Il Fornaio - Irvine

Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. Il Fornaio means "the Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique Italian dining experience.

"I have been to Il Fornaio many times. It always consistently good, with a good menu. The service, this particular night, was as usual excellent. My only nit was that the veal I ordered was a bit tough. The rest of the preparation was great. I am sure if I had sent it back, they would have fixed it, but I didn't bother. My wife's meal and the appetizers were all great.
I would always recommend this restaurant for either a business lunch or a dinner out"

"It was a 16 year old's birthday and we had the entire inside patio to ourselves for dinner. They had my favorite wine, Chateau Montelena, by the glass! Everyone had a great time and the service people were on top of it and great."

"The staff at Il Fornaio always treat everyone like you are part of their famiy. The food is great, the service is great, and the Manager Marcello is the best! All the waiters, and busboys are very helpful, and attentive, and every month there is a different regionale menu.
We go there a least once a month, if not more often, and have for over 20 years.

"Always a great spot for fantastic Italian cuisine with a fun and relaxing atmosphere. A little bocci with wine after a great meal, with or without the kids make for a great night out. Perfect for getting a break from the crowded and overpriced NB restaurants!"

"Each year Il Fornaio sponsors a different Italian region each month. We have been to 4-6 in the past and wanted to try Tuscany food this time. The food was excellent and supported by good Tuscan wine. Very worthwhile. We will repeat"

"The food is always great and with true italian flavors and style.
On this last visit we started with the most amazing Cioppino seafood soup that had me licking the bowl with my bread!! Very consistent and the service is good. Would recommend for business lunch and everyday dinning."
