About Al Forno – East Coast

The name of this restaurant itself gives the game away in the best possible fashion, indicating precisely the centrepiece of this distinguished Italian restaurant along Singapore’s East Coast Road. ‘Forno’ means ‘oven’ in Italian, and at Al Forno’s East Coast premises it’s the traditional wood-fired oven that imparts that inimitable flavour to all manner of dishes, not just the proper Neapolitan pizza that this eatery is famous for. Established in 1995, Al Forno has become a fixture both for casual dining and for private hire, so be sure to book well in advance.

Further Information

Okay, it’s true, Al Forno is, at least for East Coast locals, famed for it’s pizza above all else. After all, this is a Neapolitan Italian restaurant, and Naples is most famous for inventing Italy’s most famous culinary export, the pizza, and you can rest assured that this restaurant does not deviate from the demands that tradition places on producing the perfect pie. All the classics are represented on the menu, but it’s a safe bet that Singapore’s seafood fanatics will be into the costeria speciale, topped with mozzarella plus sauteed clams, prawns, mussels and squid.

Oven-baked main courses are also a major feature at Al Forno, with our recommendation being the whole red snapper making tasty friends with clams, mussels and prawns in a white wine sauce. A horde of other classic Italian pasta dishes, sides and desserts are on offer at this East Coast favourite, but be sure to watch out for the ever-changing promotional set meals such as the Sunday brunch menu, offering Singapore diners the chance to really explore authentic Italian cuisine at great prices. While Al Forno’s East Coast Road restaurant is spacious enough for a large celebration, casual diners are advised to make an advance booking.

Great pizza and pasta. After we visited here, we keep ordering delivery almost every week.

The best pizza dough and a wood fired oven! Still the best Italian in town! And having lived in Italy, I know what I am talking about ;-)

Great food, lovely ambience and good value. For starters - Carpaccio Napoletano - fresh thin slices of raw beef on a bed of rocket salad topped with shaved parmesan cheese. This was good and the beef left a very clean taste on the palate. For mains, we had the Spaghetti Cartoccio - spaghetti with mixed seafood (crayfish, prawns, squid, mussels, clams), capers, black olives and a dash of chilli in tomato sauce. EXCELLENTE and really good value for money. Would have given a 6 if not that they now charge for bread when most other Italian restaurants, it's usually complementary.

Excellent Italian restaurant with a good ambience (casual and family friendly). Salad was a tad disappointing as the waitress neglected to inform my partner that there was no avocado (they had run out of it) in the salad, when there ought to be in the first place. Had the vongole which was done to perfection. Portions are decent.

Food was great! The price was a little more than the average price but you got them back in your food - "fish fillet" in pasta was actually cod fish fillet :) All in all the place was great just that it could get a little noisy as all the guests were chatting away~

Laid back family-friendly restaurant. Many diners seem to be enjoying the pastas and pizzas. We ordered mozarella cheese, Linguine Al Aragosta and Tagliate Di Carne. The mozarella cheese tasted a little harder than others that we have tried. The linguine was good although the lobster didn't taste real 'fresh'. For the Tagliate, we asked for medium-well but it came out very well-done to the point of being burnt for most of the pieces of meat. Will try the pizzas next time!

Very nice place between siglap and katong. This place is at peranakan hotel. They been around for ages and serves very authentic Italian cuisine. Very good pastas and pizzas with a wide selection of wines and alcohol. Highly recommended

We had a lovely time, but the service was quite slow (due to it being a busy night, so understandable). We were served the wrong starter (clams instead of mussels), but didn't want to wait to reorder, and then my main only came as my wife was finishing her food. Great food and atmosphere, though
