Our family realy enjoyed our meal. Chicken parm was done perfectly. The ravioli was amazing and so was the bread and ceaser salad. It appeared that everything was made in house. The staff is very warm and friendly.

I always wondered whether this small neighborhood South Philly restaurant deserved to ranked so higher on trip advisor. I finally got a chance to go here...and it very much deserves all the accolades. Home cooking feel, not overly sophisticated, but still very well crafted food....More

Party of four persnickity old coots who, from start to finish, loved the place. The place is very small but the tables were well arranged so you did not feel that you were sitting in another party's lap. Noise level was such that we could...More

L'angolo is absolutely delicious, fresh and original products, like/better then in Italy!! I was invited by local friends, so I went, very curious to understand if their comments were right...

Just when you think the dishes in L'Angolo couldn't get any more delicious.....they somehow make it happen. This place is absolutely amazing. The grilled calamari is the best in the entire world. And I have searched all over Italy for a calamari as good as...More

Yes they accept credit cards. You can dress up or dress casually. I've gone to L'ongolo's wearing attire to go to the ball game as well as nicer casual dress clothes. Your choice! Welcome back to Philly! Enjoy!!
