Italians know the value of impeccable ingredients — when you have something as beautiful as a freshly shaved piece of Prosciutto de Parma, what could you possibly do to make it taste better? That's the MO at D'Angelo, a hip new spot for Italian small plates from beloved South Florida restaurateur Elia Angelo. The menu is vast but simple, full of authentic ingredients that prove they're worth far more than any expert technique. The place serves half a dozen fresh carpaccios made from local swordfish, tuna, and salmon; simple appetizers like mozzarella-stuffed zucchini flowers and sautéed clams in tomato broth; and salads such as octopus with Amalfi lemon or calamari and shrimp with green basil pesto. D'Angelo also makes incredible wood-fired pizzas with those same ingredients. It leverages stracchino, taleggio, and burrata cheeses into creamy pizze bianche and spreads San Marzano tomatoes over crackly thin crust for traditional margherita pies. Best of all, the sleek, modern feel of the place coupled with a breezy front patio make D'Angelo a prime spot to sit and enjoy all these fine ingredients the way Italians do: with a bottle of red or white, a few friends, and plenty of time. Bellissimo.

How do you give Best New Restaurant to a restaurant you are just now reviewing? Weird.

The italian shills are so transparent (Ramona). They always say "it reminds me of Italiy". These italians are so delusional about their restaurants its downright comical.

Who wrote this description, the owner? I don't see that New Times ever reviewed this restaurant, so how do you know its "the best" new restaurant?

This restaurant reminds me of being in Italy. The pizzas are amazing, the frittatas are fantastic and the tapas list will keep me coming back again and again. Great choice!

I've been there twice. Everything is pre-made and re-heated (except the pizza). Its a great idea that doesn't live up to the hype.
