  • "Il Fornaio takes their concept, idea, specialty and service to meet YOUR need and to another level compared to any restaurant in the region. They really set the standard and bar very high! They care about the customer, the service is outstanding and they stand out in comparison to any competitor or restaurant in the area for that matter. Their concept, idea and specialty is Italian food and Italian food from different regions of Italy. They do not only meet it but the effort to make you enjoy the difference is very clear. They go way and beyond and make it a wonderful experience. I was there on a first date and they went way and beyond to make it a great, first class experience. I will recommend to visit and I promise you will be amazed!"

  • "we received excellant service. The food was really good. A very relaxing meal and a great menu. We will be back and will recommend it to friends!"

  • "Prices here have gone up in the past few years (as many restaurants have), but service and food quality have been adjusted more than accordingly. If you are looking for authentic Italian food and five star service, look no further. The menu offers a good variety of salads, Italian-style pizzas, unique pastas, items from the grill (rotisserie chicken, seafood, beef), and classics (lasagna, canneloni). he managers have really turned this place around. Service was much more friendly and attentive. Overall, everyone seems more happy. And I also noticed that the restaurant also is much cleaner than in the past - from the restrooms to the side stations and everywhere in between."

  • "Very nice meal with friendly, attentive service. Not as mobbed as similar places, so much nicer. Can accommodate and work well for whomever/whatever."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I like Macaroni Grill, Carabba's and Maggiano's, but I would put Il Fornaio a cut above those establishments in terms of service, ambience and dining fare. The prices are a bit higher and the portions might be a bit smaller, but the food is worth it. They offer the option of purchasing smaller portions of pasta, so you can sample some and still have room for other dishes. And, of course, the bread at Il Fornaio is worth the visit itself. I finally tried the wood-fired pizza and was not disappointed. Others in my party tried the rosemary chicken -- now that *was* a big portion and several pasta dishes. Every plate was clean except for the chicken we took home. We had the lemon custord for dessert: delicious."

  • "Very nice restaurant for casual dining and a romantic evening. The wait staff is attentive and they do an excellent job."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "We love coming to Il Fornaio for the all around experience - ambience, decor, and food. The bread is everything you want Italian bread to be and in three different flavors. We love their rotating menu with options for all palates. The open kitchen is a telling part of this restaurant because you can see the ingredients they use. The service this time around was something less than spectacular but it will not keep us from coming back."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Food was great. Service was terrific. Very attentive and friendly staff. The monthly regional feast is a great idea. Each month you can enjoy dishes from different regions of Italy."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Whenever we are in Denver, we eat at Il Fornaio. The food is excellent, the service fine and ambience comfortable. It is convenient to our hotel with ample parking. This time we were celebrating a special occasion and were treated to a complimentary desert. This was a nice touch. Next time in Denver we will return."

  • "The menu and service are always consistent. The patio is covered and a great hide away from the middle of the day."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We do Regional every month. Ravioli was great but risotto was big disappointment. Undercooked, chicken was dry, rice lumpy not creamy and asparagus was almost raw. Ordinarily they do a good job on risotto."

  • "We were in Italy last fall for two weeks and when we had lunch here, we felt as though we were back in Italy. We had lunch outside on the patio, had salads and split a pizza. It was wonderful! The salads were tasty and light and the pizza was hot out of the pizza oven. The wait staff was attentive, but not obtrusive. A friend told us about this restaurant and we're so glad we tried it. We'll be going back for dinner soon."

  • "Food was excellent. Our waiter was a little slow in the beginning but pick it up and turned out to be pretty good. Highly recommend dinning here. Love the one in Walnut Creek and Irvine, CA also. Don't miss the opportunity to enjoy incredible food. Can't recommend it enough!! Ps. Bread is great but bread stick are to die for"

  • "We enjoyed a terrific dinner on the outdoor patio earlier this week. The ambiance was perfect, and the food and service were very good. We shared a Caesar salad, and both of us enjoyed the seafood pasta dish (shrimp, scallops, mussels and clams in a delightful red sauce over spaghetti). The wine list was extensive, and wine by the glass was reasonably priced. The service was great and attentive, without being intrusive. All in all, a good value, and we wil definitely return."

  • "My first time here. My friend took me for my birthday - and we will be going back in July for hers!!!"

  • "Another dinner for four at this restaurant that we have been patronizing for over 10 years in whcih all were quite pleased. Il Fornaio had been in a bit of a slump over the past year or so but the new manager seems to have righted the ship."

  • "Celebrated Father's Day and had dinner at Il Fornaio. Service was excellent but the food not so much, especially for the price. Macaroni Grill is much better and the price is more reasonable. I probably won't be coming back."

  • "Second trip back in a month. Love the special menu with the region of Italy they are exploring."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We tried the tasting menu for Sicilia and were very pleased with the food. The tomato appetizer was excellent and the wine flight with dinner was good too. We had very slow service-had to get our own water from the bar as we waited more than 10 minutes for it and our espresso after dinner sat at the bar for 10 minutes before it was brought to the table lukewarm. Perhaps it was due to a big party in one of the private rooms. We hope the service improves as this place is a usually consistently good in food and service."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Wonderful meals, service and ambience! From our welcome at the front door to our dessert cart presentation, the service was excellent! Herman was an exceptional, professional and friendly waiter. Loved our whole experience here."
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "The restaurant was the choice of a friend celebrating her birthday so I obliged. Having eaten in many fine Italian restaurants, including many throughout the US and Italy, I would say that at best the Italian food served here is mediocre. Even the leftovers I shared with a friend of German heritage described the pasta dish as "not having much taste." When the bill for three people eating lunch, with no alcoholic beverages came to almost $90.00, I was stunned to say the least. Just because a place puts table cloths on the tables, I don't believe it gives it the right gouge customers with its prices. I will not be frequenting this place again."

  • "We met friends last week at Il Fornaio to have dinner and we were not disappointed. We ate out on the patio and it makes you feel like you are in Italy!! Our waitress "Il" was superb!! And then there was the food - OH MY - I ordered the butternut squash ravioli and it was awesome!! I can hardly wait to go back."

  • "Il Fornaio is an exceptionally beautiful restaurant with a private, intimite patio. We went for dinner on Sunday night and enjoyed the peaceful, quiet patio setting. Located in the middle of the DTC, Il Fornaio fits the bill of the swanky, yet somewhat casual, restaurant for all types. The wine was a bit expensive but was very tasty. The bread and olive oil are a perfect compliment to the wine and to the Italian dishes. I ordered the daily risoto with shrimp, crab, and lobster. My wife ordered the caesar salad. We were both very happy sharing our meals and filling up on bread. With a glass of wine, and tip, the bill was $55. It was an unexpectedly great experience for a Sunday evening meal. Will be back for Happy Hour as well."

  • "I decieded to take my husband to this restaurant for his birthday after hearing how good it was from a co-worker. The great service & environment left a great impression on us. However, the food was a little bland and over priced. I wished that there was a little bit more of a menu selection as well. "
