Find restaurants including Jumping Lomo offering authentic Peruvian dishes, Champs with hot chicken straight from Nashville, and Calavera Tacos with Tex-Mex street food.

Angelena’s Ristorante Italiano
The perfect date night awaits at Angelena’s! An extensive wine list, a romantic atmosphere, and classic Italian food make Angelena’s a Pensacola staple. One of our favorite ways to experience the menu is by ordering the pasta tasting menu. This menu comes with selections of pasta paired with a glass of wine. It doesn’t get much better than that!
The story behind Angelena’s pays tribute to the Giardina family. This family moved to Pensacola in the early 1880s and found success as local produce merchants. They helped pioneer the quality of food found throughout the area.

Carmen’s is an excellent choice for those looking to enjoy a casual lunch to refuel after a fishing charter, a morning of shopping, or a historical tour. Their motto is “Where good friends meet good food,” which hints at how their atmosphere is considered inviting.
You can’t go wrong with a single item on their menu. Find delicious soups, salads, sandwiches, and sides. They offer Gluten Free and Vegan menu options as well.
At night, Carmen’s transitions from a lunch bar to a Tapas restaurant! Make sure to visit during both times of the day to experience each menu.
