Description: Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. Il Fornaio means "the Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique Italian dining experience. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; a wide variety of desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch. Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2007.

Food is great. Service is great. A little noisy, but not as much as other restaurants. We return time and again.

I have experienced more below average Italian fare at this restaurant then i can ever justify.Recently had another family meal which was forgettable as it was being served.I keep hoping that one day they might find an Italian chef and put some decent food on the plate.

Always consistent after so many years, a pleasure to sit in this well lit restaurant and eat simple italian fare. Pasta with sausage, grilled chicken, Titamisu. A glass of Chianti and my day is saved. No complaints at all in this old-timer who spearheaded the open kitchen concept. A place you feel welcomed. Lunch only.

We have dined at Il Fornaio in San Francisco, Beverly Hills, and Pasadena and it never disappoints. The food is delicious, consistent, authentic and offers excellent value. Our favourites are the lasagne, cannelloni and the seafood pasta. The pasta is always served "piping hot" and stays that way for a long time. This is a must for me. The service... More
