“Disappointing”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

Cold food. Not quite what it's cracked up to be. Real Italian is better.

“Birthday Celebration”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

The food and the service were both outstanding. I thought it would be more expensive than it was. I will definately go again.

“Food is just not very good”
Reviewed June 11, 2012

My wife and I have been to Il Fornaio three times now. The first time the food was O.K. The second time the fish was smelly and greasy. Last time the food was decent but certainly not great. The spinach salad needed more dressing. I felt a little like I was eating a pile of raw spinach. Honestly, I don't understand all the grest reviews this restaurant gets. The atmosphere is very nice though. It seems like a nice place to unwind with a pizza and a beer. But the food is overpriced and not that good. The staff is very professional and friendly. I'll give then that too. Contrary to my overall review I like the atmosphere and do want to go back and try their pizza.

“Best Italian in roseville .”
Reviewed June 11, 2012 via mobile

Even though this is a chain , the restaurant is very good and they know what they are doing . I've been going here four years and haven't had a bad meal . also the kitchen is open so you can see what they are doing which is nice . I would definitely reccomend it !
