The restaurant had a pungent odor that made it quite unpleasant to dine. The food order was a buffalina pizza to share and two beet salads. My guest and I could not finish our salads due to the musky odor. The pizza was good. The salads however were basic. Something I could whip up at home or purchase at a fast food restaurant. Best,

We really enjoyed our meal . I had chicken Parm with gnocchi and it was to die for. The chicken was so fresh and tender. The gnocchi was cooked perfectly with you incredible sauce. My wife had pizza and it is always perfect. We also devoured a few apps that were also amazing. The service from both our waitress and water assistant was prompt and friendly. Thank you for an amazing experience. We will be back again soon.

Unfortunately we didn't get our server's name, but he was excellent. He had a great sense of humour, looked after us in a timely manner, and our food was delicious, as always.

We sat by the window and could see the street and I love to people watch so it was a great spot. Your restaurant is very clean, tables are small but in the city space is at a commodity. I had the stuffed chicken and it was delicious, my husband had the chicken parmesan (he doesn't get excited about food like I do) said it was good. Dave was our waiter and he is fine tuned into what the customer wants. He was great.

The Chicken Parmigiana was very good and Chicken Asiago was a bit tasteless and portion was no more than ok. Service was excellent. Will come again for the pasta.

My salad wasn’t fresh, I had to pick the soggy, black leaves out. I doubt the vinaigrette was made from scratch. It tasted as if the salad had been refrigerated with the dressing on. The waiter, Matthew, was very nice but didn’t show up very often, we had to look for him. There wasn’t much staff around. The atmosphere was nice for dinner with friends

I choose Il Fornello because this was a meal before a Mirvish performance so i did not have a lot of time and I had 2 young picky eaters with me and I figure there was no point in taking them to a fancy restaurant. Il Fornello offers your standard Italian fare and amazing Pizza. The kids loved their pasta pomodoro and I loved my pizza funghi. The service was professional, and quick and met my expectations.

Cannelloni could use a little more sauce. Everything was tasty. Server did a great job assisting 2 of our family members who were late due to traffic. We finished dessert while she brought them their main course. All of us got to the theatre on time. Thank you.
