Great dining experience.

Service was good. Despite a very busy room that night, the hostess and manager went out of their way more than once to accommodate some special needs of someone in our party, which everyone at the table really appreciated.

On the food side, everything was delicious starting with the roasted veggie plate and burrata starters. The sole was as good as I've ever tasted; fresh fish, perfectly seasoned and crusted. My girlfriend opted for the osso buco risotto tossed in parmesan. A whole block of osso buco sat in the middle of her plate surrounded by a cheesy risotto infused with the flavors of the braised veal shank. In a nod to my her low-carb diet, she ate only about half of the risotto portion... which took incredible will power!

Although we did not take advantage of it on this first visit, the cheese selection alone warrants another visit. And no question, there will be another visit next time I am in town!

Holy Jesus this place is Awesome

Firstly, the food is amazing. Their bolognese sauce is super tasty. Their bread is great. Their house salad is just a house salad but their house dressing...that's another story...its soooo good...and if you get take out may I suggest you dip the bread in it...for an absolutely yummy experience.

what else...their other pasta dishes are good...ooh especially their spinach ravioli...mother of god its amazing.

The atmosphere is great...lots of families early in the evening if you're young and cool like me... come later at night.

The staff is uber friendly...they make you feel super comfortable...totes an amazing place to mangia!!

The menu offers a variety of of traditional and unique Italian dishes. The ravioli is divine! Evening on the patio is my favorite - a nice romantic meal.

Best Italian Food and Pizza in Santa Monica!

I'm new to Santa Monica and was lucky to find such a great eatery. The food is delicious! I've tried a few pasta dishes which I have to say I wasn't too impressed with but the Italian pizza is superb. If you can afford to splurge every once in awhile do it here it's great!

The Best

Il Lorno is the best restaurant on the West Side. The food is great and the prices are resonable. If you are only going to eat at one restaurant while in LA...this should be the one. And remember it is IL FORNO, not Il Fornio which does not even compare.

This is one of the BEST Italian food I've ever had! Not to mention, their staff is ABSOLUTELY friendly and sincere! The owner of Il Forno has approached me a couple of time to even make sure that our experience there is a pleasant one! If you're in Santa Monica and are dieing for Italian, you've GOT to definetely go here! It won't be a dissapointment! The scenery is beautiful, and the service is GREAT! Also, the prices are really good too, esp for the big servings they have. It's quite filling, and not too much of a 'hole' in the pocket!

Yummy Power Meals!

They have power meals for $5.00. You get an ample portion, and a tasty piece of bread. Flavorful meals and very filling. Dinner is a little more pricey, but the food is worth every penny. Great wine selection. Romantic setting and free parking! Friendly staff too!
