Angelico's Pizza Fairfax - report (delivery)

Lowbar | Apr 9, 2006 05:58 PM

Angelico's dropped menus on our neighborhood last week so we put in a delivery order over the weekend. Not sure if this is a chain or what. Pizza is always dependent upon individual tastes, but I have to say my roommate and I both thought it was excellent. We ordered a large (14") with red onions, italian sausage, and bell peppers, with 10 hot wings for $18.99. As one would expect from delivery, the wings were pretty much forgettable though edible...the sauce was spicier than we expected which was a good thing. The pizza was surprisingly very good...though a little bit thicker in the crust than I would have liked (I'm thinking pizza hut "hand-tossed" level of thickness, if they still have that, I haven't done pizza hut in a decade or more). The crust was not greasy at all, I usually go for thinner/greasier but this was very good. The sauce was good pizza sauce...sweet with a little zip. The toppings were excellent and properly portioned. We're not talking 2 Amy's level here but a standard of quality above dominos/pizza hut/vocelli's/papa johns etc was evident.

They also have salads, apps, pasta dishes, pita rolls, calzones, a wide range of sandwiches, and lavash rolls on the menu...all available for delivery in a fairly wide area. A word of caution...if they use the same tomato sauce on their red sauce pastas as they do on the pizza, they are probably not very I said it was good pizza sauce but too sweet for pasta dishes.

They are also open for eat-in and serve beer/wine.

Cons: The large was just enough to fill up the both of us. A little pricey, but not too bad and worth it.

If you're in Fairfax and Tony's isn't your thing (I personally would still opt for Tony's but my roommate prefers this new option), it's definitely worth a try, especially if you're looking for good delivery.
