a nice & quite place to be with family & friends... the pizzas were really tasty. Kids loved their pastas as well. The place had a feel of fresh air and wonderful view of the trees. Kids had a great time playing in the open lawn. Lovely wooden structure (must have been an old building) & nice interiors

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

The pizzas were thin crust , but were not crispy at all.. infact the base of the pizza was quite thin and... More
