Il Fornello - See You Again!
95 Kingston Rd East
Il has a trendy atmosphere that makes you feel like you've arrived underdressed. Made me feel all trendy just being there.
We looked over the lunch features and quickly put them aside; the main menu is where it's at. After my mom and I changing our minds 100 times, she went with the Gnocchi and I selected the Cannelloni . The dishes arrived and they were beautiful; we couldn't wait to dig in. My cannelloni had cheese inside, cheese outside and cheese all over. The sauce could've used something; it was a plain tomato sauce. I know it had a lot of cheese going on, but to have a plain sauce, made it a little unbalanced. The gnocchi, this was clearly the star of the show. After deciding it was awesome, my mom 'allowed' me to try a few bites. Wow. Just plain wow. The sauce was creamy and rich. The gnocchi were light and tasty. It didn't need anything else, but the spinach and crispy shallots were a nice touch.
The service was alright. They never refilled our coffee and barely came to check on us. We didn't need anything(except coffee), but if we had, she was nowhere to be found.
It was a delicious meal and I'd go back. There are many more items on the menu that caught my eye! I hope the staff is a little more attentive next time!
