“Great Experience”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

An establishment with character and style. The food is plentiful and flavorful. We always walk out with extra food because we can never finish it. An old style bar with an abundance of history which shows on the walls with pictures of the many who have been there. The bartenders are always attentive to you when you walk in and let you know when your table is available and the servers provide nothing but what you want, a great time....

“Classic Atlantic City Italian”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

This is a classic Atlantic City Italian eating establishment that's been around for ages. Service was really good, and the food was perhaps a step or two above diner-level quality. Pro tip: the house red wine is tasty.

“An AC Classic”
Reviewed December 19, 2013 via mobile

Great authentic Italian American food, with huge portions and excellent service. Within walking distance of most casinos, and has plenty of free parking. No reservations.

“Lunch with Old School quality and service”
Reviewed December 14, 2013

Lunch was incredible. The sign is posted to Wait To Be Seated and they mean just that! When they clear a table, they will come down to seat you. When she kindly seated us, you could see the years of experience come front and forward. It was a throw back to what lunch service us to be. Just relax and take in the experience. The lunch menu was filled with many choices. I finally selected the stuffed shrimp and antipasto salad. This salad has it al, beets, boiled egg, peppers, shrimp, etc, etc. Take in the decor and you can see why the walls are filled with pictures of Sinatra. This is a top pick for me. What a great surprise.

“Convenience to Hotel was about the best part”
Reviewed December 12, 2013

Wanted something more than a sandwich from The Tun Tavern at the Sheraton so decided on Angelo's. We were lucky to get in because there was a major even at the convention center and they only take reservations for large parties. We were escorted to a table for two in a room at the very back of the restaurant, which was fine. The only problem was that besides our table and one other two-top, there were tables set for two very large groups. The waitress was very pleasant and took our drink order. Shortly after that, the larger of the two large groups arrived. Once our drinks came, the waitress left us to deal with the large party. We were ready to order but had to wait while she served them drinks, then took appetizer orders, then delivered appetizers and was just about to take their dinner order when I was able to get her attention and requested since we had been seated for some time, could she please take our order before the large group. I was sure that if their order went to the kitchen before ours, we would be there all night. Well, the waitress was very accommodating and did take our order. We were provided with cold bread... nothing special there, and a house salad, mostly iceberg lettuce with a very grainy Italian house dressing... certainly nothing special about that. I ordered the lobster ravioli, a house specialty. It sounded yummy and I was looking forward to it. When it came, complete with a whole lobster tail, it was barely room temperature. Even so, it was tasty, but the lobster tail was so tough, I couldn't cut it and ended up leaving it on the plate. A tough lobster tail is a clear indication that it had been overcooked. Such a shame as it could have been an outstanding meal. Don't think I will venture back.
