Best Italian Fine Dining
The heart of every Il Fornaio, literally and figuratively, is the oven. In addition to offering superb Italian cuisine, Il Fornaio is justifiably proud of its breads (hence the name, the baker). Once they're ready, the big brick oven is put to other uses roasting vegetables and meats, putting a finish on pasta dishes. The result is the best Italian food in the valley, expertly served in elegant surroundings.
