Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. Il Fornaio means "the Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique Italian dining experience. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; house made pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and house made soups; a wide variety of desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch.

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.

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.
