Great for sharing

Love the food at Al Forno--personally I think the pizzas are much better than the pastas, but they are generally quite nice as well.

We tend to order the rollo every time we come here, and it's always fantastic. The sauce they serve it with seems to be getting spicier each time they prepare it, but it's still tasty.

The servings are quite large, so be prepared to share.

Great pizza in Singapore

This place has the best pizzas i've had in Singapore.  A variety of other offerings on the menu are pretty delicious looking as well.  It always packed on Saturday and Sunday nights with families.  Week nights are more chilled out. Hard working staff and good service overall.  I've gone several times and will continue to do so.

My Fav Italian Haunt

I have been a quiet fan of Al Forno's for about 20 years already (seriously, I'm that old). I remember my fondest dates here with my then-boyfriend-now-hubby and the food is STILL as good!   Focaccia Blanca - we wanted a starter and its nice. Think it as a pizza base without the sauce and ingredients. It's fragrant and goes well with soup. It's also a hit with the kids.   Calamari - the squid rings are nicely battered and fried but I would have liked them seasoned more. Though the rings are tender and crispy, its a little bland for me.   Pizza Alforno - our first time ordering pizza. I love how moist the pizza tasted with the feta cheese and spinach toppings!   Pizza Con Carne - essentially a meaty pizza with ham slices and salami slices. Hub likes it enough.   Spaghetti Cartoccio - my all-time fav baked spaghetti with seafood. They serve it in a tin foil that you cut open to reveal its goodness. The seafood is fresh and generous in amount and the spaghetti cooked till al dente even when baked.    Al Forno remains my favourite Italian restaurant of homage.

authentic pizzeria; simple, tasty food and lively ambience

Been coming here for years, knowing that you get simple, good quality Italian food as you'd get anywhere in Italy. No pretentiousness, just an honest menu that always meets expectations. Pizza is the best I've had in Singapore, the slightly chewy base and quality toppings, perfect. Pastas are interesting, with the squid ink and seafood baked in foil, being my absolute favourites. Winelist is short but good value, some great value Barberas and Montepulcianos. Everytime I come, which is usually once a month, I get my fix of Europe and feel like perhaps the dolomiti are outside the front door. Which reminds me, the air conditioning is fierce, bring a sweater!

Pizza are nice, rest goes from so so to good

A bit pricey, pizza are good, the new menu items are not convincing (Gnocchi chewi). The place could use a revamp, and the Chef could work a little harder to upgrade their offering to today's singapore standards.

Will come back because the other Italian places around are really bad.
