I hate to write a bad review about this place because the food is really good from what I've had but a few days ago I had placed an order totaling over $50 around 8pm. Thinking that only an hour had passed I called them to check and see if the delivery was on its way, when really it had been 2 hours since I placed my order. The person on the phone told me he was very sorry and would credit some of my items. He promised I would receive everything in 20 minutes. Going on 3 hours (it was now 11pm) after my order, I called them back to see what the issue was. The girl on the phone was very confused and kept asking me if I got everything except for the sodas I ordered and I kept having to explain to her that the entire delivery never came. She then handed the phone over to the guy who promised it would be delivered in 20 minutes after the first time I called. He said he didn't know what to tell me and that he had given the food to the delivery guy. I then asked him to contact the delivery guy but he told me he was off the clock. He then asked me "what do you want me to do, make your entire order again"? At that point I was so fed up that I told him to cancel the entire order and credit everything back.
I understand that it was fairly late on a weekend when I ordered but it shouldn't have been so difficult to ensure the order got delivered after making a customer wait 2 hours before they were notified that it was never received. What probably happened was that they forgot to make the order altogether but when you promise a customer you will fix the problem, you should follow through on that. I shouldn't have been made to feel like I was causing such an imposition calling after closing hours to attempt to have the issue resolved.
Even though they have good food, I am extremely reluctant to continue ordering from this restaurant if it's going to be that difficult to have it delivered in a reasonable time.

Unbelieveable. I placed an order before 9 PM. Almost 90 mins later I called (just now) to check on it. They first blamed Seamless, then discovered that they messed up and didn't prep the order. No apologies, nothing. I'm told I will get my order in about 20 minutes. That is around 11PM. TWO HOURS FOR FOOD? Had I not called it would never have come. The staff's passive aggression was astonishing.
I WISH I COULD REFUND MY TIP. I am considering NEVER ordering again from here.

The food is very good -- but on multiple occasions (tonight included), they messed up our order. While they're nice and apologetic, they make more mistakes than any other restaurant that I've ordered from on Seamless. It'd easily give them a 4, maybe 5 star rating if they simply sent the right order consistently.

Still waiting on food, but they pulled Bait & Switch on delivery time. Changed from 30-45 mins & after ordered confirmed switched to 60-75 mins.

Competent pizza with fresh quality ingredients and prompt delivery. My only gripe, and it is not an insignificant one, is the lack of crisp on the base. A surprising flaw given the brick oven preparation.

Always perfect. Incredible pizza, sauce is addictive!!, mushroom salad is so good... No one is ever disappointed when I suggest al Forno! I have even converted fellow neighbors :)

This was my first time ordering here and it was the absolute worst experience I've had ordering takeout. After waiting an hour and half for my order, I called to get an update on when to expect my food. They put me on hold for 15 minutes and then the call was disconnected. I called back and was put on hold for another 10 minutes. After all that waiting they told me my food wasn't even cooked yet. I would have canceled the order but they told me I had to cancel through Seamless. Bottom line: horrible customer service and not worth the hassle! I would not recommend this place to anyone. I'd give it zero stars if I could.

Delicious food but they can be slow. They messed up my order and it was not delivered for over 2 hours.

We ordered pizza for me and the kids, and salmon for my wife. The food was late arriving - around 80 mins instead of 45-60. I had to call them and it took 5 mins to find the order which doesn't inspire confidence. When it got here everything was in the cold - slightly warm range. Shame, because when warmed up it tasted nice but I shouldn't have to do that and it meant the salmon then tasted over cooked. Although I like the food, think I will try another pizza place

SO good! But once again feeding the kids snacks instead of food because they underestimated delivery time by 20-40 minutes. If you call they say it's on the way, yeah, right. That was another 20 minutes ago.... pretzels anyone?

Disgusting service. I order all the time and they often mess up my order but this was the last time. They never sent me an item and then told me they will not send it but will credit me then next time i ordered. The next time I ordered they actually lied to me and told me that even though my bill says $88 I will really be charged $78. They guaranteed when the statement on my credit card came it would say $78. When I called to tell them that that never happened the manager actually said to me that it is $9 and its not a big deal and I can take it up with seamless or get over it. Incredible.

The delivery time for this restaurant is terrible. Have waited for over an hour on several occasions. Would not order from here again as a result.

I have been trying to find an Italian restaurant on the UES that does penne ala vodka right, and I finally found one! They honored my request of making it without meat, and it was still hot and delicious! They also have quick delivery - it came faster than the delivery estimate!
Only downside - it's slightly more pricey than other Italian places in the area. But it's worth the money if you're craving some solid Italian! Portions are decently sized as well.

Ordered a pepperoni calzone and got a plain calzone. The food was hot and would've been pretty good had the order been correct.

Listed as 30-45 min wait and took 1.5 hours. Called to inquire and was given excuses rather than helpful customer service. very annoyed and in my view this is unacceptable. time to find a new pizza place

Fantastic pizza with real mozzarella, not the plasticky kind! Nice sauce - we do ask for it well done so the crust is crispy
Posted 2 years ago by Sandra M.
LOVE this place, especially the chicken francese, it comes in the most amazing lemon/butter sauce. The linguine vongole is also one of my favorites and you can never go wrong with the pizza.

The food was good the delivery was awful. I got a small cheese pizza and it took an hour and 20 minutes to show up. Yes, it was snowing outside but it wasn't a blizzard by any means. When I called to ask about where my pizza was (the delivery estimate was 30-45 minutes), they told me the delivery had left 25 minutes ago. You know what that means? It was room temperature when it got here. The only reason it's getting 4 stars is because it tastes delicious and in the end that's what matters the most.

Nice thin crust with just the right amount of sauce and fresh mozzarella. Would have liked a few more fresh basil leaves, but otherwise excellent. Fast delivery too.

Pizza and pastas are good, but not great, and are very expensive. If you want a gourmet-style pizza, it is not a bad choice. However, there are many comparable shops in the area at similar prices. Overall, it is nothing special.
