Good food, good service. Table available right away (had a reservation for weeks). Appreciated willingness to accept several forms of payment. Surprised at being charged for bread now, but not that big a deal this time.
The hist seemed annoyed with our presence even though the restaurant was empty. We walked out and went somewhere else.
One of my favorite "go to" restaurants to take family and friends. Service is impeccable and food is always delicious. The Lasagna is my favorite and do not pass on the Tiramisu.
Excellent food, from the appetizers to the main course to get dessert! Service good but not great. Ambience great. Have been there previously and will gladly go again.
Food was great. Service even better. As soon as you walk in, a smiling face greets you and another friendly face seats you. Very good experience, will return.
Incredibly bad service: 15 minutes in, a single appetizer came out before even the drinks or the bread service. Our waitress vanished. I had to approach the manager just to get our entree orders taken. The food itself was mediocre. All around a very bad dining experience. Go next door to Mi Piace.
Food was great but your 2% Covid 19 surcharge REALLY left a nasty taste in my mouth!!
Everything is great as usual I’ve been going or 30 years however the vegetables were overcooked for the first time in decades the green beans in the carrots were mushy
The evening was wonderful! The food was excellent and so was the service.
Really enjoyed Italy day there. Definitely hope they do it again in the future!
love the setting...Italian day and music...only concern dishes need to be cleaner!
Everything was excellent. The waiter was very attentive and have a very good personality. Enjoyed the outside dining area. Will definitely come back
Great place to celebrate a birthday. Good food and great service. Our server knew when to come to our table, never overbearing. We definitely plan on returning.
Great pizza and excellent service!
Order the salmon! It’s amazing.
We shared a gnocchi dish, linguini dish, pizza and house white wine. They were all delicious and the service was great. Highly recommend!
Always love Il Fornaio. My only complaint is the limited brunch menu due to COVID. It is practically June already and most high quality restaurants have their acts together on this front and coming back to business as usual. This location was no less busy than pre-pandemic brunch periods so how about a return to normal, Il Fornaio?
Felt like a fast food restaurant where main objective of wait staff was to get you in and out fast. We ordered an appetizer that we hoped to enjoy over drinks- but our entrees arrived just minutes after the first course. Both were delivered by someone else besides the waitress who took our order- lack of coordination in delivering food so that we could not enjoy a leisurely meal. To top it off, yet another wait staff began clearing our table before I was 1/2 way finished with dinner. I had to ask them to stop- again, seemed as if objective was to turn over tables quickly. Would have liked to stay and enjoyed a 2nd glass of wine- instead was delivered the check-left with indigestion.
Our waitress was faboulous! Wish she did not have to wear a mask anymore!
Food was very good, and atomosphere was good, but the service should have been better.
The food was amazing. But the service was lacking.
ITS really good, an amazing Time for a really nice dinner.
Food was delicious but a little cold. Had to send back the bread to be warmed, and the black truffle pasta came out lukewarm. Flavor was terrific though. Probably better to not go towards the end of the day.
Very good food
The outside area is lovely and the wait staff on top of their game. I came with an out of town guest, and he really enjoyed it.
Great services. Enjoyed finally out to dine at the outdoor setting. However, menu is a bit dated. Look forward to the regional food event to try new dishes!
Very pleasant surroundings, menu has lots of Italian items choose from. Grigliato de Pesce Misto $32.95 pleasant surprise, a plethora of seafood, would order this again. Lasagna Ferrarese $22.95 awful looking baked in it's own croc, disappointing, almost all pasta with too much béchamel and hardly any meat, we should have sent it back, GF hardly ate any of it.
Fresh, fantastic food. Never disappoints. The calamari is our favorite appetizer. The bar drinks are great. Lovely time, every time x 15+ years.
We went here for my mother’s birthday and had an amazing time. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for good Italian
The server hierarchy is real. We had a server with short hair whose attitude and demeanor implied she couldn't really be bothered with us, and the busboys seemed a little afraid to do anything for us in case it freaked her out. But the food was good and we had a great time regardless. I wouldn't hesitate to return, but I will ask to be seated in a section not being worked by her.
This was one of my favorite restaurants in Pasadena. The level of service has gone down starting with the host who was moderately rude. Indoor dining was louder than before. The clientele were more casual than before. Could have been due to the. Baseball Game playing at the bar. If I wanted to go to a sports bar I would not have chosen. This restaurant has dropo from the level of fine dining. The food runner and the bus boys were quick to attend, but the server only checked on us once, brought us water in plastic cups and other people had glass. Not sure what that was about LOL. The lasagna’s quality is not as good as it used to be. The spare ribs were mostly great and fat. This experience was not worth the over $100 bill.
Excellent food. Friendly service. Covid safe. Wonderful night!!
Service was not up to the standard. I asked for specific way of preparation. The fish I got was not prepared that way. Confusion and long wait to get my aperitif.
Wonderful food with friends and excellent service......would definitely recommend this restaurant and we will be back.
We used to really enjoy Il Fornaio in Pasadena, but the food is as mediocre as our last visit several years ago. They really need to overhaul their menu and get a bit more creative. However, we still enjoyed their outside patio and the ambiance is pleasant.
Food and service great, despite being understaffed . Prices up a bit, but understand that, like most restaurants, they've taken a financial hit.
Grace, the hostest, was absolutely adorable. The service was the best I’ve had in years (amd we’re talking pre-Covid. The burrata was amazing and my date really appreciated the ambience. Can’t wait to return!
I’ve been away for a while and this was the place a close friend and I chose to meet up. As always it did not disappoint. Wonderful evening.
We had an amazing Mother’s Day dinner!
