Italian
In October 2001, he opened his own restaurant, Angelini Osteria, in the heart of Los Angeles. Since its opening, Angelini Osteria has become known as simply everyone’s favorite Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, winning over the city with unassuming and authentic dishes in a warm, intimate setting. In late 2016, Gino opened Angelini Alimentari, an ode to the classic Italian coffee bar serving house-made gelato, espresso, and simple, fresh dishes. At Alimentari Gino Angelini launched his specialty food product line with the introduction of the Osteria’s signature pasta sauces. Throughout the years, Gino has won numerous honors for his culinary artistry, including the 2007 Artusi Award, the 2011 Galvanina Trophy for Best Chef of the Year, and the 2011 Sigismondo Malatesta d’Oro, the highest civilian award of his home city of Rimini. He is consistently praised by patrons and critics as “the best Italian chef in Los Angeles.”

Probably the best dinner I’ve ever had, if not one of the best. We had the bone marrow, white truffle pasta, and the duck. The white truffle was pricey but decadent and worth it. Everything was worth it. We ended with a Carrot cake and they sang to my boyfriend for his birthday. We had a wonderful time. The only issue is that the seating is a bit tight.

Always a pleasure, true Italian place where food is the star and pretense doesn't exist.

The service was great but the food was a bit salty for our taste. This is my second time eating at this restaurant and was surprised by the saltiness. Didn’t remember it being like this when we were there the first time. I still recommend it and am planning to go again but will make sure to ask for the food to be less salty...

As usual, Angelini Osteria, the most welcoming Italian restaurant in Los Angeles. Delicious food, from the salads, pasta, pizza, fish and dessert. 5-Star. 19 years of the best...Thank you Gino and Gino.

I took a close friend for a celebratory birthday lunch. Wonderful! Delicious food, knowledgable, fun and courteous service. Because it was lunch we got extra attention, it was quiet and easy to talk. I love Angelini Osteria.

I intend to return to the restaurant because I have heard so many great things about the food and the service and I want to give it a second chance. I found the service to be wonderful. We were a very large party and they were able to accommodate beautifully. I did order the Lasagna Verde and found it to be rather bland. I smothered the lasagna with freshly grated parmesan and it was still bland.

Very poor service. Other tables offered bread and amuse buche, not ours. Vegetables arrived ten minutes later than entree. Not acceptable at a restaurant with $50 entrees.

Our server was wonderful and patiently explain several items on the menu. We had the lasagna Verdi and the Risotto which was beautifully done! Finished the night with their delicious Tiramisu. Bravo to the chef on an outstanding dinner! Will certainly be coming back for more.

Highly friendly italian restaurant with personal service presents a large menu of both standard, modern and special italian specialties as well as some steaks and chops. Salt-baked Branzino is my favorite. Great wine list. Skip desert and amble next door to get a cup of gelato.

The food was great as usual. But the service needs improvement. There are only limited seats indoor but there are way too many servers so you feel like you are being rushed to finish your food. Our server in particular didn’t come by and ask if we are doing ok. Instead, we need to reach out to get water refilled and our salad was taken away without being asked while we are still not finished. I told our waiter we are still working on it but was ignored.
