Il Forno a Legna
With Neapolitan-style wood-fired pizzas, hearty Italian dishes, and a great selection of beers, wine, & cocktails. Starting with the spicy olive oil, fresh homemade bread to our delicous pastas and perfectly cooked steaks to finishing with our house-made Desserts and espressos, Il Forno a Legna will be your new favorite Italian restaurant in the entire Rio Grande Valley.
It’s a nice small quiet place. Staff was very attentive. Food was very tasty. Loved the pizza.
Great food from beginning to dessert, great service, knowledgeable wait staff and a nice wine list. The airline chicken with risotto and flan were both delicious. Make a reservation, restaurant was full by 6:30.
The staff are amazing. Great attitude.
Good is always excellent. Best Italian food in town.
Always a great evening.
That’s why we keep going back.
The best! Wait staff always attentive.
Food is superb.
Siempre es un placer cenar en Il Forno, solo deben prestar un poco mas de atención al servicio. No es un restaurant de comida rápida, y tampoco económico. Los grandes esfuerzos de cocina deben ser respaldados por los meseros y siempre dejan un espacio por llenar.
En verdad deseo que me atiendan mejor! Porque la comida y los vinos son inmejorables!
We absolutely LOVE the Il Forno restaurants.
Best in town.
The food was fantastic and so was the service. The menu was different than dinner, but still a lot of variety, and everything we had was delicious.
Everything was great. The only complaint was my husband's pasta was cold. Will visit again.
We tied the knot August 2, 2019. We wanted to go somewhere special and we found this cute place. We are glad we decided to celebrate our evening with you. We heard good reviews from others who have been there. We enjoyed every moment from the tea-light candle placed on our table, to the bread and dipping sauce. Our meals were perfect and we were pleased with our waiter Cristian and overall the experience of dining at ll Forno a Legna. Thank you! -Mr. & Mrs. Pastore

Best pizza in Mcallen
Enjoyed the food and the all around excellent restaurant could carry on a conversation with no noise
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.

Servers & Bartender - the best!
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.
