The only negative is the service, which is terrible, despite being quite friendly. Since this is not really a place to go when you're in a rush, the slow service almost makes it better, because it gives a good excuse to kill a bottle of wine and chat with friends for hours, or as long as it takes.
Caveat: This is not a place for fussy diners. The relaxed New Orleans attitude permeates the atmosphere completely, and you must be prepared to chill and enjoy the moment in order to enjoy Angeli's. That being said, many great times are to be had at this fabulous little joint, and the food is beyond wonderful. Besides, who comes to New Orleans to hurry?

Café Angeli was our home base on our two New Orleans visit. This place serves great Italian breakfast bread roles with lots of lettuce. And they can cook a great pasta too!
The atmosphere is really mellow, since most of the customers are locals. It is right across the market on the north riverside of the French Quarter. In the evening you can catch some great jazz bands or jam sessions. The people that work there are really helpful and can give you tips where to stay or what store to visit. it is one of the only places that stay open until 4 o'clock, where you can get a guiness or a nice snack before you hit your hotel bed!
