The food was very good and the service excellent. It would be perfect if they had an al fresco dining section.

“Simply Sumptous”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2012

This is the greatest 'EXPAT FIND' for us. We have been in Singapore only a month now. We are from Norway and relocated here due to our job. We have been hunting for good eateries in East Coast since we live there and discovered this fantastic great restaurent. We were drawn to the restaurent as there was a long queue waiting to get in. We joined the queue too. A little while later there was still no table so the italian manager offered us wine at the bar. Nice Gesture!!!!
Food was simply great! We ordered spaghetti seafood which came wrapped in foil and of course their wood oven pizza. For the 2 hours we will there, the crowd was coming in almost non-stop and the staff were very fast with their service. It was truly enjoyable and we have been coming here almost every week now. Sundays are delivery days where we order their food and enjoy also at home. Cannot get enough of Al Forno. My wife and myself will highly recommend this restaurent to all who enjoy Authentic Italian food

“THE BEST ITALIAN RESTAURENT IN SINGAPORE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2012

Al Forno is the BEST ITAILIAN Restaurent in Singapore. Not only in Terms of Food but also in friendliness. We could not finish our food and straightaway their staff came to check if there was something wrong with the food. We acted upon our hungerness and had ordered too much of food that we couldnt complete. They volunteered to pack the food for us. This is the kind of detailed attention that is needed in service industry - anticipating customer needs.
Needless to say about the food, it was simply 'mama mia'. The pizza was great. I understand from my friends that they have added new varieties in the menu. Can't want to check it out

“This best Bro”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2012

Al Forno East Coast is a great restaurant for dates. family outings alike with a regular basis. Great service and good italian food. The Seafood Risotto is scrumptious with a rich selection of clams, prawns, squid in a tomato-based sauce. Amazing risoto, there pizzas are made on the spot and are typical Italian pizzas, not like they ones to get in Pizza Hut, and a great choice of pasta.
