2 Italian restaurants I recommend aroudn Beverly Hills: Enoteca Drago at Canon Drive (good selection of wines) and Da Pasquale along Santa Monica Blvd. (family friendly - closed on Mondays). Other places to consider: Angelini Osteria in West Hollywood (Thursday is family dinner night), Katsuya for the best sushi (go to the original one in Ventura Blvd. in Studio City). For desserts, Sweet Lady Jane in Melrose at West Hollywood. And if you ever crave burgers, try In N' Out.
