Our escape from home dinners

We also come back here once in a while. Whenever we do not want to make dinner at home we go to Al Forno to have our 'second home' dinner :) Food is always good, fresh and delicious. Its always busy (what I think is a good sign). Our children like to go there too, because they like the food... read more

Dependable Italian restaurant in the east. No surprise they've been there for so long after other restaurants just come and go. :)

I was there to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was very busy and crowded when i reached the place. I thought the food should be excellent. However i found that the taste is not to my liking, they are all a bit plain. Normally Italian restaurant provided an entree with bread and olive oil or butter, but i did not... More

This used to be one popular choice for good Italian pizza and pasta, but it seems to have lost its shine. Was there for lunch and had purposely made a reservation thinking that it'll be hard to get one on the eve of a public holiday. I was quite surprised to find ourselves the only diners there for at least... More

I am a big fan of Al Forno. Their oven seems to produce the best pizzas I have tasted in Singapore. There's a great selection too. Some of the pasta dishes are not quite as good and the wine selection is ok but not as great as it is at some other restaurants. The ambience is great and it has... More

We have now been here a few times. The service is generally good and the food is great! The second time we are here the service was poor with one of our starters arriving after the main course and of course we mentioned this to them. There had been problems in the kitchen. They apologised and unexpectedly we were given... More

They make some of the best pizza in town, but getting extremely disappointed with delayed deliveries. They promise to deliver within 1.5hrs, which is already a long time for pizza delivery to a location only 10-15mins away. It's taking over 2 hours before it actually shows up. at times even cold. The pizzas have not gotten smaller as well, which... More
