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.

We took the kids here for pizza one evening and were happy with the relaxed atmosphere. The pizzas were great. The staff were very accommodating. The only negative is that it is upstairs and our youngest son had a tendency to run down the stairs!

The pizza (and pasta) here is very good quality, better than our favourites back home. The garlic bread is ok - quite dry, on pita bread which isn't really my thing. But the nutella dessert! YUM! Overall highly recommended, and a more moderate meal in a town of good, but pricier restaurants!

The pizza was awesome. We had the Il Forno pizza and a Special on GF base, was so impressed by GF base and the chilli was perfect.

Finished off with Nutella Calzone take away that was perfect.

Great pizzas!!!

Enjoyed pizza and a bottle of wine here tonight. The pizza crust is the closest to a Roman as I have had since Rome! Toppings good and the service friendly and efficient. The owner was very friendly. Could do with some decent wine glasses but that is minor. Overall a great night out in a relaxed atmosphere.
