Amazing, once again. Stopped by for a quick lunch and had the Sole fish lunch special which had lentils, avacado, grilled veggies and delicious strips of the Sole. Service was great as well!

Lipstick on water glass. Replacement delivered without a care and given to wrong person. Runner didn't know how to use words let alone serve properly.

Had cousins in town from southern California, wanted something good & enjoyable for catching-up conversation. They come from an Italian family (Sicilian grandparents), and it sometimes makes me little uneasy to take them out for Italian -- but Il Fornaio got a thumbs-up all around. Very enjoyable experience.

Happy valentines. Wow wow wow. I love this place so much. The decorations were so charming and so nice. It was so welcoming.

Today I had heart shaped ravioli filled with chicken that was to die for. My date had the salmon with black truffle which was outstanding.

The server Gerardo was so awesome. Just no mistakes and so nice.

I’m coming back soon. Thank you Il Fornaio Burlingame.

My mom, who does not know much about online reservations so asked me to get her a table for her and a friend at Il Fornaio in Burlingame since the last time she was there she had a wonderful experience. I was happy to oblige. Again, she shared with me that she thoroughly enjoyed both the food and the service and loves how open and airy the restaurant is. She can't wait to go back!

Great service and food! The Insalata Regina is amazing especially with some grilled salmon. My boyfriend had one of the lunch specials the steak sandwich and he really enjoyed it! Will definitely be back again!

The food was delicious, and our waiter very prompt and attentive. We are glad that we heeded his advice to try the homemade spumoni - outstanding!

The food was great - server was not! She looked like she just got out of bed - very ruffled looking.

We always have good food served to us by friendly waiters.

The only suggestion is that the Regional Tasting menu no longer offers the Prix Fix price for three courses. This was a very compelling treat. I recommend that corporate management of Il Fornaio reinstate this.
