Amazing and very special! The food is very authentic. The owner has the ingredients imported from Italy, the best Italian food I have ever had. It’s in the heart of the town, so that locals can appreciate such fine cuisine. I was very fortunate to be recommended Il Forno by another restaurant no less. Leo… Thank you so much for giving me the opportunity to eat at such a wonderful place! Can’t wait to visit Cabo again just to see Luigi (the owner) and Enrique (our server). Wonderful people, wonderful atmosphere, and absolutely wonderful food! Will be back any chance I get. They don’t make Italian food like that in the states.

    Pensaba que era un buen lugar para festejar mi aniversario de casados, pero no al parecer nadie sabía de la reservación, ni mucho menos de los comentarios que puse en ella. Desde que llegamos ni te preguntan si tienes reserva y te asignan una mesa x, cuando les dije que habia hecho mi reserva con tiempo y les di el numero de la misma, me reubicaron de mesa y me asignaron una mejor. la comida bien, los precios caros para lo que fue, creo que fue una mala eleccion.

    Spouse got the spinach ravioli and really liked it. I got the chicken parm. Chick parm was good with a really thick generous portion. The accompanying linguini was extremely salty. Overall decent food. But the linguini set a bad taste

    All of the great reviews on OpenTable are 100% accurate and the few bad reviews are 100% BS. Don’t let the spartan decor fool you….the food and the service is exceptional. The gnocchi is the best I’ve ever had anywhere! mussels appetizer is supreme! The cocktails were extremely well crafted. Do not miss the Mexican coffee presentation!

    El servicio es bueno el detalle del globo de cumpleaños y el postre un acierto.. solo un detalle mi esposa es alergica al cafe ....el postre es tiramisu ...pero un gran detalle sentimos que los precios estan elevados para locales. Los precios den una entrada son iguales a los del plato fuerte ....el pan esta bueno pero se te antoja el pan con ajo en un restaurante italiano y lo cobras de entrada ...no good ....me recuerdo antes daban la bruschetta de entrada de cortesia estos detalles hacen la diferencia, en general el servicio y la comida es muy buena.

    Another fabulous night at Il Forno! We’ve tried so many places to eat in Cabo and Il Forno remains number one on our list. The burratta can’t be beat, and the fettuccine Alfredo is the best ever! We also love the lasagna, shrimp with pink sauce, spinach ravioli and pizza. If only we could eat here every day! The service is always top notch - last night Carlos and Daniel took great care of us, along with the rest of the staff. And Mateo is fantastico too!

    Beginning with the greeting as we arrived it was a completely wonderful experience. I had the linguine with veal meat balls and a Caesar salad. Both were excellent. The best was the profiteroles for dessert. Wow!!! Can’t wait for our next visit.

    Anniversary dinner. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and provided a good service. It started from valet staff (Salvatore) to Enrique our server. We ordered an appetizer (beef carpaccio) which was delicious. The wine that we wanted was not available but yet it was on their wine list. We ended up with a bottle of white wine that was from Italy. It was okay and overpriced (1200 MXN) For our main entry, I have ordered Risotto Milanese with shrimp, boy it was too salty which I did not finished. Thanks God for some bread it helped the saltiness of the main dish. My husband has the frutti de Mare with spaghetti. He said that the sauce was so sour. Then we have creme brulee for dessert, creme was a bit runny..This is actually our second dinner on this restaurant. The first time was a better experience. Are we coming back for next time, probably not.

    We had a birthday celebration at the restaurant and it was excellent. Great service (not rushed), great food, good appetizers, good desserts and good wine/drinks. Not cheap but we felt we got what we paid for. Good experience overall. We ate ribeye steak, garlic shrimp, pizza, spaghetti Classico, And another shrimp/pasta dish. We had multiple chocolate lava cake, and tiramisu. It has great music, fun interior and good ambiance. It is a place we usually go to at least once when we are in Cabo San Lucas.
