i have heard a lot about this place and finally went there last week. I have to say that entry from the parking lot is not promising as you keep on seeing that main entry arrow until you reach the door. If you parked in covered parking then surely the entry is more what straight forward. Now lets come to... More

When there for a special day. The dining experience was superb. The food was excellent and the service just superb. We were celebrating our 30th wedding anniversary and the server made it special. The food was fresh and well prepared. The desert was excellent. Highly recommend. WIll certainly go back.

We arrived at Il Fornaio in Carmel by the Sea and were promptly greeted by 2 very friendly members of the staff. We were escorted to our table and immediately were served a saucer of Olive Oil on one half and Balsamic Vinegar beside it. A basket of warm soft bread was just begging to be dipped into the mixture... More

Quality of food not up to Italian standards. They seem to cut corners wherever the can. Not bashful about prices.

We have been eaten at Il Fornaio numerous times. We find the food to always be very good and the service is always excellent. The atmosphere is upscale compared to a typical Italian restaurant but it does not feel stuffy. In addition to their regular menu they regularly feature a smaller menu representing a particular region of Italy. The dishes... More
