Angelina's Pizzeria Angelina's Pizzeria located in Irvine, CA is a dog-friendly restaurant. Your dog can join you on the outdoor patio. While Verace Pizza Napoletana is rooted in simplicity, Angelina's Pizzeria is rooted in quality. Sourcing only the most premium ingredients, each handcrafted pizza begins each morning by stretching and kneading the dough, then smothered in juicy imported San Marzano tomatoes, and finally topped with mozzarella from a cheesemonger in Napoli and locally sourced produce. This delicate process continues into the swelter of Angelina's 900-degree wood-burning ovens. However, Angelina's offers much more than pizza they serve soup, salad, appetizers, pasta, desserts, and cocktails. Try their Ravioli Mimosa with house-made ravioli stuffed with fresh ricotta cheese and spinach, sauteed with baked ham in San Marzaon DOP Pomodoro sauce and cream or the Tagliata Di Manzo prime flat iron steak roasted n the pizza oven then sliced and served over roasted potatoes and vegetables.
