About this Business
From Our Editors
Angelina Ristorante opened its doors in 1988 as a culinary homage to cofounder Nunzio Fresta's Italian grandmother. Within its colorful, chandelier-illuminated interior, executive chef Fred Ramos employs experience at top-notch Chicago eateries such as Room21 and Gioco to devise trattoria-style dishes draped in zesty sauces and seasonal ingredients. Choice cuts of duck breast, veal, and beef shoulder mingle with sides of creamy polenta or whipped potatoes, and homemade morsels of gnocchi and ravioli are rolled by hand before being draped in cheese- and wine-based sauces.
