It was full due to the quality food and service, no doubt. Had a reservation and they graciously seated us outside under the heaters (cool night) since it was noisy inside and very warm. The salmon was outstanding and the Wente Pinot Noir delicious. Service was five star. Bellisimo.

A gem in Beverly Hills. The service is professional and friendly. The food is authenitc and delicious. The squid ink risotto is out of this world! There is valet parking as well as a city lot less than two blocks south of the restaurant.

The quality of the food was very good. Best lamb chops we've had in a very long time. My only complaint is that when I made the reservation, I stated this was a birthday celebration, and neither the host nor the server ever acknowledged this or did anything special. That was very disappointing.

We almost always go to Italian restaurants when we eat out. The food and service at Paradisio is much better than many restaurants in Beverly Hills and West Hollywood that are more frequented. Those people do not know what they are missing! This is superior to most of those restaurants. You will not be disappointed.

This is a very good restaurant, serving well-prepared Italian food at attractive prices. However, in one regard Piccolo Paradiso stands out: its pasta. While clearly Italian cuisine is more than just noodles, this restaurant's pasta dishes are simply superb. Make sure you include at least one in your ordering.

The restaurant AC was not working and it was very hot and humid inside the restaurant. My guests and I were very unhappy. Although the food and service were good, we just could not enjoy it. Worst of all, the staff and management did not even bother to apologize or make up for the inconvenience.

If we decide to go back, we will call first to make sure that their climate control system is working!

The Drago family restaurants are always dependable for authentic cuisine, prepared with fine ingredients and culinary skill. The parpadelle with cinghiale is heavenly. Reasonable prices for this quality and reasonable wine prices. There is a difference between a rack of veal and a veal chop. I ordered the rack of veal, expecting a rack of little chops, but was served a large veal chop. It was very good, but the menu needs a correction. Service is attentive enough, but a few times the waiter was not there when needed. Very nice staff.

Terrific quaint neighborhood restaurant for celebrity sightings and people watching. An older crowd dines at Piccolo. The seafood lobster/crab pasta with light tomato sauce and Piccolo salad are my favorite choices. The house Chianti and cappuccino are always part of my dining experience. Reservations are essential.

My wife and I dined at Piccolo Paradiso on Saturday. It was an outstanding experience. From the hostess calling us to tell us about the corner inside table she was holding for us, to the excellent recommendations made by our server, to the truly excellent meal and wine, we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I highly recommend Piccolo Paradiso and I look forward to a return visit soon.

I had been to Piccolo Paradiso several times for business lunches. So when my father-in-law -- who favors Italian cuisine and is partial to a more traditional, elegant ambiance -- was visiting from the east coast this week, I thought I would try it for dinner along with my wife and daughter. My wife had the risotto (noted on the menu as an homage to the chef's mom, I believe) and her dad had the veal chop. I had a very simple pasta special and my daughter had spaghetti. We sampled each other's plates and a good portion of mealtime was spent in friendly debate over whose plate was more delectable!? Wine and dessert were great -- but the entrees were remarkable. Everyone from the host to bar and waitstaff were very friendly and accommodating in a family-run-restaurant-feel. Parking was easy (valet or street). The dinning room is elegant but subtle, and we all recognized and appreciated a few decorative still photos from Italian films. When the check arrived, I quickly snatched it up (as any self-respecting son-in-law should), but prepared myself to repress the need to wince. Surprisingly, I felt very satisfied with the value of the meal, which is a less common occurrence when I find myself dining out in a group. We ended the night w/ an unapologetic touristy drive up Rodeo Drive just blocks away. It was all a big hit. I became the recipient of instant restaurant cred in my father-in-law's eyes. It was easily his favorite meal of the trip.

Restaurant was great. Very busy at 7:00, get reservations. The night was hot and humid and the air-conditioning was not up to it but any other day it probably is fine. I had the lobster and crab pasta and it was delicious, just a little spicy-great. Our friend had the branzino which was wonderful as well. We had a wine that we all liked, Montefalco. Service was very nice and friendly. We were able to have a great meal AND conversation.
