BASE is starting a brand new series of blogs, aimed at specifically at our guests.

These fun feature pieces will highlight our recommendations from Liverpool’s many great attractions to those who may not be familiar with the local area.

Whether you’re in need of a great place to dine out in the city centre or feel like stepping out of your comfort zone, we will point you in the right direction.

And what better way to start then with Italian food!

Everyone likes Italian food and there are few better at the art than our neighbours, il Forno.

il Forno - Italian Restaurant - Liverpool City Centre

Combining generations of Italian tradition with his own unique flair, Head chef Paolo Cillo brings a true taste of Italy to Liverpool.

Together with his brother, Donato, the pair masterfully fuse skill and passion to serve up traditional flavours that ooze authenticity to hordes of hungry customers each week. This is a family that lives and breathes Italian cuisine.

The Cillo’s personally source the finest products from their Italian roots, from award-winning olive oil to the traditional flour that creates il Forno’s famous wood-fire pizzas.

Expect the best Italian ingredients, prepared by experienced Italian chefs, in a true Italian kitchen – with enough heart and soul to feed Italy.

In addition, the restaurant has received numerous national accolades over the past decade – from ‘Best Pizza’ at the 2015 English Italian Awards to being named one of the country’s top Italian restaurants by The Sunday Times. il Forno promises good food and it delivers on that promise!
