Booked a late table and arrived early! No problem for the courteous staff. Unhurried and helpful, with recommendations on food and drink. A fine few hours spent enjoying the atmosphere as the restaurant filled and my selected items were devoured. Always a good sign when Italian families frequent an Italian eatery. Having recently moved into this area I believe that... More

I live in Spain now but was a regular prior to Al forno Kingston, as soon as I came back for Christmas for two weeks I was super excited for my visit here, but al forno has been destroyed and it really upsets me. I used to get the drink "Sex on the river" for 5 years, this time, I... More

Unfortunately the service at Al Forno was poor in my opinion. Not a single visit to our table (of five) once the main course plates were cleared so we were out of luck if we wanted anything else - which we did. And this was despite the restaurant being quiet. Pity really as the food was very good. The restaurant... More

We have been coming here for many years now and it is our favourite restaurant. We decided to celebrate New Year here this year.There were 8 of us and we had a wonderful time. The menu was great, food was cooked beautifully. The price of £60 was very reasonable, as it included entertainment by way of a singer and disco,... More

We arrived here between 4.30pm-5.00pm for dinner. We did not book a table but the lady said they had a table. No real welcome to the restaurant by the staff, no fuss made of our 5 year old daughter which Italians normally do, waiter asked if we were ready to order so we ordered our food first then drinks, should...

I visited Al Forno for the first time and was mightily impressed by the size and quality of their pizza. For only £7.95, you can get a really decent sized Italian style pizza. Forget Pizza Express, Dominoes or Pizza Hut. As long as Al Forno continue to make pizza at this size and at those prices, I will be coming... More
