My family and I have frequented Briganti for many years. My guess is that it is close to 10 or 15 years. We have had family "episodes" and "issues" at times, but overall, the staff has treated us with respect, knowledge and great food (even if we leave early because of a meltdown). We have thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. The... More

Briganti is an honest to goodness Italian restaurant, run by a local Italian family, that remains true to its roots. They use good ingredients, offer classic dishes with only minor variations here and there, and provide a cozy, friendly environment. There's nothing flashy or trendy here, just good Italian cuisine. The dining room is very small and cozy, but there's... More

I love this place. I loved it since the first time. The ambient is very homely but also very nice decorated. On summer they opened the main window panels so you can feel the breeze at night time and it is really delightful. The lights on the ceiling reminds me my hometown restaurants. The menu is very good, great assortments... More

A very friendly authentic Italian upscale restaurant. In addition to acomprehensive menu there are always daily specials that are designed to please. A good wine list. If you are in the mod for something basic pizza and pasta is available.

The restaurant was empty at 9:15 on Saturday night. We were 15 minutes late for our 9:00 PM reservation and we were welcomed by being told that they would have closed an hour ago but they were waiting for us and we needed to get our order in in 5 minutes because the kitchen was closing. Nice. What business are... More

This is a nice place for couples, for families, or special occasions. The proprietor's personality gives the place a real Italian feel. The waiters and waitresses are attentive. The bread they serve while you're looking over the menu is unique they are happy to refill the basket. There are a variety of dishes with truffles listed on the back side... More

This is my number one Italian in the San Gabriel Valley. Where do I start. The facility itself is located on the fashionable Mission Blvd. in South Pasadena. Parking can be a challenge. Indoors is impeccable with a sparkling dining room and a very popular indoor patio. The menu has the best variety of Italian dishes I have seen including... More

They make their own pasta which is most flavorful. Classic Italian dishes and they are more than happy to customize an entree to your liking. While not a menu item they prepared a sautéed calamari pasta in a spicy red sauce for me. It was excellent. They have a very interesting wine list which is varied in both selection and... More

Last Saturday night we attended an event in town that got out at about ten after nine in the evening and we were hungry. We stopped by one of our favorite restaurants in South Pasadena, Shiro, and the wonderful hostess apologized profusely that they had just closed the kitchen and sweetly asked if we could return another time. No problem.... More
