The beautiful sunset is just icing on the cake.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDefinitely necessary to getDefinitely necessary to get a reservation. It was very noisy but the service and food were excellent. We live in Santa Barbara and always go to Il Fornaio if we are in the area. The food is consistent and servings sufficient to satisfy our family of 4-6'5" men and me. The waiter's assistant was on the spot with more water, bread, olive oil, etc.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, as always. We'veWonderful, as always. We've come to set our expectations ridiculously high for Il Fornaio. Dine early to avoid the rush - the more crowded it gets, the less desirable the ambience, especially out on the patio due to the acoustics.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding TimeI took my wife, daughter, her husband and their 2 kids, ages 2 and 4, there for Easter Brunch.

Always with fantastic service.
My favorite is a bottle of "Sixth Sense" Red wine and the Cheese Plate.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOur experience was great -Our experience was great - Matthew (Matt) our server was delightful and Georgia, who has served me before, was lovely to come by and visit. Our meals were great while the noise was very loud! As we stayed quite late (diners that we are) it quieted down after 9pm.
I always enjoy this place and especially love that they have Gluten Free Pasta and other options.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMTi ... is short for TiramisuThe food, the service and the views were OUTSTANDING. The food and views are not to be outdone, but a special shout-out has to go to our server. He was very jovial, attentive, and helpful, and just for the heck of it, he served us a dish of Tiramisu, for free. We highly recommend Il Fornaio, and we will go back ... regularly!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI can not say enough greatI can not say enough great things about our Server, Angelo! He was quite wonderful. The food was beyond reproach and the wine was top notch. Great place for large parties.3/12/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional, as alwaysAfter several trips to this location, I've had to recalibrate my expectations to a higher level. I'd be shocked if my experience there on any given occasion was anything less than amazing.
