Whether you like the hustle and bustle of a crowded little Italian restaurant or just want to sit outside and looks for celebs, Il Pastaio BH has a lot going for it. The dishes are a knockout. Save your energy and ask your waiter to choose for you - you won't be disappointed.

Although I do not want more people to stand in line waiting for a table, I also have to be honest and give this restaurant 5 stars , their bread is the best, the service is fabulous ( real waiters, not actors) and I always order the same thing, extra spicy penne arabiata. The wine is good too, the only... More

The problem with this restaurant is that it is so good that it makes other Italian restaurants taste shabby in comparison. So eat here with caution because it might ruin you. The Caesar Salad and Tricolore Salads are amazing and lately I have been eating the Pumpkin Ravioli with Butter Sage Sauce as a main. It is sinfully good. The... More

Really good pastas and fantastic atmosphere in the heart of Beverly Hills. They have very good risotto with truffles on top. The service is very nice and there is sidewalk seating. A taste of Italy in Beverly Hills and delicious.

Il Pastaio is simply authentic Italian with proprietors committed to providing the best. The hospitality, service and entrees were unmatched. We had so much fun watching the cars drive past the windows while enjoying steak, pasta and chicken grilled to perfection as it would almost melt in your mouth. Combined with great wine, this was a spectacular setting and dining... More

We ate an early dinner with seating outside. The food was good but I really expected it to be great. We did love sitting outside viewing the people and cars on the street. The service was excellent and the price was affordable. I will eat here again next time we visit.

Each trip to LA includes a stop at Il Pastaio. Great Italian food, people watching and energy, especially for lunch. Never disappoints.

can't get much better than this, packed to the brim every night we were there, and rightly so. We could tell, a lot of the customers were locals and regular customers. The food was made from scratch, and all of it was delicious. Maybe I am biased, because I love Italian food, and used to eat it for many, many... More
