The place is great. The restaurant is on the smaller size, but the customer service is wonderful, and the food is amazing. The restaurant is BYOB, which is great keeps the bill inexpensive. The only downfall was that the restaurant does not have parking and the street parking is very congested. Overall, I love the place.

It was very warm in the restaurant with lots of small bugs flying around the tables and food. Small like fruit flies. Additionally I asked for candles to be added to dessert when making the reservation since we were celebrating my husband’s birthday and that didn’t happen. Why ask if there is something special going on if you’re not going to act on it. Been here before and everything was great however last night was definitely lacking.

Local gem. Once you walk by the kitchen and get to the dining area, you feel you're in Italy. BYOB The food is authentic Italian, not Americanized. Every item as well as the specials are made to perfection. I will be returning.

After concert At Kimmel center . Found out that restaurant was sold to long term employee. We have been going for many years and were NEVER disappointed. John , the employee who bought the business has taken this approximately 20 seat restaurant into something that feels like a Sunday family dinner in the kitchen of a home in “any town” Italy. We’ve been in Italy so I speak from experience.
EVERYTHING we ate for dinner was 5+ stars. John has the best people in the kitchen. The menu is different , but not far from the best Italian dishes I’ve had between Italy and south Philly.
DONT miss this authentic GEM of quality food , service and atmosphere. I may regret this review, why ?, because I’ll never get back in ! 😢

We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner outdoors at L'Angolo this weekend. Three of us enjoyed three different starters (all great!), two out of three entrees, and two shared desserts (both excellent, especially a perfect pumpkin cheesecake). A heat lamp kept us comfortable, and even though most of the action was indoors, we were well taken care of. The only reason for four stars rather than five was an extremely oversalted pork special that we did not enjoy. But that misstep did not diminish our enjoyment of the rest of the meal, and we are eager to return.

This South Philly neighborhod restaurant is a gem. The flavors are amazing. Service is splendid. Ambience: straight from a small town in southern Italy. It's small, so don't just drop in with a reservation.

Squisito as always. This place is my favorite italian in the city. Everything is great...gnocchi, grilled seafood, Osso Buco, pasta. Never had anything I didn't like and its BYOB. If you haven't been, do it. You won't be disappointed.

I hate to rave about this for fear that I won’t get a seat in the future! This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in Philadelphia. Between the food, the attentive service, and the atmosphere, it is a go-to in South Philly.

Absolutely wonderful. We celebrated my birthday with an outdoor table on a beautiful night and the food was some of the best I've had in a long time. The specials were especially good but so was a menu item (spaghettia alla scolio). The service was great as well. Highly recommend this place!

Last night my family and I had a delightful experience for my birthday dinner. Our reservations were at 8pm and there were only four other diners in the entire restaurants, so not only did we feel Covid-safe, but it was so wonderfully quiet as well.

After having read most of the reviews on OpenTable, we too were charmed by Johnny, the long-time waiter who purchased the restaurant from the original owners right before the pandemic shutdown in February 2019.

Johnny is warm, animated, cheerful, professional and a skilled host. He made us feel as if he were in his home. The junior server and server were also gracious, more so than any other serving experience I have encountered in quite a long time.

We started with mussels in white and grilled calamari, which were delicious. Then Johnny sent over funghi al forno, mushrooms baked in the oven, topped melted fontina cheese. It was delicioso!

For the dinner entrees, two of us ordered the home-made tagliatelle with mushrooms and shrimp, one ordered the ricotta gnocchi in a cream sauce with shrimp, and my husband ordered spaghetti in fresh tomato gravy and homemade braciole with fresh sage, prosciutto and smoked mozzarella.

We ended the meal sharing one slice of the decadent chocolate torte, which tasted more like a cake version of chocolate mousse. It was dense, rich, dark and delicious!

I highly recommend L'Angolo - it is cozy and cute with a sweet ambiance, and your taste buds will be knocked out!
