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

I loveeeee their food. And I am not saying this as a ex-employee but as a customer. But the service is sometimes not so great. (And I am not saying that because something happened with me and the managers or anything. I don't work there anymore because I moved away for University). When I am on vacation on Curaçao I... More

Finally a place on the island where you get what you pay for. The pizza was great and so were the salads. Many of the pizza's are unique to ingredients on the island and not typical American styles which made the experience even better. Seating is relaxed and outside so you can come after a day at the beach and... More

My husband & I visit this place from time to time since I love Italian, actually all Mediterranean food. I am from Mediterranean & I can't live without it. Service is most of the time ok, here & there could be more attentive & offer second drink. I love their garlic bread & tapenade, eggplant parmigiana is great, carpaccio is... More

They have good wood-baked pizzas, pastas and other Italian specialties. The wait staff are pleasant.

We eat at Il Forno at least once during our annual vacation in Curacao. This year we took advantage of the pick up service the restaurant provides. The driver was prompt, polite, and a competent driver. We order Sangria (one of our favorites) and 2 pizzas. The pizza was wonderful. For dessert we shared a crème brulee. We will return... More

We ordered four different pizza's at Il Forno and were surprised by the excellent quality. We didn't expect to find such a nice pizza restaurant on a tropical island. Also the service was good and it didn't take long before we got our food.

Il forno has long been one of our entire family's go-to options and when the kids return to island from abroad, this is always on their short list of island favorites.

We were so excited for this pizza as we had high expectations...it was only average:( It was good and filled our bellies but it was not amazing by any means. We called in our order and picked it up as we rented a house on the island. I would say try it and make your own assumption but to us... More

Living rather around the corner from the restaurant on the Caracasbaaiweg it is for us always nice to just grab a pizza. This time they were different from what we are used to, they said a new cook... Whatever it was a big disappointment, too much flower underneath crust too tough and a very dull taste. I really never understand... More
