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

Never a bad meal. The waiter was very kid friendly. I think his name is Shane. He was the best waiter and I was told kids ask to be sat in his section.

This restaurant has always been one of our favorites, but tonight we had one of the worst meals ever: limp, tasteless salad, pathetic pasta with no taste whatsoever, and the worst veal imaginable--probably bought from one of those restaurant suppliers who provide frozen entrees.. The bread baskets here used to be a delight--with artisan breads. Now the bread basket is... More

The special for the evening was a sliced beef tenderloin dish that defies the search for superlatives! In addition to my wife's pleasant pasta dish, a standard minestrone cup and salad, the special, followed by a key lime pie cheesecake made for a very nice evening. The wine list is ample, but I wouldn't recommend the sangiovese, which was pallid.
