Al Forno's, Middlesbrough

Written by
Al Forno, Middlesbrough

I wasn't sure whether I could be bothered to write another Italian restaurant review but Al Forno is worth a mention particularly as it has recently opened the new Bar Al Forno in Darlington and they do make a formidable bolognese but more of that later.

The Middlesbrough site is ideally situated near the corner of Southfield and Linthorpe Roads and it's a big, friendly, spacious place where so many Italians are cramped and intense.

Arriving at 6pm we have the run of the happy hour and the full menu so are spoilt for choice.

Al Forno offers a mix of restaurant staples alongside a selection of their own signature dishes.
