Points lost on atmosphere due to circumstances outside your control ( covid19) I've been previously and the atmosphere was 5 star.

Really enjoy visiting Il Forno. Staff are always attentive without being intrusive. Food is excellent and the early diner meal is good value with plenty of choice.

Her møter du servitører som holder høy klasse! Maten er det heller ingenting å utsette på - et klassisk italiensk kjøkken.

Although the service was impeccable the food was extremely disappointing. The pasta wasn’t cooked enough as far as I was concerned and the tomato sauce was acidic and unpleasant and contained only six pieces of sausage. I wouldn’t eat here again.

Disappointing visit. The restaurant was cold and we were told there was a problem with the heating. The lasagne appeared to have been re heated and despite having a pleasant taste was dry.

My second trip to this restaurant - following my first visit for a Christmas Party. From the welcome to leaving this brilliant restaurant made us to feel so welcome. Traditional but contemporary the food was amazing and the staff made my daughter feel so special. If you can, book a booth near the pizza oven and prepare yourself for some authentic Italian hospitality.

We were in Liverpool to see my daughter who is at Liverpool John Moores University. We wanted somewhere good for a meal together and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and the staff were all very pleasant. The service was very efficient and the restaurant has a great atmosphere. This is the third time I have been in the past 6 months and has been better each time than the time before. Definitely would recommend it.

Dined here on valentines night & had to wait outside in a huge queue for our table. Table was booked for 8.30 however we didn’t actually get seated until 9pm. The food took so long to come, our order wasn’t taken until we had to eventually call over a waiter and say we hadn’t been offered any drinks or given the complimentary glass of champagne that was supposed to be provided when seated with the valentines menu (£35pp). The staff were all over the place and everything just seemed so unorganised. There were tables around us that had complained about waiting so long for food and it seemed as though the restaurant had over booked for that night! Heard good things about this restaurant but our first experience wasn’t the best which led us to not have such a great night. We spent about 3 hours at the restaurant due to all the waiting around and we got the bill as soon as we had ate. Food wasn’t the best as everything seemed so rushed but I’m sure this place has potentially to give a good experience!
