Ventured in for our second visit in 7 nights. Typically hot humid night, we ordered the meat lovers (yes no BBQ sauce you beauty) and the Milano. Job well done! Melbourne pizza makers take note good pizza made with care and passion and a welcoming smile. Well done guys we will be recommending your place to friends.

We were looking for an easy uncomplicated eating experience and well this place hit the mark. The pizzas were really tasty and a great size. The service was fun. The wine came out in an oversized stubble cooler and served in tumblers. Wonderful night out. Well done.

Il Forno is an excellent family restaurant or if you are looking for a simple casual meal. Simple menu made up largely of pizzas which are very tasty. The staff are friendly, efficient and understand service. We had dinner here with our children while holidaying in Palm Cove. Although simple one of the better dining experiences we had. The menu...

When we got there there were no tables available and were told it may take 30min to get one. Luckily while we were deciding what we wanted to take-away, a table became free. So we stayed and had a great time. The staff were excellent. Great service and atmosphere. Their Nutella Calzone was sooo gooood. But was definitely a 2... More

We loved the food so much we ate here twice in one week. Excellent homemade thin crust pizzas. Lots of choices of pizzas as well as salads. And don't miss out on the best dessert - white chocolate raspberry pizza!

Didn't think we could manage a whole pizza each but these were so light and delicious, it was easy! The antipasto platter at the next table looked fabulous though - maybe next time! Great service and atmosphere. Highly recommended.
