My boyfriend and I decided to eat here after seeing a great review on this site and wanted to try for ourselves.
The restaurant was packed and very lively, as it was so busy we thought we'd have a long wait for service but it was speedy and friendly. We were given complimentary bread and oil while we looked at the menu and eyed up what everyone else was eating. We decided to skip a starter as the portions were huge. The food was incredibly good and very reasonably priced. We were so full we could only manage to share a dessert which was shame as they all looked amazing!
If there was any downside it would just be that the noise level was a little loud as it's very open plan so we were talking with slightly raised voices to be heard. There is a slightly quieter corner by the entrance which I'd recommend if you're trying to have a romantic meal.

We have only just returned home from another imaginative meal at Al Bivio. The staff are great, manager (owner?) is lovely and all seem genuinely interested that each table is getting what they need. It's not exactly a venue where you 'get to know the neighbors' despite the open-plan .. but the food is fab, one feels very well cared for and I look forward to going back again.

Maybe not the best place for those with hearing issues (the open-plan makes it difficult when crowded), but the hours are flexible and choice of meal excellent .. so eat and go!

We have eaten here many times, sometimes for specific celebrations and sometimes just because. They are warm, friendly, accommodating and most of all want you to have the best experience. If you want something slightly different you only have to ask, My only slight negative comment would be .... there is too much choice!

This venue was the choice of a friend for a meal and drinks after his wife's funeral. I don't know how many people were there but there must have been 100s. Over 300 went to the funeral and others only stopped by at Al Bivio. It was a big crowd and this restaurant handled it brilliantly. I don't think they knew how many would be there. The food was very good, the service was slightly overwhelmed but good and friendly. Thank you Al Bivio for making a sad day a better day as we remembered our friend.

After spending a week touring round Yorkshire on holiday we have eaten out most nights. This has been our favourite meal so far. Lovely restaurant authentic Italian food. We have enjoyed our week in Yorkshire. Would recommend Harrogate and this restaurant.
