Nestled in the PGA Commons, the picturesque patio lined with cozy red wingback chairs is the perfect spot to enjoy a glass of wine and fresh table-side mozzarella as the sun sets. Illuminated by a warm glow of string lights, the outdoor space heats up with a lively outdoor bar and cool evening breeze. With the inviting ambience, and even more inviting staff, make yourself at home as you prepare for a culinary trip to Italy.
Arguably the best Italian cuisine in Palm Beach Gardens, Vic & Angelo's serves up authentic Italian fare with a modern twist. Their menu pays homage to the culinary traditions of Italy, and each item is cooked to order using customary Italian cooking methods. They use the finest ingredients (San Marzano tomatoes imported from Naples, Italy!) and create each dish by hand in-house, including pasta, sausage, and mozzarella.
We began our enchanting evening with a lovely Charcuterie Board featuring a selection of Italian meats, cheeses, flavorful jams, and garlic toast. Paired with a glass of Meiomi and a split of Prosecco, the night was off to a lovely start.
We continued with the Chicken Parmigiano and Risotto al Tartufo, two dishes that were absolute perfection. The Chicken Parmigiano was cooked perfectly with a fresh and flavorful san marzano plum tomato sauce and fior di latte semi-soft cheese, served with classic rigatoni. The Risotto al Tartufo, or truffle risotto, was heaven in a bowl. This deliciously decadent dish married cremini, portabella and oyster mushrooms, parmigiano reggiano, truffle carpaccio, and cream to make a culinary masterpiece. If you're a fan of truffles like us, opt for table-side shaved truffles (yes, that's a thing!). To see the full menu, click here.
The hearty portions will leave you completely satisfied, but be sure to leave room for the dessert. Vic & Angelo's is known for their San Gennaro Feast, which is just that, a feast for the eyes and mouth! This spectacular dessert includes a cannoli, made to order zeppoles, gelato, chocolate and caramel sauce, and cotton candy the size of your head. Presented like a colorful candy land with gummy bears and marshmallows galore, this dessert is truly sensational.
We thoroughly enjoyed our dining experience at Vic & Angelo's. Many thanks to the welcoming and gracious staff, impeccable service, and, of course, incredible food. If you're looking for truly authentic Italian food, Vic & Angelo's is sure to be a new top choice for a night out.
