An early dinner, a corner table. She chose one of the day's specials --- salmon in lemon and olive oil, with broccolini and Yukon gold potatoes. Fantastic, never had better salmon, sez she. Better than we had in Alaska. I had veal scalopini and while not stunned was well pleased. It came covered with chopped artichoke hearts, not my favorite... More

Food is surprisingly good for a chain, but it's pricey, especially the wines. The pastas are all uniformly good. The bread is good rustic Italian served with olive oil and balsamic vinegar. The wines seem to be overpriced for the quality and the price tends to add up quickly since most items are ala carte. Still, it is a solid... More

Had dinner at "Il Fornaio" and had a very good impression. The focaccia they bring you upfront is very nice. Fried calamari as well as the pizza with pancetta and gorgonzola were very good. I appreciated also that they have Ferrarelle mineral water, rather than the usual San Pellegrino. Complimenti.

This Italian restaurant had good food. We had a large party which they managed well. The pasta dishes and the anti pasta seemed to be the group favorites.

For a chain Italian restaurant, Il Fornaio is well above average. The food was well prepared and presented and portions were generous.

We've been to Il Fornaio several times now, usually before we attended either the 5th Avenue or ACT Theatre for a show. The dining room here is huge, and we've never had a problem getting a table even a day or two before a Friday show date. The food and service at Il Fornaio has been consistently excellent across all... More

The bartender was nice but seemed stressed to the max. He was barking off orders to everyone behind the bar and to the servers. Maybe it was time for him to take a little break...luckily he finally did and the new bartender came on duty. My drink was supposed to have fresh juice and i saw him pour it from... More

Fast food restaurants aren't always the best but Il Fornaio is a pleasant exception. Conveniently located in Pacific Place on the main floor between shopping and lower level parking, it was a perfect stop for us. The menu is fairly extensive, the salads and sandwiches fresh and the service outstanding. They also offer croissants and other breakfast foods. One pays... More
