This is one of my favourite places to really enjoy yourself in friendly surroundings . The food is great from the pizzas to the prawns all enjoyed with superb wine including Amarone. It's the staff who make this place and create such a welcoming atmosphere. I would highly recommend for everyone whether it's friends , family or a celebration.

We have visited Al Forno in June 2015 with my wife. I just have to agree with one of the previous reviews I have read. We have had good food but were served by tall miserable waiter with curly black hair with glasses. He came across as quite annoyed. He chucked the menus on the table, didn't greet us well,... More

Everything from the welcome, service, ambience and of course food was excellent! Really good and varied menu, great pasta served in a very authentic setting.

Went to Al Fornos with a group of friends for a lively dinner. I was slightly dubious, but pleasantly surprised, at least as far as the food goes. The antipasti boards were generous and delicious, and the mushroom and truffle pasta with pancetta was really tasty. Nothing fancy, but very enjoyable. There was live music which added to the fun...

I have been to this restaurant quite a few times now, it has a lovely atmosphere, great staff and the food is lovely I've never felt rushed as we do like to take our time especially when it's someone's birthday, looks on to the river across the road and there's a decent smoking area for those who wish to smoke

Been going to Al Forno since it opened, never had a bad meal. Had nearly everything over the years on the menu- enjoyed every dish. Be warned the Regular Pizza is BIG! Service can be slow, not a place for a quick meal - food worth the wait.

Great pizzas and great atmosphere. The only problem was that the music was too loud, which makes it difficult to talk with people. But good food.

Perfectly OK Italian. With a good but rather predictable menu. The "large" pizzas are very large. No complaints but it's all rather unexceptional (and there's plenty of places like this around). The decor's all rather faux and not very contemporary. I'd go back but it's not right at the top of my list for an early return visit.
