Great food and service for the price

Food was superb! The server was so nice and actually offered free deserts for both of us. Very well prepared and presented. Even the coffee in the end was good. :)

Bad Food and Poor Service

Pizza had very little cheese, tasted like cardboard. Chicken was thick and dry. Service was poor and when I spoke to the owner he was rude and condesending. Bad experience overall.

We ate on the patio under a tent ; the ambience was fine, but the street noise and construction across the street were very noisy. However, I do not blame the restaurant for that.

Our server new exactly what we needed when we needed it. Also, I have never found a restaurant that has made a better pizza. The pizza fichi is a perfect pizza. With its savoury and sweet favour, as well as the creaminess of the cheese and explosion of fig once you bite into one. Perfect !

The food was great, we love going to this restaurant especially because they have a vegan menu that is good for me, and gluten-free options that I also need. However, when I asked for extra gluten free Parmesan the server said I would need to pay extra, even though we all go there all the time and I never have before. I doubt that gluten-free Parmesan is worth more money than good quality dairy Parmesan, and if you’re going to cater to vegans then you should do so properly. I did not pay extra however I was told that the manager had told her to let me know the next time I would have to. In that case there won’t be a next time.

Il Fornello is our neighborhood restaurant. We eat here frequently and have never been disappointed, with the food or service. We are always treated like family, especially by our favorite server, Steven. We would highly recommend eating here .

Pastas are good for people who do not know the difference. I have had better cheaper pasta dishes. The calamari are the average frozen rings. My fettuccini gamberi needed some garlic and/or olive oil and more rappini. There was a lot of water at base of my dish. My son’s orecchiette were just ok. Pizza was very good. Meatballs are not an authentic italian recipe but the tomato sauce is. We still love Fornellos but the prices are Toronto prices which require better quality. $160 for 3 people with no alcohol, 3 very watered down ice teas, 2 appetizers, 2 pastas, margherita pizza, 1 dessert, 2 coffees is quite pricey. Just being honest.

Amazing service, the most tasty caesar I have ever tried. The fettuccini alfredo is to die for. The cheese cake is a real cheese cake. The quiet relaxing music, enough room to feel uninterrupted. No delays and great deal of attention from staff. Perfect restaurant to catch up with your family or to have a date.

Food was pretty good, however we did find a hair in our salad. While they remade the meal, I would have expected them to remove that item from the bill and was disappointed when they didn’t. Overall still a good dinner and experience, but service could have been better

It was a busy night and maybe you were short staffed but the service was not the best. We sat at table, after giving our order, for about 35 minutes with no food, no bread it was a long wait.

We were with two grandchildren so we reserved for 5:45, before the rush. Shannon looked after us very well. We all enjoyed our meals. We have been to this Il Fornello many times and have never been disappointed.
