Here at Al Forno we are committed to providing a variety of delicious food choices for all of our guests, and we pride ourselves on our ability to modify our menu items.

We have prepared this guide to assist our customers with food sensitivities or allergies and to help identify ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction. Whilst we make every attempt to provide accurate allergen information, our menu items are freshly prepared in our kitchen and there is always a risk of cross contact with other allergens. This is true even when a menu item is specifically ordered to remove an allergen ingredient. Please keep this in mind when making a menu selection dependent upon our allergen information.

Please ensure you tell us if you, or any member of your party, have any food sensitivities or allergies. This can help reduce the risk and ensure your dining experience is an enjoyable one.

If you or a member of your party is severely allergic, please let one of our managers help you with your selection.
