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 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!
They seated us even though open table messed up our reservation on a busy Valentine’s Day and they made me a special off the menu vegan meal! It was delicious!
Excellent Service! Franco (Francisco) our waiter was amazing. Excellent service, excellent food, wine and dessert recommendations. Restaurant very recommended. If you go be sure to ask for Franco as your waiter.
Love the service, the views and the place.... food was not good though. Been here few times in the past and everything was delicious. This time around food had no taste.
