Working with Marra Forni was a pleasure….especially Anthony. Between manufacturing to our specifications and hosting us for a visit to the site and test kitchen, the staff was very gracious and helpful. Marra Forni does a great job going above and beyond to answer any and all questions! Highly recommended to anyone in search of a wood-fired pizza oven.
An excellent equiptment dealer specializing in wood fire pizza ovens. We had an old acunto oven that was in bad condition so we called Marra Forni right away. He replaced the entire deck of the oven in one day. He left the place spotless and the oven looked brand new. We would recommend Marra to anyone who needs to replace or repair a Neapolitan pizza oven. Keep up the good work guys! From the Fiamma team
I really cannot say enough about Marra Forni and the entire team there. I just purchased my second mobile wood fired oven from them and everything about it is incredible. Francesco, Enzo, Jeff, Anthony, and Mika are some of the best people I have ever worked with. I have to be honest, I think they have been in touch with me more since I purchased the oven then before when I was considering buying one. That alone tells me how much they care. They really put the customers first and that means the world to me. I cannot wait until I purchase another one!!!!!!!
We recently purchased a rotating pizza oven, a mixer, a slicer and other equipment for our new restaurant. They were delightful to work with. The oven is extremely simple to operate and works to perfection. Support has been quick and efficient every time needed.
Jeff and his team at Marra Forni have been great to work with since day one. We started our project in Beverly Hills 18 months ago and have thoroughly enjoyed working with Marra Forni throughout the project. While our project has hit some speed bumps and been delayed the team at Marra Forni has done absolutely everything they could to help us along the way.
Absolutely the best oven! The engineers are brilliant. They are willing to do whatever they can to please the way you want your oven built. We had an absolute wonderful experience! This is a top notch factory ran by intelligent engineers. The work is amazing! We will be doing more business in the future. Grazie!
I have bought a few ovens from Marra Forni a few years ago. I wouldn’t suggest any other oven in the world, nothing compares to the performance and the durability of this oven. I have bought both just wood and gas/wood combination. Loved both, but the combination is my favorite. Has saved me a lot of money on wood and my pizzas are the best in town. This oven really makes a difference and gives that touch of Italian authenticity I was looking for. The staff goes out of their way to help with anything you could ever need even after years from the purchase. I could not be happier! 🙂 Grazie a tutti!
Awesome Product !!! Best Pizza Oven, cook in less than 2 minutes and the product is awesome, Highly Recommended !!
From the minute the oven arrived we fell in love! Working with Marra Forni has been an excellent experience from sales to set up. The oven is amazing and beautiful. We just won “Best Artisan Pizza” in Fort Lauderdale and could have not done it without the support of the Marra Forni Team! The owner Francesco is there for you personally with any questions you may have. We cannot wait to buy our 2nd oven.
I’ve been working with Marra Forni oven for more than a year now in my neapolitan style pizzeria. Everything has been great with the oven. We love the reability and the design, its a beauty. I came back again this month to expand my concept and take a look for a second oven and wanted to see one of their other style, the rotator. I spent the day with the crew at the facilities. The owner Francesco and Enzo were there and gave me really good advises in the operation and business development. They were incredible hosts and will answer all the questions you may have. Francesco make sure I got to see every detail at MarraForni. The team make you feel at home. Stavri explained me all the engineering technology inside the oven, burner, controls, details, even diagrams on the computer. He even made the dough coached by Anthony, who was outside the country, but came back the day that I went to make the great pizzas that he does. Stavri, the dough was outstanding btw. We tested the oven, make delicious pizzas, had fun. Anthony helped me with everything related
pizza making, great pizzaiolo. Carlos was very responsive too, and walked me through the facilities. He and Stavri helped me by phone a year ago during the oven setup in Puerto Rico. Marra Forni’s ovens are simply the best with a great crew that will assist you when you need it. The rotator will be great on my second location. I just wanted to sincerely thanks to Mika, Anthony, Carlos, Stavri, Jeff, Enzo and Francesco, it is a pleasure to visit and do business with you.
I have known the team at Marra Forni for over 10 years and have exclusively used Marra Forni ovens in all of my Restaurants.
