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.

This was a great find upon a recommendation from a time-share salesman (but that's another story!). It was within walking distance from our hotel, and was a pleasant surprise behind the facade on the street. It felt like a New Orleans courtyard with lots of vegetation and lights strung among the palm trees. There was a fire pit and a fountain. Very romantic with a great wine list. Our server was fantastic, and made some good recommendations. The food came out quickly and was piping hot. Unfortunately, we weren't all that hungry after a large and late lunch, so the delicious food was lost on us. However, they packaged it up for us and we thoroughly enjoyed it the next night in our hotel room. I would love to revisit this restaurant when we return to Cabo.

The food is absolutely fantastic. Best Italian outside of Italy. Huge menu. We had apps, main, and a bunch of deserts. Everyone absolutely loved it. We come here every year and it is so good.

Loved our meal! Garlic bread is to die for! If you like truffles, the gnocchi in truffle sauce is amazing. Very rich but delicious. The pizza is so good, especially with freshly grated Parmesan all over it! Love the new location with its outdoor ambience. Highly recommend.

Yes it's a good place to get a delicious pizza & the Panna Cotta was to die for. They don't need music but that's minor

We made a reservation via OpenTable — and actually changed it Online to an earlier time about two hours before the initial reservation. We received confirmation last for both the original and modified reservation.

We were shocked to show up and find the place was closed! They’re not even open for dinner on Sunday nights yet the OpenReservation sure showed the place as “Open!”

$20 later in taxi fare we ended up somewhere else!

Terrible system!!!!!!

You will not be disappointed. It’s a bit of an obscure location but what they lack in ambiance they make up for in service and incredible food. I will 100% be back next trip.
Pasta was cooked to perfection. Calamari was some of the best I’ve had. Caprese was what you hope for. Fish was the best we had on the trip. Pizza was incredible. Just go...thank me later. Ask for Charlie aka Carlos.

Definitivamente esperaba más..la ensalada de hojas verdes y el pan de ajo una delicia..la lasaña igual que todas..nada especial..mi esposa pidió fetucchines con salsa 4 quesos y el tamaño del plato era mucho menor que el de los otros comensales..el mesero insistió que ése era el estandar y claramente comparando los otros platillos que pasaron por nuestra mesa no es el estandar..el tiramisú una delicia.. no volvemos..esperaba algo mejor considerando un consumo promedio de 1350 pesos por 2 personas..Gracias!

A real find in Cabo. A little off the main areas in the Marina, but highly recommend giving it a try. Very authentic and tasty Italian food—possibly the best I have had. Service was excellent and very attentive.
