Such a great place either for a date night or to bring the family for dinner! We ordered a mule and a strawberry Rita, both were absolutely amazing, we also ordered the ribs and spicy oysters both were mouth watering delicious ! We ordered our kids a cheese pizza and pasta with meatballs. The pizza was crispy and cheesy , the pasta and meatballs wasn't that great, it was a bit on the bland side. We ordered frutti di mari and it was fresh and flavorful. We polished off our great meal with tiramisu and panna cotta for dessert. Highly recommend and can't wait to be back!

I have had so many lovely lunches and dinners at Angelo's. This is one of my favorite places to take friends visiting after a walk or bike ride on the platte. Angelos has a wonderful atmosphere both inside and out. The patio spaces makes you feel well separated from your neighbors and the additional first come first serve seating in the grass makes this a good place to stop by for happy hour even if you don't have a rezzie. For dinner inside, make sure you have that rezzie tho or you will be waiting a long looooong while. On tap wine from carboy next door is amazing and their house classes start at $7. All the pasta dishes are really good. Some of my favorite items are the mushroom gnocchi salad, bolognese, all the raviolis and the garlic oysters!! Everything you try will be delish!

The food here is great, and came out fast especially since they were busy. I was satisfied with all of our food, service, and the cleanliness of the restaurant. We definitely will come back here again. They have a great happy hour as well, all of the prices were reasonable. One the best experiences Ive had going out here in Colorado.

O M G! You have to try this place. We moved within walking distance, so we've been a few times now. The relleno ravioli is awesome. It looks like an Italian dish, but tastes just like a Mexican dish. It's kind of weird at first because your taste buds aren't in line with what your eyes are looking at. But trust me, it is delicious. The boys loved the "original" chargrilled oysters and the chipotle chargrilled oysters. The burrata is also a great appetizer. It comes with a decent sized burrata ball with an olive tapenade, pesto, and tomato jam along with toasted bread. I layer all of those flavors together - it's so good. The arancini is really good, they are fried risotto cakes. Can't go wrong with fried anything. The balsamic glazed ribs are a little crispy, sweet, and have an Asian flavor. The bolognese is tasty, not a ton of meat, but still really good. The arugula in the steak gorgonzola fettuccini adds a great flavor to the dish. I didn't care too much for the vodka sauce, the meatball, or the bruschetta. But there are so many wonderful dishes to chose from. The desserts have all been really good to. You can't go wrong with any of them, but my favorite is the tiramasu. I'm also a fan of the pear mules there. They are really refreshing on these hot days. Check them out! Cheers!

After spending some time at Breckenridge Brewery next door, my friend and I walked over to Angelo's Taverna as the sun went down. We got a little lost and probably should have driven, but it's a pretty area to be explore. The restaurant seemed packed, but we were fortunately able to sit at the bar right away. Such a fun, lively vibe! We ordered a glass of house wine and the Butternut Squash Ravioli. It's one of those menu items that keep catching your eye when you try scanning the rest of the page for a better option. SO many great choices! I want to come back and try more, i.e. lamb lollipops and lobster gnocchi. The ravioli was good, though I ended up adding a little extra salt. Another great spot in Colorado to have a group outing or date night, especially if you pair it with Breckenridge Brewery. Though I live a little far from Littleton and might try the Denver location at some point, this was totally worth the further drive. And next time I won't forget to check out their $1 oyster happy hour special!

This place is fabulous. I could have oysters every day of the week!!! Professional and friendly, even the management makes you feel like you've been family friends for ever!! I feel like Jacqueline on a Rozann budget. Gotta love it.

I already fell in love with Angelo's Taverna from the Denver location, but I might have fallen harder for the Littleton location just because of the huge change in atmosphere! I love the beautiful decor and the spaciousness that makes me feel much more comfortable and cozy than the Denver location. The service is also much attentive and welcoming! We were attended pretty well, and the staff clearly knows the menu. I ended up ordering the Exit 9 Grilled Chicken Sandwich, which was super tasty. Great way to feel healthy while actually enjoying the taste as well, haha! Since it was Monday, they had a special mussel deal with pasta. My friend went straight for that deal after having a hardcore craving for seafood. Needless to say, she left the restaurant extremely satisfied and full. Wonderful restaurant that is worth the extra drive!

This has been on my bucket list and was awesome. Had friends in town, and we hit a ghost tour and didn't think about most restaurants being closed by the time we finished, which we ended up crazy hungry. I was hoping to get in with a cool unique Denver spot, and this fit the bill. Thankfully, we got in here with an hour before they closed. Our service was prompt and to the point, good suggestions, and the food came out quick. I loved the setting here, and they have a nice sized patio too. My friends wanted pizza, which I didn't, but there were LOTS of options for me in skipping out on the za, though my friend's pizza did look amazing, and they were impressed with the fresh toppings. Our server recommended the balsamic glazed ribs - holy cow these were awesome. I also tried the meatballs, which were truly fresh made, nice portion, and fantastic. Can't wait to get back here!

I wonder how many of the reviews are paid for. It was sub par at best, my spouse liked it but he had enough wine that anything would be good. We love spending our summers in denver because people are amazing, in the past 3 years we haven't met anyone as rude as our bartender. But who cares we weren't there to be her friend despite her pointing at us and trying to complain to the manager before we could complain about her (which we weren't going to do) There isn't an Italian chef in site and it's the furthest thing from authentic Italian food. What Italian restaurant on planet earth doesn't have espresso? Sub par on a good day and Denver has amazing food but what a let down. Stop paying people to write fake reviews and simply put that money into making authentic Italian food like you say you do.

I just love Angelo's: food is always wonderful, drinks are amazing (delicious house wine and cider), pleasant space with inside and outside sitting areas, friendly and helpful staff, plenty of parking. The best happy hour for the oysters (always amazing quality)!! Please keep in mind that you can't make reservations but you can call ahead to ensure you don't have to wait too long (usually we get seated right away if we show up before 4:30 pm but does get pretty busy after that).

Great food and service. Now if they would only open one in Ft. Worth, Tx. Highly recommend. Great gluten-free menu as well. (DIL said she believes it is the best gluten free pizza she has ever tasted). So many great options!!




A favorite of our 30-ish kids and their friends, so they brought us here for dinner. The oysters are a group favorite, and there is a nice variety of other dishes -- all good. The drinks and service were also excellent.
