My husband and I wanted to go to a ""nice"" Italian place for dinner so we chose Il Fornaio. I must say, the restaurant is beautiful and they have quite a large menu. The service was good but a little slow being it was dead in there that night. My husband ordered the sausage raviloi and our server recommended me the seafood raviloi. Well, it turns out the food is very pretty but not much taste and not very filling either. My husband's ravioli was pretty good but mine was bad, no taste to it at all. And the special sauce that was on it had no flavor, very disappointing. I told our server that my food was very bland and she was kind enough to offer us a dessert on the house. But then when we got the bill, the dessert was on there! So I had to tell her and she said she ""forgot"" and then had to go back and take it off. Kind of annoying! My husband said it best, ""It was like a meal you'd get at an all-inclusive resort in Mexico."" Not up to par! We'll be going back to Carrabas...sad, huh?
Pros: Beautiful restaurant
Cons: Bland food, small portions
