What’s better than delicious and fresh Italian food? Chicago is spoiled when it comes to Italian food, which means there are always tasty new spots to check out. Some of our favorite authentic Italian cuisine is found at Forno Rosso Pizzeria Napoletana.

The Reviews Are In 

Everybody across the Chicago area raves about the quality cuisine at this local establishment. On TripAdvisor, reviewer “Mahendra108” exclaims: “The best pizza I’ve ever tried!” Another reviewer on TripAdvisor, “Lys S.” raves about the food, and also states: “Hands down the best cannoli I have ever had in my life (and I’ve been to Italy).”

Heading over to Yelp, the reviews are similarly glowing. Leigh A. from Des Plaines expresses her fervent views about the restaurant: “This place will convert you.” She describes her experience bringing her grandparents to the restaurant, who are usually “picky” – yet at Forno Rosso “they actually liked the pizza too.”

The Pizza

Both red and white varieties of pizza are on offer here, so if you can’t have tomato sauce, you won’t be missing out. The varieties of pizza are original and make use of local ingredients. Try out the white “Ortolana” with spinach, mushrooms, bell pepper, and incredibly fresh cheeses. Or you can go for the “Capricciosa” with red sauce, artichokes, kalamata olives, and more.


This restaurant is open from 11:00 a.m. until 10:00 p.m., so you can go for an early lunch or even a late dinner. It’s a good idea to make reservations since this is a very popular spot among Chicagoans in the know.
