Il Fornaio Restaurant Review: Giant glass-wall windows afford views of San Diego and the bay while you nibble on calamari and bruschetta and sip Prosecco. The thin-crust pizzas are made with mozzarella directly from Italy. Chef Giorgio Lo Verde's specialties include pastas made in-house, meat lasagna, and linguine with seafood. Rotisserie chicken and grilled meats round out the menu. Try the chocolate mousse or tiramisu for dessert. A popular brunch dish is the rock shrimp and avocado omelet --- enjoy it with a mimosa while sitting on the bayside patio, which is a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon.
