L.A. Italian - Vincenti or Pecorino

  • 7

What's the better of the two places in Brentwood? Or should we just stick to what we love and go to Angelini Osteria?

  1. We like PALMERI in Brentwood. Angelini's always great! All Angelo is very good. La Terza is better lately than before with their new Chef Lucca.

      love palmeri too. (only qualm was about a month back running by there saw leftover dessert plates in the front table in the ront window... just kind of soured my stomach a bit to see the chocolate goop hardening over...)

      of your two, vincenti.

      if you'd head down to main, via veneto.

    2. il carpaccio just opened in palisades. Woth a look. Also, there are wons of good places in Santa Monica that are worth the treck. I havent heard of those two places though.

      1. I've been to Pecorino and really enjoyed it, but that was over a year ago. Unfortunately, I have no recollection of what I ate.

        1. I think Vincenti is one of the half-dozen best Italian restaurants in L.A. and offers a much higher level of cooking than Pecorino as well as a nicer atmosphere [my other picks are All' Angelo, Angelini, Drago, La Terza and Osteria Mozza (the noise/comfort level there can impinge on the enjoyment)]. Pecorino is a good neighborhood place but I do not find it worth a special trip. Individual meals at Valentino's have also been among the best in town but it has been inconsistent--though the wine list there always makes me glad I came!

          1. I think of Pecorino as having a "maverick" menu in comparison to other Italian restaurants. They don't serve the usual fare and they prepare it extremely well.
