A word from Il Fornello- Richmond Hill
WELCOME TO il FORNELLO 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 friendsContinued

  • "I don't appreciate when you walk in to a restaurant, and the hosts and waiters are too busy having a conversation to notice you or greet you, which is I what I experienced on my visit. I also feel this restaurant is overpriced for the quality of the food."

  • "With salads, eggplant dip, pasta and pizza, this brunch offers something different in addition to traditional brunch favorites of eggs, French toast and Benedict. We were there for opening and the food was still coming out to the buffet but it was all good. Atmosphere was simpatico and so was the service. A nice variant and a satisfying brunch."

  • "This place was absolutely phenomenal! I had made reservations for Il Fornello a couple weeks prior to our dining. It was 6 of my other friends along with myself and it was our first experience at Il Fornello's. The ambiance and organization was perfect! The tables were well presented and prepared for our arrival. Walking into the restaurant and seeing the wood oven in plain view was of great interest. Their complimentary bread with oil and vinegar was a great touch to the dining experience. I will definitely be revisiting the Il Fornello's Richmond Hill location and possibly other locations in the near future. I thank the staff at Il Fornello for their great hospitality and service. Keep it up!"

  • "We chose the restaurant to be close to a concert in the area and the food did not disappoint it was very nice and well composed. I started with the squash salad special which was nice and was properly dressed not over done. I then had cannelloni formaggio which was very nice light and delicious. The wine menu by glass is very nice with a good choice. The portion sizes where large and my guest was albe to tek the leftovers for lunch the next day. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive"

  • "we arrived at the end of the buffet time so not much left but they said they would make whatever we wanted from that for our lunch, and did. It was great."

  • "Have been to this restaurant one other time and was disappointed in the food...we decided to give it a 2nd try as the friend I was going with kept telling me how great her meals were there & I must have been on a bad day. Well, I was not disappointed, food was the same as I remember. The service was inattentive. We started the evening out with a male server who was friendly, smiled and checked on us, then he table was passed over to a female who had no personality, barely came to the table. We had to ask another server to get our bill, waited for over 5 minutes with our coats on while the female server chatted with another table and kept looking at us, not acknowledging us and letting us know she'd be right over. Disappointing night"

  • "Really enjoyed the food .. ordered several appetizers we shared as a group ... Antipasto plate was very nice selection. Osso Bucco was a great choice. Gnocchi in the Asiago cream sauce was over the top ... Our waiter was great ..."

  • "Had a great time at the restaurant. Had a last minute issue where half of my party was unable to make it until an hour after the reservation. Got assistance from Marina (hostess) who not only assisted us with our request but was able to make things work to accommodate us. Very good service.......I would definitely go back!!!"

  • "Our server was excellent. He was attentive but not overly so and he understood that we weren't in a rush. He brought us bread to munch on and the meals were served in a timely manner and the food was very good. We very much enjoyed our girls lunch and would definately go back again soon."

  • "We go to this restaurant frequently after a late afternoon movie. We always enjoy the food and the service is top notch. They take reservations which is a big plus since they are usually full."

  • "Booked table for 8 people to celebrate father's 80th birthday. Server was great and we were seated immediately. Long wait between appetizers and mains (45 minutes). We had two kids in our party and this was torture on them. Food was ok. Nothing worth the $20+ charged per dish. Asiago Chicken had mostly spinach...very little cheese. Pasta with pesto and Pasta with tomato sauce dishes both were something we could have prepared at home. Pepperoni pizza was delicious! Great thin crust and tasty toppings. Desserts were nothing spectacular. $7 each for a tiny scoop of either vanilla or chocolate gelato. Cheesecake covered in some fruit sauce...blueberry....blackberry? Hard to tell. Won't go there again."

  • "Il Fornello Richmond Hill is much improved from the last ime we were there 2 years ago. We were hesitant to try it again, but did because we were in the immediate area. The restaurant appears to have had a modest facelift and is much cleaner and menu is streamlined. We ordered the gniocchi and signature pizzas. The gniocchi were average, but the artichoke and prochiutto pizzas was excellent. We'll go back."

  • "I ordered the veal , my wife and daughter both had pasta it arrived luke warm {not good} , my son did enjoy his pizza. The specialty coffee`s we had were also not very hot and again not very good."

  • "Overall good experience. Food was great, service was okay, but the music was so loud it was difficult to hear my dinig partner. Il Fornello should decide what type of restaurant they are: upscale Italian or dance club."

  • "Sorry to say that our most recent (and last) experience at Il Fornello was remarkably bad. We like Italian food but the food at this location was way below par. I had rigatoni Bolognese. The rigatoni was both rubbery and hard, as if it had been cooked until dry. The meat sauce was incredibly salty, an old restaurant trick used to create "tastiness". My wife had risotto with root vegetables and chicken. The chicken was tasteless and the root vegetables consisted of 9 tiny pieces of carrot. When the server - who was friendly and efficient - asked how the meals were we had to tell her. The manager admitted that the food comes from a head office supplier and she agreed the "root vegetables" were pretty spartan. The bill was reduced."
