so a friend and i decided to go to angelina cafe for sunday brunch since it appeared to be a popular restaurant. what a mistake. my friend's omelette was completely overcooked and crispy and my meal was just alright. the service was poor. When we realized the waitor wasn't bringing our check, we both stared at him for 15-20 minutes hoping to get his attention to wave him over to give it to us. the chef even noticed that we were waiting and literally pointed to our table and told him that we were waiting, and yet it still took him 10 minutes to get to us. the place was not crowded at all so it did not warrant such a long wait.

My husband and I go to Angelina often, usually once a week. It is my favorite place in our neighborhood. The food is good, fresh, and served in a timely manner. The prices are also great considering the deliciousness of the food and the amount of food you get. I haven't found anywhere else around here where you get the same great value. My personal faves are the arugula salad, the pasta with marinara & mozzarella, and the 3 eggs with a bagel (which is 3 eggs cooked any way, 3 choices of veggies, meat, or cheese as sides, a small salad, and a bagel- all for only $5.50! Try to find such a great brunch for cheaper!) You should go here.

It was a long day for me. I had just gotten outta work with a good friend of mine. We were both starving, and in the mood for some italian-esque food. My friend suggested Angelina's Cafe. I've never eaten here before, so I was intrigued as to how the food would taste. Upon entering, and being seated I studied the fine art work through out the cafe. The environment is great. It's a low-lit atmosphere, which is something I'm quite fond of because it sets a nice mood to enjoy a wonderful meal. When it came to selection, we ordered the crepe with canadian bacon, onion, and mozzarella. Let me just tell you that it was simply divine. Never would I have imagined such a combination of food to be so delicious. I ordered penne alla vodka with chicken. One word can describe its taste... PERFECTION! Seriously, it was such a marvelous place of food. There was a plethora of penne to feast upon, and so much chicken that I could've shared it with hungry orphans across the country. I think it was another reviewer, James, who claimed that they were frugal with the food? Let me just tell you that he doesn't know what inthe world he's talking about. Him, and his "soggy croutons". He is outta his mind. This place truly has the best penne alla vodka I've ever eaten in my life! And it was cheap, as in price, of course. Angelina's Cafe is a great choice when it comes to eating divine foods for a moderately cheap price. The service was great. My friend, and I left with such satisfaction that our fat, full bellies displayed just how much we loved the food there. I definitely recommend this restaurant as a great place to eat.

We love Angelina and either go to the restuarant or order take out atleast once a week. The food is always fabulous. The salads are so fresh and full of flavors, (try the baby argula!). The Teryaki shrimp appetizer has large juicy shrimp and the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. As for entrees, I love the specials of the day! The fish or pasta of the day is always wonderful. I am a huge fan of the penne with fresh mozzerella, tomato and basil. Simply perfect! The wine list is inexpensive yet delicious and always order desert! This is one of the best values around.

We read enough of the unanimous positive reviews here to expect a place with good food, service, value and atmosphere. The FOOD was mediocre at best. I had a caesar salad, which included soggy croutons, a large bed of so so limp lettuce, and odd, mildly fishy, but passable caesar dressing. My girlfriend had a smoked turkey sandwich. She liked it for the most part, although they forgot to bring the mayonnaise that she initially asked for. The SERVICE was fine, although not great. One of the two servers presented herself in a way that suggested she’d rather be anywhere else. She made no mention of the specials. She couldn’t be bothered to even look at us. But all in all they were around pretty frequently and were nice. It was that sort of nice where they seemed to some extent aware of the shortcomings of the place and were doing their best to make it as painless as possible. On VALUE, the prices are reasonable, but seem insignificant given what you get. ATMOSPHERE, I didn’t notice too much. It’s nice to sit by a window and take note of the goings on outside. The inside has that sort of eclectic art on the wall here, a sign there, a mirror over there sort of thing. A sign with marked on specials. A kitchen in one corner. I won’t be back. Better to patronize some other East Village restaurant in the hopes that the future will bring more of those and less of these.

I've been a huge fan of Angelina's but lately a lot has been going downhill. I recently ordered the steak and it was all fat and gristle. The piece of tuna on the salad nicoise was very small - it's usually huge - and they have been forgetting to include things that I request when I order for delivery. Having said that, their food IS great, the portobello sandwich is to die for and their burgers are divine. Another beef is that they have recently stopped taking credit cards for delivery which is really inconvenient. I would like to order from them but can't so I just call Il Bagatto instead. Angelina's, step it up a bit and consider taking CC's on delivery, you would make a lot of money off of me!

My friends and i teach at a school nearby and every friday for the past 2 years have been eating at angelinas for lunch. Between the 5 of us, we've tried pretty much everything on the menu and have never been disappointed. The crepes are great and the salads are delicious too (especially the skirt steak salad). Definitely give it a try!
