Briganti Restaurant Review

: This suburban charmer is a good option among the highly respectable restaurants on the once-sleepy South Pas dining scene. The casual spot has candlelit linen-topped tables that occupy a narrow dining room decorated with sheaves of wheat and modern art. The menu reads rather predictably, but the kitchen applies a refined touch to high quality ingredients. We recommend the velvety burrata and arugula salad, light-as-air gnocchi in a spirited four-cheese sauce, and al dente but creamy wild mushroom risotto. Look for clean, simple renditions of salmon, steak and pastas, plus a solid tiramisu to finish. A short but thoughtful all-Italian wine list is a plus.

Briganti in South Pasadena, what a find!
by dryanua on Tue Jul 01, 2008 3:47 pm
That was the best Italian food I've had since Italy. The chef takes great pride in obtaining top ingredients. We had the gnocchi with pesto, perfect gnocchi, would only fault that it was a bit oversauced but that allowed us to dredge bread in the great pesto. The risotto creamy yet al dente with fresh summer truffles, what more could you ask for. Sam the manager greeted us and was quite accommodating when we brought our own wine. Their own wine list is quite credible. We can't wait to get back. :D
