ABOUT IL FORNO
Il Forno means ‘the oven’ in Italian and is symbolic of what this family restaurant is aiming to achieve — to be a melting pot of all things Australian and Italian.
Owners Nazzareno Cugliari and his wife Kristina are proud of their Italian heritage, with both sets of parents migrating from Sicily and Calabria in the early 50s and 60s.
They brought with them a rich tradition of Italian culture and cooking, which has been passed onto both Naz and Kristina. They recently travelled to Southern Italy and embarked on an incredible journey of discovery, paying particular attention to his own family’s history and the flavours of the food he happily devoured!
Il Forno is Naz’s tribute to his rich Italian culture and history — both the ambiance and food aim to take you on a journey back to Italy, as well as celebrating the creative and modern touches that keep the menu exciting and flavoursome. At Il Forno we like to keep our menu up to date with delicious new seasonal dishes and special that change every month.
Open 6 days: Tues to Sat 5pm – 10pm and Sunday 5pm – 9pm
