We have made several visits to Il Forno and this most recent visit did little to reverse our fairly negative earlier reviews. The problem here is not the food which is good, but the service which is slow and also often inaccurate - wrong side dishes brought so a delay with the main course cooling down! We also had to...

Not the very best of Uppsala, but sure worth a visit. Steaks nice, pasta pretty good maybe a bit too creamy and fat. The pizzas can be a bit boring also. Wine selection actually excellent.

Was here to celebrate my daughters 25th birthday. Had an antipasto as a starter and this wa svery good, I would though to have the cheese a bit more room temperatured. After that we all had chicken with papparedelle, the chicken was perfect but the papardelle was, as always, overcocked. But the taste were very fine.

This is one of Uppsala's better Italian restaurants, but at our last visit we were disappointed by the small servings. There was no bread served, no extra service, seats by a noisy kitchen, loud noise level generally. The pasta dishes were good, but we left the restaurant still feeling hungry. 800 kr for four people.

This was recommended by our hotel. We loved it when we walked in. Unfortunately my order was misunderstood. I wanted cannelloni and got ravioli with gargonzola sauce. No offer made to rectify and we did not press. Good news: I liked the ravioli. Still found it a bit annoying. My husband liked his spinach ravioli and we had good wine.

Me and my boyfriend went here for a date night and had booked a table at 8 o'clock. As we arrived there was a lot of people waiting to get their table even though they all had made reservations. We ended up waiting around 35 minutes just to get our table. Anyhow, that was the only bad thing with this... More

Nice italian restaurant situated near the mail building of Uppsala university. Though from outside it may seem a fancy place, the atmosphere inside is relaxing and friendly. The food was nice and tasty and so was the service too. We had two types of pasta, one pizza and two filetto all amarone which were great. TIP: ask the waiter for... More

Pricey and pretentious: my pizza was small and tasteless. My girlfriend ordered a plate of ravioli that the name "caserecci" suggested were home-made, they cost 179 kr. You don't fool me, I'm Italian and they're exactly the same you buy at the supermarket for 15 kr (the waiter even confirmed when we asked)!
