Pearl Cafe

Reviewed By Dawn M - Saint Louis, Missouri, United States

We have been here previously but it's been a while. Does not disappoint. Peaceful, clean and charming interior. Great menu variety. We ordered fresh spring rolls and they were just what I wanted!! I ordered stir fried glassy noodles with chicken (at other restaurants this would be called Pad Woon Seen) which was flavorful, plentiful and I love that they flgrill the veggies and meat which gives it a bit of a smokey accent. My spouse ordered the drunken noodles and this was a colorful, flavorful and plentiful dish as well. Jasmine tea to drink. All in all we got exactly what we were after including spot on service.

I keep going back for more. The beef dogs are the best I have had. I deliberately drive out of my way to pass this place and if it is around lunchtime, I stop. Nuff said.

We go there for their weekday 11-2 Buffett. They have pizza, salad, pasta, chili,dessert, and oh yeah wings too! It's all delicious. I especially like the pasta sauce. It's sweet and has a unique flavor that only good Italian restaurants can boast. Try this and you will come back for sure. This isn't high priced but it is great. It's classy and good.

Cannoli's Restaurant

Reviewed By Teresita_Herndon_VA - Arlington Heights, Illinois

This is an unexpectedly large neighborhood restaurant in a strip mall, with an extensive menu and reasonable prices. Don't look for high-end wines here, but what they have are serviceable and fairly priced. Their biggest attraction is their bread service - each diner gets a personal-sized loaf in a little paper bag, and it's quite tasty. Pizzas and pastas are your safest bets here. The wait staff may be spread a little thin at times but are a hard-working group. One big downside last time I was there - their bathrooms were not working. Nothing was flushing and the stench didn't really do much for our appetites!

Angelo's Pizzeria

Reviewed By JMCSTL - Saint Louis, Missouri

Angelo's Pizza is a very small shop in Black Jack, MO (eastern edge of Florissant), within a mile of my house. It has been in the same location for many years, and long-time regulars are always happy to tell me its product & service have not changed. My wife & I have eaten in a couple of times and had a couple of carry-out dinners, most recently this past weekend. It definitely caters to neighborhood clientele, and the owners or family members are always on-site. Service is always friendly & efficient, whether for phone orders or table service.

I'm not a big fan of St. Louis-style pizza (thin crust with Provel cheese), but I make an exception with Angelo's. Their Provel mixture doesn't have that coat-your-mouth attribute that turns me off with Imo's pizza, their dough is made fresh, and their toppings are usually generous. Pizza prices are competitive with Imo's menu prices, and their "small" salads are huge and simple but tasty. Their primary business is carry-out, but they do have 6 to 8 small tables in the small dining space. The kitchen size matches the dining area, so wait times for pizza (carry-out or dine-in) can be excessive. But if you know that in advance, I believe you & your family will enjoy your meals.
