Cheap and cosy compared to other italian restaurants in Poblado, but unfriendly staff and small portions, we left the table hungry and we're not BIG eaters.

It was the Italian food that I had been missing while on my trip to Colombia. The food was wonderful as well as the service.

Il Forno is a local chain and it's all right. I would never go out of my way to dine there, but when I'm hungry and don't want to spend a pile, it's adequate. The tomatoes stuffed with solomito are a good starter. The pizzas are good. The lasange and canneloni are just OK. The service is decent, but not... More

Well worth a visit for good well priced Italian food. Large semi open restaurant with less music than elsewhere in the area . Excellent octopus carpaccio.Pizza Fiorentina tasty but a bit short of ham and cheese.

Unexpensive lunch with a view. Food is Italian and it was good enough for the price. Restaurant is located on an area where you have like 7 restaurants right next to each other. Good choice for lunch.

I wouldn't go out of my way as a tourist to eat here. It's pretty much a local chain of restaurants - my friend called it an Olive Garden lol. The white wine sangria was amazing! The service was sketchy, and the overall food was ok, nothing to go crazy over.

Had the pasta and the stuffed tomato. Stuffed tomato was great. Pasta was average. My overall opinion of this chain is its a solid place to eat when you don't feel like being adventurous but also don't want to rush. They also have value options.

Portion sizes were perfect, flavours were amazing. I had the Greca salad, my friends had a Caeser salad and the ravioli all was delicious. Only thing that let them down was the Cocktails a brown mojito and an overly salty margarita. Other than that fantastic
