Drago – Santa Monica

One of our favorite lunch places is Drago in Santa Monica.

We always start with Arancine as an amuse.

Gooey and gorgeous inside of the Arancine

Mozza’s Arancine – little balls of nothing

BYO White Wine

Grilled Shrimp with Citrus Vinaigrette, Mandarin Orange, Fennel and Frisee – delicious

BYO Red Wine

Spaghetti al Cartoccio “Seafood Spaghetti, light Garlic-Tomato Sauce -this dish can be a disaster if the seafood is overcooked – not at Drago – perfect mussels, excellent shrimp, tender scallops and squid

On the left Fettuccine alla Bolognese and on the right Risotto with Sausage – my husband always asks for a split order and they are more than accomodating.

Cheese to finish the red wine

A perfect lunch.

    Looks delicious! What a great idea – split order of pasta! I’ll definitely be doing that. What’s the corkage fee? Thanks!

    stuffycheaks, we have been going to Drago for years. For us there is no corkage, but we share wine with our servers. I would call the restaurant and check.
