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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
