This place is very typical Italian, it has the old school Italian decor, the hidden tables in the corners, a romantic singer every weekend and a lot of good food and service! I've been here many times, it's for sure the best pizza in Kingston! It's thin and fresh too and there's a lot of flavours which taste great. Everything... More

Nice surroundings, mock rustic italian decor was done well and reminded me of the real thing. a Attentive but not pushy staff, good food and excellent wine with prices as expected for London although £77.00 for two courses, bottle of wine and coffee isn't cheap, as a Yorkshireman I was not overly concerned as the quality of the food and...

Had a table for 7, found the seats uncomfortable and we were very crammed in with one person on the end of the table, making it difficult to eat. The staff were very nice and friendly. Food however was not really impressed, starters are tiny for the price, main pizzas were generally good but the pasta dishes not so much... More

Food is beyond delicious, always tasty and cooked to perfection. Al Forno is a typical rustic Italian restaurant and I can only praise them for their consistency. I am always trying... More

Went here as a family of 4 for my mums birthday. The food is very tasty and it has a good menu if not a little expensive although I suppose that's London prices. However, after eating and enjoying our starters we waited, and waited, and waited for our mains. They were a no show. We even ordered a garlic bread... More

My partner and I visited this restaurant with family and whilst it was very busy the service was better than we expected. The staff were friendly and helpful but the food itself was only average. Our food was cold, both starters and main courses, and we didn't complain at the time because we were so hungry! We also felt that... More
