Better Italian than SF? Why did we dine here? – Angelini Osteria has long been dubbed the best Italian restaurant in LA. We finally made time to dine at this small, cozy restaurant near the end of 2016. Yes, we did see a celebrity dining there. Our timing allowed us to catch them when Truffles were all over the menu! (Big$$)

Insider Tip – Reserve the Uni Linguine ahead of time

Cuisine – Italian
Location – Fairfax District, Los Angeles
Opened – 2005

Service – Angelini Osteria had decent service. Not an overabundance of servers, so the service can only be so good. Waitress knew the menu, pacing was good, no need to chase servers.

Verdict – Angelini Osteria is very strong in pasta. We would love to come back and try some of the other dishes. (In addition to the pasta)

LA has some strong Italian Restaurants. After eating at Bestia, Mozza, we have to say that they are superior to the ones in the SF Bay Area.

Is this restaurant worth a 5 minute drive? Yes. 30 minute? Yes. 1 Hour? Maybe.
