You might initially come for the spectacular view over the Bay onto San Diego's dramatic skyline, but once you've visited Il Fornaio Italian Restaurant in Coronado, you'll return for the exquisite authentic cuisine that accompanies the sweeping view. A talented team of chefs representing all areas of Italy is on hand to ensure that your meal is "autentica"--a reflection of true Italian cuisine that is not often replicated in restaurants outside of 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 been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, ocean-fresh fish and shellfish; house made pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and homemade soups; a wide variety of traditional Italian and Sicilian desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch. From home-made pastas with savory sauces, to fresh seafood, grilled meats, and fabulous desserts, Il Fornaio consistently delivers a truly authentic Italian culinary experience. And you simply cannot beat the view onto San Diego's sparkling skyline across the bay as you savor the exquisite flavors of "Bella Italia."
