Il Forno, meaning 'the oven', was established in 1992 in the heart of the then quaint, untouched beach village that was Palm Cove. Over the years, Palm Cove has grown into the internationally sought after holiday destination that it is today. Il Forno, however, has strived to maintain its original charm and traditional authenticity.
There are many people who have contributed to making Il Forno what it is today. Our culinary and hospitality passion and experience has been part of our family background for generations and it continues to be passed on today.
At Il Forno we specialise in creating an authentic Italian atmosphere; where food and hospitality work in perfect harmony. Il Forno provides weekly food specials and the majority of our staff are multilingual, so our guests can feel right at home.
Our restaurant has a loyal local following, but caters predominantly to visitors of the region. We hope to see you soon, to have you enjoy our food, and to welcome you to our ever extending family!
If you have any questions, booking enquiries, menu queries, or just to say 'ciao', please feel free to contact us! Buon Appetito!
From your hosts, Nat & Kieran
