Diner Reviews
  • "Il fornaio is always good. the food is consistently great and service very good. our waiter was new and told is we could not get a half glass of wine which was imcorrect and they were out of the pasta dish my husband wanted but otherwise it was very good."

  • "Il Fornaio used to be one of my favorite restaurants, but not anymore. The bread this time was stale, the service was inattentive and slow, the food was mediocre. We were given complimentary desserts, but it could not make up for a very disappointing evening."

  • "We had never been here before and decided to spend a pleasant evening out and that is what we had. Our main dishes were fine, nothing outstanding. Their homemade pasta was delicious, but dishes were not particularly mouthwatering. Vegetables were tough and very tart. Grilled seafood tasted too much of the grill and nothing else. Dessert was wonderful-individual flavors and really a treat! Service was outstanding and despite the fact that our main dishes were a little wanting we'll be back to give it another try."

  • "My three girlfriends and I had dinner here at 8:30pm on a Friday. The place was pretty much empty. They served us cold bread, and brought me the wrong meal. We did the wine flight, where we got 3 half glasses of 3 wines, but the staff never cleared the table during the entire meal. We ended up having a very large area of the table taken up by about 10-15 wine glasses. The tab was about $140 for 4 people, so not cheap, I just expected something a little better."

  • "Food is decent. Service is hit or miss. On this night a huge miss. The waiter tried to impress us with poor Italian which was a joke since his service, unlike actual Italian service, was horrible."

  • "Took 20 minutes to get drinks and it wasnt really that busy. I had the special, penne with a red sauce and meatballs. Not real impressive and definitely not very flavorful. Minestrone and the bread were both good."

  • "What a lovely dining experience. The ambiance is wonderful and the food excellent! Very relaxed. Our waiter was very attentive, friendly and .helpful with our choices for what to order. This will be one of our special occasion places in the future. There is a really nice patio dining area that we are looking forward to trying when the weather warms up a bit."

  • "We had great food, but just didn't allow enough time prior to an event, so we couldn't really enjoy lingering over coffee and dessert. Service a bit too rushed initially- all of party was not even there and waiter was rushing us to order! Otherwise, we will definitely go back- really nice and great food!"

  • "It seems, like with a lot of restaurants these days, their is not much chicken (or other protein) with the pasta and chicken entrees."

  • "Il Fornaio is a solid Italian restaurant and chain with this location being quite good. The atmosphere is terrific with a high-end look and feel with many Italian style touches to provide a terrific ambience for a nice dinner for a special event, family dinner, birthday and anniversary. This is a safe selection -- hard to go wrong."

  • "Food and service were very good. Hadn't been there for the past few years and had forgotten how 'energetic ' the place could be. Noise level and proximity of next table made communication difficult among our two couples. Mentioned it on our way out and maître d suggested that we be sure to ask for a quite table for our next reservation."

  • "WORST CUSTOMER SERVICE EVER! The waiter forgot about us until we spoke with a manger and then he suddenly appeared! I did not sign my receipt fast enough for the waiter and he came by and grabbed the pen out of my hand because he needed it. Guess I should not have signed my bill after all."

  • "Over the years, we have dined at many restaurants during Restaurant Week and I believe Il Fornaio was the best we have experienced. From the helpful hostess, knowledgeable waiter and attentive table bussers - the whole staff was great. The RW menu had a nice selection of starters, entrees and desserts. Our food was plentiful, delicious and not overcooked like many of the meals we have had during RW (where they offer 2 selections and seem to have precooked all the meals). Il Fornaio was not overbooked, so we were able to have a leisurely dinner, instead of being seated late, quickly served and rushed out like we have been at so many of the restaurants. We brought some friends who are new to the Denver area and they were impressed."

  • "Our food was wonderful! Service left a little to be desired, unfortunately. Although we arrived early for a 5:30 reservation and had asked for a booth, the hostess never acknowledged our request and sat us at a table in a back corner room. Mind you, the restaurant was pretty empty at this time. I didn't make a big stink about it, because our table wasn't awful, just not what we'd requested. Also, it took our server almost 1/2 hour to acknowledge we were even there...must have been that back corner room. :("

  • "The plant behind the bar where we were seated was full of cobwebs. We notified the manager on duty who indicated he was filling in while the regular manager was off for the night. I’ve dined here before but only for lunch. The price of the dinner meals seemed a bit steep. If the dining room is dirty, what is the kitchen like? I will most likely not return to the restaurant."

  • "We live in Evergreen so it is completely across town,but so worth the drive. We have been there twice. Both times were amazing...romantic ambiance,greAt staff,melt-in-your-mouth food."

  • "Our meal was served a little to quickly. Perhaps this was due to restaurant week and they were very busy. We didn't feel rushed however."

  • "Not the most amazinh italian food but reasonably priced and tasty. My husband and I went on valentines day and surprisingly they wernt too busy. We didn't even finish our appetizer before our meals came so we felt a bit rushed."

  • "Everything was very good, as expected, with this evening. We were seated promptly even though their phones were very busy. The restaurant is very stylish and looked great. Our server was attentive but not overbearing. Overall the meal was close to five stars. If my seafood dish had a little more character it would have gotten the fifth star. Being out of two items ( a wine and dessert) didn't enhance the rating. I thought the prices are fair and the portions good size, not huge but ample by all means. This is one of those restaurants that we always like and is close to home but for some reason we don't seem to frequent often enough. It is a great place to ho and sait at the bar to enjoy an app or two. The bartenders are always great."

  • "Booked for Valentine's since every other normal dining place for us was booked. Quickly got to our table, service was fast and to the point but the place is missing one thing: Good Food. Ordered Ravioli, undercooked. Wife ordered Salmon which was ok but the potato side failed. Desserts are wheeled in on a display table that looks like it was bought from a flea market 10 years ago. Rolling in desserts that have been sitting on the wonky push cart for hours does not appeal to me at all. I guess a personal preference. Overall it was most definitely not worth the $100 we paid for the dinner overall. Experience was about the same you would get in Olive garden, just Olive Garden food is cheaper and better."

  • "My husband and I ate here on Valentine's Day and despite the business of the Holiday, the service was excellent. We absolutely loved the atmosphere especially for a romantic holidy. We were seated at an excellent table by the window and were brought bread quickly. The food came out quickly as well and the server and the busboy were on top of things. We tried their 3 course tasting of Umbria which overall was very good. Though some of the courses were not as amazing as I was expecting. My husband and I tried their 3 flights of wine taking the suggested pairings with each course, however the wine was quite generic and nothing to write home about. Overall we enjoyed ourselves and might return again."
