Fornetto Mei Restaurant

A delightful pan-Italian restaurant in the heart of Chicago's Gold Coast, Fornetto Mei offers a relaxed, dining experience and world-inspired cuisine. Serving delectable dishes prepared in a natural style, this creative pan-Italian restaurant pays distinct homage to Neo-Milanese cuisine, the fusion of the art and spices of the Orient, and the influence of Marco Polo to Italian cooking. With the cuisines kept separate, this chic dining spot delivers a creative menu from fresh thin-crust pizzas to homemade pot stickers to a delightful wine list.

The name Fornetto Mei comes from the Italian word il fornetto, meaning little oven for our wood-burning ovens that produce delicious Milanese-style thin crust pizzas, combined with the renowned Berkshire pork potstickers created by owner Su-Mei Tung. Enjoy the cozy, intimate dining room or relax in the warm, sexy ambience of the atrium pizza bar. We offer an impressive wine list both by the glass & by the bottle for wine connoisseurs with selections from around the world.
