Angelo's is a local Italian Restaurant downtown on Clayton street. It features a more traditional menu than Depalma's, however the food is not quite as good. Most of the food is good, but I would stay away from the spinach lasagna. The calzones and some of the meat dishes are much better. However all the food is made in advance and reheated upon order, which is the main problem with the food. I seem to remember that they had good pizza, but its been a long time since I've had any.

What really makes this place is the atmosphere. The walls are decorated with photos of Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, and actors from famous mafia movies like Al Pesci (Goodfellas). They also play classic American- Italian songs like Frank Sinatra's Luck Be A Lady and Dean Martin's That's Amore.

Although the food leaves a little something to be desired, its still good and worth a try. I would recommend the calzones or the stromboli and save the lasagna for your Italian grandmother (what? you don't have an Italian grandmother? well neither do I, so learn to cook it yourself).
