Located in the heart of Takapuna just a short walk from the beach, Al Forno is the perfect restaurant for all occasions.

The atmosphere is inviting and warm, with rolling hills and Italian vineyards painted on the walls and a large wood-fire oven taking centre stage. Devour delicious wood-fired pizzas with an authentic Italian flavour from the wood-fired oven. A variety of toppings are on offer, with flavours and combinations to suit all. Mouth-watering seafood, meat and vegetarian pasta, 21-day- aged steak and free-range chicken dishes are on the menu too.

The wine list boasts all the essentials from Italy, Australia and New Zealand. There’s also beers, spirits and an enticing list of cocktails (hint: there’s no better way to round off an Italian meal than an expertly made espresso martini).

After-dinner entertainment is an easy choice, as Takapuna’s beloved cinema is conveniently located above the restaurant!
