My husband and I regularly visit il forno particularly for their lunchtime £5 pizza/pasta deal. We have never been disappointed with the food- it is excellent quality. The pizzas are the best I have tasted in any restaurant outside of Italy!!! The pasta meals are enormous and the quality is superb. The pizzas are large and have a lovely crisp base and just the right amount of toppings.
We have always had excellent service from all the staff at il forno. Usually we are with our 2 1/2 yr old daughter and she is treated so well by everyone there. They all talk to her and even helped her pick out an ice cream she wanted. They were more than happy to offer extra plates so that we could share our meal with her. They provide high chairs and good quality baby changing facilities.
As someone who enjoys eating out I have to say that this is now one of my top restaurants in the city. Even at full price a la carte it's worth it. Great atmosphere and huge wood fired oven. You cannot beat £5 at lunchtime on a Saturday for a freshly made and delicious pizza. Try it next time you are in town. Don't bother with pizza express (which is twice the price at Saturday lunchtime)
Overall, it's fantastic. Try it.
