Went for lunch and we both had the mini pizza and a salad and they were great. Reasonably priced and the pizza was delicious. In and out quickly so perfect spot if you just want a quick tasty lunch for a decent price.

Had lunch here last week and was incredibly disappointed. Ordered the fig/prosciutto honey drizzled pizza and it was almost inedible. It was swimming in honey, which is very different from the way this pizza is served at the Il Fornello in Toronto on King St....More

the pizza is the way to go, I would recommend not to deviate. Got Lamb shank as a main-would not recommend Got oyster as an app- would not recommend (not fresh) Stick to truly italian on this menu if you want to enjoy your experience.

We visited as a family for an early dinner. Restaurant is stroller accessible and the staff were very accommodating in ensuring that we had a table in a good spot for our stroller. Service was great. Food was pretty average - nothing amazing.

I visited this Italian bar and kitchen twice whilst in Ajax. The selection of beers on draught was good - many of them local brews. The food was good quality and tasty. Prices were quite high, but not un-typical of Ontario. The toilets (restrooms) were...More

Went with my brother to take advantage of the $10 pizzas after 4pm. I got the mushroom one, it was very delicious and hot when it came out. Bruschetta for an app was ok, would have been nice to have some melted cheese on top....More

It has not taken very long for IL FORNELLO to move to the top of the list of the best Italian restaurants in Ajax. It’s not just the casual, classic Italian fare like pizzas baked in the wood-burning pizza oven, pasta favourites, salads, appetizers and more that customers are talking about, they love the décor of Ajax’s latest hot spot.
