Ok Ok Cafe Proper Italian food but very costly (Rs 590 pasta only) Taste is also OK Way of service is not good. Even they did not serve water. Location is very good... I will not visit again

I had the best pizza ever at Il forno. Sitting out in the open with a view of the snow capped mountains, the sweet smell of wood in the air. I wish they had a pepperoni pizza on the menu , though the ham and...cheese I had was delicious as well. Also had a plum juice and the honey ginger tea. both very good!More

I visited Il Forno with friends for authentic Italian food, in the month of October. We ordered Mashroom Pizza, Coffee and Honey ginger tea. To our surprise the Pizza was amazing and so was the Coffee & Tea. Freshly made Pizza in woodfire just melted...in the mouth dancing with the palate!!😋😋😋 You can really experience the foodgasm !! Astounding service and awesome hospitality by the lovely pleasant Owner 😍!! I strongly recommend Il Forno to all the travellers who would love to explore authentic Italian food during Manali trip. Looking forward to visit again soon.....In love with the beautiful natural aura of this small cafe amidst this beautiful valley ❤❤😇😇More

Matching the reputation it carries, we had a mouthwatering,well prepared and tasteful Pizza baked on a festival wood oven. Our hosts were also extremely nice and welcoming which enrichened the experience. Must place to unwind, to enjoy the food in a sun baked pristine environment...with a lovely view of the mountains.More

This is a place on the Hadimba temple road and has an excellent outdoor sitting area and an equally cozy interior sitting. We had lunch at this place and since it was raining when we arrived, we dined in the indoor section. We ordered a...pizza and an escalope. Whereas the pizza was good, the same cannot be said about the escalope since it was overflowing with olive oil and herbs (probably rosemary). Food prices are reasonable and this place deserves to be checked out if you are in Manali.More

Their wood fire oven pizzas are divine as are their pasta and baked dishes. Their spaghetti marinara is to die for! Fabulous views of the valley. Asmita does a great job of running Il Forno!

Outdoor seating is perfect for Manali weather. Is a quiet &a charming place. In fact my son even played his guitar and sang songs. No tourist crowd also. Their veg pizza is the best. It's how an authentic pizza should be. The soups are also...superbly done. However chicken lasagne was pretty ordinary. And Tiramisu was not Tiramisu at all. Expected better quality stuff from them. But go their for their pizzas and the charming seating !More

Nothing beats IL forno when it comes to some delicious Italian food. Pizzas are amazing, lasagna is best in town, and the desserts are world class. I had the peperoni pizza today and my mind was blown by the quality of the ingredients. Must try...the fiammetta too. Amazing place !More
