Reviewed January 11, 2013

good selection of pasta, meats and breads, excellent service - server returned to our table several times asking if things were fine and there was anything else. Refills were quick. Good size portions on all of the items ordered. Prepared exactly as ordered and served hot.

“Molto Bene Italian Cuisine in Oakville”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Just came back from a wonderful New Year's Eve meal at Il Fornello in Oakville.

Upon arrival, we were warmly greeted by the hostess & she escorted us to our table.

The restaurant has a nice decor with brick interior & an open kitchen where you can see the cooks making the meals.

We ordered a nice bottle of Pinot Grigio & a bottle of Pelligrino.

As appetizers we ordered the Mussels & Roma Salata. Both appetizers were excellent.

For the main course we ordered the Vitello Marsala & Chicken Asiago. The veal is very tasty with a nice sauce & rapini.The Chicken has nice flavor with carrots.

We were full after the main course , so we ordered coffee for desert.

Service by Alan & another Italian speaking waiter whose name we didn't know was excellent.

This is a great place for a date night or with the family.

They have several pizzas on the menu that kids will like.

Our only minor complaint is that the price of wine is somewhat high at $49 a bottle. There are cheaper selections but I didn't see any wine under $30 a bottle.

The wine we selected was very good but it was expensive.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Went to Il Fornello's for my birthday and had a wonderful meal. Our server was great and recommended a bottel of wine that we all enjoyed very much, so we had to have a second! The Pollo con Asiago Chicken was delicious, can't wait to go for the next family birthday.

“Very reliable”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We used to live nearby and used to enjoy Il Fornello fairly regularly. After being away for a few years, we stopped by again and we're pleased to find that both the food and service hadn't changed. Our table was right by the open kitchen, but otherwise, it was a great meal. Delicious food and relaxed atmosphere.
