Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas
Serving Tuscan fare in a sleek, contemporary setting with locations in Weston, Ft. Lauderdale, Coral Springs, Delray Beach, and its newest in Doral, the chic Italian eatery features a menu that is both rustic and refined. The expansive menu leads with a selection of innovative tapas like Fried Zucchini Flowers and a Burrata wrapped in Parma prosciutto served on a bed of arugula and drizzled with fig balsamic. Chef Angelo’s secret is to use ingredients that work harmoniously and bring out the best flavors in one another.
Hailing from Salerno, Italy, Chef Angelo Elia, owner of Angelo Elia Pizza Bar Tapas is one of South Florida’s most beloved chefs. His passion for “the old country” inspires him to create menus of traditional Tuscan dishes, using the finest ingredients to make virtually everything from scratch. A visionary and restauranteur, Chef Elia’s creed is to always put the customer first and deliver the best possible quality in both food and service – it has paid off in spades.
Pies For All
The well-rounded menu is a true reflection of the many flavors of Italian cuisine. Wood-fired pizza offerings range from the classics, like the Margherita to colorful pies topped with prosciutto, arugula and Bufala mozzarella. Distinguished entrees include pasta favorites like the Linguine Vongole and a hearty Veal Milanese. In Chef Elia’s philosophy, ingredients should not overpower each other, but instead create a harmonious flavor profile.
