    We've always loved Deangelos for classics like chicken, veal or Steak with their burnt onions, ziti & asparagus, the Milan Salad & The Special Chopped antipasti. My wife & I just returned from Rome and were dreaming About the pasta. Guess what? We were blown away By Chef's amazing carbonara spaghetti! Not on the menu, but If your lucky, Bon appetito!

    I make a once a year trip to Philly for the PMA show at the Convention Center. Haven't missed D'Angelos in 10 years. We love the food and the whole experience. The broccoli rabe and housemade sausage is a must. The veal chop special is amazing. This is old world Italian food at it's best!

    This is a great little neighborhood place. Basically, red sauce Italian. Nothing spectacular but good, consistently. I've eaten there 3 or 4 times in the past 6 months and always left satisfied with leftovers of the huge portions.

  • Too many other places to try
    tedd
    Dined on 11/2/2013
    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.

    I would have loved the food if it was seasoned. I understand that some people are allergic to some seasons, but you have different herbs & spices that could be added to food that would give food a taste. I had the Salmon and pasta (just needed it to have some kind of taste). The service at the restaurant was excellent.

    D'Angelo's is a little off the beaten path to where I would normally go for lunch location wise, but I am so happy I did! The hostess wished me a happy birthday as soon as we arrived and asked our preference for sitting inside or out. The owner also sang me happy birthday, which was great. We each had the signature D'Angelo's salad, it was so interesting... in a good way (think egg, bacon, shrimp, and an awesome house dressing). I had the lobster ravioli, which was in the most amazing sauce. My guest had the chicken parm and seemed very pleased with it. Dessert included, of course, delicious canolis! We were very pleased and will both be back in the future.

    Dined on 9/24/2013
    We had a group of 7 co-workers take advantage of restaurant week lunch menu. All 7 remarked how wonderful the food was both in quantity and taste. Salads, particularly the house special, were excellent, the main dishes of veal parm, chicken parm and lobster ravioli were delicious and the dessert cannoli did not disappoint! It was not overly crowded during our 12:15 reservation so it made for a nice quiet lunch experience. I would not be a bit surprised if some, if not all, of us take a walk there to try the regular lunch or dinner menu in the future.

    Living in South Philadelphia and having a tremendous number of Italian restaurants to choose from, it was really pleasant to find a nice Italian place place in Center City that had everything that your looking for in a quality dining experience. A nice ambiance comfortable and relaxed, an excellent waiter ( Vince) and really quality food. We'll definitely be back again.

  • Like stepping into old world Italy
    JB22VIP
    Dined on 8/15/2013
    In town on business, has seen this restaurant featured in America's Cuisine Philadelphia in my hotel room. We were looking for some old world Italian classics and found them here! Broccoli Rabe with fried hot sausage, stuffed mushrooms and a huge plate of caprese Buffalo mozzarella and tomato salad were are shared appetizers. Dinner entrees included the table side filet of dover sole, the biggest veal chop I'd ever seen, and the "fruit of the sea" pasta. Wonderful presentation and even better execution from the kitchen. Delicious meal was followed by three ICE COLD limoncello after-dinner drinks and the perfect way to end this old world Italian meal. Order for all sides of this menu - you will not be disappointed!

    Dined on 7/19/2013
    As we were celebrating an anniversary, my husband and I shared the steak for two with burned onions. I just love it. The quality of the meat is really good, and it is well prepared. Their wine list is better than average, so we had a lovely dinner. The noise level varies. If there are big groups, it can be pretty noisy, if not, it's fine. Eating outside on a pleasant evening is nice too.

    I took my girlfriend for dinner here last Friday night and we both sincerely enjoyed the experience. The staff was very knowledgeable of the wine list and made a delicious recommendation. Plus they were all so attentive (even the "water guy" Roger) and told us up front that they would be willing to make custom orders. The food was delicious and my rigatoni was cooked to absolute al dente perfection! The restaurant is quaint and quiet, just what we were looking for. I highly recommend this dining experience to anyone looking for great Italian food and the excellent service that comes along with it.

    As usual, the food was very good. The only surprise came at the time of the check, when we found out that the appetizer we shared cost $25. That was more than my entree. The waiter did not mention the cost of any of the specials, which included the appetizer that we ordered. If you go to D'Angelo's, ask the waiter what the specials cost before you order them, otherwise you are in for an unpleasant surprise.

    The food was very tasty and the staff was very nice. My major complaint was the table. We were in a room off the bar area with a couple of large parties. Not idea for a table of two celebrating a birthday. That most certainly changed and downgraded the experience. Our experience in the other dinning room was much more pleasant. The staff offered to move us, but the only other room that had availability had a party of 50.

    This restaurant never lets us down, it is consistently the best Italian food in Philadelphia! I also get the chicken parm and it is unbelievable. All their food is freshly prepared and reasonable priced for the high quality your getting. Also their is a dance/small club below the restaurant so after dinner you can walk downstairs and dance and listen to good music!

    We love to visit this "Neighborhood Gem" when we get to the city. It's a great classic Italian Family owned Restaurant. The food is ALWAYS EXCELLENT! This last visit was on a Monday night. We sat upstairs next to the window overlooking the white lighted trees outside. It was quiet and lovely. The chicken escarole soup was the best that I've ever had and my Braciolletini was amazing! I Highly Recommend!
