We arrived at Il Fornaio in Carmel by the Sea and were promptly greeted by 2 very friendly members of the staff. We were escorted to our table and immediately were served a saucer of Olive Oil on one half and Balsamic Vinegar beside it. A basket of warm soft bread was just begging to be dipped into the mixture... More

Quality of food not up to Italian standards. They seem to cut corners wherever the can. Not bashful about prices.

We have been eaten at Il Fornaio numerous times. We find the food to always be very good and the service is always excellent. The atmosphere is upscale compared to a typical Italian restaurant but it does not feel stuffy. In addition to their regular menu they regularly feature a smaller menu representing a particular region of Italy. The dishes... More

We went with friends for the Trentino menu and decided to also have the wine flight. Our waiter was lovely, the interior was very nice for dining and there wasn't a hint of "chain" in the corridor where we sat. The menu had 3 courses - yes Imwe could of sworn the dessert was mentioned and frankly this was very... More

Il Fornaio a classic concept and here it's still enforced and authentic. Great fresh bread, the appetizers and main courses are fresh, hot and well presented. GF menus to choose from and great wine selection. A little on the noisy side but that is California after all. Open space and great waiters, Italy as you like to remember it

We enjoyed the outside environment, service and their salads. However... I had never tried a $17.50 burger and visioned very high results. Not to be. Burger looked great upon delivery with its side of fries but upon inspection after first bite the beef patty was made of finely ground beef packed together in a uniform shape. Not charbroiled, just bland... More

I know Il Fornaio has been around for quite some time, but for some unknown reason, I had never eaten there until a couple of months ago when my wife and I had lunch. We were so impressed, that we would make it a point of returning for dinner when we were in the area again. Which is what we... More

We went to Il Fornaio last night for their Sicilia seasonal menu, it was great. We especially enjoy their regional menus which they also offer as a "passport" meal at a very good price. The food and service were what we've come to expect, excellent. It is at a great price for a 3 course meal, and you get to... More

Il Fornaio at the Roseville Galleria is a great place to go for lunch or dinner, especially after shopping or just meeting family or friends for a meal. The Italian cuisine is delicious, the service friendly and atmosphere is pleasant. It's also a great place to get together for drinks. Try it, you'll like it!
