About Il Fornaio - Beverly Hills

Step inside Il Fornaio and take a culinary journey through Italy. Early mornings bring rustic, crisp crusted bread hot from the oven accompanied by the scent of fresh brewed espresso. During lunch and dinner hours, pastas and flavorful sauces simmer while meats and vegetables roast over hot coals. Bottles of wine from small, regional wineries are uncorked to complement the dishes, which have been crafted in the custom of Italy's chefs, bakers and homemakers. 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. Winner of the Wine Spectator Award of Excellence 2007.

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

We have been dining at the Il Fornaio in Beverly Hills for many years now. The food is always delicious and the newest addition to the managerial staff, Marco (who has worked there for years), always makes us feel welcome.

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!!

Neighborhood gem. Love their seasonal menu, which changes every month, representing original recipes from different regions in Italy. In my experience over several years, they have always offered friendly and attentive service. Looking forward to going back soon.

Convenient location in Beverly Hills. Miss the bread sticks of years ago, but the current sour dough and herbed? bread were good . Caesar salad was fairly good. Pasta dishes were satisfactory. Didn't care for pana cota with fruit. It's a fun place to watch the Beverly Hills crowd go by.
