Very good ambience. Very suitable for large group dining here
We enjoyed the meal very much ! Service was good !
Pizza was excellent, great atmosphere, and good choice of wine
Fantastic pizza, pasta, wine and service. The waiter kindly served us extra large limoncello to top off the meal
It was this Monday night that my partner and I visited Al Forna after a long absence of almost a year. Restaurant was moderately busy on a Monday night. We ordered clams, lagsana and a pizza. Clams were a bit over cooked. Lagsana were a bit bland which we have put aside after a couple of bites. We asked for the dessert menu after finishing the clams and pizza. We had ordered Irish coffee at least 4 times during our past visits although it was not on the menu. Surprisingly, it is on the current dessert menu. The waiter who gave us the dessert menu did not come back for our dessert order after more than 10 mins. We finally got hold of a senior waitress's attention and ordered lemon cello for two after complaining about the lack of service to her. She brought us the lemon cello and mentioned that it is on the house. This is a nice touch.
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.
Authentic no frills good quality Italian food! The bow-tie pasta with crab meat is a must try, as well as the spaghetti vongole. My daughter doesn't eat squid cooked anywhere else except here, what more can I say about the calamari! Lamb chops is nicely grilled, a bit pricey but I will still order it again. Great for families, love the rustic decor!
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.
One of the best places to get good Italian food in the east. The clams are a must try! Having the pizza and pasta here makes it hard for you to have Italian food elsewhere. Good place for a date or to bring family. Come with more people, it's easier to share more yummy food :)
Ordered the squid ink pasta and a seafood pizza. The taste of the pasta was abit over-powering due to the clams but on general, it was good. Generous servings of clams and the pasta was cooked to Al dente. Love the pizza! Thank you for the warm hospitality from the servers, they were a great team. Looking forward to my next visit, soon!
