Private Parties


If you have ever been to our restaurants before you will know that we are like a huge family here at Al Forno, we like to treat all our customers with the same attitude as our friends and family. With Al Forno Express its no different, for private parties we offer only the best service and food possible and we make sure we get it right for you at the very beginning of the organisation right through to completion of the event.

 We specialise in events at your home, providing cocktail masterclasses and even cooking masterclasses with our very own Michelin trained executive chef who will teach you all you need to know dish by dish, great for parties and something different! We can also deliver a  full food and drinks service for your guests so you do not have to lift a finger. Also this year has been so popular for us with outdoor BBQ events, all received really well and so much repeat customers.

We can also take all the hardship out of the simplest of events by proving a simple drop off buffet for you and all within budget too.

 Please contact us to see what we can offer.

Had a fantastic meal with my family today. Hadn't been for a while but was delighted that the very high standards are being maintained.

Can you believe we travelled all the way from Chicago to have this Sticky Toffee Pudding?! And it was everything we dreamed of. Staff was incredibly polite and friendly on top of it. Thanks to Maaz Rahman for the recommendation!
