Maureen Vincenti’s Brentwood eatery is an old-fashioned Italian classic. This mature (in all the best possible ways) dining room is hitting all the right notes: Accented servers work with flawless proficiency, Maureen herself works the room like a pro, the pleasant light wood and elegant ambiance is relaxing but neither uptight nor sleep-inducing, and through the glass partition is the reassuring sight of chef Nicola Mastronardi, who’s turning out nothing but stellar food. The menu is comforting and classic, with pastas including house-made tortelli filled with osso bucco and risotto with artichokes, shrimp, and veal sweetbreads; wood-burning-oven entrées include their legendary whole roasted dover sole, sliced New York steak with herb raviolo, and house-made pork sausage with Brussels sprouts and roasted potatoes; and on Monday their thin-crust pizzas are some of the best around. 



  • Vincenti feels like the spiritual center of fine Italian cooking in Los Angeles. Try the porchetta - The best in California! Also, on Monday nights, pizza comes out of those big wood-burning ovens!
