angelini osteria review in oct. 3rd l.a. times

i'm surprised no one posted about this.

i'm sad to say it's been quite a while since my last visit, but i've always enjoyed excellent meals there. has it really deteriorated that much?

  1. The stunning silence after this review was noted. Perhaps the shock was too great! Just returned from lunch there--it was terrific as usual; spectacular tagliolini neri with clams, and delicious oxtail. Nothing has changed. Great service. Lovely people.

    1. Just read the article. I am new to LA and I made a reservation for angelini osteria in a few weeks. I went to osteria mozza last week, and the pizzeria a few months before. I loved both of them. My questions is: Should I make a reservation at the sister restaurant La Terza? OR should I stick with Angelini. I am trying to explore the many ITalian restarurants in LA..

        As our beloved and thankfully gone Secretary of Defense would have said: the answer is YES.
        You should make a res. at Terza AND stick with Angelini as well.

          I went to Angelini Osteria last night and it was divine!!! WE loved every dish. We also went to Mozza (both the pizzeria and osteria), and I preferred Angelini. THere was a great amount of wines to choose from. I had the most flavorful veal milanese!! Perfectly cooked. MY husband had the halibut. I tried it, and it was bursting with flavor. My friend had the porchetta. I loved the way the presented it. I started with a half order of the corkscrew pasta with cherry tomatoes and spinach. Excellent dish, al dente of course. WE finished with some great deserts. I really enjoyed the torte della nonna. IT was a perfect meal and I can not wait to try La Terza. WE also didnt feel felt like we were "dining"!
