“Good food. Average service.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 July 2013 via mobile

We were reccomended this restaurant by our hotel. We were very disappointed by the antipasti based on their quality; but most of the mains were good- particularly the pasta. Waiting staff that weren't particularly smart or fast.

“nice restaurant, great food, friendly staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

Angolo Blu is not in the main streets (very touristic) of the old town of Gallipoli. But it is easy to find - a few signs on the walls in Gallipoli show the way.
We were lucky to get the last table for two. So I recommend to make a reservation - especially in the main season.
Very friendly staff at reception desk and all the waiters are really very friendly. Great recommendations by the waiter for the "day special" which was not on the menu.
Excellent food - we were really excited. Great recommendation for the local wine. Reasonable and fair price. We can really recommend this place.
Nice location. A bit Greek-style.

“Very friendly atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2013

This place is easy to find - there are quite a few signs all over the old town directing you to it. It is also worth finding. We made a reservation only an hour or so before we wanted to eat here and were impressed by the friendly reception we had from the waiter who took the booking.
The restaurant is decorated on a Greek theme with several paintings depicting Greek island scenes. It has a nice, relaxed atmosphere about it. In terms of the food, we went along with the waiter's recommendations. It was very good, sometimes bordering on the over-sophisticated - but this is not meant to be a serious criticism. As to wine, there was a reference to an open, local one on the menu, but we were told that this was not available. Instead there is a list of 'house wines', not unreasonably priced, but for some reason only available in half bottles. Oh well, so we had a couple instead of only one.
We declined dessert, but were informed that this was a big mistake and to prove the point we were presented with a big plate of almond-based sweets - on the house. They were delicious and we polished off the lot.
We departed suffering from sugar rush, but walked it off happily in the narrow streets of the town.

“Benne”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 April 2013

We were walking around Gallipoli and were looking to find someplace to eat but everything was closed. Luckily, we came across Angolo Blu which happened to be open for lunch. We had a great meal with a great staff and had a very enjoyable experience. The food was top notch and the staff, chef, and owners were top notch as well.The pasta and fresh fish were amazing. You wont be disappointed.
