Went with coworkers at the end of a business trip. Great menu choices and prix fixe selection. The wine options were great! Very convenient to our location.

The place looks very expensive but the prices were reasonable for what you get. The interior has a great vibe about it and our waiter was very pleasant. We ordered different dishes and everything came out great we really enjoyed our dinner here.

We went to Il Fornaio by chance because Nemea was closed--and we are glad. The food was fantastic. Our waiter, Brian, in addition to providing top notch service, recommended the seafood risotto and penne vodka--excellent selections. For dessert we enjoyed the zabaione tremendously. We will...More
