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!!!

I liked how accommodating the chef was. He made substitutions cheerfully. The food was very good. The wait staff was attentive without being overbearing. It is a small intimate setting. I plan to visit again tomorrow night.

Excellent meal and excellent service! Really the highlight of my short trip to Beverly Hills. I thought prices were a tad high but I guess that is the normal for the area.

Strange choices of spices on two main courses: Oso Buco which had a strong celery taste and which I sent back and Saltimbocca which was inundated with Thyme for some reason. Waited quite a while for a table and felt very crowded.

Piccolo Paradiso is one of my favorite restaurants. General Manager Senior Fabrizio Fantella is perhaps the best General Manager in Beverly Hills. Therefore on Sunday evening, which is his off evening I was not sure how the service would be! But much to my surprise the service was almost as good as when Fabrizio was at the hem. The baked artichoke appetizer was fine, and the mushroom filled gnocchi was superb.

Tables on top of one another, two tables next to us (almost no space between the tables) who arrived after us were served and gone before we got our dinner. Hot temperature in the restaurant, poor service, really didn't like my entrée. I had eaten there last year when there was more table room and service / food was better. Same for their sister restaurant on the other side of town, too crowded, high prices, and poor service. I don't mind paying a lot for a good meal but the ambiance and food quality- at least the other night- has changed.
