It was fabulous. – I had my son's rehearsal dinner on Friday. It was fabulous.
The food was excellent. The staff were very professional and friendly. We had a wonderful time. I would highly recommend IL Fornaio.
I like the fresh bread they have.
The pastas are always good.the calamari appetizer is very nice also.
Pizza was really good – the pizza was really good and the delivery was fast
Love the monthly specials. Get a regional festival card to have even more fun and win a trip to Italy! I love this place and the wait staff are so great, especially Bella!
Great service, pretty good food. I'm a regular here - love the butternut squash ravioli. The cocktails are also great.
Chef Lalo is a super star. If you get a chance attend a wine paring dinner. They are really fun. On a summer night their patio is really beautiful. Often my husband and I will sometimes just hang out at the bar and take advantage of their bar/happy hour menu. Many items for just $3.00 plus drink specials. The bartenders are all really nice.
Delicious Lasagna – The food at Il fornaio is consistenly delicious. I had the lasagna with the bechemel sauce, the beet salad and the tirmisu and all of it was great. The service is excellent as well. The experience is so wonderful at this restaurant that one takes it for granted. The Burlingame location is also fantastic.
Consistently Excellent – Pizza or Pasta, Grilled Chicken or Fish, Il Fornaio always delivers a delicious meal, perfectly prepared with delicious flavors.
Recently, I've been taking advantage of the Passport where each month the chef features cuisine from a region of Italy. I know they've been doing this for years but I just started taking advantage of it. The only drawback is if you miss one month you cannot qualify for the grand drawing which is a trip to Italy.
It's taken me some time to appreciate Il Fornaio since I've been more trendy in past, but now I only want consistently delicious quality Italian Restaurant.
Delicious food & great service – I've dined here many times and have always had an excellent experience! The menu is creative and there is always something different, I rarely eat the same thing twice between the daily specials & their montly regional menus. The staff is knowledgable & friendly, they know the food and definitely can give suggestions. The wines are fantastic and the list gets updated fairly regularly.
Can't cook fish, or risotto – First time there was a total bust. My fish was overcooked, my wife's dish was just "ok" and the couple we ate with had a similar experience with food either overcooked or not that tasty. The soup was bland and frankly I've had tastier meals at Pasta Pomador at 1/3 the price. I was so bummed I had to send my fish back, and even then it was just a little less terrible. Oh, and one more thing where is the alcohol in my drink? 4 people, 8 drinks, 4 apet's, 4 main - $250 w tip - what a waste.
