Excellent

Excellent meal in a relaxing atmosphere after all the noise of old and new Manali town. The view is good, the food even better! Authentic pizza, with good-quality cheese and ham, and the plum juice was an interesting and yummy choice.

The view & ambiance of the restaurant is just fantastic. Adding to that the food was superbly delicious.. The owner herself is a very gentle & has warm smile on her face while you enter the restaurant. She personally takes care of the guests requirement and makes good suggestions.

From the beautiful Kathguni house to sumptuous Italian food to the very welcoming owner and staff.. I'd give IL FORNO a 10 on 10. I tried mushroom and tomato bruschetta, a veg lasagne and a crunchy pizza. It was the fresh vegetables and the crust of the pizza that did it for me as it lacks otherwise in other joints.... More
