Bride Reviews

“I LOVE Il Fornaio! They are amazing! Delicious and professional! My New York Italian family all loved the food and that is a big deal for New Yorkers to say that!!”

My husband and I both went to culinary school, so the food was very high on our priority list. I was so happy with the food. I was able to see all the food that was coming out of the kitchen and everything looked great and, more importantly, tasted delicious!! I ended up not going to the cocktail hour, but they were able to arrange for little plates of all the appetizers that were passed around during cocktail hour and had them waiting for us at our sweetheart table! And did I mention that the portions are generous?”

We had a tasting and fell in love with the food instantly—I would give the tasting experience a 10. The food was phenomenal and they customized a mushroom sauce for our steaks!! Everyone at the wedding stated food was great, especially the vegetarian dish.”

“Everything went perfect! The food was perfect.”

“One of the things that really saved me with Il Fornaio and something that I didn’t see very much with other reception locations was the all inclusiveness of their services. The fact that I didn’t have to worry about taxes and gratuity because it was already included was huge. All the packages also include a champagne toast and an open bar for cocktail hour with passed appetizers. They have 2 bottles of wine for each table included with dinner. There is also no cake cutting fee. They don’t charge for the bride and groom’s meal. I could go on and on. Choosing Il Fornaio was the best decision that I made for my wedding reception.

“We had a plated 4 course meal for 80 guests that was executed perfectly as if they only had 4 people to wait on. Their food is amazing and as an Italian, that’s saying a lot! Also, one of our choices was fish and to prepare fish correctly for that many people is very hard to do, but not for Il Fornaio.”

‘I was very happy with our meal and I have gotten a tremendous amount of positive feedback from our guests as well.”

“I had not one worry that day. I never thought I could afford an open bar and I was able to have it. NO hidden costs most important.”

“Our contact was a great resource. She was professional, organized, and also full of great suggestions. She made planning our wedding a breeze.  She was always available and responded through phone call or email within 24 hours or less.  Our contract was very clear, and she worked with my family to make sure we stayed in budget.”

“We plan to go to an Il Fornaio on every wedding anniversary….it’s that good!
