Second Wine Bingo night I've attended. It is so much fun and informative too. I highly recommend it. I'm gluten free by necessity, so it is such a dream to be able to dine gf with such fabulous food. One of the players said he and his date weren't gf but were happily surprised at how wonderful the food was.

About the restaurant
The married team of Cinzia and Bruno Morra came to the United States in 1985 with the intention to share their culture with Los Angeles. Today,the family opened up Brunello Trattoria and expands their empire to the eastern edge of Culver City to turn out solid southern Italian food. Cinzia, the chef, manages the kitchen and prepares fresh pasta sauces that are made to order and Bruno and son, Daniele run the dining room. Pictures of Naples give the restaurant a traditional feel, while the central bar offers a social dining option. Come in and join us for lunch or dinner to meet the family and experience real homemade Italian food!

My husband, mother-in-law and I ate at Brunello after arriving at LAX from out of town. We have eaten there a number of times and are never disappointed. This visit was no exception. It is a family establishment and they take great pride in their food and service. This visit my husband ordered a mango salad special that had perfectly ripe fruit and a great dressing. His main course, a tomato, olive halibut special with basil mashed potatoes was outstanding according to my husband, The fish was cooked perfectly - not overdone as so often in restaurants. My mother-in-law had the salmon dish which she loved. I was delighted to find that veal marsala was a special. The sauce was so delicious, I wiped it up with bread and the veggies were cooked perfectly. No room for dessert this trip, but we have had it there before and it was the perfect end to the meal.

About the restaurant
Sushi Enya is a Japanese sushi restaurant that first opened in the heart of Little Tokyo in Downtown, LA. After five years of perseverance and experimentation in Downtown, LA, we opened our second location in beautiful Old Town Pasadena.
Our third location, which opened in 2018, is located in the beach city of Marina Del Rey.

Our owner Chef Kimiyasu Enya trained for over 10 years in Japan to perfect his craft.

It is our goal to ensure that quality remains consistent and every experience is enjoyable for all guests.

Always love Enya, and the MDR location has the perfect low-key, relaxed but nice vibe for a date night or a special dinner. The chef's at the omakase bar always remember repeat customers and the whole staff os supper-friendly and attentive. The omakase is a great value with a very filling menu of classics and some Enya specials with top-tier ingredients like truffle, wagyu, caviar, uni, etc. We'll be back soon!
