We discovered Il Fornello on a Saturday in Toronto en route to volunteer work. We arrived right at noon and loved the atmosphere right away. The service was friendly and quick. The food was delicious and we'd dine here again.

We're repeat customers to this restaurant. Visited restaurant this past Friday. Food and atmosphere was nice but server was disinterested. We'd ordered light as we were planning to meet friends at a pub. Service was lackluster and food was alright. I'd ordered the Rigatoni Bologanese....More

I have been to many Il Fornello locations in the past and the experience has been 'hit or miss'. Generally, I have found that some locations are a bit pretentious, others have inattentive staff and some have spotty food quality. However the Il Fornello on...More

We come here regularly because it is very family friendly and they have very good gluten free pizza. They also advertise $10 pizzas - but be sure to ask if that applies when you visit (some days/months are excluded) and to which pizzas it applies...More

This is a restaurant I frequent with family and friends. The restaurant has consistently reliable and friendly service. The food is also delicious! 'Old favourites' on the regular menu or new discoveries on the 'special menu'. Always a delight!

Don’t know what it is about this chain, but it goes up and down, up and down in quality. Right now, it’s down. Looks like the menu has been substantially trimmed down and the often quite interesting and fairly upscale daily seasonal specials have been...More

Once the bastion of Greek cuisine, “Greektown” has evolved to the point where you can now enjoy some of the best Italian fare the city has to offer at IL FORNELLO on the Danforth. Enjoy a glass of wine and a wood-oven baked pizza on our spacious summer patio or bring the family for the popular Weekend Brunch.
