Just in time for the weekend -- I've got a must try brunch (and dinner) place to share. When I used to a live a little further north on Pine Grove, I discovered an awesome Italian restaurant, Angelina.
It's since become one of my go to places for bringing family (Sister and Pops are both big fans) for dinner. The food is unbeatable and will leave you happily full. It's a cozy spot that would be great for a date too. And, because who doesn't love a good deal? They offer a prix fixe meal on Tuesday nights and 25% off your bill on Wednesday for neighborhood (Lakeview) residents. Love it. Oh and the prix fixe deal? Tried that once with my Pops, so good, but you need to come hungry. Something that is unfortunately, never a problem for me. $27 each and you get to pick any 3 courses off the menu. Appetizer, main and dessert, no small portions or limited menu baloney.

Alright, now you know the dinner is delicious. But the best part? Brunch! On Saturday and Sundays Angelina offers a $20 unlimited champagne brunch. Get the bellini, yum! Or excuse me, should I say get many bellinis (hello, unlimited) and clear your schedule for the rest of the day. You are going to want to sip and eat and sip some more... And its not just the drinks that are worthwhile, they deliver on the food too. The Tuscany Frittata will not let you down.
