I love the decor and the idea of the Italian theme/menu but the food is all so slathered with fat. It is pricey and they run out of certain dishes which is dissappointing because I don't care for much on the menu. Some folks like this restaurant I guess because I always see there are plenty of people eating there.... More

Not since my Grandmother in San Francisco made Gnocchi for me over 50 years ago have I found one recipe as good. But, last night, I took my wife to dinner and found one very very close. I was really surprised. I stopped trying at restaurants years ago. I saw Gnocchi on the menu last night and out of curiosity... More

Ourselves, friends and family have visited many Il Fornio's over the last 15 years. We have enjoyed the cuisine at the Roseville restaurant on numerous occasions in the past. Living in Sacramento, there are not many quality Italian restaurants that provide the choices that Il Fornio does. Unfortunately, something has changed. Quality,value and service has decreased. They lost that edge... More

It's a pretty place, but we weren't overly wowed. Appetizer was good, entrees so so, Cocktails fairly priced, but my cosmo tasted off, the mix wasn't right and the glass was not chilled. Entrees were so so, my steak was drowned in demi-glace that was oversalted, and their yukon gold mashed potatoes that they seem to be so proud of... More

Remembered how terrific Il Fornaio was when I lived in California, and really wanted to revisit it when I headed back to CA on business and was not disappointed. While a savvy traveler, had an incredibly frustrating time finding the restaurant - eventually had to call to ask exactly where it was located in a sprawling development, but it was... More

We have eaten here on many occasions including date nights, special dinners with the kids and we even scheduled our company holiday party at Il Fornaio. It is great Italian food in a great atmosphere with great service. It is a reliable place for a... More

Walk ins after shopping. Great service, good fish and pasta. Everyone in our party was happy with their entree. Spinach salad was split for us and was excellent. Busboys had bread and water refills available as we needed. Had not been here for a while and was impressed with the mood of the restaurant and the service .

Nice to have an upscale restaurant available in the mall. Excellent service. Large plates. Pork marsala had two tender slices of meat, spinach, and roasted potatoes. Pasta with seafood had an delicious tomato pesto sauce and was loaded with seafood. Try the dessert sampler. WOW!! tiramisu,lime cheesecake, chocolate mousse cake, sorbet and cookies. Creamy, smooth,outstanding!! Wine by the glass and... More
