“Cheap but the Food is Great”
Reviewed 25 March 2012

A local institution. Great Italian food. Large portions. Looks like Grandma's kitchen but has some of the best waitstaff I've seen. This restaurant is very popular so if you arrive at a prime time be prepared to wait.

“Basic Italian and Very, Very Good”
Reviewed 12 March 2012

Everything is homemade and well done -- expect Nona to step out of the kitchen with apron on and spoon in her hand, saying "Eat, Eat". Don't miss it!

“do not go and waste your time.”
Reviewed 6 March 2012

I am up to trying anything based on a review, word of mouth or looks cool from outside. I had heard of this place from some co-workers and I had the opportunity to try it with a group of other people as part of a good job dinner. Thank god I did not have to waste one cent in this place.

The first impression was outdated family restaurant. I think they are in need of a restaurant impossible makeover. The decor was old and dusty, cheesy tableclothes and wall art and it was very very small inside. They have no bar or even a sitting area to wait for people or to be served. The menu was typical italian, eggplant parm, pasta dishes etc. The food was boring, I mean no flavor at all. The sauce was runny and portions were small. The only thing good about this place was it was cheap, under 12.00 a plate.

After having no where to sit and wait, dinner that took 2 hours from sitting down to meal coming and having a terrible meal, I will be sure to never go back and never recommend this place. If you want good italian food, go to any restaurant in little italy (near ST. Joe's) or go down the road to Gentil's.

“Great food and prices”
Reviewed 21 December 2011

If you go to Angotti's, you MUST try the chicken parm. It is one of the best around. It melted in my mouth. My wife had the veal parm, which she said was excellent. We ordered an antipasto, which came in the large metal bowl that was fabulous. The service was only "ok" and the atmosphere average at best. The great food and cheap prices make this place a gem!

“Best Italian food anywhere!”
Reviewed 10 November 2011

Sauce is the best. Pizza is great. Mozzarella cheese is sooo good.
Come for the food, quantity and price. Be hungery. You will have leftovers and money in your pocket.
Service is avg as is atmosphere, but food is absolutely delicious!
