We celebrated my husband's recent birthday here, which also happened to be our first visit to IL'Angolo. It wasn't our first choice, but it worked out really well, and we had a wonderful experience! We didn't have reservations, but called ahead and inquired about seating availability, and our names were put on a list, along with the time we would likely arrive. It wasn't a guarantee of having a seat, but at least they were anticipating our arrival. As luck would have it, we were seated immediately. The atmosphere was cozy -- not sprawling, but roomy enough for more than a dozen tables. The wooden floors and store front "picture" windows are reminiscent of older well-cared for buildings, that have the charm of yesteryear. With softly glowing candles and white linen on every table, it made for a very inviting atmosphere. Now on to the review of the cuisine ... Wow! We were blown away by how DELICIOUS everything was! We each ordered an entree that was a special offered that evening. I had Grouper with Dungeness crab and lobster sauce. While I envisioned this as a highly rich dish that I would regret ordering, it was the opposite -- I ate almost all of it. It was not drenched in the sauce as I had anticipated. It was applied with a careful hand -- not too much at all, just enough to impart a savory flavor. My husband ordered a Hawaiian Escovar fish dinner, which he thoroughly enjoyed. We were going to explore the dessert menu, but didn't get that far -- our server brought us a COMPLIMENTARY piece of caramel cheesecake, large enough for the two of us to share. We had mentioned at the onset we were there to celebrate my husband's birthday, not expecting to receive anything, so this was an additional pleasant surprise. We had also ordered an appetizer; the olive, goat cheese, and baked bread plate -- it was delicious! We are already planning our next visit to IL'Angolo!
