Food was poorly prepared probably the result of some large parties that took priority over a dinner for two or new cooking staff. We were very disappointed with the quality and flavor. Not our typical experience.

We had a wonderful dinner. We were not rushed even though they were very crowded and had multiple group events going on. We started with a shared caprese salad followed by bowls of house made minestrone soup then two outstanding pasta dishes. Our waiter did a great job in the pacing of the dishes and pouring of the wine. It was a relaxing evening meal.

My friend ordered the Risotto and sent it back. She then ordered the lamb chops and said they were mediocre. Another friend ordered the seafood pasta and said it was bland.
The service was great and the ambiance was very nice. We were seat in front of a cozy fireplace.

After a VERY LONG day trip to San Francisco, we decided to dine at Il Fornaio. You see, our original plan had been to dine in North Beach in San Francisco after securing Global Entry at SFO, but the timing wasn't right. So, our taste buds whetted for Italian food, and having four hours (yes, four hours!) of heavy traffic on our return trip to Roseville to salivate over delectable dishes, we went online and secured a reservation for later in the evening. None of us have ever had a bad meal there, and Friday night was no exception. The service was great, and the food was solid. A perfect way to unwind from the mind-numbing stop-and-go traffic on I-80.

The descriptions of our meals vs what we got were
Way off. The food has gone downhill. We had been there in December and it was very good. We had gone back in February hoping it would be just as good but it was just ok. But this last time in March was not good. We will not be back.

Very disappointed with our dining experience. Service was slow though the restaurant wasn’t busy. I ordered a glass of Prosecco which was FLAT and I had to ask for another.
The biggest disappointment was the meal I ordered for my mother and myself. It was described as filled cannelloni that was supposed to be baked but what we got were similar to crepes , with a mushy filling and a terrible gloopy Alfredo sauce. Yuck!! When the server came back and asked how the first few bites were tasting, I told him it wasn’t what I expected and he just walked away.
We had my elderly parents with us and it’s rare that they feel up to going out for dinner so this was a major disappointment. I don’t think we’ll be back.

Have visited the restaurant many times and always enjoyed the food. However, this time it seems quite loud--not sure why.
Service was excellent and food good. Will return and hopefully the issue with noise will have been addressed.

For a Sunday afternoon, it was very quiet. We were placed in the farthest area of the restaurant, far from other diners. Seemed very odd. The food was good but, of the 3 orders of eggs benedicts that were served, they were all over cooked. 2 were sent back. The kitchen quickly turned those orders around so that we did not have to wait too long. The new plates turned out delicious. Everyone else in our group seemed to enjoy their meals. Our wait staff were very attentive and wanted to make our meal special. A very nice experience to be sure.

Not that it was the fault of the seaters but they sat 6 noisy loud gentlemen next to us. It was very hard to hear ourselves to visit. The food was good I had a special and so did both of my friends, had a different special however, it was not but slightly warm, my one friend sent hers back to reheat it as it was cold, some of that is because we were talking and visiting but mine was even cold in part of it.

Il Fornaio did a wonderful job recognizing my wife's birthday and placing us in a good location to increase our special time together. They were gracious with some surprise appetizers and a post dinner dessert. The service was spot on and the cocktails were fresh and creative. If you want to satisfy your good Italian food cravings this is the place.
