Patio was open for dinner. We tried the short ribs and they were delicious. Definitely will order them again. We had an outstanding dining experience.

The food and the service were great. Lori, out waitress was super and very attentive.

However there was an adjacent table with a party of 10 that had kids running around unattended and adults were frequently entering and exiting a side door without masks to have a smoke outside.

Considering the covid situation, this should have been avoided.

Last day before they closed due to COVID. Menu is a little thin at the moment.

Also great food and love the seafood with pasta and the serving size is such great value--enough for another meal (at least for me).

We had the absolute best waitress. We sat right by the fireplace with a Christmas tree view. Our food and dessert were outstanding. I can’t say enough good. Wish I could remember waitress name. She was a gem!! It was our annual girlfriend group Christmas night out. We were not rushed and felt pampered.

Celebrated my Mother’s 73rd Birthday and was very disappointed when our server did not even add a candle to our paid dessert. I specifically wrote it was a very special dinner for my Mother. Good service but lacked that special simple touch. Would not return for a special occasion.

Delicious ambience and nice food. Bit chilly on the patio but makes sense in a pandemic. Spent under $200 for dinner for 4 which on Thanksgiving, I thought, was great. Soup coulda been a little hotter as we were on the patio.

We had a great lunch in their enclosed patio; a wonderful lunch menu with more than enough selections for a discriminating person. My wife had their sea food combination and enjoyed it, I had a chicken dish which was outstanding. I would recommend this restaurant as a first choice in dinning in Roseville.

We were there for my wife’s birthday. Even with the strict COVID-19 mitigation protocols, it was a nice dining experience. We felt safe with the distancing and the staff seemed to take care when interacting with us.
Under the circumstances, it was a very nice dinner.

We requested inside dining but all that was available was next to the kitchen with a breezy path to the front door. We asked if the outside had space and if it were warm enough. We moved and were delighted! Quiet, enclosed with overhead heaters! It had a fireplace for coziness, but was a bit dim. We asked if there was a candle available and were quickly accommodated! Perfect for our 56th wedding anniversary! And special since it was our first dinner out since March!

We sat outside in their covered patio and it was very comfortable. Noise level was low (although it was not crowded due to COVID restrictions). Fireplace at either end of the patio and overhead heaters. Very Nice. Food was excellent. Waiter seemed new but was efficient and kind.

We’re regulars at IF. I trust the people there to do the best food in the new Italian traditions and to keep us safe. I like the dish with scallops, shrimp, clam and mussels and pasta. That with the house Pinot Grigio is excellent.

During the pandemic, we have rarely eaten out. Il Fornaio was easily able to accommodate our wishes to sit outside (we had reservations). 2 adults, 2 teens. Cocktails were excellent (although the bar was backed up so we had to wait a few more minutes than usual). Appetizers were excellent also: bruscetta and calamari (some of the best fried calamari I've eaten in the US). My sons each had a cup of minestrone, which they reported was a little bland. Our entrees were all outstanding. 2 very good tiramisus (shared among the 4 of us) finished the evening. Excellent service except for the bar being backed up; it was a cold night and the patio was not heated (which was preferable to me and my family than sitting inside during the pandemic).

Waiter was terrible. Forgot we asked for sparkling water. Forgot we ordered a pizza appetizer. Drinks came without garnish and when we asked for the lime it too 20 minutes! Short ribs were cooked ok but very fatty. Will not return or recommend.

The staff did a good job of spacing out the tables and keeping things clean and safe. Service was good, food was delicious. It was a great experience. We sat on the patio and they had heaters and a fireplace which I wish we were closer to but it was lovely.

Usually we have a good experience in this restaurant however this time service was very slow we have to wait a long. Also Silver Wear ordinary in glass of water had lipstick marks around it from the previous customer. With the COVID-19 going on right now I don’t understand why this restaurant doesn’t keep their items clean we were very uncomfortable trying to eat the food and drink I mentioned this issue to two different waiters since our waiter was taking too long they totally ignored us. Then the bus boy change the glass and the silverware I had to clean myself with a napkin and water. We don’t feel comfortable returning to this restaurant until everything is going to be totally clean and sterile.

Our dinner reservation was for Tuesday at 5:45 (late October 2020). Our waitress, Madeline was attentive and friendly . The service was good and my husband and I both had the mixed seafood grill. Portions were perfect.

We enjoyed a nice quiet birthday dinner and received a salted caramel ice cream scoop at the end.
