Il Fornaio is a good place to go for breakfast. It's lunch and dinner menu tends to be fairly average in quality. Although it isn't the best place around, I've always enjoyed the atmosphere of this particular location.

I've been to this restaurant many times in the last few years, and have always received mediocre to poor food. Various chicken dishes, and ravioli have tasted rather poor to me.

Fancy chain restaurant - bad combination. There are a lot of other places you can go to for the same price and better food. I had the swordfish and it might as well have come between two buns because it tasted like a fish patty. The calamari is ok ... more

I have been here several times and have yet to have a bad meal. The lobster ravioli's are not shouting with flavor but they're tasty, the fettucini with italian sausage and onion is a favorite of mine, my boyfriend liked the pounded, Sicilian style ... more
