Angelis on Decatur is a stylish and hip Italian restaurant that is also casual and comfortable. The food was very good even if it wasn't the traditional Cajun and Creole that most people think of when describing New Orleans cuisine. I would highly recommend the mystical pizza accompanied by the Greek salad. The pizza was good enough that we went back a few days later for a past midnight, pizza snack. Like much of the French Quarter, Angelis is open til past 3a.m. The restaurant is decorated in an artsy combination of angels painted on the walls and a variety of disco balls hanging from the ceiling giving the restaurant a dark but sparsely chic look. The service was a bit slow due to the fact that the woman serving us was a bit overworked with too many tables than one person should have to handle. She, however, made up for it by being extremely nice and helpful despite being somewhat harried. Her authentic Italian accent was a delightful, lilting contrast to the smooth and easy southern accent heard in most parts of New Orleans. Angelis is a restaurant we plan on returning to on our next visit to the French Quarter.
