We ate in this little restaurant last night, found the place whilst looking at reviews for restaurants in Whetstone, the reviews here were good so booked a table for four. It is a little gem, the food was lovely, fresh home cooking. What really ticked the box for me was the ambiance, I am so feed up at eating in pretentious places in Whetstone, this place is so relaxing and calm. The staff, especially the lady who did the waiting on was lovely….. So happy to have found a really nice eatery only a few minutes’ walk from home...will definitely be going back for seconds!!

This small unassuming restaurant provides a homely atmosphere, and the best Italian food for many miles around. Chef is Rocco Lavattiata. He lives to cook, and you can tell!

By and large, Italian restaurants used to be a byword for good, family style cooking. Now they seem to symbolise inedible pizza places. But, good news, here is a throwback to those good old times. A genuine family run restaurant with excellent value for money food and no pretentions to being anything else. The warmth from Carmello and Rocco when entering this small restaurant is like slipping on a warm overcoat on a chilly day. You know you're in good hands from that moment on and are not going to be disappointed. The menu is simple, but everything is freshly cooked and nothing is overpriced. That old joke and standby "Minestrone Soup" really is a genuine minestrone soup and as good as anything you will get. The veal is perfectly cooked and the vegetable accompaniments more than substantial. Yes, you can find much posher establishments in more fancy surroundings, but this gets maximum rating from me because it is honest, unpretentious and wholly satisfying. This wonderful family restaurant deserves all the support it can get in these trying times. They could easily have put their prices up or compromised on quality, but they have done neither. Go there and enjoy because there are not that many restaurants in the NW London area that give such quality, service and most of all genuine warmth

My family have been using Angelo's for many years and can only praise this family run restaurant,
A as soon as you walk through the door you are greeted with a warmth by either Carmella or one of her 2 daughters & on ocassion her son, soon to be followed from the kitchen by her husband Rocco & her brother Angelo, the greetings over let's get to the food , traditional home cooked Italian fare with a wide selection of daily specials on the board aside from the menu, in all the years my family have been using this restaurant the food has been top notch, we have had christmas dinners, mother & fathers day meals not to mention the numerous birthday & valentine dinners all i must say to an exacting standard, i defy anyone to not find something to there liking on what can only be described as a comprehensive menu, with a price that does not break the bank, we are situated in the Brentwood area of Essex and think nothing of the drive time to this restaurant simply because of the food quality & the warm friendly atmosphere that accompanies it, keep up the good work Angelo's you are a dying breed.

The welcome couldn't be warmer at Angelo's. Home marinated olives give you a taste of things to come. The lobster linguine is a speciality not to be missed. Special dishes keep the menu fresh and guest wines do the same to the wine list. Expect a great evening at Angelo's and to leave feeling part of the family.
