Food was nice but we were served by the manager who was very rude throughout the meal. My partner asked for a box to take his pizza home and he was extremely rude and reluctant to do so.

Good quality generally, pleasant surroundings. Not a wide vegetarian selection on menu. Wine prices get very expensive very sharply. Have eaten there before and will do again.

having been here for a few lovely meals i decided to take my mum when she came to visit. the service was terrible. our waiter didn't speak at all. i looked as if he was rolling his eyes at us as we ordered. my pizza was terrible. it was like a rock, my hand was sore from trying to cut it. i give up in the end and left it. i was so embarassed that id told mum how nice it was.out of all the places to eat in Liverpool there are loads of places better than here. Will not be returning.

First class food - as expected (we have dined here several times before) but the usually very good service was surpassed! It was my daughter's graduation celebration and Alessio went out of his way to make her, and us, feel special. I particularly appreciated his time explaining and serving up the various - excellent - Italian craft ales we sampled! A memorable evening

Lovely meal (far too much!) for daughters graduation, but best was the really human touch from the waiters, attentive and really good fun. Nice to have some one with humour! Grazie. Mike j and family

As a regular eating often at Il Forno on this occasion for lunch with friends. As usual everything was perfect a little lacking in atmosphere as it was very quiet and quite empty. Service was good but the choice of lunchtime menu since the price increase is quite limited but I will return

Restaurant strongly recommended. Friendly but professional staff. Also recommended to Italians who are in town. It is the best Italian restaurant I have found on my many trips to England.

We have been coming to Il Forno for many years and always have a good time. We brought our friends from Cyprus on Saturday and they really enjoyed it too. The service was great and food delicious.

I took my partner to Il Forno for his birthday and we had a beautiful meal. The service and food were excellent and we really appreciated being seated in a lovely private booth as we wanted a quiet seat. Thanks to all the staff, we look forward to our next visit . E. Parker.

When we arrived, we were taken to the seating area where we were told that 'our table was being set up for us'. 45 minutes later and we were still waiting, without even a drink being offered to us. When we were finally take to our table, I was awestruck by the appalling seating arrangements. The tables were obviously arranged as close as possible next to each other to maximise the restaurant's turnover. I was pretty much brushing shoulders with the table next to me. Looking at the people around me, I could see that we would be in for a long wait. There were several families and couples looking incredibly bored and frustrated with their plates not having been taken and their food taking an aeon to arrive. Unsurprisingly, we had a long wait for our food to arrive. The restaurant was clearly understaffed compared to the vast concentration of tables in the room, with the waiters brushed off their feet and managers having to serve as well, and not able to clear out staters plate before our mains arrived. It took about 20 minutes for our plates to be taken, as the waiter's excuse was that 'he thought we hadn't finished' even though our plates were clear. Adding to this, the sheer nerve for a service charge to be added onto the bill. Given the top review this place has, and for what we paid, this was an abhorrent experience and I certainly will not be returning.
