Assistant Manager (Current Employee) – Arlington, VA – April 16, 2016
This is a great environment to work in if you are looking for a job where you are surrounded by successful people in the restaurant industry. The staff is friendly and knowledgable when it comes to Italian cuisine. I learned a lot working at Il Forno; from managerial duties to the different Italian dishes. The hardest part of the job is working the long hours but if you are motivated by the passion of food, hours will fly by before you know it.

I will go pick load the truck to deliver to devens where we serve the army breakfast lunch and dinner we have a break in between of two hours we wild have to go back to the restaurant to pick the food for each shift
Nice atmosphere and co-workers. Nice to meet new clients. The most enjoyable part of the job is that all co-workers are like a big family. Learned to make inventories, organized goods. Learned to organized events, very satisfactory to get good feedback on clients.
Enjoyed the customers and employees for the most part.
Waitress/Bartender (Former Employee) – Ashland, MA – February 10, 2014
The owner was a very brash foreigner from the middle east, who disliked American women in particular, and would work us to the extreme, denying time off for family, classes, sick time etc.
The food was to be authentic Italian - but much of it was not true Italian. The hours were long, and if lucky we would get a 20 minute lunch break even while working double shifts.Prices were too high for this particular area considering the type of food that was prepared there.
The business eventually closed due to those and other reasons, as well as two of his other locations.
very positive work enviroment, my co-workers make the job enjoyable and fun. The manager is great and is always willing to help with anything. They are flexible to the employee scheduling needs. It's a very nice place to work.
Server (Former Employee) – Decatur, IL – June 25, 2013
Working at IL Forno allowed me to utilize my ability to work well with others. Team work ensured all customers were provided with first class service. The best part of my job was to see a customer come back for another visit, because they were happy with the service provided during their first visit.
Server/Hostess (Former Employee) – Secaucus, NJ – December 13, 2012
A typical day at work included cleaning up the mess that the waitress from the night before left, setting up for the afternoon rush of business men and women coming in for lunch as well as the ton of deliveries. All of this with one waitress and one driver. Good pay, but dealing with some of the workers and owner was too much.
