Really tasty dishes can be found here at reasonable prices. Its varieties of pizza and lasagna are delicious. A warm environment and quick service are two of many features.

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.

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

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.
