Such a great restaurant. We keep going back. Dan is a great front of the house manager and the food is always great.
Today we had the ravioli of the day which was excellent. As well as some braised beef pasta thing of the day. The beef was some of the most tender I have ever had.
Always great. Never a bad meal. Can't say enough great things aboot this restaurant.
We've been coming here for over a decade. Always love the food and the service is excellent. Dan always has an excellent wine menu.
Everything was delicious and the service was great! We love coming here for Italian..
As always our experience at Ill Fornello is always great! And food is fantastic hence we keep coming back.
Good food in a nice ambiance, staff very friendly and professional.
Enjoyed & in fact going back with the whole family (6) on Sept 23
Veal piccata with spagetti- veal was overcooked and slightly burned on edges. Balsamic vinegar with bread is cheap quality.
Great tasting food and good service. The outdoor area is large and spacious.
Always a good experience from staff to food A+. I've been going to il fornello Oakville for many years now and it never fails to surpass my expectations.
Our go to place for casual dining out night, food is always good as expected, hot and just the right portion. Manager is friendly and wait staff very accommodating to request.
Usually the food is very good, but this time, it wasn't!
Food was cool in temperature --salad very expensive for size
Desserts quite expensive
Always a great meal ... our families gather here quite often. Staff here is outstanding.
The food was very tasty and served in good time. The wait staff was friendly and efficient. The open kitchen staff were also receptive to questions about what they were making. The menu provided a good variety of appetizers and main course dishes.
Always great food and a great experience
Il Fornello is and has always been a mystery. They will go through long periods of mediocrity (like the last 12-18 months) when we will go less and less often and then it will climb back to the heights achieved when they first opened in downtown Toronto.
We are hoping that reascension begins soon.
Our server was very polite and friendly but smothering. He needs to be trained on when to approach a table.
Quite empty for a Saturday night
Great and so respectful. Owner or head chef was great and our server amazing
Slightly disappointed that we reserved and specifically said it was for an 18th Birthday but they didn't do anything to acknowledge it. Overall, good service and food. Would return but not for special occasion.
Food was very good. I had the rapini and ricotta ravioli in hot tomato sauce. The portion was a little small for my appetite which left me craving for just a little bit more. Service was ok but I have experienced better in the same place before. Overall for a lunch with friends during business hours the experience was good. We sat on the patio as it was a beautiful day and had a great time.
Food delicious as expected. Service a little slower than usual.
The pasta is excellent and never disappoints! Yes the restaurant was busy for Mother's Day. We booked a couple weeks before, arrived on time. Table upper level surrounded by all other tables. My son and wife were bumped by staff and customers seating themselves at least three times. Table seemed to have been added with a shoe horn! Made a special night not seem as special when everyone else had a nice table!
Once again we had a great meal in a comfortable and warm environment. The Insalata Roma is always a winning starter and then we built our own perfect pizza with grilled chicken, mushrooms and roasted red peppers.
Great spot! Service excellent! Food quality excellent! A bit noisy but they did have a couple of large groups. The manager is very hands on and pleasant. A keeper for sure.
Delicious fresh, food. Loved the Arancini! Nice ambiance.
The Waiter was amazing and the food was GREAT!!!! - JAY T WARSH
