    D'Angelo's has a very nice atmosphere, and the staff is friendly and accommodating. The issue is that the food is mediocre, at best. I had veal parmesan. It was over cooked and had a hard crust. The house wines by the glass were only fair. On a positive note, the prices were reasonable.

    Went there for the first time Saturday night for my husbands birthday with my sister and brother in law. Food was delicious, service was great and the older gentleman behind the bar is a gem! The apps were ok, but all of our dinners were excellent--their pasta bolognese is to die for!! best I ever had--cannolloni is excellent, brother in law had spagetti and meatballs, spicey, loved it and my husband had a veal dish with side of escarole--everything seasoned great! Next time, we would do salads instead of apps. Only word of caution is their specials are very pricey---make sure you ask for the price --which is odd because their menu is very reasonable. Excellent food. Real italian cooking.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 9/16/2014
    5 of us had a reservation. There was confusion about the time and two guests arrived at 6:25 pm for a 6:30 reservation; 2 arrived at 6 pm; and 1 arrived at 6:10 pm. The management then used that as an excuse for serving our entrees at 7:45 pm and only after I had a major hissy fit mid-restaurant. No one came to our table to inform us of a reason for delay. A waiter told us that the delay was caused by a party of 30 for which the check had to cook. I believe that this was the truth. My veal chop, which I asked to be served without onions, came smothered in them. The management took $50 off a $275 bill which was the cost of our drinks and fair, but blamed my guests for arriving late (manager said they came at 6:45 pm - not true).

    Went with my work department to experience the Restaurant Week lunch menu. The service was excellent and food was delicious. We all ordered a different dish from the menu and we were all pleased. I think the chicken parm was AMAZING! I will return again in the future.

    D'Angelo's has been in the same spot on the block of 20th Street between Spruce and Locust for over 20 years. That says something right there as restaurant turnaround just across the street is a problem. Food is consistently good (if pricey), the waitstaff are very friendly, and the ambience inside is great. I wouldn't want to eat outside, as the tables are crowded together and from the looks of it you're forced to deal with pedestrians walking past you at all times. But that's not a problem for me since I prefer indoor dining anyway, so 5 stars for sure!

  • No champagne

    Dined on 5/19/2014
    Sadly our big celebration was off to a rough start when our party sat for 20 minutes unattended waiting for our champagne only to then learn they couldn't open the cellar. While unfortunate but understandable, the poor rating stems from the lack of service and attention while we waited (and waited). Typically there would be some consideration made - but there was none.

    The garlic-infused olive oil was fantastic and the penne arrabiata was very good, too. I was told the specials by my waiter and was surprised when I heard another waiter give a more elaborated list to another table, especially since there were dishes on his list I would have been interested in. I was extremely disappointed when I was served a half-frozen piece of chocolate cake. If it isn't ready to serve, they shouldn't offer it, especially since it isn't on a menu but part of a list of choices the waiter gives you.

    Food quality was great. Taste was amazing. I very much enjoyed our food. Good selection on the menu too. I look forward to go back. The noise was quiet but I believe that's because we were there so late. I have a feeling during prime seating it could get very loud, but that won't stop me from going again. And people were still being seated at 10pm, which is great.

    I hadn't been here for over 10 years. I was taking my daughter downtown and decided to show her one of my favorite spots from the past. They gave us this tiny cocktail table on the first floor. When I said I had requested a table by the window or a booth, the hostess said they had no booths and the one table by the window was already occupied. When I told her I had a reservation with open table she left and came back with the owner and said we could move to the other side of the room that had a L-shaped couch with a table in front of it. The food was disappointing. The worst part of the experience was after I paid, the waiter came back and said the bill was incorrect and I needed to pay an additional $16.00. I will never return!

    The food was definitely sitting out for a while. It was cramped and overpriced. Needless to say my boyfriend picked it on the sole basis that they sold chicken parm. Luckily we had ice cream at the Franklin fountain after and it made the night all better. I wouldn't suggest this place to anyone nor will I be returning. Could have made a much better meal at home or gone to a freeking pizza place for more authentic and homemade Italian food. Literally go to a pizza place before this place the oil with herbs was the best part and I would have gladly drank that for dinner over my pasta and shrimp which was for sure made the night before. My boyfriends chicken parm tho was pretty okay I will say that. If you go here good luck.

    The food was pretty good, especially the spaghetti and meatballs. But, the service was slow and we had to remind our waitress several times to bring various items. We never did get our sparkling water. My husband ordered the Veal Marsala, which underwhelmed him. I don't think we'll be going back anytime soon.

    Saw the ad for this place in America's Cuisine magazine in my hotel room. So we scheduled a business dinner on a Friday evening with someone from Valley Forge, PA, someone from Princeton, NJ, someone from Collingswood, NJ and the reviewer who convinced them to enjoy old school Italian in the city. Some shared apps - stuffed mushrooms, fried calamari, and a two signature salads got the dinner started right. Wonderful service added to the classic dishes including - Lobster Fra Diavlo, stuffed flounder, double cut veal chop, and an Italian NY strip that was big enough for everyone to get a taste. Served with a solid bottle of Chianti at a fair price, this was a great place to meet, and a great meal too!
