So authentic is the food and aura of Angelina Ristorante, that you might find yourself wondering whether or not you are dining in the heart of New York’s Little Italy, reliving a scene from “The Godfather.” Founded in 1988, this quaint, trattoria-style restaurant offers Italian cuisine inspired by the culinary prowess of the co-founder’s grandmother, whose portrait now hangs in the restaurant bearing her name. The menu features decadent favorites such as gnocchi, veal parmesan, and tiramisu, as well as daily and seasonal specials. This Lakeview gem is ideal for intimate dinner dates (try to secure one of the romantic window tables!) and large family gatherings alike. As a result of its superb food and cozy atmosphere, Angelina’s, which serves lunch, dinner, and an infamous Sunday champagne brunch, has successfully managed to make a name for itself in a city brimming with famous Italian restaurants. So if you’re searching for a spot that Michael Corleone himself would approve of, look no further than Angelina Ristorante.
