Great place for high energy dining. Fun ambiance. Davon is a master bartender, and the pizzas, salads and olives are delicious.

Our meal was fantastic! Beautiful restaurant. The server was attentive and polite. We had the meatball appetizer, grouper piccata, and a wood oven pizza. All was delicious.

We did not want to swallow
the Lobster Ravioli in vodka sauce. We just wanted drown our tastebuds, chewing so ever slowly. The scallops in risotto were perfection. Truly a wonderful experience.
James Briscione and Brooke Parkhurst provided a wonderful experience. We are looking forward to returning.

Going into this visit, we had heard mixed reviews. We couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience. First, our server, Maggie, was an absolute delight. She was engaging and very knowledgeable of the menu; even suggesting items not listed. The food was delicious and exceeded our expectations, while the wine was incredible. It was the most flavorful and smooth Pinot Grigio I’ve ever tasted. To top things off, the tiramisu was wonderful. We will definitely be going back soon.

Great location, wonderful interior and wonderful service. I get it’s fine dining but the food should match it. Food wasn’t bad, I had the cheese board which was lovely but it must have bread. It was just cheese, jam, apples and nuts. The Chianti pork braised ribs were cooks wonderfully but seriously lacked seasoning. I had to put a lot of salt and pepper to make it be as less bland as it could be. The tiramisu was delicious. I’d go back, definitely a good experience and the drinks were lovely, even though it took 15 mins to get them. Thanks

Wood fired pizzas were good. Skip the Kale, Mushroom Pasta. Good service. Don’t park in the garage across the street. Validation didn’t work in machine and cost my sister $35.00 for two hours of parking!

The best meal we have ever had inPensacola. The dishes use local ingredients, are creative combinations and served in a timely manner.
The building itself speaks of old world charm; understated elegance.
The wait staff was friendly, attentive & knowledgeable.

This was our second visit in 6 months. The first time the service was amazing but the food was ill timed and very bland. This time most of the food was delicious (still some blandness with certain dishes) but the timing was still off- wine arrived over half way thru the appetizer course and coffee was offered after dessert was done.

To be fair, both times we visited were during the restaurant group’s “Restaurant Week”...so the place was definitely busy. But perhaps beyond their actual service capacity in terms of dining experience at that price point. Also, while I respect sticking within a price point for a special menu offering...it really needs to be your “A game”. Events like this attract new customers and local foodies...if you want them to return, you’ve gotta be hitting it out of the park.

We dined at Angelena's during Restaurant Week and ordered off the Restaurant Week menu. We were a party of 4, and we enjoyed our food. However, one person ordered the wood fired pizza, and it was a bit too well done on the bottom. Everything else was good. We had a 7 pm reservation and after a rather long wait were seated in the back room. The ambiance in that room was not as nice as the main dining room, so I was a bit disappointed. The room we were seated in looked like it would be used for private parties and was probably opened up because the restaurant was very busy. The room was not very full when we were seated, but it filled up quickly. I would go to Anglena's again but would request to be seated in the main dining room.

I was very impressed with Angelina's The food and service were terrific. We had the salumi appetizer and the meats and relishes were excellent. Our 2nd and 3rd courses were equally well prepared. We went for my birthday and Angelina's comped the bread pudding for my desert. It's probably not fair to comlain about a free desert but it was the weakest part of the meal. I'll say this only in hopes that the word may get back to the kitchen. There was not nearly enough custard in the bread pudding, the bread was dry and chewy and had little flavor. The outside that did get sufficient coating was flavorful. We will definitely be back, though may not order the bread pudding.

An elegant experience all around. My husband is hard of hearing the noise level was low and we could actually have a conversation. I appreciate the fact they did not use plastic straws and to go boxes were recycled paper. Excellent cocktails and home made pasta.

Too expensive for not so special food and wine. Meatballs were good but too expensive, seafood appetizer was good and price was reasonable, wine too costly, just more than I want to spend especially for italian cuisine.

For a causal dining experience, Angelena's is an exceptional restaurant. The service was impeccable. The food was eccletic, fine, fresh and visually appealing. Very pleasantly surprised with my dining experience.
Everything was top notch and an A+ rating except for one thing. What is the work out clipboard that the check ia presented on? Very tacky and not up to par with the rest of the restaurant. Maybe think of a better way to present the check.

Our second visit to Angelena’s. The first experience was amazing from start to finish, but this time all the food was cold. We ordered the meatballs, spaghetti, and ravioli and everything was equally luke warm. We were also seated in an awkward back room that lacked the ambiance of the main dining section. The ravioli had a wonderful taste but the meatballs and spaghetti both lacked the yum factor compared with the ravioli. Don’t think we will be back.

Kenny was outstanding. He was polite, patient and extremely knowledgeable. Too notch. Appetizers can out quickly and were delicious. My Wood Fired Cauliflower was ok. It was a little bland and not really wood fired taste. The Pecan Tart was outstanding. Overall great experience and service. We will be back.

Everyone there made the dinner memorable and fun. Chef's food was on point and we loved everything we tried from start to finish. I look forward to making it back to Angelena's for another enjoyable night out. Thank you.
