Enzo & Angela

Enzo & Angela is a neighborhood Italian restaurant in Brentwood. The food is great, and the best thing about this place is the hilarious host who comes by and cracks jokes to ensure that you have a smile on your face throughout your meal. He got a kick out of Justin on this visit because Justin inadvertently made multiple Open Table reservations (1 for our original time, and another when we realized we'd be late because street parking was tough and we didn't want to valet). Seriously, why do LA strip malls have valets? It's so silly to me.
Well no matter that it took awhile to park, because we immediately got warm fresh bread with this awesome tomato topping.
The restaurant has delicious olive oil, and the chopped tomatoes they bring out with bread are infused with the oil, plus basil and garlic.
The tomato dip made its way onto my entree as well :) I got the salmon salad with capers. They are very generous with the salmon here (definitely met my omega 3 quota for the day), and it's grilled and seasoned to perfection.
Justin got linguini diavola which came with grilled chicken. I hadn't had a diavola sauce with a white wine sauce before, and this was very good. It had enough red pepper flakes to justify its title.
We were both members of the clean plates club tonight, and we even used the rest of the bread to soak up Justin's remaining red pepper flakes and white wine sauce.
And we couldn't resist dessert. E&A really does sorbet right. They have mango, pineapple, and coconut, and they serve the sorbet inside the fruit shell. We went for the coconut topped with some cinnamon for good measure.
