One of the worst pizzas I’ve had. I’ve had pizza in a lot of different cities and countries too. Pizza was absolutely drowned in tasteless cheese and ingredients really poor. Decor was like a 1980s restaurant- forgivable if the pizza was decent but it wasn’t

Il Fornaccio is a gem, serving excellent Italian Food with a balanced and diverse restaurant from Pizza to Veal with lots of dishes in between. We were utterly surprised by such an extensive menu in a small family restaurant - a classic family operation.

We waited more than 30 mins just to order and we started eating 1h later. The service was really bad, the waitress also spent 15 mins to give us the bill after we asked for it!! We also changed our order in 4 pizzas instead...More

The person who cooks there know the meaning of quality. The pizza italia was fine cuisine. The tagliateli was also delicious. I recommend this restaurant. The atmosphere is very cosy. I really enjoyed eating there.

Small and cozy Italian restaurant. The food is fresh, delicious and comfortable. The place is kind of hidden. The dishes take a while to come. But it is worth waiting.
