Do try their wood oven pizza, its their speciality, menu options were very less as they were close to shutdown as the end of season was near. But overall a good place to have food in the night with the view of leh palace.

We went there for lunch during our visit. It is right in the middle of the main market. It has wood fired pizza, which was good. The pasta and lasagne were also great.

We were there around 4pm. Limited choice with only some appetizer, pizZa & pasta available. So we ordered two pizza & an appetizer to snack. Even the drink served is limited choice, lucky the food tasted good to make up for the limited choice. It has an open air roof top to overlook Leh city or indoor if you prefer... More

Average pizza, really nothing special, I had the vegetarian one, lots of toppings, however taste of the pizza itself was just so so, maybe it needs more time for leavening? Go if you need a break from local food. The terrace overlooking the main bazaar street, as well as the excellent view of the Leh Palace are worth a good... More

Centrally located and easy to get to, and we sat outside on their rooftop with a nice view of the market, but the service & food was average (not bad, but nothing great to talk home about).

This place grabbed our attention as it is right in front of the walking plaza in Leh city. Its also a roof top restaurant so that makes it a bit special. We thought that it would be quite different to have our dinner here because it looked like it is offering some great ambience and italian food. However, our dreams... More

We'd read a number of reviews of this place and taken as a whole, they were varied and not all complimentary. However, one thing which was without doubt a winner is the position of 'Il Forno' - two floors up with a terrific view down the Leh main street - perfect for 'people watching', one of my favourite pastimes.
