About Il Forno Pizzeria

When in Brisbane’s suburb of Sandgate and hunger strikes, make your way down Third Avenue to discover il Forno Pizzeria. Take a seat kerb side at low set tables on one of the bar stools as you enjoy the evening breeze, or head inside to find a cosy dining room styled with red signature walls and comfortable boxed bench seating, creating an intimate atmosphere to enjoy quality Italian food with family and friends. All the pizzas served here are made in a wood-fired oven, creating an authentically chewy, yet crispy base, with topping choices like crispy and shredded duck, Hoisin sauce and mozzarella, topped with fresh spring onion and cucumber. Perhaps opt for beef lasagne just like Nonna makes with salad garnish, before a dolci of velvety vanilla bean panna cotta and mixed berry compote.

A well loved local pizzeria
I love a good local business and Il Forno is one of my favourites. Quality food and good service makes this little restaurant a standout in our community. The menu is uncomplicated and well priced, the duck and hoisin pizza being a family favourite. Definitely worth the drive if you aren’t a local.


So good.....
A great little restaurant in Sandgate. Fills up quickly on the weekends, so I suggest you make a booking. Authentic Italian style pizzas with loads of beers choices to compliment. The pizzas are so good, thin base, good amount of deliciously fresh toppings and quality mozzarella. Delicious.


Authentic pizzas full of flavour
Love coming to this quaint restaurant. Worth the drive -it never disappoints. Love the Moroccan Beef and Crispy Duck and the specials pizza is always a nice surprise - full of flavour with a perfect crust The house red is also a delicious compliment. Leave room for the chocolate dessert pizza ??


Awesome food and service
We ordered the Moroccan Beef and Arrabiatta, both Pizza’s were an outstanding taste. The service was courteous and friendly, and the range of beers was astounding, the Beer from Boston was full of flavour.


Best pizza place in Brisbane... Bar none!
