It all depends on what your after! For me its always getting a good ambiance with a genuine feeling that you've had a very good dinner, at a reasonable price and this ticked all the boxes for me. The place is fairly low key and not the top of the range eating establishment but that's not what I ever look... More

A salesperson in a store recommended this restaurant when we were (window) shopping along Rodeo Drive. The salads my wife and I both had were fresh and delicious. The restaurant has a gluten-free menu (important to my wife) and a great Italian vibe. And Zack, our server, was a gem!

Visited Beverly Hills around noon on a Sunday. Saw this restaurant at the corner of a street junction and decided to lunch there. Exceeded expectations. Pastas were delicious. Service staff was great, very friendly and helpful. Will definitely dine here again.

We had a very pleasant dinner at Il Fornaio . But the food was disappointing. The seafood pasta was drowned in a not terribly good sauce and the seafood was really mediocre. The veal scaloppini was good but over tenderized. I will try once more someday.

Really enjoyed the poached eggs and thick cut bacon but the bread with butter and jam is a highlight. Of course I can't that eating in an Italian restaurant no meal is complete without a latte! They do it right here.

Every respectable Italian restaurant must do two things well: Osso bucco and tiramisu. Two thumbs up for both at this place.

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.

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighbourhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and 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 center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
