We enjoyed the experience we had at Angelena's, from the atmosphere, our server and the food. It was all great. Best service I've had in a long time.

The food was amazing and our server was very educated and gave great suggestions. You get a ton of cheese with the cheese board. The pasta was delicate and thin, with a perfect bite. The music playing was perfect for the atmosphere and the volume was on point. Couldn’t have been a better meal to celebrate with.

Service was impeccable. Our waiter, Lee, was so very helpful and found a way for me to enjoy risotto without the shellfish I am allergic to and spoke with the chef about replacing the scallops with grouper. It was delicious!!

We had the best experience. Service was outstanding and the food was excellent! The quality of the food was on point and our waitress was very knowledgeable on the menu and offered some great recommendations. She was very pleasant and we didn't feel rushed at all! We will definitely be back. She also mentioned about their Tues night special!

We went on a Saturday night. I had reservations so we didn't wait at all. Our server was great! She told us about the specials and came by to check on us frequently. She answered all the questions we had about the food and the wine. Wine selection is great as well. My fiancé enjoyed the pasta and we will be coming back.

The food was outstanding. However, we won’t eat there again.
For medical reasons we eat only low carb. I had called the restaurant and I specifically asked if it would be possible to substitute sides to make this possible and I was told yes - no problem. Unfortunately, it was a big problem. Our waitress said the chef did not allow substitutions. The manager over road this inflexible rule and we managed to have such a delicious meal we asked if we could duplicate it if we came back. We were told no.

Always a delightful night out when going to Angelena's. The food is excellent. The waitstaff are more than efficient and very courteous. My friends and I try to meet up for Super Tuscan Tuesday as often as we can. Our aim is to have a festive time out with great company and great food and the atmosphere and people at Angelina's amplify the good time. We're never disappointed and always leave saying "we should do this more often".

Steve, the manager on duty for Christmas Eve’s dinner service, made us feel so welcome with his warm greeting as we entered Angelena’s. His smile light up the room and set the tone for our evening.
We enjoyed being sat at one of the booths, as it made for a more intimate dining experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed the house made soda, and tried two of the 3 flavors offered (fig, peach). As one in our party is gluten-free, we missed out on the bread for the table; however, individually our party enjoyed the beet salad, Brussels sprouts, and meatballs for appetizers.
For entrées, the Fresh Catch was impeccable and made gluten-free. It was challenging to pair a wine from the menu with the grouper’s delicate smoked flavor, so we kept the wine for pairing with dessert.
The gluten-free chocolate ganache tart came with whipped cream, mint, and raspberries, and was divine. Paired with a fantastic deep red wine, we finished our meal gleefully.
We will absolutely return in the future!

We have been in Pensacola since March 2021 and our first trip to Angelena's was Christmas Eve. We heard it was good however it was better than all the recommendations we got. Our dinner was excellent, the service was excellent and the wine was excellent. Probably the best pasta we every had.

We were seated at the first table to the left of the door. It was very cold every time the door opened. We were reseated as soon as I asked. Also, remember parking is free in the garage across street. They are happy to validate your ticket.

Very underwhelming. My reservations were booked well in advance for the caroling brunch but, due to the fact that I had two ( very well-behaved children 9 and 4 with me) they stuck as at the very front of the restaurant in the bar area away from the main dining room and caroling.

I did make a comment to the host about this treatment, he said it was their policy for children. That they don’t know who’s are well behaved and who’s isn’t. The host did sent the carolers over for a song, but for the 2 hours we were there, thats the only caroling we were really made a part of.
My children are very seasoned diners and this was a complete upset. Not to mention, the food was very bland, except for one dish that was so salty it couldn’t be eaten.
