Delicious every time!

You definitely need a reservation and a nice sized wallet, but its worth every penny! The food, the service, and the people watching are all excellent! Can't go wrong for a great date night or a solid business lunch.

The salads are amazing here. Be careful to not eat too much bread because you won't want to not have room for dinner.

We visited Il Pastaio in May 2015. Having booked on line we were welcomed by the restaurant manager. On giving our surname she knew our first names without referring to the diary. Given how busy the place was this was an impressive start. We were taken to the bar while our table was prepared and immediately had a drinks order... More

We stopped here given we had seen how busy it was. We had a nice meal which was reasonably priced for the Beverly Hills area. The issue for us occurred after we left and realised that I had left my scarf behind on my seat. I went to the restaurant first thing the next morning and had seen that my... More

I love Il Pastaio. Very consistent food... all the time. Great salads for lunch, and amazing pastas and risotto for dinner.

Excellent service. Everyone is super nice. Now with that said.. You will be sitting really close to the diner next to you. However everyone feels special and the food is so yummy. If you can get outdoor seating go for it.. The food and ambience is sensational.. Great great pasta and and the salads are delicious. Reservations are really necessary...

Everything was excellent, lovely knowledgable staff, great starters of wonderful mozzarella in the caprese, fantastic prosciutto starter. Our mains were also excellent, a beetroot risotto, wonderful osso bucco, and a delightful pasta pomodoro. All in all a great meal.

While Il Pastaio is known for being a celeb favorite, the servers and staff treat all their guests with the same wonderful service. The pasta and seafood are great, always too full for dessert. Can't wait to visit Il Pastaio again.

This is a very trendy restaurant with a very good outside sitting area. The food is very good and the ambiance is even better. Since it is trendy it is best to make reservations.

Our family ate at this restaurant twice during spring break. Both meals were excellent. The service was somewhat better the first visit however, all in all, the food was very good. The only negative was that the second time we visited Justin Bieber arrived at the restaurant after we were already seated and he and, especially his bodyguard, were very... More

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
