Restaurant “Angelini Osteria” – Los Angeles, CA

I am going to be short and sweet again.
The best Italian by far. Angelini is the master of his craft. This is where you don’t care how much money you spend because you get what you pay for.
Service is superb. Make reservations in advance and try everything.
Elegant place – food educated crowd. No red-necks here or as we say it in NYC, no bridge and tunnel.

Highly recommend it!!!!
