In 1998, chef-owner Angelo Elia opened the first Casa D'Angelo off Federal Highway in Fort Lauderdale. A tall, stately, and soft-spoken man, today his reserved nature belies the successful South Florida restaurateur beneath — one who nearly single-handedly built a successful string of restaurants. Now, with a fourth location planned for South Miami as well, Casa D'Angelo Fort Lauderdale — the longstanding flagship establishment — remains fresh and welcoming despite its 15-year run. More than a decade since it introduced Broward County to modern Italian dining, it's a celebratory location for special occasions and intimate dinners, born at a time when Italian restaurants came in just two flavors: trattorias with the tired roster of red-sauce selections or the fancy white-tablecloth ristorantes manned by tuxedo-clad servers. Unlike sibling digs that sport a minimalist decor, his newest restaurant in a former home is cozy and warm. You can't go wrong with pretty much any order here, though expect richness and decadence from veal bone marrow served with pane casareccio to homemade bucatini with wild boar ragout or carbonara. Of all the restaurants owned by this iconic South Florida chef, this one is a top pick for setting, service, and a palatable price point.
