We ordered a seafood platter to start (it was fantastic) and each ordered some form of pasta. The food was fantastic and the bread and oil is AMAZING!

I had a buffet meal here as part of a large group. We were seated outside the restaurant itself in the atrium of the shopping mall - not great. And the buffet was adequate without being interesting... I suspect the restaurant itself and its food must be nicer from the other TripAdvisor reviews....

I was in and out super fast and everything was really good, especially the butternut ravioli. Hard to imagine how it could be better.

The food here is ok, we came for a business meal after an event. The calamari was a little greasy in my opinion. I ordered the linguini de mare which was ok but again nothing too great. There was about 2-3 shrimp, 2 scallops and few mussels. I would have like more seafood. The service was very good though.

We have been to several Il Fornaio restaurants - Monterey, Marin County, Seattle and others and usually find the opportunity to dine when we know that one is close by on our travels. My wife had angel hair pasta and I had a pasta tossed with salmon. Both very good. We always get affogato for dessert. This time we had one plus a tiramisu. Both yummy. Service is always good. Although the chain is now owned by a company that owns many others as well, they seem to have left this one alone. I knew the original owner and it seems they have not strayed too far.
