Hands down the best Italian place in Manali. It is very near to hamdiba devi temple. Menu is short and preparations are very authentic. They serve Pizzas, Pastas, Lasagna, and few other items. Outdoor seating is recommended as it has great views of the valley...below. Service is reasonably fast and the place has a lot of parking space. I tried veg extravaganza pizza and masala tea. Pricing is on higher side.More

We accidently found this place for lunch on our first day in Manali and ordered the salads. This was a mix of salad and cold cooked vegetables drizzled in balsamic vinegar and pesto. We both agreed this was one of the best salads we had...eaten. Highly recommendedMore

Food is average, they don't serve sauce And water even. If some one can pay for menu cost, they can pay for bottle charges as much they demand. Not recommended

I had the best pizza ever at Il forno. Sitting out in the open with a view of the snow capped mountains, the sweet smell of wood in the air. I wish they had a pepperoni pizza on the menu , though the ham and...cheese I had was delicious as well. Also had a plum juice and the honey ginger tea. both very good!More

I visited Il Forno with friends for authentic Italian food, in the month of October. We ordered Mashroom Pizza, Coffee and Honey ginger tea. To our surprise the Pizza was amazing and so was the Coffee & Tea. Freshly made Pizza in woodfire just melted...in the mouth dancing with the palate!!😋😋😋 You can really experience the foodgasm !! Astounding service and awesome hospitality by the lovely pleasant Owner 😍!! I strongly recommend Il Forno to all the travellers who would love to explore authentic Italian food during Manali trip. Looking forward to visit again soon.....In love with the beautiful natural aura of this small cafe amidst this beautiful valley ❤❤😇😇More

Matching the reputation it carries, we had a mouthwatering,well prepared and tasteful Pizza baked on a festival wood oven. Our hosts were also extremely nice and welcoming which enrichened the experience. Must place to unwind, to enjoy the food in a sun baked pristine environment...with a lovely view of the mountains.More

This is a place on the Hadimba temple road and has an excellent outdoor sitting area and an equally cozy interior sitting. We had lunch at this place and since it was raining when we arrived, we dined in the indoor section. We ordered a...pizza and an escalope. Whereas the pizza was good, the same cannot be said about the escalope since it was overflowing with olive oil and herbs (probably rosemary). Food prices are reasonable and this place deserves to be checked out if you are in Manali.More
