Angelo is indebted to Sherlock Holmes. Whenever he comes into Angelo's restaurant he insists that anything on the menu, whatever Sherlock wants, is free, on the house, for him and his 'date'… sorry we meant John, who is most definitely NOT Sherlock's date (even if there is a candle on the table as it's more romantic!)

So why is Angelo so indebted to Sherlock Holmes? Well, Sherlock got him off a murder charge, that's why.

Three years ago, Sherlock successfully proved to Lestrade at the time of a particularly vicious triple murder, that Angelo was in a completely different part of town, house breaking. He cleared his name. Well, cleared it a bit.

But for Sherlock, Angelo would have gone to prison. Well, he did go to prison… so, erm…

Anyway, in return for the favour, Angelo likes to assist Sherlock when he can. He knows to watch, not to interfere, and goes along with whatever Sherlock's plan is; he always has a plan. Basically bad news for bad people.

Remember 'The Headless Nun'? Ah, now that was a case! Same again?
