The food at L'Angolo is delicious every time we go. Great menu selections, but not too many. What that team does, they do very well. Great staff, friendly atmosphere, BYOB.

Had dinner reservations for 2. Stuck in a corner. 1 guest had back to the wall and I was touching the chair behind me. Most uncomfortable restaurant I have ever been in. This was not the first time I experienced this problem, but it will be the last. Head waiter, or maybe he's the owner, is ignorant, rude and sarcastic.... More

This is my favorite restaurant in Philly. The food is incredible and many specials to consider. The standard fare is always fantastic. Very friendly service and a warm atmosphere. Doesn't get better than this.

L'Angolo is a restaurant I can't get enough of. Wish I had multiple stomachs to sample more dishes than I have. Their seafood is outstanding as are all their homemade pasta dishes. The salads are to die for. Add to all this excellent and extremely friendly service and you have a real winner. It's my favorite Philly go-back-to!!

My wife and I had dinner last week at L'Angolo in South Philly. The food and service were outstanding. I highly recommend this restaurant for fine Italian food.

After many wonderful dinners here, we went recently with another couple (first timers) and were over-all disappointed with our meals. Our appetizers, Caesar salad and mussels were excellent. Two veal dishes were described as tough and tasteless. A breaded pork medallion meal was described as fair. A seared tuna dinner looked horrible as presented (everything piled on the plate}, but...

Excellent dinner on Saturday night in South Philly. Reminded me of my visits to Italy and its restaurants - small, loud, fun, authentic (real Italian) wait staff, and fantastic food! First, the atmosphere is pure South Philly: a renovated row house that seats about 30-40, where you raise your voice to hear each other. But it's fun! It's a BYOB,... More

Tried L'Angolo last night with some S. Philly friends and left smiling. Although the restaurant is small, the food was DELICIOUS and the servers were attentive. Its a BYOB which we also love. Wish we had saved room for dessert as they looked good, but were too full from our meals. Will be sure to save some room and try... More

Been coming to this restaurant for years. Consistently good food and service. The lobster ravioli (home made) is the best. Its also a BYOB.

What a great little spot. If you've never been to Italy, have a meal here and you've been there. Very authentic. Items on the menu I've not seen elsewhere or at least not to that quality. A "can't miss spot". Tiny... Prep in the front of the house but don't be fooled. Not much atomosphere but you won't even notice.
