A word from Il Fornello- Oakville
In Italy "pizza a legna" (wood-fired pizza) is available everywhere, but it wasn't until il FORNELLO opened their first Toronto restaurant and offered authentic, wood-fired oven baked, Neapolitan style, thin crust pizza that Torontonians were able to experience pizza the way it was meant to be enjoyed. Now there is an il FORNELLO, Italian kitchen and bar in seven neighbourhoods in the GTA (with more to come), still making the best pizza you have ever tasted and offering a delicious selection of authentic Italian antipasti, pastas, entrées and more in a welcoming environment inspired by the Italian table where you can relax, share and enjoy your meal with family and friends.Continued

  • "Service was very slow and the waiter didn't seem to know what had been ordered by each person. Not impressive."

  • "As a traveler on the road 100 nights a year, Il Fornello Oakville is my destination for dinner when I am in Oakville and the surrounding area. Great, friendly and competent service, consistently delicious meals, fabulous pizza, and a good selection of reasonably priced wines. My favourites include the Fichi Pizza and Penne Arrabiatta. Having visited four other Il Fornello locations, Oakville remains my favourite."

  • "Excellent Italian food - the pasta was fresh and the sauces were flavourful. The pizza and other dishes were well received. I usually go to the Il Fornello at Bayview Village which has a slightly different menu. I was hoping to get the Fettuccine Alfredo with homemade sausage but they didn't offer it on the menu. However, the waiter informed that would be willing to make it for me! The wait staff was also attentive and provided friendly service!"

  • "Tables are too close together that you can't have a decent conversation."

  • "On a cold winter day, I had a really nice soup and a light meal that was very tasty and satisfying. The service was great for a lunch hour rush, and I was in and out with some good conversation in an hour. I'd recommend it to folks who work out in that neck of the woods."

  • "My wife and I were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the dining atmosphere. The food was fresh and flavourful (pizza was prepared right in front of us), and the wine was good. We will most definitely go again."

  • "This restaurant has become our favourite in Oakville. The food selection is always flavourful, their specials change regularly so there's always opportunities to try new things, and the attention to service, and friendliness of staff ensure tha you want to come back."

  • "Everything was wonderful. The food was on point. The only reason why I gave service a 4 star is because the waitress never offered a second glass of wine...I had to wait a while and get her attention."

  • "As usual, the food and service were excellent. everyone ordered a different personal-sized pizza and we sampled each others' pizza. all were tasty. Good lunch!"

  • "We have been to Il Fornello several times and always enjoyed the food, ambience and service. This past time in early December was very upsetting as I look forward to my fettuccine carbonara, however, not good at all this time - very little sauce (dry) and just the all over flavour was not up to par. As this is the only dish I ever eat here I have alot to compare it to."

  • "The aromatic, and very tasty, FORMAGGI .. a great start : from there the PENNE ARRABIATE became the decision for the majority ....but not for everyone ! The interesting, and very nicely presented, QUINOA SALAD, complimented in this case by an accompanying seasoned sausage, drew quite a few appreciative comments and a request for a 'small taste', which was hardly surprising ! The plate was intended for one .....alas! Finally, the parsley and salmon with goat cheese RAVIOLI stood the test of the most seasoned gourmand in the group: for presentation and herb accompaniments, this brought the widest, post-prandial smiles ! The accompanying REISLING POND was roundly appreciated and stood up very well to the solid array."

  • "We enjoyed our evening with great pizza and great service. Bruschetta was soggy but that is minor. We were celebrating a birthday and the staff have a lovely lava cake for us to share. Kind and thoughtful. Kids ate like troupers! Thanks to the staff."

  • "Were given a table tucked up against the kitchen - crowded and busy with servers going by. Food was very good and not too big a portion. A little noisy which made it difficult for some of us mature folks to hear. Server was very consicious and asked us on several occasions whether we were happy?"

  • "Il Fornello- Oakville has got to be the best restaurant in Oakville. It is truly a hidden gem in the neighborhod and it is our regular spot for dinner now. The food and service is exceptional! Please try the steak, better then the Keg! Warren is also the best server if you are lucky enough to get him!! Try this place you won't regret it!"

  • "The food was excellent: arrived hot, portion sizes were just right, salads were fresh and crisp - good job! Service was also excellent: not rushed, we had the opportunity to chat; food was exactly as we ordered and arrived in a timely manner. The ambiance was very pleasant: the tables were not too crowded, the noise level was not so high that you couldn't carry on a conversation. Win, Win, Win: Food, Service, Ambiance."

  • "Shared a meal with my Wife and 10 YO. Nice ambiance with a full house on Saturday. We ordered the Smoked Trout Salad and a Ceasar Salad followed by two Wood Fired Pizzas (Margarita and Tartufo) and the house made Gnocchi. Pizzas were perfectly prepared with just the right amount of ingredients on a crisp crust. My son devoured his Gnocchi. Followed the mains with house made Pana Cota and Tiramisu, a perfect end to a great meal. We will be back!"

  • "Il Fornello- Oakville never disappoints!!The food is always amazing and menu reflects current "in season" dishes. The staff are exteremely amazing- ESPECIALLY Warren! Most of the staff have been there for years which is always a good sign. If you want steak, I highly recommend getting it here- the KEG cannot beat the steak here! if you like lamb, the lamb shank is also truly to die for ( when it's available). I wish this would be a regular main course on the menu!"
