Amazing woodfire pizza!
Delicious! Gorgeous, relaxing atmosphere. It was so nice to get out, the first in a while and everything was so yum! The clam spaghetti, the snapper, the pizzas and the prawn ravioloni di gamberi. So good:) Thanks so much for a great dinner for our special occasion.
Had a great 80th birthday celebration. Excellent food and fantastic service - we will definitely be back.
Great selection of delicious gluten free meals for Coeliacs.
Outstanding food & service, we don't come often but when we do it is always very good.
We had a fabulous evening. The service was outstanding and the meals were excellent.
We personally found the food a bit tasteless but our friends enjoyed their food they ordered
The service / food was amazing as always , you guys rock
Nice food,friendly stuff,good place to visit for a genuine Italian food experience!
Love this place. Every time the service and food are just GREAT
Of the six of us that had a main meal half of us were a little disappointed with the food but service and atmosphere was great
Wonderful service, great atmosphere and delicious food!
From when we first walked through the door hubby and I felt truly welcomed. Beautiful cosy atmosphere as it was a cold night out but inside felt warmed by terrific attentive service by staff. We started with antipasto platter which was tasty, those olives were delicious along with the different varieties of meat and cheese and other delicacies. We then ordered a pizza which had a beautiful base and toppings, very tasty along with a lovely salad with pear and parmesan. A wonderful even to celebrate my birthday, we will be back again. Thank you for the perfect dining experience and perfect end to my birthday.
Love the free range meat
Your restaurant is one of only a couple that are our absolutely "go to's"! Our first choice when dining out. We always love the atmosphere, service and the FOOD! Oh yum! There is something for the whole family. It's warm and inviting and we always leave feeling completely satisfied and oh so FULL. Thank you so much.
We chose to celebrate yet another birthday at Alforno as we love the cosy atmosphere, friendly attentive staff and amazing food. Thank you for catering for our family and the complimentary lemonchello.
We visited Al Forno to celebrate my partner's birthday and had a really wonderful dining experience. The FOH and wait staff were, without exception, friendly and welcoming. Service was efficient and warm, without being intrusive. The food was outstanding. We shared chicken liver in marsala sauce for entree which was delicious. We both had eye fillet steak (one with mustard sauce and one with tomato based sauce), roast veges and broccoli for mains. The veges could have been hotter (we did not mention this to the waitstaff as they tasted delicious even though a little cool), but the steak and the sauces were absolutely perfectly cooked and full of flavour. For dessert we had the baked cheesecake and citrus creme brulee. Both were beautiful, but the brulee with a hint of orange was the standout. Can recommend the house made lemon, lime and bitters as well. Will definitely return when next in Auckland, recommend for delicious, attractively plated meals.
Great service delicious food and happy atmosphere - slightly hard to hear in there but otherwise fabulous .
Everything was amazing! Food, service, warmth from the cold! Amazing, definitely will be back again thank you!
You were amazing! I came in with my son and you went out of your way to make him feel special. Thank you so much
