6 of us gathered for brunch ... East Coasters from PEI and NS, visiting the big city folk from Greenwood and College Road ... loved the walk on the Danforth and especially the great people and the great food/prices at Il Fornello ... of course, it's a favorite ... and we'll be back.

Il Fornello Danforth is always an agreeable place to go. The food is reliable - remarkably so for such an extensive menu - and the service both friendly and professional. Your elderly customers will be back.

We had a great lunch there recently. The place was packed, so it took a while for the food to arrive, but everyone loved their pizzas. Great that they have a plant-based menu for vegans or others wanting to try plant-based foods. The vegan pizza was amazing, and I don't think anyone would know the cheese was plant-based.

Dinner was good. We had expressed to the server that we needed to be out by a certain time and had asked for the bill and coffee to come early. The bill came but the coffee did not.

Felt rushed. The bill came before we even finished eating. Was asked if I wanted my dinner to be packed up when my plate was still full. Didn’t even get the name of our server.

We had a great time. Our server Chelsea was fabulous. Attentive. Friendly and efficient. I found the food quality not as good as previous visits. I had the avocado salad and mini pizza. Pizza was a bit soggy and some lettuce was brown around the edges.

The service started out well but went downhill. Our server sat down with what seem like her friends and was having her meal. We had to keep trying to get her attention and calling her over. Would never go back! So many better restaurants that have better vegan food.
