dissapointing – Prompt seating, but we sat in the "quieter" upstairs (very noisy). Service was prompt, but then became too prompt when our main course arrived while we were enjoying our appetizer. We generally enjoy a nicely paced dinner, however we were mid dinner when we had finished one glass of wine. We felt like they were trying to hustle us out to seat another couple before they closed. To slow things down we ordered a bottle of wine. Boy did it get slow - in fact, our plates were cleared about 15 minutes after we finished (although they did try to clear my plate before I was finished.) Food was good, not great. There are better wine focused restaurants (like A.O.C.) which are a much better evening for the money. Total bill with tip was $170 (2 dishes, 1 appetizer, 2 wine flights @ $22 each, 1 $45 bottle of wine)
Wine Tastings Wednesday Are Wonderful! – Sample six wines and enjoy gourmet samples (last week "Buffalo Tartar") for only $20. Young Billy the bartender is 24yo Medical Student who will remember your name and keep your glass full.
Park across the street in the city garage for free.
I'll return again and again... – After a long weekend in LA sampling a lot of top rated Italian restaurants, I can firmly place Enoteca Drago at the top of the list. The service was sterling; we never had an empty water or wine glass. The menu was very inventive and the chef executed upon the ideas in the menu flawlessly. Highly recommended: wild mushroom risotto with blueberries (!). We never felt rushed, just felt pampered. Great place...
Celestino Drago recreates the Sicilian trattorias and wine bars of his youth--90210 style. – The Scene
Decked out in subdued designer duds, the sophisticated elite swarm this classy dining room. The space is graced with a floating cathedral ceiling of weathered stone, whimsical wrought-iron and colored-glass chandeliers that cast a sexy glow. A communal table at the front bay window encourages small parties to socialize over petite plates and wine carafes.
Renowned Chef Celestino Drago elevates unfussy Italian country cuisine with market-fresh ingredients and imaginative preparations. The enoteca menu offers tapas-style plates, like little mounds of mouthwatering caramelized short ribs on juice-soaked spelt, or delicious plump scallops grilled along earthy morels and piquant artichokes. Thin-crust pizzas are topped with truffles, prosciutto or porcinis and transcendent risottos rely on simple pairings, like red wine with leeks. Herb-crusted sea breem is moist and light, while a 34-ounce Piedmontese porterhouse for two--a lean, cholesterol-free "Flintstones"-sized slab of beef--channels the delightful decadence of a rustic feast.
Ho-Hum – I can't understand the buzz over Chef Drago or his new restaurant Enoteca Drago. This is the second Drago restaurant I've been to (the other is Celestino's in Pasadena) and I've left both times unimpressed and wondering what is so special about Drago. Enoteca is a perfectly nice restaurant. The service is attentive and the atmosphere lively but the food is nothing out of the ordinary. The pizza was tasty but both spaghetti dishes we tried were far too salty. This restaurant is neither here nor there and I doubt I'd suggest a return visit unless someone else wanted to go.
