    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 !!

    Forno Osteria & Bar, Hyde ParkResponded 1 day ago

    We're thrilled to hear that you enjoyed the Bolo Tuesday special with the veal meatball, but we're sorry to hear about the issue with the Heirloom tomato Bruschetta.

We appreciate your feedback, and we'll certainly address this with our team to ensure that it's served as it should be in the future.

    I was looking for a good pasta meal. My wife had visited Forno before with friends, however, I had never dined there. Apparently, I should have been! The service was excellent: attentive without fawning. The food was also delicious. We shared a couple apps and one meal. The Veal meatballs in sauce were perfect as was the Arancini di Riso. Out Bresaola Carpaccio salad was also delicious.. The main course was Tagliatelle Bolognese. The pasta done to perfection and the gravy delightful. I will be returning.

    Dinner out with friends and we had a nice time. Bruschetta appetizer was very good. Friend had salmon dish and liked it. 2 friends ordered the bolognese and really liked it. I had Napoli pizza and it was not as good as I expected. I probably would not order it again but the bolognese I tasted was wonderful, which I will order next time. 1 friend had the crème brûlée and really enjoyed it. My husband had the tiramisu and loved it. Overall, a very nice dinner.

    This was a special wine and dinner event which was outstanding. As usual Forno was top notch. The service was friendly & flawless while the food was beyond their usual great (6 out of 5 stars). The wine was matched perfectly with each course. Christian P was the master of ceremonies and ran the kitchen personally. He greeted all the diners personally making everyone feel welcome. Forno Hyde Park remains my favorite restaurant. Job well done!

    Had Arancini appetizer which my wife and I really enjoyed…recommended by our server who was fantastic. We had the Parmigiana pizza which was disappointing as the cheese topping was too rich and creamy for our taste. The crust was great but we were expecting better since we have always had such great food at Forno in past.

    We ate on the patio, and it was actually quieter than in the inside restaurant. The patio was a bit cramped and right on the sidewalk, but it was surprisingly quiet and pleasant. The food was great - while the menu is not extensive, it was very authentic, and all of it was delicious. The feel is more osteria (bistro) than fancy, but the pricing was somewhere between.

Plenty of time to visit, quiet enough that we could talk/hear each other easily but didn't feel out of place enjoying a good laugh. Lots of delicious appies, pasta, pizza options. Desserts were great, too! Server forgot to check back on drinks for awhile, but generally was very helpful and friendly. Overall, excellent choice!

    Very odd but it was an off night for the kitchen. Pizzas either doughy or burnt. I will say that there are too many tables in the space. Your chair is constantly being jarred by the poor waitstaff trying to negotiate the maze of tables.Now I know why people prefer the bar.

    I ordered the cacio de Pepe and it is not like the normal dish. It looked like gnocchi with a pesto sauce on it. It was still good, but that was in fact the correct dish. The food was good and my friends enjoyed theirs as well. Service was decent. I did write it was for a birthday but they didn’t do anything to celebrate it… but the table behind us had. It wasn’t a big deal but it was put on the reservation when made through open table.

    I went to forno for my birthday and brought my mother and grandmother. First of all it took a good 5-7 minutes to get a waiter to acknowledge us. The pesto pasta was not good at all my mom described the dish as tasting like ramen noodles with soupy green sauce on top. I tried her dish and agreed. The pesto was very runny and it felt like we could make the same dish at home. The noodles were virtually tasteless like water and had a thin texture almost that off a bottom shelf ramen from kroger. We also ordered a basket of bread once we had got our entrees and thought the bread would come out fast because it was just bread and butter. After waiting 15 minutes for bread we saw the waiter look at us as if he forgot to ask the kitchen for bread and then 5 minutes later came up to our table and apologized blaming the kitchen for being busy. We waited another 5-10 minutes when finally a different waiter dropped off the bread after we had already finished eating our entree. The food was so expensive we ate all of it even though my grandmother was unimpressed with her spaghetti dish and my mom was more than unimpressed with her pesto dish. I’d say for the price point of this restaurant you’d be better off going to scottie’s downtown cincinnati for authentic italian food. We’ve been to italy and almost every time the restaurant would drop bread off at the table for free as an appetizer with olive oil, vinegar and butter…but an italian restaurant in cincinnati charges 6$ for a bread basket, it’s almost laughable. I’d laugh if I didn’t walk out feeling duped and 100$ less rich. Seriously save the trip, you can make this food at home.

    We ordered every pasta to share for the table, as well as a pizza, bread service, buffalo mozzarella caprese, and the artichoke side. Each dish was uniquely delicious and very authentic. Wine pairings were carefully chosen and complemented the meal. We had a birthday in our party and ordered one of each dessert. All were super yummy, but the Citrus Semifredo was culinary genius. We all agreed it was our favorite. Such a fabulous night to celebrate.

    Very disappointed in both food and service. Got seated 15 min after reservation and made to wait in a crowded door. Food came cold (meatball center frozen). All courses came out at once vs coursed. No apologies. Bill was handed to us and server walked away without eye contact. Will not be going back even though I want to love this local place.

    One of the best Italian restaurants in Cincinnati. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu, I would suggest that you skip lunch! They have a superb wine list; General manager Ashley Cox is an expert in Italian wines and she can assist you in pairing your food with the best adult beverages. The staff is super friendly and efficient and contribute to the lively, comfortable vibe inside. A must go to for foodies. Make sure you make reservations early, especially on Bolognese Tuesdays which has become an event in the cozy Hyde Park area of the suburbs.

    Made a 5:30 reservation. My friend arrived before me. I arrived at 5:35. Perhaps 3 tables had been seated. My friend had been given a seat directly beside the hostess Station - WORST seat in the restaurant and the place was nearly empty. I requested a table IN the restaurant and they obliged. Server came and we ordered a Prosecco and one Campari on the rocks. We sat catching up and time passed - 45 minutes and we had no drinks. We didn't see our waitress on the floor. We flagged someone to inquire and she/he returned to say they were out of it. My friend ordered white wine. Now a young man came and told us he would be our server. OK. Two Bolognese specials, please. Pasta overcooked and flooded with sauce. So unItalian,
