Il Forno is an Italian Restaurant and Woodfired Pizzeria in the heart of Tralee town. Owned by Tralee natives Mike and Ruth Moriarty, il Forno offers authentic Italian cuisine with a kitchen team from Naples, Italy.
Mike and Ruth have spent a long time planning the concept of Il Forno. Having travelled to Italy many times they fell in love with all things Italian, especially the food. Both Mike and Ruth love to cook and are self-confessed foodaholics.
They felt that nothing can compare to the authentic Neapolitian pizza cooked the traditional way, in a wood fired oven and longed to be able to get such an experience locally. Hence the idea was born. They sourced an Italian wood fired oven, Italian produce, beers and wine and most importantly two Italian chefs, both from Naples, in order to provide a real Italian experience in the heart of Tralee.
