About Al Forno


Our Darlington restaurant opened in 2012 and it is split over three floors. The restaurant is based on the ground and the 1st floor and the basement is the home of Bar Forno Cocktail & Champagne Bar.

We are very proud that we are the oldest Italian restaurant in Darlington and some of our staff have been with us since we opened.

The restaurant opens at 11:30am, daily and we have a range of menus including the NEW lunch & a la carte menu plus we have a children’s menu & Sunday lunch is available.

View our menus online and to book a table, please call 01325 466585 or use our online form.

In terms of access, the main entrance has steps. We do have flat access to the side of the building but this is quite narrow and we’re unable to accommodate large wheelchairs. There is a toilet on that same foor but not wheelchair accessible. We do not have a lift but if you wish to book a table and require the area at the rear of the restaurant, please let us know when booking.
