We ate here on a Saturday evening in August. Starters of bruschetta classica and tiger prawns with garlic and chilli. The prawn starter was £9.25...for 3 prawns. This has chilli in it so I expected a bit of heat but there wasn't any until I suddenly got a blast of heat from a single bite halfway through eating it, seems... More

I last visited 3 years ago for an evening anniversary meal with my wife & loved it. Took the kids there today & they loved it too. Great pizzas but it would be a waste to go there only for that, my risotto was fantastic!

We have eaten at Il Forno for lots of family celebrations and the food, atmosphere and attentiveness of the staff is always excellent. We all had a really enjoyable night and will definitely be coming back again!

We really like Italian food and have tried most restaurants in Liverpool but this one definitely stands out as exceptional in all respects. It is immaculately clean, the service is very professional, the atmosphere is just right and the attention to detail is outstanding. It would be extremely difficult to find any area for improvement. Well worth a visit and... More

Went here mid week as recommended by The Nadler where we were staying. Only ordered main courses as we were just getting a quick bite to eat. Was with out doubt possibly the nicest pasta dish I have eaten at an Italian. I had the goats cheese and sun dried tomato ravioli. Perfection. Would visit again for more courses next... More

I made reservations on line for 4 of us to eat out on a Saturday. We got there a bit early and took advantage of the excellent cocktails on offer. The staff were attentive, caring and very helpful regarding our choices of foods and wines. The service was incredible and the food and deserts were GREAT. Believe me, I have... More

The food and service were very good and the prices were reasonable. I had a pizza that was far more authentic than your typical UK restaurant. My wife had lasagne that she said was very good. The chianti was good and sensibly priced. But the restaurant is huge and has little "Italian" atmosphere; it didn't help that it was almost... More

Went for a meal on a busy Saturday night with 4 friends. We hadn't booked and it was very busy. We were treated very well and the waiting team could not do enought for us. The speed of service was incredible - a well oiled machine! We had starters of calamari and bruschetta and a lovely, ice cold Pinot Grigio.... More

We had 9 of us visit last night, it was excellent, my lobster didn't have much meat, but it had loads of flavour. I also fell in love with the beautiful Italian waitress meeting and greeting. I will return, my Dad got the best Steak I have ever tasted, 65 quid, but wow, it was amazing.
