We thoroughly enjoyed our meal. Everything we ordered was delicious and presented beautifully. The servers and bartender were incredibly attentive and friendly. We will return on our next visit to McAllen.
We had a good time with good food and service. You may consider lessening the sound volume. It was too high.
Great Service !!!
Food and waiter were great, but bar was so slow that drinks came after we had finished our appetizer.
It was our first time gathering as friends since the pandemic started. Service was bad. Food was cold and had to be returned to be warmed up. Checks were wrong. It was disappointing.
Our waiter, George was great as was the food

Celebrated a Birthday for a family member and we had a great time. The food and service was excellent. Will be coming back soon.
always a wonderful meal at this restaurant. if you go, please try the new rabbit dish, it is wonderful and good value for the dollar. I have never had a bad meal here.
We were sited right away and hostess and server were really nice. Wine list has great variety and price is also great! Bread is made at site which is very nice and spiced oil is fantastic! Food portions are good! Créeme brûlée was outstanding! Definitely will return
It was okay
Had a wonderful evening. As always.
Best Italian in town.
The dishes are prepared and presented with lots of care. Taste is beyond good and combined with great service made for a pleasant dining experience.
Great food. And victor was awesome
Table seated after us was served before we were and it took a while for someone to come after telling us they’d be right with us.
Walter is a gem.
Food was fantastic. Pasta was cooked perfectly.
Thank you for being the best Italian restaurant in town.
We really enjoyed the food and service on Valentine's Day! The sous vide strip steak was excellent. The expresso cake was a joyous surprise.
Thank you for joining us on Valentine's Day! Looking forward to serving you again.
Not disappointed. Not the Il Forno we remember.
Major changes need to happen.
Sorry, not sure we will be back.
Everything was great. Had a fantastic time there to celebrate my birthday
Thank you for your rating, looking forward to serving you.
Our reservation was at 8:45, we were told that the table wouldn’t be ready. At the time, that we had to wait 15 additional min. After we were seated we didn’t really have a server all we got was water and bread, it took 30 to when we were able to get someone to order a drink. Drink sat at the bar for an additional 20 min. Nobody came back with drinks or to take our food order. We left and told the hostess why.

The pizza is good and that’s about it. We ordered several pasta dishes and they were ok, nothing worth coming back for.

We had a wonderful evening.
The food was amazing. Loved the music!
Best Italian food in McAllen! They worked hard before the pandemic and continue to work hard to provide quality food to their customers!
Thank you for your review! Look forward to serving you again.
It was the birthday of my fiancé and his son.
Was expecting more due to anniversary was requested at the end it was just regular dinner.
Wonderful, as always. Not crowded, which was nice, and the service was great tonight.
Thank you for your review! Look forward to serving you again.
Food was great as always! Except the service was a bit lacking as our waiter would take long breaks from our table, and was noted on his phone at the entrance multiple times.
Great food. Clients loved it.
Food looks nothing like the menu. The pollo ala parmigiana was drenched in oil and the pasta as well. The dish was served cold and almost makes me wonder if it was made fresh.
The pictures on the menu and online look nothing like the actual food served. For the price I expected a better dish than one would find at Olive Garden. That is the saddest part.
The positive? Great hostess, great waiter, nice place, nice atmosphere. Everything was perfect except the dish.
The pizza my wife ordered was incredible and saved the meal but would not return.
Great service. Food/flavor is not worth the price in my opinion
Large wine menu. Appetizer and entrees were all very good. This was our first time here but we will absolutely be back.
Pizzas were amazing!! Good service
Everyone and everything was amazing! Food is so fresh!
Great service and food was excellent! Was able to have conversation because of the noise level was low. Had some great music in the background. Highly recommend.
