We visited this restaurant for dinner and called the chef Sun Visna for his advice on the dinner .menu as we are all vegetarian and tourists from India. He suggested us very good menu and when the food arrived each and every item which he prepared for us was delicious. One of our best experiences of fine Italian food.
This experience will be remembered for a long time . Thanks

We chose Do Forni to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Called for booking a day before, Theara picked up the call and I just mentioned that I needed a good seating arrangement with nice atmosphere to have a wonderful dinner on my wedding anniversary day. The day came, everything was well-prepared. The table was decorated with flower in heart shaped and candle. They also gave us a nice chocolate cake, without charging us any extra fee. We were served by Phanna. She could explain very well how each dish was cooked. It was easy for us to decide. She recommended us a few nice dishes and also wine. Every staff gave us friendly smile and good service. Thanks Do Forni for a memorable dinner. We will surely go back again.

What a treat this dinner was. A four course dinner decided by the chef and it was PERFECT. Not one dish had a speck of food on it when we were done. Super Chef Fabrizio Aceti and his team are masters at creating both amazing food and amazing ambiance. Am already planning my next trip back!

This restaurant was recommended by a colleague and was located in the hotel (sofitel) I stayed so I decided to give it a try.

I received a warm welcome by the staff and their contract chef Fabrizio.

Ordered a scallop entree and the blue shrimp ravioli. Both dishes were prepared immaculately and were very authentic.

To my surprise, I was also treated with other very tasty complimentary dishes so my original 2 course meal ended up to be a 4 course meal.

The service staff were very attentive and I can see from the quality of the dishes that the kitchen staff are extremely well trained.
Would definitely recommend this restaurant if anyone fancy Italian food in Phnom Penh.
