We have gone to Angelo's for years and have always been pleased with the food and the service, (though it does seem to be a little overpriced). Regardless, when someone wanted some good "American" Italian food, and though a little kitschy, Angelo's was the place to go. I've always appreciated the family atmosphere and that it is a family run, and served, restaurant.
However, we will not return.
Four of us joined five other friends for a holiday dinner celebration yesterday evening and all seemed to be going well, until the food arrived.
The very frazzled server brought out 8 dinners.
As there were 9 of us we waited for the final plate of food but it didn't show up.
We finally got the attention of the (very frazzled) server and she said it was coming.
So everyone began eating rather than let their dishes get cold. I, however, sitting next to my foodless friend, opted to wait until his dish arrived.
When our other 7 friends were half-way through their meals I got up to speak personally to the (very frazzled) server about the missing dish.
Instead of showing any concern or attempting to rectify the situation she instead turned on me declaring the food was coming, it wasn't her fault and we should be more patient. I returned, stunned, to my seat, as she began haranguing the cooking staff through the serving window (which was near our seats).
Eventually our 7 friends finished their dishes and the (very frazzled) server rushed over and exasperatedly asked if anyone wanted dessert. I guffawed and said our friend hadn't even gotten HIS MEAL yet. She looked confused. We asked for our checks. She went to the serving window, grabbed a plate and plunked it down in front our friend who wolfed down his pasta (which they comped) like a starving street urchin. I asked for a box for my untouched, and now congealed, pasta. (I would have gladly shared my dish with him had we not been told repeatedly that his meal was on its way.)
We did not leave a tip, and as I said, we won't be back.

The service at Angelo's is never good, but tonight was a new low. On the plus side, the Seafood Canneloni seldom disappoints, and we like the mozzarella and tomato antipasto. But you have to be desperate for something close to home in Burien to put up with the poor customer service.

We arrived at a little before 5:00 p.m. on Saturday (we hadn't eaten lunch and were hungry) with our well-behaved 3-year-old girl. The hostess told a helper (I'm guessing he buses the tables) where to seat us and walked away. While he was getting the menus, a trim, white-haired man in a chef's jacket came and told him to seat us at "table 19." (Strange -- why would a chef leave the kitchen to direct dining room traffic?) We were led to a section with 12 tables, all empty and waiting except for a large party celebrating a birthday, seated at three 4-tops pushed together . Table 19 turned out to be right next to them - literally less than 12 inches from their chair backs. I asked why, with the rest of the room completely empty, we had to be seated right at their backs, and was told that "the man" (indeed!) had said so, and that some tables were reserved.

The server was inattentive at best, although there were a couple of lowly helpers to the servers who were really running their butts off and appeared to do all the work. We appreciated it, because otherwise we would never have gotten drink refills, our check, or possibly even our food. A couple more tables of people arrived, and they were seated in the *same* section at tables on the far side of the room, the ones that supposedly weren't available when we were seated. Someone eventually came and put a "reserved" sign on ONE table -- another right next to us and the party table. The rest of the tables remained empty for the hour we were there.

The mystery remains: Why did a chef have us seated in the worst possible place available? (There were two other sections that were mostly empty as well.) Does he hate children? My partner is Latino -- is he racist? Or was it a random act of stupidity? I took a business card on the way out with the intention of complaining to the owner -- and found that the chef is the owner. Could it be the same chef who decided where to seat us? I have to assume so, as I can think of no reason why a *chef* would make a seating decision otherwise.

So I guess this was our last visit to Angelo's. I sure wish we could get some good, local restaurants run by decent people in Burien!

Pros: great people, great food, nice prices

Angelo's is a good family-style Italian restaurant. Good atmosphere with hearty food at a decent price. Good wine--always important with Italian food--is available in a medium-price range.

My husband and I checked out this Italian place in Burien. The food was great but the atmosphere is a little dark for my taste. Fine service, fine menu, fine wine. Everything was okay but it hasn't seemed to draw us back.

For good tasting Italian food, this was a wonderful place to eat.. It is a little pricey, but the food and service has been wonderful. The food was very flavorful, hot and served by pleasant waiters. The drinks are reasonable priced as well. I would recommend this establishment for special dining, comfortable atmosphere and pleasant staff.

If you ever want to eat seafood cannelloni that is out of this world this is the right place to go. Besides the cannelloni the other items on the menu are worth checking out.

Im Italian , I went to eat at this restaurant thinking was Italian but here as in many restaurants in america of Italian nothing. The pizza, tomato and cheese are American taste. Then I tried the chicken cacciatora but in Italy we dont cook the chicken like this one, there was a chicken fried with over a bad tomato sauce. The pasta its too cook they dont know maybe that we like the pasta al dente. If you want to eat Italian take a frozen pizza its much more good ..

I went here for the first time last week and I wasn't sure what to expect. I asked our hostess about vegetarian options and she was very helpful, she even hunted down a chef to see if they had cheese-filled ravoli available for me. The food was delicious, and the tiramisu was devine! I would reccomend this place to anyone and everyone.

The best kept secret in the SouthEnd. The steak of choice on the main menu is ribeye! Very tender, no matter how they cook it. They have a special menu several times a week with different cuts, from filets to new yorks. Nice and comfortable in the restaurant, with several banquet rooms. Plus a nice roomy bar with 3 televisions. Great service...great bargain!

Angelo's is a great Italian restuarant.
If you like Italian with some rich
sauce, this is the place. They have
a great meeting room as well for
family or office party.

I crave the Roquefort wine steak - the sauce is to die for. It's so nice to have a really good Italian place in the southend. It's a bargain too!
