Usually I love this place but this wasn’t a great experience. Service was way off. Food was ok not great. The birthday was forgotten even though discussed with the host. One of our food items was forgotten.

It’s been a few years since I’ve eaten here but having gone this time I was underwhelmed. The food was good but not great. If you’ve eaten here before the pandemic then you’d know there was limited seating, however being put at a table outside practically down the street wasn’t an ideal scene. The table felt like it was on the sidewalk near Fairfax Ave. I get the outside seating but this was ridiculous. To be honest, I think the waiter Uber’d back and forth to serve our dishes. The cockroaches dancing around our table was a nice touch too. The strangers walking their dogs and random strangers blabbering to their friends walking through the sidewalk restaurant was romantic too. Again, I get they need to recoup their funds and make their food margins but this was out of control . If I wanted this type of experience I’d go eat at the Waffle House. We came starving otherwise we would have left the restaurant. The bread pudding was very good per Nayla and the waiter was kinda slow. All in all not a great experience at AO.

Loved sitting outside in the shade on a lovely Friday evening. The only issue is that we had a 3:45pm reservation, and the first thing the waiter said was "kitchen closes at 4pm". Well as you can imagine...we felt rushed to decide...and we did...and it was great, but a waiter in this type of place should not open with that statement. If the restaurant takes reservations that late then they should honor that reservation and not threaten the customer with a 4pm close. In other words, if closure at 4 is of prime importance to the restaurant...then they should stop taking reservations around 3 or 3:15. Otherwise, a great dining experience. A little pricey, but the food was very tasty.

Table service was excellent. There must have been problems in the kitchen because of the extraordinarily long time it took to have the food delivered. The seafood risotto was good, the lasagne was mediocre. The noise level was deafening - unbelievably loud from the kitchen and the music was generally far too loud. They need acoustic tiles on the ceiling. I realize it is challenging as we come back from Covid. Because of the price point, I have eaten there in the past for special occasions. The food has been outstanding. I will give them another chance in the future, but if it is a similar experience, I will not return.

What more needs to be said about Angelini? The same delicious lasagna that made it famous after all these years. They seem to love their regular customers and the owner is always there welcoming everybody. If I lived closer I'd eat there more often, too!

The food is okay! I love Italian food, my mom was a trained chef there. The Lasagna- I’ve had better and made it myself. The wine, I mean it was sliver. My friend got some shrimp pasta thing, for the price - it’s as basic at best. The Bruschetta was delicious. I came expecting to have dinner like I was in Rome. It’s better than Olive Garden but this isn’t the best Italian food ever. It’s somewhere between Olive Garden and the BEST. Idk, for the price, there’s better. I feel like your stand North Italia is in line with this place. Overrated. Service isn’t great- our food took for ever to come and our sever never asked any follow up questions- it seemed he had other folks he was concerned with. It’s loud and a small space.

Excellent overall experience. The service was top notch. The staff were all very nice and attentive (but not overly attentive). The food was also very good with healthy portions (we had the branzino, truffle pasta, salami board and penne with red sauce). It is pricey but we felt it was well worth the big bill. There is plenty of outdoor seating and the block is pretty trendy and people-watching friendly.

Wonderful experience with attentive service. My mom was very happy to have celebrated her birthday there. The only thing that was a bit misleading since no one told me...is that they bring out a beautiful tiramisu cake and sing happy birthday, which again was so sweet, but they don’t tell you that they are charging you for it. I don’t go out to celebrate birthdays much so the few times that I have, the restaurant has given the individual celebrating a nice little dessert for free. True not every restaurant does this, and no we were not expecting anything because again, we only came to eat the delicious food with no real thought as to whether anything special would be provided from the restaurant. I think it would of been courteous to just give me a heads up and say, “hey, we can do something special but we do charge for it”. Specially since they asked us if we wanted dessert and we originally said no. Besides this, everything was extremely lovely!

Delicious Italian food but not a great dining experience. The outdoor dining arrangements not ideal. Although some tables outside are well-situated and make for a very pleasant experience, most place you either at a table on Beverly Boulevard listening to the cars whizzing by or on an incline where the waiters whiz past all the time. The service was poorly paced; some items came very quickly, really too quickly, while it took ages before we received are main course. The problem may have been a very large party but it seems best to avoid this restaurant on Saturday night. The food is absolutely delicious from salad to dessert, and especially the pasta.

Food was excellent. Service was mediocre. Busers didn’t pay attention to who ordered what and kept putting everything down in the wrong place. No one ever informed us to scan a QR code to get the menu. Drinks took forever to be served. Food came quick. Everyone’s food was great. Dessert was excellent. Only at the end when we were working on the bill the waiter seemed ticked off that we hadn’t tallied it up yet, and had an attitude. Which seems odd, to be rude right when people are calculating your tip.

I had always loved the place. Went for my birthday (did not disclose it) and I was a little underwhelmed this time.
Food was good. Truffle pasta excellent. Filet good. Salad tasteless.
Service. Felt like we were a bother. Rushed.

Very Disappointed!

Like everyone else it was our first time out in a year. My family was in town and wanted to take them out to a nice dinner. I had been here a few times before pandemic. The restaurant seems busier then ever. Tables going far down the block. I had requested to sit inside, but when the host was ready to seat us, she took us to the address next door down the block inside what felt like an old storefront no longer in use after covid, and was now taken over by the busy restaurant. It did not have the same warm dimly lit cozy restaurant feel like next door. The lights were way too bright, and it was dead silent. There were a few extra chairs in the room pushed against the wall. They most likely use the space for storage. The lady who sat us was nice enough to come back halfway through our meal and offer to put on some Italian music for us, which she controlled from her sell phone. but when she left for the evening it was dead silent again. The food was ok but not as good as I remember and didn’t make up for the lack of ambiance. Risotto should be creamy, but ours was very dry. They use to have a mascarpone dessert that was the best thing ever, but it’s no longer available. Honestly I regret not complaining, but I just wanted to have a stress free night out with my family. Instead we probably won’t be back.
