We've been visitors to Il Fornello in every one of their locations. The Ajax operation needs some new management to get the quality of food and service to the level of their other venues. Worst caesar salad. Food does not meet prices. Service was lacklustre.

Average food. Ate there once. Not impressed. Service was slow. Just go the keg for a good meal. But pricey.

Asked waiter for house specialty. He recommended the Chicken Parm. Average, ate it as I hate wasting food. Second time there. Not going back. So much cheese in sause, sauce was almost dry.

Most of what we ordered was excellent, but two things could stand improvement. The Caesar Salad two of us ordered was soggy from limp lettuce and too much dressing. Additionally, I understand that part of the recipe for Caesar... More

Very nice restaurant - service was amazing. They have a fixed price menu that was very reasonable. Wine and beer list is pretty good - enough choices for all tastes. They have gluten free pasta.

I've had several different meals here, ranging from pasta to seafood, and they have all been really good! Their prices are reasonable so you don't feel like you've busted the... More

Great food and good service but far too noisy - can't hear the person across the table from you let alone anyone else!
