    The food and service, as always, at this establishment was fantastic. I would not hesitate to recommend it.

    The food was amazing, but the restaurant was super short staffed. I waited almost 30m to order food and another 20m to order desert and another 20m to pay. There was a lot of time wasted on just waiting. It wasn’t the guys fault as you could see they were really busy running around. It would have been better if there were more people working so customers could be served with more care. The music was also really loud.

    Never attend this restaurant on a Saturday night if you wish to be able to speak to fellow guests. Noise levels intolerable. Other nights are fine

    I am a repeat customer and decided to book a larger group of 7people for dinner at 7.30pm Saturday 4th May. We didn’t all arrive together and I explained that as one person had dropped out they could use the table for other customers. We were also happy to wait to order food. Once we were ready though, it seemed to take forever to get the waiters attention only to be told he could not take orders and only deliver them to tables. Once we were finally ready we ordered drinks. I was left to pour my own drink, and the bottle of water we asked for never arrived. We then needed to get the attention of one of the 3/4 waiters to order the food. Food arrived very quick (the pasta and pizza dishes for the already seated 5 people). For me the pizza was not up to the standards of previous pizza. The cheese was not melted enough and there was very little sausage slices. I am also not used to olives on a pizza with the stones still inside. I am not speaking on behalf of the other people about the food as they did not comment. We all commented about the poor service, waiting times and never once being asked if we were happy with our food, if we wanted anything else. We chose not to have dessert as we had already waiting a lot. Even trying to get our bill was difficult and the table who came after us was served their bill first. To get any of the staffs attention was unacceptable. We are not people who complain but I am not going recommend Al Forno in Putney. I was so disappointed by this visit as previous visits have been excellent. The usual staff were not present and this was my first visit at the weekend. Not all tables were full. It just made no sense to me!

    Service was excellent and very fast. Salad I've ordered was a huge portion and delicious. Wine was delicious as well. In my opinion, this is a friendly, pleasant place I'm going to visit it again as soon as I can.

    This is a popular local restaurant. Food is average, but, disappointingly, mine was served on a cold plate, so that the food cooled very quickly. Service was friendly and pleasant, but the very loud music inhibited conversation.

    We’ve been going to this pizzeria for years. SO MUCH BETTER than any other pizzeria and good value for money. Beautiful garlic bread with cheese, olives, pizzas ( unless there’s 4 of you don’t get a be large pizza, they’re enormous!) If it’s a relative’s birthday let them know when you book and they sing in Italian with musical instruments! Great place … Book now!
