Pizza a Scelta
All of our thin-crust pizzas are perfect as a shared appetizer
Wait staff is amazing
Food is consistently fabulous
This is a go-to no brainer for us to meet friends & family
Light and airy
Fun menu, and always a comfortable and interesting setting. Food is well done.
We had the Regina Salad, noodles with beef sauce (lots of beef!), and the salmon.
Consumed entirely! :-)
The food never disappoints and we love the wait staff.
Great spot for reliably good Italian food. Excellent Caesar salad. Nice seating near the fireplace.
Our server was friendly, attentive, and got everything right. The socially distanced seating worked very well. The house salad was absolutely delicious. We had pasta with seafood--pasta good, seafood not good. We took a walk down the mall where the ambience was lively and the landscaping perfectly chosen and well maintained.
All in all, it was a lovely afternoon.
Food was fresh and delicious. Service from all was excellent. Our server Marco in particular was gem.
The ambiance is always welcoming.
I love being greeted in Italian!!
The portions were generous,
I had the seafood misto and every ingredient was done to perfection.
The servers were attentive and on it!
Highly recommend !
Would like to see more meat options on the menu. I Miss the old, pre-COVID options.
Great service, great food.
Delicious food and excellent service.
The chicken is delicious and the staff are wonderful.
Wait staff were, as always, solicitous of older ladies, and it was nice to be back to a favorite restaurant.
Food was mediocre. Chicken dish was unimaginative - tasted like jerky with tabasco on it, food was over cooked and dry, cocktails are in very small glasses, restaurant appearance was unimpressive, wrinkled tablecloths, tables were not set, looked like a place with very little pride of ownership.
The food was good but the waiter was brusque and not very accommodating. I’ve been going to Il Fornaio for many years and I still enjoy it and am glad it’s still open
I took my mom for her 79th birthday. They were so great to us. They brought her a piece of tiramisu with a candle. We were so grateful. The food was grate, the ambiance was beautiful and the service was amazing. Thank you so much!
As always, Il Fornaio was delicious! My husband had the arugula salad topped with salmon and I had the minestrone soup. The warm crusty bread dipped in olive oil and balsamic vinegar was a welcome addition. Finished our meal with a cappuccino. The service was impeccable. The wait staff are professional and attentive. We are looking forward to returning for dinner soon!
I eat here every 2 months and the food and service are consistently excellent! Very good at positioning the outside tables within social distancing guidelines.
Slow service and my food was cold. Had to send it back.
A year ago we, three good friends, had to cancel our reservations. When indoor dining opened to 50% capacity, we made a reservation. We had so much to talk about and we were never rushed while we enjoyed our delicious Caesar Salad with shrimp, glass of wine and dessert. Our waiters were attentive and one graciously took our picture of this memorable occasion. We will definitely return!
A great place for our first post-COVID indoor dining experience. Nice ambiance, truly outstanding service. The bruschetta appetizer and caprese salad were delicious.
Wonderful service, food and attention to Covid restrictions. Loved it.
Excellent lunch. Food and service were great. Felt very comfortable with all of their Covid precautions.
It was our first lunch out since COVID hit, so really enjoyed it.
It’s a big restaurant, so we felt sufficiently spaced out. The waiters were attentive without being overbearing. The food was, as always, consistently good. It’s been a couple weeks since we went so not too many specifics there. Good to have Il Fornaio back as an in-person option!
The dining room is dark and uninviting these days. We sat inside - placed near the open door area to the patio; there was a terrible draft.
Food was fine.
Service is fine.
Service is very good, ambience is lovely as is the food.
We had been to Il Fornaio for a long time, but now that partial indoor dining was allowed again we went for lunch. We all had salads, two with salmon added and one with chicken. These additions were all nicely cooked.
Two of us had the Regina salad. It was a nice salad but we were disappointed about how few capers were in it. That detracted. The third salad was a Caesar that was well liked. Our wine selections by the glass were well liked also.
This was an excellent dining experience. Will definitely return!
Food is consistently wonderful
Great lunch. It was good to eat inside. Plenty of room to have LOTS of space. What a treat. The bread is amazing. Lunch was awesome.
Stopped on the way to San Francisco airport for a meal, before our flight. Had been served the soup, and the server dropped our waters onto the table and into the soup. A little clumsy. But all was cleaned up and cleaned off. Salads were good. Thank you
I took my 7 year old there and she was treated very special.
Always great, been going here for nearly 30 years, even during the pandemic they made it fun and accessible for us regulars.
Food is always excellent, service is always super accommodating, and the gin martinis are fantastic!
Great service. Loved our waiter.
Five star pasta and calamari frites
Very fresh ceasar salad
Fried Brussels Sprouts great, but a little greasy.
Good pasta. Excellent waiter. Divine salmon. Nice patio seating.
wonderful food and service...one of favorites...Try the lasagne and fried calamari and Caesar salad!
The roasted chicken house specialty is really great.
I was not happy that although we had a reservation were seated in the patio area, where it was chilly, while a party of three without a reservation was seated inside.
