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.

The staff and service was very friendly and there was a good atmosphere. However the food was just ok....we had the seafood and pasta and it arrived warm rather than appearing fresh off the pan hot or hotter at least..the pasta was undercooked (not al dente)...my starter of.beetroot goats cheese was very nice..my friends cannelonni was also he said dry and underwhelming...I had the tirrimiasu and it was ok..are these bought in or homemade ??....As I said it's a pity because grest atmosphere and friendly staff ...

Thank you for a lovely pre-gig meal. The food was gorgeous and the staff were really welcoming. Gorgeous bruschetta and pizza in particular.

Had high expectations of the pizza as I had heard great reports. Starters were all excellent but all pizzas were very soggy - as if oven was not hot enough when cooking

Unfortunately I didn’t like my pizza as the mozzarella was a bit runny and watery and when I asked for it to be cooked for another minute or so the chef said it would make the mozzarella stringy. Which I didn’t mind. I waited another 15-20 mins and got a new pizza but it was the same. Sorry I wasn’t a fan. My sisters who were with me didn’t like the pizzas either. Too watery / mozzarella not cooked

Capers used to be available to add as a topping, which I miss! Other than that, absolutely perfect!

The food was amazing, the pizza was literally like a pillow on a plate!! Service was a bit slow we had to ask for water from 3 different waiters before it came but it was a very busy Friday night over Christmas. Will definately be back!
