Il Fornaio never disappoints. From the welcome at the door to the placement of the tables the restaurant is warm . The service is very efficient and the servers very pleasant and helpful.
The food is delicious and there are many choices.

Five of us stopped in for salads, some robust Italian red and to share a couple of pizze. Salad and wine did not disappoint. But the superb, erstwhile pizzaiolo, Davide, has moved on to greener pastures, and the pizza was mediocre — thick, doughy crust (like east coast or Chicago interlopers like it), and sparse toppings. Far from la vera pizza italiana. Too bad. We offer incantations for improvement in the weeks and months ahead.

By the way, it seems like W was President when this Il Fornaio last had an executive Chef. How can it improve without skill and leadership on the inside?

Food is always good. They jammed lots of extra tables in for that evening. Value was fair perhaps the prices were reflected by the high demand for Valentine's day.

When I called to advise my uber was running 10 min late the hostess advised I didn’t have a reservation. Thank goodness I had a screen shot of my open table reservation. Was embarrassing for me as I was with my boss.

My friends enjoyed their carpaccio and angel hair pasta with fresh tomato sauce. My ravioli was tepid and kind of gluey.

Salads weren’t served, pizza had to be sent back undercooked, had to remind waiter of dessert order.
It was very busy that night and we still enjoyed the evening

Il Fornaio is kind of a funky place. The decor is very nice, the people are mostly cool, and the food is very good. The pizza is excellent and so are many of the dishes. They have a happy hour Monday through Friday which is outstanding. If you want a good meal at a good price, do the happy hour.

We have been to Il Fornaio in Corte Madera several times with another couple who live in Marin County.

The food is always delicious and well prepared. The service is cordial and efficient, and we have never felt either rushed or ignored.

We will continue to dine there because it has always been a pleasant place for us.

Seafood salad: Mostly great, flavors, freshness, but the beans in the salad were undercooked, almost crunchy.
