I went to this place many times and most of time I was happy with the food and service , the last two times my server were Spanish speaking and ( two different guys ) they were on the phone talking instead of helping customers , it took more than 30 minutes to take the order , it is very sad such a original Italian restaurant to have such a servers

I've never been disappointed by Il Fornaio in Beverly Hills. I like to go there every couple of months to try something new. They have a diversified menu; I really like their appetizers always made with top quality and fresh ingredients: I would recommend their bruschettas, clamaretti fritti, and prosciutto with melon. They also have delicious soups full of flavors (usually in the specials). My favorite pasta dishes: tagliatelle alla bolognese and pennoni alla vodka.
Great place to go to when shopping on beverly drive!

I took the advice of a previous posting and had a special business lunch at Il Fornaio in their private room. Excellent! The food was authentic and absolutely delicious (it seems that everyone who works there - including the chef is from Italy) and the service was great. Rudy was a quick server and made my guests feel well taken care of.
There was also an event person that helped me plan everything. Best part - no extra fees for any of it! (Which is very hard to find in that area!) The prices for the menus were also very reasonable.
Great time - we'll be booking an anniversary party there soon. One piece of advice - book the private room early. I had to try 3 dates before I finally got one that wasn't booked yet!

We had a birthday party there in their private room. I hadn't even know that there was a private room (and I've eaten there several times!). It's tucked away in the back and it was just perfect for the 25 of us. They had an event coordinator that helped us plan all the details (choosing the menu, etc) and everything just went perfectly. The service was wonderful (Carla was very attentive and friendly) and the food delicious (authentic, so tastey, GREAT pasta). The price of our set-menu was completely reasonable since it was in Beverly Hills, there was no charge for use of the room and the food was excellent. And there was plenty of their home-made bread and some excellent wine. All of this - and our own room - you can imagine why we had such a great time! Everyone from our party is now asking when they get to celebrate their birthday there! We're pleasing everyone by having our holiday party there next year.

Based on all the places I have tried, this is the best Italian food in Beverly Hills. The service is always spot on and, the food is made perfectly. The breads are to die for and the prices are very respectable. I love this place and try to go whenever in town.

The wait is everlong, so definately call ahead. The specials are always beguiling. Pasta is their forte. Ravioli with foie gras is creative and tasty but the portion is teeny. Their three cheese sauce with prosciutto on rigantoni is incredible. Their olive oil is imported and addictive, they also bake their own bread. The place steadily crowded and it can be a bit cramped if you are seated elbow to elbow, but all in all, the Beverly Hills branch impressed me more than the Pasadena one.

I first ate here in San Jose, then visited the local site. SAME GREAT food!!! I visited the restaurant 4 out of 5 weeknights. I had the lamb chops, 3 of those 4, which were the BEST I have ever tasted.
Their menu changes a few items, which keeps it fresh and exciting. On my 3rd visit, the waiter suggested the lamb chops as exceptional - I said ""I KNOW, I will have them again!"" The bread basket keeps all us bread-o-holics in heaven. Being a balsamic vinegar obsessive, the oil and vinegar served with it - makes is all that much special!!
