Great place, great atmosphere, very friendly genuine Italian staff, food is AMAZING - proper authentic tasty Italian and superb portion sizes for the price. We walked past Pizza Express and Bella Italia to get here, they were both dead and yet this place was heaving - says it all really!! Will definitely come back, whether it be a date night or family outing, perfect for both sorts of occasions!

Went last night. Seated straight away and the food was good quality and reasonably priced. Only gripe, steak was delivered and I had to wait then ask for a steak knife. Only other thing, ordered a pint when meal was delivered, was nearly finished when I chased it and was finally delivered. Full of Italian people dining, that's always my acid test!!

Cosy setup. Good food. The mussels starter was just perfectly cooked not too raw not too cooked. The Salmon Fiorentina tasted really good. I had fun with my team

Great food, ok service.. My friends and I went here for a Sunday lunch in the summer, there were 6 of us and we'd booked the restaurant on our Taste cards thereby entitling us to 50% off the bill. I explained that we had the cards when I booked and all was fine.

When we arrived all was rosy until I double checked that they knew we had the card. Firstly, they said they didn't accept the cards on Sunday's (which they do and in fact this has not been changed on the Taste website since), then the service went steadily down hill.

The saving grace was the food, the antipasti selection to start was lovely, but the real winner was the main course. I had seafood linguine which had been baked in paper. it was brought out in the baking parchment and cut at the table so all of the pasta, sauce and seafood was turned out onto my dish. It was one of the best meals I've had.

Al Forno is a nice traditional Italian restaurant with delicious large pizzas. Found the place using the Letyano app and received the reward of 15% off which is always nice. The vegetarian pizza was really good and went well with the house red.
Pop back in next time i'm in Kingston.

Had a lovely meal here last night. We were about to go to zizzi but spotted this place and thought we would give it a try. So glad we did! Amazing authentic home cooked Italian food served by Italian staff with real pride. Reasonable prices and very clean. Would 100% go back. The pics were taken after a few mouthfuls as it looked too nice and we were so hungry!

Very nice atmosphere and vibe. We had dinner with no reservation and there was no issue to accommodate us. We had octopus, mussels, pizza margherita and pizza with friarielli sausage and nduja that I highly recommend as well the fabulous gelato. You can feel the Italian hospitality coming from the whole staff. On this topic I would like to thank our waiter Pietro that went extra miles for us. See you soon guys!

Fantastic Italian restaurant in Kingston. Much better food than any of the 'Italian' chains in and around Kingston, and not far off on price either. The atmosphere is going to be abit of a love it or hate it for alot of people. It's very warm and friendly, but also very loud and involved. If it's somebody's birthday — they will come out shouting Happy Birthday with multiple guitars. If that's your kind of thing then you'll love this place. If you prefer a quite dinner and to be largely left alone, then maybe not. I didn't sit outside, but I assume that's going to be a bit quieter, even when you factor in the cars and street noise. Food was fantastic throughout. The cheese bowl/crown with the risotto is a great idea because it adds an incredible cheese flavour to the risotto. The carbonara was superb too. Plenty of pancetta and good flavour. The desserts were to die for. We had the Pistachio Ice cream and the Chocolate Souffle. Individually they were phenomenal, but they worked even better together. The pistachio ice cream is mainly vanilla ice cream, but with a light pistachio crust, and a gooey pistachio core. If you like pistachio, you'll love this. It's a must try. Highly recommend!

Fantastic Italian restaurant located just outside the main area of shops and restaurants in Kingston. The food is absolutely delicious! The pasta, especially you can tell is freshly made and tastes absolutely incredible. There’s nice selection of drinks and Italian wines available and also a good dessert menu too. One nice thing I suggest doing if you’re eating out with a few people is to order a few Starters and Mains and share to try as many dishes as possible. I specifically recommend the Calamari and the Pesto Pasta… You can get a tasty meal all for a really competitive price. The staff is absolutely lovely and friendly and the restaurant itself has a really cosy atmosphere. Well worth a visit when in Kingston!

Lovely evening with family at Al Forno last night. Great to see a local business thriving on a Saturday night. Gamberoni prawns were divine and we all had a variety of mains, sea food pasta, salmon, pizza and lasagne. Clean plates all around. House white wine was lovely and highly recommended. Will be back to sample more of the menu another time. Thank you!

Love this place. They have amazing pizza and even better pasta ( frutti di mare - hats off!). Good selection of wines and few beers in their offer. I would definitely recommend this place to all Italian food lovers.

This is the best Italian restaurant for miles! We been coming here for last 10/12 years and never had a meal which wasn’t great. The garlic chilli prawns appetiser is always brilliant and so are their pastas and fillet steak. Fabio and his team are absolutely fantastic. Thank you!

What a great restaurant! We went there after a day at the Wimbledon tournament. The food is delicious! Everything we had, pizza, seafood, veal, rib eye, deserts, all were prepared beautifully and the taste was amazing. Also the staff had such a nice and positive energy. Unfortunately I don't live near the place, otherwise I would have found my go to place for delicious real Italian food. Next time I am in the London area, you know where to find me :-)

We found this place off chance. I really fancied Italian food so goggled nearest restaurant and Al Forno came up. I’m very picky person when it comes to food... I fancied particular dishes and this place had it. Little did I know that this place had the best food I have ever had!!! And service was amazing. With Italian accent and amazing dishes I felt like I was on holiday. Will definitely return here to eat and 100% recommended!
