    We made a reservation at Il Forno based on the fact that it was an Italian restaurant. We arrived at noon for our reservation and they were only serving a brunch menu with very limited options, none of which were Italian. I ordered eggs which were very over cooked, wheat toast, which was nasty Texas toast and there were no healthy side options. It was only potatoes. We were in town for graduation so I don’t know if this restaurant is new to Auburn and just getting started, so I’d like to think it will improve, but based on our experience we will not be returning.

    Food was great and live music was very nice- trumpet playing was low key and chill. Food was fresh, and elevated, good for all ages. It is a small dining room, we had a large party and felt like we took over the entire restaurant but the staff was great and other diners not irritated! 😂

    Our sever, Savannah, was excellent! Food was delicious. The best calamari I’ve ever eaten. Do recommend reservations since their venue is pretty small. Will be back!
