When we ordered the special for two we were told they did not know anything about an advertised special. When the wait staff asked a manager, which took some time, we were told this store is not offering this special. Our pasta dishes sat on the counter to long. One was room temperature on top and hot in the middle. The other had pasta stuck together in a ball with sauce on top. We have been to this restaurant many times in the past and have never experienced this type of service.

The chicken dish with fungi was on par with something from a corner diner or a truck stop. The place still shimmers with elegance but except for the bread, it is no longer the treat it used to be.

Judith the hostess was great she was very nice and welcoming. The food tastes like it was not fresh. We ordered, the 8 ounce rib eyes, shrimp pasta, seafood platter and it was all over cooked dry and mushy. Our appetizer was the calamari which tasted like it was previously frozen and the margahrita pizza which was actually good. I

With a reservation for 2 to celebrate a birthday, we were first led to the farthest table from main restaurant next to the street. Outside, on Capitol Mall, a loud food fair was taking place. I asked for an inside booth, and was told they are reserved for 3+ parties only. There were plenty of booths still open at 5:30 but we were given a small 2 top table a room over from the street noise. Much plate and glass maneuvering had to occur throughout our meal to accommodate our dishes. Although our meal was delicious, the ambiance and seating was not.

Had to get up and walk to where the waiters station was to ask for our check. We wanted to order more food, but not with that service. The waiter never came by to check on us at all after our food was served. The noise level was very loud. We sat in the semi outdoor structure, but there were several folks a few tables over literally yelling the entire time. We asked to be moved and were denied the opportunity even though there were empty tables. Would not recommend if you want a relaxing night out. Felt neglected the entire time.

The chicken was unsalted and so overcooked that I could not cook it. The antipasto platter was ridiculously small for the price. Our poor waitress was extremely overworked. More staff are needed, and some quality control in the kitchen needs to happen.

Waited for drinks forever, same with entrées. Salad came out quickly. We like Il Fornaio, this was our first time to this one. We’ll stick to the Roseville one from now on.

She then said to the other hostess “put them in Jose’s section”. We followed the hostess to a nice little table for two in a room off the main dining room. After being seated the waiter Jose promptly greeted us. He grabbed our drink order and upon returning shared with us the special of the evening. I watched him as he engaged the other tables. He knew when to approach and when to allow the guests to enjoy their conversation and meal. My wife and I asked him where he was from and he shared that he was from a little town outside Puerto Vallarta. Since we had just vacationed there it sparked a beautiful conversation and he shared some stories of the area. He was very engaging. Everything about our evening was enhanced by Jose. If you decide to dine at Ill Fornaio then I would highly recommend you request Jose as your server. He was polished, professional, and someone who takes great pride in their work. You will have a wonderful evening!

The server arrived as we finished and asked if there was anything else we needed. A glass of wine with dinner would have been nice! The meal was nothing like I expected it to be. The lasagna was bland at best and the surface was burned, leaving the taste of burned cheese.

Would suggest providing 3 hours of free parking as it would be more reflective of Italian dining experience and hospitality. I was not aware of the change of the policy and we incurred additional $36 of parking because we have 3 cars (different households) by enjoying our family gatherings at the restaurant.

The food was good, not great but also very over priced for the limited portions and the quality. Again it was good…just not $25 a small plate with almost no meat good. Overall we were disappointed. We joked about giving the old spaghetti factory (a place we both don’t care for) a try again, seemed like better value.

When you couple that with the prices, it's not ideal in my opinion. Service was friendly but absent minded. It's not a place we will visit again for dinner nor is it a place we regret going to

I was looking forward to a special dinner with my family. I have been to Il Fornaio’s several times previously. This time it was very disappointing. The restaurant did not have over half the items on the menu. Service was lousy and no one paid attention to any details. The ambiance was nice but everything else was mediocre.
