Providence RI 02903
On South Main Street in the heart of Providence, R.I., Al Forno offers a quintessential Italian dining experience for those who can’t afford the flight to Italy. Husband-and-wife owner-chefs George Germon and Johanne Killeen received the Insegna del Ristorante Italiano from the Italian government, a rare honor for Americans, attributable to their informed passion for pasta along with their invention of the grilled pizza. Their grilled pizza margarita, with fresh herbs, pomodoro, two cheeses, and extra-virgin olive oil, is probably their most notable pie and made The Daily Meal's list of the America's 35 Best Pizzas.— Jess Kapadia

Birthplace of Grilled Pizza.
Their calamari is THE BEST in town. I've ordered it from other places and does not beat the satisfaction of Alforno's calamari.
Dessert is what makes this place awesome
Cheaters lasagna is the way to go!
The calamari grilled pizza is a must-order!
I had the Duck with Kumquat Marmalade. It was delicious! Definitely should try the cookie pallet for desert if you go in a big group, they are heaven :)
This place has been called the birthplace of grilled pizza, but its also loved for its Dirty Steak — a New York strip laid directly on the embers.
Are you kidding me? This place is fantastic. Get the cinnamon ice cream sandwich and thank me later.
Best Italian I've ever had. Always look forward to coming to this place when I'm in town!!!
Best in Rhode Island
A trip to Rhode Island isn’t complete without a meal at Al Forno — an authentic Italian menu that uses all locally produced goods.
The birthplace of grilled pizza, and the Dirty Steak — a New York strip laid directly on the embers, yielding an amazing crust.
This place is legit. One of my top ten pizza experiences of all time.
You must try the Clams Al Forno
