Known for manning the stoves at high-end restaurants Rex and Vincenti, Chef Gino Angelini is dishing out quality Italian fare at his own place. Even the most been-there-ate-that gourmand will savor the simple, yet sublime starters, from the paper-thin pizzas to the steamed mussels and clams bathing in a garlic-infused broth. Nonna Elvira's green lasagna is a dozen layers of bliss with blankets of pasta enveloping a mild cheese. Continue with a deliciously soft, moist branzino (salt-encrusted sea bass), or a pork chop sided with braised red cabbage. Desserts deserve special attention, such as a buttery mascarpone, or a scoop of vanilla gelato with a shot of steaming espresso.

A true and authentic Italian restaurant without the frills to coverup for shitty food. This unassuming place tucked away on Beverly Blvd has some of the most delicious food in town. It gets booked up very far in advance, so be sure to call in ahead of time.
Whenever someone asks me, "what is your favorite restaurant in Los Angeles?" I always respond well that is a hard question because there are just so many amazing places. I do say that Angelini Osteria is in my top 10 because the food is always consistent. I have been here so many times and have never been disappointed. Angelini is one of those restaurants that isn't focused to much on decor, the restaurant itself is small, the focus really is the food.
Uni pasta (sometimes you have to pre-order it a couple of days in advanced as they sell out)
