A charming spot off Wimbledon Broadway, Al Forno is an Italian restaurant with a comforting Anglo twist. The buzzy neighbourhood favourite is rustic and comfortable, with pots and pans hanging from the ceiling and a roaring brick oven. Flour-covered chefs throw in dough after dough, and pull out crispy, bubbling pizzas. Waiters sprint across the restaurant carrying the hefty-looking pizzas while diners watch on, waiting for their turn. The pastas are consistent and satisfying, but the move is to get a large pizza and refuse to share it with anyone. The British influences come through when you move on to dessert which are just as much a main event. The banoffee is a slice of excellent biscuity craftsmanship and warm custard is a necessity with the apple pie. As is a booking—this place is always packed out.
