What do you get when you pair one of San Antonio's most exceptional chefs with America's favorite food? You get a restaurant like Il Forno, that serves up the most incredible Neapolitan wood-fired pizzas, made with the freshest ingredients that are either locally-sourced, such as beautiful figs from a nearby farm, or house-made, such as the ricotta and mozzarella cheese. However, first it must be mentioned that the oven used to make all of the crispy, bubbly pizzas was made by hand, by chef and owner Michael Sohocki himself, who has a reputation for doing everything with his own two hands. The space is casual, and family-friendly, and uses a lot of re-purposed materials. While that is appreciated, this is the kind of pizza you would eat wherever you could find it, whether it be at a roadside truck stand or the planet Mars. Just one bite of the perfectly crispy yet chewy crust topped with their delectable hand-made ingredients and you'll be hooked. All of their meats are made in-house as well, including pepperoni, coppa, Italian sausage, prosciutto and sopressata. You can also add an egg to any pizza to give it that extra richness. Denizens of the neighborhood have been flocking to this new pizza joint, so make sure not to miss out!
