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.

Plain and simple: very tasty pizza and very good service. Lots of options and quick take-away service. Would recommend highly.

My teenage sons and I were looking for something tasty, quick and not expensive one night for dinner while visiting Palm Cove for three nights. Il Forno pizza was perfect! Both boys said this was one of the best pizzas they have ever had!

Really nice pizzas. The whole family enjoyed their choices. Place was really busy so only got a take away, but still very impressed

Ate here and had a pizza as well as a "garlic bread." Both were ok but nothing special. The staff were friendly but it was a little overpriced for what you actually got.

Il Forno is fairly small and not as swanky as some of the other restaurants in Palm Cove but I am sure that you will not regret paying a visit. The pizza's are delicious with thin bases and great toppings and the price was very fair. We enjoyed the whole meal and could even recommend the house wine which completed the experience. The biggest surprise of all was the quality of the grappa which we had at the end of the evening. Definitely worth a trying.
