    This was my first time coming here. My dad met me there and it was his first time as well. The service was excellent, everyone was very attentive and service was quick. The food was good, and the noise level and ambience was perfect for myself and my dad. It wasn’t too loud, and it wasn’t too quiet either. My dad said he’s definitely going to come back for sure and  he’s someone who’s very picky with food. Only problem I had at this location was after I got my ticket validated it still didn’t work when I tried to get out of the structure, but it seemed to work for my dad so that was the only bad thing. Other than that it was great.

    steak was ordered medium and came out well done. Remade another and was the same. Recooked the same steak and came out precisely a little better but not content. Paid a ribeye at $79 and quality was chewy.

    Our group of four enjoyed the special Under the Tuscan Sun menu offerings, especially the Panzanella, spinach ravioli and profiterol dessert. Our waiter Tony was very friendly and attentive!

    The appetizers were great, so were the entrees. Il Fornaio is always consistently good.
