We love Al Forno! Fantastic pizzas and pastas, friendly efficient staff, well priced wine and authentic Italian management make this a brilliant place for dinner on the east coast.

There were 4 of us and we were there for dinner. The pasta (we had the spaghetti vongole and spaghetti with crayfish) was good and worth the price. The pizza (Capriciosa and Tropical) wasn't as good - there was too much dough, it was not crispy but it was dry. The mushrooms were chewy and the prosciutto didn't seem right.... More

The new Sunday brunch at Al Forno is definitely worth a visit. Not only were the staff welcoming and attentive throughout, the food was delicious and the price made it excellent value for money. There was an ample selection of antipasti, meat and fish, cheese and cold meats, pasta, pizzas (or course) and desserts. My prosecco glass was refilled frequently,... More

We visited on a Saturday night and we got quickly seated. first visit and the menu seemed fairly ordinary and rustic Italian. good to see many Italians eating here as well and an Italian chef/owner. service was swift until we had ordered our food and drinks but quickly downhill from there. Our starters came 15 minutes apart, wine arrived after... More

When we walked into this place everything seemed wonderful this old east coast landmark has the look of an Italian tavern, the service was friendly, when the food came the portions were hearty, the food looked good but right from the appetizer to the soup, the pizza and the pasta nothing had flavor or character, it was all limp!

We made a reservation for eight people, and the restaurant accepted it without issue. We ordered a variety of salads, pastas, and pizzas. All were very goood. There was a reasonable corking fee for the drink we brought to celebrate. The service was above average, and the waiters struck the right balance between missing and hovering. It is a very... More

I've been patronizing this restaurant for many years and I've never written any review till now. Why? Well, I just got back from a 10 days Italy trip and I've to say, this place is as good as being in Italy itself. Perhaps there may be differing opinions and views about this place but personally, this place really serves awesome... More

Since we discover this place we were literally addict to spend our Saturday dinner there. The unforgettable mozzarella fresh and tasty like the one at home. The excellent pizza. We were there more than 9 times and always was a good reason to be back again. Really trustworthy Italian restaurant.

A really fantastic Italian restaurant with the best pizza in Singapore. Had a great time the first visit where the owner was serving and engaging with patrons however, the second time when we went at lunch time, we found the food to be excellent but the staff serving us were rude and inconsiderate and we got the impression that they...

If I may 'dare say' this restaurant is our 'treasure' of the East. A Great Neighbourhood Gem. I am a very Big Fan of this restaurant and this Review is long Overdue.
