    The meal was wonderful, cooked to perfection. The pork chop was amazing. The grilled calamari yummy. The tiramisu was terrific. If you sit outside, request a table on Porter Street. We sat in the side street near the AC units and trash receptacle. It was fine, there was no problem sitting there, we would sit there again, but not as desirable as the other outside tables.

    If I tell you the truth about L’Angolo, it will make it much harder for me to score a reservation at my favorite restaurant in Philadelphia. So, I won’t tell you how amazing this South Philly neighborhood gem really is.

    Our hi-top table near the open kitchen gave us a great view of all the action. Beautiful plates flowed past us - and came to us as well. Our waiter was nicely attentive, including compensating for our failure to bring wine! Definitely want to return.

    Last night was okay. The smoked mozzarella was excellent. But the lamb osso bocco was overpowered by the red sauce as was my veal parm. Both would have been better with half tje sauce.We will, however, go back as the first time we went, it was excellent.

The special of the spicy paperdelle with lobster and shrimp was fantastic and my ultimate favorite which they had, the veal ravioli are spectacular! Homemade pasta just delicious! Johnny has created a consistently, enjoyable restaurant! Always looking forward to our next reservation!

    Paolo's food is just wonderful. The portions are large, the preparation and presentation is artful and the prices more than fair. The staff is beyond compare. Carlos, Daniel, CassieAnn give exemplary service and are extremely knowledgable and efficient. Of course, in my experience the kitchen and restaurant staff take their cues from the owner and you couldn't find a better one than John. He does it all the right way and it shows every night of the week. The many, many regulars attest to the quality of L'angolo in every area.

    This is a gem of a restaurant ! The food was not only plentiful but delicious! We enjoyed several appetizers including the eggplant parmesan which was fabulous. I had the veal dish which I highly recommend and my son and his fiance each got pasta dishes they loved. The service was wonderful. We forgot wine and the waiter gave us some house chianti to enjoy! Can not wait to go back. This is some of the best Italian food I have had in Philadelphia.

    We were late for our reservation because of an unexpected road closure, and the staff was very gracious about being flexible. The food was ok, but the service wasn’t very good. Water was never refilled, greeting took a long time…that kind of thing. But the atmosphere is lovely and everyone has an off night. We’ll probably give it another try someday soon because we’ve had good experiences before last night.

    L'Angolo, a small, intimate, authentic Italian restaurant in South Philadelphia may be our favorite spot to dine. Food is well prepared, ingredients are fresh and always cooked perfectly, and the small kitchen turns out a wide array of authentic pasta dishes, meats, and seafood. Sauces are delicious and everything is fresh and flavorful. It's a BYO, so bring good wine without paying an uncharge for it. Service is excellent, and we have come to know and appreciate the staff. This is a real gem in Philadelphia, perfect for couples, friends, and moderate-size families. We love L'Angolo.
