It was awesome!
Always enjoy Il Fornaio however the parking is terrible. I was there the other day with the rain coming down in buckets at 11:20 AM The valet did not arrive on time at 11:30 as the sign is posted so I left the car and went inside. They workers inside were very understanding and within a few minutes I had a receipt for my car. This should not happen.
I enjoyed being with my friends and having good food but I will have to think again if I want to return to Il Fornaio in Burlingame because of the parking....
I’ll Fornaio has excellent food. Our server was very friendly and helpful. The restaurant is pleasant and fun. I would definitely recommend.
Great ambience, cordial service and fine food. Wine prices low for restaurant dining and a nice variety.
I hate organic...so definitely would never even try it...but the ambiance has always -- for 30 years -- been fantastic...but last Monday night, my birthday, was fantastic...only because of our waiter, Kevin!!! and I do mean ONLY...
Had a very good lunch with an excellent server to celebrate with two friends.
I’ve been to most of the il fornaios in the Bay Area... hands down best one in my opinion
The waiter Mr. Lee is great love the place love the food lover location love the valet parking great bar got to go
The food here is good and price is reasonable and good value. It is very popular
in a very high end neighborhood.
Service was slow; food was fine. Good choices for children. No mention of Birthday. Mentioned when I made reservations with Open Table.
Il Fornaio has long been a reliable place to gather with our family and friends, but sadly this meal (brunch) at Il Fornaio felt a bit tired...my friend's oatmeal was cold and he had asked to have extras on the side, which server forgot. The others at the table all had omelettes, which were fairly tasty but mine also arrived a bit on the cool side. The toast accompanying the omelettes was cold, and without butter - not at all appealing. The side of applewood bacon was very good, not too salty or fatty - all good, but also lukewarm. It didn't seem to be that busy yet the meal was just okay. I will definitely try out some new places for brunch before I return to an old favorite. Hopefully better next time!
Once we were seated. The waiter and manager treat use excellent. They made a poor start to our brunch into a great dinning experience.
Our waiter made the night SO special ! He provided a dessert for the anniversary celebration!
Great food & service, yet sadly didn't acknowledge our stated "special occasion " of retirement after 32 yrs of work !!!! Bummer. No free dessert or wine.
Our server was great, seemed to be spread thin. Disappointed in The minestrone soup was like red dish water no flavor very little veggies. My pasta was very firm, I like it al dente this was under cooked, and Luke warm. Flavor was good. If this would have been my first visit I wouldn’t return.
Another great lunch! I had a Caesar salad with shrimp and it was amazing. Very fresh and crisp and the shrimp was nicely grilled. I also ordered the steak sandwich for a coworker and it looked so good I had to have a little bite! Amazing!! Steak was very flavorful and the grilled veggies and everything made a really great sandwich!
Birthday nice experience
Met a friend for lunch
We had beet salad and Christina Pizza with glass wine
Manual was our waiter
Great food and service
Food and service were excellent. I wish it was more crowded because it really has a lot to offer.
Sadly didn't give us one of the available square 4 tops but seated us next to the party of 18 with the noise and with whom we shared the waitress. Otherwise good.
I hate to leave negative reviews. But, my wife and our friends were extremely disappointed in our last visit to Il Fornaio in Burlingame. We were greeted and seated politely and on time, but after that, well,not much happened. We waited and waited. No water and the waiters were afraid to make eye contact. Avfter about twenty minutes of waiting, the hostess, whom I felt sorry for, told us that the waiters were "slammed" and no waiter wanted to pick up another table. Mind you this is after 9pm on a Saturday night in Burlingame. Things are about to slow down, big time. We waited about another 10 minutes before giving up completely and walking down to Farm and Vine where we had a wonderful meal. Not sure whether to blame incompetent management or the wait staff, but we were disappointed that such a normally good establishment good screw up so bad.
I've been entertaining at Il Fornaio for years. Usually in Seattle of Palo Alto. I was beyond disappointed when I visited the Burlingame location. Lettuce in my wilted and slightly brown on the edges. I had my favorite, Cappelacci di Zucca. Rather than beautiful lightly pasta with squash filling, I got five huge slightly raw pasta pieces with baby food tasting filling. My Italian son in law got overcooked pasta. The rissoto special was fairly good and the chicken was delicious.
Our server was super pushy, didn't listen to our orders or wishes and then tried to push desserts even though we stated 3 times we didn't want it.
Overall not a great experience. There are lots of choices in Burlingame for Italian. I'd try somewhere else.
Service was good, food was good. The smell of the food was overpowered by the scented Lilies that were beautiful but way to fragrant. Cucumber Cooler was a good starter cocktail
Great service. Good food. 5 of us really enjoyed the lunch
Again of course amazing meal. Love the staff love the food love the environment. Definitely a recommendation to come back. Food is outstanding and never fails to impress. My favorite waiter is Geraldo. He’s crazy efficient. Until next time
Wonderful-server did a great job-was very knowledgeable about the dishes and very personable without hovering.
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.
Great bruschetta, risotto, chicken filled ravioli and caramel sea-salt gelato
I had an excellent experience at Il Fornaio in Burlingame, per usual! The staff is very courteous and professional, our meals are always very appetizing, and we leave happy every time.
Consistent food and service.
Been going here for years. Great Italian food and great bruch on Sundays..
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.
Once again a great experience, delicious food especially the pennoni alla vodka, the restaurant has great energy and the service is always consistent.
Best restaurant in 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!
Well what can I say. Again Il Fornaio Burlingame has done it again. Fantastic fantastic fantastic. The food the service the ambiance wow. I’m speechless. I can’t recommend this place more. This time I got to meet the chef and the manager they are both incredibly awesome. This will be on my list to come to very often. The food is so so good. The consistency the presentation the taste. Yum yum yum. Until next time. Thank you.
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.
