Forno Osteria & Bar, Hyde Park
Yummy food, good wine, great experience. Love this place.
We enjoyed our meal and the service was good. I was in the mood for pasta and wish there were more pasta options to choose from.
Love this place for the environment and food. I recommend for dates.
Great! My favorite restaurant!
Service was good. A little slow at the end. Food was very good but non pasta entree choices are limited and expensive. We were celebrating a birthday and our server recognized that and brought out a dessert with candle.
Good food and enjoyed the atmosphere. Had to wait a little while to order after being seated. Overall, we would return. Would not recommend to take children.
Great food and great service. My wife and I sat at the bar and ate dinner. We'll be back!
Great experience. Great wine. Loved the pizza!
Celebrating our return to see our daughters at Xavier. You are always a must visit on our trips to Cincinnati We love your place!
Wonderful food, beautiful environment; great service! Enjoyed our experience there! Will definitely be back!
Abby was awesome
We were greeted and promptly seated. Jamie waited on us and was outstanding.
Abbi was our Server and did a super job!
Cocktails are delicious and different.
Bruschetta plate was tasty and 9 of us shared 2 plates.
Especially liked the pate with capers.
Mushroom risotto was yummy. And the wood fired pizza had a nice char to it .
Some had pasta dishes which they said was delicious.
Some had meat entrees and their plates were empty !
We were too full to try any desserts !
Lively ambiance and nice busy crowd!
Will return. ...
We're impressed by everything each time we visit. Bravissimo!
We had a wonderful meal with good friends. They had never been before and really enjoyed it. Will be back.
We love Forno's but - Why Oh Why - have 2 of our favorite & unique menu choices been replaced by the most banal possible items. Menu choices that drew us to Forno's as a unique & authentic experience! Not just another Italian pizza place. The original & delicious arugula salad is now a Caesar??? There must be 1000 restaurants in Cincinnati offering Caesar salad. And the absolutely delicious Brsised Lentils are replace with Farmers Potatoes, braised chunks of potatoes with herbs, boring!! Please bring back that which differentiates Forno's from a 100 other places!
The food is consistently wonderful! Our daughter & her boyfriend were in town and she requested going to Forno on Saturday night. They enjoyed it as much as we do!
Wonderful food in a great atmosphere. Never disappoints.
This little joint is a must for Italian lovers! The food was amazing and the service was impressive. I believe that we would’ve loved the restaurant anyway; but Hailey truly made our experience! Her recommendations were spot on and we loved her personality and attentiveness. We had the eggplant Parmesan as an appetizer (is listed as a side) and it was delicious! The Bolognese was phenomenal, the gnocchi was unlike any other we’ve tried, crispy on the outside with a pillowy middle and we sopped up the sauce with our outstanding pizza crust. We did a half Elena and half Quattro pizza, both were delicious...but the Elena was a recommendation from Hailey and quite possibly my favorite slice of pizza ever...and I love pizza (typically with red sauce!). For the price you simply will not find a better spot than Forno! It was our first time, but we will be back....soon!!
Food is wonderful and staff is amazing! From shareables like mushroom risotto, truffle cream corn, and Roman artichokes, to fantastic pasta dishes, wood fired pizza, or larger entrees, the food refined with a nice wine list and great cocktails, but the atmosphere is the casual feel of a neighborhood bar and restaurant. The result is perfect!
Ashley is the best!!!!
Food was delicious!
We had a very nice and friendly server who answered our questions about wine and the menu. Our food was so delicious! We will be back again!!!
The food was great and our server was awesome!
Food was great. Service by Maria was excellent. First time there and will return
Our sever was great & the food was good, but the restaurant was very loud at 8:30pm.
We had a good experience! I would say it was tasty but not life-changing. The atmosphere was great and the perfect place for a date. We expected a little more flavor/creativity for the price, but still satisfying. We will go back but only after exploring more Cincinnati options .
Great place. Definitely one of the best Italian places in Cincinnati. The quality of the ingredients and the authentic method of preparation certainly makes a difference. Will definitely recommend this for families. Musts include the Elena Truffle Pizza, the Truffled Cream Corn, and the Tiramisu, among many others. We will certainly be back.
Our first time at the restaurant - after play dinner at 4:30 PM on a Sunday afternoon. There were several tables occupied when we arrived abut it got busier before we left. We had an excellent server, Laura, who split salads for us and was most helpful in describing some of the dishes. I went in hungry for short ribs but ended up with the wild boar ragu - it was outstanding. The other three in the party were similarly delighted with their choices. We'll be back!
Great food and service
Lovely evening - great staff!
Great food etc. Small portions for the price.
Eric, our server, was pretty inattentive. The level of service is usually much better there. My quiche was lukewarm, but tasty.
As always , a fabulous meal !
This was our second visit to Forno with friends. It was a great experience all around. Both the food and the service were spot on. The pasta bolognese, and the Four season pizza. The pizzas remind us of what we get in Italy.
Always so good.
We love the choice of indoor and outdoor seating. The wine and beer offerings are varied and good. Our server was very knowledgeable. We loved being able to taste more of the menu by being able to get two choices (halves) for the pasta and pizza. It was a fun night. Parking is a challenge!
Sat outside for brunch. So amazing, perfect day.
I have never been disappointed by the food and service at Forno!
The wild boar pasta is excellent! You can’t go wrong with any of the dishes. Get there if you haven’t already!
