Ordered the fish recommended by waiter and it was fresh and perfectly cooked but not tons of flavour
Terrific food beautifully prepared and served. We love this place and would eat here once a week if we could get a table. The hostess was especially thoughtful.
Food was okay not the best. Very casual. Would not recommend it to a friend
Overall the food was good but the tables and seats were too closely packed together. I barely had enough room to move my arms because the table next to us was so close. Every time the waiters or other people walked by I was afraid that they would run into our tiny table and spill our drinks. I had to constantly move and get up anytime someone had to leave or go to the restroom. That continual disruption completely ruined my dining experience. I was looking forward to dining here because I had waited a long time for a reservation but was disappointed by the service and discomfort of the dining area. This restaurant needs to figure out how to accommodate a limited amount of people so diners don't feel crowded and claustrophobic and can actually enjoy their meals.
I'm always amazed and impressed with the food, service and variety at Angelini Osteria. The food is FABULOUS! The service is PERFECTION! And the variety of seasonal menu items is IMPRESSIVE! This is a hidden gem...you've got to experience this taste of true Italian hospitality.
I felt like I dropped into Italy! The food was spectacular!
We had the black truffle pasta and pizza!
Definitely worth going!
Overall great experience. Loved the branzino. Service can improve, but not bad.
Always an outstanding meal...have been going to Angelini Osteria for years because it is so special.
Exceptional food and service as always! We highly recommend this restaurant.
Angelini Osteria is always absolutely amazing, great food, very authentic, attentive service, the best ingredients used with care to make some of the best Italian food in Los Angeles. This is one of the few restaurants I can always recommend, consistently great in both service and food everytime.
just plain great and consistent!!!!
we have been back so many times when visiting LA and this place never disappoints.
a true must for good food
I've been trying to get a reservation at this restaurant for quite some time. I can tell you it was worth the wait. The octopus salad was amazing. I got the lasagna and my wife got the Branzino which was boned at the table and excellent. The apple tart was also excellent. Service great and we will return. Enjoy!
Gino Angelini brought true and truly great & authentic Italian cuisine to Los Angeles and too many years to count later, he is still the Deacon of Italian cooking in LA and this restaurant still stands tall and above the other 1st rate Italian restaurants in LA. For this 3 hour lunch the 4 of us had 2 wonderful antipasti...grilled calamari; frito misto; 2 terrific pastas including an amazing uni tagliatelle; 4 great mains, whole branzino & Dove sole; veal chop milanese & lamb chops all done with Gino still in the kitchen overseeing the cooking. Combine this with a terrific but compact wine list that runes from great champagne to a host of great Italian whites & reds. As good as it's ever been and it's been great forever. Make your reservation, go and enjoy.
Best northern Italian food in L.A. Like dining in Italy.
Closest thing to feeling like I was back in Italy in Los Angeles. But still with the LA high prices. The food was excellent. I'll be back for more.
This is our very favorite restaurant... because the servers treat us well... because the ingredients are so fresh ( who supplies their dill?)... because it is honestly better than any meal we had in Tuscany.
Best Italian food ! Great service ! Coffee is very good too.
One of the best Italian restaurant in LA. The truffle with handmade spaghetti was excellent.
I frequent Angelini and I have rarely experienced a better Italian meal. Everything on the menu is genius for the pallet and leaves a great dining memory. It's a must!.
Angelini Osteria is a staple! I love that it’s still family owned, which makes the service just that more genuine. It brings me back to when my husband and I honeymooned in Italy. Amazing.
Excellent food - we ordered the swordfish carpaccio and beef tartare for appetizers. We shared the homemade spaghettI Chitarra alla Norcina with a generous amount of black truffles shaved in front of us. Even the complimentary soup and pasta (?) salad were very delicious. Great service too! The servers made us feel welcome. Highly recommend this place.
Wonderful restaurant- exquisite food.
Could do something about acoustics - noise level very very high. But otherwise- fantastic energy.
I had not been in about a year so was excited to take a new co-worker. She had heard about the restaurant, had always wanted to go but need to go with a foodie (me). She had lived in Italy for years and wanted an authentic experience. She got that an more - Awesome
The food is always good, but this was my first time here for a business lunch. The service rushed us so much we wondered if they were trying to turn the table over in time for a second lunch in our place. Given our 12:30pm reservation time there was very little chance of someone else taking our table for a late lunch mid-week. So I'm left not really understanding the fast pace at which the waiters tried to take our order and the speed at which our food was delivered. Pacing is important and at least for this one lunch they lost sight of that fact.
My Branzino was uncomplicated and wonderful. 👍👍👍
It's difficult for us to distinguish between good and excellent Italian food. My wife loved her pasta. My scallops, mushrooms, and balsamic was very good although there was too much sauce (leaving a puddle in the bottom of the bowl).
The staff was very friendly.
They have a very large menu with something for everyone. If we lived in the area, it would be one of our go-to places.
All good except server did not check us in so we got the open table email about not showing.
Great lunch with several complimentary appetizers. Ordered lasagna verde, radicchio salad, branzino which was ski fully prepared tableside. Everything was superb. Stopped at Alimentari next door afterwards for more ice cream.
Excellent service, food was fantastic as always and just a great location with an intimate dining experience.
Simply the best/most authentic Italian food in town (i'm from Europe so i believe i can tell!)
I haven't been to Angelini Osteria in years and now I know that I've truly been missing out. The entire meal was just incredible. The waiter guided us to the best appetizers and entrees - my only regret was that we didn't order more pasta. This may have just become my new favorite restaurant.
One of the few authentic Italian restaurants in LA and the food, ambiance and service outstanding.
THE FOOD AND SERVICE ARE AMAZING. The room (at lunch anyway) is crowded and WAY too noisy and loud. It's very very hard to have a conversation.
For $$ to $$ its does not live up to the hype
Bad table next to the bar! No space! Overpriced lamb chops 3 chops lots of arugula! 45 $!
Beef carpaccio without any dressing, no lemon, no oil!
The pasta with butter and Parmesan cheese was mad without any love!
Tagliolini al Limone not enough flavor, no salt, no fresh pepper no basil!
Waiter not really interested in our opinion about the food!
Maybe because we were only tourists!
Great food and service. The best Italian restaurant in town.
Best Italian food in Los Angeles! The home made pasta melts in your mouth. Risotto is al dented perfectly cooked with delicious fresh seafood. Salad we ordered had the right amount of pistachios for texture and a delicious perfectly balanced dressing!
Best Italian meal I have had in some time....varied choices but everything was fresh, well prepared and very tasty.
Service was excellent...went for a late lunch.
Wonderful food and friendly services. Best Italian restaurant!
Grilled squid is excellent, beer burrata salad is quite good, pasta is among the best I have ever had, excellent Italian fare. I am not a big fan of European way of preparing fish; so their branzino tastes bland to me, but similar to fish from other high end European restaurants.
