“Super pasta.”
Reviewed March 11, 2013

Busy restaurant on Canon. Fun place if you don't mind the hustling/bustling of business people talking loud about Wall Street or at the next table you hear Hollywood gossip. Calamari are very good, the pastas are ALL really wonderful. Compared to other restaurants in the BH/WH area this one is a bargain.

“Excellent”
Reviewed March 1, 2013

Being French with Italian origin and having lived un Italy , my expectation for Italian restaurant are very rarely met. I could not expect such a good Italian nearby rodeo drive. This is an anomaly. Had calamari fritti extra light and fresh . Pasta ai frutii del mare also excellent . My children had risotto al fungi which was excellent. Gelati seemed home made. Seemed to be the place to be seen, but I believe it should be simply the place to eat when food means something to you.

“Good Italian, Reasonably Priced”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

If you like quiet, non bustling restaurants, Il Pastaio is not the place for you. We were seated inside, back right hand corner, and could hear almost every conversation going on in the place. From robust Mayoral debates, sale pitches to potential investors for an online dating site and the you can't escape it while in this town, Hollywood talk. But that didn't overshadow our experience. There were 4 of us, 2 adults and 2 children and all of us were completely satisfied with our meals. Calamari and Prosciutto to start of with was good. The pasta courses were even better. But what was truly great was the service, everyone, waiter (dry and straight to the point, sarcasm wasn't on the menu for him), the bus boys and the food runners, were on top of everything. Water was replenished, drinks refilled and plates cleared swiftly. Oh and the prices are fantastic. If you're in Beverly Hills and don't want to spend a mortgage payment on a meal, head over to Il Pastaio.

“Warm Italian ambience on a cool California Night”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This was a lucky find---having just flown in to Beverly Hills on a cold evening, our flight was late and we called and told (asked them) to move our reservation to a later time.

Upon our arrival, we were taken to an outdoor table, a bit nervous because of the temperature, but were pleasantly surprised by the warmth of patio heaters surrounding us.

The staff was wonderful, warm and welcoming, our server made some recommendations and we took his suggestions and were pleasantly suprised by the quality and quantity of food presented to us.

The Veal I orderd was knife tender, and the sauce was outstanding. Other members dined on the Grouper and Lobster ravioli and found them to be wuite pleasing. The wine selections are outstanding and for Beverly Hills area dining, the prices were quite reasonable. I would highly recommend this establishment to anyone seeking a casually elegant, relaxed evening after a long flight from the east!!!!
