Drago Centro has it all -- except for a crowd

Times Restaurant Critic S. Irene Virbila on Drago Centro:

This is a seriously good restaurant that exudes urban chic. It’s got views, a glamorous downtown setting, a private dining room with a demonstration kitchen in a former bank vault, and, most importantly, the best Italian cooking downtown in the area, and some of the best anywhere in L.A.

But where are the crowds?

Virbila gives it 2 1/2 stars. Here's a photo gallery look at the restaurant, and its signature dishes.

Have you been to Drago Centro? How many stars do you give it? And care to hazard a guess as to why there's not a line out the door?
