We chose the place on Sunday late afternoon as this was one of few places open at 3pm . Good pizza, pasta at reasonable prices. Average service: u need to ask separately for parmesan for pasta, oil for pizza. I would go there again!

They do not accept credit cards. Moreover, while we were still having the drinks and waiting for the pizzas, a more comfortable table, farther from the corridor, was freed. I politely asked the waiter whether we could move and he just said a short and sharp "nein". I still do not understand why.

We sat outside in the heart of Esslingen to eat lunch. Lunch specials are listed on the board and excellent menu to choose from. Food was good, wait staff was patient with our bad German, and food was served quickly.

I went with my family to eat in this restaurant, the staff were very helpful, the service was fast, and the food was very close to Italian food, Pasta and Pizza are great. Prices are very cheap

Al Forno has amazing food - from their pasta to their made-where-you-can-watch wood burning brick oven pizza!! Overall, the favorite Italian restaurant of my family and friends when they visit us in Esslingen. The only problem - the service is not so great...some days they are friendly and there in a reasonable time - other days, they seem to debate... More

We have been there because of the positive comments we read on tripAdvisor (there were just 2). The atmosphere wasn't bad, but, being saturday evening, we expected a crowded place - instead it was more or less empty... The waiter could'nt speak English or Italian at all and his German was just understandable. It seemed as if it was his... More

Al Forno is the real deal! They make their pizzas in the open where you can watch them and then slide the pizza into their brick oven. Great prices at lunch! Dinner prices are average. Great sidewalk cafe tables to sit at with a fabulous ice cream store next door which will serve you dessert at the same table you... More

The pizza comes from a wood burning oven and not over or under cooked. Be wary of peppers put on most pizzas, but can be taken off. Great food, good prices, no limocella for a chaser.
