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....

Need more toppings on pizza. Drinks were over priced. The price for pasta was slightly high. Our server was great and bread was good.

Always receive great service at this restaurant. Drink order taken right away along with appetizers. Like they have runners to serve food when ready. It doesn’t have to be your server. Excellent visit as always.

Made a reservation for 2 early that morning; got seated at a table that was right next to the kitchen- a virtual thoroughfare for all wait staff and guests. The table was bumped by legs and butts constantly throughout the meal making us nervous that the wine would be knocked over. The hostess felt it necessary to have frequent sidebar meetings with the wait staff right beside our table that interrupted our conversation. The restaurant layout is awkward; it appears that they've attempted to cram more tables into the space to gain more seating but only accomplished making getting around difficult and private conversations impossible as you're essentially sitting right beside other parties. The food- bread was brought to our table almost immediately which we thought was a nice touch. We asked for oil and vinegar (something that should be standard on the table in an Italian themed restaurant) but found the vinegar to be very tart. We ordered calamari for our appetizer and were shocked to see the size of the pieces. I first thought they brought us onion rings by mistake; I've never seen such large squid rings and they were tough like rubber. This the first time that we actually didn't finish our appetizer. We both ordered a pizza for our mains (one pepperoni and one fig) which were actually pretty good. They were the highlight of the meal (other than the wine). The server was decent, fairly attentive but not overbearing. We used to eat here quite often a few years ago but haven't been for a while and it seems that they've cut some corners in an attempt to save money. We wont' be going back anytime soon.

My sister was visiting from PEI and is vegetarian. She was very pleasantly surprised when handed a complete vegan menu of which she could order anything with no concern but her thorough enjoyment. What an excellent addition to your offerings. She was thrilled with everything she ordered with her only criticism being ( if she had to make one) was that the pasta was inconsistently cooked (some pieces were cooked more than others). We will definitely return!!

This is not the Il Fornello I remember. Food was not great. Spaghetti meatballs were dry and tasteless. Stuffed chicken was also dry and tasteless with about a teaspoon of stuffing. Not great at all. Atmosphere resembles a McDonald’s. Not going back!

We had a reservation for my birthday and they didn’t prepare a table for us we waited 40 minutes after our scheduled time. We were not visited at our table by the manager to see how our meals were and we were not so much as offered a free appetizer or dessert. Disappointed in the service. Although the waiter was very good.
