I've been here multiple times with friends, and it's become our go-to dinner choice. Be sure to get there early, as this place is always packed! So many pizza options, authentic Italian pastas and appetizers (if you can't find your favorite dish, ask the server and they sometimes make off-the-menu traditional dishes), and a lively atmosphere. The service is Ecuadorian... More

One of our Ecuadorian friends introduced us to the great little pizza place. We had an appetizer of tomatoes topped mozzarella cheese that was wonderful. Plus crisp pizza with an assortment of toppings. Don't miss out on the bottle of spicy vinegar. We are from Texas so we loved it hot & spicy.

The crazy vegetarian pizza is really packed full of veggies. Home delivery is not that great and the pizzas get soggy. Service is not the best; we arrived at the time they supposedly opened and were made to wait about 30 minutes and actually told to wait OUTSIDE. That said, the pizza is pretty good.

We walked from our hotel (Lugano Suites) to the Al Forno (this took less than five minutes). We had a simple pizza and salad. The thin-crust pizza was absolutely delicious. We were more than pleased with our choice - the meal with one water and one beer came to only $18.80 - remarkable value.

They only have 2 lines and both on waiting call. I have been trying to order for over an hour and I can't get to talk to a person.
