This little place is a jewel in a city with over stuffed, prissy whos who resturants. The owners make everyone feel like they are family and the food is superb. What more can anyone ask for in a tiny little charming place in their own

A casual, fun place that attracts Brentwood locals and Angelenos alike, this little place with the big servings is always busy so don't go without a reservation. Your friends not too into pizza? Don't worry. Have them try the gnocchi,

Delicious home made Italian food with some great ingredients, including unusual dishes like spinach and cheese ravioli in a basil and tomato sauce. The risotto is just creamy enough and their salmon very moist and flavorful. Prices are moderate, main courses in the mid-teens. The main dining room is entered from the street. It is narrow because it shares a deli counter, where you can buy a variety of Italian delicacies. The upstairs dining area is more intimate and family friendly. The serving staff is welcoming and very helpful. Reservations suggested.

I found Pizzicotto using UrbanSpoon, and it is a new favorite of mine! I went with a friend, with whom I had visited Italy, and we enjoyed the excellent food and the memories it brought back. The Pollo Frescha is AMAZING!

I get lunch take-out from here 2-3 times a week. The food is incredible - I am Italian and this food is authentic - not the Buca di Bepo/Maria's stuff. The service staff is always polite and attentive. I'm not sure who everyone is

I couldn't agree more about the woman who operates the place. She has to be the rudest, nastiest restaurant proprietor in LA. I think the food is pretty good for the price, but eating there is such an ordeal because she's just so rude.

I've heard recently that Brentwood is becoming the new Little Italy because of the numerous Italian restaurants around, however, Pizzicotto is by far my favorite spot. I've tried most of the others in the area and will say that for the most part all are delicious, but the local and homey feel of Pizzicotto makes this location a must dine-in. The owners and staff always remember us by name and welcome our friends. The specials are always worth a try, especially the cantaloupe, burrata cheese, tomato, & prosciutto. SO YUMMY! The pastas & pizzas are amazing and if there is something you'd like made, but isn't on the menu the chef's are more than happy to make it for you. Enjoy!

The closest thing to a warm, locals-only Italian spot (although nothing in Brentwood is for locals only). Cozy atmosphere and sharp waitstaff. LOVE the pizza and specials. But make sure you make a reservation!

I had lunch here and I liked it. It's definitely a fairly small restaurant, so I can understand that you may have to wait to be seated here. But once you do sit down the food is good. They have a nice selection of Italian Beer as well.

This restaurant is SRO for the Friday night and Saturday crowd, but any regular will tell you it is worth the wait. The food is prepared so simply, yet mouth-wateringly delicious. Try the simple broth with mini ravioli, or the bruschetta. You would think it was invented hear. They have mastered the art of the thin pizza crust---not dry and not soggy---just right.
