Always consistent

Il Fornaio is a place to go for tasty, consistent food. We typically go with friends and like to sit on the patio or outdoors. The new salted caramel Gelato is really good!

Been to a few Il Fornaios and this location is in the bottom third.. Appetizers were cold and the salad was flat/not crisp. The Service was slow and frankly I expect much much more.

Though this is part of a national chain, one gets the feeling of local concern and quality. We had previous eaten at this location and for this visit to Roseville, we chose to have dinner here for two successive night. Both evenings we had excellent meals. Service was reasonable. There offer a broad selection to chose from. My wife enjoyed... More

We used to come here often for a bite to eat after checking out the mall, but the times have changed... We sat in the bar area to grab dinner and drinks.... They have a wide ranging menu.... The atmosphere is nice... The food needs some help.... The pizza was lukewarm... The calamari was really overcooked.. It took forever to... More

Il Fornaio is a chain. Perhaps that explains why our food looked and tasted like it was prepared in some industrial kitchen geared to please the masses with limited investment in ingredients and robotic service. Nothing to really complain about, I suppose, but nothing to make me want to return. If I'm going to spend that kind of money for... More

We recently had dinner for 16 people and were impressed with very good food, friendly service and good wine choices ( more so for bottles than glasses). They also have a prix fixe menu for 3-course dinners. It's a bit pricey but definitely worth a try.

I went here for the first time because I was craving pasta, but after looking at the menu decided upon Petto Di Pollo Al Peperoncino. I am very glad I did. The chicken was extremely tasty, and I substituted the sauteed spinich for vegetables. The chicken has a spicy sauce on it, and I love spicy food, so it was... More

I have had several dinners at Il Fornaio and all of them have been excellent. Their menu is varied and interesting and the service is always attentive. Il Fornaio is our choice whenever we have a special occasion to celebrate.

Good service in an elegant setting with a good menu. Il Fornaio has consistent excellence throughout the Change. I have eaten in many locations from Beverly Hills to Del Mar, and Carmel and now in Roseville.

Thought we'd give it a 2nd try a year after our first visit. Slowest service we've ever had at any restaurant. Ten minutes after we finished our meal and declined dessert, we had to ask for our check. Several minutes later we asked another server to bring us our check. Finally, a few minutes later our server brought it. The... More
