Il Fornario offers fine dining in an authentic Italian style. To start with, rosemary, ciabatta, and Italian bread are baked fresh every morning and served to you with dipping oil. The bread was tasty; however, part of the connotation of fresh-baked bread is eating it warm, but this bread was actually colder than room temperature.
Our entrée prices were $17 for chicken parmigiano and $23 for fish. Both of us thought the food was very tasty. My chicken parmigiano was absolutely huge compared to the amount of fish my boyfriend got. For mine, it seemed like they pounded two large chicken breasts until they were flat. The breading was nice and light, and their homemade tomato sauce was very rich and tomatoey. Both entrées came with a side of vegetables, and I recall them being tasty, but the chicken was better, so I focused on that until I couldn't eat anymore.
The restaurant is situated right off the main casino floor near a bumbling stream. There was a bar "inside," but we chose to eat alfresco, next to the stream, so we could people-watch. It was almost a romantic atmosphere, except for the loud people who were obviously winning big over at the craps table.
