As one might expect from a place calling itself ‘oven-baked,’ Al Forno specialises in delicious Italian dishes fired in an authentic Italian stone oven. Of course this means that Al Forno – run by a group of chefs with training and years of experience in and around Naples, pizza’s Holy Land – offers some of the very best pizzas to be had in West London. The dough is made in-house each day, topped with 100% mozzarella and fresh plum-tomato sauce and blasted in the oven to create that iconic thin-but-foldable Neapolitan crust. This cosy and elegant Italian eatery in the heart of Shepherd’s Bush (at Romney Court on Shepherd’s Bush Green), though, is not just a pizzeria, and their range of signature oven-baked dishes (the lasagna is rich and moreish, and their penne-based pasta bakes are unique) is just as impressive as the pizza, not to mention the wealth of risottos, salads, hefty mains, dainty desserts and even satisfying breakfast meals.
Fantastic meal really enjoyable and the services was brilliant - will most certainly reccomend to friends and go to this resturant again when back in the area.
This charming restaurant is found in a busy location but has the home cooking feel of a rustic taverna. Exquisitely flavoured pasta dishes - all speedily prepared.
There was great food and very quick service for a brilliantly low price! The only downfall was that many of the tables were situated outside, rather than under a roof. However this isn't really an issue in the summer.
