Food here is phenomenal! Great variety of pizza options. Amazing salads that feed 3-4 people. Desserts to die for. Especially the cannolis.

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.

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.

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 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

The pizza is excellent. Both grilled and fried calamari is tender and very tasty. Staff is friendly, oxana (not sure on spelling) is a excellent server and makes a great strawberry basil martini. Worth our 30 minute drive.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE! I've been to their Randolph location a few times and was excited to see they had this location, as well. I met a friend from the northern suburbs here and it was super convenient... plus, they have a free parking lot! The food is truly delicious AND they also have the BEST gluten free pizza crust that I've ever tasted. Make sure to call ahead (ideally 24 hours) to make sure that have a gf crust available. You will not be disappointed!! Oh, and we were celebrating my friend's birthday and they surprised us with a free dessert!

By far, my favorite restaurant of all time. Every time I go, I end up talking for at least 10 minutes after I'm finished about how amazing it was! I swear, it gets better every time I go and I'm not sure how you can just get infinitely better, but they do. The tiramisu, don't even get me started. I seriously could talk forever about it, but the pizza is insane.

Best Neapolitan-style pizza in the Chicago area! This is the real deal for perfectly chewy crust and delicious toppings (try the tartufo pizza if you like truffle!). Service is also very friendly.

A large neighborhood place with a noisy, upscale bar vibe. Pizza was good, though, as was the service. Difficult to get to for us, because of the inevitable traffic on Harlem Avenue. Lots of neighborhood people there with kids, too. If you are a devotee of Neapolitan pizza, you will want to give it a try. I would have appreciated more pizzas without meat, too.
