We had really nice pizzas here, it's a great little restaurant and we enjoyed our visit. The staff were very friendly, and accommodating even though we hadn't booked and it was a Saturday night.

Have been here three times and loved it everytime! Great atmosphere, fine wine and good food. Excellent place for a couple or group of friends. Get there during the rush and you'll have to wait so best to book!

We've been here a number of times, definitely worth the trip. Very warm and welcoming, great atmosphere and tasty food.

Not fancy or overdone but tasty and satisfying.

We went as a couple on a Saturday night, didn't book, but got a table before the rush. The staff were excellent, loved the food. Glad we were early as by time we left the place was really busy.

Run by an Italian, Al Forno is always busy and has a buzz. Disappointed in our meals this time as my veal was smothered in tomato sauce. One person's veal was quite tough too. My husband's squid was very good so take your chance !
