Very Quaint and Excellent Food!
Our first visit did not disappoint! We all loved our food! The blackened pork chops and cheesy bread sticks were amazing! Our son ordered the cheesy penne pasta and it was great too! WE all loved our dishes! It was very busy and the waitresses were working hard to accommodate everyone in the place too! We will be back! The pizza looked amazing and we will be trying it too! Also, you might call ahead for a reservation just to be safe especially during the holiday too! Very reasonably priced too!

My wife, Kids, and I stopped here yesterday on our road trip for Thanksgiving. To put it simply the food was amazing. We've had "real Italian" in a few other places in Iowa that sadly weren't. This place was the real deal. Everything we ordered was amazing. My children had spaghetti and meatballs, My wife order a pizza that was terrific. I had a meatball sub. We all enjoyed our food. The service was terrific too. We have even contemplated a drive back through Keokuk just to stop at Angelini's again!!!

This is our second time we visit during geode fest. Friendly staff and good menu selection. Hubby got the pasta bologense and I got fettuccine Alfredo which were both amazing. I also recommend the house salad dressing and The bruschetta. Only thing I wish they had is an open bar.

Third Time, Still a Charm
My family was in town to attend Motocross races in Kahoka for the weekend and when in Keokuk we always make it a point to stop in Angelini's. The atmosphere is inviting for a date night and also accommodating for families. We were able to get seated easily on a Saturday night even without a reservation and once again our food was phenomenal. My kids enjoyed their spaghetti while my Drunken Shimp Pasta was perfect. Service was good as usual. We'll always be sure to stop here when in town, kind of a hidden gem in small town Iowa.

Went for lunch after a 60 mile bike ride so very hungry. Great welcome and service matched by excellent toasted cheese and ham sandwich. Good value, great place.

Excellent Food and a Great Value
We took a group of students here after visiting Nauvoo, IL. They were uniformly impressed and just LOVED the food! The service was fast and correct- even with a large group. The food was absolutely mouth-watering. It was a great evening!

Hosted a Christmas Party for Lake Cooper Investment Club
Beginning at 6 PM we were ushered most warmly to our party location which was a customer dining area. the dining area provided ample space and the server for our party was totally at our disposal and had no tasks except the best accommodations for our group.
We were quickly offered and served our choice of drinks from our open bar. An hors d' oeuvre consisting of shrimp cocktail was served along with a crisp green salad and a wide choice of salad toppings Since we were to be served a prime rib dinner I asked for a glass of cabernet sauvignon to be served with the entrée. This was done and the wine was exactly the proper temperature. This indicated a scrupulous attention to details and was much appreciated by this reviewer.
The meal was topped with a delicious dessert attractively plated. Our server literally flew as she single-handedly managed our group which numbered 18 to 20 men.
The entrée was of such a generous portion that virtually everyone requested container which was promptly and cheerfully provided. I, along with the rest of the party, left feeling very well served and vowing to return soon to this establishment.

Fresh Italian Cooking
Went here with another couple - at their suggestion. Food and service were very nice. I had salmon and wife has seafood au gratin. Mine was perfect, but her's was too cheesy for her taste. Service and drink selection was very nice. Would definitely go again and try other selections to get a broader sampling.

I have been to many a good Italian restaurants in my time including Little Italy in Chicago, however, this place gives them a run for their money! The creme de la creme was their seafood dish. Wow! The prices were extremely fair and their popularity is such that you better make a reservation. They were kind enough to find a table for us but we will know better next time. Oh, the pasta bar on the weekend is to die for! Make it happen, if you know where Keokuk, IA is...
