About Forno 500
Forno500 commissioned Mr Ferrera to fly from Naples with his team of Artisans to build his very first Neapolitan fixed oven in Dublin, using old world Neapolitan techniques. He first started building ovens for his local pizzerias with his grandfather when he was just 13 years old and we are proud to host such craftsmanship in Dublin creating the same oaky char that can be found in the best street pizzerias of Naples.
While our pizza is certainly the draw here, supporting dishes such as pasta are also worth a detour:
Be it beautiful Neapolitan pizza or fresh Wicklow farm pasta.
Forno500 is happiness on a plate.
Fabulous food as always. We got the Early Bird Pre-Show Menu and it was great value for money with super efficient service from very friendly staff.
Really nice food but evening was ruined with the addition of the rat on the floor running around. Unfortunate as was having a lovely time but couldn’t stay as threatened by rat
Food was great, you could really taste the ingredients. Service however was a bit slow at the start but definitely picked up towards the end. Will definitely come back in the near future
Was eager to visit for a nice wood oven pizza experience and had carefully chosen this restaurant. Was disappointed upon arrival to be told after seating, that they only offered a fixed price 3 course meal for that day. We left. Suggestion: establishment should advise clients upon making reservation when there is a forced fixed price menu.
We were treated to excellent pizza, wine and tiramisu and terrific service!
Had a table booked on new years eve very busy but the staff were excellent. Food was great at a very reasonable price. Will definitely go back :)
Authentic Italian resturaunt.
A very warm welcome and great service. The calamari and vegetable fritti is a delicious starter (just be careful of the chili, which is VERY hot). Great pizza with a wonderful crust.
We arrived with a booking on a very busy evening. Great pizzas, friendly staff and a buzzy atmosphere.
Lovely restaurant - great food - had a lovely time
Now our favourite Italian restaurant in Dublin city centre. Food is full of flavour. Service is warm and friendly and efficient. Good choice of wines. Excellent value for money. Highly recommended
We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. I was there with 2 daughters and two of their friends. The loved every part of the experience, they had been in Forno before and this visit copper fastened their love for the place. Davidoc
Great service, lovely wine and a good atmosphere. The food however was disappointing. The canelloni was bland and calamari was too chewy. The pizza base was great but the toppings were again quite bland.
Disappointed none of the wine left we wanted
Delicious pizza! Unfortunately we wanted to take the rest to go and would’ve have happily boxed It ourselves but our waiter took it and boxed it and gave us the incorrect pizza back and as the table next to us discovered this too we had theirs but they didn’t have ours so the pizza we got was tuna and as we could not eat fish this was no good, when asked if they could find our pizza we were told no but we could keep the incorrect one. This was no good to us so he took it. This then left us without the rest of our pizza and we were not compensated for such... so in all I paid for a pizza and only got part of it and the other part given to someone else. Maybe needs a bit more work in organization as there were three of us given the wrong pizza back. Still great pizza, just next time will insist on boxing my own.
Food is outstanding. Best Italian in Dublin
Food great service was brutal. Had a meal this evening that started and ended poorly. The girl serving us was not to standard(we sat upstairs). No glasses for our water when the water arrived. No cutlery when starters arrived and had to wait for same which arrived with wet napkins. Asked the girl 2 times for the bill while we watched others get theirs off the male waiters straight away. Finally asked a male waiter for the bill and he produced straight away. When the bill arrived we realised it was wrong as the girl never took off the sparkling water we ordered and subsequently cancelled. The night was saved by the male waiters who came to the rescue after the female paid zero attention to what her job was. The same girl waited for us a few months ago and we have no intent in returning as the price does not match up to the service. And before you say, I know its christmas but it wasnt that busy. Also seen the family beside is have issues with the service(or lack of)
The food and atmosphere in Forno 500 was amazing. The pizza was the best I’ve ever had in Ireland. We were on our honeymoon this June in Italy and the pizza in Forno 500 was just as good as what we had in Italy. I would definitely recommend this amazing place to anyone
A fantastic experience from start to finish- thank you!
Excellent food and service - can’t wait to go back
We were not advised when booking that there was a 3 course set menu. This made the whole experience very expensive. A two course option would have been a good idea. Thanks
Upstairs room is very noisy and not an enjoyable atmosphere. Wait for menu after seating was long and prices were a lot compared to others high qualities pizzerias in the area
