We had a late plain to Karmøy and was in Haugesund and ready to eat closer to 22:00. We was six people and we all know from experience that getting good service and not being rushed when eating can be a problem. But I was pleasantly surprised! None of us felt rushed. The waitress was placenta, even asked if we... More

Had a nice dinner at this restaurant. Carpatchio as starter and a filet a la crema as main. Got a good chees platter as dessert. Would recomend this place AS good food for your money.

It is a cozy restaurant just by the sea with good food and decent prices. Have only eaten their pizzas. Will be going back!

Heard that this was THE place to go when getting an italian pizza.. Well, the pizza i ordered was cold then i got it, and the pizza was soft and soggy. Not the best experience to be honest...

The pizza at this restaurant is fantastic, thin and crispy. However, if you like it spicy you'd better ask for extra chili because it isn't very hot! The pasta is served al dente which is also the Italian way.

Very cousy restaurant! Very nice atmosphere, music, fireplace...most of the times I was satisfied with the food (fresh ingredients, well looking, tasty, very good desserts), but two times it was simply too salty 😣 (I am the person who likes salt). I couldn't finish my meal, same my boyfriend. The most sad it was his birthday. Anyway, I will come... More

I prefer my pizza to be thin, and I prefer my pasta to be thick. I have dined at Il Forno twice, and I liked it. You don´t have to wait for ages to get you food or drinks. If we look at the quality of the food, and compare it with the price you pay, I have to recommend... More

The restaurant is located on the quayside, there are many other places along this area. There are seats both in and outside, they have a retractle roof on the outside so it means that you can be outside whatever the weather. My family and I really enjoyed the visit, always good to see my 10 year-old son with an empty... More

Expensive like most of the restaurants in Norway. The food was nice but the waiter needs to learn be kind. Service very slow.
