Shepherd Bush's secret is now out in the open, a very small and cozy place with extremely delicious Italian food. Great service and attractive prices.

We enjoyed an excellent lunch at Al Forno in a cold day of November 2016. Their menu is very good, the food was very tasteful and the services was pleasant. The restaurant has outdoor heat so we stayed outside (badly being smokers...) and we had very good time. Bravissimo!

Inedible tasteless Risotto. Cooked long grain rice, some spinach, defrosted prawns and sweet corn mixed together and heated in microwave. Very disappointed. Used to be okay a few years ago. Toilets smelly and dirty. Staff (non Italian) helpful though... Cheap... You get what you pay for...

Needed a pre-gig meal, and this place, although not highly rated, offered the cuisine we were after, and was a stones throw from the venue (O2 SBE). I had a garlic bruschetta, with anchovy and melted mozzarella topping to accompany my Pollo Milanese. My wife had a pizza. Food was tasty enough, without being memorable. Red house wine was a...

Visited this place as it seemed to have OK reviews on trip advised, also VERY cheap… took the wife out for a meal but my god, this place should not be allowed to be classed as Italian (in all fairness it is embarrassing to Italian food). The owner is NOT of Italian decent not is a chef here! They have... More

Terrible. Poor services, frozen food. Anti-pasti consisted of hot dog, frozen garlic bread, olives and iceberg lettuce. Mega meat pizza, had leftover morning bacon, hot and chicken on it - nothing mega about it! Wedges we're tasteless and frozen. They took starters order, served it, we ate it, then had to ask if we could order mains??? Oh they also... More

Been eating here for nearly 8 years and the food and staff are brilliant. Moved away from Shepherd's Bush but I still make sure I call in anytime I am near. Price is also very reasonable! 5*

Pizza is good ( by the way forget about Italian pizza) even is the name "al forno" makes you think you will eat an Italian Pizza. It's definitely NOT an Italian pizza but isn't bad (for London) Prices are so cheap also.
