Italian
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.

Very disappointing meal, and an incompetent manager ruined our evening.
We are regulars who dine there 3-4 month. One of my favorite dishes is the salmon, it’s advertised on the menu as being prepared with marinated cherry tomatoes, but it was served over a marinara sauce.
When I brought it to the mangers attention, he responded that’s the way I always see it come out.
I’ve never seen this manager before, and sincerely doubt he has any idea how dishes are prepared.
When I tried to tell him to simply read the menu description, he ignored my comment.
In addition the salmon was over cooked and dried out.
I know there are labor shortages, and if that was the reason, then I would understand, but I was charged for the entree, even though I only ate a small part of it, and he never apologized.

We were a table of 6 at table 92

If it had not been for the wait staff, this would be the worst review I've ever given out for a restaurant. Although they were nice enough to divide the pizza ordered as an appetizer into two different types (mushroom on half/pear with gorgonzola the other half) the toppings were sparse making the pizza bland.
The lobster tail on a bed of linguini with oil and garlic was dry and tasteless. The lobster was barely edible!! I informed the waiter but nothing was done.
One person in our party had scallops which she said were very good.

My boyfriend and I are huge foodies and wanted to venture out so we made a reservation for Angelo Elia Pizza. They promoted tapas, which we love, and we enjoy Italian food. Our reservation was for 6:15 and we arrived early, maybe 6 PM. We arrived and was greeted by two gentlemen, the valet. They were helpful and pleasant. Then, we walked up to the host stand where we were greeted by a young lady. She was unwelcoming and told my boyfriend and I that we HAD to sit outside, even though 80% of the dining room was available. She was rude and gave us a look of disgust and judgment. We moved forward and said outside was fine. So she showed us to the terrace where there were four booths in each corner and about 6-8 plastic tables with paper as their table cloths. All of the booths were occupied except for one and all of the plastic tables were vacant. Then, the host tells us “you can sit at any of the middle tables”. I wasn’t sure why I wasn’t given the option to sit in the vacant booth so I asked her “ just the middle tables?”. She told me yes. Since we had no choice, we sat at the plastic table in the middle. This initial encounter set me back and made me uncomfortable. It made it hard to enjoy the what was supposed to be a fun and romantic evening with my boyfriend. Also, the service was fine but the food quality didn’t match the prices. We were recommended to try the prosciutto wrapped provolone. It came out cold and unappealing. The cheese looked liked it was once melted but formed solid again. It was confusing so my boyfriend asked the server if it was supposed to be a cold dish or a hot dish. We were told that it was was supposed to be a hot dish. The calamari was just ok. Without the sauce, there would be no flavor. I wouldn’t qualify these dishes as tapas though. Just average size appetizers. After all of this, we decided to end our experience early. This was a disappointment for the both of us. Unfortunately, we will not be returning.

The claims were bad had to sent back and another dish ordered in its place. At no time did a manager stop by our table or the waiter to apologize. It could have been handled better especially since we are regulars.

Everyone in our group enjoyed the menu choices and the ambiance. In particular the salmon entree as well as the Eggplant Parmigiana were both highly praised , all choices were pleasing to the eye as well as the palate.
Our servers were pleasant, polite and helpful……thank you to a fine establishment for a wonderful dining experience.

Recommend for outdoor dining and fine food and service. Half priced happy hour drinks are a very good deal for a variety of wines and cocktails. We recommend the spicy mussels and clams appetizer ( not very spicy), ZUCCHINI FLOWERS appetizer and EGGPLANT PARMIGIANA entree and the special of the day fish entree (branzino with crab meat). Attentive server throughout the meal. Consistently good food.

Restaurant vibe was great. Clean, well dressed staff. Great menu. Food (Veal meatballs, eggplant parmigiana and Margarita pizza) was good but not memorable. I expected more "wow" food for a high-end pizzeria. Our waitress was abrupt and borderline rude. She threw down our food and mumbled to us during the entire meal. She huffed in disgust when my husband asked politely to have clean silverware after our appetizer course. Maybe she was just having a bad day but inexcusable nonetheless. My husband and I are the most polite guests. Perhaps I was disappointed b/c I compared it to your flagship Casa D'Angelo restaurant in FLL. Casa D'Angelo is a 10/10. Food, service, and meals are stellar in every way; it's our favorite restaurant in South Florida.

We sat outside so no problem with noise . Food was even better than I remembered ( haven’t been there in a while). Great place for fabulous pizza and a salad.. next time will go for the seafood, which they also do well !
Service was good, although server didn’t know much about wines.. but we figured it out .
Very nice to return to a place I haven’t been in awhile and it continues to be a very good experience! Highly recommend it !

Very unusual to have slow service in your restaurant. My Branzino, grilled, was very dry, was offered no sauce, though cooked properly.
Friend's shrimp with pasta was totally shrimp-deficient!!!--only 4!
We moved to different outside table because the A/C unit supplying our table was OFF!

Please FIX this.

Dinner is always a pleasure! So nice to see the manager walking around the tables and asking if everything is good. We went for "oyster night". They are the best! We could probably devour 2 dozen each, but didn't want to make pigs of ourselves, so we got a modest 1 dozen each. Then we had the calamari soup - EXCELLENT! It's prepared in a light tomato broth with veggies, lots of garlic, calamari and shrimp. And of course, we had to have some pasta! Didn't have room for dessert - next time!

Decent Italian food, but unfortunately not authenticate Italian. Many dishes have been Americanized. Zucchini Flowers are authentic Italian but overpriced at $4 per (small) flower. Eggplant Parmigiana has crushed garlic in sauce (definitely not authentic Italian). Sauces are laid on thick and in huge amounts unlike in Italy.
