Angelo is a restaurant owner based in London. In 2007 he was sent to jail for housebreaking, though he avoided a larger sentence for murder due to the aid of the consulting detective Sherlock Holmes.


In 2007 at the time of particularly vicious triple murder, Angelo was a suspect. However Sherlock Holmes was able to prove to DI Greg Lestrade that Angelo was in fact housebreaking elsewhere.

Sherlock and John Watson visited Angelo's restaurant in early February 2010, waiting for the cab driving serial killer Jeff Hope to visit 22 Northumberland Street. Angelo greeted the pair with open arms and offered Sherlock anything he wanted off the menu for free. Angelo thought Sherlock and John were on a date, as he brought a tea-light to the table to make it more romantic.

Later that night, Sherlock texted Angelo and asked him to bring around John's walking stick, which he left behind in the restaurant.

Angelo is very grateful for Sherlock Holmes' help and he considers himself indebted to him. When Sherlock visited his restaurant in February 2010, Angelo greeted him wholeheartedly, offering him anything he wanted on the house.

Angelo is also prepared to run errands for Sherlock, bringing him John's walking stick from his restaurant.

When John Watson and Sherlock came to Angelo's restaurant, Angelo thought that they were on a date. John was not happy about this, but Angelo ignored his assertions that they were not. Angelo brought a candle to the table, which John acknowledged with a terse thanks.

Nevertheless, John was very grateful when Angelo brought his walking stick to 221B Baker Street, after he left it in Angelo's restaurant.


Angelo appeared in the Sherlock episode A Study in Pink. He also appeared in the pilot episode of Sherlock, though was portrayed by a different actor.
