IL FORNELLO has long been considered one of the best Italian restaurants in Toronto, Richmond Hill, Oakville and most recently Ajax and Barrie.
In Italy "pizza a legna" (wood-fired pizza) is available everywhere, but it wasn't until Il FORNELLO opened their first Toronto restaurant and offered authentic, wood-fired oven, Neapolitan style, thin crust pizza that Torontonians were able to experience pizza the way it was meant to be enjoyed.
Now there are Il FORNELLO, Italian kitchen bars in eight neighbourhoods in the GTA and across Southern Ontario and still making the best pizza you’ve ever tasted and offering authentic Italian antipasti, pastas, entrées and more in a welcoming environment inspired by the Italian table where you can relax, share and enjoy your meal with family and friends.
The IL FORNELLO team is driven by a dedication to creating exceptional food and providing outstanding customer service. The culinary talents of Executive Chef Ryan Kowalyk have resulted in a delectable balance of traditional Italian fare and innovative new classics, setting the stage for a memorable dining experience for our guests.
