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....

As a vegan I was thrilled to see such a wonderful array of choices for me. Il Fornello is the very best non vegan restaurant for vegans to visit. Gone are the days when all I have for choice is salad or fries. Thank you thank you thank you! We will be back over and over and will spread the word.

We heard really positive things about the restaurant which was why we decided to have dinner here, but honestly apart from the food our experience was horrible! When we first got there, we were seated with nothing, not even a menu. Finally our waitress came and brought back menus, we ordered our app & drinks, but needed more time entree which we ordered shortly after. She took our order and in the time she left we noticed the newly seated tables around us were given a bread basket and we never were. Our app comes and no plate, utensils or bread was provided us up until this point. Mind you, I’m almost 9 months pregnant and starving so we started picking at the app, we were halfway through our app before anyone came in to check on us and we finally were able to get cutlery and ask about bread. When my boyfriend ordered a 2nd corona come to find out from the manager they were out and had to get more which was fine, what was not fine was when the manager came back 20 minutes later to ask if he’d gotten his drink yet and he hadn’t and the waitress was sent to get it right away. So needless to say the service was horrible. The atmosphere was also terrible there was a finally with 4 small children, and the children were running around the patio touching and licking people and their items! During these times this is especially concerning! No one did nothing to stop this, or speak to the parents the waitress serving them kept saying ‘it’s fine’ but it’s not! People are trying to enjoy their meals peacefully without having to babysit someone else’s child. Overall our experience was a massive let down.

A well shaded table was set up for us on the patio. The service was very welcoming and attentive. The flood was excellent. Perfect portions. This was my first and I'm looking forward to returning...it would be a nice date spot.

Food was AMAZING as always! Service was friendly, however considering COVID, the servers did NOT clean well nor properly. The tables and chairs were barely wiped between customers... Also, it was over crowded and we were not seated 2 meters apart. There was no social distancing. I love this place but I will not be back for a long time due to COVID safety issues!
