The Home of Il Fornaio



 Our dedication to authentic Italian recipes can be traced back to the original Il Fornaio baking school, founded in 1972. The school was established to serve as a repository and resource for authentic regional recipes and as a way of preserving the traditional “old way” of Italian artisan baking. This month we celebrate our heritage in many ways, from the ciabatta we serve every night (yet another Lombardian original) to each dessert we make in our kitchens.

Join us for dinner January 2-22 and enjoy a menu specially crafted by Chef Francesco Gazzana highlighting the traditional food of Lombardia! Taste dishes such as Salmoncino Franciacorta, salmon fillet sautéed with red grapes, shallots and Franciacorta sparkling wine served with mache salad and roasted Yukon Gold potatoes.
Passaporto holders who taste the menu will receive an Il Fornaio Farmers Market Bag as a token of our thanks for sampling the Festa Regionale menu. Make your reservation today to experience all that Lombardia has to offer!
