I’ve been to Il Fornaio several times. The food and service are always wonderful.
Very good, but disappointing that they no longer have the tasting menu option for the Festa Regionale.
Service and meal excellent. Marcelo is an excellent manager
It was our first time, the waiter was very helpful and friendly and got us bruschetta on the house. It was extremely fresh and delicious. My husband ordered the fettuccine Alfredo with smoked salmon and I got the capellini pomodoro and both were amazing. We concluded our meal with a cafe latte for hubby and dark chocolate ice cream for me they were truly the cherry on top. Definitely recommend this restaurant and will be back if we are in the area!
We go to Il Fornaio on a monthly basis, and this time we found they had made several changes! I liked it the way it was, so I was a bit worried. The foods still come from a particular area of Italy, but it's just handled a different way. By the time we finished the evening, we decided we actually liked the new way because there's more freedom to order from the night's menu in combination with their regular menu. Apparently, it's also easy for groups because no one has to wait while others finish a particular part of the menu, like the pasta section and then the main dish. The food was particularly delicious this evening, too. It will be interesting to see how it goes in the coming months, but it seems like some thoughtful changes.
The location is not so good, the GPS can never take you to the front door, it will always tell you that you have arrived but you may not. The parking building is so complicated, it takes you 20 mins to find you car. Food is good, but the location is horrible.

Came for a birthday, their birthday song turned out to be the best part of the evening. Sea Bass was ok, but i would not order it again. Waiter was less than prompt (received my glass of wine near the end of my meal.) Very underwhelming visit.
Good value , good taste and big portions
