I've been going to various Il Fornello locations for years. The location in Ajax, although stellar when it first opened, has become somewhat average. The $10 pizzas after 4 Monday-Thursday are a good deal, but they come out suspiciously fast (as though the crusts have...More

Dear TorontoFoodieKH, We're sorry to hear that you were disappointed in your recent experience at IL FORNELLO in Ajax. It certainly isn't the policy for our pizzas to be pre-sauced or to sit around. They come out quickly because, with the popularity of our $10...More

I went on a week night, service was slow and the food was nothing special. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Nice atmosphere with modern touches. I always order a pizza to share. At $10 its a good meal or app. Service is good. I've never had bad service. This time I went with my husband for a quick dinner and movie. Everything was lovely.

It has not taken very long for IL FORNELLO to move to the top of the list of the best Italian restaurants in Ajax. It’s not just the casual, classic Italian fare like pizzas baked in the wood-burning pizza oven, pasta favourites, salads, appetizers and more that customers are talking about, they love the décor of Ajax’s latest hot spot.
