About Al Forno Kingston

We can all be forgiven, on those dank, dark days trodding around London, for pining for warmer climes. Thankfully, right on Kingston High Street, Al Forno offers respite not just in the warmth of its atmosphere, but in the warming comfort of its classy but authentic Italian food, made like mamma would, but served in style. Of course there are delicious, traditional Neapolitan pizzas coming out of a roaring brick oven, as there should be. But this hotbed of Italian tastes in Kingston upon Thames goes much further, through a lip-smacking selection of fresh seafood, rich meat dishes perfected over time, and desserts so pretty you won’t want to touch them - but temptation will win. All of this enjoyed with fine wine and good company in a charming dining room of wooden beams, brick walls, tiled floors and old-timey tables. It’s hard to find a better escape than Al Forno.

Food, service and surroundings were all perfect, great for catching up with old friends. A real lazy Sunday afternoon pleasure/treat. It's a hidden gem, oozing authenticity once you're through the door. We'll definitely go again!

Great restaurant. Very considerate to our needs as we had a young baby. Generous portions and no pressure to finish quickly. Also noticed Italian students at opposite table which is a good sign the food is authentic.

Lovely food! Great service, efficient and very polite! Great choice of starters, mains and desserts. Large pizza really is large but if you're a big eater you'll be able to finish it!

Good food with a friendly and authentic atmosphere. Prices are reasonable and Peroni is served by the pint, not daft little bottles. Highly recommended if you're in the area.

We had a lovely meal at a very readorable price. The only slight negative was too much blue cheese on the salad making it a little too rich.
