A good day.
Someone below me must have had a bad day a very, very bad day. Not me. My day was perfect. I went to bed with the sweet thoughts of D'Angelo Ristorante after a beautiful date. Okay you may say I like the restaurant because I was on a date. I am thinking I liked the date because of the restaurant, if you know what I mean.
After a wonderful dinner we slipped away to the bar for a late night drink. Once we got our buzz going we were on the dance floor working that pasta off.
Very poor all around..
As an italian american who grew up eating the real thing, Deangelos is not anything I would recommend. The food was mediocre, a step above Olive Garden, maybe.
Additionally, my friend ordered one dish and received another and the bill was not adjusted accordingly. We also ordered an overpriced bottle of chianti and we received a different vintage than listed on the wine list. Upon returning home we found this vintage retails for approximately $13-$15.
The most frustrating and irritating thing about our experience was that there was no attempt made to explain or remedy the above situation by the staff. The bartender claimed there was "no manager on duty" and we could call back in the morning to complain. The bartender, mind you, strikes a very close resemblance to one of the co-owners pictured on the restaurant's website.
There are many excellent italian restaurants in Philadelphia and many are byob. I suggest you do your research and ask around.
Best & Only restaurant our Family goes to!.
For over twenty years D'Angelo's is our only dining out destination. No matter the time of year the service is EXCELLENT and always has been. We have had private romantic dinners to huge family gatherings there for over 20 + people. And still the food is heaven scent, we find the portions very generous, my husband is 6'6" tall 300 lbs, if he is full after a dinner there then it does not get any better. Every major family event is celebrated at D"Angelo's and God willing will continue to be for many years to come. They are simply the best at Italian food to be had in Rittenhouse Square.

Underwhelmed.. It seems to me this place is more popular for the bar/dancing scene than the food, because I was pretty underwhelmed the few times I ate here. Small portions and hefty prices to go with it. While the food wasn't terrible, I can't say it was really memorable--maybe my Italian heritage makes me extra fussy!
Fun for the mature crowd. If you are over 35, enjoy dancing to music from the 70's & 80's, and looking for someone of the opposite sex this place has it all. You can dance until 2:00am (and maybe even later) and meet some of the area's friendlist people. People from their 30's to their 60's come here, and it's non-stop fun.
great. i got a chance to meet one of the cooks. His name was carlo and he was from Naples,Italy. By the taste of the food, i could tell he wasn't lying. it was so delicious, that i felt like i was in naples myself! those guys in the kitchen really know what theyr'e doing.
Delicious!. My boyfriend and I go out to dinner about once a week and we wanted to go somewhere that we had not been yet. So, this was our first vist to D'Angelo's. I was so impressed. The wine selection was extensive, the food was delicious and the service was great! Never did we wait for something that we needed. Also, although the tables are quite close it felt cozy not crowed. My only suggestion for improvement would be a bit of music in the dining areas. It was great.
Like Grandmom's. The very best Italian food I have ever had in a restaurant. I even had to ask if their Italian Grandmother was back in the kitchen doing the cooking... they said no, but the dishes are all hers!
