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)!

I can highly recommend this restaurant! I've been here now a few times for dinner and it was always a positive experience. The inside of the restaurant has a cozy italian atmosphere and the set-up outside during summer is even better. The food was each time amazing. The pizzas are thin and chrispy with a tasty generous toping - exactly... More

I highly recommend Il Forno Italiano! I went here with my husband, mom, and grandmother during our stay in Uppsala. The set-up outside is lovely, with patio seating on St Olofsgatan. We had chantarelle mushroom pasta (which I highly recommend), seafood pizza, and pasta milense. Everyone was very satisfied with their meals. We also had very good wine and beer... More

We sat outside on a warm summer night, and had some excellent food. My saltimbocca was wonderful, and was made, I think, in the old-fashioned, original style with lots of sage. It was accompanied by a very good risotto with vegetables. My companion liked her cannelloni with walnut-spiked tomato sauce. There is a decent wine list, and a few wines... More

Our first visit to Uppsala and although a quick visit was very impressed. Found this amazing Italian restaurant and the staff were so helpful and attentive. I had a linguine and they omitted the muscles for me and I had just the prawns and scallop...wonderful. My husband had a beef tagliatelle which was so good. The pizza looked amazing as... More
