We had bruschetta to start and a pizza each. Food was extremely fresh and tasty! Staff were friendly and helpful. We would definitely go back again and recommend this place. Bit more pricey than most but well worth it.

Uncomplicated and very consistent! I have been coming here for years, and it is always the same! Products used are good, atmosphere friendly and the place is clean. Reliable food in the center of Siem Reap with some highlights! I personally like the Scamorza cheese pizza!

We've taken many friends here, and they have aways enjoyed everything on the menu! Wonderful, diverse, options with something for everyone. Excellent thin crust pizzas that simply have to be experienced. Very friendly and attentive staff, with a fun and convenient location near Pub Street.

Had the melanzane, pizza margerita and gnocchi and ravioli. All were excellent and freshly prepared. The pizza was outstanding and my best pizza in Asia. Not a fancy restaurant but great if you are hungry and need some delicious Italian food. Service was very caring but slow and slightly uncoordinated.

You wouldn't expect to find excellent Italian food in Siem Reap, but Il Forno would be considered an outstanding Italian restaurant in any city outside Italy. The pastas and pizzas are all made completely from scratch using the freshest ingredients that must be pretty hard to find in Cambodia. It really tastes like skillfully prepared food. The service could be... More

This italian resturant would be considered a good place also in Italy. We were surprised by the high quality of food and the tasty home-made pasta. Pizza is really good as well.

My wife and I ate here last month and it's a real nice Italian restaurant just off Pub Street. The food is excellent and cooked well - the Tiramisu I had for dessert I'd particularly recommend - and the staff are very friendly. If you're looking for good Italian food this is the place to go

Description
We created Il Forno in 2011 after many years dreaming of opening a traditional Italian Restaurant outside Italy where we would serve authentic Italian food like our grandmothers used to cook. The only addition to our grandmother's kitchen was the building of an original stone brick fire wood oven from where to make pizzas according to the southern italian tradition. We pride to import every single ingredient ( veggie & fruits aside)on our menu directly from Italy and to make all our food home made and fresh daily. Our fantastic team of chefs/cooks start their day very early to prepare our pizza dough that need 10/12 hours before its naturally risen and to prepare home made tagliatelle, tortellini , gnocchi and so on , exactly like we used to in Italy half a century ago.
