Recently I had the pleasure of having lunch at Il Pastaio in Beverly Hills, a highly popular local restaurant owned by Italian brothers Giacomino and Tanino Drago. Since its opening in 1994, the restaurant has drawn a vast clientele and excellent reviews! Gourmet magazine has called it ‘A piece of Heaven’.

I had the pleasure of meeting Giacomino’s wife, Alessandra, a wonderful and beautiful lady from Brazil!!!
