Some people 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 Pasadena’s 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. La Buca regulars should ask themselves where they have tasted pappardelle alla amatriciana, spaghetti with clams and pizza Margherita like Briganti’s, until the answer occurs to them: pretty much everywhere, especially if they've have spent much time in the neo-Tuscan ghetto in Brentwood.
