Food was lovely. The starter we had was recommended by the waiter and it was the most delicious thing I have ever tasted. However, service was quite slow, but pleasant.

Have been here twice now, each time ordering different courses. The first time I went for the seafood risotto which made just how it should be. The second time I went for a calzone which had ham, mozzarella and tomato. Best calzone I've tried in Liverpool so far, and would recommend any calzone lovers to try it! Although it could... More

Came here with a family group of 7 and from start to finish it was excellent, the staff interacted with the children and were very attentive. The food however was on another level, the best Italian we have eaten outside of Italy.

Ate there day we arrived, a quietish Thursday evening. Excellent service and food. Good enough we went back on Saturday evening - place was throbbing with folk looking to enjoy great food. Not a chain and the better for it.

We ate here last night after a recommendation, we were not disappointed. The service was brilliant and the food amazing. I had the Gamberoni All'Aglio starter which was lovely and fresh tasting with all the flavours perfectly balanced. My husband choose the Tagliolini Al Nero Di Seppua Con Capesante E Salsa Allo Zafferano which was absolutely delicious, I'm definitely having... More

We visited Il Forno early on Saturday night. They let my 10 year old and her cousin (also 10) sit at a table alone (as per their birthday request 😊) Both tables received excellent service and, as always, the food was delicious, came quickly and you could taste the good quality of the ingredients. It's a great place to come... More
