We enjoyed a lunch with some nice prosecco while sitting outside. The food, we ordered ‘specials of the day’, was excellent, so the atmosphere. Service was good and friendly. Perfect place for a comfortable, good lunch, you forget you’re in busy Beverly Hills

today you can still feel its small town origins, even
though it has become a major tourist attraction and
business center for the entertainment industry. This
town lives up to its reputation as an area full of
designer retail stores and residential streets lined
with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial

Description
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.
