On paper, Angelo's looks like it should be a great place to eat: a family-owned, authentic Italian restaurant and pizzeria with a laid-back ambience. In reality, the two times I ate at Angelo's were two of the worst dining experiences I've ever suffered in the Clear Lake area.
I made my first trip to Angelo's for a late business lunch on a weekday. The place looked deserted with no one at the host stand and not a single patron in the dining room. We waited for several minutes before a guy poked his head out of the kitchen area, and he acted like we were interrupting his day. On the second trip, I took my girlfriend to Angelo's for a Friday night dinner after one of her coworkers recommended their pizza. On that trip, we were "greeted" by two teenage boys at the host station who were just dripping with attitude. These boys refused to even say "hello" and spent the balance of our meal staring over at our table and making gossipy remarks to one another. Unprofessional and totally unwelcoming.
The wait staff at Angelo's was hardly any better. On both trips, the waitress seemed like she was in a hurry to get us out the door. Before we had been there five minutes she had asked us for our orders three times, the last time with an almost exasperated tone. All through dinner she kept trying to force a second glass of wine on me before I had even finished my first. The whole staff just seemed unprofessional and inhospitable, qualities you don't expect to find at a family-owned Italian restaurant.
The ambience at Angelo's was also less than stellar. The décor is haphazard, with cheesy neon lighting above the prominent bar and booths that seemed to be upholstered in old curtains. The table in our booth was so far from the seat that my girlfriend and I both had to lean forward just to reach our plates. The dining room was so empty on both of my visits that I felt like everyone in the place could hear every word we said. The tall, very concerned looking gentleman (a manager, I guess?) who wandered around the place scanning every table did little to make either of us feel at ease in their dining room.
The food at Angelo's was lackluster verging on Olive-Garden drab. On both trips, the waitress brought out Pilsbury dinner rolls masquerading as garlic bread. On my first trip, we ordered a calamari appetizer that had all the delicacy of store-bought onion rings. One expects more from an $8 antipasti dish. The lasagna entrée was greasy and made with a sauce that was light on everything but tomato. In fact, most of the food at Angelo's lacked adequate spice, with hardly a trace of garlic apparent in anything.
On my second trip I ordered a tomato basil soup that didn't even come close to the same dish at L' Madeleine. The Margherita pizza that my girlfriend and I shared was just atrocious. The crust was chewy and lifeless, the cheese was stringy, and the bland sauce made Papa John's sauce seem downright Neapolitan by comparison. But what made this one of the worst pizzas I've ever had were the huge raw tomato slices that covered the pie. These suckers were barely cooked, and all they added to the pizza was an overwhelming acidity that killed any flavor it ever had. I'm not quite sure what the chef was trying to accomplish with this, and I'm not sure he even really knew how a Margherita should be made. I've had a few Margheritas in my day, but this was not one of them, the name notwithstanding.
All in all, these were terrible dining experiences. From the rude staff to the bland food, Angelo's doesn't really get any part of the Italian dining experience right. What makes me angry about my two trips to Angelo's is that there are so many quality Italian places in Clear Lake where I could've enjoyed a better experience for the same money. In any event, I won't be wasting any more of my time and money at this disaster of a restaurant.
Everybody Loves Angelo's – I live in Hawaii now, but miss the great pizza at Angelo's. The owner looks just like Raymond Barone from the TV show "Everybody Loves Raymond" and Tony looks like Pinnochio's father. How could you not like the atmosphere?
Love the food, the service, and the price – Great food! Loved their grilled chicken fetuccini....also love their handmade pizzas. OMG, to die for. The service is excellent. We waited ONE time in 12 years of going there. I think we waited 5 minutes. They are so courteous, clean, and happy to help you. The accommodate big parties or just two for dinner. Absolutely love all of their food & the prices can't be beat. I drive from West League City to go here, and that's a long way for us to drive for a regular ole nothing fancy dinner.
BEST Place for the Cost, Atmosphere, waiters/waitress', and FOOD***** – Okay you guys. I have lived in this area for over 45 years and frequent all local restaurants. Angelo's is marvelous for anyone. The best pizza anywhere in this area.. . no one compares!!! Their pizza is hand tossed with fresh veggies. We order the Angelo's Special (a little bit of everything). The salads are always cold and on cold plates. The house dressing is to die for! The bread is so-so, so save your appetite for the pizza dough!
Now, a little about the service! WONDERFUL for the past 30 years! I go about twice a month and have never experienced poor service - a feat that others cannot compare. They are always filling up my tea (almost too much) and water glasses.
Price is affordable and worth the food. The atmosphere is VERY nice and clean with very great tables/chairs and booths. I like to eat in a booth next to the windows.
If Angelo ever reads these reviews, I would like to say THANK YOU for being so consistant throughout the years. WE know what we are going to get and expect from you. You have never dissappointed us. You are awesome!!!!
TOTAL disappointment – While visiting the Galveston area a few weekends I took my family to Angelo's for dinner - we had a coupon. The food was TERRIBLE! I am Italian and was hoping for something that was at least tasty if not authentic. My wife and I had pasta dishes which were both not good at all. My daughter's pizza was edible. The mozarella sticks were fine (you can't really mess those up consider they're frozen), but the sauce they brought to dip them in was disgusting. The salad was okay (again - not easy to mess up), but the server didn't bring dressing because they were out of the one I ordered. The service was less than mediocre (our waiter seemed tired and absent-minded), and the table and silverware were not clean. Our meal - using the coupon - cost $40. We spent less money at every other place we ate that weekend and had phenomenal food and service at all the other restaurants. I DO NOT recommend Angelo's at all ... don't waste your money.
Editorial Review – Italian specialties accompany pizza pies at this casual Clear Lake-area family bistro.
Best Italian Food Ever!!! – This is a great restaurant.
When we want comfort food at home, they deliver to League City!!! How Great Is That???
I always get the Chicken Melanzane (chicken breast topped with eggplant & smothered in mozzerella & marina with tons of mushrooms) - it is to die for & you get free bread & spaghetti on the side. . My husband orderes the Antipasto Salad & Bacon Calzone & my son orders the kids chicken tenders with curley fries. There is something for everyone here.
The food is just amazing. I am going to try and copy the Antipasto Salad tonight, but I'm sure I won't do justice. Great wine in the restaurant also.
Always consistant ! – When we're looking for a delicious meal we know Angelo's is the place to go. Always
friendly and great customer service. The rolls are to die for !! Their pizza is the best,
and the Italian Cuisine , well IT AIN'T TO SHABBY.
Excellent European style Pizza – This is the only place we have found in the greater Clearlake area with pizza's that are very close to the European style we had come to love in southern Europe. It's a typical Pizza house but the pizza is excellent!!!
No Flavor – Disappointing. The Fried Mozzarella was bland. The stuffed mushrooms were still raw and tasteless. The cesar salad needed ample amounts of salt of pepper. I doubt any anchovy was in the near vicinty when the dressing was made. My husband had the Chicken Rollatini and I had the Chichen with Eggplant. My father who happens to be Italian and owned Italian restuarants in various countries was with us. He had the veal parmigana. Over all the meals required salt for taste. The service was bland and we had to bus our own table so that our food could be served. Five people were standing inside the booth by the front doors, yet not one said "goodbye" or "come again" or anytthing. Oh, and charging for Garlic Bread is blasphamy!
