Founded in Milan, Italy, in 1972 as a baking school, Il Fornaio is a national chain offering upscale Italian cuisine and an extensive dessert menu. The Colorado location, in the Denver Tech Center, has a roster that features wood-fired pizzas, fresh pastas made in-house daily, rotisserie meats and, of course, plenty of baked treats.
