At Forno Kitchen and Bar, our food reflects the community we are proud to serve.

Located in the heart of the Short North Arts District, Forno is a unique stone-fired dining experience. Meaning “oven” in Italian (and a number of other romantic languages) you’ll find the right touch of heat when you step into Forno.

Like our debut with the Short North Pint House, it is our mission to create a stylish neighborhood destination for local Columbus residents and visitors alike.

We offer American cuisine which is finished in our stone-fired oven. From shareable plates to sizable entrees, everyone will find something they like. Guests can enjoy a fun and lively show as our chefs’ work from the oven which sits front and center in the dining room. Accompany your meal with an option from our exciting wine selection and hand-crafted cocktails menu.

Our restaurant is located in an historical building that adds an old-world charm to our modern design. At Forno, you will find a bustling ambiance that creates the right mood for any occasion. Stop in for dinner, a night out with friends or anything in between.
