There are few restaurants that remind me of the wonderful cooking I tasted in Italy . This is one of them. The service is outstanding. The food authentic and delicious. The variety of the menu is spectacular. I highly recommend the carpaccio and the branzino but no matter what you order you will not be disappointed. The people that work there are the best. They welcome you like family. Enjoy!!

We've been here several times before and have always had a delicious, satisfying meal. Our waiter was so helpful -- he let us know that we could get half orders of the pastas and the salads -- and we will definitely be coming back. The food is very fresh and delicious, and the restaurant is quiet (but not too quiet) enough to have good conversation.

We made a reservation here because they were rated the #1 restaurant in Beverly Hills by TripAdvisor. Everything we ate was delicious. Our server Marco was wonderful and knew just what to recommend.

Food was ok- salads were very good but pasta was a little tough and not hot enough. I just can’t reconcile the gourmet prices with the good but not much better food.

Wow! We had an amazing fine dining experience - everything from the food to our server’s wine recommendation was on point and it was so nice to be able to sit outside and still be able to speak normally instead of shout over the ambient noise.

Giacomino delivers, once again. Very authentic Italian, complete with aloof, at times indifferent waiters....the food is incredible, and if you forget from where you just came (BH out-of-doors), you could swear you're in a small trattoria in Italy.

I love this restaurant for the delicious food and the great service. They always greet you like a long lost relative. The people who work there have been there forever and treat their patrons like they’re really important to them. The food is prepared just the way you ask for it. No request is too much trouble. I love it there.

My main problem with this restaurant is the seating. If you go, I'd suggest you request seating that does not involve the long bench to the left of the restaurant. It extends the entire wall, and tables are crammed right next to one-another. After 6 hours on American Airlines I was hoping for a little leg room.
Impossible to have a private conversation, there was less than a foot between tables. Our neighbors were friendly, however, and we discussed our meals.
I had the pasta with frutti di Mari (seafood), which was good but quite spicy.

I'd strongly suggest that the owners remove at least one table on that wall, and give their diners a little privacy.

Picolo Paradiso was a wonderful find for us. My Aunt lives very close in Beverly Hills and had never been there. She was impressed and will definitely go back. The service was outstanding and attentive. The food was marvelous. The pasta dishes my wife and I had were delicate and rich altogether. We both enjoyed our entrees. My Aunt had the veal ravioli which was excellent. The quarters are tight but cozy. It is a little loud but very charming. I would definitely go back and can give this restaurant a very high rating.
