Giuseppe was a humorous efficient and engaging waiter.Had a great time celebrating with friends. Will return real soon.👌🤗🙏
Very good meal we enjoyed our visit and will go back next time in Coronado
I was given the window seat that I requested through OpenTable, so the dinner event started well.
As the same as my last visit, the food was stellar, the service was exceptional, and the ambiance was warm and inviting.
Remains my favorite restaurant in SD.
Great experience from start to end. Table was ready the moment we walked in. We had made the reservation. Host was extremely friendly and staff was very efficient and friendly. Food tasted really good. Good beers on tap too along with elaborate wine list. Slightly on the expensive side, but really an experience.
Food was fair. There was no flexibility in substituting vegetables for pasta with the scallopini entree.
Server brought wrong dish to our table and tried to insist we ordered it. Once again you pay for the view and everything else is subordinate to that.
Venizia was terrific server! We had a great view and the food was delicious!
We have been twice now on vacation. Once as adult date night and once with kids for early dinner. Both evenings were exceptional.
Thank you for making Jeremy's birthday dinner very special!
Wonderful dinner with family. Food and ambience were great.
Excelente servicio , pedimos una ternera con alcachofas y limón , todo delicioso . La vista sobre Downtown es hermosa .
Amazing view, delicious food & and terrific customer service!
Excellent service and delicious food. We were seated promptly and the server was accommodating and friendly.
Buena y buen servicio
I've been here twice now and I loved both times! The food was AMAZING and the service staff was incredibly nice! Best Italian food I've had in a while for sure!
For the 30 years we have been weekenders to Coronado this is our first visit and Il Fornaio will be our Italian spot. Service was compliant in allowing us time with our cocktails, which were well make Italian takes on the classics. I ordered from the monthly specials, finding a gluten free meal in the risotto special. Otherwise, there is a gluten free menu, though it is unclear if the pizzas are available as gluten free. My wife had the capellini pomodor0 which was prepared in a fresh manner. We accomplished one goal which was to have left overs. Something that is challenging at our other Coronado eateries. To top it off, we had a great corner table with a view of the bay and city, which is pretty easy to get almost anywhere in the restaurant. Our service was pleasant and accommodating.
Amazing place, the food is superb, branzino puttanesca is really good and pastas are mangelicals, i love this high end restaurant, Luca and Alex always very kind.
Best italian restauran ever!
We have been going for ten years always great food..we went on Friday, food was terrible..me and my wife got sick..very disappointed...
Not moderate not quiet, in between noise level was good
Italian delicioso!!! Great Italian cuisine, first rate service and an amazing location right on San Diego Bay side!
Everything was excellent...the view, the food, the wine & the service!
The food was absolutely delightful, amazing service - our server Kyle was helpful, friendly, and courteous. We had a great experience out on the patio.
Perfect balance of great food, views, wonderful service and ambiance. I love this location and will be beck soon.
We like the food obviously the view and location is amazing but our waiter just did not attend us well example never offered after opening our wine bottle to serve a glass we did it for our selves that no profesional we do not mind but we expect more from the service .
Great food, great atmosphere and wonderful service.
Beautiful harbor view looking across to the convention center. Friendly and attentive service providing very good food.
Our waiter, Tony, made the night with his exceptional service and personality.
He was a Marine, so the Marine in our party was very pleased.
We even picked up the bill of a Marine and his gal nearby.
Our waiter, Jorge, was great. He was very attentive without being intrusive. He made great recommendations regarding the menu and took genuinely great care of our party.
I visited the restaurant twice during my stay in San Diego and both times were excellent. The staff was friendly and accommodating. During the first visit, I ordered salmon which was deliciously paired with recommended wine by the waiter. The second visit, I ordered pasta. Everyone at our table ordered some version of pasta and we all very much enjoyed our meals.
Short lovely walk from hotel to restaurant. Would highly recommend if you are in the area.
The food is always excellent and artfully presented. Service is friendly and attentive. The view across the bay to downtown San Diego is awesome.
Great service and food. We were seated about an hour earlier than our reservation time.
We came here for Valentine’s Day, wanted to try authentic Italian food for a change and it was delicious! The customer service was amazing and prompt!
We LOVE Il Fornaio. It is our 'go to' place for special occasions as well as when guests come to San Diego visiting. Always a wonderful experience.
Service, food and ambience were great for a very important family gathering. View of San Diego from across the water was stunning. This is my favorite place to eat and meet on Coronado.
Great restaurant, friendly staff and really tasty food.
Always enjoy dining at El Fornaio. One of our favorite restaurants on Coronado and in the San Diego area.
I went with my girlfriend and we had a wonferful time , we will come back for sure
I didn't discover until we got home that they charged us something called "Open Food." Apparently this is a totally unnecessary surcharge and an underhanded way to jack up the bill. We'll go back to this restaurant for the food, but they won't be adding any extra charges to our bill. I resent the charge and the fact I had to pay taxes on it and consider it in figuring out our tip.
Went there with my wife for our anniversary. This was a place with great atmosphere and great service but the food selection is limited and the food was not good at all. Also who ever heard of an Italian place that does not have Lasagna on the menu. Our anniversary dinner was nothing to talk about due to the food. Everything else was wonderful. Will not return.
A lovely Valentine's dinner. Always well prepared food and attentive staff. The Chef/owner, Georgio is a delight!
