For years, this small Salt Lake Italian Ristorante has been serving wonderful and affordable Italian cuisine.

The Cuisine...
Start with the Vongole Al Pomodoro - (Manila clams sauteed with garlic tomato & herbs), It's delicious! More than 18 different pasta dishes are awaiting you. Freshly baked rolls served at the beginning of the meal are perfect for sopping up the flavorful sauces of the hearty dishes. The Spinach Cannelloni is rich and decadent with creamy Asiago sauce, and the Linguini Fradiavolo are two of my favorites. The popular Vitello Marsala (veal medallions with sauteed mushrooms in a marsala wine sauce) is another must try.

The Atmosphere...
Don't let the strip mall exterior fool you, Al Forno's buzzes with activity. It is decorated with a casual flair and while it can feel like it is a bit crowded, the small booths are perfect for up to four and quiet conversation.

Downtown Location...
Al Forno's is located just five blocks east of Temple Square on 500 East between 2nd & 3rd South, and just a short walk from the heart of Salt Lake's business and hotel district.

Here's some of what's been written up about us...
