Opening Angelo Elia Pizza, Wine Bar and Tapas - Oakland Park was a passion of Chef Angelo Elia for more than eight years. While Casa D'Angelo has been a place for him to showcase his depth of Italian technique, he wanted to create a restaurant that felt more like the simple Italy he visits year after year where ingredients are at the forefront. A place where you could come and sit and pick at food as you want with friends. But it didn't come that easy. Like all things that are simple, careful thought and research has gone into the menu and the guarded sources of our premium ingredients. In the end, D’Angelo is all about friends and a good bottle of wine enjoyed in a contemporary, easy dining atmosphere.

Went for Mother’s day celebration. Service was horrible.
Slow and they got us one wrong item. I am a customer of the Weston location and I have never had bad service in Weston.

Love sitting on the veranda! The ambiance is lovely, except for the traffic noises (especially from motorcyclists). Not your fault!
Our waiter, Victor, was fantastic and made our dining experience wonderful! Thank you Victor!

I’ve been to Angelo Elia many many times, but last night was the first time since the pandemic. My party was seated on the East patio in the northeast corner. It was so noisy, due to street traffic. With the noise and the terrible service, it was not a good evening. Our server, whose name I can’t remember- but we recognized as having worked there for several years, was absolutely terrible. He left the table before everyone placed dinner orders (we had to track him down to come back) he was slow to bus dirty dishes between courses and once the entrees arrived, he failed to make sure everyone had utensils. So, we again had to track him down for utensils. Not a good time.

First visit here and will return. Great selection of tapas and first placed we’ve found in So FL that offers zucchini flowers. They were stuffed, lightly breaded and fried. We also had the buffarella with prosciutto. Also had the Pizza Rustica and this pizza was probably the closest to what we’ve had in Italy. Appreciated that we had time to eat our tapas before the pizza was delivered. Only thing that we didn’t care for was the Nutella Pizza although there was nothing wrong with it.

The place is light which is a nice change from so many dark interiors.

Lots of employees handling tables and others servicing take out, which seemed to be a thriving business.

Mariana is the BEST server!! We had delicious Blue Point oysters -- fresh, no sand, and sweet. We're 'regulars' and love this restaurant. After I made reservations thru Open Table, the restaurant called to find out where we would like to be seated. We chose the the South Patio. And -- they allowed us to reserve 2 dozen oysters for our dinner!!

I was not told my reserved table would be next to a very very loud birthday party of approximately 20+ people and a mariachi band that was impossibly loud. I should have been warned and no viable alternative was available except for indoor dining. Really unacceptable.

This place has been a favorite of mine for may years. The food is excellent, freshly prepared and steaming hot. The pizza's are the best around as are the salads. Great menu for moderate price but well worth the visit

By far - the best pizza in South Florida. Love the entire menu...the patio is divine and the servers attentive and knowledgeable . Each location is consistent - outstanding ingredients, perfect preparation, and closest we have here in South Florida to an authentic Italian Trattoria. Thanks to Elia and the entire staff!

I eat and Angelo Elia at least once or twice a week because the food is very good.
This past Saturday night 3/13/21, the service was the worst I have ever experienced in any restaurant. When I complained to the manager on the way out, his response was well you know we are dealing with Covid. Poor excuse, since I have been eating at the restaurant all during Covid and never had such horrible service. I actually could have walked out without paying the check since no one paid attention to my table.
Very said that his Manager is so disinterested in the customers.

I am sad that they dropped all Eggs benedict dishes from the Sunday Brunch menu. My favorite included Bacon, Shrimp & Broccolini. Hoping they add these choices back soon.

We definitely enjoyed our meal and our server and the other staff took great care of us. we love those veal meatballs and order these and pizza delivered regularly.

i think we may go back to delivery as the parking at the restaurant was problematic.
five minutes sitting on Federal Hwy with our turn signal on, behind a line of cars, only to finally be told by a valet parking guy that we had to make a U turn and go back two blocks to park in the bank parking lot.
Isn't that the job of the valet? Why did WE have to walk two blocks to/from the restaurant, me in heels? we'll think twice before dining in the restaurant again unless they straighten out the valet parking issue.

The oysters were very fresh & delicious. The manager recommended calling a day in advance (on Tuesdays) to reserve the amount (dozens) you plan on ordering. The beef carpaccio, greek salad & veal cutlet were all excellent. Service was also very good.
