“Great pizza when you want something different!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Il Forno is situated on the sea-front in Kalives and it serves fantastic pizzas! They are huge, and excellent quality .... often the "left overs" are sufficient for lunch the following day. The Greek food in Kalives is fantastic, but it is sometimes nice to have a pizza for a change. The service is efficient and friendly. They also do take aways for those nights when you want to stay at the apartment!

“Great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

Excellent pizza and garlic bread. Glad we decided to share as they are quite big. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Lovely location on the beach and reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Il forno is located on the beach and it serves delicious pizzas, made in their wood oven. Good variety of pasta and greek plates also. Normal prices, friendly staff. Recommended.

“Nice and friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

A nice Italian restaurant right on the beach.
The food is very nice - it might not be the best Italian food you have ever tried but it's decent and fresh and very good in Greek-island standards.
The staff is very nice and friendly, and the place is very children friendly - they have the best baby seat we've seen on the island :-)

“Good Food & Friendly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Have been eating here on holidays since 1998. It was the very first restaurant that we visited all those years ago. George & Stella are still there serving freshly cooked great food at a very competitive price. Everyone is very friendly and we always receive a warm welcome from all the staff. Great location looking out over the beach.
