We pride ourselves on our attentive service, our globally inspired locally sourced cuisine, and our unique open-air dining room that inspires us every day.

We stayed at playa flamingo beach resort just across the street so decided to give it a try. Nicely decorated open restaurant upstairs in a plaza of shops. Nice live music playing. We were seated at a table for 6 altho there were only 3 of us and right near the music. One chair was a couch so it was... More

I really wanted to like this restaurant because we just moved to the area and it seems to the be the only upscale option in Flamingo, the restaurant itself looks nice and the service was very good despite the place being packed, but every dish was loaded in oil, even the salads. I left feeling very heavy and my wife... More

We have eaten at Angelina's four times (over two trips to the area) and each meal has been very good. My favorite is the squid ink pasta dish with seafood. I also like their pizzas and fresh fish very much. The two brothers who run Angelina's are very nice and run a professional operation. The restaurant will come pick you... More

Don't know why this isn't number one. Had dinner twice. Great meals and drinks. The pastas were homemade and the sauces excellent.

Also, a family birthday - with amazingly rich chocolate cake and ice cream, singing waiters, etc. Food was great. Some music to dance to (although it was drifting from next door Maria's, where a blues band had set up). Anyway, we had a great time, in spite of an approximately 1 hour power outage just after dinner had been served... More

The ambience, food and service were all great, which normally makes for a five-star rating. However, we were seated outside the bathroom, and the smell coming through was not so great. I would recommend this restaurant, but ask for a table away from the bathroom -- the smell will be better and you have a better view.

Angelina's was very good. Our first meal was for Christmas Eve so it was a bit more pricey and a special meal for that night. My daughter and I had prime rib that was very good and my son and husband also enjoyed their meals. The flourless chocolate cake and ice cream was sooooooo good..we ordered it again the 2nd... More

During our week stay at the wonderful Flamingo Beach Resort, we dined at Angelina's -- just around the corner -- twice. The food was outstanding both times, from a flavour-packed caprese tropical salad and pulpo chorizo appetizer to start, on to fresh fish and a savory rabbit ragu pappardelle pasta for the mains. But there's more, much more! There are... More

Excellent fine dining experience. Service was attentive and lovely. We had the pulpo and tuna tartar appetizers - amazing!! For dinner we had the catch of the day. Gluten free options, too, which was perfect for two foodie snobs visiting from Boulder, CO! Highly recommended!

We were delighted with the variety on the menu. Everyone had a differrent dish..the chicken with pasta, seafood pizza, squid ink pasta with seafood and another amazing pizza. The food was cooked to perfection..and we plan to go back before our trip is over. Highly recommended!
