    Food was good hut kitchen was obviously having serious problems tonight. Ordered a couple of appetizers and after 35 minutes I had to cancel them, according to the waitress, the kitchen system never got our order. The lasagna is great but tonight, it was partially burnt and left a terrible aftertaste. We will have to come back but not in the near future. Their Tiramisu has no equal in McAllen, it is superb.

    Valentine’s Dinner was fantastic!! Their preset menu provided great value and the food was delicious. Dessert was one of a kind both in presentation and mix of flavors. James, our server for the evening was excellent and took the time to explain all the items on the menu. His recommendations were on pointe. THANKS IL FORNO for a wonderful evening.

    This is a review for an event at the location for valentines day: Food was okay, what really bothered me was where we were sat, right by the kitchen away from the actual restaurant main dinning room where there was live music. Also, there was no mention of gratuity being included and it ended up being a 40$ tip for serving two people. Ended up paying almost 300$ for mediocre food and service. Will not be going back.

    Our waitress was wonderful. Fantastic service by Esperanza. We were disappointed that they ran out of pizzas at 7 pm and we could not order any. Food was ok. It was my mother in laws birthday and was not very happy they charged a $25 fee to bring our own cake! So call before to make sure they have pizzas and do the cake cutting at home.

    We went to spend the day in McAllen and have dinner in one of our favorite places, Il Forno. The service was excellent, but we had a bad experience with our food. We ordered the Grilled octopus, but they changed the recipe and gave us a salad with only 5 pieces of octopus, which was not good at all. The Lasagna had canned tomato sauce and overcooked pasta. The pizza also needed more time in the oven. We were very disappointed with our food, all our food was under par. We will not be coming back, even though before, this was one of our favorite restaurants. I am not sure if they have a new chef or why the food quality and taste changed so much.

    It’s our favorite place. Never disappoints, especially when we have a really great server. Hope!! She’s always friendly and knowledgeable about the menu.
