Phnom Penh has many Western restaurants to choose from, with great chefs and cuisines imported from around the world. Il Forno should be your destination if you are craving authentic Italian food. The reason we like this restaurant so much is all the recipes are still the same of those of the owner’s 97 year-old grandmother, who in his words “rocked her kitchen back in Italy.” Pasta is made fresh daily, and all the ingredients – except for produce – are sourced from Italy. The menu includes classics like pizza, cold cuts, and a very large selection of pastas, with some more experimental weekly specials. Il Forno’s platters – cheese, charcuterie, and seafood – are great for sharing or nibbling on while sipping an Italian wine or aperitif at their upstairs bar. Stop by on Fridays to enjoy “THE G&T night” special, which offers free nibbles and pizza while you relax with a special Gin & Tonic. They can even deliver to you, hotel rooms included, seven days a week!
