The food was delicious; however, the restaurant is small and we felt a bit cramped. You go there for the meal, not the ambiance.

Still one of the best
Angelini Osteria remains one of the top Italian dining spots in town. Order anything on the menu and you won't be disappointed. The green lasagna is a signature dish and the pumpkin tortelli melts in your mouth. Service is impeccable. Only complaint is that the dining room is small and the tables are a bit cramped. But I'm willing to put up with that for incredible food.

Went there for my birthday
Went there for my birthday last night and loved every moment of it. Great wine, scrumptious food, attentive staff - what else could I ask for. We'll definitely be going back.

Angelini's is the place for Lunch
My husband and I have been trying to go to Angelini's and found that getting dinner reservations is difficult. We have found a solution: go for lunch. We shared a pizza with burrata and fresh tomatoes that had a great oozy topping mingled with the fresh tomatoes on top of a crisp perfectly charred crust. We shared the turbot for two which was one of the most amazing pieces of fish I have eaten. It was prepared in a large roasting pan layered with potatoes that got crispy on top with cherry tomatoes, onions and olives. It had the most delicate flavor, sweet and moist. We had plenty of leftovers to take home and ate them over the weekend. We shared a marscapone cream with amaretti crushed cookies that made a perfect ending.

Mama Mia this is great!
Angelini Osteria is the perfect LA Italian.....I can do without huge places; this is intimate and like being in someone's kitchen.....

Pros in the room
When my friend was 20 mins late for lunch, the kitchen sent me out a delicious bowl of seafood soup, on the house, to make my wait more bearable. It was not asked for byt greatly appreciated. That's the kind of thoughtful gesture, on top of Angelini's already excellent food, that will keep me coming back.

I have been hearing tales of the mythical "Angelini Osteria"
for years and finally made it in. I am an unofficial Italian, and it was a flawless and satisfying experience. Everything was perfect - simple and delicious.

The Real Italian Bistro
If you want to eat superbly and avoid the scenes at the hordes Beverly Hills and West Hollywood Italians, Angelini Osteria is your place. I go for swordfish which is always done perfectly.

One of the Best
We had the good fortune to have a gift certificate from the restaurant for a chef's choice, four course, wine paired meal. We really didn't know what to expect as we had never been to Angelini's before. The restaurant is quite popular so we had to wait a bit for our table, but once we were seated, Alex and the entire crew treated us to an amazing dining experience. Each course was unique and delicious and a delightful surprise, each one even better than the last, and all were fantastic! I think we ended up having 7 courses, and each course was specially prepared for us. The chef outdid himself. We truly felt like royalty and look forward to returning to Angelini's.

Italian delight in a small package!
We had a delightful dinner at Angelini Osteria! The food is authentic italian from the mother country, and all four diners had delicious meals created from local produce. Some of the best prosciutto ever, and a truly marvelous spinach lasagna that melted in your mouth. The fish was extremely fresh and perfectly cooked, and the veal tortellini outstanding. The service was very attentive, and they provide a broad selection of wines at reasonable prices from international sources. The restaurant is a "discovered" neighborhood gem, so always packed which can be a little noisy. We loved it and would absolutely return!

Corner of Italy in LA
The welcoming servers, the menu, the ambiance, and most of all, the food come together to transport you are to an Osteria in Italy...with no jet lag. Angelini still one of the best Italian restaurants in our book. Weekday lunches can be nice as less crowds and noise.

Great Food and Value
The Osteria is small, but it works. The place was packed. Valet is $5 dollars.
We started with wine by the glass (nice stemware), and ordered the Zuchini Blossoms. A true favorite of mine. Presentation was perfect, yet I did not care for the filling. It was more than just ricotta...and the flavor was bland. Not sure why the chef kept the bitter Zuchini stem on it??? Very bitter. The red sauce just didn't work either.
We shared a bone marrow pasta.........out of this world with a nice presentation. Rustic.
Then the denver sole...........out of the world....lighted breaded...only slightly...sauce was perfect...mashed potatoes were also fluffy.
Cappuccino divine. Tiramisu could have been fresher.

Great place to go with a small group of people as it is a very small, tight venue. Fantastic pasta and the service was great! The waiters were very accommodating and flexible with menu alterations. As it is a small, popular spot, make sure you make reservations.

ITALIAN FOOD AT ITS BEST
I was so happy to get a reservation at this wonderful restaurant. Each dish was wonderful. True Italian cuisine!! The pastas were amazing, the veal dishes as well! The service was wonderful, we had a waiter with personality and charm. Can't wait to go back next time we are on LA!

We had tried for quite awhile to obtain a reservation for this restaurant and finally found one at 5:30 on a Friday. The restaurant is very small -- maybe 15 tables, maybe 40 seats. The food and service were excellent and the portions quite large. We had the shaved artichoke and arugula salad and the sliced swordfish appetizers. For entrees, the pork chop and the roasted veal shank. All were excellent. Traffic in the area is fierce and the drive time takes much longer -- even from the Westside.

A great experience
I had friends coming from San Diego for the day and was asked to pick a restaurant for lunch
They all eat out often and at very fine restaurants. Everyone agreed Angelina Osteria was a gem. From the moment we sat down the service was attentive bit not intrusive. We each had a different dish and everyone was top notch
Along with lunch we had a lovely whit wine that was suggested by our waiter and complimented each dish.
I live at the beach but will most certainly be back.

Lovely lunch at Angelini.
Really enjoyed our visit with family to Angelini Osteria last week. Reminded us of our meals in Italy - authentic Italian dishes made and served so graciously. Everything was appetizing and delicious, from the light faro salad that's served with their bread, to my lasagne verde (with ground veal). Service was charming and attentive, and lunch was very reasonable. We'll definitely visit again.

Justin did it right
We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to this lively restaurant. We shared a lobster salad--very fresh made with crisp apples. Next, came the perfectly cooked Florentine steak with wonderful sides.
The wine can be ordered by the carafe--a perfect choice for us.
Justin, the "busboy," but really, he is a man, and he was very attentive and charming. He filled in where the servers didn't.
Dessert was a disappointment, and it was Justinwgo made sure we had our coffee...Not the server!
Promote Justin--he should be earning big tips!
Last, this was to bea birthday celebration. The restaurant forgot that bit.
The overall quality of the place is excellent, and certainly, we hope to return.

Order the pasta
I mistakenly ordered the steak which is just stupid at a pasta restaurant. Pasta and flat bread are great. I wouldn't drench the salads in all that oil either. But overall I loved my experience.
