We had an early dinner, Carpaccio di Bue, followed by linguine bolognese and angel hair pasta with fresh tomatoes and basil. Which we also had a bottle of Pinot Grigio - fabulous.

We love Il Pastaio and it's our go to for a relaxing weekend meal. Great staff, lovely atmosphere and authentic taste of Trastevere in every bite. Not a place for people who expect giant booths, birthday candles in a cupcake, or pizza. This is the real deal.

Every time we're in LA, we go to Il Pastaio. As another reviewer put it - they know their business. The service is great, the food - especially the pasta - is excellent, and the setting is dynamite. The last time there, they sat our table of 7, with no reservations on a Friday night, at a sidewalk table. It... More

I've been to Il Pastaio several times over the past 15 years and it's always been consistent: the best Italian food on this side of the Atlantic! We had the pasta with truffles and they were to die for. The artichoke salad was also incredible. The wine recommendation (a great Barolo) was also outstanding. The waiter was very knowledgable and... More

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
