"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)."

    This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. It is a casual, relaxed place with friendly, attentive service and very tasty food. The wine list includes some interesting Italian wines. I believe the pastas are homemade. The outdoor seating is sheltered from the street. They have parking behind the building. We would return.

    Pecorino is one of those restaurants that have transitioned from being the trendy, hot restaurant, written about with Stars next to the recommendations, to being the high, quality, classic, restaurant that provides and the perfect environment that giving the guests the ability to enjoy an authentic Italian cuisine without the distracting razzle dazzle. Without a doubt, it is probably one of the most authentic Italian restaurants that have not dumbed down the flavor for an American customer. The pasta, home-made, is excellent, as is everything else on the menu. And a secret - every Tuesday, fresh Mozzarella / Burrata is flown in from Italy - making the best Caprese in Los Angeles. To top off everything else, the owner is truly inspiring, fun and is passionate, and he offers a gluten free menu for those truly LA'ers....5 stars to Pecorino for all of the above and longevity with continued quality.

    It is a little annoying that they automatically add 18% gratuity to the bill for all parties. I have seen that with large groups but we were a party of two and that seemed unnecessary. The restaurant was not that busy and the server was not that attentive. Almost like "I'm getting my 18% anyway so who cares?" The food was good, but there are a lot of options in that neighborhood and this one was just so-so overall.

    Food was excellent, and the maitre d' was kind enough to switch us to an outside table at our request though the place was fully booked. Only mild criticism was that service was a bit slow; it seemed the place was slightly understaffed. That said, the server was polite and friendly. As neighborhood places go, this one is well worth patronizing.

    The food was just fine. They recommended a special pulled mozzarella appetizer. The cheese was bitter and so dry and it cost $35.00, ridiculous. It was just not great and it was so overpriced for what we received. My pesto pasta had no sauce, very bland. The bread was good but I must say our first and last visit.

    We lived in Southern California many years ago and this was one of our favorite restaurants. We were glad to see they still had our favorite dish, something we have never seen anywhere else, a lamb and artichoke heart stew with pecorino cheese. Absolutely delicious! We also had a type of appetizer we had never had, I believe it was a zucchini flower that was an unexpected treat. Salads, wine, dessert was all as we remembered it but what was really odd to us was the fact we were there on a Friday night and expected it to be somewhat crowded for the three hours we were there. Other than a couple seated next to us and some people dining outside, the place was empty. Are people in L.A. still afraid to go out to dinner? They're really missing out.

    Pecorino's is a neighborhood gem but worth the drive even if you don't live in Brentwood! Authentic Italian food in a cozy setting. Do not miss the Cacio e Pepe, which is as advertised - the house specialty of delicious handmade pasta in a perfect blend of cheese and pepper. The rack of lamb for two was expertly prepared, and the warm seafood salad offered a nice helping of seafood in a light vinaigrette dressing.

    I LOVE this restaurant. So authentic, creative, delicious and wonderful. It totally reminds me of traveling in Italy. Very glad the homeless situation has been rectified as I know that was difficult for them to deal with, although they handled it well with the diffused glass patio. Highly recommend.

    Our experience was average. The food and service were fine but not excellent. And the cost was exorbitant. The corkage fee was $40. Dinner for 5 people with no drinks was $450. They included 18% service which was fine. We love to support local restaurants but unfortunately we won’t go back to this one. It just wasn’t good enough for the price.

    From the moment we arrived at the restaurant, they have a chain preventing you from walking in. You have to stand out on the sidewalk until someone bothers to come and greet you. In our case, the hostess greeted us left us three times, completely overwhelmed, came back to remind us that there is a prefix menu of $105 per person, which was not listed on the open table reservation page. When I questioned that, she abruptly turned away for me, and started speaking to another patron. We were seated on their patio which is extremely cramped, our waiter crashed into me, and didn’t even bother to say I’m sorry. I had the tortelli, which was completely waterlogged. Along with the tuna tartare which was not fresh, tasted fishy, and was clearly prepared earlier in the day, as it arrived literally minutes after we ordered. All this what’s two glasses of wine,for the bargain price of $300.The whole experience was absolutely terrible, we will never come back to this overpriced overrated place!

    Fat bald guy in tan outfit was very very rude. As we enter, we asked if we could eat outdoors. He literally attacked us for booking on open table He said: just because u booked on open table u think u can sit anywhere u want…. We politely said no…we were just asking a question and u my friend are very rude. Never will eat there again. Big part of dining out is feeling good about the experience. Fat bald guy at entrance needs to get a new job as he is obviously unhappy with his life Cheers. Never again.
