Seattle Weekly's Description

In chain restaurants, "authentic" is usually a synonym for "crap." But Il Fornaio gets the food right, and does it all in local style. Fettuccini Bolognese will remind a paisan of grandma. The ristorante upstairs offers more formal dining with rotating special menus focused on Italian regions. In addition, Il Fornaio's bakery is out in the mall atrium and its Caffe is more secluded, but both cater to the casual diner with morning pastries, coffee, salads, sandwiches, cookies, hearth-baked breads, and food to go.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Seattle Times on 05/13/10

    Il Fornaio is the Vegas buffet of happy hours. Patrons' eyes dart to the antipasto table, a free buffet, including bar favorites chicken wings and pizza bites. Beer costs only $3. Happy hour 4:30-6:30

  • SeattleMonorail on 08/17/11

    Yummy Italian restaurant inside of Pacific Place Mall. Great, friendly service. Diverse menu.

  • Gilt City on 12/21/11

    There’s something for everyone at Il Fornaio—from a purist who only wants spaghetti and meat sauce to a more daring Italian connoisseur eager for pasta with mussels, clams, garlic and wine sauce.

  • CameronNewland.com on 01/17/10

    Make sure to go during happy hour for free food.

  • Inna B. on 03/14/11

    Grab a drink and some free happy hour appetizers from the "buffet" table! The $5 HH pizza looks good, too.
