This neighborhood darling is a citywide favorite, so if dining indoors, reservations are strongly recommended. The sunny outdoor terrace is the kind of destination where jubilant crowds of people flock to, largely to be seen sipping Montepulciano at one of the tightly spaced tables. Then again, some are surely here because it offers great value for Beverly Hills. The menu is large and aims to have something for everyone—from the wide range of carpaccio with toppings to pleasing bowls of homemade fettucine Bolognese. Or, sample a bit of everything with the six-course chef's tasting menu.
Its longevity and status as a flagship of the Drago family empire is thanks to the unwavering quality of genuine and delicious Italian cooking through the years.
