Restaurant Review of Angelina's in Green Bay, WI

Angelina's is an Italian restaurant located in downtown Green Bay, Wi. The restaurant is run and owned by an Italian family from Sicily, Italy. All their sauces and family recipes are made in house. I stopped in for lunch and since it was a beautiful weather day, I chose to sit on their outside patio, which is located behind the restaurant. Their patio is quite charming.

The patio's atmosphere gives off the feel of walking into a café in Italy. There are pretty floral planters and ivy growing everywhere. My server brought me a menu and told me of the lunch specials for that day. I chose a panini meatball sandwich which comes with a small salad for $11.00. My server brought my beverage and also brought out sliced bread with fresh parmesan cheese, balsamic vinegar and olive oil. As I waited for my sandwich I enjoyed my peaceful surroundings with music playing in the background. After a time, my salad was brought out first. It consisted of fresh mixed greens, small fresh mozzarella balls, cucumbers and tomatoes mixed with delicious light homemade vinaigrette dressing. After I finished with my salad, I was then brought out my sandwich. The sandwich consisted of two homemade very large meatballs, spread with their in-house made sauce and melted fontina cheese, all inside a toasted multigrain ciabatta bread. The panini sandwich had such a delicious savory flavor that I wish I had more to take home with me!

I then ordered dessert; a dish of pistachio gelato for $6.00. The gelato consisted of two scoops with fresh shaved pistachio nuts sprinkled on top. The gelato was delicious and of good color and quality; for I have had my share of gelatos when I vacationed in Florence and Rome, Italy. Angelina's also serves dinners and have a wonderful wine list and full bar.
