Very good although I thought the meatballs were a bit dense. My wife had the lasagna Bolognese the meat sauce was great and the lasagna tender.... More

Sincere, authentic and not at all overbearing, from the servers to management, diners will know they are the most important part of this restaurant's success. My acid test is to ask for recommendations, and in Angelo's there was no hesitation and yet a wonderful variety to choose from. Fabulous, tender octopus. Meatballs that melt in your mouth. I had veal... More

For a different treat, and not the kind you may find at fusion or chain restaurants, this place will fit the bill. Say if you like to pair pears and blue cheese, imagine that with figs and Italian bacon added... You may want to sit away from the gelato counter, or arm yourself by boosting your will power.

Have been there in two different occasions, both time the service was friendly and the food was impecable. The octopus salad is a unique mixture of ingredients that will make you order it more than once. The lasagna, lamb shanks are to die for. if you don't have a big appetite think in terms of sharing, the portions are big.... More

Our friends "warned" us that the portions were large and we were not disappointed. The Tapas are the size of a main dish and can easily be shared between 2 or more. Our group tried several of Tapas including the Grilled Octopus, which was disappointing as it was hard and chewy. We went on to try the Tuscan Minestrone which... More

This is a wonderful Italian restaurant where the service is great and the food is always good. Cocktails are also generous. They take reservations and are generally good about having a seat when you arrive. However thanks to this place I am crazy for great meatballs. They are the best on the planet. I love to get the spaghetti and... More

Very nice tasting.. lots of cheese, $18.00 We were a bit disappointed the mushrooms tasted like they were canned...and there wasn't a lot of mushrooms on the pizza to warrant the price, in our opinion. I had the Octopus,$18 very nicely done with arugula, tender and very nice. All in all with a draught beer and tip the lunch was... More

The happy hour is great and the bartenders are wonderful. Half price everything (drinks) and a special happy hour appetizer menu that is wonderful. We love every item on the menu.

great ambiance, impeccable service, octopus to salivate over and overall a wonderful afternoon. Nothing to compare in the area, if one wants a luncheon that has a European flavor. They did the pasta a s reqiested with no extra charge and the wine was 1/2 off. Well worth the dollar and as I have frequented the the venue on numerous... More
