When I think of a coal oven pie I want a good tasty thin crust. This was practically deep dish, just baked in a coal oven. The sauce was really tasty, and I liked the texture of the mozz and the flavor of the basil, but it's not traditional Italian brick/coal oven. It's more like a gourmet version of a Domino's pizza -- good if you're in the mood for thick squishy crust, but not if you're looking for classic thin crust coal oven.

Everything was perfect the night we went to Angelo's. The food, service, atmosphere, one of my best experiences in a pizzeria.The pizza was very good This is the kind of place you come in w/ some friends (or alone) and end up staying for hours w/o realizing.We look forward to coming back to this restaurant in the future.
Give this place a try, you will be glad you did!

First of all I did enjoy this pizza the few times that I have been here, but I am NEVER going back. Last night I arrived as a party of three. The hostess offered us a table, but we asked if we could sit at a the table across. She let us know in her VERY BAD ENGLISH by letting us know that it was a table for five by saying 'five' ... 'five people'. So we sat where we were shown. After we had started ordering and our plates came, there was a large group who came in who had some children and strollers. The hostess was gone so the manager had to direct them upstairs. The hostess then returned, and when one of the fathers or men in the group asked about his folded up stroller she stuck up her nose and shrugged her shoulders (literally) when he was clearly pointing out that it was an extreme inconvience to bring the stroller upstairs. I was soo irritated!!
Ever time I eat here, the wait staff is very sad looking and shows no energy or even a smile while on the job. You can always find them upstairs near the bathrrom/bar area sitting around also. (and by the way, the bathrooms were DISGUSTING!!! last night). So while enjoying my dinner the music that was on which was a little loud, and was playing RAP MUSIC... which totally turned me off to the food and made me focus on the rather horrible ambience this place has to offer now. What manager/owner would let rap music play in a little more than casual pizza restaurant???? So when I left, the hostess magically dissapeared and I asked one of the waiters what the hostess' name was. He would not give me to me and told me I had to talk to the manager. I didn't really want to wait around to talk to the manager, so I left. So please if you want to eat here, I suggest you order over the phone or not at all. You wont have to deal with a snotty hostess and sad-looking wait staff. Oh, and to top everything off, there was a mosquito flying around me, when no windows were open... nice....

Pizza is only good if it gets to you and Angelos has just lost me forever! 45 minutes after ordering for delivery, I called to chase the order because it hadn't arrived. The girl told me they hadn't put it into the kitchen yet, and frankly, she could not have cared less. Business must be pretty good not to care about service.
So I canceled the order and tried Serafina at 55th and Broadway.
Oh my God, I'm never going back to Angelos. I found pizza heaven. I thought Angelos was good until I had the pizza at Serafina. And since they are new, they are much nicer to the customer.

You can taste the freshness of the ingredients used to make the pizzas in this Midtown restaurant. Although the location is convenient to some hotels it is somewhat out of the way for other things you may be doing, and the ambiance is nothing to write home about. I must stress however that the pizza sauce is better than Lombardi's, and arguably the crust might be too. Taste them both and decide for yourself.

My husband and I just went to Angelo's Pizza last night! It was phenomenal! I dare say it was just as good or even better than Patsy's or John's! The service was great. We were in and out in a half an hour. The restaurant was clean and welcoming. We would come back without a doubt! I'm actually craving the pizza as I'm typing this review:)

Honestly I did not have their pizza so I can't comment on that. We ordered family style and the portions were large and the quality generally good. Excellent - Fried Zucchini & Eggplant with Garlic Yogurt Dipping, Penne Alla Vodka (perfect - al dente and good sauce), Linguine Del Pescatore. Not as good - Spaghetti Di Grano Duro Con I Vegetali (whole wheat pasta was a bit grainy). The salads were all good.

As a New Yorker, we're trained to like pizza; all sorts of different pizza. IThis pizza is more the traditional European style with a very thin crispy crust and fresh mozzarella as opposed to the shredded American kind. One pie is good for 2 people if you're hungry, if not, then 3 people will devour the 6 thin slices quickly. Its quite expensive at $16+ per pie, but its certainly different from other places and I often regret getting pizza anywhere else. If you're expecting a thick fullfilling slice, then this place is not for you, this is more of a gourmet pizza. The rest of the food on the menu is good, but not as notable as the pizza.

I have eaten at the restaurant before; it's fine - as good as Patsy's, but pricier.
Unfortunately, the management is not service-oriented. I had called the day before I planned to place a big order to make sure they could deliver it, and they assured me they could. The next morning when I placed the order, they said they could not deliver because I was two blocks (northbound) out of there range. The manager wasn't even apologetic! I was left in a lurch, and they couldn't even extend the courtesy of walking two extra blocks when one of their employees had told me they would! For this reason, I will not be going to Angelo's anymore.

This place gives Patsy's a run for their money. The staff is so much friendlier and the pizza is the best. This place also has a full bar, unlike most of the pizza places in NYC. Truly one of New York's hidden treasures. Ever since i've discoverd the place. I have not been back to patsy's. Consistently delicious.

The coal fired, thin crust pizza served at Angelo's is about as close to perfect as humanly possible. The crust is wonderfully crisp and tasty, the sauce is zesty but not overspiced, and the cheese and toppings are as fresh and mouth-watering as any I've had. I recommend trying the simple Margherita pizza to savor unadorned New York style pizza at its finest.

We visited New York and stayed at the Parker Meridien hotel. Fortunately, Angelo's pizza was directly across the street. For thin crust, coal oven pizza Angelo's is great. We ate at Lombardi's during our stay too and Angelo's was as good or better than that.

We were able to be sat right away, and were immediately greeted. They brought us bread while we waited. The food was definitely excellent. The best pizza I have ever had! Just a little warning, unles you have a huge appetite, share. The portions were huge.

The food was great, we had a salad and a small cheese pizza. They brought us rolls before the meal which were good, and the ""coal oven"" pizza was some of the best thin crust I've ever had. It was a bit expensive though, but it was quick and the food made up for it. Great for pre-theater.
