Il Fornaio

Seasonal, locally sourced Italian fare is our specialty here at Il Fornaio. Savor fresh meat and seafood, perfect al dente pasta, or a crispy pizza – all created by our expert chef, and complemented by delicious regional wines. Sit indoors at the counter and watch the activity in the display kitchen, or relax outdoors and soak in the ocean views. Take advantage of our free breakfast every weekday from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m., as well as great happy hour specials every weekday from 4:00 p.m. until 6:00 p.m. Please let us know if you’re interested in planning a private gathering, too; our restaurant offers a wonderful setting for intimate events.
