Left Unfulfilled by Colangelo’s

Colangelo's Bakery on Urbanspoon
Colangelo’s has good ingredients, but if you are ordering takeout, don’t count on getting what you ordered.  Now, I don’t say this out of haste.  I’ve had two consecutive food orders messed up!  If you’d followed my posts on the blog, you’ve seen that I tend to be a fan of pizzas.  Colangelo’s pizza has all of the right elements of a good pizza; I’d even go as far as to say that the pizza is good.  But as a consumer, getting the pizza the way you ordered it, should be considered when reviewing a good pizza.

Arriving to work today, I was craving a good slice of a white pizza.  The “white” part of my order apparently was lost on whoever took the order because I received a red pizza, again!    Sure, I’ll eat the pizza, but my craving will go unfulfilled.  Oh, and the so-called hot peppers, aren’t hot at all.

Next time I resort to ordering takeout, I guess I’ll just stick to the pasta dishes from Colangelo’s.

  1. I will have to disagree with you on this one guys. Give them another try. Their food is wonderful, service always congenial and i love the smell of the place. I have been going there since they opened and when it was "il picolo forno". They both learned a lot of the recipes from Antonio who is loved and missed by all who knew him.

  2. Susie, I have since had a good experience with the pasta dishes for lunch. I have yet to try the pizza again.

    Do you recommend that we dine-in?

  3. Suzie,
    Thanks for the post!
    I'm sure we will give it another try. It is highly approved by most. But we go by our most current experience.

  4. Dine in would be great. Pick a table on the sidewalk that they share with la prima espresso, order the lunch special and something sweet, grab a cafe and enjoy. It is a very European feel.

    We enjoy criticism and perform our jobs better because of it. We apologize for the multiple mistakes and we can assure you that these problems have been addressed and we will do our best to prevent them in the future. As with the problem with your pizza, we now have the staff ask red or white, regardless of toppings; this change in protocol is a direct result of your review here on urban spoon. I hope you come back so we can change your mind.

    Stay hungry!
