Felt like a whole new place. Great for romantic dates. Prices are not too high either. The staff were friendly and the service was great.

Al Forno has been around a long time and usually the food is pretty decent. This time however, everything was tasteless except for the Burata. I think the standards have gone down.

Grt place to dine in. The staffs are good and ingredients are really fresh. Owner was nice and courteous towards every customer. Food took awhile but worth to wait. Good place to try risotto as not all places sell authentic Italian risotto. Price is just nice for a fine dine.

My last visit in 2016 made me come back again for a bday celebration. Ordered the clams in white wine sauce which was an excellent apetitiser, coupled with salad and Lamb. The cappuccino and tiramisu for dessert complete the lunch experience

Came to this restaurant for dinner with family. We got here at 6.30pm and parking was a breeze. Staff was attentive and we got our seat (we booked online earlier the same day). We had pizza (kids love the hand made fire wood oven) and the spageti carbonara. Overall we had a good time 👍

Having lived in Singapore for almost 15 years, Al Forno is still one of my top two go-to places for an amazingly authentic Italian experience. The pizzas are delicious, thin base with delicious crust... and really tasty topping combinations. If you love real garlic bread with lots of flavor you won't be disapointed (though your partner might be later if... More

Absolutely yummy oven baked pizza and rich pasta. One of the most authentic italian tasting restaurants in Singapore I have been to. No frills so do not expect bells and whistles. Expect generous portions.. I would come in a bigger group next time to try more things on the menu!

This is a true italian restaurant in every way. The interior reminds of Italy, and of course they have a stone oven. We ate pizza (Diavola) and it was the best I've eaten in a long while. The house red wine was also very good. For dessert we ate tiramisu and its was delicious. Like in Italy the owner served... More
