The food was wonderful. We enjoyed every single dish!!! The service was a bit slow and our waiter checked on us maybe twice during the 2.5 hour duration.

Had my anniversary dinner here last night and didn't have a great experience, maybe it was an off night. They called me and texted 3 times the day before and the day of to confirm my reservation. I thought it was bizarre to check that frequently but They were aware it was my anniversary so it led me to believe they were going to do something particularly nice for us. Ironically, we got terrible service and got sat at a table on a ramp next to the tarp in an odd corner of the restaurant. Some highlights - the octopus salad and lemon pasta were fantastic. But Skip the ribeye and dry carrot cake.


TLDR - terrible service, my Rec is get the octopus salad to go

First time eating here. Good outdoor seating, but make sure to dress warm (which they suggest upon reservation. Service was very friendly, which always makes a restaurant worth going back to. The food, honestly is average. Nothing to complain about but nothing memorable either. The desserts are their strongest area on the menu.
It is a nice casual eatery to relax in and I will try it again.

Came on a Monday at 1pm and they were out of a lot of dishes, specially the seafood, due to how busy they were over the weekend so Mondays aren't the best days to come

had requested inside table, that was not saved. The temperature dropped and the heaters were not working. They were kind enough to offer blankets. But not the experience we expected.

Basic service like water and bread were ignored, despite several requests. Simple request for a soft drink was overlooked and ignored.

The restaurant seems to be triple in size by adding all the outdoor seating but the kitchen is the same small size and there didn’t seem to be enough trained staff to handle the dinner service. Unfortunately a disappointing service experience

It was okay - first time back since pandemic started
Had reserved an inside table and they sat us way down Beverly a block from the kitchen at a table for two (there were three of us) could not eat without stuff falling off the table - plenty of empty tables - not sure what was going on - wait person disappeared for a while- not sure would go back

Angelini is fantastic … delicious food, terrific staff, and easy going but nice atmosphere. Every dish was carefully prepared and tasty. Philippe was an engaging server. This is a new favorite for us.

The food here is amazing. Let's start with the crispy bread that comes out first - so yummy. We had three orders of the Insalata Tricolore. So yummy and delicious with lots of color! Next we had Dover Sole Romagna Style (great dish but I was left still hungry and saw what my friend had the Spinach Pappardelle Fresh Porcini Mushrooms and had to order this too!!) My husband had the Lamb Chops Scottadito which he said was delicious. Everyone's plates were cleaned so we loved it! We will defiantly be back.

Our waiter was strange. My husband sneezed (covering his mouth of course - and we told him we were all vaccinated!!) and the waiter jumped back like 20 feet and after that never really got close to the table again. We thought this was so strange and really alienated us from him and our experience with the food. He just didn't really do the check-ins again to see how everything was going. We met the owner who we LOVED! We will be back!

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!
