We came after looking through the positive trip advisor comments. This place was not what people described! Every table around us got free drinks because the wait staff was "sorry" for everything they messed up. This was a huge disappointment and the longest wait of my life for food, one hour! Although the resturant itself was cute the atmosphere was... More

This place was great. We had a large group and every was pleased with their meal. Food was slow to come out compared to some restaurants, but it was well worth the wait. Zoë was our waitress and was great. Definitely recommend for anyone not in an rush and can enjoy their meal.

Last night 3 families(16 people in total) had reservations at Angelini's Restaurant in Onalaska... We needed one extra chair to accommodate our large party, only to be told NO! They told us they didn't have any extra chairs and were not allowed to ask any tables around us for a chair. We then asked the owner if they wanted us... More

Had a salad that was just OK, lettuce, tomato, black olives, some sliced meat, seemed to be lacking. Had eggplant parmigiana that was quite good and heard other patrons commenting on how good the pizza is. We did have excellent service first with a young lady then with a more experienced server who was very friendly and attentive. Had a... More

Stopped her after a full day of bike riding. Great food, great service. The owner checked in with us several times as did our waitress.

Went to Angelini's because it was convenient, only a short walk from the B&B where we were staying. Pleasantly surprised because we have found restaurants in small Wis. towns to be very disappointing with so much processed, salty food. Food here was very good. Service was perfunctory and the wait between salad course and entrée was long but they warned... More

This place is HORRIBLE! It really does not deserve even one star. The food is cheaply made. The service is very very slow!! The quantity of food is very poor, especially for the price! I wouldn't recommend this place if it were the last place in the small town of Sparta. We were a party of 6 and everyone was... More

The food was wonderful both times we visited Angelini's. The atmosphere is startling for Sparta, Wisconsin. We chose to sit in a private room and it was very romantic. Service was excellent once and not so good the second time. Not sure but we think they were very short staffed. They are opening one in the Onalaska/Lacrosse area this month!

Sparta, Wisconsin isn't the first place you think of when Italian food is mentioned but we had a really nice meal here with a group of friends. Everyone seemed to enjoy the meal and the service was very good and friendly. I did see the "dark room" that was mentioned in one review and definitely liked where we ate out... More
