The best way to describe the food at Angeli Caffe is "simple but good." The same three words could be used to describe my dear friend Kerfuffle's taste in food. So perfect.
It sucks when one of your best friends lives in Florida, so when Kerfuffle is in town for work, it doesn't matter what I'm up to -- I will do my darndest to see her. I am thrilled that she has a case pending out here, so we will likely see each other a number of times in the next few months!
When the bread is good, you know you're in for a lovely evening.
Crusty warm perfection. Yes!
Croquette di patate ($3.50).
Have you ever wondered what mashed potatoes, salami, and smoked mozzarella taste like deep-fried together? Fanfreakingtastic, that's what!
Ravioli al magro ($12.50).
Spinach and cheese ravioli topped with tomato-basil sauce may not sound that interesting, but let me tell you again -- simple but good. Seriously. If you like pasta, you need to get to Angeli, stat.
Ricotta gnochetti with eggplant ($15).
I don't get excited about pasta very often. Well, I got excited about this one, folks. So delicate and smooth and somewhat creamy yet springy! I loved this!
Kerfuffle enjoyed her simple but good Tahitian vanilla ice cream ($5).
I went to town on the chocolate chunk bread pudding ($8).
The risk of hives was well worth it. Say it with me -- simple but good!
Go to Angeli Caffe! Now! Go! Delicious food for a delicious price!
