Sprazzo - last night

WLA | Apr 7, 200403:37 PM

This was something like our fourth visit to this little neighborhood Italian place, (basically across the street from Border's Books on Westwood Blvd. in Westwood, and practically next door to Pomodoro). We have been to Pomodoro in the past and La Bruchetta, but the only one we return to is Sprazzo.

I am not saying it will change your life, but it is cute, the service is good and the food is reasonable for what it is. My wife found a pasta dish she loves, Chicken and Broccoli in a light cream sauce, and sticks with it. She is a pain in the butt when it comes to her pasta being cooked al dente, and Sprazzo has not incurred her considerable wrath, (I should know how considerable...only kidding dear) on that front as yet.

I had a chicken breast with a white wine sauce that was topped with green olives and a couple of thinly sliced lemon pieces that I cut and ate along with the chicken and olives. It thought it was very good. My only complaint, as I often have with chicken breast out, is that places tend to overcook chicken breast to keep from getting sued for food born illness, and this was another example of that particular problem. It is served with a vegetable, (in this case thickly cut, sauteed zucchini, and oven roasted potatoes. Along with two salads, a Bass ale and a coke the tab was $51, plus tip.

They have a very impressive wine list, at least by my admittedly very limited knowledge of wine, and have supposedly won some award from the Wine Spectator magazine.
