Il Forno deserves to be ranked the number 1 Italian restaurant in India. However in saying that, it is genuine Italian food so someone who thinks Italian food is Dominos or Pizza Hut might be surprised (educated:) Pizzas are thin base with not a huge amount of topping but seriously good. Veg Lasagne was perfect and the two deserts on... More

I read a lot in tripadvisor about this place and hence took lot of pain to wait in queue. But finally got a mushroom cheese pizza which was average, not worth the wait at all. I had better italian food in Mom's Kitchen down the road. The only plus point was that this place doesn't use any artificial flavours or... More

It was my birthday and I was confused where to give my friends a treat. Then somebody in my neighbourhood suggested me about one of the best pizza huts in Manali , and thus we set off to your place. As we entered the place the ambience was wonderful and praiseworthy. The food was excellent and the servings were also... More

We visited the place by reading the trip advisor reviews but we did not like the place at all.. The staff was very rude and they did not bothered to smile or suggest anything good on being asked. The pizzas were thin crust , but were not crispy at all.. infact the base of the pizza was quite thin and... More

Its a small little nook with a cafe and a eating joint owned and managed by the family itself.though the menu offers quite a lot of choice but the ilforno special pizza( ordered most often) was lacking in the flavors. But overall its a good place to spend a lazy afternoon or evening with friends or family.

The restaurant has a beautiful location and you can opt to sit either inside or on the patio and enjoy the beautiful view outside. They have a simple menu that will offer you choices for salads, pastas & pizzas. And they have amazing options for desserts and drinks. I thoroughly enjoyed the bruschetta, the pasta and the pizzas. The ginger... More
