Il Forno in Ballston Has Closed

As it turns out, Il Forno was ill fated.

The upscale Italian restaurant at 900 N. Glebe Road in Ballston closed last week after about three and a half years in business.

Paper now covers the restaurant’s windows, which is usually an indication that construction is taking place inside and another business is on the way. However, no construction permit applications have been filed, based on a check of the county’s permit system Tuesday afternoon.

In April, ARLnow.com reported that Il Forno was listed for sale on a business broker website. The listing noted that the restaurant was “investor owned” but in need of an “operator-owner.”

Il Forno was located next to the recently-opened Applebee’s.
