The food was really mediocre. The service was fine because we were the only customers.
This restaurant is really a nicer than average pizza place. The prices are not.

We were looking forward to an authentic Italian dinner, and instead found Angelo Bellini's sub-par food, from the dry rolls and bland "seasoned" oil for dipping, to the nondescript calamari (reminiscent of a Sysco product), gelatinous chicken piccata and truly inedible eggplant parmigiana, the meal was a disappointing start to our dining weekend in NYC.

It is not worth the price. The food was bland. On arrival I ordered a vodka tonic and it was not only warm (I had to request more ice on it) but also badly mixed, i should have figured out the rest from there. Won't be coming back.

Mediocre Italian food. The best thing to be said is that it was hot. Bread was thumb-sized pieces of frozen dough. Noisy with one adjacent party disrupting the entire restaurant. Definitely to be avoided

We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere! Food came quickly and was very good. Other than the lady at the next table complaining the whole time and letting her kid run around, it was fantastic. That’s not on Angelo Bellini’s, she was a pain for the staff too.

It was disappointing , to say the least. We were 10 people and according to their website they offer. three levels of pre fixed dinners. When we ordered, and there were only four other guests in the place, they informed us we all had to do pre fixed or everything was a la carte. They refused to turn on the ac until we were midway through the meal. The food was mediocre and the manager/owner rude. This was two steps down compared to my regal dining, but, I order in from them occasionally. Poor food, no ac, bait and switch menu . Why is open table supporting this joint?

We found the restaurant cosy and quiet and the staff were very attentive. We ordered pizzas and a pasta dish and they were generous portions. The 12” pizza is more than enough for one person! Location - it’s a bit off the beaten track but certainly worth a visit.

The food was fantastic! One of the best meals we had during our recent weekend visit.

In addition, the service was excellent.

It would have been better had the air conditioning been on because the restaurant was quite warm with the doors open to the outside; the outside doors being open also allowed the smoke from people smoking g outside to enter the restaurant which also detracted from our experience.

It was my first time there. I ordered the chicken marsala with penne. The chicken was well-cooked and tender, but the marsala sauce lacked much taste. I would go back but try something with a tomato sauce next time. My friend liked her spinach ravioli with pesto sauce.

We are vegetarians and ordered a salad and pizza. Unfortunately the minestrone soup was made with chicken stock, so not available for us. The salad was fine, but nothing special. There was plenty for the three of us to share. We ordered a large pizza and it was very good. I agree with another reviewer that they should have some fresh Parmesan cheese, but I don't add it to pizza anyway, so I didn't notice. We didn't try any other entrees. The staff was fine; our server was fairly new, but offered to pour us a sample of two different wines we could try before deciding on which we wanted. The prices were reasonable and we enjoyed the food and experience.

We went at 5pm on Mother’s Day, party of 8 with 2 very young children, and two teens. The restaurant was empty which worked out well for us but a little off putting. We were all so pleasantly surprised. The food was great, typical red sauce Italian fare. The service couldn’t be better and the price was fair. They do a high take out business which may account for the empty restaurant, given the awful weather. I would definitely return! Perfect place for families!!

Food very good. Veal piccati excellent. Service good. Amazingly, for an Italian place, they were out of Chianti. The alternative wine was good but overpriced as retails for about $17 (per Vivino) but marked up to $80.

We lucked out and the restaurant wasn't busy when we arrived for our reservation at 6:15p.m. on a Saturday night. Celebrated my nieces 11th birthday and the staff were incredibly kind to her and us. The playlist was also perfect for her! Good food, service and conversation. We'll be back!

We stumbled across this place several years ago. Loved the pizzza! We were back in NY and wanted to go back. We new the general area it was in but couldn’t remember the name. I googled pizza and looked at the images and remembered the bar and the brick walls! We were so happy we found it again! They didn’t disappoint! Our waitress was a lovely young girl that was very sweet and attentive!

The food was fine, but nothing special. The service was aloof, non-attentive and just generally poor. We had a disagreement with the waitress about the 2 bottles of wine that we had ordered. No concession on their part that the wrong wine had been served. They made us feel like we were the idiots. Never checked if we needed anything during our meal. The restaurant was mostly empty when we arrived and they put us at a table that was too small for our party. Generally an unpleasant dining experience. Won’t be back.

I was disappointed with the approach of the restaurant. I ordered the calzone and had hoped to order a side of ravioli as well. I was eating by myself. The waitress said they could not accommodate my request. Being that it was 7 PM on a Saturday night and at one point I was the only customer in the restaurant, I was a little surprised by her response. The food on the menu was reasonably priced.

First we ordered the cold antipasto. It was a plate of lunch meat with 2 postage sized pieces of cheese. Then I ordered the veal Piccata The sauce was good but the veal was very tough. Then I ordered the”chocolate soufflé. It should not be listed as chocolate soufflé, it was nothing but a warm chocolate cake. Not impressed at all.

This restaurant is what I call “fake” Italian dining. It felt more like a corner store pizza shop then Italian dining. There was not even fresh Parmesan.
