Named Best Gourmet Pizza in 2010 by Cleveland Magazine, Angelo's Pizza's experienced dough-flingers conjure pies with freshly made sauce and crust alongside other Italian eats. Pizza incarnations range from the basic original with choice of toppings ($8.19+) to pies of a more radical aesthetic, such as the chicken mac 'n' cheese ($12.95–$22.25) and Acapulco barbecue chicken with pineapple and cinnamon ($12.95–$22.25). Pasta seekers can revel in spaghetti, cavatelli, penne, or fettuccini with veggie or meat toppings ($6.99–$12.29), ideal for satisfying midmeal urges to jump rope. The drink menu boasts local brews such as Great Lakes Dortmunder, as well as whites, reds, and soft drinks. Committed to customer service, Angelo's insists that patrons not 100% pleased with their eats get a replacement dish or a credit for their next visit.
