Pizza was okay ...... the owner/chef was nice and I believe tried to compensate for the waitress. Who never gave us a wine list ..... the pizza arrived before the wine .... we asked for an extra plate and water ..... had to get up and get it ourselves.

All looked good for a romantic night out - a beautiful evening, a table in the garden -but how disappointing was the pizza - over-thick dough and lumpily cut veg - very unappealing.

This was perhaps the worst "Italian" meal we have ever tasted! ( Could NOT EAT it all! ) My Tricoloure vegetarian Pizza consisted of a huge pile of lettuce with a few red pepper strips and a few artichoke strips. It was horrible, as was my husband's dish of pasta with pepper and garlic, which was so dry and tasteless... More

Le Forum is beautifully situated in a garden with a nice laid back feeling. The service is nice and attentive and the restaurant used to have the very best pizzas in the region. However this time something horrible had happened to the dough – instead of providing the thin and crisp base of pizza, it was heavy, doughy and felt... More

My friends and I stumbled upon this place going for an evening walk and we fell in love! The atmosphere is relaxing, the food is amazing, all of the staff is very friendly and we went back multiple times! Unfortunately, we found out the hard way that it's not open every night. But it was an end of the week... More

I still love having dinner or lunch at the Forum, especially during the summer months when you can sit outside on the grass and they open early and on Sundays, but really, it's a year-round favourite. Unfortunately, their fabulous pizzaiola left, and while the pizzas are still delicious, thanks mostly to their unusual combination of toppings, the crust isn't always... More

Good honest food, nice surroundings. 3rd time we have eaten here in 3 years. We will certainly go back. Great to unwind after a 4 hour drive with a bottle of wine in the restaurant garden. Thoroughly recommended.

Le Forum was a little tricky to find as maps show it on the main ringroad of Cluny but it is in fact just over a bridge heading away from the town centre, so a little more signage would help. However, perhaps they're not worried because they are pretty busy and it seemed when we were there on a Tuesday... More

Authentic pizza is a rarity in France, and we are lucky enough in the Maconnais/Clunysois to have Le Forum, which serves up some of the best pizza I've ever had in France. I have brought several Italian friends here, and they agreed that the crust is among the best they've ever had outside Italy. While the crust is what is... More

We have eaten here twice now and greatly enjoyed the pizzas which I think are some of the best I have had in France. It is a small restaurant but relaxed and friendly and the owner welcomes you personally. The food is great and the prices are very reasonble. We went in winter but we are looking forward to going...
