Recommended by friends as the best Italian food in LA. Coming from NY I was a bit apprehensive because I've been disappointed so many times with recommendations.\r
This time I surely wasn't. Can't wait to go back.

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

Chef Angelini is the best in LA. I have been to Angelini many times and every time is fabulous. I would recommend this place to everyone, make a reservation all days of the week are busy.

Love this place. It has a bistro feel to it. Great wine bar. Even better is their food. The risotto is to die for. That's the only reason why I go here. Great date spot. Parking is typical on Beverly Blvd., valet or street parking.

The appetizers and salads were delicious, but the rest of the meal was wholly disappointing. The caprese had very fresh and flavorful mozzarella, but that is the last positive thing I can say. I had the rib eye and it was way too fatty,

The food here is lovely. It is definitely one of the best Italian restaurants in Los Angeles. It is a very boisterous atmosphere with somewhat brusque service, so not necessarly suitable for a "romantic" evening, but the food is amazing. The pastas are cooked to perfection.

This really is the best Italian restaurant in LA. You know how you can tell? There are lots of Italians "in the know" that are eating there almost every night. Celebrities abound in this very small cozy place. Their specialty is the branzino which is hard to find here in town so try it and LOVE it. I've never had a bad meal here but as always it ain't cheap!
