LA Weekly's Description
Some people with whom I am acquainted consider the Hollywood trattoria La Buca to be one of the great Italian restaurants in Los Angeles, a place to find perfect gnocchi, crisp-crusted pizza and pasta made with the care that only an Italian grandmother could bring to the job. Briganti, a rather sleeker restaurant from the same owner, is more or less a replica of La Buca on South Pasadenas growing restaurant row, only with better furniture, easier parking and a patio perfect for sipping cool Orvieto on hot summer nights, but with the gnocchi recipe intact. Even if you are a La Buca regular, you may ask yourself where you have tasted pappardelle alla amatriciana, spaghetti with clams and pizza Margherita like Brigantis, until the answer occurs to you: pretty much everywhere, especially if you have spent much time in the neo-Tuscan ghetto in Brentwood.
Tips from foursquare
The pasta is to die for. Unless you're starving to death in which case non of this makes any sense. .
Our friends like to have a couple of glasses of wine with their meal and we don't drink at all. The restaurant refused to give us separate checks. Shame on you Briganti.
