"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)."

The food was fabulous and the service was great. The owner waited on us and he was lovely. We had the cacio de Pepe and the cod and they were unbelievably delicious. I’ve been craving both since we ate there. Definitely need to go back soon. We also had the sweet onion and tuna tartare which were fabulous. It was a special occasion and he brought us some kind of strawberry dessert that was incredible. Highly recommend Pecorino. I can’t wait to go back.

Beautifully cooked and charmingly presented delicious authentic Italian food, just like eating out in a good family owned restaurant in Italy.
The little outside booths are lovely. Each has its own heaters and is lit by candlelight and twinkling fairy lights wound through the greenery. Opaque privacy screens shield you from the street outside so it feels like your own little private area.
The staff are discreet and attentive without intruding on your evening.
If I could wish for one thing it would be a bigger drinks menu with a wider choice of cocktails and wines to pair with the outstanding food.

Sat outside which was nice. Glad the SV homeless encampment moved inside a safer place in the grounds of the VA.

The food was good and on par with Italian restaurants in the area.
The valet lost our key and we had to stay an hour after we wanted to leave (we were the last people in the restaurant as they were closing). He called the manager and told him that he found the key in his car (after he got home). He came back and gave us the key. Crazy night but it turned out well.

Took out of town niece & hub wonderful dinner on a Friday night. We all ordered different dishes everything was incredible! I have never tasted pasta so fresh I couldn’t stop eating it. The Branzino is absolutely the best fish I have ever tasted!!it’s grilled outside taste seasoning perfect. Our waiter was very attentive & friendly. Suggested a wine that was less then what we were looking at, he brought a taste sample, so 2 bottles later it’s very nice white wine w/the fish. Again everything was amazing served perfectly, we sat outside. After we cleaned our plates clean took a break some wine then he offered dessert. I love Tiramisu, Percirino did not let me down, over the top excellent, just the way it’s supposed to be made, wonderful. Table ordered the fudge brownies they loved. Can’t recommend Pecorino enough, if you want just a relaxed quiet dinner with excellent food this is the place.

Pecorino has always been a favorite restaurant of mine and absolutely never disappoints! While everything on the menu at Pecorino is great, my absolute all time favorite is the Cacio y Pepe, if you haven't had it then you simply must!

Rafaele is the absolute best and will make sure you are well taken care of!

Reliably delicious Italian food. Front patio is a little bit noisy but they did a good job setting the sidewalk up as an outdoor dining space. The waitstaff were welcoming but a little overwhelmed, not the service we remember pre-COVID. Overall, we look forward to going again.

It has easily been 5+ years since the last time we dined here but it felt just like coming home. We enjoyed our dinner immensely from the burrata and avocado salad starters to sharing several pastas and a nicely plated rob eye. The pastas were all as I remember them (the carbonara and the ragout being my favorites), the rib eye was a bit underdone but the outside was perfectly crisp and seasoned and the accompanying vegetables were delightful. Desert was also quite good - note for future reference the portion of gelato or sorbet is quite large and easily shareable amongst 2-3 people, the millefoglie house specialty is light and flavorful. We sat on the outdoor patio seating which is alongside noisy San Vicente but we could still hear one another across the table just fine. Highly recommend! Grazie mille - ci vediamo a subito!

The food is very bad. Like eating in a bad restaurant of 1970’s.
Pasta overcooked and with no flavor. Very poor and low quality ingredients in all the dishes we had. Very bad choice and expensive.

First they tried to seat us near a bbq that they were using so I asked to be moved. Then they put us in an external door way and so only one of us had a decent view, I had to stair a food stained door, disgusting, felt like I was eating in a dirty alley. The starters were good. The mains - Cacio Pepe was not very flavorful, the chicken Milanese had a bit too much breading and my son who usually loves this dish at every other Italian place didn’t eat much of it. I hate leaving a mediocre review but it wasn’t great. Not worth the money. I’ve had better meals all over town Amici Brentwood, Forma, Sor Tino, Locanda Portofino just to name a few.
