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.

Service was so slow. Waitress didn’t take our order for 30 minutes and rarely checked on us. Was friendly and pleasant but may have been too busy.

Generally everything was very nice. Service was very good. Everyone enjoyed their meals. I had the lamb shank. It was good but tasted a bit off. I realize this can happen with lamb even when it's perfectly good so not really worth complaining about. All other meals were excellent, mine was also good minus the above.

Everything was good, but it was a loud, as the restaurant was busy and we were seated right under the speaker. I asked the server if she could turn the music down, but nothing was done about it.

Obsessed with IF’s new vegan menu. I’ve been back for dinner a few times over the past two weeks since I first tried it and will continue to spread the word, as well as frequent with friends. Our server was amazing. And she even told us about the vegan brunch - brought us the menu to have a look. Well definitely check it out soon. Thanks for a great evening!

We had a wonderful time. We came because of the new vegan menu. Everything was so delicious that we came back the next day to order more things off the menu. I'm so thankful for your vegan menu and I hope it is continued to be received positively!

Love this place! The food is always great. Perfect to get my Italian food fix. I'm not a vegan but even the vegan dishes are tasty. But my favourite part is the service and how they make you feel so welcome and take care of you.

The service on this particular visit was substandard to what I am used to at Il Fornello. We had to track down the server for more water, bread and beverages on three occasions. When we told the server that the mussels were not cooked properly, we were told that we ate them anyway. I explained that my point was, they tasted good but were over cooked and was merely pointing this out for the Chef for the next customer that ordered them.

We really enjoyed the food and were grateful for such an incredible selection of gluten-free and vegan food. The service was good when we first got there; however, as it got busier it seems our table was ignored for a while. Overall, we enjoyed the meal.
