Good Pizza – First time at this restaurant, It was very good. Will definately eat here again. Would recommend if you've never been here before.
great place to eat – I think angelo's picnic pizza is a great place to go with the family. They make the pizzas fresh and they have really good service. Since I have been eating there the family that owns the restaurant have gotten to know our family. We love their food and the people our great. You're crazy if you think otherwise.
Italian Food As Good As It Gets – I think being from NYC and of Sicilian heritage, entitles me to make an intelligent commentary on this restaurant: It is simply great. The hand kneaded dough is first rate which affects all the pizzas and sandwiches. The pastas are always cooked correctly; the veal is prime quality; and everything else on the menu is authentically Italian. Having said that, I always feel welcomed and they make every attempt to provide the best service, even when their excellent buffet is being served which is daily. Overall I have to give Angelo and Nick an A+ for effort and food quality. I have to also mention that their pricing is definitely as good as it gets in Nashville.
Misrepresentation on Price – I am from Chicago and have lived in Nashville for 8 months; so far the best pizza is Chicago Style on Nolensville Pike and DaVinci's on Hayes (near West End). I heard that Angelo's won the best of Nashville citysearch award so I went there, but first previewed their menu online. The pizza sauce tasted good and the cheese was not greasy but the crust was very blah, kind of tough and the price was $3.00 - $5.00 higher than what is on their internet menu! The lady casually said "oh, uh, yeah, I guess he forgot to change that!" I asked to speak to a manager as with that big of a difference I think it is a ploy and he hasn't changed it since at least TWO increases ago! I said I will take a printed menu for the future but would expect them to honor their internet price as that is in writing and they should keep up with it. They refused. I don't like doing business with bait and switch tactics so I will not be back.
Great food, Great Portions, Friendly Staff. – I found Angelo's using the Urban spoon app on my iPhone and I wasn't disappointed. I had the spaghetti with meat sauce, and my friend had an Italian sub. Both were delicious, and large enough to please any appetite. We are going to go back and try the pizza.
My Last Visit To Angelo's – I've been a faithful customer of Angelo's for the last 10 years. I'm sad to say that tonight's visit was my last. Ever since Angelo retired the food is not the same. There is a whole new kitchen crew and the quality of the food has gone downhill. The last 4 times I've been there, it's been getting worse and worse. My salad tonight was wilted and tasted like it had been soaking in oil all day. I told the waitress of my displeasure with the salad, and she didn't even offer to take it off of the bill. I informed Angelo's wife when I paying the bill and she didn't even offer to take it off of the bill.
My pizza tonight was terrible too. There were too many veggies on it and it was watery, therfore the crust was soggy. I ordered feta cheese on it and it was not even melted!!
I've given them the benefit of the doubt over my last four visits, hoping they were just having a bad night. Apparently it is not getting any better.
Goodbye Angelo!! It's as if I've lost an old friend!!!
great pizza good customer service – We have been going for pizza here for many years. Their pizza is always delicious and fresh tasting. The service is always wonderful - they make us feel as if we are family. Highly recommend this small, clean, happy sicilian pizza parlor.
GREAT VALUE.... GOOD FOOD! (Need better service) – This is to everyone who read Nashvillian660's post. I have eaten pizza all over the US especially New York and Chicago. I go to Sal's on Stewart's Ferry Pike, which is good with a nice decor. But, Geez!
Your post sounds like a vendetta. In fact, the food at Angelo's is quite good, especially the Eggplant Parm.
The lunch buffet offers a nice selection at a great price. However, the service staff needs improvement in being courteous, though I am mainly only talk about female cashiers and not the pizza makers, who are VERY friendly. GREAT VALUE....GOOD FOOD. (PS. Sal's is good too...as well as the pizza joint in the arcade downtown....voted BEST in '08).
nasty place to eat!!!! Not acceptable food anymore since SAL and Sammy left you Angelo! (Brown) – Attention people!!!
do you all know who opened the PICNIC PIZZA ???? Picnic pizza was opened BY Sal , who now owens the SAL'S PIZZA AND REstaurant on stewarts FErry. I remember those days when Sammy was working over at Picnic pizza, i used to eat his pizza almost everyday. Unfortunately, since Sammy left that place , somebody with the name Angelo took over picnic pizza.I think this dude does not know how to make pizza. All they do just fight, argue, and talk.. I do not eat over there anymore. Everything looks so dirty , disorganized, and unhealthy. I would not recommend to go to that place and eat. it is not worth it.
They talk bad about every other pizzerias, why do not you guys clean up your mess.....
I think Angelo spends a lot of time on this city search writing about his own pizza shop.hahahahahahahahaahahaha. Angelo let other people talk about your place hahahahahaha, I can not stand your foood... sorry.
Pleasant service, disappointing food – After reading numerous recommendations, my wife and I ventured this evening to Angelo's for some alone time from our 4 girls. Overall, we thought the staff was 4 stars and the food, 2. We also thought the overall value, pricewise, was good.
The White Pizza and Pepperoni calzone were underseasoned (mostly the crusts) and we had ricotta overload by the time we were done. Their "garlic" bread appeared to be just pizza dough strips without any seasoning whatsoever. It was served with a tomato sauce for dipping, but again, the sauce seemed to have been poured out of a Hunt's can. Just a little basil, anyone? Please? The pizza crust was a bit floppy in addition to tasting very plain. OK, I think you get the message.
The service, however, was much better. We felt very welcomed. Their timing did break down a little after we requested our check as their 2 servers seemed to get in the weeds with the few tables that were present on a somewhat quiet Saturday night.
My wife and I pondered returning to try some different pizza flavors to give them another shot, but in the end decided that the crust, sauce, and ricotta dissatisfiers would probably remain a constant. Although we tend to favor indy spots, our next pizza venture will bring us to the NYPD Pizza place in Mount Juliet, in the Providence mall area.
