The first thing you will be charmed by is the internal design of the building. An old brick kiln renovated to a restaurant-pizzeria. There's a immense choice of kinds of pizzas and if you prefer fish, meat or first courses so....you are in the right place! I suggest at least 2 visits here, one for pizzas and one for restaurant...

I was brought here for lunch by the company I was delivering some training for. It was originally used for making bricks, and there are quite a few photos decorating the curved brick walls, of pots being made too. The tables are all laid out within the old brick arches, but clever use of lighting, plants and some careful renovation... More

When driving down the road, if this place doesn't catch your attention, get glasses! It was Saturday night and after two places had already turned us away for no reservations, I called them and they told us we could be sat immediately. This place is HUGE! So much stuff to look at - when you walk in, it's like sensory... More

Been there for lunch many times. Big space but very warm and familiar. There is huge choice in terms of food (branzino all'amalfitana is delicious): that's making La fornace much more than a Pizzeria. People nice, baths clean. Good choice if you are closeby.

I love the atmosphere at this restaurant and some of the food, but the value and the technical preparation of several menu items are just awful. I try to avoid this restaurant if i can. If i do go there because it is a pretty cool spot, there are specific items i will order (pizza or steak).
