Great food and an awesome atmosphere!

Very impressed, delicious food (and a lot of it) in a very nice setting. Arriving I really liked the decor and the atmosphere of the place. The service was good, the food was tasty and I would definitely go back.

Il Forno, in any of the restaurants, is a really good place for lunch or dinner. The menu includes lots of selection going from pasta to pizzas, salads and sandwiches. Additionally, the service normally is really good and the prices are really fine. It is a place to repeat constantly.

Went twice, both times good service & food. I ordered off the back page where you can build your own plate and it was a very good value overall. Recommended.

We were hoping for some authentic italian cuisine but were disappointed. Menu looked promising and i guess the credits go to the photographer and editors. For an insipd soup, salad and a shared pizza we paid around us$ 30 which i guess isnt a lot of money but you can do better for that amount in Medellin.

First of all, I went to the restaurant located in Puerta del Norte Shoping Center....The food was good, but it took some time to receive atention. I guess that may be they have few employees for the people that visit them . Overall experience was good for me.
