About

This restaurant is permanently closed. In the tradition of Italy's trattorias, the sight, sounds and aromas of authentic Italian cuisine are recreated fresh everyday at Il Fornaio. Literally "the baker" in Italian, Il Fornaio offers wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade and imported pastas; pizzas from a wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; antipasti and a wide variety of desserts made daily from scratch. The first two weeks of each month a special menu from a different region of Italy is featured as part of Festa Regionale.

Parking at Il Fornaio Garage will always be 2 hours free for our guests. Please check in with us when you arrive.

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.
