Using a palette of fresh ingredients, award-winning chef Celestino Drago artfully constructs a menu of Italian classics with a modern flair. Spark the mouth engine with il carpaccio, tender beef carpaccio flanked with crispy baby lettuce and aioli ($15), or l’insalata di asparagi, a combo of crisp California asparagus, almonds, and lemon aioli topped with chili vinaigrette ($13). The l’ippoglosso unites halibut, potato gnocchi, asparagus, and peas in a culinary harmony unseen since the California Raisins dominated the airwaves ($32). Tempting pasta offerings include le pappardelle al fagiano, with pappardelle, roasted pheasant, and morel mushrooms ($19). Drago Centro also offers a delectable four-course tasting menu for indecisive tongues ($48 per person, $72 with wine pairings).
