Wow its really not that cold here in Edmonton today..
really, its not..
If you didn’t already notice, I’m on a bit of a hiatus. You can still interact with me on other social media sites if you’ve already found me…
So until I magically have free time again this blog will get a bit dusty. Don’t mind the cobwebs… the spiders make nice friends!
My aunt who makes the best lasagna, at least the only kind I like, saw Angelini Osteria featured on The Best Thing I Ever Ate (go watch the clip!) and added it to her bucket list of places to visit when she traveled to California.
She visited LA this past week we made reservations to try it out…
I went ahead and ordered the nidi di rondine off their specials menu. It’s best described as a pasta ‘nest’, rolled pasta with cheese and ham, topped with a rich meat sauce. I honestly had no idea what I was ordering because the menu is in Italian, but I knew I:
1. wanted to order pasta
2. wanted to try something new
Best decision ever.
I think both my mum and aunt liked their lasagna verde well enough, very interesting flavors and textures with the spinach pasta. I definitely won with my dish… it was like heaven on earth.
I also had the most delicious beet salad, the mixture of fresh greens, salty balsamic, tart pickled beets and melt in your mouth fresh buffalo mozzarella really made a great start to the meal.
If you want to try some amazingly delicious and authentic Italian food (more than half of the patrons in the packed restaurant were speaking Italian, if that says anything about the quality of the food!) make a reservation for Angelini Osteria.
And reservations are a must, it’s a tiny restaurant, and the place was still hopping and people were being seated after our pretty late res time of 8:45 on a Sunday!

I didn’t bother with taking pictures in this crowded restaurant for several reasons, one being the place is so small I didn’t want to distract other diners, plus I really wanted to just enjoy the meal as well as take in the hustle and bustle of the staff… you’ll just have to trust me that the food is exceptional!
