So SADDENED to hear of the closing of IL Fornaio. We have been dining there since the opening, 10 years ago. It was like a fine wine. It got better with age. Management was excellent and waitstaff very professional. Reston Towne Center is losing a "real gem"!
Great restaurant...never had a bad meal. Closest thing to Italy that we have found. So sad this location is closing. Hopefully they will decide to reopen at a new, nearby locatoon.
For the past five years we have dined here at least monthly; needless to say it was among our favorite restaurants. But we were shocked to learn that its corporate HQ in California has decided to close its only doors on the East Coast for good as of June 30th. What a pity; and a BIG MISTAKE on corporate's part! Ciao, Il Fornaio. You leave hundreds of Virginia faithful in the process!
We are sad to hear that Il Fornaio is leaving Reston Town Center. It was a great location with good Italian food. We'd celebrated many family get-togethers there. Heard that the lease renewal had too many issues that couldn't be resolved. Restaurant business is tough.
My husband and I love coming here and are so sad that it's closing down. Wish they would have another one open up in Northern VA instead of closing the only one existing in VA.
Best restaurant in Reston And its closing the end of the month. Very sad
Unfortunately, "Il Fornaio" Reston is closing!! we are devastated! Where else can we get 'high end" Italian food near by!! Wish they would open in a different location.
Ahi puttanesca was perfect. Kevin was a delight as our waiter.
Food has always been consistently good. If you want Italian you won't be disappointed. W enjoy the outdoor seating and it has a vibrant happy hour
A very good meal and good service. We were celebrating a special occasion and the restaurant payed attention to that with a complimentary dessert!
Our group had both vegetarians and non-vegetarians and we were pleased with the selection of food that was offered. Everyone loved the food, the ambiance, and the service. Our server was on top of her game and took excellent care of us throughout the night. We will definitely be back!
Nice dinner with a fun and very thoughtful server. The restaurant itself was very warm. The a/c did not appear to be working properly
This is the first time I am writing a review.
I took my parents to this place for Fathers day, my 97 year old father and his nurse arrived earlier than I, the hostess moved him to the bar area and made him wait for almost 15 min.
When we arrived and requested to be seated instead of sitting us with others in the white table cloth dinning they sat us at the end of the bar without any proper setting.
The waiter had no experience and did not have proper manners either, we all ordered eggs from brunch menu, since my father has a very restrict diet I ordered an egg white omelet for him, they refused to make him one, the explanation was they don't have egg whites, my dad had to eat fruit and bread, seems the kitchen doesn't know how to separate egg yolk from white.
I use to own several restaurant in Washington DC area, never ever seen such disrespect for customer.
Father's Day brunch
This restaurant never disappoints! Food,service and ambiance excellent!
