Forno Rosso Pizzeria Napoletana, located in the West Loop, is now open daily at 11 a.m. Forno Rosso (meaning "red oven" in Italian) offers traditional Neapolitan-style thin crust pizzas served fresh from a classic, wood-burning Gianni Acunto oven imported from Italy in a contemporary, urban atmosphere. This is the second Forno Rosso location to open in Chicago with a previous location on Harlem Avenue in Dunning.
The Randolph Street location was just recently VPN (Verace Pizza
Napoletana) certified, which means Forno Rosso met strict requirements
demonstrating they respect the tradition of the art of Neapolitan pizza
making. The VPN is the American Delegation of the Association Vera Pizza
Napoletana, an international non-profit organization founded in the mid
1980's by a group of Neapolitan Pizzaiolis (pizza makers) seeking to
cultivate the culinary art of making Neapolitan pizza.
