Angelo’s Bistro Bermuda $$, Italian
As the name suggests, it's more like a bistro or a cafe rather than a proper restaurant. The bistro is not easy to find but would be worth the effort. It's tucked in a mall (Walkers Arcade) and located off the Front Street in Hamilton and at a walking distance from the Hamilton ferry terminal.
The restaurant is owned and managed by Angelo Buglione, the person who once used to run the erstwhile well known restaurant Splendido
which closed down in 2011 because the hotel (Horizons & Cottages) where the restaurant was housed, had also closed down.
This restaurant is quite small. Other than inside dining, there is a small courtyard outside. Weather permitting, tables are a laid out in the courtyard (i.e. an outside patio) in a circular fashion around a fountain. You can choose to sit inside or outside. The inside dining is air-conditioned and the interior is lively having bright orange walls, tiled floor and wooden tables laid out in rows. The bar counter with tall wooden stools is tucked in one corner. The walls are full of paintings.
