Angelini Osteria: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013

Angelini Osteria: 99 Essential Restaurants 2013
PHOTO BY ANNE FISHBEIN

For the last dozen years, West Hollywood's Angelini Osteria has been perhaps the moral center of Italian food in Los Angeles. A procession of many of the town's best practitioners of the cuisine has trained in chef Gino Angelini's small kitchen, learning to master pasta and porchetta at Angelini's hands. On the other side of the pass, the rest of us have continued to enjoy his exquisite plates of vitello tonnato, spaghetti alla chittara, or the stunning roast leg of pork carved at table on Saturday nights, the waiters weaving amidst the happily crowded tables like folk dancers. The chef who has cooked for popes and dignitaries is invariably in the kitchen, in chef's whites, a scarf around his neck, maybe plating a dish of warm octopus. If all osterias were like this, Alitalia would be out of business. 7313 Beverly Blvd., W. Hlywd.; (323) 297-0070, angeliniosteria.com.
