We have lived in the area for 14 years, always drove past Angelina's and always said we should go there, but for some reason never did! Well, that night in December 2017 we finally did and we cannot wait to go back. From first stepping out of the car to being greeted by the valet, it was a good start. We were placed in the "red room" (we passed romantic looking booths that were hidden by curtains in a different room and next time I hope we sit there). Our waiter was Dan (by the end of the night he told us a nickname to remember him was "Dan-the-Man" lol). He was very personable, professional, efficient, and friendly. We wanted for NOTHING. Our wine glasses were never emptied throughout the night, nor our water. So far, service was A+. At first we were looking at the wine menu, but with their extensive list of wines from throughout the world...we were in over our head. He went to get us the wine professional. She asked our budget, I told her I usually like red blends because they're a mix, and she brought three bottles out that we might like. She described each one, gave her recommendation on which one she thought matched my tastes- and no, it wasn't the most expensive one, so I chose that one. It was exactly how I liked my red wine- not too sweet, but not dry and bitter- it was a red blend from the United States called "Scouts Honor". A+ on the wine. Then onto the food. We had two appetizers: the Arancini: which has Porcini Mushroom, Parmigiano-Reggiano, Mascarpone Cheese, Porcini Mushroom Sauce, and the *Beef Carpaccio, which comes underneath a nice little salad with shaved cheese on top. Both were delicious. A+ on apps. I had the Tomato Caprese salad. The mozzarella on it is "hand-pulled" in the back, and it was the creamiest mozzarella I ever had. I couldn't finish that salad but I sure did finish all of the cheese pieces! A+. Because it is Italian tradition to have the pasta before the entree, We also split the smaller portion of the Butternut Squash Ravioli. YOU HAVE TO TRY THAT. IT IS A MUST. I swear I thought I was eating dessert. It was so delicious. A++++++++ Onto the entrees. I got the *Scallops & Pork Belly. There are three large scallops with two pieces of pork belly, which I never had, served on top of mash potatoes with green beans. All were delicious- potatoes just like homemade, and by this time I could only eat one scallop and half of one pork belly :) A++. Hubby got the special which is not on the menu- it was a Shank of Lamb which came on top of polenta, and which was so tender that he literally took all of the meat off of the bone. He finished his entire dish so I guess that was an A+ too. Onto the desserts. I ordered the tiramisu and he received a small complimentary (for his BD) Dark Chocolate Cake, with Dark Chocolate Ganache & Raspberry Center. Both were delciious, I highly enjoyed the Tiramisu and it was so light, and the chocolate cake was very rich. Then Dan comes out with a choice of two after dinner sippers, complimentary. One was Lemoncello and one was something called Moletti. We've had Lemoncello before, so we ordered the Moletti. Once I sipped it, I knew I was not going to like it. I didn't- lolol. It is so bitter, I honestly hated it and my hubby who drinks everything didn't like it either- but it is something complimentary to help you digest and it was our choice to take it. Then at the end, the valet remember our name, greeted us by name, and had our car back within 2 seconds, so it was still a terrific night from start to finish. My 22 year old son, who is back from the army, was jealous and will be finishing my dinner of scallops, so now we have to go back to take him. Have to wait a little while to save some money because when you go to this kind of restaurant, you do not want to skimp due to prices. It is a little pricey, but not ridiculous so. Right in line with other higher end establishments, and less than some others. I honestly cannot wait to go back!