My newest concept Persona Wood Fired Pizzeria is now a Nation wide Franchise brand and it is expanding rapidly. Marra Forni ovens are the best in the industry, the innovative forward thinking of their team ensures that as we grow Persona we know our franchisees are getting the best product available.
Francesco, Enzo and Emilianno Marra lazer focused on high quality products and the support team behind the scenes are the best in the business. Anthony Pilla, Jeff Calwell and the entire staff are great to work with and are always ready to help with any issue that arises.
From logistics to normal support Marra Forni’s team gets 5 stars for sure. I was scheduled to be on the Fox and Friends Morning show live from New York and I needed an oven in Times Square with little notice, Marra Forni jumped in and delivered the oven and Anthony and Jeff worked with me to make the live TV event a huge success.
If you are a restaurant professional or a home owner looking at their new residential oven line Marra Forni is the best oven, mixer and refrigeration company in the industry.
I recommend them with no reservations at all.
Truly a company worthy of a five star rating. I had the pleasure of meeting the Marra Forni team at the Pizza Expo in 2015. At the time I wasn’t even looking for a new oven. They were so welcoming and easy going that I decided to stick around their booth for a bit and check out their ovens. The thing that stuck out in our first meeting is they treated me like a family member even though I wasn’t even in the market to buy an oven within the next year.
A few months later I hooked up with these guys at the NRA show in Chicago and cooked a bunch of my pizzas in their ovens. I was blown away by the consistency and ease of use. I love that they have the product engineer Stavri come to events so you can pick his brains. Super smart guy!
In January of this year my wife and I decided to take a trip to their warehouse and test kitchen in Maryland. It was very assuring seeing the ovens being made in America.
I ended up buying a 140 oven and having them put it on a trailer for me. After cooking a couple thousand pizzas in my oven I can say that this is for sure the best oven I have ever used. It is so easy to train a new staff member on. Very user friendly. Most importantly my pizzas come out better in this oven than any other oven we own. In the two weeks after I received the oven Anthony and Jeff personally reached out to me to make sure I was satisfied. Talk about people who care!!!
Going forward I will only be buying Marra Forni ovens. They are easy to work with, diligent, knowledgeable and the quality of their products is second to none.
Marra Forni is a very professional and experienced company. I opened my first restaurant almost 2 years ago and ordered my first Neapolitan style pizza oven. It was perfect, everything from the design to the delivery. I am opening my second restaurant this June and ordered the oven from Marra Forni again, and received even better service. I worked with Anthony and he was very responsive and helpful throughout the entire process. I will always recommend Marra Forni to anyone looking for a professional oven. Thank you Marra Forni!
We were referred to Marra Forni by our Master Chef. After testing multiple ovens and then trying Marra Forni’s product there was no comparison. Not only was their product superior in every way, but their service was phenomenal. Francesco and his team were beyond helpful in customizing the perfect oven for us based on our requirements. The oven was delivered on time and within a few days of arrival, they sent one of their lead engineers to our restaurant in Toronto Canada to fine tune it, and ensure that it worked perfectly. In just a few short months we have built a wonderful relationship with Marra Forni and we look forward to continuing to build upon it for years to come. We highly recommend them to anyone in the market for a top quality oven.
Wow Wow Wow!!! 600 Pizzas in less than 3 hours and didn’t miss a beat!! Anthony is the man! Looking forward to the next opening with this oven. If you want consistency, Marra Forni is it. Thanks for adding us to the family. From the gang here at PizzaFire!!
The Marra Forni team has been fantastic and incredibly responsive in the design and construction of our ovens. Looking forward to using these beautiful ovens when they arrive.
We have looked all over for the “perfect”‘oven! Looked at the companies in the west coast and met with thier crew. At that time I didn’t know much about ovens but the customer service is what got my business. Now that am an oven “pro” per say, not only am I happy with my decision for the un discontinued service but am also SUPER happy with the quality.
We did have an issue with a part in one of the two ovens we got, however a replacement part was overnighted to us right away.
Thanks for your continuous support and great product!
I cant’t say enough great things about this company there ovens, customer service and support.
