    Due to our busy schedules, our early dinner was 3pm - so we were the only patrons in the dining room. Food was delicious, server was attentive and the prices were reasonable. We ordered salads with our pasta dishes - everything was fresh and the temperature it was supposed to be. Cheesecake was fabulous! Very nice afternoon.

    Our server was so bad that other servers were apologizing for him! We waited a half hour for our entree after salads were finished. After complaining to management earlier in the meal, he got aggressive and even more condescending. When we finally got our food, all we wanted was out. The food was wonderful. I've been before with great service.

    Had our anniversary dinner. The food was pretty good but nothing special. I don't know if the place was just off that night or what. We will try it again to make sure the "just ok" food and service were the exception since our first visit months ago was perfect.

    The food was very good and priced like I thought it would be. The wine was over priced. The service started out okay but then went down hill fast. When we decided to limit our drinks because of the high price it seemed like the waiter did not want to check on our table anymore. The waiter and hostess did not seem to know alot about the menue or the restaurant. I was disappointed in the service and wine but the food is very good.

    I frequent Accurso's on a regular basis and must say that this is an excellent restaurant for any occassion. The food is wonderful and they do a good job of rotating in special menus every once in a while. There is a nice outdoor patio, a good sized bar area, and two separate dining areas at Accurso's. I highly recommend dining at Accurso's.

    The Kansas City Metro is not exactly replete with good Italian Restaurants. Accurso's is moderately priced and is one of the best of the group. The pasta and other items are always well prepared and the service is always courteous and very good. The restaurant is nice and located in a nice area. If you are looking for a good Italian meal this is a fine choice.

    Just so happens that there was a retirement party tonight, had we known, we probably would have rescheduled. we were seated right next to the room where the party was going on, very loud and boisterous. The food was great though, as usual. The mushroom appetizer was even better than I remember, gone like that! Food was fantastic and our server went out of his way to assist. We'll try again!

  • causal...VERY casual
    Ollie
    Dined on 5/10/2014
    The food was amazing. The restaurant is apparently a lot more casual than I was led to believe, the people in tanks tops, cutoffs and flip flops were unexpected after being told it was a dress casual establishment. There is a HUGE parking lot behind the place that is reserved for the restaurant and the few shops in the building with it, but the lot was locked off so nobody could get in. We drove around for a half hour trying to secure on street parking while this lot sat empty. The service was awesome, and everyone there was friendly. The prices were right for the food. I would go back, but would definitely not sweat my clothing choice next time. Not exactly the romantic, fancy evening I was led to believe it would be.

    Accurso's is constantly good everytime. It took a little time for service when we initially got to the restaurant cause we sat on the patio. It's first come first serve. Outside of a little wait the service was good. I got the same server I've had before. Accurso's has the same staff I've seen for over two years that I have gone there. There breaded Mushrooms are the best and the sauce that comes on that dish is the best! The Italian steak platter is excellent. For desert the cheese cake is the best in town!!

    My wife and I decided to try out Accursos new menu after seeing it on facebook, we loved it! She being a vegetarian had this pasta dish with cauliflower and currants in it while I had grouper with risotto both were amazing! The wine list is outstanding and we impressed by some interesting "craft" cocktails (had a tequila drink with some really weird and delicious foam on it). Can't wait to go back!

    This restaurant was overwhelmed with the large group of Prom customers. We had reservations but when we arrived there was confusion as to where to seat us, party of 2. Many tables were open so ocbiously they were understaffed.They advertise gluten free pasta but all their sauces contain gluten except one. There is not a dedicated GF menu, the server had only one suggestion for GF option & it was a dried out chicken breast w grilled veggies. Had to ask for everything, fresh Parmesan cheese for the salad, extra dressing.

    We had heard a lot about Accurso's and were really excited to dine here. Nothing was bad, but nothing was excellent or was good enough to make us want to go back. It wasn't a bad experience, just mediocre. And with so many other restaurant options, we don't think we would choose to return.

    The food was very well prepared and very good. I was caught by surprise though. I found this place online and decided that Italian would be great for a date night on Valentine's Day. It turned out that they were only doing a set menu for $100 a couple. The price wasn't bad for the amount of food we got. I was just caught by surprise because I didn't see this advertised anywhere and was expecting a more traditional restaurant experienc with more choices. My only other complaint would be that an Italian restaurant didn't have a singel pasta on the special menu. I was looking to have a good authentic pasta and ended up having a mashed potatoes and asparagus. My meal was very good, but not what I expected.

    I dined here for Valentine's Day so my experience was certainly not a normal situation as there was a fixed menu and a very full house. Regardless, our server was very attentive and friendly and most everything we ordered was very good -- the one outlier was the risotto stuffed eggplant rolls which might as well have just been white rice stuffed eggplant rolls. Our other starters, soups, salads and entrees were all great. And the cheesecake was fantastic as expected.

    We went on Valentine's Day. We weren't expecting the pre-planned four-course menu, but there were plenty of options for each course, and my dinner was great. We did not see the regular menu, and I wish we'd asked to see it for future reference. Our service was great, and we'll definitely go back.

    This was a first visit Accurso's selected to share a romantic Valentine's dinner. Not being a "foodie" I was completely overwhelmed by the aroma, textures, and above all, flavors of the food served. I confess calling it "food" here seems to sell it short as each course was more of a separate work of art. I can only imagine where I would be today if I had experienced food of this caliber years ago. Well done Accurso's team. In the words of my lovely bride, "It was a home run.".
