Denver >Angelos Pizza
620 E 6th Ave, Denver, CO | Directions 8020339.725516 -104.979292
Outdated, worn-out decor. Iffy service, etc. NOT MUCH TO LIKE.
Not that good at all. Had pasta bolognese. Pasta was over cooked! If half of your menu consists of pasta, you should know how to cook it properly. Sauce was not authentic. Bolognese is a sauce made with milk, white wine, mirepoix, and tomato product such as tomato paste. Usually made with veal and pork which is actually lightly blended into the sauce with an emersion blender. Their bolognese was marinara with cream and a couple small balls of sausage spooned over watery over cooked linguine. Minestrone soup had no flavor whatsoever. Why not do a pasta con fagiolle soup? It's the best Italian soup ever if made properly!
I live about a baseball throw from Angelo's.
So of course I go there a lot but I've never been disappointed at any time. I love their pizza. One of the best.The staff is nice and service is fast.
And to the people who "just moved into the neighborhood" up there: First of all, I hate when you yuppie noobs move into my 'hood looking for the "urban experience" yet you still want your f__ing Macaroni Grills and Applebees. (insert vomit here)
Angelo's is like a lot of the east coast neighborhood joints I grew up with. Old and dated but killer food. I get my to-go pizza's in 15 minutes every time.
If you want a complete makeover restaurant I suggest you go ahead and move back to the burbs or wherever you came from and get some of those Bloomin' Onions.
Comfortable but no wow factor. I've been going to Angelo's for years but not because I love their food but rather because of the relaxed atmosphere. Yes, the service is slow but you don't feel rushed. The food is alright. You can get a calzone that's just as good if not better at and Old Chicago or get a better tasting pizza from Black Jack or Famous. But, if you're more into the vibe of a place this is a good place. It feels like you're in a place with history.
To Be Avoided. Expensive, sticky tables, no happy hour, run-down looking, very s-l-o-w service. This place needs an extreme makeover.
Wonderful neighborhood old-school italian. I've been going to Angelo's for 20 years. It is very good American-Italian food of an old-fashioned variety. They have quality ingredients, delicious red sauce, a nice variety of menu items other than their fine pizza & calzones, wonderful salads. Nice patio, nice table wine, friendly staff, comfortable atmosphere inside.
Children should not be in a restaurant kitchen. We've been to Angelo's a few times since moving into the neighborhood, but after our last experience we won't be going back. The food is ok, not the best Italian but fine for a cheap meal. On 3/21 we were seated next to a family I assume was the owner's that included three women, one man, and two young boys. Throughout our meal I watched as one of the boys ran around, played with his toys on the floor, ran his hands through the man's hair...and then went into the kitchen and put his hands on the counter surfaces. Blech. I usually try to not think about what can (and does) happen in restaurant kitchens, I can't ignore it when I see it for myself.
One of my favorite places to dine..
I eat at Angelo's fairly often. It is one of my favorite local eateries. The food is tasty and always hot. The service is the best in Denver. Yes, I'm even talking better than places like North or Barolo Grill. You will not find a friendlier staff. If you are starving, no problem, you always get your food quickly.
The wine is inexpensive and decent. Ask for the thin crust pizza with meatball, sliced tomato and jalapeno. It's my favorite.
Also, Denver does not allow smoking in restaurants any longer so no worries there.
Good but not great.. The Pizza Trio went to Angelo's and ordered garlic cheese bread, a large italian salad and two pizza's. The bread was so-so ... it was a loaf split in half with a lot of seasonings on top and some cheese (although it didn't taste very garlicky and could have been cheesier.) The salad was enough to share with three people and there were lots of goodies (carrots, cucumbers, pepperoni, cheeses, etc.) on the salad and I believe the dressings were home made and were quite good (we got ranch and vinagarette.) We ordered a pizza with chicken and garlic with red sauce (it would have been better with white sauce) and the other pizza was with sausage and red onions. The crust was very good- crunchy and thin and the chicken on the pizza was breaded which was different and not especially good. They were out of canoli's which a member of the Trio said was "yum" so we got the Tiramisu instead. It was good not great (it seemed like it had been sitting around for awhile- the filling was kind of custardy) and overall the food was pretty much good not great. The atmosphere is really cool (you feel like you are in an old Italian joint) and the service was alright. The location is easy for those of us who live down south and is easy for the downtowners.
YUMMY!!!!. I've been to Angelo's a few times and have not been disapointed. Their chicken parm sandwich is so so so good! Last time I went I had a calzone and it was to die for!! It was so good! Now I find myself craving them!! You should definately try the calzones!! AMAZING!!!
