Food is delicious. Everyone was happy.
The food and service at Piccolo Paradiso is always wonderful!
Had a special bday for my husband! Food was great, service was wonderful. Prices are not cheap but reasonable for a special occasion!
Really felt welcomed and treated well even though we are not Hollywood elite!
Wonderful dessert menu! Keep it, please! So sad elsewhere.
Sensational branzino, osso buco, and pasta vongole; always wonderful, personable service.
The pasta was excellent. Service was attentive. Much easier to make a reservation than at sister restaurant Il Pastaio.
Locale carino, con cucina buona, materie
Prime interessanti, servizio molto disponibili, magari troppo portato a servire acqua in bottiglia
Hidden gem. I love it here. Always the best food and you can hear your dinner dates talk
Although it was a busy Sunday we were greeted promptly. The wait staff was courteous, well informed and the courses were served in a timely manner. Food was delicious. All salad components were fresh and dressed properly. All the pasta was house-made. My pappardelle was able to stand up to the wild boar ragu, and yet was still somehow delicate. Perfect! I did indicate in making the reservation that it was a birthday celebration, and the lemon meringue pie came on a plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the border. A small touch, and appreciated. Our waiter was nice enough to take two photos of our party.
It wasn't noisy because we sat outside. Food was great, service good, ambiance good, etc. etc. Always made to feel welcome. The waiter however had a strange attitude. Like perhaps he doesn't like his job?
I don't know.....but he was quite unfriendly. That was the only downer in an otherwise delightful evening.
Great restaurant! Espetacular good and staff. Real Italian restaurant.
we have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed ,
Excellent service, and wonderful food with delicate sauces. The atmosphere is casual with a business vibe, at least at lunch. Worth visiting amid a number of good, local Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills.
Love the food and service here. Have been many times, and will always go back.
This was our first time at Piccolo Paradiso and we will be back . Everything was wonderful and the staff were eceptional . Luka was our server and he was fantastic. We ordered Calamari for a appetizer and it was by far the best we have ever had. The only thing if I were to make a complaint was the Air conditioning was not the best, but it was a very warm evening.
Picolo Paradiso is a great "neighborhood restaurant". It is one of the outstanding Drago restaurants. the service is good and the food is always consistently very good.
My biggest complaint is it is just too loud
I was happy that we could eat in the back of the restaurant in a small area with a table for 4.
Food is outstanding! Marco our server is fantastic and been there a while. Wished they had a bit more secluded or booths seating very open and loud if it’s busy.
Lovely restaurant. Could have had some carbs with that delicious strol steak! Pleanty of food though. Lovely joint. Liked it lots.
Locale carino, personale estremamente squisito, gentile e professionale. Perché due stelle allora perché dicono cucina italiana ma in realtà di italiano c’è il proprietario, i camerieri e le voci nel menù ma la cucina non è assolutamente italiana ma una scarsa rivisitazione. Dai carciofi alla romana dov’è l’unica cosa che li accomuna è che sono entrambi fatti con i carciofi alla pasta all’antica con la salsa Tobasco. Da evitare
The children at the next table were horrible. Totally out of control. Their parents made no effort to control them. The food was excellent but the children ruined the meal
Excellent pasta dishes! Our favorite Piccolo salad!
A bit disappointing. Food was ok but nothing special. Pasta was not great. Sauce was very bland. Service only fair.
Everything was just OK. .
i absolutely love this neighborhood gem and i wish i could eat there more often.
Its understated and over-performs. Staff are just incredible, as is the food. Its a definite go back to restaurant.
Very good service...attentive but not overbearing. Excellent calamari, not heavily breaded. Linguine with clams was pretty good, al dente with wonderfully cooked garlic (slivers edible, not bitter). Fresh fig salad with fennel and Gorgonzola was inventive and a treat.
Friendly waitstaff....outstanding food!!!!
This is the quintessential NYC neighborhood Italian restaurant, if there is such a thing, you go to on a regular basis. For milestone family events, business or because you and your gal pal are craving carbs. This is my favorite outside of NYC. Period. Food. Service. Space. Valet.
Very good authentic Italian restaurant. Feels and tastes like being back in Italy.
Specially good is the branzino, pasta with truffles and spaghetti vongole as well as the apple capriccio.
I've been going to Giacomino Drago's restaurants for many years, and they never disappoint. The food is authentic and creative, staff always are very helpful and attentive, wines are nicely paired and well-priced, and the atmosphere is fun and vibrant. Complimenti e grazie, Giacomino!!
Small and intimate BH Italian. The pasta was excellent and the bechamel sauce might be the best we ever had. The duck special was just ok. Our waiter was great.
I had the insulata Ai Fruitti di Mare which was wonderful. My husband had the Arrabbiatte pasta which was excellent. He had an great beer and I had the Monte Pulciano D’Abruzzo wine - wonderful and a little berry-ish. We finished up with both the Canoli alla Siciliana and the Affogato Al Caffe. What a wonderful end to the meal. Our waiter had a great sense of humor and helped us with our selections. We're making this our go-to place for Italian food.
This is my favorite "go to" restaurant here!! The food is good, the atmosphere is homey and inviting, and the staff are always pleasant and helpful, from the parking attendant to the servers. Start to finish it's a fine experience!!
My favorite Italian restaurant and the waiter is so awesome. Everything I get there is so good! I would def recommend going you will not be disappointed.
We found this restaurant to be crowded and noisy. Guests were crammed in and had to shout to be heard. We also felt rushed. Our meal came so fast after ordering that we questioned whether it was freshly prepared. The waiter really wasn't that interested. When he asked if our meals were good he didn't even bother waiting for a reply and walked away. Rushed or arrogant, either way it didnh't create a very good impression.
Finally the food. It was OK. Nothing wrong with it but nothing special either.
