My partner and I visited Il Forno 3 times over our 5 day stay in Siem Reap and 2 out of 3 visits weren't great unfortunately. On our first visit on on our first day we visited and we were seated with another couple which we thought was a little odd but were ok with except that were chain smoking... More

A staff at the hotel I stay recommended me to try Il forno. I only had one medium Parma ham pizza with rocket "Pizza Ricca". It is 'love at first bite' and make me compare to the Pizza I used to try at several places while in Italy. I admit this is one of the best. They use all fresh... More

Find your way down a back street and into Il forno for really fine Italian food in the heart of the Pub Street, Siem Reap city. From the skinny bread sticks for munchies before dinner to outstanding lasagna and pasta in cream sauce. This was a great stop.

We ate at this restaurant twice. The wine list is small but does contain familiar wines at reasonable prices. I had pasta and pizza both were very good. The servers were very good and spoke English quite well. This restaurant gets busy later in the evening. We didn't have reservations but they may be required if you are more than... More

Delicious pizza, one of the best we've ever had!! Great value, we got a medium each because it was only lunch and struggled to finish! Owners were lovely and I think actually Italian :)

After reading other Trip Advisor posts we went to Il Forno for dinner tonight. The restaurant setting in the lane is a nice reprieve from the busy streets. Loved the Pumpkin Ravioli ( ate some before I took the photo) and the Penne Arrabbiata. Service was very good. Note: If you order the green salad you will get a bowl... More

Great Italian food in a simple restaurant off a laneway. I had the best pumpkin ravioli ever – done just how I love it. I would have gone back again just for that. My passionfruit brulee was also delicious. This place has plain wooden seats and tables, so it wasn't somewhere I wanted to linger. But was good for a... More

Il Forno comes highly recommended and deservedly so. Tuck yourself into one of the few available tables and order at will. My two nights there for dinner did not disappoint, pleasant staff, good wines, and buzzy atmosphere.. Reasonable prices. Enjoy.

Authentic Italian in Siem Reap. Food was delicious! We ordered a pasta bolognese and pizza Bianca. Felt like I was in Italy. We were tempted to go back during our 3 day stay.

Description
We created Il Forno in 2011 after many years dreaming of opening a traditional Italian Restaurant outside Italy where we would serve authentic Italian food like our grandmothers used to cook. The only addition to our grandmother's kitchen was the building of an original stone brick fire wood oven from where to make pizzas according to the southern italian tradition. We pride to import every single ingredient ( veggie & fruits aside)on our menu directly from Italy and to make all our food home made and fresh daily. Our fantastic team of chefs/cooks start their day very early to prepare our pizza dough that need 10/12 hours before its naturally risen and to prepare home made tagliatelle, tortellini , gnocchi and so on , exactly like we used to in Italy half a century ago.
