Vic & Angelo's
Once you set foot in Vic & Angelo's, you'll think you're in Italy, or at least in New York's Little Italy. Dark brown leather booths, marble tables with tall bottles of oil and vinegar, and brick walls all around give this popular restaurant that Old-World charm. The original Vic and Angelo were from Naples, Italy, and now, three generations later, their Italian tradition has carried on. Authentic to the core, their pizza dough is made with water imported from New York City and is baked in huge coal ovens. Thin-sliced, handcrafted meats, artisan cheeses, salads, hand-made pastas, and succulent fish and meat dishes await you. The place is always packed, so reservations are highly recommended.
We have frequented this Delray Beach Restaurant since it first opened usually 4-6 times a month or more. Over time we watched it go from GREAT to HORRIFIC to GOOD and now back to well less than HORRIFIC again. Apparently there is a serious management problem because we have watched 3 of the possible 6 or so managers come, go, come again and go and come and etc...
We may not return again this time because we have learned to "never know what to expect" from this place....besides a HEFTY dinner tab, THAT you can expect for sure! But that is expected in part due to Atlantic Ave.
When we were there a few weeks ago it was utter chaos at the door. And we have seen it 3 times busier in the past to be so disorganized. Through it all the Manager with the Spanish accent was undoubtedly "on something" The hostesses were clueless as to what to do. The short Host/ manager as he told us from Boston was nasty, & rude, but with all the chaos and lack of support from the Spanish man that was too HIGH to help, I couldn't blame him. He was too busy "bumping and grinding" and being openly sexually aggresive with the pretty little young Hostesses....(how young ARE they anyway??)
Where was the tall , bald guy?? HE seemed to be the man in charge keeping order in the past (we watched him come and go and come and apparently go now also)
In the past the food was good. Then it ALL got so salty and full of garlic it was ineatible. This time the specials were good and many favorite pizza items missing from the menu,
Service in days of old was fairly professional for these times and in this area of the country. Several Veteran Waiters and Waitresses were visible in the dining room. But this last visit we were served by basically kids, and not to be rude but seemingly not the "brightest" of kids. These "blonde mentality" kids seemed to fill the dining room and from the conversations overheard from other tables and in the restroom I believe our impressions to be accurate.
BOTTOM LINE?? Service this visit was sloppy and unprofessional. Door and front of house was Sloppy and unprofessional. Management seemed to no longer exist and when you drive past it the lack of business reflects the sad downturn of this once very delightful eatery/drinking establishment.
