lovely service, and beyond belief flavors of oven roasted ribs.
The ambiance was quaint and watching the chefs prepare the food was delightful.
It is located in a romantic and quiet area.

I am not easily impressed, especially in Montevideo, where I have lived for six years and where even the "best" restaurants underwhelm. Not so Al Forno. Subtlely and sophistication are the watchwords. Our red tuna was exquisite, perfectly complemented by balsamic reduction, mango and pineapple. Dessert was a wonderful surprise of hot and cold: apple, grapefruit, banana and strawberry in a piping hot cast iron skillet, accompanied by citrus granite. The wine list showed a quest for something out of the ordinary. And the two dozen high-end cookbooks in the bookcase reflected the owner/chef's deep love for his art. Priced well for the high quality. Service unobtrusive but consumately professional. We will definitely return. BTW, comfortable chairs! A detail few restaurants pay attention to.

Really nice small gourmet restaurant with great food. Not cheap but worth a visit. Nice little two story place. The delicia dessert was as advertised. Yum.

We ate lunch here one afternoon. Bruno and Gino, our hosts, could not have been nicer. We had meat and vegetarian dish and drinks and we enjoyed the venue a lot. It was a relaxing experience.
