Italian
In October 2001, he opened his own restaurant, Angelini Osteria, in the heart of Los Angeles. Since its opening, Angelini Osteria has become known as simply everyone’s favorite Italian restaurant in Los Angeles, winning over the city with unassuming and authentic dishes in a warm, intimate setting. In late 2016, Gino opened Angelini Alimentari, an ode to the classic Italian coffee bar serving house-made gelato, espresso, and simple, fresh dishes. At Alimentari Gino Angelini launched his specialty food product line with the introduction of the Osteria’s signature pasta sauces. Throughout the years, Gino has won numerous honors for his culinary artistry, including the 2007 Artusi Award, the 2011 Galvanina Trophy for Best Chef of the Year, and the 2011 Sigismondo Malatesta d’Oro, the highest civilian award of his home city of Rimini. He is consistently praised by patrons and critics as “the best Italian chef in Los Angeles.”

What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Angelini Osteria is one of the great Italian restaurants of Los Angeles.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

The food here is a transcendental experience. There's not much one can say beyond that; it defies description in its excellence.

The food was undercooked and the host was rude and the service and people there were rude as well. I don’t recommend and I feel like it was a waste of money.

To expensive for what you get you have to ask the waitress every second for something that is missing on the table and it takes to long until you reach anyone. I also had the remind them for the birthday dinner. Disappointing

Best place in LA for great italian food. Its best for date night or with family. Tastiest italian food in the US. Best service in the least pretentious place in LA you really feel welcome by everyone. Couldn't pick a better place to have lunch or dinner.

Food was pretty good. Squid ink pasta had so much sand it was annoying. Truffle pasta was so overpriced and tasted like regular pasta. Service was great. Had a great time.

We were a first clients for this evening. We been seated at 5:30, what was nice. But every dishes what was ordered was burned out including bread.
The restaurant is way over priced for this food.

Ten years ago, I think this would have been considered a solid, recommendable Italian meal. But the bar has been raised in Los Angeles, and for these prices, the food is mediocre. Tried the lemon tagliolini, the gorgonzola and pear salad, the bombolotti all'amatriciana, and a salmon dish they brought to us on the house. Sadly, all were just a few notches above edible. Unmemorable experience overall.

Good food - service was very slow for lunch time largely due to our server forgetting to put our order in. Two of the items didn't even require much prep - it was a salad and melon dish - no cooking required. Although the chef provided a few small complimentary dishes until our food arrived we would have preferred receiving our food in a timely manner and save an extra hour on our lunch break.

Food was good but $80 per person including apps and dessert was overpriced for pasta. Portions were fairly small. Good service. Wine was good and I didn’t include that in the $80 per person.
