Angelo's of Mulberry Street
Established in 1902, this is Little Italy's oldest existing restaurant. It has captured the hearts of generations with its friendly atmosphere and casual elegance. And after all these years, the Italian food remains well above average. Southern Italian specials add to the extensive menu. They also feature the usual assortment of pasta, veal and chicken dishes. Paintings of Italy adorn the walls, and white cloths cover tables in this softly lit restaurant.
After having made reservations a month in advance, upon our arrival we were notified that the reservation did not exist and to make matters worse, we then were belittled in front of other patrons by the management. I am a NY Italian-American and know a cafuna(classless clown) when I see one. I will make sure I tell all my family and friends about this horrible experience.
My husband and I recently ate at Angelo's. Although we visited the restaurant several years ago, we had not been there for sometime. It was a very disappointing experence. After we waited for about 20 minutes on a Wednesday evening, we were seated in a small alcove area in the back of the restaurant. The tables were so crowded that we could hear the conversations around us. The restaurant was noisy and service was rushed. Our veal dishes were overdone. The meat was tough and the sauce too salty and spicy. We wanted to send the food back to the kitchen but couldn't get our waiter's attention. In the end, we just left without finishing our meal. This restaurant is extremely over-priced for what you get. It is not a good value. I've had much better meals at my local Italian restaurant at less than half of the price at Angelo's.
Great, friendly service staff- at times they rush you just a bit but if you give the word to slow down, they do!
Great Italian food and a reasonable price. My husband and I have never been disappointed here and make it our "favorite" restaurant in Little Italy when we visit from Maryland!
We selected this restaurant for a party of four for an early dinner. We arrived at 4:30 and were promptly seated. But we were surprised that the restaurant was already filling up. Service was very good although the kitchen will not make exceptions or substitutions. The food at some Italian restaurants are so heavy as if bulk makes up for quality. Here the portions are plentiful but the food was light and delicious for all - from fish and veal dishes to risotto specials. Even the calimari was light, crispy and delicious and cooked to perfection. We were not rushed and enjoyed a leisurely meal but by the time we left the place was jammed packed and waiters appeared hairied. People were standing all over the place waiting for tables and hovering over unlucky diners who had tables in the front. By all means we would come again but definately would choose to eat here early or off hours to enjoy and would recommend avoiding from 5:30 - 7:30 pm.
after reading the reviews I realized this would be a hit or miss. We had reservations, but if we were not early, they would give your tables to walk-ins. We were a party of 5. Our meal was rushed. We weren't able to finish our app's before they served our dinner. 4 of our meals were so so, the raviolis were horrible. Next time I will try somewhere else or justmake reservations well in advance to carmines in the city.
it was a pleasure to enjoy the real flavors of italy at your restaurant. had the pleasure of eating there twice and can't wait to come back. plain and simple it's italian.

Many years of taking customer's to NY, Cannot think of a better place to take my guests. The whole family atmosphere is outstanding, the wine's outstanding and the food exceptional!! Worth the wait. And will continue to bring all my guests here as its the place to be.
I am so disappointed in the treatment I recieved when trying to dine at Angelo's. My husband and I arrived at 6:45pm and waited over an hour for a table for two and ultimatly decided to leave. While waiting we notice several people who arrived after us being whisked to tables. There was a party of two whom arrived 20 minutes after us whom we had a conversation with and they said they did not have a reservation. We were promised the next table for two, however when that table became available the party of tow whom we had a conversation with that arrived 20 minutes after us was seated there immediately (it is apparent that money was exchange during a hand shake). How dishonest!!! During our wait we were approached by the host and ensured three times to assure us when the next table for two became available we would be seated. Tables became available but we were never seated. Additionally, it became apparent to other patrons in the restaurant that we were waiting a long time, because people kept making comments and giving us the thumbs up when a table became available, only to look at us with puzzled faces when we were not seated. More amazing is that when we decided to leave you could see the patrons looking and making comments because they were also shocked to see that we waited patiently for so long and finallly reached the pint when waiting became unbearable and humiliating. Please, I urge everyone to take a stand and stop paying for abusive and rude threatment. You have power in where you choose to spend your money and paying for RUDE behavior in unacceptable. Don't GO!! RUFUSE TO PAY FOR RUDNESS!!!!!!!!!!

This place gives Italian restaurants in New York City a bad name. The night my wife and I went to Angelo's the restaurant was not that crowded hoever after almost an hour of waiting, they could not find a table for two. However, they could find tables for several other patrons, most of whom arrived later than we did including a party of 6 who walked in without reservations. The shame of it all was that I've been to Angelo's before because my wife liked the place, the food was not that great and the service arrived when the waiters felt like serving you. STAY AWAY--not worth the hassle.
