On a Sunday afternoon, I stopped in at Il Fornello on the Danforth. This popular Italian eatery prides itself as being the first Toronto restaurant offering wood-fire, authentic style Neapolitan thin crust pizza. I was happy to be able to finally visit and check out their accessibility!
The entrance has no steps and is accessed through 34-inch wide double doors (68-inches in total). Once inside, there is a second door measuring 36-inches. The restaurant seating options include 29-inch tall tables with movable chairs, a 40-inch bar with movable stools, and booth style seating.
The restaurant is all on one level with wood flooring. The private, accessible washroom has a 32-inch wide door that swings inwards. The washroom is 83-inches by 62-inches. A horizontal grab bar is located behind the toilet, and an angled grab bar is situated beside it. The sink is 26-inches high with clearance space underneath. Soap and paper dispensers can be reached on either side of the sink. There is a change table in the washroom and no automatic features.
If you are interested in take-out, Il Fornello’s delicious menu is available through many popular delivery apps. If driving, there is ample street parking on Danforth available. Alternatively, if taking transit the accessible Pape Station on Line 2 is 300m away.
