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....

Excellent first experience here. Came here for my birthday and the service, food and care for cleanliness and safety was exceptional. Tables were separated by a faux glass partition, staff was all wearing masks and sanitizer at the door. Definitely returning!

We came as a walk-in and we were seated in a section they said was designated for people without reservations. Service was excellent. Our server was professional and friendly. I love the gnocchi. I’ve had it a few times now. It was creamy and the pasta was pillowy and fluffy. The fried shallots added a wonderful texture.

Thanks for taking the extra time to make sure our pizza was customized to a restricted diet. Food was delicious as usual and you somehow managed to create social distancing barriers that made our booth seem cozy and private.

My friend ordered the entree vegan Cesar and was starving after eating It. It’s incredibly small and the size is way smaller then it was the last time we ate there, you shouldn’t have to leave hungry after paying 16$ for a salad with no real protein that’s tiny. The value was terrible and we were very disappointed. Also we both ordered Americano coffees and received pale brown water. I don’t know what it was but it was like watered down drip coffee. Not pleasant. Sorry to be harsh but your restaurant is overpriced and we left unsatisfied.

I regret choosing this restaurant for our Wedding anniversary dinner. Our Calamari appetizer and to go seasonal cheese cake was good but our dinners weren’t good at all. My chicken Parmesan was mushy and had a frozen dinner flavour, I didn’t finish and wouldn’t recommend it to anyone it was disgusting. My wife’s to go carrot cake was stale! It was dry hard and old. During these times going out to dinner is becoming rare so when you review a restaurant and make a decision to invest your time and money contributing to that establishment you expect at least an edible meal. It was a disappointing meal, quality food should be easy for Il Fornello since it isn’t a new restaurant they should be leaders in this industry with better standards.

Unfortunately the table we were seated at was not wiped down prior to be seated. It had coke stains on it. We had to ask for it to be wiped off. Other than that all was well. Tim

Good food and the best waiter we’ve had in a while. Went for our anniversary and got a free desert. Chad was very professional but also friendly and cautious of COVID rules. Would recommend and will go again. Sat by the door which wasn’t the best. But enjoyed our visit.

Very nice and yummy food! We weren’t able to get the patio seats we originally wanted, but we ended up liking our spot inside better. The waitress was nice and attentive. My boyfriend and I enjoyed our time here. :)

I had booked a lunch to meet some new clients during COVID-19 and specified during the online booking that I’m looking for a shady area on their patio. Upon arrival we asked the server if we would be able to add a table so the seatings would be a little more spaced out for covid as we were meeting clients. The server was very accommodating and provided wonderful service during the lunch. Food was great as well! I would recommend this restaurant.
