Our server, Samantha, was not only very professional and courteous, but she was charming as well! The food, as usual at Il Fornaio, was excellent. I had the pasta in a vodka cream sauce with bacon. Just mentioning it makes me hungry again.

We've had excellent service and enjoyable evenings. We also enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant--upscale, but casual.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful meal with smilesThe service was outstanding. The waitress was very attentive and friendly. It was a special occasion and the management came to our table with well wishes. A very pleasurable meal for a party of 8!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOur Favorite!Every time we visit Il Fornaio, it is exquisite. The ambiance is beautiful, the food is top notch, and the service is impeccable. They have a respectable offering of wines, and are always changing up their special offerings in addition to a sterling regular menu. If there's someone you want to impress, take them to Il Fornaio. This last visit we took our vacationing relatives in for dinner, and everything went off without a hitch. For the same amount it would have cost to have the same meal at Olive Garden, we ate a much higher quality, more satisfying meal, and left feeling as if we'd been treated like royalty. Every time we leave asking ourselves what the secret is, and why other places can't just follow Il Fornaio's example.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMoverall great except the serveroverall great except the server had a friend come visit he was at the bar, so when it came to our familys birthday treat and candle , never happened even thought other guests were given the special treatment, the whole reason we came was for this event only to be forgoten in the end. she was pre occupied with her friend at the bar.:)4/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWorth the DriveWe attended the Passporto party and really enjoyed ourselves once again.

Nice dining room and bar and the waiters are very helpful.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasent birthday celebrationA wonderful meal on a very quiet Sunday evening. Waiter was not overly attentive and left the 4 of us to enjoy our conversation and meal. He was there when he needed to be. The food was excellent, I am not a connoisseur so cannot pass critical judgement, however the seafood dish was fantastic as was the chicken. The sauces are outstanding and of course made the meal what it was.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoy the monthly menuWe enjoy the monthly menu features for different areas of Italy. As usual, this month was just as enjoyable as the others.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMI was a little disappointedI was a little disappointed with the Conchiglie al Pollo. It was just ok. This dish included just a few pieces of chicken which was a little dry & lacked flavor & a few small pieces of broccoli; it was mostly pasta shells. I expected better from Il Fornaio. My husband had the Pollo Toscano & said it was good. We were very happy with our server (sorry, didn't get her name); she was very pleasant & accommodating. We also enjoyed the hot bread & were also pleased that the menu items were not overly priced.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic Italian DiningIl Fornaio is our family's favorate Italian restaurant.
