If you're craving a little taste of Italy but you find yourself firmly rooted in Nashville, not to worry. Il Forno is a pizzeria on wheels, brought to you by Chef Egi Franciosa who grew up near Naples and spent years perfecting his pizza technique. Together with his wife Jannah who shares in his passion of authentic Italian cuisine, Chef Egi's bringing Italy's famous street food to the streets of Nashville.
The heart and soul of Il Forno's authentic Neapolitan pizza boils down to three things: Caputo 00 flour imported from Italy, marinara made from Tuscan tomatoes and Fior de Latte mozzarella. Seems simple, but combined with a bevy of fresh ingredients and recipes exclusive to il Forno, it's anything but. From the classic margherita to the complex notes of garlic, broccolini and fennel sausage found on their Mondragone pizza, you're being treated to a world of flavor in two minutes or less, thanks to il Forno's authentic wood burning oven that reaches a staggering 900 degrees. Talk about being put through the fire. So fire up your pizza appetite and find il Forno, transporting your tastebuds to Italy in every single bite.
