Il Fornaio - Sacramento
Book your next event with us
Had another delicious meal at Il Fornaio in Sacramento! The food and service at this location are consistent and reliable. Plus I love the magnificent architecture in the building where Il Fornaio is located!
We asked for a corner table and were happy our request was perfectly filled. Our server was professional, helpful and accommodating; it was a pleasure being served by her.
My carpaccio dish was a revelation and my friend thoroughly enjoyed her mixed meat polenta dish, ordered from the chef’s special dish menu.
All in all, a fine meal, served with gracious hospitality.
I have been going here for over 10 years. Great food and a great experience.
Delicious as always. Beautiful ristorante. Good service.
Il Forniao was outstanding, as usual. We enjoyed dishes off the regional menu. It’s a great place for special occasions and everyday dining. If you want to take someone somewhere where you want to make sure they’re not disappointed, you can trust this is the place.
Great food and service! Wish they had a bigger selection of dessert wines.
This is our favorite place for special meals with friends in the area. Ambience is great for upbeat, see-and-be seen meals but noisy and too highly lighted for romantic situations.
Wonderful professional staff. The fish dinners we ordered were wonderful. Sole and Salmon. We brought an elderly friend with us and I called ahead to ask that his vegetables be cut up for him without us making the request in front of him. All was done without a hint of the request and served beautifully. Il Fornaio is a class act restaurant with lovely immaculately kept environment.
Great service. Food was very good but not exceptional. Drinks top notch.
Great place to get dinner before a Kings game! Great food and wonderful service!
It was awesome! Super friendly server!
Nice out of the way Italian dinner in the lobby of the Wells Fargo commercial building. It's a high celing, open plan diner with an accompanying bar and open view kitchen. This lends itself to a moderately loud atmosphere. Great menu options, reasonably priced for the type of restaurant it is. Range of authentic meals and desserts.
wait staff impeccable service
wine delicious and let us taste several prior to ordering which was most appreciated!
Came late and shut the place down, yet never felt rushed
A beautiful venue, a beautiful night
we will be back!'

It was the most romantic setting for our date night! I loved everything about it, from the ambiance to the soft sound of people conversing to the Italy like feel. The food was exquisite and the drinks were a delight! We love Cabernet and their selection was perfect and not over the top. Our waiter was attentive and made our night memorable. Thanks for having such a great establishment.
Lovely atmosphere for special celebrations. Service is excellent. Our food was prepared to perfection. Thanks!
The food was a bit sub-par this time around but they were slammed and it was still a good night. Steak was over-cooked and my pasta was watery. This was unusual but we attributed it to the crazy crowds on NYE.
We had reservations for 8. A few of us arrived early & the hostess let us know our table would be ready soon. We were seated on time. It was NYE & they were still serving their regular menu plus several daily specials. All of our food arrived together & in reasonable time for such a busy, large restaurant. All of our meals were delicious. Our server was also accommodating of any menu changes. We all had a great experience and would dine her again.
Most attractive restaurant in Sacramento. Food is very good Italian (more Italian-Italian than Italian-American).
Delicious New Year's Eve dinner. Special thanks to our young Italian waiter - he was knowledgeable, efficient and gracious. He and the chef agreed to add artfully arranged strips of grilled salmon to Il Fornaio's outstanding butternut squash pasta, upon my request.
Our table for two was a bit uncomfortable because the heavy round base took up all of the floor space.
The high ceilinged main dining room is elegant. Il Fornaio also has private party rooms which we have enjoyed with guests after local meetings. A real neighborhood gem.
We were disappointed at the food. It was a little greasy.
Also, the Wine was a little flat. Since it was a special occasion New Year's Eve, we didn't want to ruin the date. Thanks
Superior, responsive service as usual. The Montepulciano wine was excellent. Many menu choices reflected an authentic Italian flair. When you look around and see some waiters who have been there for years, you know that it must be a great place to work, as well. We have dined there many times and will be back again soon. The food is consistently excellent. Mille Gracie!
After I submitted my review of Il Fornaio expressing disappointment in our dining experience, I was very pleasantly surprised to hear from the restaurant management. Their understanding made me feel much better and we will be returning to give it another try. My impression of their service is now higher.
Great dinner before Golden One performance! Food is wonderful and the architecture is beautiful!
Was way too smoky for us compared to other locations.
Hannah our server made Christmas Eve special! The decor was festive. Thank you for a great evening!
Christmas Eve dinner
The food was excellent, but the service was poor. Initially it took 20mins for the server to come over and introduce herself and take our drink orders. The water and bread was placed on the table prior to the order. My cup of soup had been forgotten before the main meal was served. Our two parking tickets were not validated properly and we ended up paying $14 x 2 to exit the parking garage. The servers are usually impeccable and on-point. Hopefully this incident will not happen to us again.
The Ambience Exmp; Birthday, Anniversary, etc..
A beautiful restaurant with some very good service. We sat at the bar rather than a table. Colin was our server and did a fantastic job of pacing dinner, and providing excellent wine tips.
A beautiful holiday setting with a vibrant Italian cuisine made this a special evening for our family
We have been coming here for special occasions for many years and are never disappointed.
I love the squash ravioli!!
Great wine list, food and ambience. Had a great, romantic time with my girlfriend
I have never eaten a bad or even mediocre meal at il Fornaio. Top quality food - tasty and fresh. Service is impeccable - just the right amount of friendliness, professionalism, energetic and fun. Highly recommend il Fornaio.
Said needs to do a little more training. Our Hungarian server was very nice and very good except that she wasn't attentive. I had to get up twice and remind her to bring the wine and the coffee.
Great food! Great service! Our server, Keith, was amazing.
One of Sacramento’s finest restaurants. The dining experience, food and service here is always outstanding! I would recommend it to everyone.
Consistent excellent cuisine; superb service; wonderful ambience!
Great experience. They followed my special instructions very well.
My party was placed in the banquet room. It was perfect for our party of nine. The service was outstanding. Matteo and his fellow staff were very attentive to our needs. The food was excellent. We will be back.
Always a favorite. Special occasion for daughter’s big 18th birthday.
It was busy for holidays and they never disappoint. Great fun, food and memories.
