Walking into Angelina's, located in Westport, I was welcomed by a wait staff, but wasn’t impressed with the atmosphere. The lack of noise and decor made the restaurant seem quiet for a Saturday night dinner.
After walking in, I noticed it was a small, one-room building with a kitchen, but the tables are spaced out making it a comfortable place to sit.
After I sat down, I was immediately given a basket of bread, a cup of water and a menu. I was overwhelmed by the number of choices.
The dishes ranged from New York cheese pizzas to authentic chicken parmigiana. I decided to start with broccoli dish as an appetizer and a chicken parmigiana for the main course. After five minutes of waiting, my broccoli dish came out and soon after that my chicken parmigiana came.
The broccoli dish was a good size for an appetizer, but it was loaded with gobs and gobs of garlic. However, after taking the first bite, I realized that the garlic actually made the dish taste so much better. The broccoli was soft and melted in my mouth after I took a bite.
The chicken parmigiana came out within minutes. The plate was covered with a large piece of chicken parm and angel hair pasta on the side. Once I cut into the chicken parm and took a bite, the roof of my mouth burned due to the sauce. However, otherwise, it tasted delicious. The chicken parmigiana was cooked perfectly.
