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.

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.

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.

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.
