We had a family dinner at Il Fornaio this past weekend to celebrate a birthday. We were seated promptly in a private area of the restaurant. The waiter was great, very helpful with the menu and specials. The menu offered several options. The food was average, not great. Did seem a bit overpriced for the quality of the food. The... More

This place is huge and it can get crowded, so we thought it would be really good, turned out to be ok, for example the truffle pasta was really good, but pasta alfredo not so much, we've also tried the risotto which was just good, so my thoughts are some dishes are good while others need a little improvement.

I visited Il Fornaio for a team meal back in July 2016. We were given a semi-private room which ended up being a little cramped. Service was good but I'd rate the food as so-so - it's certainly not bad, but I've eaten far, far better Italian meals in Italy, London and Los Angeles. I can't really see why this... More

I love Italian food. This restaurant has gotten decent reviews on their food, so I was very excited to try it. Unfortunately, that was not in the cards for me. The service was so poor that it took an hour and a half just to get our food. Our server had to return to us two times during that period... More

I had a few not so great experiences here in the past but decided to give it one last try. Well, I got my water and menu quickly but after waiting about 30 minutes I had to ask for someone to come take my order. My server was very apologetic, but after watching all the other diners (and the dining... More

This review reflects a one-time experience. (I hope it doesn't recur.) If it were based on my previous experiences with the Il Fornaio in downtown Seattle's Pacific Place, or their other outlets elsewhere I would have given them four, or maybe even five stars. This time was. for us, a traditional family Christmas outing with my wife and me, our... More

My wife & I have enjoyed a "December in Seattle" dinner for the last four years at the Il Fornaio. Each meal has been spectacular. We love the ambience, the service, the attention to detail and the exquisite Italian cuisine. In addition for those with Celiac, the Il Fornaio offers an extensive gluten-free menu. We thank you.

We were looking for Italian and found this place just driving past. Excellent and attentive service. They make their own ginger beer and it was very good. A must try! We had Calamari which was very crispy and nicely done. The sauce went well with it. We shared a meatball with Angel Hair pasta. Tasty and very authentic Italian. It's... More
