Jacopo's (Italian) Beverly Hills Reviews
Jan 10, 2006
Jacopo's provides great food and excellent service at a very fair
price. The complimentary bread is excellent but also dangerous because
it is likely you'll eat so much that you won't have room for anything
else. It is slightly toasted on the outside, soft and warm on the
inside, and sprinkled with herbs. The thin-crusted pizza is simple in
the sense that the ingredients don't compete with each other. Unlike
other places, no single flavor dominates, and the tomato sauce,
cheeses, bread and toppings all complement each other very nicely.
Nothing tastes too cheesy, heavy or artificial.
The service is also very good here. Our waiter was incredibly friendly
and gave us free samples of food and drinks that we were curious about.
The service is Italian style in that they don't bring you the check
unless you specifically ask for it. After dinner, my friends and I just
hung out and chatted for another half-hour, and and no point did we
feel rushed to leave. Even though it's in Beverly Hills, the prices
were very reasonable, and a large pizza was enough to feed four people.

I've been going to Jacopo's since I was about 3 years old. In my opinion, they have the best pizza in the world, outside of Italy. The crust is thin and crisp, yet doughy at the edge. It isn't too dry, but it is not soggy like some places. The sauce is superior because they do not load it down with spices and herbs -- hence they do not make it overpowering compared to the toppings and the cheese. Also, they do not drown the pizza in cheese. Basically, its just a well-balanced, well made piece of Italy.I always get pizza when I go, but dates and friends have told me that their other entrees are good too.Finally, they are not cheap (hey it's Beverly Hills) but not extremely expensive either. I believe its WELL worth it to visit Jacopo's if you are in town and like Italian.
