Variety is the spice of life at Fornetto Mei, an Italian delight with flavors imported from Northern Italy. Fornetto Mei's unique culinary fusion of authentic Italian plates will awaken your appetite in a new way. Fornetto Mei features Italian specialties from our culinary team. Serving delectable dishes prepared in a natural style, this creative Italian restaurant pays distinct homage to Neo-Milanese cuisine and the influence of Marco Polo to Italian cooking.
At Fornetto Mei, you can also enjoy individual, 12-inch thin-crust pizzas from a wood-burning oven from the pizza bar. Each hand-tossed pizza is smothered with gourmet sauces and topped with the freshest ingredients. The popular Italian sausage, red grapes and Laurel Chenel goat cheese pizza never fails, and our homemade spicy chili oil gives a fresh spin to the classic margherita pizza. Each one makes for a delicious departure from Chicago's traditional deep dish pies.
