There are several Il Fornos in Medellin. We have been to several and you do find a small difference between each. the best thing about this menu is that there is something for everyone! the salads, pizza, pasta and steak have all been very good.

Very good pizza. Tourist and local party area. The locals get all dressed up to come into the Poblato area to eat and to party. If you dont like loud music and partying, eat and leave the area before 10ish, it gets loud quick.

There are several Il Forno restaurants in Medellin and evidently each presents different experiences. The one in the Viva Laureles is our favorite, being closer to our family's apartment. We have consistently had good food and friendly, efficient service. Unfortunately, we just missed their Wednesday 2 for 1 wine promotion! We also had lunch at their branch at the Laureles... More

Pretty good food at a great price. The incredibly slow and somewhat surly service keeps it from being rated very good. I

This place has a lot of solid options on the menu, from lasagne, pizza, to pasta dishes. Mostly Italian food.

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
