Nice ambience, slow but friendly service. Garlic pizza bread was burnt but promptly replaced. Portions are big and small pizza is more than sufficient for an adult. Food quality is average

Al Forno Putney is a heaven of authentic Sicilian & Italian cuisine and carefully selected wines. You'll find traditional Sicilian dishes such as Penne alla Norma, Caponata, Scaloppine agli agrumi, Panelle & Arancinette. The restaurant is owned and run by Peppe & his team, who have created a warm and friendly atmosphere. At the end of your meal you can enjoy a complimentary glass of Limoncello. We look forward to welcoming you!
