My ongoing search for local Jewish foodies and proprietors brought me to Woodbury, chain restaurant heaven, where Angelina’s Kitchen has been cooking up Italian classics since July of 2006. Owner Angela Verrastro was born in the Bronx, spending Sundays at her Italian Grandmother’s house eating delicious meals like lasagna and manicotti. These are the foods of her youth, brought to the Midwest in her capable hands.
They don’t taste like restaurant food — by design. Angela describes her offerings as “home cooked, quality food at reasonable, affordable prices.” Or, like their tagline says, it’s “take out you can feel good about.”
