Pasta was cooking and the sauces were slowly cooking. As it was ready, they served it still “al dente”. That’s real poetry for an Italian man who misses the flavors of Italy, and finally I found those flavors here in Los Angeles.
I could write so much about how happy I was while I saw the pasta finally cooked “al dente” here in Los Angeles instead of the usually sticky mush a lot of restaurants serve, but I don’t want to talk about pasta, you will have to find out how it is by yourself. I want to talk about the Porchetta Sandwich that really got me hooked up.
The bread was the right one, not too soft, not too hard, the pork meat was flavored and well cooked, and the Jalapeño added that spicy note that everyone will enjoy. The generous crunchy piece of pork added on the top of all was finally the ticket to heaven for your taste buds.
What can I add to all this? Well the only thing that comes to my mind is the kindness and patience (even though I interrupted them so many time for the photos!) of all the guys working at Cento Pasta Bar.
So, in conclusion, if you didn’t already, take a moment to visit this small piece of Italy downtown Los Angeles and enjoy some REAL italian food.
