Al Forno (Wimbledon)

This is a reply to the very first review about Al Forno.


I wonder at the timing of your ‘complaint’. Strikes me that it is 11 months late and made in the wrong place to the wrong audience.

Al Forno is a lively and vibrant venue patronised by a large and regular client base of all ages. If you’d been before, and knew its lively atmosphere yet wanted a quiet Christmas lunch why did you choose to go there ? Having been regular customers for years, I can say on behalf of my friends and myself that we have never once had cause to complain or even grumble amongst ourselves about the food or the friendly, lively and yet attentive service; on Christmas Day or any other occasion.

Suggest you give it another try, relax a little and enjoy the fun. Or of course, just stay at home and leave more table space available for people who don’t wait 11 months to complain about cheerful waiting staff.
