The first thing a person must ask themselves before deciding to dine at is "are you hungry?" No, really you better be ready to eat before you walk through those doors.
My better half and I were craving some home-cooked Italian cuisine Monday night and that is what we discovered when we dined at Michael Angelo's.
Angelo's looks like your typical Italian restaurant. It is nothing special to look at, but we were not there for the scenery.
We were greeted by a kind waitress who took our orders promptly and brought us our beverages. The restaurant offers a decent wine and beer selection with many main stays like Budweiser and Sam Adams and a few micro brews like Sierra Nevada.
My better half ordered a Tortellini Giadinare, which is Cheese tortellini served with sauteed broccoli, mushrooms, plum tomatoes, eggplant, olive oil and garlic. A plate of over 40 tortellinis and mounds of perfectly cooked vegetables was placed in front of her.
While I ordered the Pasta Carbonara, which is your choice of pasta in alfredo sauce with sauteed bacon, prosciutto ham and onions. The plate was filled to the brim with pasta in a creamy sauce and generous pieces of meat.
Neither of us could finish our meals and both of us sat back with a feeling of satisifaction. (It is a rarity that I do not finish my meal and my better half's.)
All entrees are served with salad and rolls. The rolls were freshly baked and delicious. And the salad bowl was filled to the top with several tasty green vegetables.
Overall, the restaurant is worth the trip and there is no way that you will leave feeling hungry.
The restaurant is open Monday to Sunday from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.
