We were a group of 8 and the service could not have been better. The food was fabulous , the service engaging and friendly. All fresh ingredients . Best veal chop I have had ever! Pasta was fresh and delicious and AUTHENTIC! Incredible desserts Great recommendation for wine . Will definitely be at the top of my list to return .
Another wonderful meal, thank you Mara and Chef Massimo!
The restaurant had the worst ambiance and decor of almost anyplace I’ve been. It was like a cave, poorly lit, cold and the plants were all dead. Totally surprising for such a high end location. It was a 50th bday and I was so disappointed and slightly embarrassed.
Everything was delicious. Pastas were outstanding, especially the linguine with lemon reduction.
This was an excellent Xmas dinner--great food, great service, beautiful surroundings. My husband, Will, and I, plan to make this our Xmas regular; as well as a frequent place of regular dining.
Thanks for bringing us to this experience!
Massimo is an incredible chef and he and his wife Mara have made Sfixio a great restaurant. Authentic Florentine cooking at its best.
We had the most amazing dinner
What an amazing meal! Sublime pasta and salads, fresh ingredients and beautiful presentation. What a find! I see why it has such great reviews. Add mine to the list.
This family owned Italian restaurant is our favorite in Beverly Hills. Real Italian food (we used to live in Italy) and a relaxed and sophisticated setting make this our favorite dining spot whenever we come to LA. We highly recommend Sfixio.
A most gracious host with very good service and tasty food, always very fresh.
We ordered the calamari to start and salmon / lasagna for dinner. Food was fairly bland and took awhile to
come out. The people that work there are nice, but service is average. Ambiance is strange. The lady who sat next to us was on her phone FaceTiming and the people working there didn’t do anything. Instead a guy at a table across the room yelled at her. There were only four/five tables seated at the time and it was 7-8pm on a Saturday night. I wouldn’t recommend this place. Go try one of the other Italian places in BH and you’ll get better overall everything for a similar price.
Charming atmosphere and delicious food. Mara and Massimo are the best! Truffle pasta unbelievable, what a difference home made pasta makes. Great place.
Lovely modern decor. Great menu of choices. All pasta dishes made to order. Flavors of Florence - not Rome not so heavy but delicious. Not covered in olive oil. Cream puff dessert a must
Love this restaurant! Great food. Everything is fresh and delicious. Owner is very warm and friendly and makes everyone feel so welcome. Also nice modern decor, but cozy atmosphere.
Consistently superb food, excellent service, & quiet surroundings, so you & your companions can enjoy a conversation.
Great Service, Great food . Great ambiance . Highly Recomended ❤️
A lovely spot that offers a charming and quiet setting for fabulous and fresh pastas and other Italian dishes.
After dining in the week before, I loved Sfixio so much that I had to come back! Once again, I had the delectable Truffle Pasta that I cannot get enough of! For desert, I had the Panna Cotta that is fit for foodies for sure. You will not find another desert like it! As always, the staff and ambiance were absolutely delightful. What a marvelous evening! I also decided that Sfixio would be the perfect place for my business Holiday Party and booked it right away! Mara, the owner, is so accommodating in making sure that everything is planned how you would like for your special event! I would highly recommend Sfixio for both dinner and events!
I was in town for only a few days, was looking for a special dinner on a Monday night, and found Sfixio had tables available so I reserved one for that evening. Turns out the owner was serving dinner for a group for a special event, so she opened her restaurant for business, not normally open on Mondays. What luck! She suggested the special that the chef/her husband had created and it sounded fantastic - truffle caviar pasta. And indeed it was. If I could have gotten away with licking the cleared plate without anyone seeing me, I would have. I savored the pasta dish as long as possible. I had a beautiful house salad as well. The staff was so friendly, engaging, and attentive. I look forward to going back next time I'm in town! Grazie mille!
Dining at Sfixio on Tuesday evening was absolutely DIVINE! When I walked in, I was immediately struck by the innate detail of the decor. From the one of a kind statues to the running waterfall and fish tanks, I was beyond impressed. When it came to the food, the dishes exceeded all my expectations. The calamari is absolutely to DIE for and the truffle pasta's presentation (served on Versace plates and everything) was beautiful and one of a kind. It had the perfect amount of truffle and was one of the best meals I've ever eaten! The owners, Mara and Massimo, are so lovely as they ensure that they greet each table and make you feel as though they are having you for dinner in their own home. They are from Florence and explained that everything is made fresh and to order as they do not own a freezer. When you taste the food, you believe it! I would highly recommend Sfixio for any occasion and you will be more than impressed!
Awesome food. Authentic Italian. Great service and ambience!
Our group had a fantastic time - with raves across the board for food and great hospitality. Thanks for everything!
