All Our Los Angeles Tour Guides Say “Si” to Osteria Drago
Driving all the neighborhoods of Los Angeles regularly, especially along Sunset Boulevard, we note immediately when a new restaurant appears and make a point to get there if we believe it is a place our private luxury tour guests would like. That is definitely the case with Osteria Drago on the Sunset Strip just below Sunset Plaza. Celestino Drago, a renowned local chef with a wide range of successful Italian restaurants throughout Los Angeles, has done it yet again. With an ambiance he describes as “casual luxury” this comfortable establishment puts food and wine before its customers that quenches their thirst, satisfies their appetites and leaves them with an unremitting desire to return. The squid ink pasta with clams and white wine is squisito. Offering both outdoor and indoor seating we urge our own guests (and staff) to visit Osteria Drago for a very satisfying meal and some good people watching on the Sunset Strip. The restaurant is located between Beverly Hills and Hollywood so being anywhere around this lively part of Los Angeles will present an opportunity to stop in for a meal.
When asked by our luxury tour guests as we glide around Los Angeles where we would recommend they eat when the cuisine they seek is Italian we always suggest Ago. Just east of La Cienega we still consider it a part of the extended Restaurant Row running up from Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills all the way to Santa Monica Boulevard in West Hollywood.
Chef Agostino Sciandri puts forth a magnificent Tuscan meal chosen from a menu full of delicious possibilities. Pasta dishes galore, of course, but also fine selections of steak, veal and chicken creations as well as seafood. And the desserts… save room for the dolce dishes after your entrée.
Fine wines are available to accompany your meal and the atmosphere will remind you of Tuscany.
We will be delighted to drop you off after a tour of Beverly Hills or you can just get there on your own. However you find yourself sitting down to dinner at Ago we know you will enjoy an outstanding meal.
