We eat their combinations toward the back of the menu. Salmon, caesar salad and a three cheese risotto. No bread but you do pick a sauce for the entree. They had a wine special last night. Full bottle for the price of a half bottle on a half dozen wines. We had a cabernet which was quite good. We also... More

I am not particullary fan of italian restaurants. I am a good cook and can do myself most of italian dishes. But Il Forno does them better than I do! Its menu is fantastic and has multiple options. The pizzas are really "gourmet" and the pastas are absolutelly delicious. There are several locations in Medellín, and one in Cali and... More

IL Forno offers a nice Italian fare and is mid-priced for Colombia. You will be pleased with the salads and pastas!

I went with my girlfriend to this Italian Restaurant in Parque Lleras and I was quite surprised at what I had. The Lasagna Bolgnese was delicious, hot and fresh and I ate the whole thing. I also had the Mediterranean salad which was quite good especially the Italian dressing. Service was friendly and attentive.

I have been to the "San Lucas" Il Forno location several times during my visits to Medellin. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. I have tried the pasta and chicken several times and always happy. If your in Medellin and have time try this restaurant and you wont be disappointed.

You can find a lot of different things in the menu to choose from: pastas, salads,... It's not too cheap, but not too expensive. I'm not too much of a pasta person, so the salads are always my choice. The lemonade is delicious.

There are several branches of Il Forno in Medellin. It's a casual option for Italian food. Don't expect fine cuisine - and I really have no complaints over the food. The restaurant is a good value for the price - with many varieties of pastas ranging from 15,000 to 22,000 pesos ($7 to $11 US). For these prices, the food... More

Interesting range of pizza toppings, nice thin base and tasty but the service was very slow so they arrived cold. Locals seemed to get served before we did. Good atmosphere and in the middle of the 'going out' area but average food.

Born and raised on Italian food, I was doubtful that Colombia would offer anything close to what I was used to. I walked into Il Forno and the experience exceeded my expectations. The choices, cooked in Woodfired ovens, were extensive. My pick, the Lasagna, served with a nice inexpensive wine ( by Colombian standards) was delicious, hot and cooked to... More
