Casa D' Angelo Ratings and Reviews
As always the the food, ambience and staff are great. I eat at Casa di Angelo at least when i visit the area. My only slight critisism is the fact thT nearly everthi g co tains cheese, which im allergic to. In the past tbey jave prepared dishes ezpecially for me minus the cheese. Sadly this time they said they werr to busy.
It's always a special treat to dine at Casa D' Angelo. Everything about our night out there was wonderful. The food was fabulous as was the service. The new expansion was so nice and made the restaurant look so much more inviting. We look forward to dining there again in the very near future.
Our second visit on a vacation to Ft Laud. My husbands experience wasn’t as good as our last but I loved it. Our waiter got one of our salads wrong and his main course not excellentp. Food is tremendous. Authentic menu and serve staff. You’d never know you’re in a strip mall restaurant. I love the place. Not sure I’ll get the hub to go back. Shared a salad, app, 2 main courses, shared a spectacular tiramisu , 2 coffees, 2 drinks each, bill $190. I say worth it.
Disappointing! Never got a water refill. Never was asked if I wanted another glass of wine, Ordered the branzino that was a "special for the evening" and it came out on a plate that had the fish in a watery liquid with three sliced Roma tomatoes. Ten minutes later a server came with a small bowl of three brussels sprouts and a few roasted potatoes. Since the two-top next to me was empty, it was a perfect place for a diner to have a loud cell phone conversation. The waitress had absolutely no personality, but she seemed very busy.
Should have gone to Cafe Vico
There were 4 of us dining and we had not seen each other in over a year. We had a perfect table in the back corner, and the noise level was very low - even though the restaurant was filled to capacity. Our waiter, Carl, made this wonderful restaurant an even better place to dine. Everything about this place is excellent; thanks, Carl, for making our evening memorable; we will be back soon.
A well known, well regarded Italian restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale, Casa D’Angelo has a robust following; reservations are highly recommended.
We arrived for our early 6PM reservation (we were going to the Gershwin show at The Parker Playhouse), and the restaurant, which offers indoor/outdoor seating was beginning to get busy. By the time 7 rolled around “the joint was jumpin’”.
Upon our arrival, we were promptly seated, water glasses filled and our server, Samuel, came over to help us with the menu and recite an extensive “specials” list.
We started with 2 special appetizers.
The Grilled Octopus (those that read my reviews know I love octopus). This was an exceptional preparation – with a delicious grilled flavor, it was cooked slightly charred to tender perfection.
We also enjoyed the delicious Zucchini Blossoms stuffed with mascarpone cheese and prosciutto, lightly deep fried – in a word, remarkable.
For his entrée my partner ordered a menu mainstay – Costoletta Milanese – a breaded, pounded-thin Veal chop, fried topped with an arugula salad. A+++
I ordered the Branzino, a mild tasting fish, prepared in a light tomato sauce with olives and capers (Livornese style). The fish was most flavorful and cooked to perfection. With it, I enjoyed a side of Rapini – an Italian green with a rather bitter flavor. I grew up on it, so it’s delicious to me. Perhaps not for everyone’s taste.
After 2 Double Espressos, we were on our way to the show.
Casa D’Angelo is well-worth a visit.
Overall it was good however the mushroom pasta needed about a ton of Parmesan because otherwise it was tasteless. The shrimp pasta was ok. Better than the mushroom pasta for sure. The eggplant appetizer was way mushy and the flower appetizer was mostly all batter. The wine selection is superb
I have been waiting for a long time to get up the dosh to visit the lead restaurant of Chef Elia.
We had tried his newest restaurant offerings and were nervously anticipating this flagship of his would live up to his superb reputation. And we were not disappointed. The rooms however are noisy; and the tables for two are crowded together. I worry the restaurant is geared more toward expense account or conventioneers chatter than romantic dining. But not too bad. The service was delightful. Attentive and helpful. Very quickly a small amuse-bouche of onion Pizza and Bruschetta arrives.
Our mains split the large bone-in grilled veal chop --perfectly cooked to our liking and tasty. The kitchen shared it well and each was plated with a small artichoke. Our pasta was a freshly made Pappardelle in a porcine mushroom Ragu. Very light. balanced and tasty, the sauce not overpowering the mushroom flavors; Dessert was a nice portion of fresh blueberries and strawberries in a fresh sabayon (custard). Fantastic.
The wine list is gigantic. Need a week to just turn all the pages. There are many a pricey wine —the back wall of the inner room attests to the sizable cave on hand—yet you can find good value in some of the categories. Our waiter was very helpful in discussing our selection.
At our exit, an extra was to be greeted by Chef Elia. Always good to see the chef interested in seeing what’s going on outside of his kitchen!
I booked a table for my wife’s birthday. We arrived early and decided to eat at the bar since there was plenty of room. Service was sloooowww, even with a small crowd. Bread service arrived but the guy dropped half of it on the floor - and left it there. We finally got a drink and ordered. The food came and, unfortunately, neither of our meals had any flavor. Terribly disappointing. We’ve been here a number of times and it’s been great. Angelo tried to make it good but my wife was pretty bummed. I have to guve it to Angelo for trying to right the situation. That said, the food was just plain bad. If they can’t do lasagne or veal parmigiana, what can they do.
The restaurant boasts that it is the best up
Style Northern Italian restaurant in the entire state of Fl. Hard to prove and somewhat subjective statement by one of the team staff handling our table!
The main guy— waitstaff was very sure of himself
Very condensing with a gigantic attitude attached to himself..The guy seemed and asked like he is CEO of the restaurant Corp! The food was great well detailed by the other team waitstaff but the main guy SANDRO T we could do without his attitude and commentary. We would come back again for the food and ask that we don’t be seated anyway near that guy Sandro T trufully ..
