L'angolo (lengthy msg)

Thanks so much for your recommendations (several weeks ago) of L'angolo in South Philadelphia. Enjoyed quite a large meal there last night with visiting family.

For appetizers, we ordered the Antipasto Misto and stuffed portabellas. The antipasto included a frittata, eggplant, some sort of pickled zucchini, a stuffed tomato half, carrots, etc. Yummy. Also came with two helpings of bread and kalamata olives floating in lots of their oil.

For entrees, we stuck to the menu rather than specials (one of the party asked the waiter for the specials' prices, no doubt inspired by the recent Chowhound thread about this), passing food around the table quite a bit. We had chicken saltimbocca--which had prosciutto, sage, and melted fontina over three large pieces of chicken breast; also lobster ravioli; two veal dishes (can't describe those in detail b/c I only tried little bites); and regular potato gnocchi with plenty of shrimp and a thin cream sauce.

We finished with espressos and tiramisu, nut tart (very syrupy sweet), and a chocolate dessert that tasted like flourless chocolate cake but was called something else. One of our servers brought out complimentary limoncello as we finished up the meal. You almost had to roll us out of there--it was quite a fabulous and decadent meal for under $120 (before gratuity is added in). My partner and I are used to grabbing Italian food at Fellini's Cafe in Ardmore, so L'angolo was a great change of pace to enjoy with family.
