Authentic Italian pizzas that rival those we had in Italy. Amazing and the service was second to none. We ate here a few times and also got take away for the kids which was just as good. Beautiful location sitting outside with the gentle breeze...while watching the ocean.More

The quality reminds me of Europe. Guaranteed you won't find better. Gluten free base is next level. Add in sound of the ocean and a warm breeze and voila. Happiness achieved.

We found Il Forno on our last trip to Palm Cove and for this trip we had both prioritised eating there again. It didn’t disappoint. If you love thin crust pizzas, great quality toppings, and a sprinkling of other things on the menu such as...antipasto platters and tiramisu, this is the place to eat. The pizza takes me back to my childhood in Lygon St Carlton in about 1974, absolutely amazing. The tiramisu hasn’t changed either, still amazingly good.More

wanted a pizza while watching the footy recently and came upon this pizza place. we picked it up and we got it for the time we told them. i havent had a takeaway pizza for years as i usually make my own as i find...restaurants dont seem to get it right.( usually too dry or not enough ingredients) but we were surprised how nice this pizza was and enjoyed every bit of it. maybe put my faith back into buying more pizzas at home ( maybe ) it wasnt dry and had the right amount of ingredients and the best thing was the base - just right for us.More

Tasty but Expected a lot, lot more topping/ingredients on each pizza......very lacking.... Also too busy to add additional toppers ie: anchovies to half only, can only buy them as a side in a small cold tub

Everything about our evening was superb. Pizzas were authentic and delicious, drinks flowed and staff were a delight. A must go to when in Palm Cove. The view was stunning too.
