"Il Fornaio is one of my favorite lunch stops. The pasta is fresh and homemade, and the flavors are robust. Most importantly, the food is consistent; every time I get a dish, I know I will enjoy."

"Lunch during Restaurant Week. Beautiful inside, have outdoor dining area (currently with heaters during the winter months)-reminds me of a green house (very cute/pretty).
Our server was super friendly! Food came in a timely manner-we were in/out 1 hour tops 75 mins.
Clean, open kitchen upon entrance after you pass the takeout area (nice that they offer that especially if you work/live around there).
Would love to come back again in summer, at night!"

"My wife and I and two of our close friends dined at the San Francisco location this past Saturday night. This location only seems to get better over time. Service and the food were exceptional. The new Chef came out to all of the tables and introduced himself. He's Italian, from Lombardia. Very excited to have him at this location and we look forward to many more meals with he's menus."

"Good restaurant choices around Levi Plaza are few, but I met a colleague here and had a delicious meal! Our server was courteous, knowledgeable and fast. The food (had one of several specials) was delicious. While it was somewhat crowded, the noise level wasn't so high that you couldn't carry on a business conversation.
I'll be back!"

"I love doing brunch at Il Fornaio - you can always get a table on the weekend and their food is amazing. They have a nice garden patio when it's warm enough and heaters for when it's not- Definitely one of SF's best kept Brunch secrets. The wait staff is attentive and friendly and will not let your coffee get cold..."
