My boyfriend and I went for our anniversary and were looking for a date night ambiance with good food. After reading reviews on Yelp we found what we were looking for. It's worth trying and would definitely go back.

Sfixio is an outstanding restaurant
Sfixio is an outstanding restaurant in every way. There were 4 of us for dinner. We all ordered different dishes and we all tasted each dish. Every dish was perfectly prepared and presented and had its own distinctively delicious taste. The service was attentive without being overbearing. Our service dog was with us and she was treated royally, even being served her own ceramic bowl of water. Thank you Sfixio for an exceptional experience!

Beverly Hills Meets Italia
My husband and I went to dinner for my birthday and as always we had an exquisite authentic Italian meal and experience. The service and food yet again was consistently excellent. We had the best calamari and eggplant parm for appetizers and the homemade pastas & sauces were delicious and unique. The truffled pasta was amazing. The owners Mara & Mossimo were so friendly and gracious to us. The Tiramisu was to die for; not too sweet. It's so beautiful inside yet very comfortable. Thanks for a wonderful birthday dining experience.

I began a search to look for a restaurant that had class, style, and elegance to celebrate my Anniversary. I was definitely a night that was intimate and full of romance. What I experienced surpassed all my expectations. Upon walking in the restaurant, you will gather a vibe of pride and elegance in how business is conducted. The owner has done well in producing this exceptional atmosphere by using the white on white color tone of the restaurant with various accent colors to help focus your attention towards the engagement of your dinner party.
The food is exceptional and fresh. They take pride in the quality of there food, which is noticed in appearance, taste, and the fresh bought ingredients that are never frozen. You will be amazed.

Happy Birthday ToMe
The owners took amazing care of our large group for my birthday dinner last night. The hostess (wife) and chef (husband) were warm, inviting and made all of our guests feel special. The food is made to order and deliciously fresh. You can't go wrong for here for large parties or a romantic date.

We were there with a group
We were there with a group of 6 on a weekend evening. Our table was tucked into a corner and each of us could hear one another and carry on uninterrupted conversation. The atmosphere is elegant but friendly, service is gracious and welcoming, and food is delicious. The menu is not so extensive that it's overwhelming, yet it includes something for everyone -- great appetizers, pasta, meat dishes, salads, and a wonderful Florentine vegetarian dish. We'll be back -- it is a terrific find!

A gem in Beverly Hills
Sfixio is a gem amongst the miasma of ordinary Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills. This fine restaurant is not necessarily for the pizza and spaghetti and meatball crowd, but for those diners with a refined palate and appreciation of first class cuisine. All of us in our party were pleasantly surprised by the food at this very welcome addition to Beverly Hills.

Having eaten wonderful food all over Italy, Sfixio is a little bit of Florence in Beverly Hills. The owner is the chef, born in Florence, and his wife runs the front of the restaurant. Sea bass was grilled to perfection; moist, crisp, and flavored with herbs and a bit of sea salt. We had the special pasta with black truffles and caviar for $35. It really was fantastic; something special in a dish that can be too creamy, too cheesy. Sfixio's was perfect. We'll return often!

Florentine Dining in Beverly Hills
First, Sfixio's owners are absolutely charming and it feels like you are entering their home. Very gracious and friendly.
Second, the food was outstanding ... the pasta was very fresh and the ingredients perfectly balanced. Accompanied by nice wine, Italian coffee, etc. you had the perfect meal. Make sure you try the Tiramisu (the best we've had in a long time.
Lastly, I liked the aesthetics and environment. Nice design cues throughout the place. Would recommend this place to anyone looking for a very good meal in a relaxed, but refined atmosphere.

A quiet place on Little Santa Monic
If you're looking for good, fresh food with good, quiet atmosphere so you can actually hear your friends & don't have to shout through your meal...then go to Sfixio. The owner/chef is from Florence & all the pasta is home made & fresh as can be because they don't freeze anything. I had a truffle & pasta dish which was delicious and we all cleaned our plates. I think Sfixio is an undiscovered gem.

Excellent Florentine style Dining
From the time the hostess (the wife of the chef) greets you until you leave you feel the Italian family hospitality at Sfixio. Topping it off, of course is the great food that this restaurant offers. Our party of four started off with a sampling of the "Italian-style sushi" plates, all which were fresh and delicious, We followed this with various dishes including made to order pasta dishes and branzino. We finished with a selection of desserts to share.
All of us agreed the entire meal was excellent. The décor is fresh and service good. We were not rushed in dining and it was very relaxing. We'll be back again.

What a surprise...
My wife and I stayed at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills and found this little Italian restaurant which claimed to have only freshness on their menu...so...we gave it a try. From the moment the lady of the house welcomed us...to the chef coming to our table (her husband)...to the time we left...we LOVED this place...the food was excellent and the staff were better...HIGHLY recommend it! Best of luck to you!!!!

The BEST homemade food ever!
My husband and I were visiting Beverly Hills and decided to look for an Italian place. The other reviews sounded good, so we went. Amazing location in a great building. Very modern but with a rustic feel with huge white walls and ceilings, including a second story loft for groups. The owner greeted us as if we were coming into her home. She gave us the background on her husband being the chef and recommended the truffle caviar pasta as an appetizer. It was phenomenal! The most decadent pasta I've ever had. She continued to wait on us through dinner and it was really great talking to her... This is a wonderful restaurant with fantastic owners. You can't go wrong for a delicious meal!

"Sfixio" may translate as "Whim", but there is nothing whimsical about the food at this restaurant. Massimo Denaro, the handsome and genial Florentine-born chef-owner and Mara, his beautiful and enthusiastic wife, are exacting perfectionists who serve food of the highest level, comparable to the best restaurants of Florence and the Tuscan coast. Sfixio is easily the best Italian cooking you will find in Beverly Hills.
I'd like to also add that parking is extraordinarily easy, as "Sfixio" is only a three minute walk from one of the metered city parking garages, and parking is free after 6pm.

The Very Best of the Best
This place is INCREDIBLE. Very chic and simple at the same time. We sit in a very romantic table close to the fountain.I felt that me and my date were in an relaxing and delightful restaurant in Italy. Nothing is by chance.
The food is straight from heaven. Balance,Freshness and Presentation make every dish PERFECTION. The fresh pasta is the best I ever had in my life. My date was impressed and she was thanking me for the extraordinary choice i made in selecting this Italian restaurant.From the Champagne to the expresso everything was great. The owners are so sweet and they take proud of what they are doing. The passion they put in is lovely and they make truly feel at home. Excellent fish.Bravo.Bravo.

Sfixio transported us back
Sfixio transported us back to Italy. We tasted the clean fresh ocean in every bite! Not to be missed is their black truffle and caviar tagliolini. There is no freezer so all ingredients are fresh and pasta is made fresh daily, and you could definitely taste that difference! The owner/host Mara and her husband Massimo the Chef are very nice and made us feel so comfortable. Thanks, Mara and Chef Massimo, for a great dining experience and a wonderful birthday celebration! We will be back for the truffle dinner!

This is a combination of elegant
This is a combination of elegant dining at its best with down-home friendly service. A husand (chef) and wife (hostess) team present thoroughly homemade (nothing frozen) northern Italian excellence in a beautifully designed venue. Free or very cheap parking in the attached Beverly Hills structures adjacent make this pretty easy to access. Once you try it, you will be hooked.
