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. This place was really busy, even with our 8pm reservation we stil had to wait close to 15 minutes for our table. Menu offerings... More

Love the bread, sitting at the counter watching the cooks cooking. The food is excellent, the location, near a public lot, ideal.

The food was ok not great. The big problem was the fact that there were TWO hairs in our food. One was in my iced tea and the other was in my daughter's pasta. The waiter never offered to comp our meal or any portion of our meal. It was so disgusting and we will never go back. The hairs... More

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

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.
