Il Fornaio means "The Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique dining experience. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; a wide variety of desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch. Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2013.

"We have eaten at Il Fornaio in Seattle many times, and consider it one of our favorite go to spots for a consistently delicious and enjoyable meal. We now live in San Jose, but expected to be equally as pleased in choosing the location here. While the service was fine (only mixed up one dish and immediately fixed it), the food was incredibly disappointing. One of the things that has always impressed me is that while Il Fornaio is considered a 'chain', it never felt like one...until this experience. Pasta was overcooked, vodka sauce (usually, my favorite), was watery, steak, while tender and perfectly cooked, lacked flavor. The salad was the best part of my meal. Considering we 'splurged' for this special occasion...unfortunate experience."
