About

IL FORNELLO 203 North Service Rd. W. is Oakville's “Go-To” spot for casual, Italian fare. IL FORNELLO introduced the GTA to Wood-Fired Pizzas and still makes the best Pizzas in town, from the classic Margherita to the popular Pepperoni to the gourmet Fig. The cozy dining room with table and banquette seating has a wood burning pizza oven as a focal point and whether enjoying a quick pizza or a full course dinner with the family, the friendly staff will make your experience special. Although the Pizza shines, the Appetizers, Salads, Mains and Desserts all deserve consideration. Favourites include Veal Carpaccio, Chicken Asiago, Beet & Arugula Salad and the Weekend Brunch features Eggs Bella Donna, Italian Panini, and Pizza del Sole with 2 sunny side up eggs on top. The Wine & Spirits list is extensive and affordable with Ontario and International wines and local and Italian beer. Vegetarians will find lots to enjoy and there are gluten-free pizza and pasta options available.

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.

Veal piccata with spagetti- veal was overcooked and slightly burned on edges. Balsamic vinegar with bread is cheap quality.

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.

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.

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.

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.
