Arrived at 1830 to a fairly quiet restaurant. Ordered pepperoni pizza and enjoyed it. The one thing I was disappointed about, was that I love pizza with a few anchovies on top. I asked for anchovies as an extra topping, but they had none. I was surprised by this. The pizza was still enjoyable and the staff very friendly. I ordered a medium pizza and was comfortably full after it.

The restaurant looks over a marina area, which is a very pleasant view.

An enjoyable pizza, but not quite the best. Hence four stars

We chose this restaurant initially because it was on the pier close to our hotel, and it had the most people inside compared to the other restaurants. If a restaurant is crowded it must be good, right? We made a good choice, and we would definitely eat there again. The food was tasty and served piping hot. We got two different pasta dishes and shared them, and we couldn't decide which we liked best. Several tables near us had pizza, and it looked delicious as well. The service was excellent, and the atmosphere was cozy on a snowing evening. The prices were reasonable for Norway and we felt like we got a great meal for the money.

This is a standard Italian restaurant offering standard Italian food and there is nothing out of the ordinary in the menu. This is usually not a negative aspect, however, the food was nothing more than average and they failed to make simple ingredients shine. The restaurant offers great atmosphere, although service was a bit slow. Still better than fast food though.

Il Forno is one of a string of restaurants along the waterfront in Haugesund. I'm sure it must be a lot of fun in the summer, as all the restaurants have an outdoor seating area, but even for January it was nice. Warm inside, nice fire burning.
The menu is nothing out of the ordinary, but the food is well prepared, served hot, and the portions are ample. A decent wine and beer list.
We stumbled upon this place when we arrived in town on Sunday evening - when many of the town's restaurants are closed, but we were very happy with the dinner.
