Always good - Fabrizio is an awesome manager who understands hospitality and has set up a great place! Obviously having Drago food doesn't hurt!

Although the food was excellent our service unfortunately was not. Server was rude. Never came back to check on us, see if we wanted anything else. Saw him again when it was time to deliver the check to our table. When ordering he told us we needed to order our appetizer AND entree at the same time 'cause they're "busy". There were a few tables that were open nearby us, and no one sat in them for quite some time. Didn't appreciate his attitude. I would love to recommend to a friend, because food was great....but not sure if I could unless this waiter could be avoided.

One of the great neighborhood gems. Great food without pretentiousness. I highly recommend supporting this establishment during these difficult times. It’s a way of cooking you can’t get elsewhere. Truly reminds me of Italy.

For sophisticated diners, there is no better Italian restaurant, in all of LA than Piccolo Paradiso. It is not as overcrowded as the excellent IL Pastaio, not as spacious as the very good Via Alloro, and not as snobbish as eBaldi. It just is more enjoyable than all of them.

Yes it is owned by the imaginative Drago brothers that seem to have cornered the market on the fine Italian restaurants in LA. But there is something special about this one. It is both authentic and innovative. You have many choices in every category, from wonderful Pasti to fresh fish and varied deserts. Wine list has some hidden jewels in it, including great Amarone and even half bottles of Opus One.

Above all the service is impeccable. I consider Fabrizio Fantella as the best restaurant General Manager in Beverly Hills.

I frequented this restaurant for years before moving to Palm Springs 13 years ago. It was always a good experience until last night. My 97 year old Mother and I came in to meet a friend. The hostess hardly greeted us and when I saw our friend she said nothing and never even offered to escort us to our table. When we got to our table our friend asked the waiter if we could move our table and he said yes. The next thing we know the extremely rude and full of himself maitre d came to our table and aggressively reprimanded us for moving our table without permission and how we should never do this again. It totally ruined our evening and we were there to celebrate my Mother's 97th birthday. WE WILL NEVER AGAIN go to this restaurant. The food was good but not as great as I remember it and no matter what no one deserves to be treated this way. There was no point in me telling this over zealous jerk that the waiter had actually moved us and that was because my Mother was having difficulty with the other table. Hopefully, this will not fall on dead ears. DISGUSTING!!!
