"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)."

Owner moved me twice because my friend had not shown up yet for the reservation. And made a big production of it both times. It was embarrassing and unnecessary. The food was average. Probably wont be back.

It was a great spot except right next door is your view of a huge homeless camp. Hard to find parking as well. If you could, get dropped off since we didn’t feel safe walking.

Great setting and lovely outdoor patio. Friendly, kind attentive staff. Food was average for Italian. Appreciated the good bread and olive oil but thought the mains could use some work. They offered Paella as a special, and it was really bland rice and seafood (with a random chicken wing thrown in there).

We were the only customers there when we first arrived. Service was prompt and the people friendly. Restaurant is on a noisy corner of San Vicente across from the Veterans tent city. Food was good but the limited selection menu was disappointing. Good wine list. Might come back in normal times and dine inside.

A completely and utterly memorable evening, made all the more memorable by the incredibly attentive and friendly help from the owner, and the entire wait and kitchen staff. Every dish was amazing, and the wine suggestions were fabulous. The enormous 43oz T-bone that we shared after starters and pasta was one of the most extraordinary dining experiences I have had recently.

This is the first time I’ve had to complain about a restaurant My son has severe nut and mustard allergies . He alerted the server as soon as we ordered as he always does, she forgot to tell the chef and we were served food that contained the very things he was allergic to....if we had not asked again , my son would have ended up in the hospital. Worst of all, the manager treated it as if it was no big deal. My son travels all the time for his work and this has never happened before, certainly not in an expensive restaurant....the check was $ 250 . So be careful if you go to this restaurant

Made a reservation for Valentine's day and the restaurant was slammed. Hostess did her best and got us seated after a short wait and offered a glass of champagne which we accepted - nice touch. The service and food were excellent. Cudos to the staff for being able to handle the Valentine's day crush.

I parked in the back, per the sign that reads “Parking for Pecorino”, only to be confronted at the check in that I needed to use the valet and be charged ANOTHER $15 (with tip). Ridiculous and unexpected...I read the sign, I spent $210 for a dinner for two, and received this “gift” at the end of my meal. I come to the restaurant often and will reconsider given last nights overall surprise and service level. Sad.

While the food is quite good overall, the wine list is limited and considerably overpriced (as are the main and other dishes). Moreover, the owner/maître d was quite inhospitable and has demonstrated and attitude toward non-regulars on both my recent visits. Given the number of good Italian restaurants in the Brentwood neighborhood, Pecorino rates toward the bottom in terms of value and quality.

Food was good but not great. A little pricy. The restaurant closes super early and we felt a little rushed at the end.
Service was attentive and friendly.

We took our parents here for Christmas Eve dinner, couple of things right off the bat. The restaurant was decorated well, the layout was good and was not overly crowded. The staff was hot and cold, all we’re very friendly, but not very attentive to the table. Drinks took awhile, it just felt like we had to always track someone down. Their offering was either the regular menu or they had a price fixed offering as well. The truck was everyone at the table had to go with the price menu if one person wanted it. We had two teenagers with us and this would have been a waste at 75.00 a head. Also found that they were “out” of certain items on the menu but in reality they were steering you to a certain selection. Example there was a burrata special and a burrata on the main menu, they told us they were out of the main menu burrata but we could have the special. We also found that they were less than accommodating for special requests which was fine as it was stated to be so on the menu but just beware they really mean it. Lastly the quality of the food was decent. Four of us had a special pasta which was homemade pasta noodles with olive oil and black pepper swirled around in a pecorino cheese wheel for flavor table side. The show was fun, the quantity of food was challenged and there were no sides served with the pasta so it was uninspired at best. One of our party ordered a seafood medley pasta dish, one the ny steak and one the salmon. The table did not get any appetizers, but they do charge for bread as an FYI. We also had a bottle of wine and three desserts among the party. At the end when the bill came I was astonished to see the total was around 460.00 dollars including the wine which was around 85.00. Had this been a 300.00 dinner maybe I would feel differently but it was so overpriced to what the value was I don’t think we will be back anytime soon.
