It's not my first time eating at Il Forno. I go frequently to indulge in their fantastic fresh, brick-oven baked pizzas. But today I went to get some lunch with my partner and we left so disappointed. If we weren't so hungry we would've sent the food back or go somewhere else for lunch. The lady who helped us at...

We first visited in 2009 and fell in love with the pasta carbonara. After dreaming about it, we returned to Curacao in 2014 and found the restaurant again. The pasta was just as good. The pizza is wonderful and fire cooked as well. The service is some of the best on island. The free shuttle is a bonus as well!... More

It is incredible what happens there, after one hour they told us... "I am sorry to tell you but we do not have more pizza" ... AFTER 1 HOUR... There are no excuses...

Looking for Italian food? Look no further! We took the free shuttle from our resort in Jan Thiel bay to Il Forno. Still can't believe this service is absolutely free of charge. We had some salads and bruscetta (do try them!) for starters and pizza for main course. Service was ok, and food delicious. Our daughters had a great time... More

This restaurant was the first, to serve thin crust pizza European style. It's been many years now but the pizza chef at Mahaai has always been the same person, making their pizza consistent. Pasta has ups and downs, so I stick to pizza. Their salad is also very tasty. They have promo now for lunch, pizza for Naf 15 and... More

I'm a regular at Il Forno (usually the one in mahaai) for their pizza. This month I tried the all you can eat pizza on monday for the first time and it was fantastic. I had the chicken margarita, the three cheeses and then the il forno. So delicious! I finished it off with a sundae, africa I think it... More

We found the food at ll Forno to be okay, but we are very, very, picky, on Italian foods. Pizza is better than ok if you add gouda cheese to it - isn't everything. The deserts however, are out of this world. We find them to be very well adorned and to have quite a variety. The soup is what... More

Il Forno Mahaai is nothing special, but the place looks nice and cosy. Their pizza's are very good with a thin crusty bottom as I like them (others may have other preferences). Prices are ok, especially on all you can eat Monday when a visit to Il Forno is a bargain and the place gets crowded, so you had better... More
