The squid ink pasta, seafood grill and the crab pasta were what both my wife and I had for dinner. The staff were attentive and because we had our booking at 6;45pm, and were accorded with the staff helping us taking a few photos for my wife's birthday album. We have been patronising quite a number of Italian eateries in... More

Just around the corner from our house, but that is not the reason we've come back there quite often... Very good and tasty food. Fast and friendly service. Offers takeout as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday Brunch @ Al Forno. Buffet style, great selection of dishes and SGD 70++ including wine etc can't be bad... (Non alcohol version for SGD 40++) Will definitely be going back!

I often visit Al Forno with my friends from Army every quarter in a year for their pizzas and pastas. It always meet my mark on great taste, good ambiance and friendly service. We always order proscuitto e funghi and spaghetti cicale and mixing other pizzas and pastas for variety. The place is always filled with couples, families and friends... More

I have been meaning to write this review for a long time, but forgot to do so as I have been away from Singapore, in Thailand. I must say that Al Forno serves absolutely the *best* pizza I have had in Singapore for many years, and have been there many times at week-ends to enjoy it! They use a traditional... More

I was here the first time in 1999 and it has hardly changed at all since then. That is a good thing!!! The pizza is among the best you can get in Singapore and solid craft. It is not cheap, but quality is not cheap in Singapore any more.

I had dinner at Al Forno this week with 8 colleagues. Overall the meal wasn't bad but I was expected much more based on the hype around this place. The pizzas were ok but the starters (salads, buffalo mozzarella, clams) were average. I'm going to give it another try but I'll stick to the pizzas. Will let you know how... More

Great food and generally good service. Have eaten here many times without an issue. Ate here last night for our wedding anniversary, food was good as ever though I was slightly disappointed having requested a special dessert for my wife for the occasion that it was just a candle pushed in a square of Tiramisu. Previously when requested the plate... More
