Fantastic food. Ambiance, service and location
Delicious gluten free pasta. Lovely restaurant. :)
Way, way, too noisy! Ths, even though the place was not crowded for lunch!
Very fresh and delicious pasta. Particularly enjoyed their papperdelle venison pasta. Mmmmm. Next time in town I'd return.
My favorite Italian restaurant
Amazing waiter, amazing table, amazing food & amazing wine!!
I cannot understand why so many people go and suggest this place cause the food and the service are terrible! Me and my friends got as appetisers tuna and salmon carpaccio, both with no flavoure, as a main courses we got salmon, branzino and cacio e pepe pasta, the pasta was ok but the fishes were really bad and not fresh at all! We paid a lot for nothing. I will not suggest Pastaio to anyone!
Il Pastaio was recommended to us by a friend, and it did not disappoint. It is a bit of a tight squeeze as the tables are really close together, but that only adds to the ambiance. The food was amazing, and I was a little sad when my dish was done. When we are back in LA again, this will be our go to restaurant.
Great location, beautiful people, the best servers and service, excellent food, wonderful wine collection and amazing atmosphere.
It was great. We enjoyed all of the dishes ordered.
great location for lunch and business. highly recommend.
Food was excellent - very traditional Italian, nothing fancy or ‘nouvelle’, just really great, fresh ingredients, prepared with style and soul!
Il Pastaio is one of my favorite restaurant in Los Angles, CA ! The food is amazing, their famous truffle pasta is to die for you may request for it to be tossed in a cheese wheel right next to your table its so fascinating to watch! Warm pasta tossed in a cheese wheel and then placed onto your plate, when you thought it could not get any better then they shred some black truffle on the cheesy pasta! I do not exaggerate when I say it is to die for! Truffle is a very strong ingredient and they sure know exactly how to use it! They have incredible staff, everyone is so friendly and caring. They are so inviting and put their time into assuring that your are satisfied with everything! This restaurant is also very clean which I always pay attention to but find very few restaurants that I can trust with cleanliness. The atmosphere is also amazing! You get such a cozy feeling with the Italian music playing and the waiters and employees speaking Italian to one another. Makes me feel like I am in Italy. I recommend Il Pastaio to everyone that asks for restaurant recommendations. No one is ever disappointed. When in LA this is one of the top must try restaurants! Perfect for a date, a group outing, for special occasions even for a small family dinner with kids, it is defiantly a kid friendly environment. Here is some of my favorite things to order when there. For starters Prosciutto and Calamari Fritt. Main course, Linguine con Crostac ( Lobster Linguine), Truffle pasta, and when available their sea bass. If you are a soup lover their Minestrone di Verdure and Zuppa di Lenticchie is amazing! Favorite drinks to order, their house prosecco, mojita and dirty martini. Last but not least! Dessert and Coffee, you can never go wrong with tiramisu. Tiramisu is my favorite dessert and I have to try it at every restaurant I go to when its on the menu! Il Pastaio has the best Tiramisu. Of course a double cappuccino or latte to go with my favorite dessert. Hope this review was helpful!
Delicious food! I had the agnolotti which was to die for!
Great, attentive service and fun atmosphere- great for people watching.
Always in love with this place ❤️ beautiful service and amazing food every time.
So I got the lobster and crab pasta. Perfect. There was so much crab on it, I couldn’t even eat all of it!! Bolognese was probably the best I’ve had as well. Service was pretty good, no complaints.
Vacationing and wanted to dine al fresco and enjoy the beautiful weather service was fantastic our waiter was very attentive and the food was very good!!!
Was on vacation and it was AMAZING! Fabrizio was wonderful and can not wait to return!
Love this place. Always outstanding food. Took a little bit to get a server to our table but other than that this place was great.
WOW!!!! The service to the food is phenomenal! I ordered the caesar salad to begin & it was quite large (definitely could be shared!) and then ordered the famous truffle pasta tossed in the cheese bowl.... I must say it was AMAZING & worth all the money!!
Very charming place. Delicious pastas. The mussels were exceptional, perfect!
Very popular place. Highly recommend making reservations. Seating is tight. Service was excellent. It's located in the heart of Beverly Hills. You're surrounded by a lot of nice cars. Some revving their engines or accelerating real fast to show off but aside from that, it's great. Food is excellent. Public parking is available across the street. It appears valet is available after 6pm.
Great Italian food and great scenery. We saw multiple celebrities while enjoying our meal on the patio. Service was excellent from our Italian waiter. We will definitely be making a trip back here again.
Table available on time. Wait staff very good. Food was a little off tonight. I have been there before and recall food being better. Several dishes arrived lukewarm. ..they were sent back to kitchen and warmed up. Will try again.
Loved the outside ambiance. Heaters made it feel cozy. Attentive service and delicious Pappardelle with meat sauce.
Delicious food and impeccable service!
hervorragendes essen, ausgezeichneter service
The food and service were excellent Best fried calamari I have had They didn’t remember it was my birthday but everything was good
The pasta with black truffle was spectacular! We ordered it from the daily special, the best we have had. This is a never miss restaurant!
Leave room for the pana cotta and tiramisu!
My first time going there and we went on the patio. It’s not the best place to sit for conversations because the tables are really close together to each other but the food was good the service was great and I would definitely go back
Love the place. Alway a favorite place to eat. Expect to wait for a table without reservation.
Fun place in Beverly Hills with great Italian food and wine.
Great pasta and friendly wait staff. Fantastic for a long lunch.
Food was great, unfortunately the service was not. They cleared out our table while we were still working on our appetizers for the main course. They could have either asked if we were still eating or just left it at the table with the main course.
The food was decent and would have gotten 3 stars on its own but the service was horrendous. Our waitress was rude. We asked a question about the menu and she brushed us off and said to look at the menu. Just so unpleasant. On my way to the bathroom there were waiters and bus boys assuming the right of way. They weren’t even carrying anything and yet I had to way and move to the side each time one of them passed. No manners. They would have walked on me if I didn’t move out of the way. Save your time and money and go somewhere better- lots of places in that area.
Fantastic! Made us feel like regulars on our first visit. Extremely friendly detail oriented staff. A beautiful experience. Food was incredible. I had the Squash tortelloni which was outstanding. Fresh and flavorful.
Solid food, well prepared, and absolutely the most professional service in town — very little detail was expertly handled. A very solid choice for good food and outstanding service.
This restaurant has a deep history in Beverly Hills and definitely a restaurant to see and be seen. My biggest complaint about this restaurant is the uncomfortably close proximity that all of the tables are to one another. If you want to discuss anything sensitive with your dinner guests, count on the tables next to you to hear every word. That is if it isn't too loud, which it often is. The bar is also very small and cramped so if you are just interested in grabbing a cocktail and a bite at the bar, I would recommend going elsewhere. The food (especially pasta) are great and they accommodate gluten free diners.
We always try to make a stop when we are in Beverly Hills. True Italian, consistently fantastic food & wait staff exceptional! Great vibe, never disappoints.
Went on a Sunday night and had to wait 30 minutes to be seated after our timed reservation. Way too crowded.
