    This was a great non-occasion date night restaurant. Atmosphere was nice (though tables are crammed together and you feel like you're on a date woth the couples on either side of you). Food was very enjoyable (but you wont dream about it). Prices were moderate. I think the price of the fish was a bit much for what it was, but it was good and prob not out of line. We won't hesitate to come back, but we'll prob try some of the other similar restaurants first to see which we like most.

    This is a neighborhood gem! Service is wonderful and the food is fantastic. Bolo night on Tuesdays is a great deal on the best bolognese in town. I'll be thinking about the mushroom risotto and the cauliflower au gratin sides until my next visit.

    Very nice service, smaller portion than usual Italian restaurant. Delicious eggplant parmigiana and minestrone soup. The focaccia bread basket was served cold or room temperature and without any oil on the side or butter (slightly disappointing) but the server was super nice and busy and I didn’t want to bother him. Overall nice very quaint place. Very crowded where people kept bumping on my chair to get by.

    I absolutely love this restaurant. I know I gave it more of a 4/5, but the food is amazing. I really wish that when you made a reservation online or on the phone you could reserve the bar sitting. Right now it only allows you to just make a table reservation. The bar is much more intimate than sitting at the tables. The tables are a bit cramped, your table "neighbors" are almost of top of you and I think it is also hard for the wait staff to move around. But the food is damn good!!

    Best pizza in Cincinnati for me. My friend chose the Tuesday Bolognese special which is a great value meal weekly. Service and meals were great. Only complaint here might be that the tables are quite close together again and the chairs, rather uncomfortable. I'll be back for an outside table because I love the food.

    We dine at Forno fairly regularly because the food is delicious and we like the atmosphere. Last night after an uncharacteristically underwhelming experience during which our pizza and pasta were served room-temperature and our server seemed unbothered, we packed our dishes and headed home to warm them up there. Before we even pulled out of our parking space, the manager, Ashley, was on the phone insisting on making things right. We were so impressed with her care and professionalism. Sometimes one bad meal turns a favorite restaurant into a no-go, but we will have no hesitation returning to Forno promptly.

    Forno Osteria & Bar, Hyde ParkResponded on 6 March 2023Hi there! Thank you for taking the time to leave kind words about our manager Ashley! We apologize your experience missed the mark and we are grateful that Ashley was able to make it up to you. We thank you for being loyal guests at Forno Hyde Park.

    There was no parking within 2 blocks in all directions so we parked illegally at a business across the street. Tables very crowded and close to each other so my husband’s chair got bumped by everyone who passed. That being said, the food was very flavorful and the red house wine really good. We took a chance and tried something new- Tripe Venetian style(?). It was delicious. The Porkchop, bone in, Milanese, was tender and flavorful as was the Tuesday special of pasta Bolognese.

    Definitely do not recommend this as a Saturday night dining experience with friends unless you want to spend 3.5 hours here. Severely understaffed, very slow. Great food but not worth the 30 min wait from reservation time with nowhere in restaurant to wait and another 30 min from when we finished our meal to get the check.

    We went for our 3 year anniversary and it was amazing!! THE FOOD WAS SPECTACULAR - both of us enjoyed our meals. I got the Spaghetti and my bf got the short rib. We both got sides to try - the the risotto and truffle corn. THE CORN WAS AMAZING- the risotto was so good to but i cannot recommended the corn more. (definitely could be shared with the whole table) our waitress was awesome and they gave us our dessert for free as a anniversary gift. Absolutely amazing time with forno and will definitely be going back!!
