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.

Service is absolutely terrible. We were served a water glass with a bottle of wine. When we asked for a wine glass the waiters responce was. "Well thats how they drink it in Italy" "I guess I can get you a wine glass if you really want one"

Second time visiting this restaurant both time bad service.

Food is good but for a salmon pizza its $25

Overall I think the need new staff. Or to pull their head out of their.... service made me mad enough to rate the place

Had a superb family meal, the service and attention was exceptional, I would highly recommend this place for anybody looking for a great pizza. Kids loved the Nutella calzone

The staff and service was great, they went the extra mile to make my son feel welcome and special. The pizzas were pretty good, not completely authentic but a nice base and toppings.

They do takeaway as well as eat in and I definitely recommend that you should have a meal from there whilst in Palm Cove.

This place is small but gee do they pump out the food. We wanted something casual before heading back to watch AFL Friday night...what a great start and North Melbourne won as well !

It's a lovely, no frills pizza place with very friendly owners and staff, excellent pizzas and a no nonsense attitude, so that wine is served in tumblers and tastes fine for it. It's not expensive and worth a visit.
