Food and staff are superb. I had spaghetti with meatballs, I can describe how good it was, the staff is very professional five star. I could eat there every single day

Fantastic Italian breads! Great sandwiches, and, build your own salads. The best choice if you are in the shopping district.

Used to go to the Bev Hills location and am so happy to have one here in Seattle (small chain). They have specials by region of Italy, and we went to the January one on Fruilia (sp?)…it was great. We chose from the "select 3" menu. The duck ravioli appetizer was a BEST EVER event with a delicate asparagus sauce.... More

Came with family right after the holidays. Maybe it was because I had just returned from Italy, or maybe it was an off night, but none of us enjoyed our meal. Service that night was very poor. It's a good location though and the menu seems ok. There is a bistro on the ground floor which is probably the better... More

Our waiter was nice, the prices were decent and I loved the style of the restaurant itself. Very cozy yet open, and very clean. I can't have gluten and that was not a problem. You can see the chef cooking in the middle of the restaurant so that is always a neat attraction to me.

Although the restaurant is somewhat on the pricey side, the happy hour is very affordable and contains a number of excellent appetizer items for a very reasonable price, including some killer wood-fired pizza.

In the midst of the day after Christmas shopping, lunch with my daughters-in-law at this most pleasant restaurant in Pacific Place was certainly the highlight of our day. Step into calm surroundings, white tablecloths and gracious service and forget the chaos. A selection of breads brought to our table along with warm oil and balsamic vinegar started our meal. Our...

One of Il Fornaio's best aspects is its close proximity to Nordstrom's and other nearby shopping. Another is its pleasing, airy ambience that lends an elegant feel. Our lunch service was excellent and opting for a table near the windows allows one to enjoy the external ambient light. My wife had the Fradiavola pizza (amply feeds two), and I chose... More

The food was above average. The service was great. There were a variety of selections from pasta to meat dishes. The food was good but we all thought it was a little pricey for Italian food.

The service was pretty hit or miss--we were seated right away and the server was funny and very friendly. But that's about as good as it got. The pricing was pretty high (I know you're in DT Seattle, but it was $5 for a HALF GLASS of wine..) The bread they served was good but I wasn't very impressed by... More
