Flies at outdoor dining was bothersome. Waiter forgot our truffle pizza until we reminded him. Polipo was really good.

This is my second time here. I came back after having the truffle pasta. It was so good I had to try more items on the menu. This time I got the swordfish carpaccio, the pasta alla carbonara and then the tiramisu for dessert. I had a chianti to drink. Overall fantastic. The swordfish: some bites were a little fishy, but most were not. Heated slices of fish and still a little rare. Flavors were delicate and delightful. Would get again. Pasta again was divine. Perfectly cooked pasta with the perfect bite and chew. I loved the guanciale in place of pancetta. Sooo much better. And no peas. I much prefer it this way! I overheard someone at the next table who had ordered the dish say the pepper was too much for her. I completely disagree with her. Pepper is one of the main ingredients in this dish and therefore should stand out. I don't love pepper and I thought the seasoning was en pointe. Tiramisu was heavenly. Can't go wrong with carbs and cream. I had the same waiter as last time. I love him. Very pleasant and attentive. The place is busy but staff is always available to assist.

The food is excellent. Caprese snd garlic bread to die for. Fabulous pastas and the best Tiramisu ever‼️. Paper napkins not acceptable with these prices. Not serving lunch inside is sad because the street is extremely noisy and it looks dirty. White tablecloths would make a huge difference in the ambiance. Service was great as well!

You will not be disappointed. We were all very happy with our dinner and experience. Service was great. And for anyone with any gluten intolerance or celiac disease, they offer gluten free pasta.

The service is really spectacular. The best I have experienced in a long time. Helpful, competent & friendly.

My friend & I shared an appetizer that was stuffed zucchini blossoms. Excellent. I had the Pasta alla Norma. The pasta itself was cooked perfectly & delicious. But the presentation wasn't. And I can make it better at home. That was a huge disappointment. I was hoping to learn how to up my sauce. It was not well seasoned.

My friend's dish was a meat ragu. It was tasty. Again pasta was perfect but presentation uninviting.

I'd eaten here years ago & loved it. I've had take-out in recent months & thought it wonderful. Maybe it was because it was a busy Friday?

Everything was good except that I indicated it was for a birthday when I made the reservation on here and I was expecting at least a candle on the dessert we actually ordered and paid for, but there were none. it wasn’t like I was expecting a free dessert, but just some old fashioned happy birthday sing-along with a candle yet it was overlooked apparently.

We went to celebrate our son's birthday. The food and service was very good. The wine list was very limited regarding the white wines (Pinot Grigio in particular). Maybe being closed for so long because of the pandemic, have had an impact in the available wine bottles to offer.
Any way over all we had a very good evening.

We’ve been going to Angelini since 2005 even though we live in Houston! It never disappoints. The extra COVID precautions made the inside feel spacious which is not easy. Great wine list compliments the delicious food. Hope to see you soon!

we had a great dinner at Angelini Osteria. Our serve Mehdi was great, very friendly. The steak was exceptional, better than Cut. The appetizers were ok. The Tiramasu was also very good. Overall a good dinner.

Angelini’s is our go-to restaurant when we are in LA. We have family there who first introduced us and we come back every chance we get. If you are looking for delicious, authentic Italian with attentive service and a relaxed vibe, you’ll find it at Angelini’s.

I hold this place to a high standard. Consistently one of the best Italian restaurants in town. Good was very good. Service was spotty, almost indifferent. We ordered a veal bone marrow. It was served without proper spoon or bread.

Pre pandemic all seating was indoors. Now they’ve taken over adjacent out door and they’re serving many more diners. It all feels rushed and chaotic. At these prices and level, staff should be more attentive.

Forget going to A steak house for a ribeye. This is my favorite spot for a perfectly grilled steak. Best spinach lasagna, which they are famous for and don’t forget the lightly fried stuffed squash blossoms to start while they are still in season.

I can’t believe the hype. As big foodies, my husband and I were very much NOT impressed. They gave us udon noodles with our truffle pasta and their starter bread was more Mediterranean than Italian. Probably won’t go back.

While once we got seated, we waited 25 minutes for our table, and the attention of our waiter, the service by him was good.

However, I think it is time for them to go back to their regular volume and service inside with a small outdoor area. It is unglamorous and ugly to sit in the side alley on the wheel chair ramp.
In addition, we waited over one hour between courses. This is unacceptable to me.

The food was very good but I do not want to spend almost 4 hours having dinner. We arrived at 7:15 and got home at 10:55. I live 15 minutes from the restaurant.

Sorry to be brutally honest but that's how I feel.

The best place to cure your hunger ... the chef is superb, from Limone pasta, gorgeous octopus grilled to perfection, scrumptious chopped salad plus perfectly grilled rib eye and sauteed spinach. A perfect meal. So delicious

Great food however service was spotty we waited around 40 mins and didnt even get an apology (first told us table was getting set then told us table customers still eating and will be a little longer). Once we sat down we didnt get a sense of who was our server as it seemed like two different people came up to ask for our order. The bus boys asked us three times if we wanted water and then our bottles (one was opened) did not get poured by server. Once we ordered everything improved a bit and food was great but inconsistent service left a lot to be desired. Prob won't go back and wont recommend.

The food was good, not amazing as I had heard. Service was lacking…. Multiple times the water glasses sat empty for a long time. We had long stretches of time no one checking on the table and had to flag someone down for the check and then walk it over to have someone let us pay the bill. Once things got busy it seemed they needed more staff & we had hoped for top notch service but we did not receive it.

We have been going to thus place in the last 4 years and as always the service is great, from the time we get seated to the time I pay my check

Everyone is very attentive, food is great…we have tried almost everything in the menu but our favorites, for appetizer Pizza Margherita (spicy anduja…), Ahi Tuna tartar, grilled calamari and caprese…first course Tagliolini Limone (to die for) and House made spaghetti chitara….t he en finally Branzino, lamb chops, prime rib and bistecca

Make sure to make room fir dessert.. Panna Cotta my favorite and Tiramisu with my wife…just tried their bread pudding and Profiteroles to switch it up and OMG!!!

This was my third visit this month and my first for dinner. Though the food was good overall (tricolore salad, Dover sole and ribeye steak) the kitchen has a very heavy hand with the salt. Both my steak and my friend's sole were too salty, as was a previous meal I had. The service was polite but extremely slow--the entrees took so long to arrive that I thought our order had been lost. On the plus side, the fish and steak were nicely cooked, and because I ordered my steak rare it came the just way I wanted it-- medium rare.

The always-delightful Angelini impressed again, this time for lunch. Even on a very hot day, the umbrella-laden courtyard kept cool with elegant, easy fare to match.

If you have not tried this LA gem for lunch, go ye forth and dine!

I enjoyed the food so much and reasonably priced. Will go back again soon! Filippo served us, and it was like visiting your favorite uncles kitchen and keeps feeding you good food. I always admire waiters who doesn’t use pen and paper to take orders because they know it by heart and not messing around.
