I've never been disappointed by Il Fornaio in Beverly Hills. I like to go there every couple of months to try something new. They have a diversified menu; I really like their appetizers always made with top quality and fresh ingredients: I would recommend their bruschettas, clamaretti fritti, and prosciutto with melon. They also have delicious soups full of flavors (usually in the specials). My favorite pasta dishes: tagliatelle alla bolognese and pennoni alla vodka.
Great place to go to when shopping on beverly drive!

Pros: Food quality, service

I love coming here. There are definitely the celebrity sightings here, but the waiters and staff are all unpretentious and don't believe in ostentatious showings. The food is great and I lvoe the atmosphere. Everyone should try this place out.

I took the advice of a previous posting and had a special business lunch at Il Fornaio in their private room. Excellent! The food was authentic and absolutely delicious (it seems that everyone who works there - including the chef is from Italy) and the service was great. Rudy was a quick server and made my guests feel well taken care of.
There was also an event person that helped me plan everything. Best part - no extra fees for any of it! (Which is very hard to find in that area!) The prices for the menus were also very reasonable.
Great time - we'll be booking an anniversary party there soon. One piece of advice - book the private room early. I had to try 3 dates before I finally got one that wasn't booked yet!

Pros: Friendly servers, GREAT food and a great space to have a private party!

Cons: Book early for the room. No valet but a parking garage is nearby.

We had a birthday party there in their private room. I hadn't even know that there was a private room (and I've eaten there several times!). It's tucked away in the back and it was just perfect for the 25 of us. They had an event coordinator that helped us plan all the details (choosing the menu, etc) and everything just went perfectly. The service was wonderful (Carla was very attentive and friendly) and the food delicious (authentic, so tastey, GREAT pasta). The price of our set-menu was completely reasonable since it was in Beverly Hills, there was no charge for use of the room and the food was excellent. And there was plenty of their home-made bread and some excellent wine. All of this - and our own room - you can imagine why we had such a great time! Everyone from our party is now asking when they get to celebrate their birthday there! We're pleasing everyone by having our holiday party there next year.

Pros: Private Room, Attentive Service, Great Food

Cons: Make sure you save time for parking - it can be a busy area.

.

The restaurant is very upscale, extremely busy and VERY noisy. I recommend reservations, an empty stomach (great food) and ear plugs.

Nice ambiance with it open kitchen where you can view the cooks preparing the dishes. Great for meetings because they have a private room in the back for quiet setting. The pastas are great and very al dente. Service is horrible though. Oh well.

Pros: Food

Based on all the places I have tried, this is the best Italian food in Beverly Hills. The service is always spot on and, the food is made perfectly. The breads are to die for and the prices are very respectable. I love this place and try to go whenever in town.

Pros: Public parking, Great Food, Good Prices

Cons: You may have a wait

.

The wait is everlong, so definately call ahead. The specials are always beguiling. Pasta is their forte. Ravioli with foie gras is creative and tasty but the portion is teeny. Their three cheese sauce with prosciutto on rigantoni is incredible. Their olive oil is imported and addictive, they also bake their own bread. The place steadily crowded and it can be a bit cramped if you are seated elbow to elbow, but all in all, the Beverly Hills branch impressed me more than the Pasadena one.

This is one of my favorite restaurants around. Their butternut squash ravioli is incredible! And the menu has so many excellent choices. Of course, it's hard to leave room for dinner with all of that wonderful bread sitting in front of you!

Pros: good food, excellent bread, good service

.

I first ate here in San Jose, then visited the local site. SAME GREAT food!!! I visited the restaurant 4 out of 5 weeknights. I had the lamb chops, 3 of those 4, which were the BEST I have ever tasted.
Their menu changes a few items, which keeps it fresh and exciting. On my 3rd visit, the waiter suggested the lamb chops as exceptional - I said "I KNOW, I will have them again!" The bread basket keeps all us bread-o-holics in heaven. Being a balsamic vinegar obsessive, the oil and vinegar served with it - makes is all that much special!!
