We have been taking the ride down to Providence 3-4 times a year for about 40 years and rarely have been disappointed. This latest visit was just prefect, as always. My wife and I shared a wood grilled pizza, one of 5 choices. She had veal bolognese pasta and I had the duck confit with cherries. Both were outstanding.
One of the treats at this time of year is the cherry almond tart for two. If it is on the menu (or any of its cousins) order it.

Dined here with business group in private dining room. All of the food -- from pizza to pasta -- was outstanding. Service was excellent.

I'm almost certain even the tables and chairs probably taste amazing at Al Forno. There is nothing on their menu, that isn't so good, you're audibly moaning. You can't help yourself. You will embarrass yourself there. You just can't help yourself. They do not take reservations, so just show up, if there's a wait, WAIT, it's WORTH EVERYTHING! This is Italian Cooking from the Gods.

Each and every morsel offered at Al Forno's is sensational. For simple enjoyment:
sit at the bar, relish a pizza and salad, and maybe a little dessert (order in advance as all desserts are made-to-order) You'll remember the succulence forever and a day. Seriously!
