Highlights from the Rogue 99 ~ Angelini Osteria

[dropcap size=big]T[/dropcap]here are few Italian restaurants in town that garner as much respect as Angelini Osteria. Indeed, Gino Angelini’s 17-year-old restaurant is the go-to for classic Italian cooking in the city, and many of the city’s best chefs have passed through its tiny kitchen. The dining room on most nights, meanwhile, is usually filled with regulars, most of whom have their own favorite dish from the restaurant’s main menu, whether it’s the Lasagna Verde, with lovely beef and veal ragu layered between sheets of spinach pasta; the housemade tagliolini in a lemon cream; or the branzino roasted whole under a blanket of sea salt. But it’s not just the pastas and the fish that make Angelini Osteria such a beloved place; it’s also the friendly, oftentimes gregarious service and the fact that even on the coldest Los Angeles nights you’ll be warmed by the cozy glow exuding from the dining room. And yes, there is gelato for dessert.
