Looked much better than it tasted. Wouldn’t split a slice at €13 so not that cheap. Shop was full of flies. Won’t be back but plenty of others obviously disagree

Pizza was not good . Place is dirty . I spent 9 EUR for a piece of pizza with anchovies . It’s better to go to restaurant.

We were drawn into the shop by the incredible range of focaccia-style pizzas in the window and decided to eat inside. I prefer thinner Neapolitan style pizzas but the thicker ones at Il Fornaio were packed with flavour. The staff are very friendly and helpful....This is a great choice for a quick bite to eat.More

Worst pizza I ever ate. Came as a couple and ordered two different pizzas. Both weren't good at all. The service was quick though

Nice cookies and pizza by the slices. It’s definitely not the best pizza in the city, however, it’s a good and affordable option for a fast meal.

Huge selection of pizza sold by the slice. Additionally, a confectionery, bakery and cafe in one. Pizza is bought by the piece and by weight. It is not a typical Italian pizza on a thin crust. An interesting combinations of many flavors. You can also...sit upstairs and eat a pizza or take with you to the city. You can buy here also cookies and local sweets. Panini with chocoate is so tasty. Great coffee, friendly service and great atmosphere.More

Absolutely amazing pizza. We eat buffala, insalata, spinaci and tonno. Fantastic. Not very cheap- a slice can be 4-9 euros but it s totally worth it.

On arrival we were not sure what to eat, but pizza looked delicious. We were trying to find prices, but hard to understand. Pizza was great, but quite expensive. We payed 13 Euros for two peaces.

I had lunch there during my trip to Bergamo. Pizza was tasty and I loved local dessert - Polenta e Osei. :)

Pizza was ok, not the best you’ll find in Bergamo. It does look appealing from the window. There is extra seating upstairs.

For an hungry tourist, Il Fornaio is the perfect location. Not a gourmet restaurant, but you can find here manny kind of pizza and other italian dishes, at pretty good prices. A special note - the visual impresion of the different dishes. It is impossible...to get inside and to not buy something.More

Huge selection of takeaway pizzas, just near the main piazza in the Old Town so plenty of places to sit and people watch. Very good and decent value.

The tables are really close together but it's worth the stop. The food was very good along with really good wine. The location is so easy to find but the little place fills up fast so don't hestite to stop early for lunch or dinner.
