Ordered a large margherita pizza ($16). The crust was sooty and had both crunch and chewiness. Could have put a few more basil leaves on it. No sliced tomatoes on the margherita. Decent service.

After walking around Rockefeller Center and shopping in the surrounding area for three hours getting exhausted, I wanted to have a relaxing lunch at an outdoor cafe on Saturday. I haven't been in that section of NY for along time, but I remembered the Harley Davidson Cafe and the Heartland Brewery had outdoor tables. I looked for Harley Davidson on 6th Ave, but couldn't find it. Thinking I was looking on the wrong street, I asked a policeman standing on the corner for directions, he radioed someone on his walkie-talkie for me, only to find out it does not exist any longer! I went to Heartland and there was not a single person eating lunch at the outdoor tables even though it was 12:00 p.m. and the street was somewhat desolate so I didn't eat there. I was very disappointed in the lack of restaurant choices with outdoor seating, so I headed east to 2nd Avenue to get my car and leave the city, but I decided to walk down 2nd Avenue on the chance I could find something. I spotted several people eating outside at Angelo's, and I was so happy to get off my feet and sit down, I really didn't care how the food or service was. Boy, was I pleasantly surprised. they had several lunch specials from pannino's to eggplant parmigiana and pasta,, the most expensive was $12.99. I decided on the chicken cutlet pannino with a side salad for $8.99, it was delicious and everything tasted so fresh! I also ordered a glass of Shiraz for $6.99, I saw the cheaper beer on the menu, but wasn't in the mood for it. The service was impeccable, the waiter was constantly present if you needed anything, but not annoying. and seemed to really care of you liked the meal or not. After reading all these reviews, I'm sorry I didn't try the pizza. Toward the end of the meal, I thought I spotted Larry King walking by the restaurant, maybe it was the Shiraz, but the guy looked just like him.

I had an Arugula salad today ... not! They said it was Baby Arugula...not! It's leaves were pointy, tasted stringy... it was dandelion, ick! I had a favorite ribbon pasta with mushrooms....not! it was thick, tasteless curly edged pasta, hardly any mushrooms. I'm sure other dishes have suffered too. Very disappointing... won't be back for a long time.

I was born and raised in Brooklyn and have eaten pizza from them all. I was working nearby Angelo's and just decided to give it a try and was very surprised how delicious the pizza was. I ordered to go so service was not much of a factor but that was close to the finest pizza I have ever had.

Delicious pizza and appetizer. I was a bit surprised that both the appetizer and pizza were served at the same time. Unfortunately the waitress was not very attentive.

The salads are still the best in the city, and the pizza's first-rate - so thin they can fax it to you. The room is pleasant. But in the last few months they've hiked prices, shrunk portions and no longer seem to care about making customers come back. Every extra is charged. Worst of all, there's been loud pounding music (maybe the workers need it) every time we come in. Last visit and the last time we once again asked them gently if they could please turn it down, off, or find something less nerve-jangling for dining and conversation, the waiter insulted our guest - and it was her birthday. Sad, because she loved their meatballs. We seen a lot of restaurants close because they don;t understand that on the Upper East Side, customers don't need a hard time. Too bad!

Pizza is good as are the salads; pasta was better when it first opened, now all the sauces taste the same - just a tasteless flour roux. Very expensive in that they get you every which way - EVERYTHING is extra $$ - including extra sauce on pasta (?) and even extra olives! There are better places in the city to get a plate of pasta.
