“Decent little restaurant in the Soo...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

My partner and I were staying in the Sault Ste. Marie area for a New Year's trip, and we were trying to find a good restaurant for dinner on the Friday night. The front desk clerk at our hotel recommended Ang-Gio's, so we figured we'd give it a try. We had read a lot of the reviews on here beforehand and determined that it was probably old. Some of the reviews are good, but others seem to be unfairly negative.

In general, we were pretty satisfied. It's a small, cozy restaurant with good food. Not incredible, but more than acceptable. The building is definitely older, but there were no problems. We had good service, and the food was fine. My lasagna was fine (not excellent, but fine), and my partner had a fish dinner that he liked. He liked the fried perch but wasn't too enamored by the broiled whitefish. The salad and bread before our dinner were both good. No complaints at all.

You can't expect a 5-star restaurant in Sault Ste. Marie. Yes - the decor is dated and the restaurant probably could do some renovating, but you can't knock it at all. Keep in mind this is not New York City!!!

We had a fine experience there and would not mind eating there again.

“What happened to this place?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

This restaurant used to have pretty good food, always consistent so at least you knew what you were getting. The service used to be great, friendly staff, fast service. Always a waiting line on Friday and Saturday nights...no more. The place is in desperate need of remodeling and redecorating (hire a professional!). The restaurant is dirty from the carpet to the menus themselves. Our last meal there was terrible and when we commented the server took it back and it was returned to us in the same condition; the service was unapologetically slow. We won't be going back anytime soon. Sad to see this happen.

“Good food, good service. The restaurant is in need of renovations.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

The food is pretty good at Ang-Gio's and the staff does a good job. I would say that the restaurant could use a serious make over. The carpet is very worn, the vinyl in the booths are worn out and cracked, the ceiling tiles are saggy and many of them stained. The whole place could use some renovations. The food overall is pretty good but the atmosphere is lacking.

“Cramped, decent Italian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

Don't go with a bunch of people. There are mostly 4 person booths, and its hard to get a bigger table on the weekend. But for okay prices on good Italian food, this is your place. I can't recall a bad meal here, but I can't really say my mind has been blown save for one bowl of cajun crab alfredo with stuffed shrimp (It was a special... I wish it was on the menu).

“Great food....GREATER service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

Some of the best service you'll ever get at a restaurant. They are friendly and courteous here. The food is delicious. I had a seafood linguini last night that was sooooo good. Their pizza is always great! ! I would highly recommend them.
