Guests dining in Beverly Hills enjoy sitting outside and Via Alloro is the place for them. This is the first restaurant in the area to offer more than 100 patio seats, which wrap around the building so you can see and be seen! Guests at Giacomino’s and Tanino’s restaurants include actors, actresses, politicians, sports stars, business people, neighbors and tourists…they have so many regular guests and everyone is treated like family! Outside seating at Via Alloro has a different atmosphere in each area too and inside there are 34 seats with an additional 20 seats in the lounge. Speaking about the lounge, from 7 flat screen TVs guests will be able to watch sports all the time from basketball, baseball, ice hockey, American and European Football. You will also be able to eat at the bar for lunch and dinner too.

Everything was as good as always except my

Dover Sole. It was cooked too long. I had Dover Sole a couple of weeks ago at Panzanella, another Drago restaurant and it was perfect! Tanino needs to be in the kitchen more.

Great space with lots of outdoor space. Attentive service. A little pricey, but worth it for a special lunch with a friend, or a business lunch, or just want great food.

My wife and I love Via Alloro. The food is great. It's always delicious - I always order the pasta and absolutely love all their sauces and made on premise pasta. The owner takes a lot of pride and will often greet you and ask how you are doing. This is a fun and nice atmosphere and a great place to spend your evening.

We ate outside and had a great table for people watching on a beautiful sunny day! We ate the Gamberi/Calamari salads, and shared a mushroom pizza which were all delicious! A perfect place to dine outside and enjoy a meal!

This is a great place to people watch, especially outside on the patio, I enjoyed seeing all the pretty cars drive-by. They provided me with plenty of complementary bread, I had to ask for it each time but they kept bringing it. They’re pretty good about the refills, they kept my iced tea glass full. Food was fine, it’s pretty high class. I’ll be coming back... I like the high class atmosphere. Best iced tea in Los Angeles. Please never change it!

The food was very good. It can be challenging to find authentic Italian food, and they do a great job. The restaurant was very busy, which I am very happy for, but the service lacked due to that. The noise level was high, but we still had a nice evening. We will return again, as the food was excellent.

We had a most delicious experience. We started with Braziola with shaved Parmesan &arugula. The pasta was perfectly cooked in a simple garlic and butter mixture. The salmon was crunchy on the out upside and delicately soft on the interior. Served with chopped tomatoes and on a bed of wilted spinach.The truffle mushroom soup was divine. We loved the service food and details. A wonderful meal.

Via Alloro may be our new FAVORITE restaurant near our home. The valet parkng is super easy, we were greeted by smiles and lots of Italian hellos, the food was fabulous and the servers were most attentive. A great evening!

The food and service were great, and the ambiance good...except we were under a speaker, so even dining outside it was hard to hear, especially next to a large family party with several small children screaming their lungs out. Not the restaurant’s fault, but it sure makes you wonder what the parents were thinking. Please, parents, if your kids aren’t “Restauraunt friendly” leave them home or teach them to be courteous when out in public.

We were celebrating the return to LA of our favorite cousin ... and dinner at Via Alloro turned out to be the perfect venue. There was no wait for drinks or dinner ... and the food was outstanding, especially the fresh corn raviolis and proscuitto and melon. We really enjoyed it!

I went to the Via Alloro two days in a row, and frankly I could write two different reviews of the restaurant.
Friday for lunch I went there with two friends. We were given a large quiet table that I had asked for, so we were able to sit with social distancing in mind. Champaign arrived perfectly chilled, Truffle Pizza was perfect, salads and paste were as I remembered them. The fine General Manager Josepe Molice greeted us, and even the proprietor Giacamino Drago stopped by our table. Restaurant was very busy, but we had a very enjoyable lunch.
The lunch on Friday was so great that I would have rated the restaurant as perfect.
In fact I took a friend there the next day, on Saturday, for lunch. The restaurant was empty. We were give a small table for two. I asked if we could have a larger table, hostess declined my request saying that all the large tables were reserved! The restaurant remained empty throughout our lunch. By the time we left, only one of the many larger tables was occupied. Eventhough the food and the drinks were equally good, we did not enjoy our meal, we kept talking about the foolishness of the hostess for declining giving us a better table in the empty restaurant! This time the best I could do was to give the restaurant a mediocre grade. So my final rating of 4 star is the average of these two visits!!
