Have been to Al Forno four times in the last couple of weeks and the welcome, service, and food, has been consistently outstanding. Would highly recommend this restaurant with individualised attention, perfect for an intimate dinner or a crowd.

As always, we had an awesome dining experience. Food was great, delicious and timely. The manager was floating about and he was great quality - a really awesome guy. The staff were attentive and everything was great! 10/10

A big thank you to all the staff at Al Forno! We felt very much welcomed and valued. The staff was caring and friendly, attentive to our every need! And the food was what I expected: an authentic and tasty Italian flavour! You are so far the best Italian restaurant we had tried👌. The pizza was truly the way my daughter and I love it: a thin and crispy base with a really fresh and generous topping! The gnocchi were soft, tasty, creamy and sooo cheesy 👌. The crème brûlée had this distinct crack sound when you break the caramel on the top. And the crème itself was smooth and melting in the mouth. The generous pistachio gelato on the side was the real thing! It was worth travelling 1.10hr in a heavy traffic to get there! I am already thinking to come back to celebrate our 28th anniversary!

The food is always good here. On our most recent visit, we were completely ignored after our mains arrived. No check for more drinks, desert, coffee, nothing. I guess it's time to find some place new.

Food still tastes good. Portions have become smaller. My son always has Lasagna. Normally he cannot finish.Last night I had to buy him McDonalds on the way home.
