“Brunch at Scarpetta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

Last weekend I took my cousin for brunch for her 60th birthday at Scarpetta inside the Montage Hotel in BH. What a blast! We were greeted warmly by our wait staff and were promptly directed to the incredible buffet which is in the kitchen. The choices were unlike any others you find on a "normal buffet" and there is also a separate menu on each table from which you can have "made to order" selections. You can order everything on the menu if you want to! Even if you only want one bite of something you are encouraged to do so! If you are frugal this is not the right choice for you. Brunch for two people (plus Bellini's) cost about $230. This included the tip. Well worth every penny. After brunch you can walk around the beautiful grounds of the hotel. We'll be back for sure!!

“Celebrating our Silver Wedding at Scarpetta”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013 via mobile

We visited LA for the first time to celebrate our Silver Wedding Anniversary and whilst staying at the Intercontinental in Century City, Luis the Concierge recommended Scarpetta as the ideal location to celebrate such an occasion.
We travelled in style to the Montage Hotel, home to Scarpetta in the hotels limousine and enjoyed one of the finest meals we have ever eaten.
With so many delicious items on the menu we were spoilt for choice so opted for the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings (all fine Italian vintages) and course after delicious course came and went each more delightful than the previous a truly memorable meal.
The service was excellent and our waitress presented us with petits fours on a plate which the chef had inscribed in chocolate wishing us a happy silver wedding anniversary (see attached photograph).
I can't recommend this restaurant highly enough, if you ever find yourself in LA you really must try it.

“OUTSTANDING FOOD & SERVICE”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

This is one of the best restaurants in all of LA. Every course is delectable. The pasta is fresh and melts in your mouth. Selections are varied and service is best in the biz. Chef often comes out at dinner to talk to guests and even shaved parmesan cheese on our pasta dish. Brunch is also EXTREMELY good, but dinner is my fav!!

“A better than average over-priced hotel restaurant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

Absolutely love staying at the Montage in Beverly Hills and am a frequent visitor. Tried Scarpetta for the first time recently and came away quite disappointed. Simply put, there are many better alternatives for Italian food in LA at much more reasonable prices. WIne list is stupidly priced, and sommelier has a difficult time as a result recommending anything approaching reasonable. Signature items like bread basket and spaghetti were good but not great, and fish entree was decidedly average. My sense of this place is that it is mostly for foreign guest or first dates where someone is trying to impress. Service was friendly but not as professional as it should have been for this caliber restaurant. Glad I tried to get it out of my system but would not run back.

“get ready for the spaghetti”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

So we had to go to Scarpetta to try the spaghetti, which was very good and worth the hype. The dish that we really loved was the creamy polenta...very delicious!
