- Food & Wine Magazine has named San Antonio’s Il Forno as one of the best pizzerias in Texas.
The five-year-old eatery was featured in Food & Wine Magazine's new roundup of the best pizza restaurants in every state, landing one of just five slots reserved for Texas. Il Forno earned a mention for its seasonal take on Naples-style pizza and use of herbs and veggies grown in its own backyard garden.
Helmed by chef Jason Garcia, Il Forno — or “oven” in Italian — serves up decadent pies with scratch-made mozzarella, fresh veggies and house-cured meats. There’s also a robust “Not Pizza” section of the South SA eatery’s menu, boasting salads, hummus, meatballs, antipasto and a sinful chocolate mousse.
So many restaurants, so little time. Find out the latest San Antonio dining news with our Flavor Friday Newsletter.
