214 King Street West, Toronto

The Queens Quay location of Il Fornello was where we first discovered the delicious Cookoothama Shiraz. With such a funny name and the child-like hand impressions on the bottle, we were intrigued. It’s now a house-hold favourite.
The food is reliably good at Il Fornello; I never can complain and having been several times to both the Queens Quay and King Street locations. It’s one of those places I didn’t even think to review.
I love their pizzas for their unique combinations and nice size.
I love the Prosciutto and Fig pizzas.
Their pastas are hearty but for those (read: me) who like things more spicy or flavourful, even THEIR spicy is not enough.
The dishes are on the pricier end for Italian food ($15-25 for a main), and I think I prefer the Queens Quay location a bit more as the servers are not as harried, but for a pre or post-theatre meal on King street, Il Fornello is a safe choice where everyone can be satisfied.
