Italian food with a South African touch

Lynne Gadd-Claxton

IF you enjoy pasta then Angelo’s offers you triple the choice of where to get your favourite Italian cuisine with a South African touch. Here, we rate which Angelo’s offers you the best decor, ambiance, sights and, of course, taste.

Angelo’s Walmer, situated on the corner of Main Road and Sixth Avenue, has the best decor, with beautiful wall art and lighting. Seating is spacious and the restaurant does not feel cluttered. Service was slow – but as it was a Sunday, our table was in no hurry to leave.

We enjoyed our conversation over a delicious serving of green chicken curry (R56.50) and a filling chicken and mayo tramezzini (R25.50). Inquiries: (041)501-2899.

If an outlook to Shark Rock Pier and the waves crashing on the rocks is what you want, then Angelo’s – the Afritalian Cafe – on Marine Drive is where you will find it.

The service was good, as well as our food, which included the steak shawarma (R34.50) and their renowned chicken pasta (R49.50).

It was a beautiful day and all tables were occupied. We had to wait 20 minutes for a table.

While waiting, we took a leisurely stroll on Hobie Beach’s promenade and when space was available the manager gave us a ring to let us know our table was ready. Inquiries: (041) 583-5862.

The third Angelo’s is situated at 10 Parliament Street in Central. The restaurant is small with street-dining an option.

It opens onto the street and in the windy city you can expect assorted litter to be blown into the restaurant.

The service is mediocre but the quality remains what you come to expect from Angelo’s.
