If your in the mood for Italian why don't you stop by Il Pastaio. It is simply the best Italian you will find in LA. For starters go for their salads. For the main dish I recommend you go for risotto or ravioli. It is absolutely delicious. Trust me a visit to Il Pastaio will not disappoint you.

We had a wonderful lunch at Il Pastaio. The waiters were really nice and helpful. The food was really good! Luckily we were able to sit outside. Lots of celebrities also dine here. It appears that Cristiano Ronaldo had lunch here the day before we arrived. It's a perfect spot to rest during a day of shopping and exploring Beverly... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by two friends and I must say we really ate well. The pasta was delicious and very well prepared.

IL Pasaio feels like eating family style with all the notables of Beverly Hills. It is where locals come for a great Italian dinner. Owner Giocomino Dragon and his family have dominated the local Italian restaurant scene for over 30 years. Great food, great wine, great fun. Be prepared to chat with the tables on either side of you, since... More

The crowds are literally milling outside and the tables are crazy close, but then you eat your meal and they do something special to even the simplest food. I went completely off my low carb mantra after seeing the garlic bread on the next table, thinly sliced pieces of a beautiful loaf of (wholewheat?- Ai hope) bread, toasted almost to... More

Situated on a corner of a popular street in Beverly Hills, this restaurant is great. Not very large, however there is adequate space for outside dining. Service very accommodating. Usually very crowded, but worth the wait. Portions are a bit on the small side, but delicious. Prices could be costly, BUT -- go for it!

Having eaten here many years ago (and having really enjoyed the food), we were concerned about eating here again because of many recent TripAdvisor reviews. We are happy to report that our food was excellent. The place is busy and our waiter wasn't very friendly but that did not stop us from enjoying our meal. I do not know whether... More

Spaghetti Pomodoro had a funny smoky taste that was really off. Other pasta sauce was far too salty. You're paying for the ambience and the food takes a distant second place.

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.
