Angelina’s Pizzeria Napoletana

8573 Irvine Center Dr.
Irvine, CA 92618


  • Daily, 7 a.m.-11 p.m.
  • Full bar
Angelina’s Pizzeria Napoletana is a pizzeria in Irvine. What distinguishes Angelina’s from other upscale pizzerias is that it’s unabashedly Italian. You won’t encounter a server who couldn’t be cast in a Fellini flick. Moreover, chef Sandro Nardone is from a town near Naples, and Chief Operating Officer Antonio Bevacqua, formerly of the Il Fornaio Group, is from Tuscany. But it’s when you look at the menu that you realize the place doesn’t aim to be just a pizzeria, but also restaurant that wants to give you a comprehensive Italian dining experience. The list is broken down to the proper categories of an Italian multi-course meal, beginning with antipasti, then a primi of pastas, followed by a secondi of meat courses served with potatoes.
