Angelo’s Wine Bar, a modern Italian-American restaurant, originally opened in 1962 as a casual take out pizzeria. As the neighborhood grew so did Angelo’s. In 2015 the restaurant closed for a massive facelift which included launching a new wine program and new menu concept.

Chef Samuel Leal's menu features fresh, seasonal ingredients procured from around the world. Taking his cues from family, past experiences, and the tastes of the local neighborhood, he reaches beyond our traditional Italian-American concept. Chef constantly delivers surprises that include flavors from Asia, Latin-America, the wider Mediterranean, and even into the heartland of Midwest America.

Leal's menu aligns with the international focus of the restaurant's wine program, curated by House Sommelier, Gigi Bredoux. The extensive bottled wine lists focuses on small production wines from boutique vineyards from around the world. Thirty wines are offered by the glass, including six poured from the barrel.

Angelos is a great place that keeps wining best date spot. For this reason, I choose to take my lady there and enjoy a night for wine, good food and conversation, However, when we got there, the tv's were showing games, making it less intimate and more about the game. This may be on me, but I was trying to have my attention on my date, but the crowd resembled more of a sports bar. This place is outstanding, but my understanding of what a date wine place should be was off. Still, the food was phenomenal and they carry Oyster Bay. I still highly recommend checking it out, but be wary of the atmosphere you are walking into.

Several menu items were 86’d, so that was a little disappointing. The items we ended up with were great however. Service was outstanding-Gigi was totally knowledgeable with food and wine.
Live music was a plus…the band was fabulous!

Staffing is short like all places, but we are very understanding of that. Really hope people come back to work. This great "find" needs the help! Food, wine, and atmosphere is hard to beat! Love to see Megan's happy face every time we go. Chris was our waiter and he was working his butt off, but always with a smile.

The deviled eggs were fantastic. I like deviled eggs and these are VERY good. Some of the best Ive had in chicago. The pizzas were solid (I got the spicy Hawaiian and my husband got the mushroom). The desserts were horrendous. The cannoli was soggy and the cake was dry. Not worth the calories. Would def go back again but skip dessert.

Disorganized at best.
Restaurant was about half full.
Food is greasy and salty
Long wait time between courses as well as with beverages.
Price/value is poor. Expensive pricing, mediocre food, slow service

We went here on a Monday for the live blues. At first, we went to the sit at the bar but it started filling up so we moved to a table. It took about 10 minutes before anyone even came to take our drink order. When the gentleman arrived (he seemed like he was the host and waiter) he was very friendly. I forget what we ordered but that took awhile as well event though the place was not that busy at all. Dining during Covid era, we have found that many restaurants are short staffed and just lacking all around. The live music was great but not sure we would go out of our way to go back to this restaurant.

We have loved Angelo's for years, and we had another great dinner last night. Gigi, the sommelier, took the time to recommend some incredible wines and talk in detail about them, while providing prompt and attentive service. She's always great, and last night was no exception. The bruschetta, drunken bucatini, and pizzas always deliver. I tried the shrimp pizza last night for the first time and LOVED it. They also had half price bottles of wine and live jazz last night- truly can't be beat.

I just love this place- have for years. Can't wait for more great dinners to come!

Went to Angelo’s to celebrate my birthday. First time here and no regrets. It was a great, relaxing place to have great food and drinks. Everyone enjoyed their dinner and dessert was a great way to end the night. Very chill, inviting environment and excellent service. Glad I randomly found on it on Open Table. Definitely looking forward to coming back.

The food was delicious and service was great. I had the flights and bites which I highly recommend. They were very accommodating and let me switch one of the wines. It is a little pricey but most places in the city are. My only complaint is the temp. It was very hot outside and inside. Unfortunately it made the wines warmer than they should be. I switched to cocktails after my flight and they were delicious too. I will be going back!

Casual setting in a local wine bar. You won't miss the game here with televisions on the wall throughout. However, it is not a sports bar when it comes to the food, the libations and the service. All three were outstanding and the atmosphere was pleasant with large open windows and a jazz duo playing in the bar.
