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.

Was delicious, great service. Had the truffle pasta and the sea bass. Calamari also great. The best was the Barbera d'asti red wine by the glass, really loved it.

Great food and service as always. Love this place. Can’t go wrong no matter what you order but the T-bone for less than $40 is a must!

Spent Valentine's day here and had a wonderful mean. Started off with some red wine that we brought. Yes, there is a corkage fee. Split a couple of appetizers, with my favorite being the caprese, which was amazing with the large cut of tomatoes and cheeses. Also went with the asapargi, which was also very nice. For dinner we split the pasta made in the cheese wheel. We paid for it to be served tableside, which was a little disappointing since it was done behind us, and we didn't even know until the plates were being served to us. Had their Tiramisu for dessert which was great. Overall, great dining experience. Was happy we were seated outside of the main dining area and away from the bar and kitchen. Seemed to be alot going on in there, and being away from there let us enjoy over evening even more.

The place was so pretty specifically it was well designed for Valentines Day , but the service not so well. I didn’t ask for a Fotuchini , i wanted angel hair pasta with alferedo sauce , but he braught me Fotochini, and when i asked him to change it he had attitude!
Overall , the food was good.

The menu was great, so many options to choose from! The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly! Excellent wine choices as well! I went for my birthday with my boyfriend and it was so special! We sat outside and it was very windy when we went but we had the perfect spot and the heaters worked great!

We got seated for our reservation in a timely fashion and got a wonderful table outside. Our waiter was very sweet. The food was remarkable! We had the salad with eggplant and peppers, so good. The tortaloni with pumpkin was incredible. We didn’t have to wait long at all for our food. People watching was fun. We’ll be back! Thank you.

Was really looking forward to dining here for quite a while. I ordered the cacio e pepe that was supposed to be served in the cheese wheel. Mine was not. Other tables around me, however, were. The service was so bad and terribly unfriendly. Matteo was my waiter and it was just me, a table of one, and it was like I was bothering him. I knew exactly what I wanted and was a pretty easy quick service table. I was out in less than an hour. He seemed annoyed I didn’t order wine or an alcoholic beverage - I’m pregnant, so I can’t drink.... of course he turned “friendly” at the end when he wanted a tip. It really surprised me that there were beggars outside and the restaurant was allowing it. A woman literally went from table to table outside collecting bills and waiters were standing around watching. For a “high class” restaurant in Beverly Hills, this shocked me. Will not be returning or recommending.
