Gourmet Magazine calls il Pastaio "a taste of heaven," and says "the cooks in il Pastaio's kitchen have angel's hands". Los Angeles Magazine critics choice ranked it "one of the top ten new restaurants". It's no wonder this friendly neighborhood trattoria has been a favorite meeting place, satisfying locals and visiting customers with its mouthwatering pasta since opening in 1994.

Disappointing. I love this restaurant. My family wanted to go to a different restaurant for my mom’s 80th and I insisted on this. Everyone was very upset after. Horrible service. As an example, each time items were forgotten, there was no apology and no follow through to bring them out. :-(

We were a party of Two who dined here on a Saturday Night. The Wine list was quite extensive. I ordered a Valpolicella wine which was smooth and not too dry. We had the Calamari which was very tender and we both loved the Sauce. The Minestrone was very fresh and very tasty. I had the Bolognese which was out of this world and my friend had the Pasta with the Meatballs which I liked but he did not seem crazy over. The Desert was a Apple Tart with Carmel sauce. Delicious. Being in Beverly Hills of course the Restaurant was not inexpensive but considering the quality it was a nice meal out. Had we skipped the wine , the bill would have been much lower but we enjoyed this restaurant & our night out very much.

Tables there are so close to each other, a couple was siting next to us and spilled wine and it was all over my coat! Red wine. I’m so upset of that accident cause especially dry cleaning service didn’t guarantee that they will help. And it wasn’t even my fault.

We went for lunch, our food was great. Our waiter was not attentive at all. He didn't make us feel welcome or provide us with great service, specially if I am spending $100 for two of us.

The staff could not have been kinder and more patient with my 87 yr old mom and 89 yr old dad. They joined in and wished my mom a HBD which meant a lot to all of us.
Thank you for a perfect experience on a special day.

There's a reason Il Pastaio is always packed. Delicious pastas and salads, great crowd, fairly reasonably priced, always a good time. If you've never been to Beverly Hills and are visiting for 3 hours you should come here, it will give you a good taste of the area.

I had decided to book this Italian for our last night in LA as a treat for our honeymoon. The food was not as expected once arrived we were really disappointed. The sirloin steak was fatty meat and didn’t taste of anything which came on a bed of leaves and not potatoes as described. This came with more salad and no vegetables. The chicken Milanese was dry and didn’t have any taste either. Small portion of veg and two potatoes was not worthy of the heavy price we had to pay. Service was good but overall was not to a good standard of food.

Everything was fantastic but for one older, bald waiter who had a disgraceful attitude towards us. This was remedied when we asked for a new waiter. He was coming sisterly rude to all of his tables which is find not only disappointing but inconsistent with the rest of the staff who all seemed lovely.
