This is a great restaurant in a great area. I was in town for work nearby and didn't want to do into downtown and wanted something different. The food was tasty with great service, and it didn't take long to get our meals. We sat outside on a beautiful evening. The butternut squash ravioli was wonderful (ask for a side... More

The service was excellent. The waitress could not do enough. She made us feel like she was her only table. The food was very good. We look forward to going again.

Of our group, everyone liked their food. I like that they do a monthly menu where you choose a starter, pasta course and main course-2 of our party had that and were very happy. Lasagna was good but needed more sauce. Other pasta dish, salads also good. Wine list had many good choices, large children's menu, plenty of dessert options.... More

If you are looking for good food, a great wine list, tremendous service in a very convenient location look no farther Il Fornaio is a great choice. Both for business or pleasure, I would strongly recommend. We chose it for a business dinner this week, and we're more than pleased.

Pasta ordered was not cooked through and was still crunch on the inside. Returned dish and received a replacement the say way. Cooking al dente is one thing, but sending food with the inside still raw is another thing, entirely. When I was asked why I did not eat my meal I explained in detail. The only response was, "Sorry".

We have been eating at Il Fornaio for several years. The service and food is consistently so good it is had to believe it is a chain. Apart from the Denver location I have eaten at the Sacramento CA and Walnut Creek CA locations and the experience is similar. Il Fornaio has a monthly "Festa Regionale" where for two weeks... More

We enjoyed this restaurant many times but for our last visit, the service and food seem too have slipped a bit. Wine prices have increase as well. As a result, one should consider other options if the Tech Center area is your choice for dinner.
