everything I've ever eaten here has been hot, flavorful and carefully prepared and presented while in the restaurant, the quality of carryout has been consistently disappointing. Pizza is dry and flavorless with an unpalatable spongy crust; the pasta dish
