Centanni Trattoria

Centanni is one of the few true Italian trattorias in Los Angeles. This little hidden gem in Venice is excellent! Grant, our server started our dining experience with a smile and wishes for an amazing dinner. Nothing wrong with that! Needless to say; he delivered! We were greeted by the lovely owners, Alex Paez and his wife Helen Wassell-Paez and seated right away in the quaint dining room. We started with a glass of Fourteen Hands Chardonnay. ($8) Wine prices are very fair here and there is a great selection of reds and whites by the glass. You can bring your own wine too. We were excited to taste chef Marin Santos' (former chef at Valentino and Dolce) Italian cooking. Dinner began with the sauteed shrimp. ($6) Would it be rude to say that we resembled Jack Spratt and his wife as we licked the platter clean? Honestly? This is some of the freshest, most delectable plump garlicky shrimp I have ever eaten! Dip the grilled bread served alongside into the garlic sauce and you'll be in heaven. The bruschetta ($5), is a hearty portion of fresh Italian bread topped with juicy tomatoes, garlic, and cheese. Be sure to check for the special bruschetta offered frequently. This plate got emptied too. R had the Minestrone soup ($4.95) and Pollo Piccata ($13.50) with mashed potatoes. Soup was fresh and homemade loaded with vegetables.The chicken's lemon caper sauce was zesty and buttery.  Two large chicken breasts were moist and tender. I had the Spaghetti Aglio e Olio ($9.50) with garlic, green onions, olive oil, and Pecorino cheese. (Add chicken, salmon, or shrimp for $4) How can a simple dish be so delicious? I don't know so I had to ask the Alex,  who was happy to tell me. The owners are delightful people. This is truly one of my top five favorites! Parking is on the side (3 spaces on Nowita Place) or on side streets. Call for reservations or book through OpenTable.com.  Centanni Trattoria 1700 Lincoln Blvd. Venice (310)314-7275
