Il Fornaio - Sacramento
Book your next event with us
Staff are friendly and efficient. We were there on a Friday night, and our table was ready to go. It was my second visit; the service and food consistently good, and I appreciate the variety of price points on the menue. I won’t hesitate to come back with a small or a large party.
Excellent food. A bit expensive.
Wonderful experience, and loved our waiter Andre and his thoughtfulness.
Good service and good food. Just not over the top
Loved the ambiance and food; unfortunately had a real hard time understanding our waiter. The waiter had such a strong accent that getting our questions answered was hard.
Great Service. Nice Ambience. Very tasty meal. Convenient to Golden 1 Center.
Excellent dinner. All 4 of us enjoyed our delicious meals. Perfect service. Thank you.
Wonderful food, ambiance, and service! Our server, Jose, was excellent!
It was New Year’s Eve and the place was great food was great and our servers were awesome
Being my birthday, I wanted a quiet place to enjoy a romantic dinner with my fiance.
We were given a nice table for two in a nice part of the restaurant away from the bar.
It was all going well when six people arrived and were given the six seat table next to us.
From the moment they sat down they were so noisy that we couldn't even hear ourselves talking.
We had to raised our voices so much that we were almost screaming to each other.
The high pitched laughter from two of the women was almost unbearable.
Although the food was great and the service excellent, next time I will search for a quieter restaurant.
Love come to El Fornaio. Service is great, very attentive and such a great atmosphere
Food was great as usual however my wife has a sensitivity to gluten and suffered through the pain after dinner. However whenever she has food that’s made from organic pasta and flour she suffers no side affects. Therefore we wish organic wheat products were used at your restaurant. Otherwise our experience was great! Thanks!
Girlfriends end of the year dinner
Food and service is excellent parking is easy. The price of food in general is expensive
Wonderful time... Great food ...Fantastic service! We really enjoyed ourselves! Thank you... Thank you Very Much! @)---)---
This is a very beautiful restaurant. Great menu, food was amazing, and our server was fantastic.
Horrible service waiting over an hour and forty minutes for food and little comfort or even explanation from the waitress
Our Christmas Eve dinner was lovely. Great service. Food was delicious. Love the ambiance during the Christmas Season. Thank you.
We love our Christmas Eve tradition of coming to this beautiful, friendly, delicious restaurant.
All was great. Your waitress (Courtnie) was a delight, always with a beautiful smile!
The setting is beautiful, downtown Sacramento, validated parking. Wine is priced reasonably by restaurant standards. Wine by the glass available in 4 & 6 oz servings. My wife ordered roasted chicken, moist with nice sauce. I ordered pasta tagliatelle bolognese, hearty and fine winter dish. Location, setting , food and service would make Il Fornaio a good restaurant for couples or a group.
Dinner with family
If the question is where to go for nice atmosphere and good food, then I'd recommend Il Fornaio if they've got a bunch of money to spend on a meal. A dozen pieces of pasta with a sauce should not break the bank!! My cocktail was good but way too costly. I small scoop of gelato - $8.00!!! The mark up is ridiculous! I cannot afford to go back again.
Christmas with family
My tilapia entree was excellent, and my friend's salad was very good also. Our server, Haley was outstatnding.
Great vibe, friendly atmosphere, variety of wine options and food menu.
Lovely evening with neighbors. Excellent service. Food never disappoints. Delightful dining experience.
My friends and I chose the restaurant for our Christmas get together dinne. Our experience there was horrible. First our waitress Beverly was not
attentive to us. Took her so long to get our orders and felt like we were burdens to her. And seemed very rushed and rude. Our dinner was awful. I ordered this chicken pasta that was so dry and no flavor and only had three pieces of small bite chicken in it. Our drinks so so tiny and the price was not worth it at all. Needless to say our time there was horrible.
Never again that we will be back and told other friends and colleagues about our awful experience .
Wonderful holiday setting and fabulous food. The lasagna was outstanding.
Food was delicious and they offered an amazing selection of gluten free food to accommodate my food allergies.
Split breast chicken was very flavorful in one dish. The pasta dish however needed more sauce and more vegetables, it was disappointing.
Best service, hot food that’s delicious. Impressive wine list and the best calamari appetizer. Going back in four days!
You could feel the festive spirit of Il Fornaio this time of year with the food, with every table taken, and the smiles on everyone's face.
is was to busy on that day, service was slow and food was not good.
lively bar scene and very accommodating staff... servings are perfect... menu options adequate... been here twice and hasn't failed
Excellent food, everything was so tasty. Only downside was that the waitress goofed on our order and bill TWICE. I’m not sure why she brought A while pizza as an appetizer when we asked for bruschetta, but it was good and we didn’t bother sending it back. Everything on the menu sounded delicious and it was hard to choose one thing anyway
We had reservations. We waited at least 30 minutes after ordering wine before it arrived at our table. Our waitress rarely checked on us and wasn’t pleasant at all. The special I ordered was tasteless. We were extremely disappointed in the experience and will never return.
Our server was excellent… I’m sorry I don’t remember her name.
Waited 20 minutes for a server to come before I left. This place is a joke.
