Kocina Il Forno - Latin Urban Kitchen
Great food and service! The waiter was excellent and the whole staff was helpful. I came with my mom who is wheelchair bound and they accommodated us superbly. When we arrived, the music was a bit loud and they lowered the volume a little at our request. The food is authentic Latin American food. You can enjoy yuca, ceviche and maduros.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in town. We invited some friends and they loved everything they taste.
Great cucumber martini...ordered my ribeye medium, but it was pink and bloody throughout, very chewy....didn't see much value in forking over $140 for dinner for 2.....was not too impressed.
Always a great time.
Thank you for bringing quality food and service to the RHV.
Everything we’ve ever ordered has been wonderful. My all time favorite is the brisket tacos and my husband’s is the choriqueso pizza.
Great service Great Food, Great Management! Over all it was a great experience!
The food is yummy and the service was great. I had the “Ropa Vieja” and I lived it. I had sangria and it was just ok.
Excellent food but I had to wait more than one hour to get my food, the place wasn't full but I noticed that the kitchen was serving too slow, our waitress Tony, overwhelmed, forgot even the drinks, don't like to see this service pattern because the food is great however the service has been down for months, probably because the focus is on the new Prime restaurant.
Wonderful food, gracious service.
The atmosphere is amazing and the waiters do an amazing job! The waiters not only can describe every menu item to the T but they have some great recommendations! This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants.
Food was excellent. Disappointed that they don't have cocktails here only beer and wine although they do make a "wine cocktail" which is good but pricey at $11. Not on the menu but for $25 you can get a platter of all the apps which are all excellent so that and share a main course is enough for two if you want to try a lot without breaking the bank.
Food was good. Good service.
Five stars are not enough! I love this restaurant, my favorite in Mcallen and probably in general. The food is amazing, creative and delicious. The service is good too. But the deserts...WOW! Every time I go I try the special for that day and it has not disappointed. A jewel in McAllen for sure!
Great food and service, loved the menu and the management
Place was nice. Everything i tried was great. Can't wait to go back and try other dishes.
The food was fantastic! Great value. Compliments to the chef and staff!
Rica comida una buena atmósfera y el servicio muy atentos, volvería a ir sin duda
Only thing I didn’t like was our waitress would hardly come to check up on us. We had to wait awhile for refills on our beverages.
Outstanding service and trye authentic Peruvian food.
Food was a nice change of pace from the typical in the area. Flavors were good and food choices were really varied.
Special taste in McAllen
Food was delicious and tasty. Would highly recommend.
Muy deliciosa la comida, el trato muy amable, pero en ninguna parte del sitio web del restaurante se visualizo el Menú del día de San valentin, mi familia y yo teníamos pensado degustar platillos de la carta, aún así fue una muy grata experiencia --- Very delicious food, very friendly treatment, but nowhere on the website of the restaurant was the Valentine's Day Menu, my family and I had thought of tasting dishes of the menu, it was still a very pleasant experience
Excellent food and service. We were there on Valentines Day (extremely busy in the RGV) and the night went extremely smooth despite the large crowds. We will dine here again to try their regular menu. BTW, the black lobster taco was the bomb.
On a regular day, this is a great place to dine, however, I was so disappointed on the Valentine's Day Menu and the value was totally NOT worth it. This place is mostly known for its Peruvian and Latin cuisine and those options were not available on the Valentines Day Menu. The portions for dinner were small and frankly the dessert portion was laughable! The only choices for appetizers were those of seafood, therefore not much of a choice for those who do not like the options given.
Great food, it was special dinner due Valentine's day, but in the description in open table was not that note.
Love the new style had an amazing dinner also like that the new manager came and spoke with us and asked how everything was
The food arrived cold and under seasoned. While our waiter was excellent and very attentive the food was disappointing.
Had a nice dinner. Food is delicious! Always love coming here and introducing friends and family to this place.
Very nice atmosphere and delicious food. Friendly service. Good variety of choices, foods from South America.
Waitress was horrific.
She was pushy; not attentive...we saw our food come out and she brought it 10 min later...so, it sat and got cold for 10 minutes while she chatted with the host. Lastly...she never refilled our water; bad service reflected in her minimal tip.
Host is always kind an warm.
Delicious food and great service!
Great meal! Definitely would recommend! Fantastic appetizer, drink and main meals!
I love this place! As many times as I go there it is the number of times I’m blown away by the food and service. A great variety on the menu as well, for all tastes. I will keep going back.
Really great food, tostones rellenos were delicious, and the cheesecake was just amazing. Service was wonderful, staff is very friendly, courteous and professional. Definitely recommend it
Our new favorite spot! It’s got great ceviche, great entrees and the greatest staff in the Valley!!!
Great place, food and selection. Overall had a great time there and loved the food. There were times where it felt more like a sports bar than a actual restaurant. With all the TVs and music I felt it lost some of the ambiance. Didn’t bother me at all, but it did for the wife as she was expecting something more romantic. Still a great place over all. Highly recommend.
Very good experience, like always
Food is amazingly full of flavor and delicious. Service was great too.
Not your typical McAllen restaurant. Lots of variety and items not found anywhere else in the region. Something for everyone and a good selection of wine and beer. Great casual dining for any day of the week. Have been there several times and always have a chance to try something different. Looking forward to a return visit.
