Have dined there twice in 2 weeks - was very impressed with comprehensive menu (which clearly and usefully explains the food and what it comes with) and the variety of menu. Meal sizes are good, and food quality is excellent. The environment is nicely done...and tables are well spaced. Service staff are very good - polite and attentive, although very busy! It's a very good example of how to dine well in the suburbs and at moderate prices. It's firmly on our list of go to places now!More

Gatto Nero in Cernobbio. Bilicus in Bellagio. Il Posto in Florence. Trattoria alla Madonna in Venice. Roscioli, da Fortunata and Osteria Margutta in Rome. Da Gemma on Capri.The Garden in Ravello and Rosati in Naples all do great pasta dishes. But none do anything better...than the Maccaruna Calabrese at Il Forno in Hampton !More

Il Forno was a pleasant dinner place with great atmosphere and authentic Italian feel to it. The staff were interested and did it well in a restaurant that has a warm and friendly feel to it.The food was typical very good quality Italian and you...will not go hungry as the serving size is large. The wine list offered a good selection of local and Italian wine at sensible prices. A very good place, well run.More

Came for dinner with friends last week and from the moment we walked in there was a queue although we had booked, shown to our table and they left us there for a good while before anyone came to offer menus etc...slow very slow service....The calamari was very good, it comes with an aoli no salad so i ordered a side salad which was obviously from the night before dripping in dressing and wilted lettuce. The saltimboca looked good and so did the fish. Won’t be back here until they improve their service.More

The restaurant offers authentic Italian food. The atmosphere was very nice. Food was to die for. Very nice deserts and interesting cocktails. We have to come back to go through the menu...

4 of us and a 1 year old came for an early dinner. We shared lasagne, a stunning salad, fig pizza of the day and a Napoli pizza, they were all delicious. Our house Shiraz was lovely and the Peroni beers were great as well....Service 10/10 will definitely come again when next visit Melbourne!More

Il Forno is located in Hampton St and serves authentic Italian dishes. I had the Maccaruna Calabrese (ribbon pasta with Moreton Bay bugs and artichoke hearts) which was delicious. Il Forno (literally ‘the oven’) is cosy with a gallery of family photos on one wall...and has a great atmosphere. I will definitely return here. Warmly recommended ...More

We dropped in here with our granddaughter Grace for a midweek meal. Pizzas are one of our favourite foods so we ordered two along with ravioli and sardines. We still had room for desert!
