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.

Was very impressed with everything. We were a party of 4 and two of us ordered the appetizer meat balls which did not continue hot, they immediately took it away and brought us brand new orders they were very hot. And apologized. The meatball were delicious, pizza and pasta also. Heaters were on, table far apart. My daughter was there last weekend and recommended the Resturant and she was right. We will be back for sure.

Not a fan of patio dining, but the staff made it seem less of a pain. And the food, as always at Il Fornello, was well worth it!

Chose this lovely place to celebrate my bday w me dad. It was absolutely perfect! The gluten free pizzas were scrumptious, to say the least! We loved it too much, we've even ordered a third pizza (considering my dad normally doesn't like pizza, that's saying something). The interior looks cozy and the music was cool and not too loud. We had a marvellous evening! P. S. I only wish they had some kind of birthday specials, but will come again anyway

It took an hour to get the appetizer. Then the pasta was under cooked and tasteless. I had Fettuccine Salmone and my partner had Alfredo with Shrimp. Extremely disappointing. Won’t go back.

Il Fornello Danforth is our go to restaurant for special celebrations! We were so happy to be able to spend our 6th anniversary there. The food was delicious as always and we were happy to be able to be seated in a booth. Thanks for being a part of our special days!
