I have been going to see Farbio (and Marko a little later) for about about 10 years now, and even though I now live in the USA I will always be back! I call this place my place in Kingston as I'm sure so many other people feel the same as I do. Not only is it a great Place... More

Booked a table for 11. Arrived on the night, we were seated then left for 20 minuted before anyone offered drinks. Whilst ordering drinks we also ordered starters and mains. The starter took 40 minutes to arrive, no apology offered. By the time starters were served everyones glass was empty, however the waiter failed to look at the table to... More

Been here twice before, first time was great. Saturday night, amazing food, quick service. A few months later came back and we were basically ignored while waiting hours for food.

My friends and I went here last night and the place was very busy and from the outside it looks very inviting with strands of fairy lights hanging down over the front, but as soon as we went inside there was a bit of chaos and we ended up standing waiting to be seated while many of the waiters bustled...

This is truly a remarkable restaurant to visit. So much character and authenticity. The food is excellent and something that you have to experience for yourself for words would not do it justice. We were a large group of people and we were treated very well - the staff were very well organised. Overall a day I would remember for... More

Paid by cash and had to argue for the receipt, the food poor/average and the manager's (Roberto) behavior appalling when he was asked for a receipt-very argumentative and rude - he continued insulting us, a group of ladies.We will never return here.

Eight of us had a wonderful evening at Al Forno in Kingston upon Thames last night. Our food was fantastic- tasty, authentic, good portion size and reasonably priced. Service was with a smile and staff were attentive to our needs. The evening was made memorable by the fun environment created by Fabio and his team: guitars, singing, improvised percussion instruments.... More

Al Forno is a great restaurant with fantastic food hence a wonderful place for a birthday. My son's girlfriend booked it for a group for her birthday. There had obviously been a mix up with the booking for the table as there was no record. Instead of the Manager saying there had obviously been a mix up he accused my... More