After a long look and countless hours of research and conversations with other companies and chefs about all the wood fired Neapolitan ovens in the market, and all the past experiences i’ve had with other “brick ovens”. I knew i found the right one for Pastoral. Marra Forni builds beautiful ovens that last the test of time, 900 degrees 7 days a week.
As the Sponsorship Director of the Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival, I have the pleasure of working with Francesco Marra, the Founder, President & CEO of Marra Forni to produce our Italian Feast as part of our four-day annual Festival in October. As part of the Italian Feast, Marra Forni provides all the pizza ovens for our celebrity chefs and pizza makers at the event. The team at Marra Forni works incredibly hard to make our event come alive and provides the infrastructure to prepare some of the best pizzas, by the best chefs to an audience of 2500 people, which kicked-off the 2015 NYCWFF! The Festival benefits the Food Bank For NYC and No Kid Hungry, and with Marra Forni’s support, donation, passion and collaboration, we are able to bring a million+ dollars (in 2015) back to our charity partners and help in the fight to end hunger in NYC! We are proud to work with and have a fabulous relationship with the Marra Forni team! Highly recommend Marra Forni for any event, restaurant or home/venue!
It took me over a year of research to finally purchase my oven. Of all companies I dealt with Marra Forni made you feel like family. They get straight to the facts without any cheesy sales pitch. Francesco the owner personally helps you with any questions. Good luck finding that with any other company. Anthony who took care of my sale was on top of his game. He had all of his facts in line and didn’t pressure me like most salesmen do. I’m looking forward to my next purchase with Marra !
We created the country’s only true Neapolitan pizza event for the Food Network & Cooking Channel NYC Wine and Food Festival and it would not have been possible without the generosity and ingenuity of Marra Forni and their talented team. Producing this event on the rooftop of a NYC pier for 3,000 guests, featuring 30 chefs and star talent is no easy feat. But try to do it without the finest handcrafted wood burning ovens, capable of maintaining 900 degree temperatures in 50 degree weather with blowing wind…forget about it. Marra Forni ovens have been the official oven of this event for three years running and our chefs have come to expect these beauties at their cooking positions upon their arrival. We simply could not be successful without Marra Forni ovens. Team CREaM is proud to be associated with Marra Forni and we look forward to including them in any of our events calling for the best in class, Italian-inspired, hand-crafted, beautiful ovens. Simply the best.
If you want the best pizza then you need to work with the BEST OVENS and Marra Forni is the company that creates them. I’ve always been a firm believer that wood burning is only way to get that perfect high heat and bubbly crispy crust but I was proven wrong.
We currently have 3 different ovens and each meet the needs per the location. The one thing they have in common is they all work perfect! Marra Forni has been nothing but a pleasure to work with from a customer service standpoint, creative design and just a company that shares a passion for food and business relationships as we do. I’m looking forward to our next project together!
We have a Woodstone oven in one of our operations and were apprehensive to switch ovens for a new concept. We decided to give it a try and went with the Marra Forni. First off, the order was processed on schedule with ease. Once we began using the oven we found that the product cooked in it was above our expectations. We are so happy we went with Marra Forni and plan to order another one for our next location. Its important to have a good supplier on your side.
I just have to say that we love the oven here at Poppis. It makes a great, crispy pizza, and our customers are always giving compliments as it is a focal point behind the counter. Thanks!!
I am the Executive Chef of a new restaurant opening up later this fall. We purchased the Rotator series oven from Marra Forni. My team and I drove down for a couple days to train with Anthony, their culinary director, and it was well worth the 8 hour drive from Michigan! Anthony was very knowledgable and informative about the oven and gave numerous tips on how to make a better pie. His personality was very inviting and made for a fun learning environment. While there we were able to meet with their head engineer, Stavri and he went over all of the mechanical aspects with us. It was a great visit, we left there feeling so confident in the oven we purchased.
When I started developing my concept I researched many different pizza oven. In January Hari Cameron and I spent the day with all the boys at Marra Forni. They were incredible hosts and I knew when I walked out the door my restaurant would be purchasing one of their beauties. I have the 140cm gas assist…..I can wait to purchase another one!
