Description: Il Forno is a family run business with a new management. At Il Forno we specialise in Roman style Pizza which has a soft but crunchy thin base. We follow the traditional way of Pizza making which does not grant the use of any machinery for the handling of the dough, not even a rolling pin can be used. We do it the old way, by hand! At Il Forno you will find a little corner of Italy where the owner and staff are Italians. To ensure a true Italian Pizza to our customers we import a lot of our ingredients and the local ingredients we use are made by Italians here in Australia.

Definately not Italian! We ordered the Bufala and had pretty much no flavour. It states buffalo mozzarella but it was not buffalo. OVERRATED

For a quick, tasty meal, Il Forno is an excellent option. You can eat in or takeaway, and dine inside or al fresco.

We visited twice in the 9 days we were in Palm Cove. Italian style pizzas were divine, but they also cater for the Aussie taste with more common toppings. The service was very quick and friendly - exactly what we needed our first night when we were jetlagged and exhausted. Ideal for families, or anyone.

Haven't had pizza this good since I was in Italy. If you like a true italian style pizza this is a must. Simple, basic ingredients with beautiful flavours - would've gone back if I'd had the time. Only negative is staff cleared our table when we stepped outside for a cigarette (we told them we were just stepping outside and when we returned our table had been cleared when it still had two glasses of wine on it). Otherwise would highly recommend.

Had dinner here with a large group.
Staff were responsive and accommodated the adults and children well.
Pizza's were served quickly and were delicious - watch the chilli one!!
We have been coming here for years, and whilst they no longer have the woodfired oven, it's a must visit in Palm Cove
