Il Forno definitely has a nice view from its balcony, and i'd recommend going there for dinner one of the nights simply for the view. The food, although wasn't great, but wasn't bad either.

Il Forno looks out over the Leh main square or market, as they call it. Now that the 'roofs' of other places have become crowded with cafes and eateries, this Roof Top is more like a 'view into other rooftops !!'. A certain selection of food is good ....the rest of it is like punjabi style masala-rich. Oh yes, for... More

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.

went here with a group for pizza and pasta, pizza was OK but pasta is terrible. not real pasta but chow mein type noodles, everything came out in a small gooey mess. Price is pretty high also.

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
