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.”

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.

You have to respect a chief who, especially at his age, is in the kitchen and actually working. I was even making pizza.

Enjoyed everything about Angelini... from Daniela at the front, to our server who was quite knowledgeable about the menu
we enjoyed grilled sausage and a chopped salad for starters and then the spaghetti Norma (OMG..the best)al dente and the Lasagna "Omaggio Nonna Elvira baked to perfection ...
My one (not so happy)criticism was our carafe of wine (not inexpensive at all) was warm
However, overall, there is a reason that this restaurant is so celebrated...MANGIA TUTTI MANGIA

The restaurant is small and cozy. Service was attentive and friendly. We started with the braised baby artichokes which were unbelievably good. I was so surprised that such a simple dish could be so outstanding.

For my main I ordered the fresh pasta limone. Wow! The sauce was so light yet still super creamy.

My friend ordered the veal agnolotti which was superb.

I would 100% go back and probably even order the same dishes! The wine was great and fairly priced because it’s offered in carafe sizes as well.

The Antipasti Octopus salad was overcooked and portions of it were burnt. The pasta was uncooked and so raw that it stuck to my molars every time I took a bite. I was there for my 1 yr wedding anniversary that I didn't want to make a fuss about it, all we wanted to do was to hurry up and leave. The food is pricy and their service sucks!! The Manager seemed to be somewhat stressed out with his waiters which showed his unprofessionalism during dinner time rush hour. We ended up in McDonald's and much to our surprise the Big Mac was a lot tastier, better, and cheaper. The Manager was friendlier and seemed stress free. WARNING!! DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY HERE.
