This is my go to place for great Italian food in Pasadena. The service is always really good. They take reservations on OpenTable which makes it easier when you want to make last-minute reservations. The food is so great. I love so many of the pasta dishes. They have valet service right in front of Sephora of Colorado which makes it easy for parking. There's tons of shops around so you can have a great time. Their wine selection isn't large but they do have quite a few good wines. I definitely will go back.
Felt very rushed. Portions are getting smaller and prices going up
some food was cold but overall meal was fine. I will go back.
Had requested some stuff and they didn’t do anything if that
We came here for Valentine's Day with a gift card generously given to me at work. We have a great experience from the moment we walked in. Very friendly hostesses and a wonderful server who kept our evening going smoothly. It's in a great area so we could walk to some bars afterwards. The Spumoni gelato was awesome. We hope to come back!
Our service was absolutely stellar. The food was delicious. The whole experience was the perfect night out to celebrate our 25th Wedding Anniversary!
Great food and environment. We were originally seated near the patio door, which brought a draft each time the door opened. The wait staff was kind enough to re-seat us without a hassle. Thanks!
The food was ok. Flavor not very authentic for its value. Service from waitress was good but waterman wasnt very conscious in saving water as he kept filling the glass without asking.
We came for a romantic Valentine dinner ( a day early). The food and wine were both delicious and our waitress could not have been better. She was friendly, knew the menu and was attentive to us. The atmosphere was just right for us.
Our waitress Sylvia was attentive and checked on us often even with her having a few tables to serve. She is a native Italian with beautiful accent which made our dining experience even more authentic along with the great food we had (delicious mushroom pasta with black truffle).
Very good service. Food was very good.
At first I thought the noise would impede conversation, a pet peeve of mine. But it was tolerable. The service was prompt and courteous. We all enjoyed the food offerings.
Never fail me! Been there almost every other month.. The food is excellent and service is great...
first time at this location, but have been to their las vegas location a number of times.. excellent meal and service. would highly recommend
Wonderful service. Good menu. Nice wine list.
waitress was terrible. Unfamiliar with menu and not very friendly. Doubt I will go back again.
Service was good, waitress was very friendly, courteous and attentive. I and friends dined there to celebrate a birthday. Thrcdor salty dessert for the guest of honor was beautiful and decadent.
My wife and I went for dinner, enjoyed it! Going back again this week for our anniversary.
We arrived 2 minutes before our reservation and had to wait 23 minutes to be seated at a table that was available since walking in the door and probably about 40 people were seated before use that arrived AFTER we checked in for our reservation. I also requested a high chair in the comments when making the reservation but still had to ask twice and finally a manager brought one. The manager didn’t even really seem to care about our poor service either. One of our party members used to work with their corporate office and still has contacts there. They will most likely be informed.
Great time good food service was great. It was also quiet.
My boyfriend and I went to II-Fornaio for the first time to try out the dineLA menu. We thought it was reasonably priced for 4 courses. We got to the restaurant at least 10 minutes early, expecting we would maybe have to wait, and we pleasantly surprised to be seated in about 5 minutes. Everything looked fancy and tasted delicious. The service was pretty good. The only part of the meal we had to wait longer was for our desserts and to get our bill. Overall, I would go again for a special occasion or if there was a good deal on some of the items on the menu.
We love eating here l, whether date night or with our kids. Always great!!
Great food and not bad service. Ordered the chime. Penne pasta dish and it was light and yummy. it was connected to a bakery so it was a bit confusing to find.
If you are looking for fairly nice Italian food, DO NOT CHOOSE THIS ONE.
We hadn’t been to Il Fornaio in years so were pleased to find reliably good, fresh food and excellent service on our return. The risotto special was superb, the carpaccio light and bright, the kids’ pasta rich and simple. Desserts were luscious. Glad to be back on the West Coast to revisit one of our preferred dining venues.
It was my birthday so it was a special occasion..service a bit slow had to keep asking for our waitress..food was good..
We were in town for the Rose Parade and someone recommend this.
Simply Fantastic. Crappy table but that's my fault for reserving at the last minute.
Fantastic Food, Great wine list, and my wife. On NYE. Thanks Leanne Suter for the recommendation.
Consistently good quality, value, and service. Come here frequently.
Restaurant was in a nice location close to our hotel, the ambience was nice and relaxing, server was friendly and efficient, but we were disappointed with the meal. The food seemed average at best. We expected more for such a nice restaurant.
Great food prices service
