    IL FORNELLO Italian Restaurant Ajax

    It has not taken very long for IL FORNELLO to move to the top of the list of the best Italian restaurants in Ajax. It’s not just the casual, classic Italian fare like pizzas baked in the wood-burning pizza oven, pasta favourites, salads, appetizers and more that customers are talking about, they love the décor of Ajax’s latest hot spot. The perfect blend of traditional and modern design elements bring a bit of downtown Toronto “cool” to Durham. With 160 seats inside, 60 seats on a spacious outdoor patio/lounge, room for 30 at the bar and a private room capable of hosting 30 for special events, IL FORNELLO, Ajax is quickly becoming “the” place to be in Ajax.

    Love that there is an Il Fornello now located right in the heart of Ajax so I don't have trek all the way downtown Toronto! Christine R. - on Yelp
    Loved the Cannelloni Formaggio. It is done perfect here. You get a generous portion from the dinner menu, that I did not expect. Prices are moderate and affordable. We didn't break the bank. The servers are wonderful and it's very clean. Love the decor as well, it's very inviting from the moment you walk in. Definitely coming again. Caroline B. - on Yelp
