PIzzicotto is a Brentwood mainstay that, unlike many Brentwood restaurants, makes for a good casual weeknight dinner at an actually-reasonable price. The whole place looks like a restaurant inside a boutique grocery store, with wine bottles and pasta products lined up all over the place, and handwritten menus. They serve the kind of old-school Italian food that everyone can appreciate - and they do it well. It’s the perfect place to show up with friends and no reservation, and split a few pizzas.
