    Certainly the most authentic pizza I've ever had! So much to try, it's hard to pick, it all sounds so good. Guess I'll have to go back to narrow down my favs.

    My sole complaint about the meal was that I ordered a bottle of wine (listed as one of the chef's favorites) and it was strictly mediocre. I think a $65 bottle should leave a better impression. The meal itself was outstanding. We'll be back!

    Didn’t realize I’d eaten there before until we arrived. As soon as I saw the dinning area, I remembered why I hadn’t been back. Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with dinning area, just a little too congested for me. We we’re taken to table that was right in the middle of foot traffic from the wait staff and patrons. I immediately requested a different table and my request was granted. Two seater in the corner. Works for me. We started off with the Goat Cheese & Chestnut Honey Bruschetta. Absolutely delicious. My wife had the Minestrone Soup and I had the Caesar Salad. Both were very good. For our entrees, my wife had the Eggplant Parmesan, and I had the Tagliatelle Bolognese. Her dish had good flavor but was served cold. She couldn’t finish it. My Bolognese was piping hot and delicious. Only thing missing was bread to sop up the gravy. Lol. Overall it was good experience. Food was delicious and the service was adequate. The only negatives were the noise, the cramped space, cold dish, and stinky perfume worn by someone at the adjacent table. Oh, and they charged me $2.00 for ice. Granted it’s only $2.00, but the server should have mentioned an up charge for square ICE!

    Great location and service. Food was good but dining was super loud and hard to have a conversation. Seating was poorly laid out and our table bumped by servers on six occasions. The food itself was great and one of the best in the area. This isn’t a place for a romantic dinner for sure.

    Great service and food. It was a crowded Saturday night. The dining room is small with many tables very close to each other. We could barely hear ourselves so conversation was a struggle. By the time we were finished, there were a number of people waiting. Some were standing in the entryway of the dining room which made us feel like we needed to rush through our dessert.

    Only issue is I had bought a Via Vite gift card timing for $300. I thought it was the 20% free promotion however I don’t think I received that on the card. I tried to use the card three times at Forno in Montgomery. It only worked once and for this reservation I was told it had a balance of $0. Definitely frustrating.

    Our family of 4 chose to dine at Forno while my Father was in town for the holidays. We had dinner there previously and my Dad raved about the pork chop, so a return to the restaurant was in order. It was a busy night and we were seated very close to our reservation time, but that’s where the timeliness ended. Unfortunately, we spent the majority of the 2+ hour meal waiting for service and food/drink. As usual, the food was outstanding, but it took eons to receive our appetizers (arancini & bread) and entrees. We also spent the majority of the night parched. Our water glasses and bottle were empty in the first 15 minutes of being seated, but the server failed to take notice or address our party the many times she passed by our table. Our glasses were also empty when our entrees arrived, yet I had to quickly request water as she walked away. Additionally, my Dad never received his iced tea despite requesting it twice. Similarly, my husband never received the wine he ordered. We flagged down our server to request leftover boxes, which she delivered but then didn’t return with the check. After much waiting and prompting, we received our check. My husband quickly inserted payment in the folder, then…more waiting. There was no sign of our server, so after a quarter hour I took the bill to the bar in search of assistance. Thankfully, the manager very graciously took time to process our bill. I appreciate the restaurant was initially very busy and certainly understood the compromise in service; however, the fact it persisted even when the crowd dissipated was very disappointing. The service was poor, but the food was sublime.

    Forno Osteria & Bar MontgomeryResponded on December 30, 2022Hi Kelly! Thank you so much for dining with us and leaving feedback of your experience. We’re so glad to hear the food was phenomenal, however, we clearly missed the mark with your service. We would like to make this right with you.

    Mark is an amazing server - always above and beyond! The meals are good, but most are tomato-based so you need to like that type of Italian food. Not fettuccini Alfredo or cream sauce dishes. Portions are just the right size for pasta. Salads are good. It is really noisy - hard to hear no matter where you sit.

    Forno Osteria & Bar MontgomeryResponded on December 28, 2022Hi Amy! Thanks for dining with us at Forno Osteria & Bar Montgomery. So glad Mark always treat you well. Happy to make accommodations next time you’re in if you want to try something a little different. Elijah, our General Manager, will be happy to accommodate seating requests as well, however for a quieter evening, you may need to make an early or late reservation, being a smaller restaurant so popular with our local neighborhood.

    Another visit to Forna and the food did not disappoint. We had family visiting over the holidays and Forna was our choice as one can order anything from pizza to veal to fish ... or choose from a nice array of pasta dishes. Service was very slow this evening and after sitting for about 30 minutes my wife had to go to the hostess stand and inquire if we were going to get waited on? Promptly thereafter a waitress came to our table, and all was fine. We were offered free deserts albeit none in our party took up the offer. When we received our bill the veal meatball appetizer we all shared was comped. A nice way to say sorry about the initial service issue. We will be back!

    We waited over 30 minutes to get water. The tables were so close together the waitress’s backside was in my food after waiting over an hour for appetizers. We had a horrible experience.
