Great truffle pasta!!
Very nice restaurant with authentic italian food on its best level!! Pasta with white truffle were outstanding! Pulpo and Scallops are yummy !! Service was very nice and kind!!
Service was under level, I had to ask 4x to get salt and pepper. Meal was tasteless and they did not offer parmesan cheese or fresh pepper as you would expect at an italian restaurant
Always awesome experience!!!
This might've been the worst dining experience I've ever had -- the drinks we ordered didn't come until after a third reminder.....the food was abysmal. If I ever have another person suggest going to this restaurant for a meeting, I'll decide to not work with them (ahead of the meeting) due to their poor judgement.
Very nice dining and becoming one of our regular prior to attending performances at Disney Hall.
We were disappointed with the experience. It took 20 minutes to get our drink orders (after we bugged them twice) and another 20-30 minutes for our entrees. The place was not that busy. The food was OK, but not worth the prices. We did like the fact that you could go directly from the parking area into the restaurant and that you could use the parking for the Music Center events after dinner. However, overall, the five of us agreed we would not recommend this place. Look elsewhere.
The up sell at this restaurant is beyond reasonable.
New Year’s Eve
In love with their Carbonara... Beautifully presented, and awesomely prepared.
Too expensive and not worth it. Wants to be more but just wasn’t good enough.
Family Christmas Eve Dinner. We were given a horrible table after not accepting a seat on the patio that was unacceptable due to the weather and way they had the heaters. This was a time for me and my sons to relax together after a beautiful mass at the cathedral. Our courses overlapped each other even when we requested that they slow down to allow us to enjoy our evening—- we were raced, never once did a waiter come to refill our wine glasses- did it ourselves- but they were quick to give us food even when not finished with previous course.
There are many excellent Italian restaurants downtown. I will never return to Drago and will tell anyone who asks never to return. Overpriced, food was much too salty and the staff dismissive. A total disappointment!
Ordered the Feast of the Seven Fishes.
The meal was delicious.
Food was exquisite and served hot, as good food should be served. All courses well-timed and nicely presented. Server attentive to our pace and preferences. Marvelous octopus as well as halibut, risotto
Drag Centro continues to be superb in every way, our downtown go to. If anything the food is even better than ever. The service is gracious, attentive and professional. The atmosphere can be romantic or great for business or watching the game in the bar. And all this praise from people who have tried literally every new, trendy place downtown.
The Fettuccine with mushrooms and fresh truffles(so fragrant) was amazing! The Tiramisu dessert.... astounding. I've had Tiramisu many, many times, but this was on a whole different level. Served in a small Mason Jar...looks simple, almost plain, but with just one taste I was blown away. Simply put the entire meal was stupendous!
A great place to have a special occasion lunch. Unfortunately, my lasagna was dry and burnt on top, so it wasn't as appetizing as I had hoped. I'm not inclined to order that dish again. My guest enjoyed her lunch. Service is always excellent.
The food was absolutely delicious! Highly recommend this place for all foodies near and far.
Excellent in all respects. Foot superb and attentative service.
Absolutely fantastic service and food. The wine list is great and we were impressed with the knowledge and recommendations from the team. Having just gonna to Italy this past summer, this is the only meal we’ve had in the states since that has actually lived up to authentic Italian cuisine.
Sadly disappointed. Place was half empty, but food was still slow and lukewarm pasta. Service OK but not attentive Overall quite a disappointment. Was surprised.
Love Drago Centro! Fantastic truffle crusted chicken and tomato bisque soup! Parking was a breeze which is not easy in DTLA
Food was good. Smaller portion sizes. Service was excellent.
Great service and food was well prepared. Easy to meet for business meal given ambiance and noise level.
Always a consistently good spot in DTLA. No corkage on Sundays.
Literally my new favorite restaurant, I would highly recommend to anyone especially for a girls night out or a date
The food was delicious but most importantly the staff made us feel so special, best service I had in a while! Definitely a great place for a special occasion
Perfect place to ruin your evening!
We have been to Drago at least half a dozen times per year for the last five years or so. We have found their food and service impeccable. This time the food was fine, but the service was poor. The waiter said he couldn't pay attention to us because he had a large table. We had plenty of time before the theater, but he kept pushing the timing anyway. The wine ordered to arrive with our entree arrived 15 minutes after the entree. He forgot to put in our dessert order and rang up the bill assuming we would choose to forgo it. We said we had time and would like it. He disappeared to re-ring our bill and came back and took my credit card again. When he returned with the bill he lost my credit card and accused me of not giving it to him.
I would chalk this up to one bad waiter, but when we returned to the reception desk to get some help from the manager. When I described our problem to the manager he literally stood there saying nothing, doing nothing, and not even moving. With that management, I do not know how they can possibly improve.
