Famous Dubai trick...add sugar to juice. This allows restaurants to use less fruit in the juice and just at water. I ordered a fresh juice and pizza. The juice was bland as was the pizza.

Beautiful decorated restaurant, wide selection of food, nice appetizers, excellent Italian pasta and pizza. The only problem I had was the seats, which were not very comfortable. But in general, my family enjoyed the meal.

Today we ordered a lamb shank which arrived after less than 10 minutes, it was rich but dry. My pizza took 20 minutes and arrived when the shank was almost gone and what was left was cold. As a couple... More

We decided to try a pizza and I was tricked by the wood oven. Honestly I can say that they have no clue how to make a decent pizza. Everything was just not right from the dough to the ingredients (you don't put oregano with mozzarella...never!) I know Dubai is not Naples but there are other places where you can... More

My review won't be too descriptive, but the lamb leg I've eaten here was the best!!! It was really the best lamb that can be cooked! It's tenderness was like fish. Anywhere else I've eaten lamb it felt more rough. But this... Whenever I go there again, it will be the first restaurant and dish that I'll order. Thanks!

Visited Al Forno on several occasions, and always loved it. I have recently changed my fav cuisine, from an Asian country now it is Italian and no, not the fast food Italian. Real food Italian...trying to also get the hubby on my side... succeeded on this occasion - let's see how far I succeed! Al Forno does it really good... More
