Service was slow and inattentive. We requested a gluten free entree, for a diner with celiac disease- the food was NOT gluten free and this person got sick. This despite us calling ahead and being assured that they could accommodate us. We will not be back. So disappointing.

Went to this restaurant just yesterday and the server Shawn was great and very handsome. We got the Bruchetta with goat cheese added and it was fantastic and my friend and I both had the margarita pizzas. Ilfornello is definitely the place in Ajax to get pizzas no questions asked

I ordered chicken...

I ordered chicken pasta. Both the chicken and pasta were hatd as a rock, and there was absolutely no flavour. Yuck! And I don't like eating in a gymnasium. Horrible, loud and awkward.

Very nice restaurant

We tried a mid week evening meal at this restaurant. When making the reservation we were told that we probably would not need to and there would be plenty of room as a "walk in". However I am glad we did as it was very busy. Not long after we were seated, it seemed to be full. Our server was very good and we were taken care of very well. The menu seems compact (probably half is pizzas) but still nicely varied with something for everyone. The drinks menu selection was also better than average. A large amount of the food seems to be freshly homemade and the gnocchi was probably the best we have had. The only slight negative was the homemade ice cream. This might just be personal preference, but we thought it could have been better. Overall, it was a very enjoyable meal and we will definitely return for more....

The service took a bit long but the food was wonderful. I would strongly suggest making reservations on a Friday.

We had a really late reservation after we got engaged and they kept the kitchen open for us. We had a great dinner in the quiet empty restaurant. It was perfect. Thank you!

We were told the appetizer contained 4 items but received 3. Had made request for a “ special “ table for our 37th anniversary but they were not aware of our request at the time of arrival. Overall a great experience but some details could have made it 5 star.

A bit too noisy for my liking and they ran out of lasagna which was our friend’s first choice. Otherwise, our server was excellent and the food we had very good with generous portions.

Trying to find great restaurants in suburbia can often be difficult so I'm glad there's an IL FORNELLO! It is probably the closest thing to a downtown restaurant in terms of innovative menu (they have vegan and gluten free options) and even restaurant design. The food is always delicious (fig pizza, butternut squash ravioli and vegan Caesar are my go-tos) and the staff are always friendly.

I hosted a bridal shower for 21 guests. We were assigned Kim as our server, I can't begin to tell you how lucky we were to have her. Always being within eye shot in case I or a guest needed something, Food orders were taken with complete ease and no one had to wait a crazy amount of time for their order to arrive. Each and every guest raved about their food order, Never felt rushed. If I ever have to host another event, Il Fornello Ajax will definitely be my choice. My sincere thanks and gratitude to Kim and all the staff.

Several other guests were seated after us and received their meals before us. We had to ask for cutlery. When the food finally came 45 min after ordering, most of the meals were Luke warm at best. Chicken was dry and one of the orders was wrong. Just to make things right our meal bill was cut in half and we were offered complimantary desserts. I will not be back.

We had a super dinner at Il Fornello....it was a family birthday and our server was amazing. She was helpful and even brought a treat for the birthday girl. The food was very good and so was the wine! This is our first family dinner at Il Fornello - though I have been there a few times - the service was what was most exceptional about the evening.
