THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: Italian for the baker, Il Fornaio makes a very good first impression with its baskets of authentic bread followed by the traditional pouring onto adjacent plates of extra-virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar for dipping. Also impressive is this popular suburban cucina's design, the dark wood-framed wine rack and friendly seven-seat bar near the entrance; to marble accents and hardwood floors; to the exhibition kitchen, which houses a massive stone hearth and oak wood-fired pizza oven; to the outdoor patios. Among starters, we like the beef carpaccio with shaved grana, capers, arugula and lemon-olive oil. Favorite entrée specialties are mixed-shellfish linguine with tomatoes, crushed red pepper, garlic and trebbiano wine; and mesquite-grilled herb- and mustard-marinated double chicken breast with Tuscan salad and roasted potatoes. Trenchermen like the tagliata chianina---mesquite-grilled sliced beef tenderloin with balsamic vinegar and green peppercorn sauce. Among irresistible desserts are crêpes filled with apples and grappa pastry cream, served with vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce. For two weeks each month the restaurant also offers a special menu highlighting the bread, food and wine of one of Italy's 20 regions. Wine tastings feature a selection of Italian varietals.
