    The staff were very friendly and the meal was outstanding. We had a lovely night out for 26th Valentines Day. This is our second visit to Il Forno. Thankyou

    This was a great experience for us as it was everything we were told about. We left feeling excited about returning to enjoy the food, the staff and the ambiance of Il FORNO. Thankyou for a gift voucher we would not have driven so far from home, but decided it was worth it.

    Food was delicious and service impeccable. We ordered a great zuppa di cozze & spaghetti a frutti di mare both were very tasty. Despite being a busy night service was very efficient.

    It's one of those places where the food is fine, service ok and then they smack a fee on your bill if you use your EFTPOS card (who doesn't these days!) So won't be back. Far better options in Hampton St.

About the restaurant

It’s Gettin’ Hot in Here

Why ‘the oven’? Because Il Forno deliciously melts Australian and Italian cuisine together. Owned by Nazzareno Cugliari and his wife Kristina, Il Forno in Hampton serves the kind of wholesome food you’ll want to savour—and keep coming back for. Reflecting their heritage in Sicily and Calabria, the menu is a tribute to Italian culture and cooking. You’ll be dreaming of the Italian landscape while licking your fingers at this elegant yet understated restaurant. The menu features many of the favourites you’d expect to see at a popular Italian joint—calamari fritti to start, mushroom and ricotta ravioli served with sage butter and black truffle oil—but it’s the preparation and passion that takes Il Forno’s food into the red hot zone. The handmade pastas absolutely sing—there’s even a pasta that’s shaped with a knitting needle—and the weekly specials are worth, well, coming in weekly for. Il Forno has a growing legion of loyal followers. Why not join it?

Best Dish: Wholemeal spaghetti tossed with fresh prawns, garlic, chilli, white wine, parsley and virgin olive oil
