I had penne pasta with a basil pesto sauce and quinoa salad. Both the pasta and are the salad were nice. The pesto could have used some raw garlic and​ garlic but the meal was a pleasant change of pace and quite nice. The service was both good and friendly. A nice atmosphere.

Had a very nice carpaccio and sea food pasta. Tiramisu wasn't good though (basically didn't taste like it). Waiter forgot one side salad, which we had to correct on the bill.

Il Forno is a family-oriented Italian restaurant. Some authentic Italian food from basic to high-end. Solid food at reasonable prices, good service.

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

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.
