Il Forno Launches Luxurious New Private Dining Area

Il Forno, Liverpool’s popular award-winning restaurant, has launched a beautiful new Private Dining Area.

The luxurious space has been created for large parties, private celebrations, birthdays, baby showers, intimate weddings as well as for corporate businesses and board meetings, with the room complete with a private bar, opulent wine wall and projector.

Il Forno’s Private Dining Area will also serve as a backdrop to bespoke masterclasses and wine tastings complete with Italian small plates.

Seating 22, Il Forno’s new space further adds to its offering within the 150-seat venue, with the launch of a special A La Carte group dining menu for guests. Those booking the room will have three hours minimum to enjoy the space with the Private Dining Area available to book for £1200 minimum spend.

Il Forno has been a firm favourite with the people of Liverpool since 2004 when it established its home on Duke Street.

Renowned for delicious pasta dishes, handmade pizza from its bespoke oven, authentic Italian delicacies, its signature Sunday roast, and its vast selection of wines from around the world, beers and cocktails, Il Forno plays host to the perfect backdrop for couples, groups of friends and families.

By day, guests booking Il Forno’s Private Dining Area, can choose between Afternoon Tea, Bottomless Brunch and their signature A La Carte menus.

And by night, guests can choose from their delicious £65 per person A La Carte menu complete with a choice of 10 different starters including scallops, cod cheek, risotto with pancetta wrapped shrimp, and egg yolk with parmesan and truffle, and 10 different main dishes including fillet steak, lobster, cauliflower steak and duck breast with orange to name a few. The menu is complete with a selection of handmade desserts including traditional Italian tiramisu, chocolate fondant and affogato, a complimentary glass of Prosecco on arrival and Italian bread and Gordola olives to share.

Paolo Cillo, owner and Executive Chef at Il Forno, explained: “For years, we’ve been hosting large tables for our guests and have been frequently asked for private dining at Il Forno. The opening of our beautiful new Private Dining Area allows for guests to celebrate in their own dedicated space that’s complete with its own bar area and a selection of the finest wines. We’ve invested over £120,000 into making the space as opulent and beautiful as it can be.

“The Private Dining Area is perfect for celebrations, birthdays, baby showers and larger tables, but it’s also been designed for businesses and corporates. Board meetings, breakfast mornings and entertaining clients will all be possible within Il Forno’s new space that gives our guests privacy, with the same flair and excellence that we’re known for.”
