Great restaurant with a lovely Italian menu. Love the carpaccio with arugula, pizza and the gnocchi with a very delicious cheese sauce (not cream) ewe gooey cheese sauce.

We went here Sunday evening for dinner. The best part of our visit was two martinis at the bar. Large martinis but pricy. Otherwise our spaghetti and veal meatballs were above average, as well as the salad. Our server kept trying to rush us along, which was ridiculous considering the restaurant was half full and nobody was waiting for our... More

I have been coming to this restaurant for years. I always found it to be very enjoyable. Recently this was not the case. I went with 4 adults and 2 children. We ordered pizza for the children, my wife ordered pasta bolognesa, I ordered veal meatballs, we also ordered grilled octopus. The food was lukewarm and the taste mediocre. I... More

If Casa D'Angelo is too formal or expensive for you Angelo Elia's offers much of the same quality in smaller portions and in a more casual trattoria setting with 80 wines choices instead of 2000. Great food

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.
