Caught up with my university group mates over dinner, and we decided on La Braceria Pizza And Grill, known for its authentic Italian food. 

Finding the restaurant was a challenge. Located in the suburbs of Greenwood, at Greenwood Avenue, La Braceria Pizza And Grill is hidden behind a wall of plants, effectively blocking their signage and storefront. And at night, the road that runs alongside it is totally dark, making it easy to miss. I actually walked by La Braceria Pizza And Grill twice, before I finally found the entrance between two plants. 

This is definitely not a restaurant you can stumble upon easily, and so, La Braceria Pizza And Grill is relatively quiet and perfect for romantic dates or quiet dinners. 

We had 2 pizzas, the Alla Bismark, and the Alla Braceria. The pizzas were tasty, and I particularly like the poached egg in the middle of the Alla Braceria. The ingredients were fresh, although a little more of it would have been nice. 

We also tried the Ravioli Della Casa, a hand-made ravioli pasta stuffed with cheese. While I appreciate the effort to make it, the portion size was more like an appetizer than an entree, and served on a big plate, it just looked underwhelming. It did score points on taste however, and I recommend it for sharing among friends, more than as a main course. 

I tried the house wine that day, and I absolutely hated it. Tasted exactly like cheap wine... Bitter, and not aged. Should have gone with the other wines available. 

Will try their pasta and anti-pasta some other time, though I'll probably only visit this place for special occasions rather than regular dining.
