Il Fornaio COVID-19 Health & Safety Precautions

Wednesday, May 27, 2020

As we prepare to open our restaurants for dine in and offer delivery/take-out, the health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority. We are continuing to follow the guidance of the CDC and local health departments and are adhering to all safety best practices.

Precautions to protect the health of our employees and guests include:

Elevated Sanitation & Disinfection
-Increased frequency of all sanitizing and cleaning measures
-Regulated hand-washing schedule for employees

Social Distancing
-Limited dining room capacity and reconfigured seating throughout the restaurant to meet social distancing guidelines

Protecting Employee Health & Hygiene
-Wellness and temperature checks of all employees before each shift
-Providing all employees in our dining rooms and kitchens with protective equipment including required face coverings and gloves

Additional Measures
-Tables will not be preset with napkins, utensils or glassware. Utensils will be presented rolled within a napkin.
-Single-use disposable menus or digital menus are now in place.
-Guests are requested to wear face coverings when stopping to pick-up food To Go or on their way to and from their table in the dining room. This is a request, not a requirement (except where local mandate requires).
-Takeout containers will be provided upon request for guests to pack their leftovers.

We’re grateful for your support and understanding and look forward to serving you! To see which locations are open near you, make a reservation or order take-out/delivery, visit
