Good food with good friends. Wait staff did not rush us even though they were pretty busy. Enjoy going there for different occasions.

I found the food to be a bit disappointing. I had gnocci that was smothered with red meat sauce and a small salad that wasn't much other than lettuce. I should have gone with the cream sauce or the gnocci because I could barely taste the pasta. The salad was served only when my friend mentioned I hadn't gotten it, but I was already through with my entree.

This place was fantastic. The service was great, the food was delicious, great ambience. I had the butternut squash pasta and also the beet salad. Both were very tasty. Had tiramisu for dessert which was also very good.

We spent a Thanksgiving at Il Fornaio this year when no family was in town. It was a special night with delicious food and ambiance. The service is always wonderful. We spend many special occasions here as well as an evening of dining.

We dined here for Thanksgiving. Portions were large, however, the food was a bit bland. I was disappointed in the Pumpkin Pie. Small piece and asked for more whipped cream......a bit pricey at $10.

Had Thanksgiving dinner with all the fixings. Ample portions and everything tasted good. The vegetarian was able to order a great pasta dish. As always, the fresh made bread was awesome. Best of all....We all had leftovers! Salute!

Excellent Thanksgiving Dinner experience at Il Fornaio. The Wine selections, general menu,
Thanksgiving offering selections in particular as well as the service and ambiance made for
a great Thanksgiving Dining Experience.

On our short trip to Roseville, CA, we ate at Il Fornaio twice because it was so good. The first night we had a wonderful waiter who gave us suggestions on the food and options on portions. He was very attentive and the food was outstanding. The next night we took friends with us who were familiar with Il Fornaio in their home town of San Jose, CA. The four of us had a wonderful meal. None of us had any complaints at all. Excellent choice for dinner.

Food is always good but this time, it was a little "off." Pasta was somewhat dry and needed some salt. Risotto was barely warm. Could be because we were a group of 14?

Food was pretty bland and overpriced for the quality. Thought it might just be what we ordered but then overhead the table next to us discussing the poor quality seafood dish they ordered. Too bad as the restaurant is elegant and pleasing to the eye. Service was good.

Overall it was great again, but when you request to be seated at a certain table that isn't occupied on a Monday night it should happen. It didn't, so we had to ask for it. Then fortunately we were almost done with dinner, but the host sat a couple right next to us when there were probably 40 other tables in the restaurant available and another fireplace they could have turned off it that is what the other folks requested. That was extremely frustrating since it was our anniversary.

My wife and I are frequent visitors at both the Roseville and Sacramento locations. The atmosphere is fantastic and the staff warm and friendly. The quality and taste of the cuisine is always consistent. I would highly recommend Il Fornaio for any occasion. They never fail to satisfy my taste buds.

Checked in on time, waited at the bar for 35 minutes. We were never called for a table. We decided to eat at the bar. We waited for 10 minutes for water, another 10 minutes for wine. Very slow and poor service. Our salad was good, but our meal was virtually tasteless. Very disappointed. We have had good experiences here before, but not this one.

I’ve been here a number of time before but this time was not good. The food was average at best, the service was terrible (over 1:30 wait for food). Other table who sat after us were served before us. Most likely my last time here. Drive to sacramento and go to biba instead.

Il Fornaio is our most popular Roseville Restaurant - we have enjoyed numerous meals over the years and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh, tasty and the service first class.
It is our go-to restaurant for Anniversaries, birthdays and all special occasions.
I wish I could eat there every night!
