A word from Pecorino Restaurant
"Pecorino: This newcomer from two former Toscano employees is one of the most exciting new restaurants of the year, serving one of the most refreshingly original and authentic Italian menus in the city. Bravo!" "Angeleno Magazine" "Choose any dish on Pecorino's menu and travel through Italy while dining! Raffaele will cook your spaghetti "Cacio e Pepe" or "Carbonara" just like the best restaurants in Rome would offer. The "Branzino stuffed with artichoke will make you feel you are in Capri again, the veal chop with Porcini will take you straight to Abruzzi. The strawberry almond cookies "Millefoglie" &the Pecorino cheeses cannot be missed. Ask Mario or Giorgio to suggest their favorite Italian wines and your dining experience can only be duplicated on your next visit to Pecorino (or Italy)." "LOS ANGELES MAGAZINE"Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Holiday weekend and the place surprisingly was not fulll as usual. The food and service were down a notch and since it is one of our favorites that was disappointing."

  • "Wednesdsy night was very quiet, but the welcome warm and service attentive. The fresh pasra was divine. A favorite eatery"
    Dined on 8/27/2014
  • "There are many, many Italian restaurants on the west side, Brentwood, to choose from- we keep coming back to Pecorino, because it is Authentic- Food and Service, so for a very nice evening- support the neighborhood- a best choice"
    Dined on 8/24/2014
  • "I do not think I will go back even though the food is good After all these years they have never obtain a liquor license to service alcohol...serves only wine. The guests we entertained felt the same way. Now most people are drinking Vodka and wine with dinner......."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "This restaurant never disappoints. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and exceptional. We think this is one of the best places in Southern California. You never go home disappointed."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "Especially appreciate nice wines by the glass. Rare to find a Barolo when you can't drink more than a glass. We weren't rushed which was special. Will be back."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "This restaurant is small, with exposed brick walls and really nice lighting. I ordered their vegetable soup, my guest ordered burrata salad. The soup was piping hot (a big plus) but largely flavorless. My guest was disappointed in her salad, as it was an unattractive blob of cheese on overcooked tomato slices. As an entree, we had both ordered their special -- a lamb and pork ragout on pappardelle. The ragout was largely flavorless as well. Final straw was when the pasta arrived buried in shaved cheese (not mentioned in his description of the dish). Getting one without cheese seemed a gross imposition and he repeatedly made cracks to other guests and waiters about my request for a cheese-free dish. Not sure how this place survives."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I would never endorse this restaurant. The food was dreadful; ie. A dish called polla fra diavalo was a Cornish Game Hen slathered in Dijon mustard (Ugh). Save your money this restaurant is overpriced and under baked!"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Found this restaurant to be everything we expected. Food was excellent, presentation beautiful and the service was very attentive. this will be a regular stop for us in the future. wish we lived closer!"

  • "pecorino is my favorite local italian restaurant. love the food, wine, wait staff and setting. it's casual, elegant and relaxed. my favorite dish is the incredible 'Cacio e Pepe'. (spaghetti with pecorino cheese, black pepper and extra virgin olive oil). perfect!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Italy we must recall is both old and new, state born in the 19 th century over Civilization 3 thousand years old. Pecorino honors the traditions of its region while celebrating the diversity of Italian cuisine executed with perfection by a chef who literally watches over his patrons as he cooks. The clams and spaghetti could not have been better, even on the shores of the Adriatic"

    Dined on 7/16/2014
  • "Good soups, excellent chicken milanaise, wonderful bread and fava bean spread, pasta cooked to perfection and good deserts. Combined with caring service. All four of us were happy with the evening. About $100 per couple.6"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We love the cacio e pepe, the steak was one of the best ever...however, it can get very hot and noisy on a sat night...and the air conditioning needs an upgrade, the room was 82 degrees!"
    Dined on 7/5/2014
  • "we go about twice a month and it is outstanding. You could dream about the spaghetti carbonara"
    Dined on 6/26/2014

    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Always enjoy our evenings at Pecorino. They have delicious bread and a nice Hummus type spread. This time the three of us shared 1 Mixed Salad, 1 excellent fava bean soup, two pasta dishes (Bolognaise and Cacio Pepe) and steamed spinach. Every component was very good as was the service. Dinner including tip was about $100. Atmosphere is pleasant."

  • "This is our go to restaurant for a special occasion."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We had a wonderful dinner and everyone loved their meal. The Dover Sole on the parchment paper is devine, and they make one of the best bolognese in town!"
    Dined on 5/8/2014
  • "Cacia e pepe was best I've had outside of Italy, homemade pasta dramatically finished and presented in a hollowed out massive round of Pecorino, sides scraped to top the dish. Incredibly gracious service attitude from everyone. Hugely diverse menu, we wanted everything on it. We spent hours, it was so comfortable. The only thing missing was the Italian countryside outside the door."
    Dined on 5/7/2014
  • "Our appetizers and dinner was consistently good and very tasty. Service with a smile to boot...."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "I was not impressed with the food. The artichokes and fava beans in the salad were raw and tasteless. The amatriciana was too salty and pork pieces tasted like chunks of fat. The pour for a Barolo at $20 a glass was quite a small amount. "
    Dined on 4/24/2014
  • "From the wine to the starters of tuna tartare and bolonese, to the most wonderful branzini with mushrooms in parchment, to perhaps the best tiramisu I've ever had, our dinner was tremendous."
    Dined on 4/13/2014
  • "Food was excellent especially the branzino Service was disappointing. Had to ask several times for certain items before dinner. Waiter will not show for a long time serving other tables. Lots of confusion. Very noisy. Don't look for a quiet dinner unless you go after 9-9:30 PM. By 10 PM we could hear each other much better."
    Dined on 3/29/2014
  • "Pecorino is a lovely, warm, inviting restaurant on San Vicente in Brentwood. This the 4th or 5th time I've eaten there and each time reminds me why I keep going. The food, ambiance, wine list are second to none. Most recently I had the filet of sole, baked on parchment paper, covered with scalloped potatoes, thin slices of zucchini and sprinkled with freshly grated Pecorino cheese. The person I was with ordered the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. Brick walls, subdued lighting, and a welcoming, courteous professional staff make for a lovely evening. Highly recommended."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "One of our go to favorites when we are on the westside."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "We start at Pecorino with the delicious bread and garbanza bean hummus ......Also enjoyed the bean soup as well as a nice mixed green. Cace de Pepe was delicious....bolognaise good.....and marinara was also enjoyed by the third person in our party. Service is gracious and caring."
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "The food is consistently excellent. This is one of my favorite restaurants for good Italian food."
    Dined on 3/8/2014
  • "This is almost impossible to find in the US--pasta as it tastes in Rome. Even better. This is real Italian pasta, not the stuff for Americans. I love this place."
    Dined on 2/27/2014
  • "Pecorino is a classy place to dine. All dishes were expertly prepared including special requests like like asking for no salt to be used on anything. Likewise, a request to have the pasta cooked in fresh, not salted, water was similarly honored. Very tasty cuisine. One will pay for quality here."
    Dined on 2/25/2014
  • "Been twice in the last two weeks. If you can get a table by the window, it is not too noisy. Great atmosphere. Great food. Try the cacio e pepe, or the veal milanese. Or lobster pasta special. And the braised artichokes. Almost everything is great. Love the pear gratin for dessert, although the waiter talked us into the millefleurs the last time, which was excellent -- light and refreshing. Always an enjoyable place to eat."
