Angilo's Pizza

Sorry it's taken so long to get this post up! I've even forgotten how to start this off! Quite a while ago, back in March, Nik treated us to Angilo's Pizza for his third go-around. Angilo's has been serving the greater Cincinnati area for over 50 years and quite a few locations. The one closest to us is in Norwood, not too far away. One of their everyday specials is 2 large, 2 topping pizzas for $18.95, what a steal! And they were nice enough to let us do our usual pepperoni pizza and then a second pizza with 3 toppings under that deal. Nik chose banana peppers, tomatoes, and onions as the 3 toppings for the second pizza.

(Pepperoni pizza)

Here's what we thought of Angilo's:

(1-5 scale, 1=worst, 5=best)
Appearance (overall): 3.67
Aroma (overall): 4.00
Taste (overall): 3.75
Crust - 3.83
Cheese - 3.67
Toppings - 3.50
Sauce - 3.92
Pepperoni Pizza (overall): 4.00
Specialty Pizza & Menu Options: 3.25
X-factor: 3.33

Angilo's wasn't our favorite pizza place of the ones we've tried so far, but Nik liked the family/neighborhood feel of the restaurant. Kevin liked the square slices and the spicy sauce and thought that it was a thin crust that ate like a thick crust pizza. Nik thought that the crust was interesting and spongy, while I thought it was crunchy while being spongy/bready (which I wasn't a huge fan of). I also liked the spiceness of the sauce, but thought it had too much oregano in it. Also, they put the pepperoni under the cheese, which I don't think is nearly as attractive as having them on top. Kevin thought the onions on the second pizza were too strong and I thought both pizzas were good ranch dipping pizzas. Nik thought the pizzas had a freezer pizza quality, but in a good way. The overall menu wasn't too exciting, although they do serve Cincinnati chili.

Overall, a pretty good pizza at a good price! Next up, a special surprise post!....

Sorry for the month long hiatus! Spring travels have interfered with pizza night quite a bit over the last month or so. We have 2 new posts to catch up on, one from March and one from last week. So, hopefully we can get those up before next Thursday when we get back in to the routine again (Kevin's at a conference this week). Soon your mouth can water in hungry jealousy!
