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.”

Everything was okay but nothing was memorable. Great quality ingredients. Had the sea urchin pasta and the salmon which were both solid but not worth the extra trouble to go. Surprise was the pizza my nephew had- really good. I think i’d go to the more casual next door next time, if ever.

Perfect dinner/date spot for any important occasion. Well worth the price for how good the food is. Our server was also outstanding and very patient when we asked questions about the menu and wine list. Only slight problem was that we were seated 20-25 min after our reservation time but that wasn't a big issue and I will be coming back for sure.

Of the best food and ambience in LA. Food is amazing and people who work there create a relaxed vibe. It’s kind of like going over to your family’s house for dinner on a holiday except there isn’t a cranky aunt or uncle! Great food!!

The pasta we ordered wasn't the usual hot from the kitchen. I know it had been sitting for about 10 min. Better to go when it's a packed house and the kitchen has to get all the orders out and not let it sit. We were there when they just opened and few tables were occupied.

It had been a while since I had been to Angelini but the food was amazing and the service was outstanding! For a Monday night the place was jammed. Definitely not going to wait too long to go back!

It was a great experience once again! We love this place and will be back again. Food is awesome as always! For the noise level I said it was quiet, cos we were sitting outside. If we would have sitting inside, then is it a bit noise.

This might be the best Italian restaurant in terms of food quality and perfect taste outside of Italy. The service was exceptional and people that are really Italian actually work there. The wine list was also very good... and many smaller producers. If I lived in LA I would go here every week. Bravo!

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.

My wife is a native of Italy. She said it was like being home in Italy. I had the swordfish and it was superb. My wife had the branzino (European sea bass) and she loved it. They filleted it at the table. The wine selection was excellent. The service was first-rate. It is a smaller place, so book early. We so enjoyed it.

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...
