Great service

We were just on a day visit and were hot and tired. I just wanted a drink and my wife wanted a little to eat. The staff were very responsive, friendly and helpful. My wife just wanted a starter and ordered bruschetta. The service was quick and the waitress had assumed that we were going to share... read more

Fantastic pizza, IF you do not get caught in the crowds that the cruise ships bring in. We had a nice relaxing time for lunch, and the pizza was fantastic.

As usual, I had the seafood pizza and it was fabulous, even the 2 pieces I had for breakfast the next day! We'll go back again this trip and I'll make myself have something else delicious. And a great part of the evening is that they pick you up and drive you home. Thanks, Il Forno.

Shortly I discovered that Il Forno offers a weekday lunch special for only 15 guilders, incluiding pizza, pasta or salade of your choice plus a refresing glass of fresh awa limunchi (lemonade). The pizza's are made good and fast and service is very nice. Special goes for take out during lunch time as well.

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...
