Smedasundet 91, Haugesund, Norway, 5527

Serves meat, vegan options available. Italian restaurant that imports ingredients from Italy. "Il Forno" means oven, and the kitchen bakes dishes in a unique stone oven. Has a few lacto-vegetarian salads, pasta, a vegetable soup, and pizza; a few items can be made vegan on request. Pesto is supposed to be vegan but do ask. Open Mon-Thu 2:00pm-11:00pm, Fri-Sat 2:00pm-1:00am, Sun 2:00pm-11:00pm.

Lovely Food - Edit

Nice, fresh food with big portions. The pesto DOES have cheese in but the pasta vegetariana is vegan and the salad verde was massive, fresh and crispy with lots of peppers, tomatoes etc.

would go back for the armosphere, not the food - Edit

The staff made a huge effort to accommodate me as a vegan but unfortunately they could NOT seem to understand the difference between vegan and organic. I spoke to two different waiters and the manager and they kept bringing out boxes of organic cheese and butter and didn't understand why that wasn't vegan, even after I explained it thoroughly. They insisted I have an omelette, that they would make special for me, for example. Finally I managed to have them conjure up some whole wheat bread, vegan bruschetta, pesto and gluten free pasta with tomato sauce and vegetables. It was alright but not amazing and considering the struggle required to order it I wouldn't go back unless a social gathering required it. The atmosphere, however, is great with several fireplaces and outdoor seating.

Pros: atmosphere, staff that means well

Cons: not educated in veganism, difficult to order vegan options
