LA Weekly Ranks Gnocchetti at Bucato in Culver City Among the Best Dishes of 2014

The LA Weekly named the Gnocchetti at Bucato the 9th best dish in Los Angeles in their annual round-up of the city's best food. Here's what the paper said about the pesto pasta dish, which author Besha Rodell called "bright, mellow, and almost floral":

It's hard to pick a favorite pasta from Evan Funke's Bucato in Culver City. In fact, it's hard to pick a favorite dish at all. The focaccia is revelatory, and the panzanella salad isn't just the best panzanella in our panzanella-saturated town -- it's one of the best salads, period. But in the end I had to choose the gnocchetti, bathed in vibrant green pesto. Bright, mellow and almost floral, Funke's pesto is a great reminder of why this basil-based concoction has become one of the world's most popular sauces. The gorgeous, tiny, rolled pasta support the sauce with just the right amount of bite, the perfect resistance.

You can read the whole list -- which named the trout roe with peas and lemon curd at Red Medicine in Beverly Hills as the city's best dish -- HERE.

Bucato is located in the Helms Bakery District at 3280 Helms Ave.
