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.
Excellent food, atmosphere, service and value for money. Will definitely return when next in the area. Wil,l and have already, recommend to friends and family
Very fast, and I ask for a birthday request for my boyfriend which they did. They made his evening amazing 😉. The food was sooo good “ Lasagna “ wines from Italy which is very good. Also like the Italian music in the restaurant.
6 adults + 1 Child went here for lunch, reasonably priced and good service from the team, plus the food was good. Location is convenient too. Would definitely recommend.