I’ve been in the pizza business for 25+ years and have participated in numerous national and international pizza competitions. I’m also a founding member of the World Pizza Champions. I’ve done business with numerous brick oven companies and I have found that Marra Forni and their management and design teams are absolutely a step above their competitors. Most oven companies claim that their ovens most crucial components are authentic in keeping with the proven traditional Italian ways. I can tell you from experience that most of their claims are false and building materials are imported from China or various other places and intended to misguide you by saving a few bucks and in turn you’ll get a sub par oven. The old saying goes, “you get what you pay for” and this cannot be more true in the oven industry. I can’t stress enough that oven design and building materials such as dome specifications and the type of refractory brick used are crucial in creating a dependable oven that can be used in any application and stand the test of time. I back Marra Forni 100% and I look forward to doing business with them again in the very near future!
I researched all the wood fired ovens available before opening my pizzeria. (Pizzeoli Wood Fired Pizza Napoletana). Ultimately I decided to go with Marra Forni. Why? Everyone I talked with tried to tell me how great their ovens were and how much better they were from the competition yet Marra Forni gave me the opportunity to come to their facility in Maryland to talk with them and try out the ovens. They also were able to deliver the oven within a 3-4 week time period. Anthony and Jeff were very friendly and professional. They explained the benefits of owning a Marra Forni oven but at the same time didn’t knock the competition. The oven is beautiful and performs superbly. It is a certified Neapolitan oven by the AVPN so you can’t doubt its authenticity. Since we opened we received numerous awards; St. Louis Magazine A-List for Best Pizza in St. Louis, St. Louis Post Dispatch Go-List 2015 for best pizza in St. Louis, Ian Froeb’s top 100 restaurants in St. Louis, Top 20 Yelp Restaurants in St. Louis among other awards. What can I say, the Marra Forni oven not only performs as a top quality oven but it is a lovely piece of artwork as well that awes the customers. It has to be the best looking oven on the market in my opinion. When the oven sits in the middle of the dining room it better look good.
The Pizza Rox crew went to Marra Forni’s for training on our new RT 130 Oven this week. The facility is top notch. The Marra Forni employees are all responsive, professional and make you feel right at home. Marra Forni’s ovens are simply the best with the best support in the industry. I just wanted to say special thanks to Mika, Carlos, Stavri, Anthony our trainer/pizzaiolo and of course the man in charge Francesco! #PIZZAROXPIZZA #marraforni #marralove #freeyourpizza
Great ovens, great price! The service and responsiveness is also top notch! We’ve already ordered several ovens and are in the process of ordering more for our new restaurants!
I believe the most important appliance a pizzeria will ever purchase is its oven. Notwithstanding the quality of ingredients and skill of the pizzaiolo, the oven essentially defines the finished product. For that reason, I decided to thoroughly research and ultimately choose the best oven available. I spent two years getting to know the manufacturers & distributors, talking with pizzeria owners and studying the attributes and deficiencies of each oven. For me, it came down to two ovens that I felt were superior to the rest. Both designed for artisanal, Neapolitan style pizza. A lot of thought and research went into my final decision, knowing that the commitment to an oven is a monumental decision. One that isn’t easily reversible. I chose Marra Forni. Simply put, the Marra team is building what I believe is the finest artisan, hand-crafted brick oven on the market today. Ease of use, quality of materials, thermal design, deck, dome and finish..it’s everything we wanted in a true Neapolitan oven. The Marra brothers, Enzo and Francesco are passionate about their ovens and unlike some builders; Marra Forni has taken a centuries-old tried and proven design and improved on it. I spent several days with the team at their headquarters outside of Washington D.C. and was impressed with the research & ingenuity lead engineer (Stavri) has incorporated into their ovens. Underneath the veneer of the beautiful tiles lies an oven concept that has stood the test of time for hundreds of years, integrated with modern materials and an innovative design formula I didn’t see in the others. Their sales reps, Anthony & Jeff are extremely passionate & knowledgeable about their product and both were generous with their time and patience. These two offer a wealth of information about the oven and the industry. I also like that Marra Forni provides on-site consulting, an advantage for any operator, especially someone starting their first Neapolitan pizzeria.
For me, making artisanal pizzas is an art form and I see the Marra Forni oven as the palette our art is created with. Each piece of work produced in it is a masterpiece. Buon lavoro Marra Forni.
