The atmosphere and everything was amazing. The food was amazing as well. I would most definitely go back.
Beautiful space, great food selection, service super slow due to pandemic no doubt.
The food is outstanding and the service is attentive and efficient. This is one of our favorite restaurants.
The food is delectable and beautifully presented. Very creative. Service could not have been better.
Parpadelle and Chianti was spectacular. Great presentations and service.
The Burrata appetizer was amazing and so was our entrees. The vibe on the outside patio with twinkle lit trees was romantic and beautiful. We got a corner table away from the rest of the tables so it was the perfect setting for a nice evening out. I will definitely be going back.
The DineLA menu was delicious from start to finish. We were also recommended a fantastic red wine to match the food! 10/10 would come back to explore other parts of the menu.
Delicious food and really fantastic wine service from Mark. A lovely restaurant.
One of the best overall meals my wife and myself have ever had!
Server was not attentive. Took our orders in the beginning and that was the last time really hearing from the guy, besides the time he came over to tell us that our orders had been pushed back for some reason. Long waiting period between the appetizer and main course. The table next to us (which had ordered their entrees right after us) had already finished their main course when our appetizer was just removed from the table. Different server or busser would serve or clear the table for us instead of our actual server who had taken the orders in the beginning. Had to make it to another place with no more time to wait for dessert which could probably take another hour or so given the lackluster service up to that point. Kindly waved the busser down to ask for the check so that we could leave. Overall, good quality food; just horrible service and vibe.
Staff was very friendly and attentive.
Highly recommend this restaurant.
The service, knowledge, wine list, food and wine pairing, and the real Italian pasta experience are second to none in DTLA.
One of the best plates of pasta that I’ve ever had. Fettuccini with wild mushrooms and shaved black truffles was fantastic.
Piero and team are the best. Outstanding as always. And everything served with a smile. Thank you.
Lukewarm on staff, strange behavior and unpredictable service of requests. Some items were served quickly and others took a long time. Spotty service and server attitude was peculiar.
Good food and nice atmosphere.
The truffle chicken is amazing. A must try. Service was impeccable and on point.
Absolute best dinner. Our go-to when in town. Free icious food. Great server.
Helpful waiter. Great food options.
Outdoor seating available, excellent service and food, as usual.
One of my favorite "go to" restaurants in downtown. The food is always impeccable, and service is refined. Helmed by two legends in the industry, it is always an enjoyable experience to dine at this institution.
Never fails to deliver the best Italian food in Los Angeles. Great service!
Great ambiance, owner of the place was attentive and extremely helpful.
Heat place to have nice dinner that tastes as good as it looks, with the service to match! I don’t think you’ll be disappointed
It was a great experience/ staff was great and server was excellent
Good food slow Inattentive service
Piero and Celestino run a beautiful restaurant the history behind the people who made this dining experience possible runs deep in the old local LA restauranteur history. Every single plate and dish on this menu has been curated to a museum level quality of a culinary experience. Seasonally they are able to dynamically change the menu to bring authentic traditional Italian fare with a contemporary twist. Lovely place lovely food. This place would definitely make the Michelin guide, they might have to do some crazy molecular gastronomy twists for them to be up for a star but right now they definitely at least make the guide. Drago Centro is unmatched as far as downtown LA fine dining.
Outstanding service and remarkable experience.
Great location excellent food. And service
Lovely high end Italian fine dining with service at its best. The appetizers not to be missed are the langoustine carpaccio and octopus. Salmon and skin cooked to perfection! Great cocktails and a superb and reasonably priced wine selection. No gimmicks here!
Exquisite food and a very helpful wine director. Great lower priced wines as well as well known superior wineries are available. Just had a lobster and fettucini dish which was so good I wanted to rub it in my hair. Also a light red wine from southern Italy that was pointed out by the wine director. We had a fabulous and affordable dinner.
We decided to visit Drago for our honeymoon dinner and it was amazing! The food was great and the drinks were outstanding! We really enjoyed it and at the end when we got dessert, they surprised us by writing Congratulations in chocolate and it was so cute! Definitely recommend!
Italian tapas. Portions are ridiculously small. Definitely not worth the price we paid for.
Great outdoor patio setting to enjoy happy hour with friends.
It was nice
Celebrating closing on my first home.
Awesome spot for any occasions.
Food was impeccable each course was extremely delicious. Nice classy setting. Would definitely go back food quality was amazing, wish portions was slightly more but overall outstanding!!!!
Both my wife and I loved the restaurant. Food was very good. The service was very good. We enjoyed our dinner, highly recommend
Great place and food. The only thing I recommend is not taking an SUV if you want to be able to park underground. Otherwise it was excellent !
The food was great, but the service was sub par. We brought one bottle of red wine and purchased a bottle of white. They only gave us glasses for the white. We had to use the glasses we used for the white when we switched to red. Also the waiter served my food to my son and gave me an empty plate for his steak which he place in front of my son. When I asked where my dish was, the langostino appetizer, he pointed the plate in front of my son. My son thought it was just greenery for the steak. Anyway, even though he had put a large piece of meat on the plate, the waiter just had me switch with my son. He should have offered to get me a new order of The langostino. He made the mistake and as the langostino is very white and matched the plate it was hard to tell what it was.
I also had a problem in that I asked for the wine list and never received one. I ordered the wrong wine because I didn’t get to see the wine list. I was not happy with the service at all. I did enjoy all the food. The Langostino appetizer was very good and I tasted the streak and it was perfect. I also loved the olive bread. But I won’t go back, even though it is one of my favorite restaurants until the service improves.
