Very disappointed with our first visit. We were ten minutes early and were left standing by the door. We were escorted to a table for four and ordered a drink and food. We had started our drinks and then we're asked to move to another table for four. We were given no explanation for the move and ended up next to a table for eight. It was exceptionally noisy and we couldn't hear each other speak. After the main course we decided to leave. We asked for the bill three times and it was half an hour before it came. It was my wife's birthday and was a real let down. We won't be coming again. It seems you don't offer the same service to all your customers!

We enjoyed an excellent meal in a lovely setting. The restaurant on a Tuesday evening was not very busy, so the atmosphere was a little muted but still perfectly OK. The food, the presentation and the service were all top class, and the staff very friendly and quietly attentive. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the city, and would love to return myself at some stage. Jon

We used to visit il forno many years ago and finally had the chance to return. It did not let us down. Everything about the experience was just as great as we remembered. We hope we get the chance again.

A small family gathering met for lunch on Saturday. Service, as always, was excellent. Everyone opted for the lunchtime menu and enjoyed their meal (the mussels were delicious). There was an extensive choice of wine, and we opted for a Sardinian red that complimented our main courses perfectly.

Like to visit Il Forno every time I'm in Liverpool. Had a lovely meal last night. Staff are friendly, attentive and friendly. Excellent food with a wide variety for every taste. Quite an expensive restaurant but well worth it for an occasional visit.

Celebrated my father's 65th birthday here and the staff were very helpful with the surprises we organised. The food was also exception and the grilled sea bass being filleted at the table was a real highlight! We had drink at atavaloa just before that was an excellent way to start an itialin feast.

From the moment we arrived at the restaurant we were made to feel very welcome by all staff. We took ages to decide what to order as there was a huge choice on the menu. Food was fantastic and the restaurant was really lovely and comfortable to sit in. This was our first visit to Liverpool, so were unsure of where to go for meals, drinks etc, but really pleased we chose Il Forno. We would definitely book again if in the area.
