IL FORNELLO has long been considered one of the best Italian restaurants in Toronto, Richmond Hill, Oakville and most recently Ajax.
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 seven neighbourhoods in the GTA 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
And with the change in seasons, our Executive Chef Ryan has created some innovative twists on Italian classics for our Two Course, $15 Spring Prix Fixe Lunch menu. With as many as 18 possible appetizer and main combinations, there is something to satisfy everyone’s cravings. Enjoy every weekday at our Bayview, Danforth, King Street and Richmond Hill locations.
