The food is amazing and the service truly wonderful. Very enjoyable experience and you certainly get your money's worth.

A wonderful restaurant. Great food, nice ambience and excellent service -- both by the hostess as well as by our waiter, Ivan. The calamari and the chicken parmigiana were both excellent. Prices quite reasonable. Excellent value for money.

Didn't get to a traditional timed lunch? Too early for dinner? Your wish for a lighter meal can be aptly satisfied with Il Fornello's Piccolo Pranzo menu. An Italian moniker for a small lunch and only served daily from 2 - 4 pm. Pick a...More
