When I write a story about a coming new restaurant, I can expect a barrage of people asking about an opening date. The thing is, I often don’t know. There can be a number of reasons why some eateries may be delayed for years while others appear overnight. Often city-specific red tape gets in the way (I’m looking at you Santa Monica). At any rate, since I first told you about Angelini Ristorante & Bar expanding to Palisades Village, I’ve been peppered with queries about an opening date, so here you go: Angelini Ristorante & Bar will throw open their doors to the public tomorrow (February 11) at 1038 N Swarthmore in Pacific Palisades. Expect a bright airy space with large doors on all sides that spill out onto the sidewalk and a patio for al fresco enjoyment of Gino Angelini’s much-lauded and beloved fare. You’re welcome.
Angelini Osteria, on Beverly Bvd., has been charming Angelenos for 20 years with their solid menu of consistently pleasing pizza, pasta, and “secondi”. Now the Good People of Pacific Palisades won’t have to drive so far for Gino Angelini’s celebrated fare. There’s plywood up on one of the spaces on Palisade Village‘s mini “restaurant row” on Swarthmore Ave. announcing the arrival of Angelini Ristorante & Bar. Looks like they’re shooting for a Winter opening.
