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!

Food was amazing - it always is but what really put it over the top was our waiter Ivan and the chef coming over to chat. Ivan was the best, great with recommendations, super tentative, and good convo.

When we got there, were seated immediately due to having a reservation and I appreciated that. We were seated at a table near the entrance. I liked the grass wall but we were in a corner between the wall & a heated lamp so eh. It took forever for our waiter to come & we received bread only about 2 min before our waiter came to take our drink orders. It took about another 15-20 min for him to come. We ordered our food & drinks at the same time bc it took so long for the waiter to come at all. We received our food another 20 min after we got our drinks. The food was served hot and fresh but I was not overly impressed. Might return but next time I know how slow service is.

Horrible service. Over cooked grilled chicken. The pizza was undercooked. The freshness of produce was a 1 out of ten. Not worth it at all.

Everything mediocre and pricy! Would not go back at those prices. Don’t these restaurants realize we are in a global pandemic with millions out of work? Dumb

Sorry to say how bad the food was. I didn’t know you could ruin pasta, but they did. Tons of thick sauce that was barely blolgnese. No flavor. Caesar salad was fair.

But — they created a lovely outdoor restaurant with grass walls and candlelight. Very pleasant ambiance.

Had a good experience overall. Drinks and food was nice, and the service was good also. The only one issue I ran into was how the waiter forgot to set the table a little before our food came out. Bread was slow and I had to request a few things more than once but it was a very busy night so I can understand why this would happen. The receptionist had me waiting outside while she would set multiple people down, and when she was free, she forgot to come and grab us a table. I had to walk in and remind her that we were still waiting. Otherwise, the food and service was good.

First time in a long while, restaurant is still as good as ever. Food was great, service was professional, seating was immediate. To me, the restaurant is more genuine Italian and true-to-form than most of the better restaurants in Los Angeles. My only wish is that the the view in the outdoor seating area wasn't completely blocked off by a tall green wall of ivy.

Kudos to Il Fornaio Beverly Hills for adapting so well to the pandemic. Our meal was delicious and well-prepared. The seating made me feel safe and comfortable, much more so than other places. I never felt rushed and my server was precise and attentive. In short, I had an experience that surpassed my expectations. Thank you.
