Forno Rosso Pizzeria - Dunning
We arrived about 5 minutes prior to our reservation time. The place was packed, no hostess, no greeting from anyone, everyone walking in looked lost just waiting by the door. The servers were walking around seemingly flustered and overwhelmed. I basically approached one of the servers and asked how do we get seated? She told us that we’ll be seated shortly since we had a reservation. About 15 minutes later we were seated, our server was attentive, food was great. I hope that they get a host soon, feeling ignored when you walk in is not good for business.
Greatly enjoy this unassuming spot on Harlem. The woodfired pizza is delicious and a pretty good value for two people to split with appetizer and-or dessert. The paninis with rosemary parmesan fries are also a great bargain. We have ordered the tiramisu at each visit with no regrets! Looking forward to visiting in thr spring to sit on the nicely lit patio.
Valentina was a fabulous server and the food was delicious. We appreciated the nice birthday dessert as well!
Lots of different pizzas to choose from in various different flavor profiles. Nice drink list with wine and beer and a full bar. Plenty of appetizers to choose from hot and cold. And don’t forget about dessert the Bomba is the bomb!
Best brick oven pizza around
Really the pizza here is outstanding, so come hungry. My favorite is the red diavolo, with spicy salami and hot oil. The salads are good as well. The service is a bit brusque, and an easy smile would go a long way. They are very busy in general so make a res if you can.
We got 3 different pizzas and they were all great! Drinks were great as well
Delicious! Service wonderful. Can't wait to come again.
Wonderful love coming to Forno Rosso can get enough of the pizza absolutely delicious
Excellent pizza , a bit expensive, good service, worth the drive
Love Forno Rosso’s pizza — superb dough, fresh toppings, great choices. Also, try one of the great salads — big enough for sharing. Highly recommend!
Amazing food but even better service!!!!!
Excellent food. Music too loud to have a conversation.
Not sure if I was given credit for my open table reservation.
Food was phenomenal service was so so.
I will definitely be back. We enjoyed our time tremendously
Loved the pizzas and cannoli. Service is awesome.
Food was great, waitress was so kibd
Great Neapolitan style pizza! Their Arancini is delish as well.
Food here is phenomenal! Great variety of pizza options. Amazing salads that feed 3-4 people. Desserts to die for. Especially the cannolis.
This is the best pizza in Chicago
Returning to a favorite place. Glad to find out that it’s still great. Can’t get enough of the wonderful crust in the pizza. Drinks are top notch, too.
Surprisingly great little gem in the middle of a strip mall.
Very good food and service. Gluten Free Crust was great, make sure to reserve that ahead of time if you want it!
Forno Rosa never disappoints on food or service. Great Napoleon style pizza.
Always greeted with a smile. Either the owner or manager makes sure he comes to the tables to see if everything is ok. Salads, pizzas and the gnocchi are wonderful. Small but decent wine and beer list. The rose is my favorite. Rounding out the dinner, the cappuccinos and deserts are great too. Highly recommend. Side note, if you do not eat pork products, they do have some other pizza options. My favorite is the margharita pizza and the delicious gnocchi.
Was there at 5:30 on a Friday night for dinner was not that busy and Don't think they were staffed properly verrrry slow service. ordered 2 Margarita pizzas they out too much cheese. It was kind of heavy with all that chese I've been there before and I really loved it. I will prob try it one more time but they need to speed up tge service.
Love this place! Truly the best pizza in Chicago for Vera napoletana style pizza. Service is always great, the food is fantastic and you can have a conversation.
I LOVE their pizza! This is definitely my favorite place to eat pizza.
Very busy, our server did not pay much attention to us. Felt rushed. Food was good.
Great service, food and reasonable prices!
Great place, great food, and great service!!!
Really a hidden gem, great pizza, salads and a decent and manageable wine list. The restaurant had a feeling of being a half beat off from its usual precision. Food was great.
Forno Rosso is a gem. The food is authentic, original and outstanding. The staff is attentive without being over bearing and very very friendly. My wife and I frequent Forno Rosso so we took out of town family there and they just loved it. So much so we went twice.
The place was fantastic. Very Accommodating. The service was great. Denny our server went above and beyond to make sure everything was how we wanted it. We will definitely be returning !!!!
The pies are great, but if you come at a busy time, they may not be cooked to perfection, or else may be allowed to cool a bit, and the cheese congeals. Service is attentive and lots of beer choices to go along with lots of pizza choices.
Excellent pizza and other food in a friendly casual atmosphere. Good reasonably priced wine and beer selections (including from Italy, although those are little pricey.)
We went to Forno Rosso Saturday night for the first time. We will be back. it is a certified Neapolitan pizzeria, and few other places are. We had the simple Margherita pizza and it was perfect. The pear, walnut and Gorgonzola salad was amazing. The carbonara pizza was also terrific though we expected white sauce, not red. The manager sensed we were first timers and chatted with us at our table.And he sent to our table complimentary cannolis
Very tasty pizza! Great service! Highly recommend!
Excellent food and wine. Went with a group of friends. We ordered wine and each had different pizzas. Everything was excellent, service and all. We will definitely they be back!
Overall a great place. Outstanding pizza.
