Been here a few times and the experience has been great. Pizza is the thing to have. Not cheap, but very good. Service has always been excellent

Went Friday night with my family and was served by a server who was training a new employee. While our server was good the new employee was terrible. Dropping dirty cutlery all over and seemed to have an attitude. The food was good and we did try a lot of different items on the menu. The terrible part was at... More

My girlfriend and I went here for dinner on Sunday evening. It was nice and quiet as the restaurant wasn't very busy. We ordered the bruschetta and calamari for appetizers, which the portions were a bit small. 4 slices of baguette toast with some tomatoes and onions for almost $10 was a bit much. We both ordered pasta. My friend... More

Excellent food close to home, even better for the snow days by using uber eats! Some of the best pizza we have ever had in Canada by far.

Six of us dropped in for dinner. All enjoyed our food. Had the Reserva wine from Sardinia and that was very enjoyable. The food was hot and rich on a cold winter night!

My wife and I always dine at Il Fornello in Toronto when attending events at Roy Thomson Hall. The quality of the food has always been dependable and at a reasonable price. We finally got around to trying the Oakville restaurant which is much closer to our home. It was just as good as its big city cousin. We'll be... More

Average food, and slow service didn't help make a favourable impression. I think Il Fornello could do a lot to foster its Italian branding.

Stopped in for dinner while in town for business. I had tried their downtown Toronto location, so thought I would swing in here. Ordered the olives appetizer - excellent olives, very tasty. Ordered up a pepperoni pizza with mushrooms. Reminded me of the really good thin crust pizzas I used to get as a kid. I would definitely recommend this... More

Passed this place a billion times but never visited. Went here on Sunday of the past Thanksgiving weekend for a Family lunch. It was dead. Pricing was higher than that of any competitive 'average' Italian restaurant. Food was 'average'. Not bad, but not spectacular. Service was not very good. Our server was just going through the motions and not very... More
