Erica’s Picks: All’Angolo – Inexpensive, Authentic Italian
Some of the best Italian food in Los Angeles can be found in, um, Koreatown. All’ Angolo, the latest project from Italian born Executive Chef Giuseppe Musso (formerly of Amarone Kitchen + Wine), has a small but mighty menu of fresh pastas, pizzas, antipasti and specials emulating the dishes and flavors of the Romagna region of Italy.
Best part here is that your delicious Penne alla Genovese, Lasagna alla Bolognese and Burrata con Funghi will run you no more than $10 each. Plus, you can watch everything being handmade in the tiny kitchen barely separated from the quaint little European Café-style dining room.
Chef Musso and his team of 3 dance around each other all night long making some of the best authentic Italian cuisine in town at a price you’ll think is a mistake. BYOW (Bring Your Own Wine) does cost you a corkage fee – a whopping $2. Be kind and share a glass with Chef Musso, he deserves a little love after the fantastic food he delivers.
You’ll most likely eye the fresh chocolate dipped Cannoli all night long since it’s in the glass case next to the kitchen action. Go ahead and save yourself the trouble of pretending you won’t want it. You’re going to order it, and it’s worth every calorie (even if you do have do unbutton your pants).
