About Al Forno - Shepherd's Bush

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.

Food was decent, but unfortunately the service wasn’t that good, always in a rush , is a pity, small venue. But reasonable price, way cheaper than other restaurants in the area ...

Awful food with very little flavour. Mainly as the quality of ingredients is extremely cheap - it’s like going to a cheap pizza shop where they charge you a few quid. There is definitely nothing authentic about this place - definitely far from a good Italian.

Food very poor. Taste less, cold and bland. "Cocktail" tasted like fruit juice with barely any alcohol in it. Really disappointed with the food. The only saving grace was the waiter was nice and quite helpful. Sorry but I wouldn't go back here.
