An excellent evening out during lock down.The atmosphere of Al Forno cheers you up!
Everything was really good.Lucky to have it as our neighbourhood eatery.
Will go again in the near future and take the family.

Good quality Italian food. Friendly service. A plus point is that the food was lovely and hot. They welcome children and cater for them. Our table for 7 was a bit cramped but they were pretty full. Will go again, especially at the weekend when they seem to make a special effort for families.

Enjoy the starter and dessert
Discrete pizza (I would have expected more from a place called Al Forno) and pasta (too cooked) - London average
Live music was a brownie point
Place was quite cold.
No cheap place thought, and no limoncello offered at the end.

Table was reserved in advanced - Not walked in off the street to see if anything available . My guests and I were placed at a table by the door normally used , I am told , for waiting home delivery drivers . Every time door opened we were hit by a blast of a very cold wind . Furthermore live music was played one yardfrom where we were sitting -Conversation impossible . Food not very good - Must have been a shortage of mushrooms for the risotto and shortage of stawberries for the cheesecake . All in all a very disappointing evening . Al Forno should not have accepted the booking as the restaurant was clearly fully booked . We gave a gratuity to the staff as it was a management problem not theirs .Await your comments

Our second visit and we went with a group this time...

Every part of the night was stellar:

Every course and every drink was delicious.

Food was great and was at a good price. It was quite cosy in there but nothing that took too much away from the experience. Fully recommend the Lasagne

We had our son's birthday dinner on Friday evening and we had a great time. Friendly staff, helpful and great atmosphere. Value for food was great. Family friendly. Definitely recommend. But make sure you book in advance as it gets very busy

The pizzas were huge and delicious with generous toppings. We came for my boyfriend's birthday and the waiting staff were so accommodating. I brought a cake and the whole team sang happy birthday in Italian, it was very operatic, one of them even busted out a cornet. Amazing! Would highly recommend

Had a fantastic meal a month ago so returned! Left a little disappointed with this visit - mainly because of the service.
We sat for 15 minutes prior to anyone serving us and felt the waiter looked pretty miserable.
As before, the food was great value and very tasty. Would certainly visit again - just hope the experience would be a bit more positive next time

A traditional Italian restaurant. Everyone in our part enjoyed their meal and for me it was the best spaghetti bolognaise I've ever had! A lively atmosphere and plenty of well intended embarrassment for anyone unfortunate enough to admit it's their birthday!

Delicious food! This was my second time there and will definitely come back again. For whoever loves live music they also have that, along with an amazing homemade Banofee pie!! The best I've had so far!
