    Ask Wolfgang Puck the perfect fish and he'll say the Salt-Crusted Branzino at Angelini Osteria. On The Best Thing I Ever Ate, he admitted to dreaming about the Branzino's light, delicate flavors. Read more

    They fuel a lunch crowd with pasta al limone and tripe, serve oxtails on Thursday nights, dish out respectable versions of Roman trattoria classics like spaghetti carbonara and pollo alla diavola Read more

    On this menu everything feels like a greatest hit: You’ll be more than satisfied with a deceptively simple spaghetti alla carbonara or a towering piece of Nonna Elvira’s famed lasagne. Read more

    For all its influence, it nonetheless feels like a great neighborhood restaurant, a place where you can drop in for a nice lunch with friends or dinner with the in-laws when they’re in town. Read more

    I really don't think it matters what you get here. The service is excellent and they make you feel at home. I got the lasagne verde (pictured) and loved it.

    Great mom and pop feel (despite the priciness). Loved the foie gras and bone marrow, especially the pasta that comes with the marrow. The duck ragout tag was so good. The uni linguine was okay.

    Gino Angelini is among the most skillful of the old-school Italian chefs in town. While Angelini Osteria does not feature Angelini's most refined cooking, it is everyone's favorite. Read more

    All the homemade pastas are delicious! Small restaurant, be ready to sit shoulder to shoulder with other diners, reservations required! Wait staff is very friendly! Scallop appetizer is great!

    Great lasagna and pasta. Polipo is my favorite. I wonder how they can cook octopus so soft inside. No chewiness at all.

    The truffles were not as great as I hoped. The arrabbiata decent. I will give this place one more try. The peach tart was good. All in all did not live up to my high expectations but will try again

    Tuna tartar was nothing special. It's a small restaurant but food is overrated to be honest. I don't think I'd make an effort to come next time except for the tagliolini with lemon which was amazing

    The tagliolini truffle was too salty for our taste. The fish was fresh & so tasty

    Despite the praised and truly good food, I was disappointed with the service. I had to wait for 40 minutes outside after my reservation time, was not even offers to sit at the bar which was vacant.

    Okay the lasagna is over rated, not good meat. I'll wait till I'm in NY for good Italian I suppose; dover sole was good. Basically a cheaper joint for rich people to mingle when they are on a dime.
