Enzo & Angela
I know the space is lovely, but how is the food?
I've avoided it because it strikes me as some MBA's attempt to start a restaurant chain. I know I'm judging a book by its cover.
perhaps there is something to that, but i doubt it. the owners are angela lansbury's daughter and her italian husband.
My office is next door, so I was hoping to love it, since it certainly would have been a convenient place to catch lunch or dinner. I tried it twice. For lunch, I had them deliver a salad. It was expensive (over $12 if I remember), so small that I was starving afterwards and nothing special in terms of quality. I also tried dinner once, ordering a number of dishes. The meal was so unmemorable that I now cannot remember what I ordered, but the bottom line is that I've never felt a compulsion to go back, which because I am just next door and am always looking for convenient places says something. Just my two cents.
I want to report a very positive experience. I had afabulous dish which was homemade; and you coud tell chicken ravioli in a sage butter sauce. The ceaser salad as well as the bread were very good. My wait person told me to come back as the chef does wonders with the fish specials. I know everything can hinge on what you happen to order;guess I was lucky. I sure don't envy some of these owners as being new to L.A. I am blown away by the overwhelming cometition.
