The food was ok. The bread tasted old liked it was dry. I got a side salad with garlic vinaigrette dressing which had too much dressing. I ordered the house special spaghetti and meatballs...it arrived in 10 minutes while I was eating my salad. Timing is everything. I felt like my server was trying to rush me out the door. I didn't feel like I enjoyed my dinner.

The fried calamari was the toughest, most rubbery calamari I’ve ever eaten. The chicken parmigiana was unobjectionable but the pasta was way over cooked, like mush.

I’d recommend them everything except for the mozzarella sticks. They were over cooked to the point that hardly any cheese was actually left in them.

The food was good but not plentiful. Two of the four people wished there had been more (cheese ravioli, Jambalaya). Service was okay and it was a little loud, but not bad.

We have been dining at DeAngelo's since they opened, a couple of decades ago. Excellent neighborhood trattoria with good food and outstanding service. Wish the pasta offerings were more diverse, not in a cajun direction but more traditional.

Went on a Sunday night and it was a very slow night. Meagan was our server. She was great. Very quick and attentive service. She recommended the spicy meatballs as a started and they were fantastic. Entrees were just as good. Very nice atmosphere. Overall a very nice dining experience and I am sure we will go back.

Service was slow and I told waitress up front I was going to drink lots of water. My glass was empty for 5 -8 minutes and I had to wave her down to get a refill.

Food was good but nothing extraordinary. Atmosphere was okay. It was quite enough for good conversation.

Had to finally ask what was taking food so long as other tables had food first .

When food finally arrived it appeared cooks intentionally put excessive chunks of tomato in sauce and made sauce very watery.

Our Mother's Day dinner reservation was at 5:00 and the restaurant was half empty when we arrived, so I was incredibly surprised and disappointed when we walked into the dining room to see how filthy the room was. Every bit of carpet was covered in food or bits of trash. Our chairs, table, and menus were greasy or sticky as well. There is no excuse to start the dinner shift without cleaning the carpet.

When we left, 4 staff were hanging out in the waiting area just chatting. Instead of lounging, staff should be cleaning -- running a carpet sweeper over the floor and cleaning the crud off of menus and chairs.

I was skeptical of a restaurant in a shopping mall and my skepticism was well founded. Things started off badly when they were out of their one premium bottle of wine (during IU graduation weekend....really?). So I ordered the $40 bottle vs the $70 bottle. During our dinner, a guy just started vacuuming next to our table (you can’t make this stuff up). It wasn’t a cleanup, he vacuumed for several minutes. On the good front, the egg plant parmesan was quiet good. Please work out your service issues.

There is nothing especially remarkable about DeAngelo's decor; it is a typical mall-style restaurant wedged between two large retail stores. But it is a comfortable place, with a friendly and efficient staff. Since I prefer places that are quiet enough that one can converse without shouting, I was very comfortable with the noise level and the lack of wallpaper music. But to the real point: the food was very good. On my first visit I had a full order of calamari appetizer ($10) and the meat lasagna entree ($17), served with bread and oil. I enjoyed both so thoroughly that I returned a few days later and had exactly the same meal. The second experience was just as good as the first. As a bonus, on Thursdays $10 buys you a 1.5 liter bottle of wine (I chose a California Merlot, and it was quite decent). I don't know if this is a temporary promotion, but it is worth taking advantage of while it lasts.

Came in and waited for 10 until after 10mins. A manager finally acknowledged us even those he saw us when we walked in. Totally was ignored. We asked a couple in front of us. They said the same thing. The server was terrible. She was unhappy. We asked for a large pizza and calamari and never saw calamari and she came back with a medium size pizza. Food was good. Just bad and bad management. If u r an owner, do something...

It's really a shame that there is no "adult supervision" at this restaurant, because the food is actually very good. Yes, it's location near Indiana University in Bloomington makes it entirely logical that college students would represent a large part of the service staff. However, the college student staff at DeAngelo's are not properly supervised by more seasoned staff member that would impart a more serious attitude about service quality.

Along these lines, we found the atmosphere at DeAngelo's to be more about the college student employees having a good time, rather than them focusing on the quality of service that is provided to customers. Thus, while the employees always seem to be having a good time, a member of our party was served the wrong meal, and we had to keep asking our server many times for something as basic as water refills and additional napkins. Disappointing for sure.

Again, this is really a shame, because the food is often times excellent.
