WE go there regularly on a Friday evening as we can share a large pizza ( enough for two ) and although not the cheapest in town, all their food is way above average and the service is to match.

Al Forno is an authentic Italian restaurant, with wonderful food, and a lovely view across the bay. Their pizza's are really good, with lovely wood fired crispy base. It is lways nice to sit on their terrace on a sunny afternoon with a glass of wine, and enjoy a good meal with friends.

The service is poor, the decor is outdated and the food, well, it's definitely not worth the money. Which is expensive. I can make a better dish at home which i recommend you do instead of frequenting this restaurant. And my beer was warm. Need i say any more.

Ate here twice. Staff are very attentive and efficient. Pizzas are very tasty. Can get quite busy. There is also a covered outdoor area overlooking the bay if you prefer to sit outside.

The pizzas are first class and the view of the sunset cannot be beaten. A beer with a pizza in the evening is sooo relaxing. It is not cheap - you can get a steak at Bens on the Strand for similar money - but overall a sundowner at al Fornos is not be missed.
