Al Forno Putney Ratings and Reviews
service..very good and friendly people, they're always there when we require service, and never rushed us.
Food.. some of us had starters and most of us had pizza and 1 escalope, and everyone was happy with their food. Nice pre meal stuzzichini, sharing platters, especially the caldo siciliano. Pizzas were nice. For me the Diavolo pizza could have been more hotter and spicier (but then for some people may have been fine), for 1 person's pizza, said the tomato salsa didn't appear cooked enough. Espresso not very strong (I do understand it'll never be the same as in Italy) and due to this just a little too small of amount. Lovely desserts, the apple crumple, tasty although could be more of a larger portion, as well as the custard portion.
Value.. good value. Bill was less than what I expected, and orders on bill spot on.
It was our official 'Family Engagement Meal' a pivotal moment for our families to meet each other before our wedding - Al Forno was a hit! We had chosen this venue as it was roughly a location in London that was in the middle for both of our families to travel to. The food was delicious including appetiser, main and dessert. Everyone was happy with their choices and sized portions. In some places, as a large group you can be left for a long time before being served; I am very happy to say that we were not overlooked and were well catered to. The staff were professional, attentive and friendly with a homely feel; something that can go amiss with larger restaurant chains. I would definitely recommend this restaurant, even for delicate stomachs as my Grandparents found suitable dishes on the menu without fuss. Thank you Al Forno team for being part of our special occasion
I have been bringing my mum here for meals for quite a few years, sometimes with wider family members. The food is excellent and the staff are so friendly and helpful, especially this last visit as we were an hour late due to various events in and around London. I love over two hours away and only come when visiting my mum but I really love it there.
We were splendidly catered for - in every sense - at Al Forno's on 5th February. The staff were superb and the food excellent. I only docked a star on "Ambience" because there were quite a few children there, and some were not well behaved. Overall, however, a really fine meal - good quality, plenty of it and top-notch value for money. Thank you!
Me and my boyfriend discovered Al Forno about 1 year ago when he was living in Barnes and we keep going there for our date nights and special occasions even if we don't live there anymore as it never lets us down. Food is AMAZING and the plates are so filling that you never leave disappointed! Service is friendly and in the Italian style and the whole atmosphere makes you feel as you are in Italy, on a nice and sunny day!
Al Forno serves up some of the best pizzas anywhere - please note that a "small" pizza is very definitely enough for one person, even if they have a large appetite. Starters were also very good (I personally loved the sardines). The restaurant was busy and lively, which meant that the service, whilst attentive, was a little slower than normal.
