Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: With its classic décor, attentive service and quality Italian fare, Il Fornaio has remained a go-to place for upscale business lunches as well as celebratory dinners. Although part of a chain, the downtown Sacramento location is popular with locals for its food as well as its ambience, which features alabaster walls, floor-to-ceiling windows and granite-topped outdoor tables. The food is equally refined, from the starters --- such as the black rice cakes and wild boar meatballs --- to the mains, like the braised beef short ribs and herb-roasted chicken. In between, try one of the many house-made pastas, including chicken cannelloni, saffron mushroom pappardelle or organic spinach ravioli with sausage. For dessert, indulge in the apple crêpes with grappa crème or fennel custard with chocolate mousse.
