My first experience with Angelena's was pizza picked up by a friend. Great! My onsite experience was great, as well. Staff was "on it" (as we were coming out of the pandemic so that says A LOT)! Food was excellent.

1st time in and won't be the last.. food, wine and service were all A+. Chef stopped by to thank us for coming in to celebrate wife's birthday. One of the top restaurants in Pensacola!

We rented the garden room for a wedding rehearsal dinner with family and friends. The Garden Room was a perfect size for dining and socializing. The food and service was amazing. It is unfortunate that we live out of town because we would definitely make...that a regular stop for diner out and more good memories.More

This place had been on our list to try for awhile, and it was a bit of a let-down. The cocktails and bread were delicious. The fruitti de mare was under-seasoned and the mayo (prob was an aioli, but tasted pretty much like plain mayo)...left a lot to be desired. We also had the short rib ravioli and the short rib meat was dry and ricotta could have used seasoning. The truffle sauce that the ravioli sat in was cold. The Gulf Seafood Bucatini was nothing spectacular for $30, but solid. We drive and hour to get to Pensacola, so will probably go back to George’s before we come here again. Great waitstaff thoughMore

Party of six sporting various palates that enjoyed everything from traditional pastas, to seafood, to steaks. Everything was fabulous. We even shared their Limoncello Cheesecake and a cannoli. Amazing. Great wine selection served by Lee made the evening most memorable. Bravo to the owners, the...chef, and the entire staff.More

This is one of our “go to” spot for date night or an evening with friends. I tend to want everything perfected when dining. This place succeeds. Romantic candle lit atmosphere with the correct lighting - great music and attentive staff. Cocktails and wine are...closely overseen by the beautiful and gracious sommelier Brooke. The food is elegantly presented by the Nationally known creative expert Chef James Briscione . Bravo on your recent victory going up against Bobbly Flay on Food Network . Whether you are looking for a good old home cooked Lasagna or Chicken Parmesan - or a venturous evening of newly creative Italian cuisine , this is the “Hot Spot” to make your appearance in downtown Pensacola. Hope you enjoy this place as much as we do.More

We have been to Angelena's;'s many times and always find it to be excellent. Very convenient before a concert downtown. We shared the Frutti Di Mare appetizer which came with fried lemon slices. Very unusual and good. My wife had the Grouper special and I...had the Seared Scallop Risotto. Both were excellent. The wine and service was top notch. Highly recommended.More

Convenient to the Saenger Theater. Having had dinner already, I joined friends who ate dinner and I had a cocktail. The place was busy. We were there for one hour max and have no complaints about the service.

Four friends for dinner: Menu substitute was home made bucatini with mussels so I thought I’d try it because I love mussels. This was absolutely wonderful & I rarely say that about any pasta I eat in any restaurant! Perfectly cooked! Perfectly sauced! Delicious! On...the other hand my husband had the chicken parm which left a lot to be desired! Unflavorful & the breading fell off with every cut! Also needed a little something else on the plate. One large breaded chicken cutlet topped with cheese & just a dab of sauce. That’s it! Odd plating. Pizza looked fantastic as did the short ribs with polenta, but review of the polenta was “very salty”! Included 3 photos but didn’t take a photo of the chicken parm which I should have because that needs the most work for improvement! Great service ! Beautiful restaurant!More

This was our second time coming in for Tuscan Tuesday. A free bottle of Italian wine comes with any dinner order. Order two dinners and receive two bottles of wine! I had their special pizza and it was magnificent. The restaurant was full even though...it was winter so its best to make reservations in advance if you want a table. Otherwise there is seating in the casual/bar section. All of my parties food was cooked well. Very good experience,More

Chef is talented but there are consistent staff problem. Bartenders are particularly inept and typically only around for 3-4 months. Eating at the bar is amazingly frustrating. Will probably not be back after dozens of visits, I have finally given up.More

I tend to be a detail freak that believes a restaurant needs to have it all to be excellent. Service, atmosphere, cocktails, lighting and food. Angelena's Ristorante does not disappoint. Service is impeccable. The decor , lighting and candles on the table create the perfect...Romantic setting for a cozy dinner. The cocktails and wine never disappoint. And Chef James in know and respected across the country for a reason. Whether you are looking for creative Italian dishes you have never tired before or the traditional supper items - he and his team never disappoints. It took some time from the early opening days to perfect this restaurant - Congrats you have everything perfected !More

What an exceptional meal! From the appetizers, to the bread, to the meatballs, pizza and limoncello cheesecake what else could you ask for. Everything was beyond delicious and the chef even came out and signed his cookbook. The waitress also went out of her way...to make sure we enjoyed our meal.More
