Outward appearance would make you think that you were in for a good, somewhat upscale dining experience. What you get is Olive Garden with pretense. The restaurant was almost empty when we went, but we still did not get very good seating. We watched employees eating on their breaks in better seating than we had. The hostess, the server, and...

Wonderfully delicious and unrushed luncheon. One entree was seared salmon on a bed of mixed greens lightly dressed, the other combination of three types of seafood on pasta Excellent wine/. Superior service. Wonderful atmosphere for a relaxing meal with a special someone any day or a celebration.

Nice ambiance. Good Service. Large choice of Northern Italian items. The wine list is reasonable priced, but has no local choices even though Roseville is the center of a noted wine growing industry.

My wife is 100% Italian and we have traveled to Italy many times. This food is one of the best around Roseville and well worth the trip. It is also a restaurant for special occasions. We have eaten at the restaurant many times and find the pasta very good. A special room can accommodate parties of six or more, but... More

I'd been here several times in the past for special occasions and went the other night for an anniversary dinner. The restaurant is very elegant and the service is very good, so it's fun if you want to get dressed up and linger over a dinner. I've always found that the cooked food here is nothing special. Probably the most... More

We often eat at this restaurant at Capital Mall, Sacramento location. Their food is outstanding. Unfortunately, we just experienced a "not a good day" server for our dinner at Roseville location yesterday. For example, we had to wait & ask for olive oil for bread. Then, when we asked him to pack our large portion of left over, he said... More

We live nearby and eat here several times a year. From the bread to dessert, it is always good. We especially like the regional specialties which change monthly. The wait staff are friendly and they have a nice happy hour. They are also accommodating to groups - we had several office Christmas parties here. Last night we had the Ligurian... More

We have eaten many times at different Il Fornaio restaurants. We just went to the one in Rocklin again. It was such a great experience I wanted to give them a "thumbs up". The service was slow but that is what tended to add to the evening, we felt that we could have stayed there for hours and not been... More
