Pizzeria L’Angolo

(4105 Main Street)
Guido Abbate is no stranger to the neighborhood. He has worked on and off at local Manayunk restaurants for the last 25 years and now, he has finally opened his very own pizza spot in late May.
Pizzeria L’Angolo, which literally translates to “The Corner Pizzeria” in Italian, is located at the corner of Main Street and Shurs Lane and offers a well-crafted menu and a beautiful open courtyard for al fresco dining.
As a longtime chef, Guido and his team focus on using the best ingredients available to craft their menu items, like the traditional and “Nonna” style pizzas, salads, and signature sandwiches like the “L’angolo Sandwich”, which is a chicken cutlet sandwich served with mozzarella, long hot peppers, broccoli rabe, and shaved sharp provolone. Guido loves the mixture of people in Manayunk and has gained a large number of regulars in his first year of business.
“I always wanted to open a pizza place in Manayunk, but I never took a step forward,” Guido said. “I was away from Manayunk for about eight years roughly and I said to myself, ‘It’s time to go back.’ That’s why we opened L’Angolo.”
