Went here with my fiancée tonight and we both loved it. The food was delicious. I got the Chicken Parmesan, which was a huge portion and all the ingredients tasted very fresh. My fiancée got the Calamari Fra Diavolo, which was even better. We could tell by the flavors and textures of everything that the ingredients really were fresh. The service was very kind as well. The only minor problem was that the food took a little while to come out, but they seemed to realize that and sent us a salad while we waited, on the house! Certainly kept us in a good mood while we waited.

We ducked into LaFourno while visiting Philly from Louisville Kentucky. My son wanted pizza, so this looks like a good option. Boy, were we right!


The pizza my son ordered was crispy on the bottom, wood-fired, and perfect! I had to steal a piece right away!


I ordered a dish and that was chicken stuffed with prosciutto and mozzarella covered with a marsala wine sauce. It came with a side of homemade pasta with olio. Delish! My husband ordered a ravioli type pasta stuffed with veal in a cream sauce! Killer!


Tiramisu and a lovely pastry stuffed with strawberries and walnuts ended our feast.


Al, the owner, was so friendly! He took awesome care of us as did all the staff. We will come back to Philly just to eat here again!

We reserved a private room for dinner after my daughter's college graduation for approximately 30 guests. The service, the food, the personal attention to detail was unsurpassed. It was a perfect end to a very memorable day. Thank you Al and Francis for taking care of every detail.

We felt adventurous on our 13th anniversary and stumbled upon LaFourno Ristorante Trattoria on the internet. Best decision ever.

We were greeted like we were the only customers and our server Luis was attentive and so pleasant. We could tell that he was proud to be there and serve the amazing food we ordered. Everything was great.

The atmosphere was relaxed but upscale. Prices very fair for the quality of food. So many wonderful food options that it was hard to choose.

Try the Italian Margarita and don't leave before you try the LaFourno baked pastry dessert. Discover it for yourself, you won't be disappointed. It's going to be our new "place".

Delighted with my experience. They immediately presented me with lovely, crusty bread and a dish of olive oil and another of Parmesan - so much better than greasy "garlic bread"! Francis, the host, waited on me, asked intelligent questions about my preferences, and made sure the food was prepared appropriately. He was relaxed, friendly and patient. Arugula salad was fresh and not overdressed. Could taste the good olive oil in my entree. Pasta was al dente - thank goodness! Tilapia gently cooked. Tiramisu was light and lovely. LOVED the coffee. (Restaurant coffee almost always spoils the meal, but not at La Fourno.) It was a Groupon that brought me there, but got absolutely no vibe of being down-classed thereby. Am glad to have "discovered" La Fourno!
