After reading numerous recommendations, my wife and I ventured this evening to Angelo's for some alone time from our 4 girls. Overall, we thought the staff was 4 stars and the food, 2. We also thought the overall value, pricewise, was good.\r
The White Pizza and Pepperoni calzone were underseasoned (mostly the crusts) and we had ricotta overload by the time we were done. Their ""garlic"" bread appeared to be just pizza dough strips without any seasoning whatsoever. It was served with a tomato sauce for dipping, but again, the sauce seemed to have been poured out of a Hunt's can. Just a little basil, anyone? Please? The pizza crust was a bit floppy in addition to tasting very plain. OK, I think you get the message.\r
The service, however, was much better. We felt very welcomed. Their timing did break down a little after we requested our check as their 2 servers seemed to get in the weeds with the few tables that were present on a somewhat quiet Saturday night.\r
My wife and I pondered returning to try some different pizza flavors to give them another shot, but in the end decided that the crust, sauce, and ricotta dissatisfiers would probably remain a constant. Although we tend to favor indy spots, our next pizza venture will bring us to the NYPD Pizza place in Mount Juliet, in the Providence mall area.
Pros: Hospitable staff made the lacking food palatable
Cons: The food needed much more seasoning out of the kitchen.
