    Asked for a manager once seated after I  observed some concerns. His name was Mohamand. When he arrived at the table, I handed him a  wine glass with some crusty food on the outside and asked him if we pay for the extra food.  Mohmand, the "manager : said "No you don't.  We'll take it back and clean it." No apology. No other conversation. However, watching him with other guest he was all smiles and talkative. Could it be because we were two women? He sure seemed more courteous when there was a man in the party. Also, the two wine glasses left on the table were also dirty. We weren't drinking wine so we just put them aside. Since he wasn't happy to help us the first time. Then I asked him about a bucket and rag sitting on the other side of our window on a table that was on their outdoor patio.  He says "yeah, that's our bucket and rag we use to clean the tables.I said do we have to look at that while we eat? He replies. "Would you like to move to another table?  So let me get this right. First, your solution is to have us, your customer, pick up and move to a diffetent table vs. removing the bucket & dirty and rag. And second, your telling me you use the same dirty water and dirty rag to clean your tables all day & evening AND you leave it on a table top for all to see while eating? After pushing back on me about it being in my view he has someone else move it to another spot on the same table top where I can't see it. And before I had finished my salad it was back where it was originally sat. To top it off, he never once came back to check on us.

    Excellent excellent excellent. Beautiful restaurant, good wine list, inspired menu with fresh ingredients and beautiful prepared dishes. Pretty good value too, looks like the happy hour is really good and my non happy hour solo dinner was $50 with 9oz wine, soda, bread, and the penne alla vodka

    We were delighted with the regional menu and great support of our waitress for the evening. Il Fornaio is a place to go with friends, enjoy great food in a great atmosphere.

    Another wonderful dinner at Il Fornaio. The scallops were delicious! The only disappointment was with the profiteroles for dessert. Those baby cream puffs were stale😔
