Had a wonderful time at this quaint and authentic Italian restaurant. They happened to have truffles on the menu and boy what a treat! Absolutely delicious - exquisite. The service was very good - very attentive wait staff. Highly recommend if you are looking to eat outstanding, authentic Italian in a very romantic setting.Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse

Honestly... the best restaurant in LA. The thing I love about angelini is that they are always accommodating. As a vegetarian, its hard to find gourmet restaurants that will create amazing dishes for me. At angelini - every time I go, its a culinary experience. Make sure to take a stroll into the kitchen where you can find chef Ori Menashe. He is not only the best chef in LA but is super hot!Was this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I'm officially on the Angelini crack wagon. It hasn't even been 24 hours and I'm already craving to go back. I've been having a FML type of week and Angelini really knows how to satisfy a girl. Luckily I had the honor of coming with Erik (friend/neighbor/hunter/spearfisher) and he always raves about this place and sometimes he likes to bring in the fish/animals he's hunted for the chefs to prepare. Nothing like ea... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
First time there, but eaten at some great Italian restaurants, and it was good not great. Probably too popular, serve same dishes, and too many people. Suspect it was better 6 or 7 years ago. A restaurant is better at first when it experiments and is surprising. The dishes I ordered were recommended but didn't taste that extraordinary - e.g.. the lasagna verde, seemed slippery, didn't like ragu in it and the grilled ... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
First of all, this is an Osteria - it's not the Rex and it isn't Melisse. Second, the food is consistently marvelous. In my years of going to Angelini's, only once have had a meal that was not excellent. For example, my last meal started with a so-so sushi appetizer (how excited can one get about raw fish?), then launched into a series of delicious courses: foie gras with fava beans and spatzle; squid ink gnocchi... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I discovered Angelini's a few months after it opened in late 2001 - back in the day when you could walk in without reservations - to enjoy one of the best Italian meals that I have ever had here or in Italy. Exquisite unique primi, Mediterranean squid that was so soft that you could cut it with a fork alone, fabulous desserts, brillant service, a visit from the Chef to hear our raves about the food and service, and ... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
I had the pleasure of being introduced to Gino on my first visit; the friendly, hands-on approach to food and service has never waned in the years since. I've gone here consecutively for my past few birthdays - indicating that this isn't an inexpensive osteria, but for a special occasion it's worth every dime.\r The dining room is snug to begin with - do make a reservation - and the din can get borderline unbearable... view moreWas this review helpful?Yes No|Flag Abuse
