The raviolo was bland and the pasta undercooked and overcooked at the same time. Honestly it should be taken off the menu because it’s a horrible representation of Italian food.

Our first time there and won’t be our last! I had the ribeye that was simply amazing and my wife had pesto shrimp and pasta which she said was very good. But everything from the brussel sprout appetizer to the cheesecake was wonderful.

Service was very good and very courteous. Like every other place, they are short handed but they are doing it right.

Really strange experience for a very nice business meal. One person in our party couldn’t make it to dinner and we decided to order a salad to go with grilled shrimp. Angelena’s staff refused to prepare this dish. There were no more than 5 tables sat in the entire restaurant near closing time, but the manager, Chris, would not simply add grilled shrimp to a salad. Spent more than $600 on the meal and am shocked at the poor service. I will not visit Angelena’s again for business dinners. My employees were shocked at the service.

The ambiance was wonderful, the Brussels appetizer was amazing (a large portion which you can order 1/2 of, but the bartender didn’t tell us until we got our check). Bartender was slow. Recommended the scallop risotto witch wasn’t very good, honestly. The cocktails were yummy! It’s a beautiful restaurant but nothing that “wowed” us.

Enjoyed our meals and experience. I had plenty of choices on the menu that I would love to try but my wife not so much. Never Been to an Italian restaurant that didn't have a good spaghetti on the menu. Didnt want to try pizza for the fist trip there. There is a take out spaghetti why not one one the menu? Some people like to try the basics the first time.

Extremely fresh food and lively atmosphere. Took my mom for her Birthday and she loved it. Food that was order was worth every penny, not an everyday restaurant for me but will be one for the books and that I use for special occasions.

Scallops and risotto were amazing! Succulent, tender scallops and a to-die for pesto risotto! First time dining in, in over a year. Chicken parmigiana was delicious and tender and juicy. We also had three different types of pizzas. Everyone was extremely happy with our meals. Even the two year old!

First time visit. Was a little leery about going for Easter Brunch, since Angelena's is mostly a dinner place, but it was delightful! The service was wonderful, and the food was very good. I had the lamb roast, which was excellent! My husband had the scallops, and the only thing that could be improved is the amount. He said he felt like there could have been more, considering the price. We had the olive appetizer, and I thoroughly enjoyed them!
I did ask for the wine recommendation, and took it. Turned out the wine was $20 a glass. I think the price should be mentioned when a recommendation is given. The wine was good, but to me, not $20 good. ($40 altogether!)
It is kind of a noisy place, but we were mostly removed from other tables, so it wasn't too bad.
Now that I know about Angelena's, we will be back!

My family and I visited Angelena’s for the first time on Easter Sunday for brunch. The entire experience was outstanding. The service was incredible, the food was drool worthy (you must try the deviled eggs!), and the price was on point. We are lucky to have such a lovely restaurant here in Pensacola with such a well renowned chef. We will be back!

Beautiful inside, smelled good when you walked in, hostess very pleasant. We had a nice table. Our day wasn't going as planned, and we were as not put together as we had hoped, but our server was understanding, and helpful . The steak tartare was the best I had had in 20 years, and my crawfish tortellini was excellent. Can't wait to return.
