Il Forno, who some believe has the best pizza in Frederick is expanding it’s space in the Westridge Shopping Center on the Golden Mile. I’ve always enjoyed the pizza from the wood burning oven there but truthfully don’t get out to the Golden Mile all that often anymore. Now that the dining room will be expanded and more comfortable, I may have to change that. From the Gazette:
Something good is getting even better!
Everything and everyone at Il Forno Pizzeria on West Patrick Street is in a state of flux while they expand their popular restaurant.
The pizzeria was started, about 19 years ago, by the father of one of the present owners. Today, John Perrin and two of his college fraternity brothers, Dave and Mike, are the men in charge.
These friendly guys are running a well-oiled business. And they are adding more space, as they have recently incorporated the old theater entrance in the Westridge Shopping Center into the current restaurant, allowing for a larger and more pleasant dining area.
There will soon be eight to ten flat-screen televisions, Sunday sports, and late night food and drink. John said there are only a few places on the Golden Mile that offer food and drink after 10 p.m. Il Forno’s intends to provide that service.
A large, recently expanded patio out front is surrounded by ivory wrought iron and seats about 70 people.
