L'Angolo Ristorante Italiano Restaurant Review

: This is one of those charming South Philly BYOBs that you always hope you’ll find, but seldom do. Husband and wife team Kathryn and David Faenza have fashioned an intimate, warm spot in an old neighborhood house where they serve the food of Apulia, with an emphasis on fresh vegetables and pristine fish and meat. Grilled calamari is tender, and David puts his own spin on pastas, adding mint to one dough, stuffing another with mushrooms, and napping still another with pancetta and fresh tomatoes. Orecchiette with shredded duck and shaved Parmesan is especially tasty. Pounded paillard of veal is grilled and drizzled with fragrant olive oil and paired with creamy polenta or pecorino-enriched mashed potatoes. Kathryn presides over the daily changing desserts. The good feeling you get here is enhanced by homemade limoncello that David offers at meal’s end.
