Recently enjoyed a nice lunch with a friend. We sat "outside", which is really a covered patio area and nice and warm. Lovely restaurant, impeccable service. Nice menu with some good choices, pizza, pasta, and salads. Not your typical Italian restaurant. It's more upscale. Definitively will come here again!
Wonderful place to visit and enjoy a delicious meal with friends.
Food and service were both very good. However, we were seated on the porch on a cold night. Some of the heaters were not reliably working, and we had to request to move to a different table. The heater was better, but the temperature varied between cool and too hot.. An upscale restaurant like Il Fornaio can do better than this.
Excellent evening. The food and service was outstanding. We will be back.
Absolutely scrumptious cuisine--we all had the regional menu. The management is wonderful and all servers attentive. I think it is the best restaurant in Sacramento......elegant, but not fussy.
Thank you for consistently delicious food and a beautiful ambience.
Great dinner and fun evening. Veal Scallapini was wonderful as was the Vodka Pasta. The desert was supposed to be warm but was not. Everything else was wonderful.
We were her to celebrate my birthday. Every person we were in contact were especially friendly. The food was very good. My husband had the ravioli from the regional menu and they were excellent. We would definitely recommend it to others and come back ourselves.
All seven of us enjoyed the wait staff, the quality of the food and the atmosphere. Location is excellent and enjoyed a nice walk afterwards. Will be back.
Loved this place. First time going there and it was on Valentine’s Day. I made reservations and as soon as i got there our table was ready. Our waiter was extremely nice but not a fake nice. Like a real nice lol. I would definitely recommend this place. I was scared when the bill came to the table because I figured it would be extremely expensive but it was only 36$ and we got drinks. Loved this place! I will be back. Hope you guys go.
It was great
Good food, very nice setting, wish our waiter treated us a little better. Soon as he found out the table sitting next to us had lots money and bought the last bottle of a very expensive champagne he started to treat us different and paid more attention to the other party, plan to visit again just hoping for a different waiter
Food was sensational as always. People go out of their way to accommodate you. Magnifico! Grazi Il Fornaio!
Our food was awesome, especially the steak and our server Michelle was great.
Great food and ambience. We will definitely be back with friends to enjoy your restaurant again.
