A word from Via Alloro
Guests dining in Beverly Hills enjoy sitting outside and Via Alloro is the place for them. This is the first restaurant in the area to offer more than 100 patio seats, which wrap around the building so you can see and be seen! Guests at Giacomino’s and Tanino’s restaurants include actors, actresses, politicians, sports stars, business people, neighbors and tourists…they have so many regular guests and everyone is treated like family! Outside seating at Via Alloro has a different atmosphere in each area too and inside there are 34 seats with an additional 20 seats in the lounge. Speaking about the lounge, from 7 flat screen TVs guests will be able to watch sports all the time from basketball, baseball, ice hockey, American and European Football. You will also be able to eat at the bar for lunch and dinner too. Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Via Alloro is an OK place where food service are always OK, but never special or unique. It is an upscale El Fornaio, a clone of other celestino drago places. It is a safe bet when you're not sure where to go. No surprises either good or bad."

  • "Not over the top just very good food and service. A definite 4 Star restaurant."

  • "I would totally recommend this restaurant. It is located in Beverly HIlls, but it is reasonably priced. The food is delicious, the ambiance even better, and there is even some music on the weekends. It is also a nice family place. Enjoy!"

  • "Boy, was I impressed with Via Alloro. We were there celebrating my birthday, and none of my friends and I had ever been there. The service was great. We sat inside and it was really pretty. Our waiter was very attentive and precise. Everyone was very happy with their order. The bread was delish. We ordered a margarita pizza to share as an appetizer. Yum! The fettucini boscaiola was out of this world. My friend got the calamare salad and loved it, and another got the tagliatele porcini which was also a hit! The desserts were UNBELIEVABLE!. The pistachio molton cake was heaven in my mouth, and we got a special dessert they had called Amaretto Mascarpone. OMG! Excellent job Via Alloro...you just made 5 teachers extremely happy. A+"

  • "I absolutely love their food! Everything is spot on and Tanino is wonderful. My experience with our waiter was different than most visits, he was a little pushy and added items to our bill we didn't order. We did have a party of 6 and he took the liberty of adding 20% not 15% to the bill. I can't say enough about the food and the Papa Drago wine, it is my all time favorite."

  • "Well what can I say, another Italian restaurant, pizza=ok, bread=fair, salad=average. Tourist trap=definitely. Kind of a bore.... In fact I'm so bored writing about this restaurant that ill stop here.... don't waste your time unless you are bored!!!!!!!"

  • "After a very off-handed welcome by the hostess, we were seated at a choice outdoor table on the less noisy side of the restaurant! The food and service were excellent. The waiter and bus boys were very attentive, and we shared a delicious lunch and pleasant service. Great way to spend a Saturday afternoon!"

  • "Food was excellent. Service was quite slow which was a bit disappointing given there were only a few other tables at the time we were dining."

  • "I order some great wine by the ounce and found out the waiter gave me a cheaper wine and charge me the higher price, that a mortal sin. thats very low for a restaurant to do. I don't want anything to with a place like that. to top it off my chicken dinner was cut very thin like a piece of veal would be cut , this place scams to much .. whats really bad about this that this family owns other high end place in the area."

  • "On our fourth visit to Via Alloro, we had dinner inside the lovely dining room. The food and service was wonderful, and this restaurant is now a family favorite. We will have dinner at Via Alloro several times this year."

  • "Great Food and very friendly staff. I am vegetarian and could not figure out what I wanted to eat. So, my food-server helped me get Pasta Combo with three different pastas. It was amazing and loved it."

  • "They never answer the phone, no valet parking, restaurant name not visible, dinner is less than an appetizer in a restaurant. Very unsafe ; they are next to a stip club and you can't see their sign from the street, they don't answer the phone to help out. This was the most horrible customer service experience. And the food, that's something else altogether: For $65 per person, we had 6 bites of food, even if each bite was tasty, this should not be called dinner."

  • "This was the third or fourth time that Via Alloro failed to make note of my arrival and report it to Open Table, even though, after being seated, I asked my waiter to be sure that my arrival had been noted in their computer because, as I told him, "The hostess does not appear to be the brightest person on the planet." In spite of this, my presence was not recorded, and I had to prove to Open Table that I had, indeed, dined at Via Alloro. Something is wrong with their check-in procedure! Robert Herman"

  • "We had a great table right by the outdoor fountain. From the hostess to our servers the customer service was amazing. We met new friends and stayed for 4 hours. The food was delicious and I did not care for first bottle of wine so they opened a different one no problem. My girlfriend was in from out of town and they did not mind taking quite a few pictures of us until we got the perfect one."

  • "I tried this restaurant because a friend recommended it, and it is in the Drago family. We opted to sit inside, which was great. Lots of TVs didn't distract from the delicious food. The three of us sampled eacho others dishes and loved them all. The service was great and the staff friendly. This could be a more romatic settiin if you sit outside, or more of a family dining place that is reasonably priced.Loved the sweet corn ravioli in the truffle fondue sauce."

  • "This was our second time eating here while in Beverly Hills. The food was delicious and prepared the way one would experience in Italy. The risotto and pasta dishes are representative of the expert culinary skills of the chef/owner and proudly served by his able staff. Your efforts are much appreciated from a seasoned diner."

  • "I've eaten at this restaurant several times and have returned several times because I really liked it. However, on this particular visit the service has me wondering if I will ever be back. I took out of town business guests who were excited to go and we were all let down when we were ignored by our waiter, had to track people down to try and get any kind of service and tried for nearly 20-minutes to find our waiter for the check at the end of the meal. The food was OK, but when the service isn't on par with the meal it makes for an unpleasant experience."

  • "It was refreshing not to be rushed, while my friend and I spent several hours eating and catching up. The food was excellent, atmosphere was nice, and the service was very good (and yet not obtrusive)."

  • "Our party of 5 had a requested round table, outside in front of the singer. We enjoyed the ambiance and the music and singing very much. At first, we thought that the music and the (female) singer would be too loud for us to hear one another due to the very short proximity to all of that. But that was not the case at all! I think we benefitted from that close proximity, actually! We will likely be booking Via Alloro for our next NYE dinner, and we hope they will seat us where they did this last time, and that they have the same delightful and talented singer/musician there, as well. (Btw, I don't normally write a review - good or bad - but the fact that all of our party felt the same way as I did, I felt I had to represent our experience.)"

  • "Always delicious and the Drago brothers are so charming! If it's not on the menu just ask and they will make it. You have to love that!"

  • "The veal was not tender. It was so tough that I had difficulty cutting it, even with a steak knife. Although I have never tasted shoe leather, this veal is what I imagine shoe leather would feel and taste like in my mouth."

  • "I was first to arrive and was seated at the table alone. Nobody said anything to me. I finally had to ask a waiter for a wine list. Two of them in fact stood right in front of me ans my table amd were just chatting bit did not turn aeound to even say hello or offer a drink. Otherwise foos and everything was hood. The waiter was food the rest of the night."

  • "I come here often but it is frankly nothing outstanding or special. This time I had the lobster spaghetti and it was good but there is nothing that I would say is outstanding. Their pizza is well worth trying."

  • "Food is fair, service average, prices ok. Nothing special in anyway."

  • "As we entered the restaurant there were people smoking cigars in the tented area. When I asked the hostess wire people smoking in your restaurant she answered we asking the stop but the smoking anyway and there's nothing we can do about it. I don't know I find someone smoking it puts me off my meal and I know it is against the law to smoke anywhere's near or buy a restaurant in Beverly Hills. I should've left but I continued on. We were encouraged not to eat the feel scallopini from the regular menu but to have their special which was bad."
