Food was absolutely fantastic, the only downside was my chocolate martini was made with Baileys & Kahlúa, for the price I probably should have told them what the ingredients are or the bartender should have told me that they don't make them.

Went for restaurant week of winter 2019 for lunch. Great food and attentive service! I was however, expecting a more unique and maybe avant-garde selection of dishes but then again why mess with the good ol’ Italian staple dishes if thats what you do best. Not the ideal place for trying something crazy and new but very ideal for classic Italiano!

On Saturday evening, 1/19/19, we went to D'Angelo's for a birthday dinner [which had been mentioned in my reservation request]. Hostess asked if we would like to sit upstairs or downstairs....I chose the main level, unaware that the second floor was not only a better choice [up a big flight of steps].
We were taken to this large dining room where there was a small children's birthday party and two other
parties of four and three empty two top tables against different walls. The host told me that at 10 PM, they have a disco with music in the area. Menus which have pages covered in plastic were all sticky.
Synopsis of dinner:
small table against wall
area had 0 ambiance
wait staff not attentive
appetizer order: mussels in red sauce ...arrived luke warm and had to go back to kitchen
2nd order: mixed green salad with small amt. roasted peppers which arrived as roasted peppers atop
greens....back to kitchen
Main courses: veal Francaise with escarole...veal tender and tasty, but escarole was overcooked and had no flavor
Veal Marsala : large portion with pasta on side [had requested sauce on side, but waiter did not understand and did not bring any sauce]
Veal dishes were $29. each which was overpriced for this restaurant

All in all, we will not be returning to this restaurant although it is located close to our home. Big disappointment!

Charming, old-time feel, good and basic Italian classics, competent kitchen, more than adequate wine selections, particularly Italian wines, and first class service from the moment you enter the door. It is a pretty restaurant and just feels like tke kind of place a young couple might dine for a third date and sit next to a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary.

Food was fantastic, perhaps pricey...but portions were generous. Our only problem was the check. We had 10 of us needing vouchers. They did one check and we needed to photograph to make copies for our business purposes. It would be nice if they could have done 10 separate checks. We spent 15 minutes figuring out what each member owed. I don't mean to be petty, but it's 2018...time to modernize a little. Otherwise the atmosphere was amazing and food fantastic.

I am very disappointed with my experience on Saturday night. There was numerous nats flying around our food. I advised the server and he did not think it was a big deal. I ordered a large salad with no shrimp and egg on side and add onions. I advised our server again how I thought the salad was very small. His answer to me was if I added the egg it would be large. I was still charged 12.50/ again no shrimp. Very disappointed. Also ordered appetizer of sausage and broccoli rabe and asked if I could have mild and sweet sausage. Was advise there was a up charge. I asked for vodka sauce on my side of pasta with my eggplant and was advised more money. Charged extra for melted mozzarella on my eggplant parm. Again very disappointed. The wine we ordered was 9.00 and the glass was so tiny. I work very hard for my money and felt it was a waste on this dinner. Dining area also had a odor to it that was not pleasant.

The food we ordered was delivered accurately, fresh and tasty. That was not really an issue. The restaurant is well kept and clean. All would've been well, except we got the check and had a $80 bar tab written. My partner got two glasses of wine, a beer and I got two beers. None of it should've added up to $80. When we inquired, they said it should be more and when we protested they grabbed some bottles out of the trash to try to justify their claim. Ultimately they said as a courtesy they'd take a beer off. The tab decreased by $30. Since when is a bottle of peroni $30? Very dishonest behavior. Disappointing.

FOr a "local Italian" it was fine but not what we were told it was going to be - when we asked the type of food and were told Sicilian we were happy - then asked for the Sicilian wines and were shown to Lombardy - you get the point
