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.

Lovely pizzas but the best bit of the meal was the carpaccio. Best one I've tasted! So lovely. All 5 of us enjoyed everything, a great mix of starters, mains and pizzas. Everyone left totally satisfied!

Great food, Staff and Service. The pizza here is the most delicious that I have had both inside and outside of Italy. The Beef Carpaccio is reason enough to return time and time again and with a good value wine list, and friendly staff, it made a great Birthday dinner venue.

I ordered the canelloni and wasn't good. The white sauce was thick (I could take it with a fork), wasn't hot and the taste wasn't so good. The pizza was really nice! I liked it.

Food was excellent, beautiful pizza. Lovely wine selection. Only gripe I have is that no one acknowledged us when we walked in, waiters kept passing us by but no one said "We will be with you in a minute" or that "the host was with someone and will be with us shortly". They left us standing there

Lovely restaurant, good food but the pizzas took forever to be served. Worth the wait but could've been quicker.

Our table was late which I'm sure is not something completely unexpected. To make the wait more palatable - I would suggest offering the folks a glass of Prosecco. I've seen it in other restaurants and I think you'll find a return on this investment. Overall, a wonderful authentic experience. Food and service were exceptional and I look forward to a repeat visit.

Saturday night of St Patrick's weekend was probably not the best night to try the restaurant. Formo 500 was highly recommended by our son. However, we ate upstairs where my husband found cold, I was OK. Starters, though dear were very nice. The pizzas were disappointing. The staff didn't engage with us and never asked until we were paying if we were enjoying our meal... Overall a disappointing experience.
