Ablaze in festive lights, brimming with panache, and surrounded with vintage photos and memorabilia, with just one step through the door you'll have no doubt that you have entered a wonderful eclectic Italian ristorante. Bigger than life, Angelo's and Vinci's Ristorante, is set in the hidden gem of the city of Fullerton, that wondrously has been able to retain the beat of the 1950's.The old building where the ristorante is now housed, has a treasured history of being an old marketplace in the early 1900's, where local farmers brought their produce in from the fields by horse and wagon.
Angelo's and Vinci's was originally opened in 1971 by husband and wife team, Cynthia and Steven Peck (who was a Hollywood dancer and choreographer). After Steven passed 11 years ago, the personable and charming Cynthia took over the ristorante. The perfect hands-on hostess, she walks around her huge establishment, making sure all her guests are satisfied and well taken care of.
