The experience of dining at Drago was well worth the two hours we spent this evening. The wine list covered the world and the sommelier was helpful in finding a wine we wanted without overspending our limit. We had several people attending to our needs,...More

With the exception of the service, everything about Drago Centro is top notch. It's beautifully decorated, classy, and has an upbeat vibe. We enjoyed the octopus appetizer which was tender and cooked to perfection. For the main course we ordered the scallops -- the best...More

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
