About Il Fornaio - Beverly Hills

Il Fornaio means "the Baker" in Italian. This award-winning restaurant offers an authentic and unique Italian dining experience. Specialties include wood-fired rotisserie and grilled meats, poultry and game; housemade pastas; pizzas from an oak wood burning oven; fresh salads and housemade soups; a wide variety of desserts; and fresh baked bread made daily from scratch.

The restaurant was terrible. On Christmas night when we sat down we were told that almost half of the dishes on the menu were sold out. It was too late to find another restaurant on Christmas night. The manager never came over to apologize and nothing was done to address the issue even after we complained.

We made a reservation in advance but the host looked annoyed we had a little toddler with us. We had to wait for our table for 15 minutes. Which is fine, but they kept accepting walk-ins at the same time... A group of four next to us who walked in without a reservation and got a table in the middle of the restaurant after a 15 minuten wait . When our table was finally ready it turned out to be a makeshift table right next to the door. Which was more open than closed because of the busy night. We had to keep our coats on because it was freezing. A few groups who who were appointed the tables next to us walked out of the restaurant because of the cold. Service was very slow, it was Christmas night and they didn’t seem to have it under control. We have been coming to this restaurant for more than twenty years but this was the worst experience so far. Shoving in your Christmas dinner asap with your coat on...

Came here on Christmas day with a reservation, their limited menu at 3:45 PM was out of most items and I ordered the tortellini not my first choice, and they were cold on the inside, very disappointing. The server was great and accommodating.

Very disappointing. This reservation was made 3 weeks in advance for Christmas Day for 7 people. Instead of being seated in the back dining area, we were crammed near the entrance in a very inconvenient space, as if we arrived off the street without a reservation. With the exception of one, most of the waiters were rude and rushed. We had to request drinks and other services several times before served. We are not hard to please, but this was unacceptable.

Mediocre Food. A Caesar Salad that was totally unrelated to the original.....nothing more than some lettuce with shaved cheese on top. Branzino was tasteless and overcooked. Ravioli was satisfactory. The best part of the meal was the Cappuccino. Service was erratic and phony Italian.

Always Good food just have a consistent issue with the size of the kids meals and the fact that there is no protein option for the kids this is a very kid friendly heavily trafficked by kids and families they need to either lower the price of the kids meals or raise it up a little bit and offer a lot more food and provide protein option

I was disappointed with my time at Il Fornaio. The food was delicious, the service was good. The busboy was exceptional - our water glasses were filled all during our meal. I had made the reservation in order to celebrate my daughter-in-law's birthday. I mentioned it to the person confirming my reservation and she even asked the birthday person's name and told me they would be given a birthday dessert. The waiter was not aware of the birthday celebration AND when I told him he came back to the table with a small dish of ice cream with a candle in it. One of my guests were still eating dinner. He never asked if we wanted dessert, never offered a dessert menu. I was disappointed with my time at Il Flornaio.

Thanksgiving Day was not normal for Il Fornaio because it was ultra crowded and noisy. My traditional turkey dinner was very tasty and perfectly cooked but a little cold when it arrived. But the atmosphere was brimming with the excitement of family and friends getting together and having a good meal. I will do it again next year!!
