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 is one of our go-to restaurants for a casual meal because of its extensive, tasty vegan menu. We bring friends and family to introduce them to vegan pizza and other delicious dishes.

Terrific as always, Myself and my friend both have difficult food issues- Crohn’s and allergies which involve lactose intolerance, gluten free and low fibre. The only thing that would make it better if you did a sourdough spelt pizza for people who cannot tolerate wheat.

Only comment is related to size of restaurant and placement of tables put us right where dirty dishes were stored for bussing. Not ideal but service and food was excellent.

My friend was visiting Toronto for her birthday weekend. I booked a reservation for 9:15 where we would have her birthday dinner. My friends and I were 10 minutes late and the kitchen was closed, however the waitress was super accommodating and seated us. Cannot remember her name, but she was bubbly, friendly and funny. She was also closing on August 18. Please give her a raise! My friend truly enjoyed her birthday and loved the restaurant. Definitely recommending this place to my family and friends!

I was disappointed in the powdered Parmesan on my salad. I expected fresh Parmesan. I also didn’t find the veggie sausage to be as tasty as I was hoping it would be and it didn’t merge with the pizza very well because it wasn’t crumbled it was sliced. However other than that the food was very good and the service was very good and I will come back again.

Very enjoyable evening out. The service was very efficient and friendly in a professional way. The food was excellent. The ladies at the front desk were great in arranging an alternative table due to a mix up on our reservation request. Overall very pleasant as usual. It's easy to see why this place is so popular.

Our most recent visit to Il Fornello on the Danforth was for the Vegan Summerlicious menu and it did not disappoint! The food was great - as usual. We've eaten off of the regular menu as well, but were really impressed by how robust (and delicious) the plant-based Italian menu is. Il Fornello is leading the pack with the quality and diversity of plant-based options available. Thanks for a great night!
