Ristorante Da Angelo

Since Angelo Fraraccio opened the doors to Da Angelo in Battery Point way back in 1994, some things have never changed. There is a buzz in the air and the place is always packed with happy contented diners, enjoying a meal that is as close to traditional home style Italian cooking as you can get in a city half way around the world from central Italy. 

Angelo’s family comes from Frosolone in the Molise region, while his business partner Marco Caporelli’s family comes from the town of Casalbordino in the ajoining region of Abruzzo. The partners are proud of their heritage and their menu has many references to their origins. You can order a Pizza Molise or a Spaghetti Basilicata (named in honour of the mountains to the south) or a Nicolina’s Special, named after Angelo’s mother who along with Marco’s mother makes the traditional gnocchi - the way it has been made in their hometown for centuries. Nothing that you can buy in a supermarket has even the slightest resemblance to this pasta, and tasting these handmade morsels makes you realise the importance of the fact that all the pasta at Da Angelos has always been handmade, fresh on the premise daily.

The restaurant boasts three levels of dining that will cater to anything from an intimate table for two up to a full-on Italian feast for the whole family. It is not unusual to see families or groups of old friends, who have been gathering at Da Angelo’s for decades, enjoying great food, served with traditional Italian passion and enthusiasm.
