Fodor's Review

Whether producing crusty loaves of freshly baked bread, house-made pasta, or dough for its excellent thin-crust, wood-oven pizzas, this soothingly neutral Italian restaurant will satisfy carb cravings as well as yearnings for dishes that Grandma used to make. Not only can you taste the love in your lasagna, but also feel the comfort that comes from watching it prepared in the exhibition kitchen, from whence seasoned fish, grilled meats, and juicy rotisserie, such as free-range

rosemary chicken, are also created and plated with fresh ingredients. Tiramisu is a must and best enjoyed from the terrace, where you can watch passersby. Buy a loaf to go in the diminutive bakery, located just steps away; other foodie finds are also available. Il Fornaio is a great place for breakfast and brunch or for pastry take-out from the bakery.

Chain restaurant. Nothing special.

This is a chain of restaurants. I have eaten in Il Fornaios in Carmel, Los Angeles and Vegas. I would not recommend this particular location. Careml and LA was much better. Food was just OK. Service was fine. There is much better to be had in Vegas.

Il Fornaio made me ill

Dont waste your time for a nice Italian meal here. The atmosphere is nice, you can sit outside and watch the various people walk by and gamble. However, the service was very poor. My wifes wine glass still had some lipstick from the previous user and we asked for a new glass. So, our waiter goes and gets a new glass and them pours the wine from the dirty glass into the new one...right in front of us! We also ordered Angle Hair pasta and it came

out looking like it had sat under a heat lamp for an hour or so. I can go on but please dont waste you time or money here. You will get a better return for your money at a slot machine.

Was I in Italy?

Except for the price, I felt like I was back in Rome. It's a little pricey, but still reasonable. Everyone has a thick Italian accent giving an authentic ambience. The bread was good, salad good and "outside" seating wonderful. My main meal was just OK - angel hair was a little dry and clumpy. Chianti was excellent and our waiter got us to our show in plenty of time.
