"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 menu of typical Italian dishes is unimaginative, very limited and way overpriced.

First time back in a few years. Excellent food, gracious service. One of a very few places where you can get Trippa Fiorentina. Intimate atmosphere. Party of 25 made the evening very noisy.

Fantastic as always! Chef/Owner Raffaele and Erin are great and are now remembering me!!! :-) They have my all-time favorite dish...Cacio e Pepe! After Roma, Italia, only the namesake in NYC and Pecorino do it almost just as well! If I'm within 90 minutes of Pecorino, I go! BTW...everything else on the menu is also delicious! ENJOY! Ci vediamo presto! CIAO for Now!

Looked like a cozy restaurant but was frenetic, cramped experience- despite the food that was above average. Not worth the trip from Santa Monica. Might be a decent local place but not worth the effort.

The food was outstanding. The meal was marred by the bill which listed dessert as an additional charge instead of part of price fix. The waiter said it was a mistake?

The service was terrific and the restaurant is cute, but the food was terrible. Between two of us we ordered the octopus starter, a pasta and the salmon. The octopus was mushy and the salmon wasn’t well flavored and had a crust of uncooked rice that felt like we were biting into sand. I will never go back here and wouldn’t recommend to anyone.

Waiter rushed us as far as ordering!! I think the table was booked for 8:00PM.
Gratuity was added onto the tax. Not right. Waiter said that’s the way the computer does it.
We will not return any time soon even tho the food is very good.

The food was absolutely fresh and delicious. The carpaccio appetizer was amazing, as well as the homemade soup, salmon, and fresh pasta of the day. Our waitress was delightful and and the atmosphere was charming. We will certainly be back soon, and it will be one of our regular dining choices!

Excellent meal. The appetizers and main dishes at our table were delicious. My friend wanted an affogato for dessert, which was not on the menu. They did not hesitate to provide one that was outstanding. It can be a bit noisy when crowded, but not so much you can't hear a conversation. We all enjoyed the meal and our time there.

excellent food, wine list and dessert... nice home-style place that has always been my neighborhood favorite. service was strangely overdone, asked how everything was a little too often, but that's my own bias - wanted a quiet evening.

We often eat here with family and friends. The service is always thoughtful and attentive. The food is delicious. It's just a wonderful neighborhood Italian restaurant. We love the homemade pastas swirled in a wheel of pecorino cheese! Yum! The fish and lamb dishes are authentic. The ambience is warm with brick walls and it is never too noisy.
