The lasagne is to die for. Make sure you bring your credit card. Small, crowded.

Found this place through a Groupon Deal. Well worth it! This is a tiny little restaurant located in Beverly Hills. Decor is a little dim so it is great for romantic dates! I brought a date here and we had wines to go with it. A glass of wine is roughly $9 - $10 on the lower end.

I ordered the cognac chicken and my date got one of the pastas. Both were good, especially the sauce. I would definitely come back.

The caprese and calzone were great here! The service is also fantastic here. Great homely ambience and date night spot.

Il Forno Caldo is located next to Allure Spa on "little" Santa Monica Blvd (aka S. Santa Monica Blvd). It is a cute little Italian joint. For the location, their prices are quite reasonable. Metered street parking. They do have small structures with metered parking off N. Roxbury Drive behind the Allure Spa.

For appetizer we had the clam and mussels. It was very good. The broth was so tasty I kept dipping my bread into it. For our entree we ordered the pasta with chicken/pink sauce and the pasta with salmon. Both were decent. There are better places in the area but the one advantage of this place is the price.

My main issue was that the service was too slow. Everything took FOREVER from getting our drink order in to getting the check (and everything in between). I felt like I kept having to flag someone down but there was nobody nearby to flag. The restaurant wasn't busy either.

3 stars - it wasn't bad, it wasn't great.

Wines by the glass are $5 over lunch which is a deal for Beverly Hills. The garlic oil pasta with parm had WAY too much garlic, the service was mediocre, and the specials were all over $20 for lunch making this a spot that I wouldn't really recommend but would rate as terrible either.
