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.

L'angolo is one of my favorite restaurants. It is small and cozy, and the staff are always warm and accommodating. The owners, Davide and Kathryn, have created a top-notch restaurant in South Philly. The food never fails to disappoint, and the prices are reasonable. I look forward to the fall when the homemade butternut squash raviolis are available. They are... More

We have been to L'Angolo on several occasions and have loved it every time. It is a very intimate and lovely place, the decor reminiscent of small cafes in Italy. The waiters are charming and efficient and the food has been excellent every time - savory Italian comfort food.

What a delight having L'Angolo open a restaurant in Havertown! Make a reservation as it is always busy. Every dish on the menu is a must try. Best BYOB in the area. And, very reasonably priced.

Was looking for a cozy and high quality dinner before a Wells Fargo center event- and we found it. Great service, food, and atmosphere. Awesome.
