Food and service exceptional
Wonderful little local restaurant with great food, great service and a lovely ambience. It will be our new go-to spot for now on. So glad we found it.
Excellent food since the day they opened - and superlative service!
Everything on the menu seemed sumptuous! The 4 of us throughly enjoyed our meal. Excellent food.
Fabulous food! Prices a little high. Very close quarters.
Noises animated. Great food and very busy. Food is always good and staff like old friends.
Love the Food, atmosphere and the finest Staff! Thanks to Marco for always making our evening special!!!
We are long time returning customers, having frequented this restaurant regularly. We were disappointed at how service and the quality of the food has declined.
We made a reservation through Open Table for an outside table, which was confirmed. Upon arrival, we were told by a gentleman that such table is not available and that they don't even work with Open Table. When we asked to speak to the manager, the gentleman stated that he was the manager, which was not the case, as he did not solve our problem and did not even consider our suggestion to split a table for four, which was only occupied by two. Finally, the real manager showed up and took our suggestion. The same gentleman ended up being our server who was cold, abrupt and not attentive.
My husband ordered branzino, which was clearly not fresh. It was supposed to be grilled, but it was boiled - not even broiled. We ordered an Amarone wine, which was one of the best they had by the glass, but it was one the lowest quality wines we have tasted.
We tipped the establishment appropriately but we will never go back.
Food is delicious. Everyone was happy.
The food and service at Piccolo Paradiso is always wonderful!
Had a special bday for my husband! Food was great, service was wonderful. Prices are not cheap but reasonable for a special occasion!
Really felt welcomed and treated well even though we are not Hollywood elite!
Wonderful dessert menu! Keep it, please! So sad elsewhere.
Sensational branzino, osso buco, and pasta vongole; always wonderful, personable service.
The pasta was excellent. Service was attentive. Much easier to make a reservation than at sister restaurant Il Pastaio.
Locale carino, con cucina buona, materie
Prime interessanti, servizio molto disponibili, magari troppo portato a servire acqua in bottiglia
Hidden gem. I love it here. Always the best food and you can hear your dinner dates talk
Although it was a busy Sunday we were greeted promptly. The wait staff was courteous, well informed and the courses were served in a timely manner. Food was delicious. All salad components were fresh and dressed properly. All the pasta was house-made. My pappardelle was able to stand up to the wild boar ragu, and yet was still somehow delicate. Perfect! I did indicate in making the reservation that it was a birthday celebration, and the lemon meringue pie came on a plate with "Happy Birthday" written in chocolate on the border. A small touch, and appreciated. Our waiter was nice enough to take two photos of our party.
It wasn't noisy because we sat outside. Food was great, service good, ambiance good, etc. etc. Always made to feel welcome. The waiter however had a strange attitude. Like perhaps he doesn't like his job?
I don't know.....but he was quite unfriendly. That was the only downer in an otherwise delightful evening.
Great restaurant! Espetacular good and staff. Real Italian restaurant.
we have eaten here many times over the years and have never been disappointed ,
Excellent service, and wonderful food with delicate sauces. The atmosphere is casual with a business vibe, at least at lunch. Worth visiting amid a number of good, local Italian restaurants in Beverly Hills.
Love the food and service here. Have been many times, and will always go back.
This was our first time at Piccolo Paradiso and we will be back . Everything was wonderful and the staff were eceptional . Luka was our server and he was fantastic. We ordered Calamari for a appetizer and it was by far the best we have ever had. The only thing if I were to make a complaint was the Air conditioning was not the best, but it was a very warm evening.
Picolo Paradiso is a great "neighborhood restaurant". It is one of the outstanding Drago restaurants. the service is good and the food is always consistently very good.
My biggest complaint is it is just too loud
I was happy that we could eat in the back of the restaurant in a small area with a table for 4.
Food is outstanding! Marco our server is fantastic and been there a while. Wished they had a bit more secluded or booths seating very open and loud if it’s busy.
Lovely restaurant. Could have had some carbs with that delicious strol steak! Pleanty of food though. Lovely joint. Liked it lots.
Locale carino, personale estremamente squisito, gentile e professionale. Perché due stelle allora perché dicono cucina italiana ma in realtà di italiano c’è il proprietario, i camerieri e le voci nel menù ma la cucina non è assolutamente italiana ma una scarsa rivisitazione. Dai carciofi alla romana dov’è l’unica cosa che li accomuna è che sono entrambi fatti con i carciofi alla pasta all’antica con la salsa Tobasco. Da evitare
The children at the next table were horrible. Totally out of control. Their parents made no effort to control them. The food was excellent but the children ruined the meal
Excellent pasta dishes! Our favorite Piccolo salad!
A bit disappointing. Food was ok but nothing special. Pasta was not great. Sauce was very bland. Service only fair.
Everything was just OK. .
i absolutely love this neighborhood gem and i wish i could eat there more often.
Its understated and over-performs. Staff are just incredible, as is the food. Its a definite go back to restaurant.
Very good service...attentive but not overbearing. Excellent calamari, not heavily breaded. Linguine with clams was pretty good, al dente with wonderfully cooked garlic (slivers edible, not bitter). Fresh fig salad with fennel and Gorgonzola was inventive and a treat.
Friendly waitstaff....outstanding food!!!!
