Description: A wonderful Taverna at the beachside in Kalives Crete. Although known for their great pizzas, the owners, Giorgos and Stella, provide some of the best food available along with a friendly Devil may care attitude to whatever anyone might want to get up to. Lots of fun all year round. Come join us!

We were lucky enough to have 2 evenings at Il Forno, both times it was very busy and the second time we waited for a table. On both occasions the food was amazing. We sampled both Italian and Greek favourites, both were equally as good.

The hospitality and friendliness of the staff, in particularly Maria, was great. She was very attentive to the customers and full of energy.
We hope to return next year!

This is a restaurant which provides good food (both Italian and Greek), good service, and as a customer you definitely want to come back. The pizza was quite good, crispy crust with a good balance of cheese and sauce. If you order a spicy pizza, it does pack some heat (not too much) - I've been in countless other Greek restaurants where it says spicy on the menu, and all you get is some pepper flavour.

After all the positive reviews we were disappointed with the quality of our meal. My lamb chops were overcooked and dry.Chips were average
The restaurant is pleasant but not the best in Kalives.

Really lovely food, great service with a smile and fab location on the beach front. Would recommend for a family meal or couples.
