We were grabbing dinner before theatre. We were served quickly so there was no issue about making the show on time. Always a good meal here.

Theatre time and it was busy. The staff were overworked with the rush but were great. The food was just ok. I had the Caesar which was not very good - it was boring. Luckily there was salt and balsamic on the table to give it some life. My friend had the Kale salad - mediocre. Our friends had salmon and pasta. It is not a food destination. None of us would go for the food. We will go back when we’re going to the theatre - it’s convenient, close and the staff are great at getting you in and quickly.

As I hadn't been back to this location in years, it was the last on my list of multiple attempts to find a table on an evening when the Leafs were playing, their was an event at Roy Thompson, and a new play was opening down the street -- after re-experiencing the totally refreshed venue, flawless service, and really terrific, fresh, and flavourful food, it will be first on my list next time! Well done.

Only negative is that we arrived 15 minutes early for our 12:00 reservation, thinking with kids it would be easier to have extra time. The booking confirmation I dictated the restauraunt opened at 11:30, however the doors were locked until 12:00. We were not the only customers caught out by this and there were several cold children waiting for lunch. Hard for kids to have a good experience when they have to wait in the cold. Otherwise, our server was great as was the food. The restauraunt and bookends need to get on the same page about when the restauraunt opens to ensure other customers dont have this experience.

Opened at 12pm, approximately 30 people came in at once due to a 1:30pm show at Princess of Wales theatre. Service was prompt and food came very quickly, without sacrificing the quality. Will definitely be back!

I was disappointed that Il Fornello has reduced its vegan and gluten-free options, and also that it no longer has a separate menu for these items. While there are gluten free items, including pizza and pasta, and vegan items with nut cheese, there are fewer choices than before. This was disappointing for me,and a surprise as well, as vegan friendly- gluten sensitivity is the principal reason we dine there. We will have to think about whether to return.....
