THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: This sunny Italian trattoria has newspapers available at the espresso bar, plump chickens turn on the rotisserie, and bread is baked in the back twice daily. Enjoy the focaccia and breadsticks, and order the Italian basics: salads, pizzas, pastas and, yes, that juicy chicken. Stop by in the morning for a steaming latte, and don't leave without picking up a pastry in the adjoining bakery. Watch for monthly-changing specials reflecting various regions of Italy. This branch offers an ocean view from the patio. Other locations.
