Group Bookings

Group Bookings

If you are planning a night out or event with a group in Takapuna and think an Italian restaurant will be a good option, give us a call. Italian is a great choice as there will be something on our menu for everyone in your group. If someone doesn’t like pasta, they can order pizza, if another person doesn’t eat meat, they can order a seafood or vegetable dish – the choices are wide but always delicious.

Our group bookings are for parties of 10 or more. We can’t accommodate many group bookings at the same time, however, so make sure you book early, particularly at busy times of the year. Give us a call now on 09 488 0179 to discuss your requirements.

Al Forno is the perfect setting for your next special event, from birthdays to wedding anniversaries all special occasions are made even more memorable at Al Forno.

Due to the layout of our restaurant, and our style of service, there are restrictions to the number of groups we can accommodate, and the seating times available, so please ensure you book early.

We recommend you consider one of the group menu options which includes all the Al Forno favorites. View our group menus here. A group booking is considered 10 or more guests.

Group booking terms and conditions:


Final confirmation of guests numbers will be required 48 hours prior to arrival.  Please call us on 09-488-0179 to confirm.

All guests are required to order one main meal if they are not dining on one of our group menus. 

If no guests have arrived after 30 mins of the reserved time the group will be considered a No-Show and the table may be resold.  It is therefore highly recommended you call us on 09-488-0179 if you are running late. 

To ensure we do not impact on other diners we will commence service for the group within 15 mins of the booked arrival time even if all guests have not arrived. For this reason, we recommend you remind your friends and family to arrive on time.
