company snapshot

Il Fornaio

InterWest partnered with other investors to purchase the Il Fornaio bakery operation from Williams Sonoma in 1983. Through the 1990s, the business grew into an upscale Italian restaurant and bakery chain based in the San Francisco Bay Area. After a successful IPO in 1997, Il Fornaio went on to open 22 restaurants in six states. Since then, the company has been taken private via leveraged buyout.
