Angelo and Vinci’s Ristorante – Funk meets Delicious Italian

by Franklin on May 23, 2011

I want to start off by saying sorry about the pictures.  Let me explain.  Entering this place, I was a bit at awe.  Things here, things there, all in a weirdly lit restaurant.  Of course the one seat that was available was dark, and under a green fluorescent light.  Perfect setting for taking great pictures right?  Fascinated by all that was around me, I was reminded of the busy walls of Buca di Bepo. Angeleo and Vinci’s really reminded me of Buca, but in more of a twisted disturbed kind of way.

The menu was just like the decor, busy and cluttered to the maximum.  It took me almost 15 minutes to finally decide on what I wanted. Unsatisfied of my decision (because I wanted to try it all), we finally went with the Rollettini Di Diardino and the Pasta Di Tre.

The Rollettini was a roast beef and pasta, stuffed and rolled with Quattro Formaggi.  It was drenched in cream sauce.  This dish was way too saucy.  The thing was literally swimming in this sauce.  The roast beef was good, so I just made a little sandwich with the rolls they provided. When life gave me lemons, I made a sandwich. :)

 

The Pasta Di Tre was more what I wanted.  It was freshly made ravioli, mezzaluna, and tortellini.  It was simple, just the pastas on the plate, nothing else, sauce of the side.  Also, despite the sausage that looks like a giant turd in the picture, the taste was excellent.  This was pasta at its finest.  Each stuffed pasta tasted delicious in itself. This was a way better dish that the Rollattini.

 

So my experience at Angelo and Vinci’s was interesting.  I had high hopes for this place as I always wanted to go here.  The decor was incredible, but the menu was a headache. I suggest ordering something you would normally get.  Don’t try something out of the ordinary.  You will regret it.  Also, if you have time, check out their supposedly haunted basement.  It is pretty freaky.  They have old dolls and figures and weird black light pictures that is just plain weird. I want to give this place a second chance.  Try it out, you definitely will not forget it.
