The food was very average, We had calamari as starter and they were nice enough. We all had pizza and, although there was nothing particularly wrong with it, it didn't meet what I would regard as authentic Italian pizza standards. The service was very slow, we had to ask a couple of times for the table to be wiped and... More

Sat upstairs on a table for 8 and food was ok but nothing special. No atmosphere upstairs and service a bit hit and miss would not rush back as so many other places to eat in Wimbledon. Bit disappointed as know friends have had a nice meal there.

My wife and I live outside London and manage to visit our two sons and their spouses (who live in Wimbledon) once every couple of months. We've always made a point of having a meal at Al Forno's as we enjoyed the atmosphere, the food and the good service. Back in June we were given a table in the outside... More

The restaurant was booked for my birthday meal by someone who had not been there either, so we were all going in blind. We'd booked for 10 but they didn't bat an eyelid when 11 of us showed up. The atmosphere throughout our meal ( 8 p.m. till close) was fantastic. Seems like quite a few people choose to spend... More

3 of us turned up about 2.40 in the afternoon. Having spotted the outdoor terrace be decked by hanging baskets across the road from the New Wimbledon Theatre. We were told we could have an outside table but warned the kitchen was closing at 3pm. We opted to stay and all ordered pasta dishes off the menu . The portions... More

Family run restaurant, people line up on the door at peak-time but they will always find you a table. The service is rustic Italian (they may should across the room) but this always adds to the experience. The food is simple but very tasty as Italian food should be. What really makes this restaurant is the buzzing atmosphere. On top... More

Food was ok and we did not try their pizzas which looked good. Bread basket of homemade (?) bread a shame. Tiramisu excellent. So order carefully.

Second visit to this restaurant first with group of friends second with my two young sons and they always seem busy. Excellent quality pizza sons loved it but had to get them to share a small as a small size was sufficient for me on my own. Traditional stone baked pizza.

Al Forno is situated in the road opposite Wimbledon Theatre and is possibly one of the best Italian restaurants in London. The food is always fresh and the service is exceptional. The owners, managers and chefs are Italian and can be described as stereo typically happy go lucky Italians. There is always a broad smile and genuine like from these... More

My husband and I ate here on Saturday evening after reading the reviews on trip advisor. Venue: A take on Italy, very rustic and charming ideal for couples on a date night or for a group of friends/family. It has quite a 'busy' atmosphere which adds to its character. Service: We arrived earlier than our booked table time of 7.15pm... More
