SquareMeal Review of
A classic Italian trattoria with that “classic Chiantishire enoteca look”, Osteria dell’Angelo goes about its business against a comfortably unpretentious backdrop of bare wooden tables, smart chairs, exposed brickwork and ample wine racks. Noise levels are perfect for private conversations between Westminster lobbyists and parliamentarians who come here for “better than average” food, a really approachable wine list and a bill that’s guaranteed to keep the accountants happy. The menu isn’t going to set the world alight, but stylish dishes ranging from stewed baby octopus with quinoa and purple potatoes or pappardelle with wild boar ragù to saddle of venison with celeriac sauce, cavolo nero and juniper are guaranteed to satisfy allcomers. There’s also a comfortable bar area, where ever-accommodating staff will happily provide you with a cup of coffee, a plate of cicchetti or a brace of cocktails.
