Food was excellent. Just the seating arrangement for our group was terrible
Had soup (Lentil - Farro) and salad (Fornaio version of Caesar). Soup had no taste, lettuce was not crisp. Wife had butternut squash ravioli which was "pasty/grainy". Were heart shaped so perhaps left-over from a Valentine special. Top and bottom pasta were not sealed at edges which led to messy eating and I only finished the soup. The ravioli was not worth finishing. Best item was the french bread. I can't remember having a meal so disappointing. Note: we've been very pleased with the Corte Madera Il Fornaio and expected similar quality. Certainly wasn't the case. I'm kicking myself for not complaining about the quality at the time. I just won't go back to this restaurant.
Outstanding service--our waiter was Richard--and exceptional food. The restaurant made it a terrific night out. Plus a spacious, clean restroom. IL FORNAIO is top-notch; very accommodating to the table I had reserved for and gladly held the table for me being 30 mins. late. Looking forward to going back. Soon.
A fantastic time for a special valentines night I had
Great way to celebrate Valentines Day. Food was great and service was attentive and friendly
The service was abadj g and the food was superb. The Bolognese is 5 stars!
Valentines Day lunch with my husband
Excellent service and our lunch was outstanding!
I proposed to my longtime girlfriend, who is now my fiancée and was met with celebrating by not only the customers in attendance, but the staff as well. The head chef, took it upon themselves to also see our dining experience was perfect. I will definitely go here again and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys authentic Italian cuisine manifested in its purest form of perfection.
Service was horrible! The restaurant wasn’t full yet we were forgotten about for an hour; our waitress disappeared and was nowhere to be seen. She kept saying it wasn’t even her section but that wasn’t our problem. She was our waitress, regardless of section, so she should have been more attentive. We had to flag down busboys and other servers to find her.
My friend and I came here for Restaurant Week. Their menu was pretty good. I chose the bruschetta, capellini al pomodoro, chicken w/ spinach & potatoes plus tiramisu. All this for $40! Not a bad deal at all. The capellini is a simple angel hair pasta with chopped tomatoes and marinara sauce. The chicken was really good and I took the leftovers home and finished it that same night. Dessert was delicious as well. I cleaned off this plate. I would say the bruschetta was my least favorite. I would definitely come back. Staff were friendly and always around when we needed something.
