    This was the first time at Forno. My wife is an East Coast Jersey girl who’s always looking for local Italian eateries to try, so we decided to give it a go to celebrate our anniversary with the kids. We were greeted by a friendly hostess who quickly took us to our table, and within minutes our waitress greeted us. Wish I recalled her name, but she was very pleasant and efficient. We had water service quickly followed by drink orders and appetizers. We ordered the bread basket and Heirloom Tomato bruschetta sampler to start. For dinner entrees, we chose the Tagliatelle Bolognese and added a Veal meatball, Pork Milanese, Asparagus Gnudi “Cacio e Pepe” and the kids ordered pizzas; one classic red sauce Calabrese and the other Bianca Frairielli e Salsiccia. For dessert we had the Vanilla Creme Brûlée and Pope’s Chocolate Salame. Our appetizers were good. The bruschetta comes with Avocado spread, red onion, basil, tuscan vinaigrette. I’m not particularly fond of avocado, but it was really good served this way. My Bolognese was good, but not blown away by it… the chef did spice it up for me with extra crushed red peppers, so I enjoyed the heat. I wasn’t a fan of the meatball. My wife had the pork, which unfortunately was very dry. She enjoyed the cauliflower and sauce that came with it, but ultimately disliked the pork. She ordered Gnudi, but did not like it either. To Forno’s credit, they offered her something else to eat, but she declined. Management took the meal off our bill without us asking, which was very much appreciated. The pizzas were both very good, bonus for crumbled sausage. The star of the night for us was dessert!! The creme brûlée was amazing and my son said the pope’s chocolate was the best dessert he’s ever had in his whole life!! LOL! Our server asked if we were out celebrating any special occasion, so we did receive one dessert on the house. Overall, our experience was very good. My wife and I will probably go back again for pizza and dessert.

    Last minute table for dinner. Nice and busy as usual so we were lucky to get in. Had nice wine pairings with gnocchi and pizza. Had to get pasta to go and it melted the box to the table. Guess it was nice and hot! Also was a bit too oniony. Pizza was good and plenty large to bring half home.

    One of my favorite places. In fact, came here for my birthday celebration dinner with a good friend. We split everything which gave us a chance to try more dishes - I always get pretty much the same thing each time but it's always amazing. We sat at the bar which is even more fun bc you can engage with the chefs by the pizza oven if they have time.
    Forno Osteria & Bar, Hyde ParkResponded on October 4, 2023

Sitting at the bar and engaging with our chefs by the pizza oven can indeed add to the fun and interactive dining experience. Thank you for your continued support and for making us a part of your special celebrations. We look forward to welcoming you back soon for more memorable moments!

    Went to their Bolognese Tuesday. The special is outstanding. Salad, bread and a bowl of bolognese. Can’t beat the value. Great atmosphere. Little noisy because of the space. Allow time to find a parking spot.

    We had the wonderful Bolo Tuesday special with the veal meatball and it was fantastic !! I don't know if I will get a chance to comment on a problem but for an appetizer, we (4 people) ordered the Heirloom tomato Bruschetta which is fine that it was cut into 4 pieces but the bread was soooo hard, I had to try and cut it with a knife, over and over and it was even difficult to cut, so I could eat it in small pieces as it was too hard to bite a section off !!
