Less hassle at this location
When I first went to Bossa Nova I tried the Sunset location, which had great food alongside a 40 minute wait and a $6 Valet, and I wasn't too enthused about coming back frequently. However, when I discovered the Pico location, this place has become a staple for me and the rest of my college friends because of the indulgent food at a decent price and its HUGE portions (lots of leftovers). Plus, since it has a brazillian flare, it attracts a lot of my out of towner friends who want to try something ""ethnic"". The gnocchi is heavenly in any pasta dish, and the salmon pizza is a treat for those who love seafood. As for atmosphere, I've been on a few first dates here, which worked well because of it's casual scene but it's just as good for larger parties.
