Angelo's on 55th St

Angelo came to this country in the late 1930’s, settling in New York. He has worked a lifetime making great pizza, first at pizza shops around the city and then at his own store, Pizza Chef, on Brooklyn’s Fulton Street. As time passed, Angelo lamented that there were only a handful of places left like his that made what he calls real pizza. “The crust has to be blackened and crisp! Only fresh mozzarella and tomatoes…!” he often pleases. This genuine passion for pizza has passed on to the family’s next generations, as his children and nephews continue his tradition of excellent pizza making. And now as his nephew John starts his own pizza restaurant, he pays homage to his uncle Angelo, who served as an inspiration to them all.

    Great lunch before our show! The pizza was crispy & delicious. The family style salad was a little too much for 3 people but tasty as ever. Great service & nice tables for people watching!

    Consistently good, basically simple food. Nothing fussy or pretentious. It has gotten much more popular in the last year. Best to make a reservation. Nice outside area in warm weather.

    Our go-to place for a casual dinner. Good for large groups, It can be noisy at times but the service is consistent and has a feel of a neighborhood restaurant, although much bigger.

    Pepperoni pizza was great. Servers were nice. Outdoor seating was nice. Enjoyed the wine and antipasta. Didn't love the ravioli. See you again.

    This is a neighborhood gem and our regular Friday night dinner spot. The food is consistently good and the wait staff remember you and greet you with a smile. It is family friendly and has a large outdoor seating area (I don't eat outdoors). Thanks!

    Angelo's is a step above the usual pizza parlor. The prevalence of wine and beer, and the varied menu which includes salads, pasta and a variety of pizzas ensures that there is something for everyone. I would heartily recommend this reasonably priced comfortable East Sider. Prices are high in midtown, so Angelo is a great alternative in every way.

    We had a large party (17) and it was PERFECT for us. Food came quickly (which was important - we had 4 children 5 and under) and was delicious. Our server (Kaza?) was amazing - charming, efficient, accommodating and always there when we needed him. A+ to all!

    I always ordered grilled salmon at this restaurant, but since last summer, I found the salmon dish was not grilled as I wished a few times, blackened outside but sashimi inside... I stopped ordering it. The other day I gave it a try and asked the waitress exactly how I wanted. Then the salmon came out in medium rare perfectly. The waitress was very attentive as well. I will return as frequently as before. Also, their pizza is very good!

    their price is reasonable for the location, and quality is very good for the price, compared to its peer. I asked for alternative in the menu. They accommodated my request perfectly.

    After eating at the other angelos last year the same weekend, we decided to try this one. This one had no wait and we were seated right away at a table marked reserved. So much more room that one on 57th. Will return.

    The food and service are always excellent at this restaurant. The staff is very friendly and you never have to worry about tracking down your waiter or waitress. The food is very taste and the portions are fairly big. This is an excellent neighborhood restaurant.

    While the food was good (not outstanding), the service was awful and me and my friends will not go back. The waitress had a definite attitude. There were only about 3 other tables in the entire restaurant while we were there. My salad came missing the dressing and when I asked her for it she basically rolled her eyes at me. One of my friends pasta dishes came and the rest of us were waiting for pizza that came about 10 minutes later. Her pasta was nice and cold by the time our pizza arrived. If the service was good, I would go back but that was not the case so I will not return. Too many other choices in NYC with good food AND good service.
