Delicious food and great service. A great place to go if you want to make a great impression
We’ve gone several times but this last time was a bust. We were told bus boy left and only 2 waiters. One we had didn’t talk much or offer or check on us much. We had to flag him down. Other guest got meals late. It was a mess this time around.
Food was excellent...especially the appetizers! Waiters were stretched fairly thin, service was a little slow but did ok considering . Will definitely go back.
My first time I really enjoyed the pasta with meat sauce. I also tasted the lasagna casserole it was very good. Quick service and great wine selection. I will return and tell everyone I know what a great experience I had.
Very nice dining experience. Great wine and food delicious. Made a reservation on Open Table and was promptly seated when arrived. May 25, 2019. Thank You.

Food always Delicious
We made a reservation for 7pm via opentable. We called before to check if we could come in earlier we and was obliged, thankfully. The ambiance, the amazing food and our sweet and knowledgeable waitress completely made the experience. I would recommend this beautiful restaurant to anybody. All of our dishes were so delicious and it was good to chase it down with an espresso before heading out. Our waters were always filled, drinks replenished and food came out in a timely manner and all together. I’d like to have many more special occasions, date nights or quick espresso at lunch at Il Forno!
Fuimos a comer a las 5 pm, hora del dinner y solo había una pareja de comensales. La comida estuvo riquísima, y el servicio estuvo bien. Solo que no había nada de ambiente, ni música.
Amazing experience, the service was amazing our waitress was very attentive and extremely nice I had the sirloin which was the steak of the day (medium rare) and it was incredible by far the best steak I’ve ever had my girlfriend had the lasagna and it was also superb overall an amazing experience, atmosphere and restraunt would definitely come here time and time again !
Food and service were excellent. Tables for 2 were rather small and close together. Noise level made it difficult to have a conversation.
Great food great service woul highly recommend this place to everyone
Food was great. Service great. Sat at the bar and Miguel the bartender was on point.
The service was poor and slow. A smile would have been nice.
Great food...great service.
Por enésima ocasión, reiteró es el mejor italiano Del Valle de Texas y de Tamaulipas!
Great food and service.
Great quality food and service, reasonable price, love it
Really enjoyed the bread and oil. Tried the spinach stuffed pasta - it's made in house, but it wasn't what I was hoping for. I did enjoy the dessert - a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream in espresso. Tasty, but my next trip I will stick with traditional dishes.
Great food and service was wonderful. I will recommend to friends
Food and service was spectacular!
We’re in McAllen on weekends and had noticed Il Forno, always with a full parking lot. After checking the menu on Open Table, we made the reservation for a 5:30 seating.
We were served quickly and graciously. The pizza was really excellent.
Friday nights always great dinner
The tables were very close together and we had a difficult time holding a conversation.
Great service, friendly staff, wonderful food, best value for your money! Recommend to reserve table
Service was good food was delicious I will definitely go back to try other meals
Our server Tony was wonderful. The food was great but they didn't have some of the wines on the menu. Loved the atmosphere, music, décor and we will definitely return to try other menu items.
Wonderful evening. Food always fantastic.
Great place for real Italian food.
Food was subpar. Our waiter took a while to attend us. The only good thing was the violinist who waited till the end to play something good. Hey
Everything was wonderful but it would have been nice to know that the four course meal was preselected instead off the before we arrived. Other than that everything was perrfect.
Me negaron el servicio, me dijeron que fue un error que OpenTable me hubiera aceptado la reservación y no me atendieron, en un 14 de febrero y no se comunicaron con migo para avisarme con anterioridad, solo me negaron el servicio cuando llegué al restaurante, hacharon a perder mi día. No confiar las reservaciones de OpenTable con ellos.
They denied me the service, they told me that it was a mistake that OpenTable had accepted my reservation and they did not take care of me, on February 14 and they did not contact me to let me know, they only denied me the service when I arrived at the restaurant, to lose my day. Do not trust OpenTable reservations with them.
Other then placing my reservation on Monday two days before my dinner and having to wait at the bar for 20 min everything else was ok to say, a little disappointed that mcallen still can’t get the concept of open table!!!
Great dining experience! From staff's attention to the delicious food, one great experience overall.
Always good food and service!!!
Food and service are great. Does get a bit loud when they have a full house!
A pleasant meal after going to the movies. I was very glad to see that the wine list is now just that - a printed list that I can peruse. I had the veal Parmesan which was very good. My companions had a seafood pasta - also no complaints.
Was a lovely night. Got seated right away with reservation. Service was on point and the food was outstanding
Excellent food and people! We went to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and had a truly wonderful time. Our lobster thermidors were cooked to perfection and service was spectacular. As a bonus, the manager took a picture of us, and also presented us with a free dessert. The Tiramissu was delicious. We are long time customers of the restaurant and were happy to see it busy. We'll be back again for sure! Thanks to the restaurant for showing us a really good time and making us feel at home.
