Great as always
I've been to the Il Fornello downtown and loved it, so I thought I would give the one in Oakville a try because its closer. Very pleased, service was definitely the highlight! The server was very helpful and polite, as well, upon leaving the owner thanked us for visiting. The food was just as good as the one downtown. Definitely recommend!

Very busy restaurant and would definitely recommend a reservation but the service was quick and the food was excellent! Our favorite was the smoked salmon and goat cheese ravioli with vodka cream sauce--so decadent!
Great selection of pastas and wood-fired pizzas, interesting salads and desserts that are big enough to share.
Very reasonably priced, especially since the quality of the food is so high. Would definitely return to sample other dishes.

This is not a Review!!
We love the food and the staff at Il Fornellos!! And we have all been there many times and will continue to do so.
I would not want to say this to anyone else, however, may I say to Il F. that the dishes that 2 guests ordered (large pasta with some cream cheese on top to blend in with the spices.. $22 per dish, if I remember correctly) is not a dish they would order again. Not a complaint but an observation. The rest of the food was excellent.
Thank you all for your wonderful smiles and ambience.

Appreciated the server leaving us to chat (3 girlfriends) without rushing choosing menu items etc.
Forgot the balsamic vinegar when she brought olive oil and bread - never did bring it.

Good neighbourhood option
Good neighbourhood option for dinner. Disappointed by the portion of the grilled calamari and shrimp - also a very small portion. But linguini carbonara and rose gnocchi were great. Caesar salad is consistent delicious.

Very good...but noisy
Overall, the food and service was very good, just wish that the noise level didn't make conversation difficult at times. The wood oven pizza is especially tasty, with many combinations to choose from.

dinner for two
Open table - great for making reservations in the near future. Restaurant - Nice décor, great pizza, delicious gorgonzola gnocci. I would not choose the dessert again - deep fried rice pudding with strawberry coulis - not very good. Great cappuchino and my husband loved the anchovies in his Caesar salad - overall, good experience. Will definitely eat there again!

Open Air Summer Pizza
We enjoyed a wonderful salad and pizza meal on the patio. The food, staff and ambience were all great.

Great restaurant - some suggestions
Air conditioning was either not working or not large enough. Very very warm which did spoil our evening out. Food and service was very good. My twin sister and I were celebrating our birthdays which the staff was aware of and nothing was said or done to make it a memorable evening. Something as simple as a free dessert goes a long way especially if you would like to see your customers return.

Il Fornello is our "go to"
Il Fornello is our "go to" place - we love it for after work when I don't want to cook (which is often!) and for meeting up with friends on the weekends. The atmosphere is conducive to heart-to-heart chats and for laughter! The service was a bit slown last time we were there, but seeing as it was $10 pizza night and everyone was ordering pizza, it is understandable.

I had never been to IL Fornello so we decided to try it for my birthday. The waiter we had was very friendly ,funny,and knew the menu well wish I could remember his name. I would ask for him by name. next time . The food was excellent good portions, We will be coming back again soon as we enjoyed the dining experience.

Will definitely be back!
I was in a party of 6, we each had something different and we all were so impressed. I had the veal picata and can't wait to go back and have it again. The service was outstanding also.

Great Food- Incredible Service
The food at Il Fornello was very good, authentic Italian. Grilled calamari was excellent, and the beef tenderloin was better than a lot of steak houses. Decor feels like a chain restaurant, and the volume was a bit loud if you are going for a romantic dinner, but our waiter was from Italy and regaled us with stories all night long. Would highly recommend.

Another Great Night!
Thanks to everyone at Il Fornello, Oakville for making our family dinner a great experience. All 3 generations enjoyed the amazing $10 pizza Tuesday!

Enjoyed a lovely meal with friends. Restaurant was busy with a lively atmosphere
I am glad we had a reservation as there was queue at the front waiting for tables.
2 of us had the featured smoked chicken risotto, perfection. One had the featured beef short rib with paparadelle:
Tender meat and lots of it. Very tasty

Best restaurant in Oakville
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!

One of our favourites
We are always very pleased with the food and service at this restaurant. We have to drive a bit of a distance to get there so it would be nice if there was one in Mississauga. We look forward to returning soon.

Awesome Wood Oven Pizza
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!

Good Italian food
Food is cooked fresh and tasty
Haven't tried the pizzas yet but salads, pasta and meat were very good
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Win, Win, Win,
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.
