I had dinner at Ca' Brea last night after some months. The service was good, but the food was extremely disappointing. The Carpaccio appetizer for example contained hardly any meat, and this minimal quantity was of bad quality with an unpleasant taste. The shaved parmesan was not ""parmiggiano grana"" but cheap un-aged parmesan. The only good thing on the plate was an abundance of fresh arugala salad, but this was not worth the $16 price tag.
I love this place because food is sooooo gooood....I love their gnocchi, tortelloni stuffed with ricotta and pumpkin ravioli with walnut sauce. WOW... I knew that this place had great Italian food and been coming here for several years now... I recently visited Italy for the 1st time and loved the food there.. I now appreciate Ca Brea even more as it reminds me of some of the meals I had in Italy... Check it out as you will not be disappointed.

We've been coming here for years, before they remodeled. I even had my b-day banquet here once...they NEVER disappoint! My favorite fish dish at Ca Brea is a special which they have every so often - it's a white fish baked in parchment paper, with tomato-caper sauce (another fave). This dish is divine! When they don't have it, I go for the addictive pumpkin ravioli in decadent creamy walnut sauce - comfort food at it's best! Oh, and the ""crema di vaniglia"" dessert is one of the best sweets I've ever had - the 1st time I tried it, I was willing to fall at the chef's feet in humble praise!
