Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: Just about everyone seems to love this sunny trattoria that brought rustic Italian breads to California so many years ago. Plump chickens turn on the rotisserie, and fresh bread is baked in the back twice a day. Enjoy the focaccia and breadsticks, and stick with the Italian basics: salads, pizzas, pastas and, yes, that juicy chicken. Stop by in the morning for a steaming latte and a pastry; and don’t leave without picking up some fresh Italian breads or pastries in the adjoining bakery. Watch for monthly changing specials reflecting various regions of Italy. Other locations.
