Italian
Angelo’s Wine Bar, an Italian fusion shared plates 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 wine program and new menu. Chef Samueal Leal rustic menu, featuring Midwest ingredients from valued local purveyors, takes its cue from her travels to South East Asia, South America, and Europe. Beyond reflecting the aromas, flavors and colors of the Italian explorers in its cuisine, Angelo's wine list focuses on boutique vineyards from Italy, France, and Spain with a nod to several excellent American producers.

Started out not to good for Valentine Date, but was quickly addressed by the owner and proprietor Berry. Made the special night much more memorable. Will definitely be dining here again and again. The food and selection of wine is very good, we highly recommend as a must try if ever in the area if Albany Park IL.

Overall it was a great experience and food was good. The only done side was the close proximity to other guest dinning. We would defiantly dine here again.

I live this place! I am a regular, so I know the staff, and they treat me well! I rarely order pizza there; have it delivered instead-the fig and prosciutto pizza is the best!

Angelo’s surprised me! It’s in an up-and-coming neighborhood and you wouldn’t expect it to be where it is. The food was great, specifically the lamb chops. The wine was what it needed to be and the employees were very attentive. It’s a great quiet spot for a date night!

This was a second visit to Angelo's on a Wednesday for 1/2 price wine and jazz -- which they promote on their website and in postcards in the check folder. The wine was 1/2 price, but for the second time there was no jazz. This was disappointing because I brought a client for specifically that reason. The service was great, his name is George I recall, and he remembered me from the previous visit a few weeks prior. I had the scallops and my client had the steak. Both were cooked properly and were tasty. We shared a caesar salad as I recalled it was almost a meal portion. It was pretty good, but the dressing was a bit bland -- I like my caesar to have a bit of a bite to it. The menu items are very reasonably priced. The server was great with some wine recommendations, too, and not just defaulting to the most expensive. He suggested a very nice pinot noir with soft tones that went well with both the steak and the scallops. Overall, I do recommend, I just wish they'd figure out the jazz thing. Don't promote it if you're not going to do it.

If you are staying in the downtown area, this is about a 20 minutes LYFT ride but it was well worth it. The food was fabulous as was the wine. Service was excellent.

Angelo's was quite a delight--we were expecting more traditional Italian, and they surprised us with an unique menu. You can still get a pizza along the lines of traditional Italian with thin, yet not dry, crust.

We had the Burrata Caprese to start, which was amazing . Smokey roasted tomatoes served along a large portion of fresh Burrata, drizzled with mouth-watering reduced balsamic. Crispy Cauliflower flavored with an unusual combination of slightly sweet, slightly savory light sauce. And the Lollipop Lamb continued the high-flavors. Wednesday is 1/2 price on bottles of wine!

Will 100% be going back- I think we found our new spot! The food was fantastic and ambiance was great. We ordered two small plates, a dessert and carafe of wine and it was the perfect amount and less than $60. The server was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly (Georges I think?)- we will be seeing him at Angelo’s soon!

What a wonderful surprise! Outdoor dining was beyond perfect. We hadn’t heard about this restaurant from anyone so we were just taking a chance. The food was absolutely delicious. We shared many small plates and were not disappointed with any of them. The bruschetta was extraordinary, the pizza was delicious, and everything in between was A+ on all of our scale. The food does not seem to be typical Italian, which made it more of a surprise. Overall I cannot speak highly enough about this restaurant. The inside might have been a little bit too noisy for our taste, but since we could eat outside it was perfect.

LOVE going here, it's a diamond in the rough. Very much a hidden gem of albony park. We always meet here with close family for dinner and whenever we have friends in town to visit. Great vibes and amazing service. The servers know the menu like the back of their hand and what everything taste like. I highly recommend the gamberetto pizza and the angelos red wine on tap, its my favorite combination.

This is one of my favorite places for a date night, or a girls' night out. They have great small plates for sharing, outstanding pizza, a fantastic wine list, and the staff is knowledgeable and friendly. There is something for everyone. My only complaint is it gets loud and conversation can be difficult.
