“An excellent italian dining experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2013

Apart from its warm, clean Italian setting , the food and wine are fantastic. Its an absolute must for the entire family. The staff are friendly and we've never had a bad meal. I highly recommend the gnocchi bolognese, pizza's and baby chicken. Perfect for anniversaries , dinner dates family gatherings.

“I'm not able to review the food as I couldn't get in”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2013

I don't think that this restaurant caters for non-whites. deeply dissapointed that the waiters made it quiet clear that non-whites were not preferred.

“An old favourite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2013

This is one of those restaurants where each patron gets familiar with the one or two dishes they most love and stick to it. It is good old Italian comfort food at its best.
The restaurant is conveniently located with ample parking. The service is friendly and attentive. The food speaks for itself.
My personal favourites have to be the seafood risotto and the porcini mushroom risotto.
Elegantly executed dishes that always delight !

“Excellent food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 August 2013

Outstanding service and excellent food although a little pricey. During peak periods best to book ahead as they do get very full

“A Little Gem in Umhlanga”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

We were in Umhlanga and I was looking for a nice restaurant to go and have dinner. Based on the reviews here I decided to make a reservation at Angelo's. I am so glad we did. It is a lovely restaurant with a lot of character and a good ambiance. The service provided by Jaime was very good and he was attentive without being obtrusive. The mussel soup we had for starters was absolutely superb and a good portion for a starter. My wife opted for the baby peri peri chicken and just loved how spicy it was in comparison to many other places she has eaten peri peri chicken. I had the line fish with pesto which was wonderful with an interesting combination of flavors. I am often wary of ordering fish at non seafood restaurants as i often find the fish overcooked but the fish here was cooked to perfection and absolutely melted in the mouth. Our 9 year old son ordered the spinach and ricotta canneloni which is made with fresh lasagne sheets. As they do not offer half portions i ordered the full portion expecting that we would take home some for the next day. Not a chance he loved it so much he ate the whole portion.

I really recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food and attentive service. The only negative comment I can make is that they do not have a kids menu so portion sizes may be large for kids with smaller appetities.
