We gave the il forno another try last month but unfortunately the pizza siciliana was extremely salty. Also the location on the caracasbaaiweg is suffering from lots of insects and musquitos which does not make dinner a pleasant experience.

We had dinner there tonight and it was just OK. It was overrun with children having a birthday party and playing on the playground. Definitely very kid friendly. We were looking for pizza reminiscent of Italy but really found pizza that I'd compare to frozen dough cooked. Also we were a bit amused when one of the kids yelled for... More

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

There is no point on waiting near 1 hour just to hear how sorry they are for running out of pizza at 10 p.m. an all your family starving...

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
