“Good food, service could be more personable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 May 2014

I've visited Il Forno several times over the past years and the quality of food is consistently good, with generous portions. It is worth noting that the restaurant is one of the "go-to" places of all Nicosians if you fancy a quick, casual Italian which also speaks volumes for its quality. The service is quite efficient and the staff knows the menu, however the they usually seems a bit disengaged and not that bothered of your custom which is a shame, as slightly friendlier attitude would make a difference.

For larger parties I'd recommend a reservation as the place is always crowded.

“Always Good Italian in the Old Town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014

Il Forno is the place we go when we just want a good quality pizza or pasta. It's very reliable, always tasty with cleverly designed pasta and pizza dishes. The location is great and makes for excellent people watching.

“Good Calzone, street ambience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

Vegetarian calzone very good. Nice large portion with plentiful filling. Street dining on main Nicosia 'to be seen' leisure road/area. Small informal restaurant and service good. Bit cramped but okay for street dining.

“Great location, overcrowded”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2014

This place serves the best pizza in town, but its over crowded and you never get to eat comfortably. The service is great though but its claustrophobic and it feels like they want you to leave so they get the next client.
