A Taste of Little Italy in Lakewood – I have passed Angelo?s in Lakewood many, many times always wanting to go in. There were some nights where there looked to be no one in the place, but other nights, I do not think you could have gotten a table. I looked over the menu posted in the window and thought, a little high priced ? but finally decided to give it a chance. The decor reminded me of some of the small places in Little Italy in Manhattan. The food was just as good. The Manicotti was delicious, with a nice blend of spices and cheese. The Baked Ziti was equally tasty. I was floored by the buttery rolls and marinara sauce. I have to go back to try some of the chicken dishes.
Awesome Pizza, Great Date Night Restaurant – Their pizza is so delicious! Don't forget about Angelo's when you're ordering pizza take-out/delivery - SO much better than those chains. When eating at the restaurant, I recommend the back area where it's romantic with the low lighting. The servers have always been very friendly and attentive, but not overly in your face. Can't say ANYTHING negative.
Worst experience ever in a restaurant – Manager openly arguing with customers at multiple tables and extremely slow service. Very disappointing for a place that we have always considered one of the traditional Dallas haunts. Avoid at all costs!
FABULOUS PASTA & PIZZA!!! – WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!! WENT THERE LAST NITE & HAD THE BEST CHICKEN PARMESAN EVER!! FABULOUS CAESAR SALAD CAME WITH THE DINNER & GARLIC ROLLS TO DIE FOR!!! WHERE HAS THIS WONDERFUL PLACE BEEN ALL MY LIFE. IT WAS MY FIRST VISIT BECAUSE OF OPERATION KINDNESS--THIS GREAT PLACE DONATED 25% OF THEIR DAYS TOTAL TO THE ANIMAL SHELTER. WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE -- THEY KNOW HOW TO COOK ITALIAN. GOOD FOOD, GOOD WINE, GREAT ROMANTIC ATMOSPHERE & THEY DONATED PART OF THEIR PROFITS -- WHO COULD ASK FOR ANYTHING MORE. WE LOVE THIS PLACE!!!!!
Awesome food, great service! – Nice and cozy atmosphere. Attentive servers. You must try the Caesar salad, best in Dallas! Food is top notch. I will definitely be back!
Don't waste your time.. – My husband and I have been waiting in anticipation for the results of the best pizza in Dallas to be published. I am a transplanted New Yorker, Texan by marriage and we have definite opinions about pizza. Our usual is Pizza Guy on Preston in N. Dallas, but have been known to drive to Austin to pick up a couple of pans from Conan's when the mood strikes us. We live across the street from Pastazio's and even with all the hype, we aren't impressed. Campisi's and I Fratelli pizza we like - the italian food is good too. And finally, out of the other "Top-Rated" pizza places in Dallas, that we've been too, Fireside Pies was overpriced and undercooked when we went to the Plano location.To us, the sauce is the most important aspect of a pie, with the crust running a close second, so based on all of that information we know what we are looking for and this place AIN'T IT!. Angelo's is bland, bland, bland! There is nothing special about this pizza. Nothing. You would do better going to Walmart and buying a DiGiorno.
Very, very good! – Good, basic Italian food in a casual and homey atmosphere. The portions are huge...it would be easy to split a meal. Good wait staff, fabulous hot rolls.
Citysearch DOES have a sense of humor – I had seen that Citysearch had named Angelo's the "2006 Editoral Winner of Best Pizza in Dallas" award, so naturally I had to give their pizza a go to confirm any truth to the claim. Here is my experience. So, we get there to find it crowded, so much so that they only had a tiny table available ... in a tiny part of the restaurant. Ok, if the pizza is worth it then no big deal. To be accurate in comparing their pizza with the other highly rated pizza joints I've been to, I ordered a hamburger pizza just as I had done with the other pizza restaurants I've rated. To start off with, It took a bit longer than expected for our pizza to be served. Well that's ok too, IF the pizza is as advertised. I took my first bite into the pizza and my immediate thought was "boring". I took a few more bites and my opinion was still the same - boring and bland ... along with the thought , "This was voted Best Pizza in Dallas???" The problem I had with the pizza was that the tomato/pizza sauce had very little taste to it. And the hamburger topping was also nothing to write home about. Along with the words "boring and bland" to desribe Angelo's pizza, I would also use the word "flat" - as in flat tasting. After eating a few slices I decided I had enough - even though I had room for more. So we finished eating and we sat there ... and we sat there ... and we sat there ... the entire time (seemed like eternity) waiting for the waiter to bring us our check. He never did -- BECAUSE HE FORGOT ABOUT US!! Even though he was very attentive to us at first, after awhile he apparently just forgot about us. We got tired of waiting and got up and walked to the register to pay so we could leave. The lady at the register said, "Didn't you get a ticket (the bill)"? I said "No, the waiter never came back". She said nothing in return. I paid the bill and walked out never to return. So, the best pizza restaurant in Dallas? LOL! I think Citysearch meant it as a punchline to a joke....
Great pasta, pizza and salad! – I love italian food and one of my favorite places is Angelo's. The atmosphere is cozy and makes you feel like you've escaped the craziness of the day. I recommend asking for table in the back if you're looking for a romantic feeling. Once you've been seated you'll receive some yummy, hot, buttery rolls with the most amazing marinara sauce. I recommend ordering the Ceasar salad with your dinner because it's a really authentic flavor. Ask for anchovies if you're brave! Then I recommend the Sausage Pomodora Pizza. It has big flavor and a small is large enough for 2 people to share (really, I'm not skimping here) so it can be a good value too. My other fav is the Crab and Shrimp Tosca. Oh it's so good . You'll get crab, shrimp, sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms and pasta in a very tasty butter sauce. I also recommend the Lobster and Crab Maria if you like cream sauce and my husband is a fan of the Pasta Romano because he loves peppers and sausage. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a first date or really any date, but it's good for a gathering of friends too. The afternoon buffet is okay and I never leave hungry, but it is a buffet so the food quality is lower that it is when you order from the menu.
Great food – This is simply one of the best restaurant in Dallas. The food is worth the price and the ambiance is wonderful. We will be back here again soon.
