Thanks again to our wonderful server Sherri who is simply the best. We received excellent service last night and Sherri is 100% responsible for that. She's truly one of the reasons why we love dining at Il Fornaio Corte Madera.

Grazie!

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.

Consistently good on all fronts. Even on Valentine's Day (our last visit). Meals did come out at a slower pace but nothing was compromised.

JFood was very good but service to begin with was very slow. Short on staff and our waiter had too many tables to cover.

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.
