Not unique to beverly Hills and not the best Italian in the area, but always a decent meal and a good spot for a European breakfast or a quick bite while on the run. Decor is classic with marble everywhere and probably the most kid friendly Italian restaurant in Beverly Hills...

Enjoyed a very pleasant impromptu lunch here.Called in off the street - no reservation- our table found with no delay.The restaurant was busy and buzzing which is always a good sign.Excellent food served with a real panache and not overbearing.Wine by the glass at sensible ( by Beverly Hills standards ) prices.Would rate this place highly.

I stopped here for a casual coffee whilst visiting Two Rodeo, and found the staff very friendly, the cakes attractive and nice, and the coffee very good. Worth a stop whilst in the area

This was a so-so dining experience. Should have been better considering the cost. I have an Il Fornaio at a shopping mall close to where I live and expected the same menu offerings and dining experience.

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.
