Acclaimed chef and restaurateur Angelo Elia of Casa D’Angelo fame, has recently introduced a new menu of delectable Italian small plates and authentic Italian pizzas at his relaxed, affordable Tuscan eatery, D’Angelo Pizza ▪ Wine Bar ▪ Tapas. The new menu is now available for lunch and dinner.
Elia has received raves for his Casa D’Angelo restaurants in Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton and the Atlantis Hotel in Paradise Island and his recently opened Roman dining concept in Delray Beach, D’Angelo Trattoria. He recently appeared at the James Beard House for a Winter Truffle Extravaganza and was a featured chef at South Beach Wine and Food Festival’s “Best of the Best” 2012.
The new menu at D’Angelo Pizza ▪ Wine Bar ▪ Tapas reflects the fresh authentic Italian ingredients found at all of Elia’s outposts. Affordably priced, the new menu features Italian tapas including a delightful seafood salad – calamari, octopus, shrimp and mussels over arugula ($14); sautéed clams and mussels in a roasted garlic and spicy tomato sauce ($13) and the Tour of Italy – a sampling of arancini, suppli, potato croquette and crispy polenta ($13). Other great starters include the calamari & escarole soup with shrimp in a spicy tomato broth ($9) and the marinata bruschetta – marinated housemade eggplant and Parma prosciutto atop lightly toasted slices of Italian baguette ($9). Ceviche and carpacci are plentiful and include the salmone – salmon carpaccio with lemon thyme and zucchini ($11) and the maialino – cured pork, arugula, and black olives with an orange citronette ($12).
Authentic Italian pizza, a specialty of D’Angelo, is not to be missed and includes additions such as the Corsica with buffalo mozzarella, clams, garlic and crispy pancetta ($15) and the Portofino, a seafood lover’s heaven with calamari, mussels, shrimp, clams and cherry tomatoes ($16). Diners can still find the great signature items from the former menu including the suppli rice balls ($10) and a ‘create your own board’ of imported meats & cheese ($20-$40).
Guests can complement each meal with a glass or bottle of specialty Italian wines and one of D’Angelo’s housemade desserts or gelato ($6 - $7).
