Read so much about the pizza and coming from the New York Area I had to try it. The place is hidden and you may have to ask direction but its worth the trip. We ordered the pizza with everything for $10.00 and watch the ladies at work. It took about 15 minutes and was cooked to perfection, lightly brown,... More

I originally chose this restaurant because it was one of the few places open in the late afternoon when I was looking for a late lunch/early dinner. I was pleasantly surprised at how good the pizza was, and you can watch them prepare it and then bake it in the brick oven right in front of you. The restaurant is... More

Was a quite Thursday in the off season when we went so no trouble getting in! Loved the pizza. Wood fired oven is the only way to go for a good pie. Good service. We had the pepperoni and our friends had the combo. I thought the simpler the better, lets the crust and sauce really stand out. Wonderful!

We arrived by water taxi to Al Forno. My goodness the Panamanian dishes were exquisite. Meals for the evening were offered on a chalkboard which attests to its very fresh and fine quality meals. Family friendly and great for large groups. I could easily see a reunion venue here. Thank you for the memeories!

Me and my husband split the $9 pizza and were full. I haven't had pizza this good since I was in Italy. It's the thin crust traditional style cooked in a wood fired brick oven. Amazing!!!!!! Not the most comfortable seats but there aren't many restaurants in Bocas that do...lol Our Italian friend from Genoa ordered the carbonara pasta. It... More

We had very good pizza and salads. Large portions and friendly service. It is outside and has the brick oven cooked pizza. Very quick service. Will eat there again.

My daughter is 8 years old and fan of Italian food. Probably the best pizza ever. Service is not that good but the food compensates everything

We had a delicious dinner at Forna a Legna tonight. It is located about halfway between our hotel and the Pantheon. We had had enough pasta and pizza and opted for a second course of veal scaloppine limon and a veal scaloppine with red sauce. The service was very good and the wait staff was patient with americans. Almost all... More
