“Great vieuw, good pizza”
Reviewed October 31, 2011

My husband being Italian, there was no way we could ignore 'Il Forno' so we went up the stairs and had a great pizza. They actually cook it in a wooden oven, but instead of a horizontal one as they use in Italy it is a verical one (a hole) in which they lower the pizza. Great vieuw and nice staff. We stayed the whole afternoon reading, writing and looking around.

“service is pathetic”
Reviewed September 20, 2011

It's one of the best locations in Leh but just considering the service I would not advice anyone to even consider going there.

“Good Pizzas, slow service”
Reviewed August 27, 2011

Spread on the little terrace of one of the corner buildings on the main bazaar road, the Il Forno offers reasonably good pizzas and pasta. The place has vantage views of the Leh Palace and Jama Masjid and is a pleasant place to chill over a beer and conversation. Service is good but expect no frills in terms of ambience or atmosphere. One big plus when eating at one of the terrace restaurants in Leh is the dazzling view of the millions of stars in the sky during one of the frequent power outages.

“Excellent wood-fired oven pizzas”
Reviewed September 1, 2010

Excellent wood fired pizzas with a lovely ambiance and a great view from the terrace of the market street and the Leh Palace in the foreground. A lovely place to chill out with a chilled beer and excellent thin crust pizzas. At other times try out their great mint tea. Service gets a little tardy during rush hours but then who cares !!
