Escaping the Royal Wedding VIII: Acclaimed Italian in Liverpool

While in Liverpool I decided to visit Il Forno, considered by the Times as one of the top ten authentic Italian restaurants, importing ingredients from Italy, such as their cheeses are sourced from Salerno, their cured meats are from Parma, and the olive is produced in Basilicata. Their objective makes you have two great pleasure food and wine.

The Place

The Menu

Arrived to the place and was in a mood for a pizza, even though they have a great selection of Italian dishes. My selection was the pizza calzone, a unique creation of the place, half calzone half pizza, tomato, mozzarella, and spicy salami on the inside, and tomato, mozzarella, ham, and mushrooms on the outside.

The actual "Forno"

The Pizza Calzone, Half Pizza Half Calzone

Excellent food, good and traditional flavours, great service, all these in a relax and friendly  atmosphere. If you are in The Pool and are craving for pizza this is the place t go.

Calzone always reminds me Seinfeld episode “The Calzone” where George Steinbrenner is completely hook with the calzones of Paisano’s.

Mr. Steinbrenner: That's right, do you want to say it again? I'll say it again. I hadn't had a pimple since I was eighteen and I don't care that you don't believe me or not. And how's this. Your fired. Okay you are not, I am just a little hungry. Where's Costanza with my calzone? It's 1:15, he's late, that smell, I have to call you back. Costanza! He's in the building, Costanza is in the building and he's not in this office, Costanza! I'll get you.
