If The Godfather had been filmed in Beverly Hills, there would definitely have been a scene set in La Scala. This is a classic Italian spot, full of red booths, Shahs of Sunset, and quite possibly Larry King. And they're all ordering one thing: Leon’s Chopped Salad, with as many additions (pepperoncini are mandatory) as possible. This is a classic BH lunch spot if there ever was one.

Chaumont Café and Bakery
The pastries at Chaumont in Beverly Hills often steal the spotlight, but don’t forget about lunch. We’re fans of the spicy tuna sandwich.
The Polo Lounge
The Polo Lounge seems like one of those classic Old Hollywood spots, but the food and the scene are awful. There are better places for star sightings.

Angelini Osteria is an excellent Italian restaurant in Beverly Grove that’ll put a pretty big dent in your wallet.
Colori is a solid, family-run Italian spot downtown, and one of the last of its kind.
