Johnny 22 Wondering how I would find the public record on the child rape. Was he actually arrested? His arrogance makes me believe this info is true but would like some concrete evidence that could help with a situation. Thanks
latest clipper mag. ad says you get 40$ worth of food for 20 bucks,well,anybody that knows anthony cimino knows that is not going to happen.i smell a scam, beware.....
Just had a wonderful evening at Angelina's. The atmosphere was warm and inviting. It was such a cozy dinner and by far the best part of the evening was the dessert! Our waiter, Kyle, makes the desserts there, well at least the red velvet cheesecake!! It was to die for!! I would recommend just going there for that if nothing else!! Better than any cheesecake I have ever had and he is just a kid maybe 18 years old!! My husband and I are still talking about how good that cake was!! The staff was incredible; everyone from the bar tender, Mike, the busser, Tyler and our waiter Kyle were very good! It was not very busy but we were there after 8 pm.
Too Creepy – The food is ok. But the worst part about this place is the owner. He is a guido wanna be who constantly belittles his employees in front of the customers. It makes you feel very uncomfortable and I feel bad for them. Then he insists on sitting at the table with you, hits on you and actually will eat some of your food and is too cheap to even comp an appetizer or drink or anything. I felt very creeped out during my visit and the food is not worth putting up with him. I will definitely not be back.
Good Meal Here Tonight – Tonight we had the large NY Style two topping pizza, Chicken Parmesan, Spinach Ravioli, and Fettucini Alfredo with Chicken (Special order).
The food was really good. Our waiter was really good too. My only "issue" is that the Calamari Appetizer was a little pricey (but I admit that it could be the going rate now and I am a bit behind the times!)
We were customers at the Brandon location and now trying this new one is Valrico. Both locations were very nice and we'll continue to come back and and to recommend them to friends.
Horrible – We came with a table of 8. To make a long story short, the owner ended up telling a member of our party to "go F--- yourself" because of an issue with one of the dishes. The cops ended up coming. It was an interesting night. Kitchen staff uses same restroom as guests and kitchen staff did not was his hands. Literally the worst restaurant experience of my life.
Grand Opening Soon Closing – Had there pizza several times at old location not bad and fair priced...However sit down at new location was one of the worst Italian meal ever. Way overpriced, had the veal definately not fresh, wife had cheese tortellini tasted store bought, bread was stale with no volume. Daughter had macaroni cheese tasted like a boxed no name brand, son had kids cheese pizza was not bad but shouldn't be for a $7.00 nine inch pizza. Asked why they did no have large pizzas on the menu, stated owner did not want people taking up a 4 top for a pizza, you were forced to buy there 9 in specialty pizzas. Seen a large pizza coming out to go and asked if there was a seperate menu for to go pizzas, yes but we are out of menu's to go...what just opened ...do they not print by the box(es)...crazy tactics. Finally bill came $50.00 (not inc. tip) for two adult and two kids meals with water. Asked if they had military discount...owner stated (to waitress not us) No discounts at this time...ugh does he not know a majority of south Valrico is military....instead of thanking us for our service the waitress gave us a coupon flyer from the owner,,,spend a $100.00 get 10% off...You can run your business any way you like after all it is the land of the free...You are Welcome. The only good point was the staff and our waitress...it is not there fault. Formaggios has no worries about this one, definately not fine Italian dining.
Sahme On Me!!!! – Did not listen to other reviewers as had been befroe and it was not bad- also not alot of choice besides chains out here - service started not bad- wine,salad bread - took long time ofr food- mine was pretty good- wifes not - big problem was chk, ordered $24 bottle of wine-charged for $42- waiter agreed with me but said boss said i should have read label -
told him now I know why all reviewers on line said he was such an ----- and would not be back-
DO NOT GO and tell freinds not too- rip off
Never again! – I can't understand why anyone would go to this place.
The service was awful. No one seemed to care about whether you were there or not. They did not check on our table through out dinner so my usband had to track someone down just to get a refill of water.
The manager was a jerk, never stopped by to check on our dinner experience. He even parks his big car at the entrance when there is not a lot of parking to begin with. Very arrogant!!
My son (18) went there with his girlfriend (very petite girl) and they charged $7 to share a plate! Even Carraba's does not do that!
THE WORSE LASAGNA WE HAVE EVER HAD! – First of all, I have dined at great Itailan Restaurants in my life and some not so great. This place however, was the worse. A friend had a birthday dinner there in the back room, NO AC, the waitress only came to our table once, the bread was not fresh and my daughter and I ordered lasagna, It taste like what I could only describe as what Alpo dog food must taste like. If it wasn't for being there with friends and it being a bd celebration I would have sent it back. The man that took our order looked like something out of a mofia movie. He had these gaudy rings on almost every finger. And on top of the terrible food we were charged an outragious tip fee for someone who only brought us coke once. WE WILL NEVER GO THERE AGAIN AND I WOULDN'T TELL MY WORSE ENEMY TO EAT THERE.
