The decor is homey but the ambience was not at all enjoyable - the place was very crowded with staff and it was noisy despite there being only a few other customers in the place. The food was just above average. We had sand in our vongole (clams) quite a common flaw in Italian restaurants, which was not impressive. Service... More

Not sure if we ordered the "wrong" dish. I had a spaghetti vongole, my husband had ravioli. Both pastas were unexpectedly bad. I said unexpected as we did not think that an authentic Italian restaurant would serve such quality to their guests - two Italian looking men were making pizzas. The spaghetti was soggy and tasteless , whilst the ravioli... More

The 3 of us visited current outlet on Friday 6th Jan 2017 for lunch. We reserved a table for 3 via Chope. There was no crowd on that Friday lunch hour. We ordered squid ink pasta, wrapped pizza and seafood rice. We make it a point to have variety for sharing and to taste their different options in the menu.... More

Use of dried instead of fresh herbs made for a very expensive and very disappointing Caprese salad. The risotto, while quite generous with sea food, lacked seasoning. Pizzas were reasonable. Service and environment good. Wish they could work on the food. For the price, not good enough.

Dined here with 5 others for an office group dinner. The restaurant has a relaxed vibe. The service is a mixed bag, but generally is ok. The menu is long and the pizza selection was great. We had a variety of salads to share. The burrata salad was particularly delicious. The pizzas were large, crispy and thin, with a decent... More

Al Forno Restaurant is one of our family's favourite eating places. The food is great (especially the Pizza, Calamari & Zuppa) & service friendly. We could dine in T-shirts & shorts & not feel out of place.

No other Italian restaurant comes close to Al Forno! We occasionally try other places but always come back. The food is delicious and hearty. You can always rely on an amazing meal from here.

Pizza and the soup were good. The squid ink pasta was something which was new. The overall service was a bit slow.

Very good spread of Italian cuisine and constantly replenished! It's usually full house, so remember to make reservations in advance.
