Very pleased with the food and service at il Forno. My husband and I were in Liverpool as part of our honeymoon trip and happily discovered il Forno. We have great Italian restaurants in Toronto and the food here was just as good - excellent pasta dishes (I had the bolognese and my husband had a seafood pasta with langoustine), and very attentive service. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting an authentic Italian meal in Liverpool.

We were a table of 10 during the Giant Spectacle weekend. Although the restaurant was busy, the service was good. Really good range of dishes on the menu, and the food was delicious.

The Spaghetti allo Scoglio is out of this world. The staff food and service are all first class. This was my first visit but it will not be my last.

Il Forno, The Oven. A welcoming feature of this restaurant is this huge open mouthed oven ready to serve you. The simplest recipe is fresh, delightful and often a wonderful surprise. You will not taste a finer mozzarella, nor experience better flavour in each chosen dish. Should you need a dish adapted to suit, staff are ready to oblige. Altogether, a wonderful experience.

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.
