This was our first visit to Il Forno having walked past and looked in many times. Great atmosphere, service, and food. Brilliant traditional Italian restaurant. We will visit again soon.

38 of my family and friends went to Il Forno for a meal for my son's 21st birthday. It was a Saturday night and the restaurant was very busy. We ordered started platters for everyone which were amazing and then our main meals arrived. The service was fantastic, we all received our meals at the same time, which for a... More

As an Il Forno regular I'm surprised toreador some negative reviews. The food and service has always been excellent and this is one of my favourite places to eat in Liverpool.

We had to wait almost an hour for our starters to arrive, which was far too long and whilst they were really nice it would have been better had they came sooner. Didn't have to wait too long for the mains to arrive, a few of our party ordered steak, i felt for the price it wasn't the quality it... More

There was over an hour wait for the starters, and another long wait for the main courses. Some of the food was good but the steaks were... More

Not the best Italian food I have had. Nice decor no atmosphere. Felt food was rushed even though restaurant was half empty. I will not be eating here again.

The whole experience was flawless. We were greeted at the door and shown straight to our table. The waiter was excellent and was chatty making us all feel very much at ease. The food I cannot fault, there were 4 of us and we all had different main courses and nobody had a bad word to say about it. All... More

Visited this restaurant with family for my husbands 60th birthday having been there once before on a Sunday and been really happy with it. To say I was disappointed was an understatement - we waited over an hour for our starters which I have to say we're nice when they arrived but I think we would have been waiting longer... More
