About Us

At Il Fornaio, our mission is to provide our guests with the most authentic Italian experience outside of Italy.

Each Il Fornaio restaurant has been designed specifically for the communities we serve, so restaurant hours, menus and reservation sizes available may vary by location. We are open for lunch and dinner every day at almost all locations and large parties, private dining groups and special events are welcome at every Il Fornaio.

Using the freshest ingredients and traditional cooking techniques, each Il Fornaio offers a wide variety of premium-quality Italian food paired with great wines and cocktails in beautiful settings located in California, Las Vegas, Seattle and Denver. All 21 kitchens are supervised and guided by Executive Chef Maurizio Mazzon using recipes and preparations that Italians have mastered over centuries of making great food.

These ideals are best demonstrated by Festa Regionale, our monthly exploration of the food and wine of the different regions of Italy. This passion for authenticity has been fostered for almost 20 years. Discover it for yourself by signing up for our Passaporto program.

Il Fornaio also operates two restaurants as Canaletto Ristorante Veneto, located in Newport Beach, CA and in the Venetian Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, NV. The corporate office is located in Corte Madera, CA. Please feel free to send us your feedback.
