I have dined here many times and have never been disappointed. They do a nice job with all the pastas and the fish dishes. I have also tried many of the regional menu specials which is a great deal at 3-course dinner for $ 36. Last night we enjoyed the regional special from Piemonte, Italy. Good selection of wines and the service is very attentive.

I have been to the Roseville, California Il Fornaio restaurant a few times. The Grigliata Di Pesce Misto is a mixed seafood dish that was scrumptious. The Brasato Al Vino Rosa is short ribs with mashed potatoes and spinach. It is to die for! The bread prior to the meal is excellent. On top of all this, they have a Gluten-Free menu. This is superb Italian cuisine.

It was a beautiful day when we were there, so w sat outside.
Service was good, food came in a timely manner.
We all pasta and everyone enjoyed what they had.
Another couple we met in there said their food was not good and they would not be back.
We had heard that it was hit or miss and I guess we hit it and they did not.

This is our go to restaurant when we want a nice dinner, great food and great service. We are never disappointed. We really enjoy the regional dinners and the chance to try something new every month.

We spent the month of September in Italy and have been going to Italy for decades. The food in this restaurant can be reminiscent of dishes we have enjoyed while there, and that is a huge compliment. But I broke my own rule and went there on probably the worst day of a restaurant's week, a Monday, and a Monday lunch at that. The "C" crew was definitely on duty at that time.

There were very few people dining so it was surprising that our food was not hot. I was OK with my salmon at room temperature, but a Bolognese pasta not hot is not great.

Our waitress was consistently intrusive and her lack of experience and polish were obvious.

Their veal was quite tasty and all of the seasoning for our various dishes was very good. We have had many great meals at various Il Fornaios around California. But maybe having lunch on a Monday is a great marker overall, and our meal should have been much better.
