THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Tony Angello's Restaurant Review

: Tony Angello’s has been around so long that it has truly become part of the fabric of New Orleans. While it may be a bit off the beaten path in the heart of a residential block, New Orleanians have had no trouble finding it for decades. Bring a major appetite so you can tuck into an Italian feast over the course of a long evening. The prix-fixe "Feed Me, Mr. Tony" menu, as it is known, is a tour de force of the kitchen's mainstay items. For sheer diversity of pastas, vegetables, seafood and meat in one sitting, it's hard to beat this parade of progressive dining without hitting a buffet. Made to order cannoli is the ideal dessert, but its close rivals are spumoni and lemon ice, a local favorite. The wine list complements the food and includes domestic selections, but also a number of tried-and-true Italian offerings, with several by the glass. Light, either natural or electric, is in short supply in the maze of small and moderate-size dining rooms, done up with trappings to go with the ranch-style bungalow the restaurant occupies.
