Except for the fact that my date never showed up :( it was otherwise a great experience!
I had a nice glass of Chianti, tried their terrific bread and ordered a pizza to go. Service was great, attentive and I'd definitely go there again, preferably with a date that would actually show up. Actually, I'd go there again solo :)

The restaurant did an amazing job to create an European-like outdoor areas. The outdoors would've definitely been a preferred seating choice even if we could sit inside. All tables were separated by clear partitions that we felt safe.
I was convinced by our friendly knowledgeable server to order the special scampi pasta, and it was so delicious. The prawns were humongous and flavorful! My husband was extremely happy with his savory lasagna as well. And to top it off, their service was fantastic.
We highly recommend this restaurant.

I live close by and I really love going to Il Fornaio for lunch. I recently moved to Beverly Hills. Everything is closed to indoor dining and just about everything else. Eating on the street is not appealing to me. Gas exhaust and dirt around my food is not acceptable to me. So here, at If Fornaio, the outdoor dining is closed by a beautiful wooden stained wall/divider and they have the plexiglass, safe separation, and lively trees and even lights in the evening. This makes the ambiance much better than many other places. It’s certainly not my favorite thing to be able to see everyone else etc when I dine, which is caused by these rules we are stuck with right now, so I didn’t give 5 stars. But this is the best place I have found so far.
The food is good especially the pasta and the fish entrees. Stop next door at Laterie for the original macoron.

It was so nice to dine out again and Il Fornaio did not disappoint! Excellent food from Caesar salad to chicken piccata, pizza and cannoli. Everything fresh, hot and beautifully prepared. Comfy outdoor seating and ambiance well insulated from street traffic. It was a week night so not overly packed. We’ll definitely be back!

The covid ambiance was great. Set up individual booths outside with glass in between. The price of the food is very reasonable and the food was good (not bad but nothing special).

As always the food was beautifully prepared and delicious. Il Fornaio Beverly Hills is one of my favorite restaurants. They’ve done a great job setting up a safe place to dine during the Covid pandemic. Sitting outside made me feel like I was in Italy. Perfection.

The bolognese was great. The margarita pizza could have been better.

The service is not that great. Unfriendly and not attentive servers.

Birthday dinner during pandemic. The restaurant was seating outside and had used a beautiful trellis hedge to block view of traffic. There was still noise from traffic but only occasionally distracting. Food was great. Service was great. If you want butter for bread you must ask, same with salt. Very accommodating too. Price is reasonable.

I have cancer and it was my first time dinning out. My husband and I chose Il Fornaio because #1 we love this place, but most of all we felt safe there. I have to be uber careful these days and the environment and staff were just wonderful!
We were so happy to see a restaurant that is so respectful to our current conditions our world, and making it work!!
Thank you Il Fornaio, we will be back!
