We decided to try a pizza and I was tricked by the wood oven. Honestly I can say that they have no clue how to make a decent pizza. Everything was just not right from the dough to the ingredients (you don't put oregano with mozzarella...never!) I know Dubai is not Naples but there are other places where you can... More

My review won't be too descriptive, but the lamb leg I've eaten here was the best!!! It was really the best lamb that can be cooked! It's tenderness was like fish. Anywhere else I've eaten lamb it felt more rough. But this... Whenever I go there again, it will be the first restaurant and dish that I'll order. Thanks!

Real food Italian...trying to also get the hubby on my side... succeeded on this occasion - let's see how far I succeed! Al Forno does it really good... More

This is a great place to eat Italian food. Their dishes are excellent and the prices very reasonable. The pizza is authentic Italian. Good service as well.

There was nothing special about this visit. The garlic bread with mozzarella was extremely salty I ordered the lasagne and was told it was no longer available. This was disappointing. I therefore ordered a caprese salad no black olives. It was served to me covered in olives. No seasoning, bland tomatoes, no basil!???? Not the best caprese! Diet 7up as... More

This might be one my worse restaurants experience ever, the waiter was rude and slow The food was cold, tasteless and took 45 min to arrive The franchising company is normally very good and hold various international brands but this one is for sure the worse

I visited this restaurant on Saturday with my 9 year old daughter. We were seated then, eventually, we were asked for our order. We ordered a starter, main meal and drinks. Abut a minute after the server had taken our order I realised I had ordered the wrong main meal. I called a different server over to explain that I... More

A good place to stop if you are shopping at Mirdif City Centre and feel like a pizza! We ordered the Sfilatino which were delicious, maybe a little too big for lunchtime but we were hungry! Complimentary warm breads and spreads on our table were very good, the lime soda which they make is delicious so why only an average... More
