Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

: Everyone likes this sunny Italian trattoria, which brought rustic Italian breads to California years ago. Newspapers are available at the espresso bar, plump chickens turn on the rotisserie and that famous fresh bread is baked in the back twice daily. Enjoy the focaccia and breadsticks and stick with the Italian basics: salads, pizzas, pastas and that juicy chicken. Stop by in the morning for a steaming latte and breakfast. Watch for monthly changing specials reflecting various regions of Italy. Service can be the weak link, unfortunately. Other locations.
