You can't go wrong with Il Fornaio's restaurant. Event though it is a large chain, it does not feel like one. I enjoy the ambience and intimate feeling within a large restaurant. We eat here on a regular basis and we have never had less than perfect service. Professional, friendly, intuitive. Spot on.

Not your mom and pop eatery. As a chain type of restaurant, this is one of the best. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly and the wait staff have been well trained. Happy hour is a good alternative to dinner if you're looking for something lighter.

The crowds in the restaurant tell the story. The meals are expensive so don't plan on having a meal for two for less than $70, without drinks!

Il Fornaio is often overlooked because of its location in the Roseville Galleria, a massive mall with many chain restaurants. In fact, I overlooked it for years because I figured it was yet another quantity-over-quality mall restaurant. It is not. Many so-called Italian restaurants in the U.S. serve American-Italian food that only marginally resembles anything you would get in Italy.... More

The welcoming variety of the menu provides something special for all tastes. Appetizers shared family style with complimentary steamy hot and crusty olive bread and traditional flavorful italian bread comes with great olive oil and balsamic vinegar help the diner resist over-ordering. Grilled or roasted chicken, fish and meats are expertly prepared with pasta dishes available to satisfy vegetarians and... More

I always enjoy dining at this restaurant a few times a year. The menu and wine list is updated frequently, and a special regional Italian food and wine menu is also available. I ordered from the regional menu on my last two visits. I organised a dinner for twenty to celebrate a friend's birthday at this restaurant recently, and we... More

Good food, no doubt. The menu is surely appreciated by non-Italians for the Italian sound of the words. Honestly I never heard about 80% of the dishes in the menu. Well, I learnt some new Italian dishes. Nothing to dislike, however.

Where I live, no one has happy hour, so I was pleasantly surprised when I went to Il Fornaio for a quick trip to the mall and it was Happy Hour. We enjoyed 2 cocktails and 2 appetizers for under $30. It was relaxing and fun and the ambiance was lovely.
