    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!

    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.

    D'Angelo's was a perfect spot to carb load before the Broad Street Run - great and vibrant neighborhood off the main drag of center City Philly....Food was top notch as was the service as many in our party were unable to join because of various traffic stoppages in Philly that evening

    Have not been to D'Angelo's for a number of years so I was looking forward to a return visit. It wasn't great, it wasn't awful, just "meh." Not what I remember it to be. Seems to be "tired" in terms of food, decor, etc.

    This is a neighborhood favorite of ours. We are addicted to the pasta with garlic and anchovies. The service is normally good unless you get the woman upstairs. Ask for another table if you do.

    Dinner was great. The penne arrabiata was delicious. Dessert was less so. Their cheesecake isn't so good. Otherwise, it's a good place to go. We are outside, which was really nice.

    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!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 2/14/2014
    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.

    Everything here was very good, as the title says. But I do believe it was a bit overpriced. That being said, it is probably due mostly to location and surrounding competition. So, I would say its worth it and would probably dine here again.

    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!

    Came to D'Angelo's on a Friday night to unwind after a long week of classes. We were greeted at the door, coats were checked and we were shown to our table. It is a cozy, but not cramped dining area upstairs. Our server was very nice and helpful, but the service could have been a bit faster. We had the caprese salad and stuffed mushrooms for an appetizer and tagliatelle and chicken Florentine, as well as a glass of wine. All of the food was delicious and the portions were generous. All in all, this was a very good restaurant and I woiuld recommend giving them a try if you are in the mood for a nice Italian meal

    This was my first time dining at D'Angelo's & I have to say it is the best Italian food I have had in a restaurant. (I am Italian) The pasta is homemade, everything is fresh, not swimming in garlic like a lot of other "Italian" restaurants. Meat was tender, even my very picky husband & daughter loved it. We will definitely be back!

    It was OK. But, I was hoping for something a bit more special. I think it could have been better, but the seating was not that comfortable (one of those deals where one side of the table is a booth bench and the other side is real chairs, and there is a table so close that you are sharing the "booth" with the people next to you), our waiter had a lackluster personality, and desert (it was my wife's birthday, which I had told the restaurant ahead of time) was pitiful. The food was OK but not memorable. The only real good part: my son and daughter could find something on the menu they would eat, but that is not a ringing endorsement. I was hoping and trying for more. Too many places to try before going back to D'Angelos (unfortunately).

    This restaurant has been around forever and I'd forgotten about it. I ate here about a month ago and was surprised and delighted how delicious it was...so I brought a friend to celebrate his birthday. He is a true gourmet and was skeptical of my choice. Our dinner was excellent and he now says he's a convert to D'Angelo's, too.
