The Al forno Difference:
Al forno [al ˈforno] is food that has been baked in an oven.
An al forno dish is a labor of love. While the ingredients are simple, al forno dishes take a long time to prepare. From creating the perfect dough that can withstand high heat without being burned, to baking the dish for the perfect amount of time, al forno style cooking is one that you can taste immediately.
The origin of pasta al forno comes from the method of cooking in Northern Italy. In order to cook anything, Northern Italians had to use a wood fire oven. It required a certain level of finesse and patience, and over time, it became a popular method of cooking. At Geena’s, we take the wood-fire tradition and add a modern twist. Our al forno oven is kept at 900 degrees and does not have wood. Our goal is to deliver the freshest and best pizza you’ll ever have at every visit. Each dish is cooked to order and is not just sitting around, waiting to be re-heated.