We loved the innovative Tuscan menu and the quiet, elegant surroundings. Too pricey for everyday dining, but just perfect for romantic special occasions
Amazing spot with great service, the food was so good and delicious that we had to reorder some of it again!! From the appetizers to the Entree and finishing with the desserts!! Plus Impressive Italian wine. The only thing I would say the food is out of this world with great prices!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful and lovely Dinner.
First time at this authentic Italian restaurant. No checkerboard tablecloths—this was modern and stylish with amazing food! The chef is from Florence, Italy and the food was light and delicious. Wines were very reasonable too. A fabulous find in a city of overpriced places. Will certainly go again!
Always our favorite Italian restaurant - and there are soooooo many to choose from.
Great truffle pasta! Everything is home made and you really feel it in your plate!
There is no question about having a real chef in the kitchen. He’s there and he’s Italian!..
Quality, presentation, taste...it’s all there except for the quantity. Plates are small and very much on the nouvelle cuisine look.
As far as the service it’s not even close to what the food is like ...need major improvement on that.
The food here is amazing! One of the best Italian restaurants in LA, hands down. The freshest ingredients that really let each dish shine on it’s own. The owners are also lovely - a husband and wife duo from Italy who you want to befriend right away. What a gem of a place!
Sfixio is just so charming. Eating there is like being invited into Mara and Massimo's home in Florence. While Mara delights the front of the house (with that perfect Italian accent of hers) Massimo works miracles in the kitchen. Everything he touches is great, but his pastas are other worldly. Try his truffle pasta. It's so good you'll only be able to offer a small taste to someone you love dearly. If he is making risotto, order risotto. It's the best on earth. Order "common" Italian dishes like lasagna and eggplant parmesan -- which are so light, flavorful and delicate in Massimo's hands -- and you'll feel like an angel in heaven.
Please, treat yourself to Sfixio.
A wonderful experience. Maximo is a excellent young chef and his wife Mara welcomes the guest with charm and grace. The food is exquisite, impeccably prepared with only the best ingredients and very well presented.
This place is a gem in need of a good public relation.
Bring your friends please
Over-the-top fresh and creative food selections. The kitchen and service was world class. Go, you’ll be very glad you did.
This is the fifth time we’ve been to Sfixio and each time is sublime. This time, we split the most amazing pasta dish I can imagine. It’s called Cacio Pepe pasta with Sea Urchin. Oh. My. God. The first bite instantly transformed me into some sort of food nirvana. Of course the pasta was perfectly cooked, al dente. And the sauce, smooth, sensuous, incredibly tasty. The sea urchin was not overpowering, so I think people who would normally shy away from it in a sushi bar, would love it. Tastes just the right amount of ocean! Subtly briny and so rich. Highly recommended and I’m one of those who does shy away from sea urchin at the sushi bar for the most part. My wife had the eggplant parm appetizer and I had the veal scallopini. So delicious. So delicious. So. Delicious. This is my favorite restaurant for Italian food. The chef’s wife is in the dining room, charming as can be and very informative about the menu and their dedication to freshness. “We don’t have a freezer.” Every time we’ve been there has been incredible. I know I said that, but it’s worth repeating. My wife and I were in Italy for a week a couple of years ago and Sfixio is exactly like going back there. The best! Enjoy.
Our hostess/owner Marla was very engaging and a total joy to work with. We will be back :-)
This is our favorite restaurant - amazing fish and even more amazing the pasta!
Love this place!
Cathy and Steve
Great experience! My first time there and I already feel at home. The fresh pasta was incredible. The service was attentive, professional and yet very personal. Do Not miss the stuffed dates for dessert.
I'll be back!
As always, Mara is delightful and makes sure everything is to your liking. The restaurant was very busy on my latest visit but the service was seamless, and dishes arrived at just the right moment. The branzino was fantastic, and the truffle pasta was outstanding. The staff was friendly and attentive despite three large parties around us. Highly recommend!
Fabulous food, reminiscent of our trip to Tuscany. All the dishes hit the mark. The staff added a personal touch to the evening, felt like home. Amazing experience. A MUST try for anyone visiting.
Sfixio is absolutely incredible! We have a new favorite Italian restaurant! The food was so fresh; like it had been picked right out of the garden. We both had fish (Branzino, salmon) that was the best we have ever had. The food preparation was nothing less than world-class. We came all the way from the S Bay, after hearing how great Sfixio is, and without question, it’s well-worth the drive - I’d drive much further for a dining experience of this caliber. I’d also suggest dessert; the tiramisu and chocolate raspberry cake were simply unreal - phenomenal!
If you haven’t been to Sfixio, go, it’s an Italian/Med dining experience you’ll never forget. Bellissimo!
The best Husband and Wife team ever! The closest thing next to actuality dining in Florence
