Description

Summary: Italian cuisine with a New England twist.

Al Forno, a beloved restaurant in the heart of the city, offers a unique dining experience combining the rich culinary traditions of Italy and Southern France with the fresh produce of New England. Patrons can indulge in a variety of homemade pastas, grilled pizzas, and Tuscany-style dishes, all emphasizing seasonal ingredients. The upstairs dining room, complete with a warm fireplace, provides a cozy atmosphere and a scenic river view. Although the establishment operates without reservations, leading to potential waits, the food's purity of taste and the adherence to culinary roots make it worth the wait. The professional service, attention to detail, and a well-curated wine list ensure a memorable meal.
