Foodie Files: Angelo's Taverna
I'll call this an "oldie but goodie" food review because I've visited Angelo's Taverna once before and loved it so much, I needed to revisit.
Branded as Denver's original pizza and oyster bar, Angelo's Taverna on E. 6th Ave. is a gorgeous Italian restaurant located in a bustling part of town. The restaurant is quite large, including a bar area; however, both times I've been, it is SUPER crowded. Please expect a wait, but it's worth it.
I squeezed at the end of the bar to get settled. It was within happy hour time which meant super duper affordable drinks and oysters. Game on!
I order one of their house Chardonnay's and the Fancy Italian Salad. Loaded with garbanzo beans, salami, provolone, olives, pepperoncini, and red wine vinegar dressing—this salad packs on a ton of flavors and textures. Also, it was super filling! I will likely order this every time.
Now for the oysters! Freshly shucked right at the bar.
I ordered a half dozen—3 original charbroiled and 3 of the Buffalo-style daily special. Perfection! The regular charbroiled taste just like the ones I've had in New Orleans and the Buffalo-style provided the spice of some hot wings. The oysters were plump, juicy, and fresh.
Another wonderful trip to Angelo's. Their happy hour has to be one of the best deals in Denver and their charbroiled oysters are to die for. It's a must-see restaurant for a night with friends/family or a date night. Can't wait to try some of their pasta dishes!
