Great place for any moment

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.

The restaurant is very well situated it looks good and inviting. We ordered "il forno pizza" and a salad. The pizza had all the listed ingredients but no much taste. The salad was mediocre. We each ordered a cup of juice - one mango and one strawberry. Neither tasted like juice and we had to return them. The manager was... More

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.

When shopping in Exito at Laureles, we have lunch at Il Forno and have not been disappointed with any of the dishes we have ordered. They have a reasonable selection of wines and last Wednesday they had a "promotion" - pay for one half bottle, and receive a full bottle of wine! The service has always been cheerful without being...

This place is fabulous. The stuffed tomatoes and the salads here are just amazing. The atmosphere was open and had fresh air with soft music and lighting for a fine dinner dining experience on several occasions. Highly recommended but nor for those on a budget.
