Regular Hours

General Info:
Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted breads hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. In the tradition of Italy's thousandfold trattorias, the sights, sounds and aromas of authentic Italian cuisine are recreated fresh everyday at Il Fornaio Cucina Italiana. The restaurant has a number of locations in California, including one in Walnut Creek.

Success! Thanks for posting your review of Il Fornaio. You’ve done the world some good today.

It's nice to be reintroduced to il Fornaio again. The food was excellent and the staff were all superb. I especially love the butternut squash ravioli and the chicken dishes. Make sure you save room for dessert too, because they are all delicious. A good one to try is the Dolce Trio which gives you a sample of three delicious desserts. I love their happy hour too! Beautiful restaurant, friendly service and fres... view more

I have been to the Walmut Creel location 4 or 5 times, mostly as a guest of some one else. I have found the food to range from good to bad. At least 1 person in my group was unhappy with their food. The service has always been poor. There are so many good places in the Walnut Creek area, so I say pass on this place

This place was GREAT. From the Staff to the food, clean, etc. Great place to take the wife for a night in Walnut. You wont run into young kids at this place. They are a tad bit on the Pricey side, but well worth it.

Excellent Dining Experience!

I had never dined at Il Fornaio before and decided to give it a try with a friend over the weekend. The restaurant is in the heart of downtown Walnut Creek and a perfect place to end a day of great shopping and sightseeing. We were immediately greeted by a friendly hostess who seated us outside on the patio. Our server was amazing, prompt with delivering our drinks and very helpful in answering our menu questions.

Just Like Eating in Italy

I've never been to Italy, however I'm pretty sure that eating at Il Fornaio is as close as I'm ever going to get. This was a great experience, I took my mom and the family here for her birthday and we had an amazing time. The food was exceptional, the staff was friendly, and the menu was abundant.

Bad time at Il Fornaio

Do not eat here; it is as simple as that. They actually served my wife an un-opened mussel as part of her meal. For those that don't know that means it was dead when it was cooked and that is not good (bad things happen inside dead shellfish!!!). Of course they cooked her meal again, however, by that time my meal was cold and not very good either. To add insult to injury rather than taking the time to understand t... view more

Going down hill !!!

Took my family for my daughters birthday celebration. Just the 4 of us. Seemed to overwhelm the server. She poured the wine sampling for me to taste, then went on to pour for my ladies and left my glass with just the sampling. Had to refill our glasses ourselves. Ordered an entre that was featured as a special, after 30 minutes the server returned to tell me they were all out (Should she have known befroe that?)... view more
