Angelini Osteria

  • g

Went on Saturday night for the first time.

Pros: Excellent Wine List and prices (they will also waive $15 corkage for every bottle bought off list), very friendly service (kid friendly too), antipasto (esp. beans w/sausage and salumi plate).

Cons: A little noisy, uncomfortable chairs. As is usually the case w/Italian restaurants, the main courses are worse than the antipasti/pasta. John Dory was over cooked.

The weirdest part of the evening was the crowd. It seemed that everyone there was from Brentwood: all middle aged, moneyed and caucasian. A strange experience east of Fairfax - even Campanile gets a funkier crowd.

I shall return.

FYI, dinner was $80 for two with a bottle of wine.

    That pretty much describes the crowd the night I was there. They must have followed Gino Angelini from Vincenti.

    When that crowd produces such a volume of noise you know there's a major design flaw.
