“St. Louis-style Pizza, Better Than Most”
Review of Angelo's Pizzeria

Restaurant details
Reviewed April 30, 2017

Angelo's Pizza is a very small shop in Black Jack, MO (eastern edge of Florissant), within a mile of my house. It has been in the same location for many years, and long-time regulars are always happy to tell me its product & service have not changed. My wife & I have eaten in a couple of times and had a couple of carry-out dinners, most recently this past weekend. It definitely caters to neighborhood clientele, and the owners or family members are always on-site. Service is always friendly & efficient, whether for phone orders or table service.

I'm not a big fan of St. Louis-style pizza (thin crust with Provel cheese), but I make an exception with Angelo's. Their Provel mixture doesn't have that coat-your-mouth attribute that turns me off with Imo's pizza, their dough is made fresh, and their toppings are usually generous. Pizza prices are competitive with Imo's menu prices, and their "small" salads are huge and simple but tasty. Their primary business is carry-out, but they do have 6 to 8 small tables in the small dining space. The kitchen size matches the dining area, so wait times for pizza (carry-out or dine-in) can be excessive. But if you know that in advance, I believe you & your family will enjoy your meals.

Neighborhood restaurant that doesn't disappoint. Pizza is thin crust. Ingredients always fresh. Prices very fair.

This pizza place has some of the best thin crust pizza around. There was a time when there were several locations with a similar style of Pizza but this is one of the last of its kind standing. Loaded with topping. Pricey but worth the splurge every now and again.

Still one of the best authentic Italian pizzerias out there! It's in a small spot with little fan fare but with some of the best crust, toppings, and sauce I've enjoyed growing up in St Louis. Two small pizzas cost $25. But there it was loaded with enough meat that only a few slices will fill you up vs it's more well-known competitors in which you have to almost eat a half of a pizza to very full.

They must be on their their third generation. I have been going there for 40 years. I have seen their kids grow up and become part of the staff. Always a grandma sitting in the corner keeping an eye on things.

Small and and always busy. The pizza is great as is the salad with the house dressing.

Friends who have left the area request we visit when they return.

They offer carry out and serve beer.
