The owners seem very nice, and the food wasn’t bad, generally speaking.

Unfortunately, one of our plates came with a hair in it. I understand that this is something, an accident, that is bound to happen at least some of the time; however, it certainly is not a positive experience to have occur. This alone wouldn’t have been the total end all be all; however, the response to this was quite lacking. I raised the issue and showed them the long hair in the food, to which I received one brief apology. That was it. They remade the dish for us, and by no means was I looking for a free meal, but I would think it standard to comp at least that plate. Instead, I received the full bill, no adjustments, no further apologies. I get the sense they really didn’t care.

This was our first dining experience with Angolo, dinner before a show at Kennedy Center.
The staff were friendly, and we were well taken care of, and never rushed.
The prepared food, calamari, swordfish and gnocchi were perfectly cooked and delicious.
This may have been our first time, but it won’t be our last.

The service was not as great. We have waited a hour for our order and the taste was okay but nothing stunning.

Good average for a high price

Pizza was VERY good! I wasn’t sure what to expect. Kids just wanted pizza and we had 1 stop to make in Georgetown and parking is crazy so I just wanted to find something close to where the store we were going to was. This place was 1 block away so we tried it. Staff was friendly, and accommodating. My son cried for something and the waitress was so sweet to him. I broke a water glass on accident and they were sweet and quick to clean it up. We sound like a mess… lol but when you dine with kids you never know what’s going to happen. Anyways, our kids really enjoyed their pizza as well.. they kept eating and they aren’t crust eaters but that night they were. So, when I say the pizza is good, I mean it!

We went there for the first time on Thanksgiving just because of its specific holiday menu.
I reserved 3 tables for 7 pm and when we arrived there we had a feeling that they were not exactly prepared for the amount of people that went there. It was a little confuse, crowded and many people in the line.
In consequence the service was very slow but after all that solved we had a delicious meal, I could say that was the best turkey I've tried.
The price was better than fair as the portions were very generous. Attendant Sandra was very pleasant.
For all this I decided I surely will come back because I can imagine how its italian food must be delicious.

We had a reservation for Thanksgiving's dinner. I arrived there with my 2 children and after waiting for more than 10 minutes, the responsible told us that we had to wait (outside) for more than 30 minutes because the restaurant was full and everybody had reservation. We changed restaurant. NO PROFESSIONAL AT ALL. Sure it is NOT Italian style!

The atmosphere is lovely nice music. The service is slow. The food is t authentic Italian food. Salad over dressed, pasta over cooked and food over salted. They asked if we wanted cheese in our Linguine with Vongole. I would dine here again .

The food and atmosphere were great. My only complaint was that we went for Sunday brunch and they did not have a brunch menu, even though that was advertised on their website. We were quite happy with what we had, but if you're not offering a brunch, don't advertise it.

Good food, terrible service. The worst I’ve had in DC. The restaurant wasn’t that full of people, but they had us waiting to take our order for a long time. Didn’t give us any water until we asked for it when our food came. Never gave us any bread like most Italian places do. Also, they brought us plates, utensils and napkins after we asked when the appetizers arrived. Finally, when we were ready to leave, we also had to wait a longer time for them to bring us the bill.

The restaurant completely overbooked themselves. There was a line of people with reservations and the staff was extremely rude about it. We were waiting outside with many others that had reservations for almost 20 minutes while the wait staff ignored us and would not acknowledge/talk to us. When they did walk by the front they were extremely rude and not apologetic at all. The least the could have done would be apologize and tell us to look somewhere else. We eventually had to leave.

The service was awful. We reserved an outdoor table but when we got there we were told we had to eat inside. There were tables outside that were free but we were told they were reserved. Finally they let us eat outside but the waiter was not very nice and barely served us. What a shame because the food was great!

The food was fine, but the service was poor. Although we had a reservation, we had to wait in the same line as everyone else for tables to open up. We also received very little attention from the waiter over the course of the dinner.

This place is a joke- would not honor any open table reservations and made everyone wait in the same line to be seated- whether you had a reservation or not.

Second time here, the service was poor the last time but wanted to give it another shot as the food was good. Waited to be seated (with a reservation) for 10 minutes and no one showed up to the podium aside from staff throwing menus back, most falling on the ground. I imagine this is due to simply being short-staffed and that's understandable, but not a single person spoke to us. Went elsewhere.

I really wanted to like this place. The food and the atmosphere were excellent but the service was an absolute mess the entire night. I felt forgotten by the staff throughout my meal. I waited for close to 15 mins before anyone came over to my table the gentleman that came over just said “you good?” I said, “well I’m hoping to put in my drink and appetizer order in soon” he took my order but apparently wasn’t my server. I got my drink order and a bit later my actual server came over and apologized for being tied up. I get it, it happens, she was nice. Anyway then she disappeared again and the gentlemen from before had to take my entree order after I waited for another long while. I received my food and it was absolutely amazing. Unfortunately, I ran out of my drink part of the way through my food and couldn’t get anyone to come over to my table for close to 20mins to provide a refill. When the gentleman who was not my server came over he said he would come back with the drink but then forgot about it and was serving other customers for a few minutes before he remembered. As soon as he came back I asked for my check because I didn’t want to have trouble flagging him down later I had already been there for a long time and wanted to go home at this point. Low and behold their credit card machine is suddenly down. They ask if I can wait a bit to see if it will start working again. I wait. No one comes over to give me an update for 20mins. Then my server tells me the manager is coming over soon to take my information so they can bill me for my food. I wait. 30mins pass and I’m watching the manager bussing tables and has not even glanced my direction. My server eventually comes over and asks if the manager came over. I said no. The manager finally came over and was not very apologetic and just wrote down my credit card information. The way my table and the CC machine being down were handled was super unprofessional but the food was amazing.

The service was wonderful, especially from our waitress/bartender, Najat. We loved the bruschetta - we could taste how fresh the ingredients were. The burrata ravioli special was fabulous, which made up for the fact that it was a bit over priced. I would definitely patronize Angelo’s again!

Angolo Ristorante was on my list of "want-to-try" restaurants for DC. I'm happy to report it was an enjoyable meal and that the prices were reasonable. It is a good - and affordable - alternative to some of the city's more expensive Italian restaurants.

I’m very disappointed with this restaurant. We had a 10:30 am reservation and arrived to a closed establishment. I tried calling and didn’t receive an answer. There are mixed signals regarding whether or not the restaurant is open and it’s unfortunate that they’re allowing customers to book reservations and then not be open. I will not be returning.

The food was amazing! My husband and I both said that we have never had such delicious pasta. The appetizers of Bruschetta Pomodoro and Gorngonzola Bread were a great start!

I ordered the Burrata Ravioli as my main course. This ravioli is the absolute BEST that I have ever had. That is saying a lot coming from a vegetarian that eats pasta very regularly.!!

My husband, who is far from vegetarian, ordered the Chicken Alfredo and said it was the best pasta that he had ever eaten as well.

Too bad we live so far away in Florida, or we would be regularly visiting this restaurant.

MUST TRY!!! The building is nothing to look at, but the food is to die for.

i am italian and when i'm abroad and i'm looking for an italian restaurant i expect it to be a better level .. you can't do low quality italian cuisine ,, the bolognese sauce must be cooked for hours and you can't serve a sauce already ready, however the place is nice if they improve their quality on the food it would be perfect and I could recommend it to my compatriots
