It is a very busy place, hard to get a table, the service is excellent, menu selection is great for anything you have in mind for. Food presentation is beautiful and great Sheff Jiacomino Drago's touch is superb! Try to sit outdoors if you can't stand the noise inside. Truffle plates are to die for and if you are in... More

I have been dining here since 1996. I appreciate the great food and the great service. This place is always busy. I often say that even with a 9.0 earthquake there would be a wait to get a table. In other words, it's worth the wait. In a city of huge egos to see them tempered for a chance to... More

We tried this restaurant on our 3 week trip to the US and our 4 day in LA. After reading the reviews I took my wife and son to this restaurant hoping for quality Italian food. I had chicken arrabatia and it was awful. I could have made much better myself. The sauce had no flavour and some of the... More

Our friends' favourite Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills. It is in such a busy area, there was no way one can park. We used Il Pastaio's valet service. The restaurant is ever so busy, crowded, and the tables so close to one another, you can hear your neighbours talk . Table turnover was brisk. Service is excellent, very friendly and... More

What can be said about this precious gem in the heart of Beverly Hills that has not been said before? If you ever stop here, by chance or because someone recommended it to you, you are already one of the hundred of thousand customers who are sure to come back for more. The best is the best, and il Pastaio... More

While visiting in Beverly Hills in March my husband and I dined at ll Pastaio one lovely afternoon for lunch. Initially disappointed that we were not able to be seated outside, we were later happy that we were in close proximity inside to a charming young couple from India. The service was excellent, but the food was merely adequate. Nothing... More

This restaurant is a little bit of Italy smack in the middle of Beverly Hills. It's busy and bustling. The service is impeccable and the food is good but not memorable. It's worth a visit.

This restaurant has very high ratings on trip advisor and I'm not 100% sure why because the food is not spectacular as one may derive from the ratings I am always fair when I review a place so this is what we concluded. 1) Service was fantastic 2) Restaurant was very tight quarters inside and out and the ability to...

This is one of the best Italian restaurants I have been to. The restaurant atmosphere is excellent - it is just buzzing. The service was excellent - never overdoing it. The meals were simple classics in most cases but the presentation and substance made them outstanding - each course tasted freshly made and was full of flavour. Would definitely go... More

Seasoned travellers wanting to escape the routine samo same, try this. Most Italian restaurants are faked up boil in the bag repros. This is not one of them. Not only is the food brilliant the service could have been transported from Italy itself. No "how is everything" every 5 minutes, they actually know their business and get in with it.... More
