I ate here recently for dinner by myself. The whole experience was superb. The menu is very extensive and features dishes not found at many Italian restaurants. I even got a free appetizer because it was my first time dining at the restaurant. All my courses were excellent, and the several people who served me were friendly, professional, and first-rate....

It is a high quality Italian restaurant. Good selection of pastas pizzas, risottos and apetizers. There are in fact 2 restaurants - the more fancy Il Fornaio upstairs and less fancy part of it called Il Fornaio risotteria downstairs. On our short visit to Seattle we tried both. The prices are higher upstairs, the menu is more extensive. For simple... More

Nice Italian restaurant in the center of the city. Chose pasta dishes and we both enjoyed our meals. Unlike some of the other reviewers I thought the device was very good and professional. Only complaint was the wine which was just ok

Il Fornaio has been a favorite of ours for many years. In the heart of downtown Seattle with it dearth of parking; parking here is in a garage below the restaurant and reasonably priced. Twice a year they offer a series of regional menus are a excellent opportunity to try specialties of the featured region either individually or as tasting... More

My guest had a wonderful cannelloni; she cleaned her plate. My veal scaloppine limone was nothing special. Lots of somewhat tough veal but zero flavor, Service was uneven but was recognized with bruschetta . We eat here whenever we're in Seattle and it continues to be a great location and spotty food.

Il Fornaio has one of the better pizzas you'll find in the United States, but we found the service at the restaurant surprisingly reluctant and lackluster. We had no real problems and it's no reason to avoid the restaurant, but I can't give the restaurant full points. For a large group dinner it might be an issue. It wasn't just... More

The restaurant in the center of the mall had sufficient selections. They offer to grill the panini sandwiches. The sandwich was sufficient to split for a light lunch. The chicken pesto panini was flavorful.
