Tasty lamb gnocchi, but the real highlight here is the atmosphere and the fantastic reception from the staff, especially Lisette who was more than willing to chat to us about some local spots after introducing us to Creemore Springs UrBock, an local Ontario brew served here. Simon B. Google +
Once the bastion of Greek cuisine, “Greektown” has evolved to the point where you could now very well have the best Italian restaurant experience on the Danforth, without having to go downtown. With Italian classics like pizza, pasta and seafood being prepared in the simple style that has made Italian cuisine such a worldwide favourite, it is no surprise that IL FORNELLO is still considered to be one of the best Italian restaurants on The Danforth. Enjoy a glass of wine and a wood-oven baked pizza on the spacious summer patio or bring the family for the popular Sunday Brunch.
We are located at 576 Danforth Avenue. This is on the north side of Danforth in between Carlaw and Pape. We are a short walk west along the Danforth from the Pape Subway. There is also parking available in the area on the Danforth and several side streets.
All IL FORNELLO menus are created specifically for each of the unique neighbourhoods in which they are located. From the appetizers to the wood-oven baked pizzas, the often house-made pastas, the entrées, desserts and wine selection, we have tailored our menus to reflect the tastes and preferences of our guests. See below for links to downloadable PDF menus and our core menu on display.
This restaurant is very clean, and the service is wonderful. My wife ordered the Spaghetti Bolognese, while I had the Steak. Both were cooked perfectly. Our server Liisa was very attentive, and was proactive in ensuring our needs were met at each step of our dining experience. John M. - Yelp
A great comfortable regular on our list - a nice change from the all-Greek choices on Danforth, especially when you live in the neighborhood. a Zagat User
