Dependable Meals at a Conference

I always have breakfast (and either lunch or drinks) in Il Fornaio whenever I am in San Jose for a conference. Generally, I try the pasta or pizza when I'm there to eat and the wine list/bar is good. It's conveniently located in a hotel adjacent to the Marriott and the San Jose Convention center on Market Street, so you can't miss it. Also, it has a cafe if you just need to grab an espresso and a muffin and dash over to the convention center floor. The food is always good and dependable and I have never had less than excellent service from the staff.

Il Fornaio Restaurant Review

Ask any venture capitalist and they'll tell you which Italian restaurant has its catering chops.

Very bad altitude, I had reservation the other day at lunch. I arrived there on time with my guest, but the guy at the check point can not find my reservation. After I went to other place, the open table sent me an email that I missed my lunch reservation.

Everything in this restaurant was pleasant: ambiance, food and service. I think that appetizers were the best. Minestrone soup and sea bass as the main dish was tasty too. Definitely we will come back .

Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have...
