Ask for the three course tour meal. It's a great deal. Three or four choices for each course of great value. It was only 36$ when we visited.

Food is great wine selection is good service was very cordial and fine though I'm sure our waitress did not speak Italian but neither do I. There is easy parking at two public garages only a block away and you can the stroll around the neaby entertainment district afterwards.

It also wasn't too noisy which was important for as it was a business dinner.

This is a very nice restaurant tucked away in Pasadena Old Town. I always get a fish dish. They have outdoor seating as well. Nice area to stroll around before or after dinner.

This place has superb food, excellent service, and fantastic atmosphere. I strongly suggest the Taste of Basilicata, even though my wife and daughters preferred a la carte. Really, I don't think there's a bad dish at Il Fornaio. Also, a very classy touch in bringing my daughter a Happy Birthday brownie without our asking. We're going back to this place!

This is a favorite restaurant of ours. Today we sat outside to eat our lunch before visiting a museum nearby. There is parking on the street and also in a parking structure.

We lived in Italy for many years and found Il Fornaio to be pretty close to the real thing in terms of food, service and atmosphere. Nice to have white table cloths for lunch -- seems like a dying touch in America. The Rustica appetizer was more than sufficient for our appetite -- a small pizza with vegetable and goat cheese topping. Canolli were a bit small and not as tasty as they might have been. Service was friendly and prompt.
