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, pasta 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. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry, and game; house-made pasta; pizzas from an oak wood-burning oven; fresh salads and house-made soups; a wide variety of desserts; and freshly baked bread made daily from scratch.
