Il Forno Restaurant


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

Il Forno is a family run business with a new management. At Il Forno we specialise in Roman style Pizza which has a soft but crunchy thin base. We follow the traditional way of Pizza making which does not grant the use of any machinery for the handling of the dough, not even a rolling pin can be used. We do it the old way, by hand! At Il Forno you will find a little corner of Italy where the owner and staff are Italians. To ensure a true Italian Pizza to our customers we import a lot of our ingredients and the local ingredients we use are made by Italians here in Australia.

I usually don't eat pizza. Hubby loves it. This was the most enjoyable pizza I've had ever. Even left overs next day were great. Staff attentive and friendly. Recomend the salmon pizza. To die for.

We walked to this restaurant from our hotel not knowing what to expect. But we got a nice table, the food was excellent, and the service was attentive. A very pleasant surprise!

Great pizza. Prices on par with southern city prices so actually represents excellent value for its location. The fact the host has invested in a dough fridge to counter sea air and humidity is one of many small things (including first rate ingredients) that make...More
