Il Fornaio - Roseville Ratings and Reviews
The food was distinctly better than what I recall from many past visits. That's good! I didn't pay much attention to the prices until I receive my bill. It was $155 for three people including two glasses of wine. I had a nice chicken dish but it was $24.95. Way too expensive in my opinion. Again very good food, but grossly overpriced.
Il Fornaio Roseville is one of our "go to" restaurants. Usually, the food is good to very good and the atmosphere terrific. Not so on 2/15/ 17 when my wife ordered ½ duck which was bland and exceptionally tough. She managed a few bites at the restaurant and I tried carving it from home later and could only scrape out a small amount of meat. At the same meal, I had rack of lamb "medium rare". It arrived beyond rare (closer to raw) and was also tough. We probably should have complained on site, but it took a while for the main course to arrive and we did not want to extend the dining experience that night. I'm hoping that the previous day's business (Valentines) left the kitchen is disarray. We will return but not for a while. We were/are very disappointed but this may have been a one time occurrence.
Real good restaurant and food. We ate early in the evening and were seated facing the sun that was setting. Here's the downside points. It was blinding. We had to ask for lemons in our water 3 times. If you get the big pour on a glass of wine, make sure you check the price first. It is steep.
Il Fornaio is our go to restaurant in Roseville. The food is always great and they have specials each week. The Italian Regional menus are so fun to experience the various foods of Italy. The service the other night was impeccable, our waiter Suzanne was one of the best we have experienced. We will request her upon our return.
Love the menu and service at Il Fornio. My scallopinni was most tender with generous portions. Love their olive bread/ olive oil. We had the Table of Honor to celebrate our 48th Anniversary and they went overboard to make us feel so special. Save room for the tiramasu, the best ever. Many thanks.
Hi, I made the reservation for a 60th Birthday Dinner celebration for my sister. Dinner was ok, menu is weak on the vegetarian side and more so on vegan selections. I also would have thought a small cup cake with candle would have been brought out for some appreciation. Maybe you guy's don't do that but I see it done at other establishments. I did make note of the birthday dinner in my notes in the table reservation.
We've eaten here many times over the years and always enjoyed a "good" meal - sometimes an outstanding meal and dining experience. Food and services varies from time to time but we keep coming back - each time hoping for that WOW factor - and always happy when that occurs!
We had a very bad experience at Il Fornaio - Roseville. Beside the manager, staff we met there are not professional, rude and badly behaved.
We arrived 10 minutes earlier for our reservation for New Year Eve celebration, but the girl at the reception made us wait for 25 minutes and she simply ignored us (even though we reminded her twice for our reservation). Then the waiter did not put the salad dressing on the side, served us the cold main course. We asked for a warm dish. The waiter just microwaved our dish. This is really horrible. In the end, the waiter dropped a folk with food on my husband's jacket. This completely ruined our new year eve. We asked to talk to the manger. The manger apologized and waived our bill. This is our worst experience dining at a restaurant.
Il Fornaio is a favorite restaurant, so we went on New Year's Eve for dinner. We were seated promptly and our server was terrific throughout the meal. Some restaurants don't staff up adequately for holidays but this was not an issue at Il Fornaio. Service was well-paced and accommodating, and despite the fact that they were working from a special menu that night, they accommodated a special request for our son, who has a developmental disability and can be a picky eater, so it made it a very good experience for everyone in our group. We always enjoy dining there.
Due to the day before New Year's Eve, waiting was fine, once we were seated took over 20 minutes before someone realized we hadn't been introduced to our waiter/waitress. The Waiter Matthew came to our table quickly, apologized for any inconvenience, he was very delightful and great server. We appreciated him and the bus boy. Thank you both so much!
We have never been disappointed over the last number of months. The staff is very attentive and very accommodating to tailor our meal to be healthy. We selected both of the chicken dishes in the grill menu and ordered spinach only as our sides, their spinach is delicious and so we're both entrees.
