New Italian Restaurant Coming to Ballston

 

A new Italian restaurant is coming to Ballston early next year.

Il Forno Restaurant is coming to the ground floor of the Virginia Tech Research Center building at 900 N. Glebe Road, near the Greene Turtle. The restaurant will have 124 seats and a pizza oven that’s being imported from Italy, according to owner Charles Nejat, a sales manager at the nearby Arlington Mercedes-Benz dealership.

Translated from Italian, “Il Forno” means “The Oven.”

Nejat said he’s hoping to open the restaurant as early as January 1.
