Dined 12-12-2014 I was with a party of 20+ people,the works do! one of many such parties that were dining on the night, it seems to be a very popular venue, well located for the after dining nightlife. This Italian restaurant is very modern, it is anything but rustic, it is very spacious and clean, there is a spiral staircase... More

I went for the three course x-mas menu, and enjoyed the meal very much. Most people will find a course here. Italian and ala carte. Nice wine list, and a selection of lagers. Very friendly staff. Seemed a bit busy this night so a pack of football fans (as we were) could have bought more drinks if they were on... More

We have eaten here a few times and keep coming back because the food is excellent! Service is always a bit slow but yesterday was certainly a dissapointment. Booked a table for 9pm, come 9.25 we are still waiting to be seated and have only just been offered a drink. The maitre then asked a couple sat next to us... More

Visited with a group of friends last night and ate off the 'set menu' £29.99 for 3 courses. Great value and lots to choose from. The food was well presented, decent portions and very tasty. With it being full of Christmas party goers it was very rowdy but the waiters were attentive and service was quick and friendly. Would definitely... More

Overall a wonderful experience, from start to finish from the warm friendly welcome to the service. The food was exceptional with a variety of flavours and the desserts were delightful both in presentation and taste. Would certainly recommend giving this Italian restaurant a try it is a must when you visit Liverpool, couldn't ask for better. C.S

Went because one of our friends recommended Il Forno and we weren't disappointed. Food is very good and for an Italian really very reasonable. Good choice of wine, as well. The service was certainly good, although perhaps a bit fragmented as there isn't one waiter per table. Overall a very good experience and we booked to take our family there... More

There is much to recommend Il Forno, from the greeting upon arrival to paying the bill you are made to feel welcome. Somehow the noise of the restaurant works and creates an atmosphere of people enjoying themselves and the food.The menu has a good range of dishes that are not so common. The pizza oven deserves a mention. Deserts look... More

I, with others, have eaten here on a few occasions and the food was something special. It has a varied menu and caters for all tastes. I myself am not a pasta or pizza person but there is so much more to enjoy so I would go there every time. It is a great place for both couples and friends.

enjoy eating out and have heard good things about Il Forno on Duke Street. We weren't looking for a fine dining experience and it wasn't a special occasion otherwise we'd have booked The Art School. We booked a table for luncheon on Saturday 28th November 2014. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly by the Maitre D. One more step and... More
