We had a mediocre meal here. We started with the sautéed calamari, which really was calamari in a tomato sauce, not what we thought we were ordering, despite asking the bartender to describe it. The Sea bass special was overcooked, and the veal lasagna was just okay, though quite large. The Casanova di Neri Sangiovese was good. Service was so-so.... More

This place has a great breakfast - tasty and reasonably priced. This is where I go to met people on the city side of LA. Never rushed to get out and always good. So dependable that now it's my go-to place for lunch meetings as well. It never fails...

This one of my go to spots, when out to dinner with my best friend. They always have a great fresh fish dish with braised kale or other fresh veggies. Very good wine list too. Fun for people watching if your lucky enough to get an outdoor table!

We visit Porta Via often and have had consistently great experiences over the course of many years. The restaurant is conveniently located in Beverly Hills with easy parking in a lot directly across the street. If you are going for lunch, I highly recommend trying the daily soup. It is always dairy free, vegan, and very tasty. You should also... More

There is a reason most of the tables were empty. Extremely poor extra slow service. In fact a child of about 8 years old escorted us to our table. & was going to take our drink order. Obviously, they ignore child labor laws. Ordered the penne bolegnese it was tasteless. They forgot the the basil, oregano & garlic. They need... More

Loved the food! They not only make Italian good, but chicken, steaks and burgers. Pretty to sit outside too!

Outdoor table was charming on a quiet Saturday morning in Beverly Hills. We had bloody marys/mimosas and breakfast, and everyone was happy with their food. I really enjoyed the Huevos Rancheros. Service was excellent.

We had dinner on a Saturday evening, and the restaurant was not particularly busy. We ordered 2 appetizers, 2 main courses, and a bottle of wine. Only one appetizer showed up, and we had to ask twice for an ice bucket for the wine. After a while we asked again for the second appetizer, but instead we received the 2... More

In heart of Beverly Hills. Active sidewalk dining. Good food. Nice service and people. A little slow.

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.
