We created Il Forno in 2011 after many years dreaming of opening a traditional Italian Restaurant outside Italy where we would serve authentic Italian food like our grandmothers used to cook. The only addition to our grandmother's kitchen was the building of an original stone brick fire wood oven from where to make pizzas according to the southern italian tradition. We pride to import every single ingredient ( veggie & fruits aside)on our menu directly from Italy and to make all our food home made and fresh daily. Our fantastic team of chefs/cooks start their day very early to prepare our pizza dough that need 10/12 hours before its naturally risen and to prepare home made tagliatelle, tortellini , gnocchi and so on , exactly like we used to in Italy half a century ago.

Great Italian food!

Food was delicious! We got the gnocchi which was a little strange; but good. The parma ham pasta was delicious. I recommend getting a pizza tho because those looked incredible and smelled unbelievable.

I live in Siem Reap but I'm not from Cambodia. My taste in Italian cuisine was also not formed in those well-known culinary Meccas of Sydney and Wellington. Il Forno is a little tourist trap of a joint, cute in it's own way, in an alley off the decidedly un-cute Pub Street Tourist Ghetto. Unlike the hundreds of other dinning... More

Bongiorno !! sick of all this rice dishes ? I love rice and curry - one reason to travel through Asia - but after a while I was tired off it.

Il Forno is a small place with about 8 tables and was packed at dinner time both times that we visited. The restaurant is owned by an Italian, so the cuisine is as authentic as you're going to get in SR. There were enough options for us, as vegetarians, on the menu and the food was tasty and service good,... More

This Italian restaurant is in town in the pub street area.This is the second times for us at Il Forno restaurant, but we had order delivered pizza many times, the staff were very friendly and especially the food was fabulous and the services were fast too. If you looking for Italian food, Il Forno is the best. Highly recommended.

Went here because of the rating on TA. Unfortunately I got to sit so I could see all the owners antics with the female staff.

Had two incredible meals at Il Forno! It was great Italian across the board but their lasagna really stood out. Right off pub street so you can out after if you're not too full!

Hey there Kelsey, Wow what a review. Thank you so much for calling us the best Italian in South East Asia. Now, we'll have to work very hard to maintain that title!

I came across this restaurant online while searching for Italian food near Pub Street and I highly recommend it! My husband and I ordered a medium pizza (w spicy salami) and a mushroom gnocchi. The servings are generous and prices are also very affordable. Definitely a must-try if you want something different from the local Khmer food.

Hi there, Thank for that awesome review. We are indeed quite well-known for our pizzas and gnocchi recipes. And we love that every time visitors want to try something different from the Khmer food, they almost always end-up at our little restaurant. Please do come visit soon when you are in Siem Reap again. Have a lovely day! More

Stopped by for dinner on a recommendation from a friend. I grew up on the east coast so I'm a pizza snob. This was pretty good as far as pizza goes. Good service and great prices.
