“well worth avisit”
Reviewed 31 January 2014

visited here last week with family, the atmosphere was great! Nice and relaxed, our waiter Salvatore was excellent and knew the menu well, all 6 of us has different meals, I would definetly recomend the gralic bread and the carbonnara, very authentic. The big open pizza oven is very impressive and seeing your food being prepared is part of the experience. The meal was so good we returned the following night, we were half expecting for it not to be as good but we were wrong! The manager remembered us and greeted us warmly, our waiter Luis was helpful without being intrusive and the food was outstanding. They also had an earlybird menu which was very good vale. This is th ereal deal as far as Itallian food goes and myself and my family would recommend it to anyone, I can't wait to visit again.

“Awful customer service”
Reviewed 28 January 2014

Was here for a birthday with a big group of people (around about 12) and was placed to the back of the restaurant. First of all the drinks were not what we ordered and it took a while to be able to get the attention of someone to change the drinks and even after that we were waiting a while to get it. Baring in mind we were sat there and ordered by half 8 we didn't receive our starter until an about 45 minutes later and then didn't receive out main meal until a hour (10.15) after that! considering it was my first time visiting this restaurant i will not be hurrying back to this restaurant any time soon.However Overall the food was okay but not the best.

“Amazing food amazing service”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

Il Forno was recommended by our hotel receptionist and I have to say we were not disappointed. In fact we had dinner there on both nights of our stay. There were six in our party and not one of us had a negative thing to say about the magnificent food. The service was also excellent. I have to commend the management on their staff our waiters Salvadore on the first night and Louis on the second night couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely be returning there on my next visit to Liverpool.

“Perfect evening”
Reviewed 24 January 2014 via mobile

My good friend visiting from New Zealand requested an evening at an Italian restaurant where we could enjoy good food,good wine and good conversation . Happy to report we got all three and service to match. There was a very generous portion of chicken livers to start and the pasta to follow was perfect. No room for dessert but a great cappuccino to finish. He's coming back later in the year & Il Forno will be on the menu again!

“Superb”
Reviewed 23 January 2014

Lovely lunch time meal.

Pizza's were exceptional! Baked as you would expect a traditional Italian pizza to be baked, with good quality ingredients.

There is a lunchtime special on all pizzas and pasta dishes...£5 which is excellent value.

Restaurant surroundings superb! I would highly recommend it!
