About Angelo Elia Pizza, Wine Bar and Tapas - Oakland Park
We are currently experiencing internet connectivity issues as a result of hurricane Irma. Reservations can be made by contacting the restaurant directly.
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.

Angelo Elia Pizza, Wine Bar and Tapas - Oakland Park Ratings and Reviews
Had asked the place to make the meal extra special for my son’s birthday (asked on the reservation; reminded them when I arrived). They first refused to give us the table we requested then begrudgingly have in. The
entire meal was rushed— appetizers and the meal all arrived at the same time (HUGE) pet peeve of mine. I would have simply walked out after the hostess’s attitude but for my son; the worst part is my husband and the kids go to this restaurant once weekly; no restaurant should ever treat one of their regulars this way. I won’t be going back.
I was on the final day of a business trip with my wife in the warm weather of Fort Lauderdale and we took a recommendation from Open Table to visit Angelo’s. The location is pretty central to the beach area. The decor is clean, bright and very contemporary. Service was very good considering it was very busy. The food was amazing. I had the lasagna (great mix of sausage and cheese in the sauce) and my wife had the chicken parmigiana (lightly breaded and the pasta was cooked to a perfect al Dante). The menus has so many great Italian favorites. From pizza to pasta, from minestrone to home-made gelato, it is simple, well prepared and traditional. We will definitely be back for seconds next time we are in town.
2 minor ambiance issues; table very wobbly - they found something to stuff under one of the table legs; white paper “tablecloth” was saturated in 2 areas with oil; when we mentioned it, they brought a new paper, had us help take everything off the table and sloppily put a clean paper over the dirty paper; it did not line up with the table and was all buckled.
We enjoyed angelos very much. Food was delicious. Our waiter was Dijohn. He was so charming with a smile all the time. Could not have been any better!
One criticism I have is that the bread was like a piece of white toast. We enjoy dipping bread in olive oil but not this bread.
Restaurant has a happy atmosphere.
Going to Angelo Elia’ s Pizza is like visiting a friend’s house. The staff is warm and engaging and Susanna is our favorite waitress, as she always greets us with a smile and anticipates our needs. The core menu is delicious, the specials are seasonally inventive, and the chef is accommodating to make other items upon request as long as the ingredients are available., which is great! The interior is sleek and modern and the atmosphere is lively, even on Monday nights when the wines by the bottle are 1/2 price. Save room for the homemade gelato and molten chocolate cake to cap off a wonderful evening. Trust me, you will be back to visit this neighborhood gem!
Very good entrees, try the lasagna. Prices are reasonable. Pictures on OpenTable are representative of the upscale casual setting. Valet parking is an unusual touch on a Sunday, when I could have gotten my own car faster. The restaurant was busy at 6 p.m. on a Sunday, so they're doing a lot right. I'll try the pizza at my next visit.
We've eaten here many times, but the special, veal scallopini on Friday night was disappointing for two of us. Very tough and pounded paper thin. Maybe grilled veal is not a good choice.
The pasta is always good and the service is excellent.
Food was awesome. One of the best Italian places in Ft. Laud even though quite pricy for a lunch ($20 chicken parm). The waiter was horrible....took so long to be waited on for anything...taking our order especially the dessert order was painstakingly slow. If we didnt love the nutella stromboli enough, we would have walked out for waiting so long.
When we arrived, the restaurant didn't have our reservation from Open Table for some reason. I spent the first 15 minutes trying to prove that we did have one to the manager. He just wanted to make sure that our reservation wasn't for one of their other locations but my reservation was clearly for this location.
After we established that we were at the correct location, we ordered a couple of appetizers... the veal meatballs and calamari. The meatballs were delicious. I wasn't a fan of the calamari because I found it to be tough.
We had Caesar salads next, and they were delicious. Our party of four all agreed that we should have split the salads because they were rather large, but again delicious.
We ordered two pizzas, the margarita and the other was sausage and mushroom. Both were delicious.
The restaurant was completely filled inside which made it very loud and hard to hold a conversation, but this was the first time we experienced this in all of the times that we dined there.
