Welcome to Angelina Italian Bistro – Detroit

Angelina Italian Bistro  is steeped in the traditions of Italy, yet with a refreshingly modern attitude. Our moderately priced menu of entrées and appetizers is inspired by the from-scratch cooking genius of our Sicilian grandmothers… Grace and Angelina! Hand crafted fresh pasta, house butchered fish and meats, fresh mozzarella, house smoked fish and meats, pickled vegetables and desserts are some of the items we prepare daily. Angelina’s dining room is enclosed in floor to ceiling windows that wrap around our 100 seat dining area and overlooks Grand Circus Park, the Detroit Opera House and Comerica Park and right down the street from the Fox Theatre and Music Hall. Our full bar seats 35 and highlights Detroit’s own Motor City Brewing Works beers and other Detroit breweries. A large selection of wines from around the world,  including several from Michigan and 20 glass pour options compliment your dining experience. Free internet access. Established 2008.


Angelina will be closing for good at 7pm on Sunday 12/10

DETROIT – Oct. 2, 2017 – After a successful decade’s run on Broadway Street in the heart of Grand Circus Park, Angelina Italian Bistro will serve its last customer on Dec. 10, 2017. The decision to close the restaurant was made after a favorable agreement was reached between Angelina’s and their landlord.

The restaurant’s prime location in the Madison Building in downtown’s Detroit booming theatre and sporting district made Angelina Italian Bistro a desired dining spot before and after events and shows. The loyal customer base was uniquely comprised of loyal neighborhood patrons as well as regulars from the suburbs, tourists and Detroit business visitors. Future plans to relocate are not determined at this time, but co-owner Agosta is considering possible collaborations with other Detroit restaurants which share their vision to serve a diverse customer base with from-scratch food at reasonable prices.

“We owe our success to our dedicated customers who supported and patronized Angelina Italian Bistro in times when it was not easy to operate a restaurant Downtown, they are who we took into consideration when we did our due diligence surveying alternate options and locations,” said Agosta. “Downtown Detroit is changing rapidly and after taking a close look at the market, we’ve decided to revisit our plans for the future.”

Upon its closing, Angelina Italian Bistro Detroit will donate a portion of its kitchen equipment and supplies to Central United Methodist Church. They are building a kitchen to use as an incubator and training space in the food service industry for potential businesses, low income vets and the homeless.

“We thank and appreciate our amazing customers and staff as they have allowed us to follow our passion for exceptional food and service,” said Agosta. “While we are closing a significant chapter, we look forward to beginning a new one in the near future.”

Customers with active gift certificates are encouraged to redeem them between now and Dec. 10, 2017.

Our Location In case you haven’t been here before, Angelina’s is right across the street from the Southwest corner of Comerica Park… underneath the Whale painting on the Broderick Tower, right across the street from the Detroit Opera House and just down the street from the Fox Theater, the Filmore Detroit and Music Hall. When taking the People Mover, (which is easy access to and from Cobo Hall and Joe Louis Arena) exit Grand Circus Park, walk across Woodward and we will be on your right just before Broadway. See map below.

 View Larger MapParking Information Angelina Italian Bistro uses Extreme Valet for our valet service. If you are dining with us, you may valet your car for $10 on non-event nights** and pick it up after your show. Perfect for the Fox Theatre, Gem, Comerica Park, Ford Field or any event at the Detroit Opera House as we are directly across the street! Metered street parking may be available… it is $1/hour but monitored until 10pm so you may need to feed it… meter parking is free on Sundays. Most meters near us are 2 hour but some a few blocks away are only 1 hour.  As of June 1, 2014, the city has raised the fine from $10 to $45 for meter violations… be very careful if you are using the parking meters! Or you may get the mobile app here to monitor your meter time from your smart phone http://www.detroitmi.gov/How-Do-I/MobileApps

** Since all cars are parked in the Opera House parking structure, valet price is determined by the Opera House and will increase when the Opera House raises prices for special events. Extreme Valet regular pricing is $10 and is usually never more than the Opera House self park price on event nights… still a good bargain.

***Angelina’s does not receive ANY proceeds from valet services.
