    Dined on 11/15/2014
    The restaurant has a nice modern feel and good lighting. We were un-impressed with the food for the pricing. 15-20 dollars for a standard meal that was not as good as what you can make at home with purchased sauce. There are better Italian places in the area for your money.

    I had a fantastic seafood linguine and toasted ravioli. My fiancé had the lasagna which was a little sweet for both our tastes but still very good. Our glasses were always full. Our waiter was very nice to us but was gossipping with the table next to us and was inappropriate with them which was obnoxious and our only complaint.

    The only complaint was that the wine was warm. Not room temp warm, but around 77 to 80 degrees like it was stored above the stove in the kitchen. That was disappointing. The wine list and half off bottle deal was great, but the warm wine wasn't.

    The food was good - not outstanding - just good. The waiter liked to hover over us. It was clear that with a near empty restaurant that he wanted us in and out since we didn't purchase wine or a dessert. Personally, I think this place is great to pick up food and go because I don't really feel welcome to stay and enjoy. And for the future, that is what I will do - order take out.

    Outdoor dining is really nice with all the foliage surrounding you. With the street so close it just makes it feel more private. Had a wonderful server for lunch who was very accommodating and the food was scrumptious - although the pistaschio pesto was a bit bland, but the server recommended some diablo sauce on the side which completely changed the flavor of the gnocchi! Will definitely return.

    I have been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time, but I don't live close so I had to wait, and it was well worth it. I had the Pasta Carbonara and it was fabulous. The lunch portion fed me for three days. I've have had carbonara all over the country, as it's my fave, and I have to say this is the one I'm craving to go back to. Service was great, warm bread fabulous! I was to full for cheesecake, but I'm definitely going back! Yum!

    I know there is no promise that individual requests with the Open Table booking will be honored, but I don't think they even read them here. The space is beautiful and the food is good. Service and bar cocktails were exceptional! We had a romantic outside dinner planned but were seated inside next to a huge party celebrating a family event. It was distracting but the visit was still worth it. The manager/owner thanked us as we left, a very nice gesture.

    What a beautiful restaurant. Our table was ready when we arrived, our waiter was at the table serving water as we were sitting down. The food was outstanding, fresh and served timly. Jeremy did a great job keeping up with the needs of our group. Do not leave without having a slice of cheesecake... THE BEST!

    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.

    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!

    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.
