So sad to say Angela's has closed due to family health issues

Just thought someone should say how sad not to have this icon on MacArthur anymore with Angela herself being the most friendly owner there was. I miss her and the nice place to stop in. I hope things are better with her family.

The best Italian food I've tasted outside of Italy. Angela will make whatever you ask using the freshest ingredients. Her vegetable lasagna is incredible as are her homemade pizzas. She excels in planning party menus and delivering homemade Italian meals that taste like they just came out of your kitchen. Whenever I want to impress my guests but don't have... More

I expected something better, I live in this neighborhood, arguably the nicest in the city, and this doesn't fit in. I stopped in hoping for some advice on Italian cuisine and help selecting ingredients. I really didn't think this would be an issue considering I've never seen a car there. What I received was no help at all, I felt... More

We shop at Angela's occasionally. She has great Italian sausages and other foods -- but a neighbor bought a tray of Petit Fours for us as an anniversary gift, and they are great! They're very fresh, and must be very time consuming to make.

Great on the grill this time of year. But call her a day in advance so she knows how many links you will need. I often grill these and cut them up in small pieces when I need to serve an appetizer. I serve it alongside her marinara sauce for dipping. Really good stuff!

Angela is Scillian and knows how to cook real Italian. She is quite a chef. She also carries Italian grocery goods if you're looking for something special.

You can buy like in a grocery store some Italian staples. You can buy premade dinners to freeze or just heat and eat. You can buy the best cheeses, baguettes, shrimp salad which is my favorite and lots of homemade cookies etc. Angela is like a dear friend once you go in and chat. You can learn a lot about... More

I am usually the cook for extended family dinners but was too busy and did not want to deal with the stress this time. Ordered a pan of Veggie Lasagna. It was homemade and excellent and clean up is almost non-existent. If I didn't enjoy cooking myself, I would become a regular. I definitely recommend this place and will tell... More

Angelas is a small house on Macarthur blvd, that is truly a hidden gem. When you walk in you feel like you are in a small shop in Italy. The first thing you see is a meat fridge that holds proscuitto di parma, salami, soppresata, salami, pepperoni, stuffed peppers, calamata olives, greek olives, fruit salad, bruschetta salad, Parmesan, asiago, gouda,...
