I met a friend for lunch on a Thursday and could not have more pleased. The layout is open and tables are not crowded so noise was not a problem. We were seated at a table for four which was quickly modified for two which was nice. Our waitress was well informed and respected our desire to talk and not... More

First thanksgiving dinner out in 25 years. Found out late that eating out was necessary. Il Fornaio was able to accommodate us . I had been to this restaurant some years ago, so was looking forward to a repeat. Lovely thanksgiving day menu. Food and service were great. We had a very attentive waiter. I was disappointed that the restaurant... More

First, I don't know about price, it was a business dinner and I did not pay attention to that ;) We spent a great night. The waiter was very nice, his wine's choices were pretty good. The Colorado Lamb was amazing. Great place for a business dinner or maybe for face to face dinner.

We stopped in here on the spur of the moment while in town on business. Not having reservations we had to wait for a table, even though there appeared to be quite a few tables open. Maybe they were all reserved I can't say. Once were were seated he service was pretty good, although for a place that tries hard... More

Our food and service was outstanding. During our meal, a bottle of wine inadvertently slipped out of an employee's hands. Although neither wine nor glass hit us, the manager checked on us to make sure all was well. She gave each of us a free appetizer/dessert card. Combined with our already great lunch, this extra touch left us with a... More

6 of us stopped in for a business dinner. Beautiful evening, sat out on the patio. Ordered the sharing appetizers. Specifically asked for Proscuitto de San Daniele, which they had, the sign of a true Italian restaurant. Good selection of meats. Excellent wine selection, mostly Italian. Pasta courses were all cooked very well, all in the group were in agreement.... More

They put on a lot of flash with elegant waiters and serving food from a cart but the food is not that good. It is very salty and expensive. I had veal that was tough. The appetizers were the best part. I would say the food is what you would expect from a chain but more expensive.
