Great food in a beautiful atmosphere – Consistantly delicious, fresh Italian food from different regions of Italy. Kind of pricey, but worth it for the wonderful food and the great atmosphere. Great for dates and special occasions.

Not too impressed – Have dined here several times and each time I come back I keep thinking it will be better. Learned my lesson on the 3rd visit.

Service is terribly slow. Food is not all that to rave about. Bread basket has a good variety. Some of the specials are misrepresented - salmon fettucine - I thought would be fettucine with salmon on top was actually salmon noodles - not tasty at all. No taste. Noodles seem to be undercooked at times, chewy.

A bit pricey and if I am going to spend money on a good Italian dinner I would stick to Biba's.

Our Butts were sore!!! – I am from out of the area, I used City Search to find a delicious yet romantic restaurant for my boyfriend and I to spend our 1 year anniversary. We arrived starving! I could not wait to eat! Unfortunately, we ended up spending the next hour and half eating our whole basket of bread, because it took forever for our appetizer, salad, and entree to arrive, and by the time we got our entree, we had gone through 2 baskets of bread! We were so full from the anticipation of our entree and of course from all the bread. We finally were done and by the time we left, we had spent a good 2 1/2 hours sitting! Our butts were sooo sore! While the service and the food was delicious, I would have to say we will not be visiting any time soon.

Friendly staff, over-rated food – Il Fornaio is a nice place to go for drinks after work. If you like Vladi, you may spot him and some of the other King's at this place but don't expect the best in Italian food. Order anything except the pasta dishes and you'll do fine!

Beautiful ambiance – Although it's a chain restaurant, it offers beautiful yet comfortable decor. It also offers an exciting menu.

Italian at it's best – Il Fornaio has combined elegence with the comfort of family. The employee's at Il Fornaio seem to know how to be professional and freindly at the same time. The food is consistently good and you can always find the perfect wine to go with this great Italian food. They have created a menu that will satisfy everyones hunger needs. I must say that I am most impressed with how they take on such large groups with such ease. They even have private rooms for those who need or want some privacy. Il Forniao has thought of everything to please anyone in any situation.

WONDERFUL Italian Food – There food is delicious. Not only is it delicious, you get the feeling like your in an Italian Restaurante in Italy. The service and waiters do there best service you and get your food to you on time. The price of the food is GREAT for what you get. I recommend that you try Il Fernaio.
