Had the opportunity to visit il Fornello on a Sunday at noon. Perfect time. Not too busy at all. Their bruschetta is delicious. I ordered the calamari - found it a bit too greasy but acceptable. The beet salad is out of this world. I did mention to the server "not too much goat cheese" but I still received it... More

Il Fornello's resides somewhere between the casual resturant and a formal high-end restaurant. It seems to be focused on a target market of young, urban professionals, if judged solely on the decor and pricing. Il Fornello's serves decent food options. Their pizza is quite tasty, and their pasta is quite good as well. I've always felt that Fettucine Alfredo makes... More

I was there Fri Dec 9 for lunch. The main menu indicated "$10 PIZZA for lunch Mon-Fri". I ordered two pizza's and when the bill... More

The restaurant provides to areas: The bar area on the left side and the restaurant area on the right side. In both areas you can order the same food. My favorite side was the bar area. The service was excellent and the Pizza was even better. The pizza base is really Italian style - thin but crusty. The toppings are... More

As happens, a restaurant with 'no' ceiling creates noise. The vents, tubes and pipes are not a visual problem but, sounds bounce off them. However, if you order fresh from the stone oven pizza, it's worth the audio effects.

This was our first time to this restaurant. I was happy with the atmosphere and the menu looked good but I can't same the same for the service. Our waitress was not very helpful. For example ... as I looked through the wine menu with her standing there I asked if they had a by the glass menu and her... More

Always enjoy Italian food and Il Fornello has never disappointed us. However this experience was even made more memorable because of our server Carly. She was attentive, took the time to speak to us about what was in the menu. She was very knowledgeable and really engaged us. We never felt rushed and she went above and beyond!! The chacuterie...
