The avocado bruschetta and the pepperoni pizza were both delicious. I would recommend both. The service was quick, efficient, but not too invasive. The wait staff and hostesses were welcoming. I would.....and have.....highly recommend Forno.

Food under seasoned. Our service was terrible. Left out on porch in rain! Others around us observed to have good service however. Maybe we should have ordered pizza rather than appetizers. Attractive restaurant, but expensive, disappointing dinning experience.

This was an excellent choice for a small birthday dinner. Delicious food and drinks, a cool atmosphere, and great service! Setting up a reservation was painless. Only complaint is that it was quite noisy making it a bit difficult to hear across the table. All in all an enjoyable experience I’d do again! (PS try the Tuscan roasted potatoes as a side! they’re amazing!)

I go to forno pretty often so when my birthday weekend came around I knew exactly where I wanted to end it. My favorite brunch spot in Columbus!! Forno. Service was amazing as usual, food was amazing as usual, the music was amazing as usual. My party consisted of 9 ladies all together and every single one of us enjoyed our time at forno from beginning to the end. Thank you to the staff and the manager for the outstanding service and hospitality.

I just absolutely love Forno. I get the pasta forno every time. I asked for the chicken not to be burnt because 2 times before this occasion, the chicken has been burnt and inedible. Such a delicious dish when done correctly.
