If you want to eat some good pizza in a restaurant setting, Angelo's Pizza might be your place. I have been going to this place for years and have never been disappointed. I usually go to the location on Broadway, next to the David Letterman Show, but, this time, I decided to go to the one few blocks from there, on 57th between 6th and 7th.
I admit that I was surprised it was not that crowded, especially upstairs. Good: that way the noise level would be acceptable!
At Angelo's, it always starts with bread that I usually dip in a mix of parmesan cheese and olive oil...
We started off our meal with some salads. We were seven people so, two salads and three pizzas were enough for us. The first salad was the insalata mista, made with mixed greens, tomatoes, carrots and olives.
The second one was the insalata Romana, composed of romaine lettuce and shaved parmesan cheese.
These salads are fairly large, perfect for sharing. I should mention that one of my colleagues is vegetarian, so we asked for the dressing on the side as the one for the insalata Romana contains anchovies.
Then came the long awaited pizza (I did not go there for salads!). The first one was made with ricotta, olives and sausage.
The second one with pepperoni and peppers.
The third one with sun dried tomatoes, olives and onions.
I love their pizza: first of all, they have a large choice of toppings and you can make your pizza white or red (understand with tomato sauce or ricotta and mozzarella). Then, the thin crust is delicious, nicely charred and crispy. It was definitely a hit. Last, there is always a nice amount of fresh basil.
Angelo's Pizza is definitely a place to know Midtown: they have good pizza at reasonable prices (no slice though). And if you do not like pizza, they have plenty of other dishes like pasta or heros.
Enjoy (I did)!
