The theme at Angels restaurant is fairly obvious the minute you walk through the front door. The heavenly atmosphere, complete with murals of glorified spirits, creates a cherubic charm that has comforted diners at this Italian mainstay for the last 14 years. Every corner of the eatery is decorated with angels, from the tabletops to the decorative "angel tree" that sits upon a pedestal in the main dining room.
Angels restaurant takes pride in its homemade dishes. Everything from the Gorgonzola Bread appetizer to the Fresh Strawberry Romanelli dessert is made on premises. An extensive menu, complete with almost any Italian dish imaginable, is value oriented, as most customers take home much of their over-sized portions each night. Fresh pastas, such as the San Biagio - farfalle pasta with asparagus, sun dried tomatoes, basil, garlic, shallots, white wine, and fresh chopped tomatoes in extra virgin olive oil, and the Melanzane Sorrentino - slices of eggplant layered with ricotta cheese, spinach, plum tomato sauce and melted mozzarella cheese are two popular favorites.
Around the corner from the main restaurant is "On the Wings of...", the successful catering arm of Angels. The talented staff is available to prepare various menus for any corporate or private function. Hot and cold sandwiches, along with healthy salads and freshly baked desserts are available as well.
Gourmandise Magazine dubbed Angels restaurant "Paradise found!" Valued as one of the best deals on the Upper East Side, few eateries in the area can assure guests the romance and charm found here.
