An excellent Italian restaurant

Good food, no doubt. The menu is surely appreciated by non-Italians for the Italian sound of the words. Honestly I never heard about 80% of the dishes in the menu. Well, I learnt some new Italian dishes. Nothing to dislike, however.

Where I live, no one has happy hour, so I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Il Fornaio for a quick trip to the mall and it was Happy Hour. We enjoyed 2 cocktails and 2 appetizers for under $30. It was relaxing and fun and the ambiance was lovely.

Great service. We had a large party but didn't have a reservation because we were only stopping by for a few nights. They accommodated all 18 of us without a complaint and seated us within 20 minutes. Worth the price. Everything was delicious, especially the bread.

Il Fornaio is a chain - but unlike most other restaurant chains - the food and service are consistently good. They do Petrle Sole almost as well as the Tadich Grill. (and that is a high standard). Their pasta dishes are a mix of consistent and special creations. I've never had a bad experience at this place.

Always good service and quality food. This is great for drinks, a first date or a large party. My favorite is the pasta pomodoro with grilled shrimp. And I always splurge on the affogado--espresso over vanilla bean gelato.

We had our daughters rehearsal dinner here. The food was fabulous. The staff was great! So nice and friendly. The food was wonderful Italian cuisine. I had the roast chicken with potatoes, wow! I couldn't get enough of those potatoes! I would have licked my plate clean if my wife would have let me. I would definitely eat here again
