Great Happy Hour Specials from 5-630. Great service, great food and drinks. Couldn’t have been much better
Great food and excellent service. You have to try the cauliflower.
The food is delicious and the restaurant is small enough to not be too loud. The service is quick as well.
Best restaurant in Omaha, at least one of the best!!
We got the margherita pizza and it was delicious, as always!! Quality ingredients, quick service, great staff. Obsessed with FORNO!!
NOT SURE WHY I HAVE TO FILL THIS OUT. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz
great food, great atmosphere, prompt service by Alice, good for groups and hungry college students!
One of the best restaurants in Omaha. The food is fresh and creative. The service is attentive and friendly.
Dined on a busy night. Split the pizza and salad. Good portions. Limited liquor options but good place to dine. We will go back!
Love this place! Food is delicious, staff is great . Go several times a month
Fabulous Weekend brunch! Loved the sexy Italian take on breakfast standards. This menu is not duplicated anywhere. Be sure to try the Budino Doughnut - absolutely sinful!
Great for a big party that had people coming and going. Awesome food and drinks and service
We enjoyed our first visit to Forno. It was a little noisy due to a large table with children, but they left and it was much quieter. The server was friendly and informative. The food was very good. I especially enjoyed the variety of cheeses and sauces on my platter. We will definitely be back.
Kids birthday party at 8:00 on a Saturday ruined the whole meal
I’ve been 3x now. I probably won’t be back. It’s loud and over priced. The server was fine until he got a few more tables. Every time we’d ask him for something he’d walk away during mid sentence. Not found if it.
So glad I finally made it in to try Forno!
We stopped in for brunch and it was all delicious.
The buongiorno pizza and Tigelle with jam and butter were favorites, and the budino doughnut is made specially for Forno by Bob's doughnuts so that's a must try.
If you love food, get yourself to Forno.
Dante has long been one of our favorite restaurants in Omaha. This was our first visit to Dante's younger sibling Forno and we enjoyed it as much or more than Dante. The pizza was outstanding and we had some wonderful shared dishes including duck ragu with rigatoni, roasted whole cauliflower with cheese sauce and a cheese plate. Everything was delicious. We took advantage of Forno's policy to waive the usual $20 corkage fee if the customer agrees to give a glass of wine to a diner at another table. We also liked the urban street vibe with a table overlooking the vibrant Blackstone district street scene. The atmosphere and service was casual and friendly but at the same time classy.
My friend and I shared some delicious dishes: olives, roasted cauliflower, and a mushroom pizza. Service was prompt and friendly. An added bonus- we brought our own wine and had the corkage fee waived by sharing a little with another patron! We also got to sample their house-made sambuca, which is delightful. We’ll be back!
Consistently of high quality. Fun and approachable. Always new plates on the menu. Great staff.
Seriously sooooo freaking good! The Tigelle is literally the best thing that’s ever happened to charcuterie. Love the interior and the chill vibe. Will most certainly be back!
We had a fantastic meal - great recommendations from our server! And loved being able to try several items and share with the entire table. One of our new favorite spots in town!
Super knowledgeable server, delicious food and wonderful atmosphere! One of our favorite spots in Omaha.
The food was awesome. Chet Coenen and the wait staff treated our table very well. We will be returning to try new menu items.
Cauliflower was good and our server was great. The siccillia pizza was NOT good. Wings are very small and not much meat. Food overall was bland.
Forno is always a fantastic dining experience -- The tigelle is an amplified charcuterie board that is the perfect way to start your meal, but the dish that cannot be passed up is the cauliflower with fontina fondue. Best way I've had cauliflower, hands down. Wonderful way to celebrate my birthday, thank you Forno!
Upbeat atmosphere, multiple gluten free options, and friendly service.
First time going,
Pretty cool spot, small but not cramped,
and the noise was tolerable.
We had the meat/cheese board, weak for $$.
For mains I had the sticky ribs, which were great, only complaint here was there was no accompaniment at all with this dish...strange.
The wife had the pork shank pasta, which too was good.
We brought our own wine, and the cool thing about this, is you pass a glass to another table for the corking fee, a great idea!!
We would return.
Interesting menu- our favorite was the roasted cauliflower.
Our server was highly attentive, never intrusive and helped our family group of 8 kick off a fantastic New Year's Eve dinner. The omnivore and vegetarian charcuterie boards started things off well and were extra delightful when paired with the tigelle bread that is specially made on a press at Forno.
Our group shared several pizzas, had lovely conversations where we could always hear one another, and our glasses were always full. We were surprised and wowed by the fun shots (non-alcoholic) our server brought at the end of the meal for us to toast the night and one another!
Would highly recommend coming here with close friends and family to share a meal and a beautiful atmosphere together. Bravo Forno!
Went for an experience with the ambience of Italy where we traveled to this summer. The food and service was good. My squash soup was amazing but the value to amount was a little short. I would still get it again and just deal with it cause it was great. My wife thought her pizza she ordered was average. We loved that they wave the corkage fee if you share your wine you bring in. We love sharing our food with each other so sharing our wine was no problem for us. We will definitely go back
Forno is a must visit. We visited for brunch (and had been there for dinner before as well). Brunch was great because it had the classics like eggs and bacon yet some other interesting options. I had the beef and pork ragu, which was amazing. We will be back for sure!!
Just so, so ... biscuit was tough and gravy just ok. BF was just ok but poutine beef, pork was the best dish.
We tried Forno for our work Christmas Lunch on Friday the 13th. The tigelle was spectacular and lunch and drinks were very good.
Best weekend brunch in Omaha! Unique brunch items you won't find anywhere else, as well as old favorites with an Italian twist.
Poor service, food was meh, and overpriced
Everything about Forno was excellent, excepting only the parking situation. Parking is limited, and it can be necessary to park a few blocks away. People should be aware of this so they can allow extra time to find parking.
Thanks for the review, Rachel! Just want to make sure you are aware of our dedicated parking lots: one to the west of our building that's always available, and one south across Farnam that is available at dinner and brunch. Hope to see you back soon
Halibut entree was awesome.
Excellent meat/cheese tray. Service was uneven and it’s fairly loud, but nice lighting and the hanging plants are a nice touch. We’ll be back.
Forno had an enjoyable atmosphere and DELICIOUS meat and cheese board. I repeat - DELICIOUS. The pizza was pretty good but not spectacular. It was the $7 margarita pizza special. The service was a bit slow for how busy it was that night.
