Always Dependable Authentic ItalianIn an unpredictable world, I love that I can always depend on Il Pastaio to serve up authentic northern Italian food with loving attention to detail. Don't miss the handmade pastas. And the branzino, as a main, is always a winner.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMVisited Il Pastaio duringVisited Il Pastaio during a weekend trip to L.A. From Chicago.

A genuine Italian restaurant.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNeighborhood Gem Serves Great ItaliThis restaurant was recommended to us by a frequent traveller who is a former Beverly Hills resident. She told us its the first place she comes to and would never be happy if a trip to LA didn't include a meal here. We were treated graciously and told that a dish we wanted could be made with homemade pasta though it didn't happen to feature homemade pasta originally. The waiter also told us, "if it's Italian, we'll make it for you!". One of us had a fish special which was generous and truly delicious; a spicy seafood pasta was terrific. Homemade ravioli was a bit too al dente but the filling and sauce were delicious. The friendly atmosphere and location around lovely shops made for a perfect, relaxed, unpressured dining experience.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper,great and wonderfulSuper,great and wonderful evening and fantastic food3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMdinner for 2 at this BH spotdinner for 2 at this BH spot with always good celebrity and big wheel hollywood sightings ... great food, and super service3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious dining and attentiveDelicious dining and attentive service at this bustling restuarant.
