Diner Reviews
  • "The restaurant was moderately busy but our waiter was slow especially for drinks service. My cocktail finally arrived just before the dessert (ugh)."

  • "This was our first time eating at Agrodolce and we will definately be back. The food was wonderful and service was excellent. We are anxious to try many other items listed on the menu so can't wait to come back."

  • "My friend and I there for Restaurant Week and had a wonderful meal. Everything was so fresh and delicious and the portions were just the right size. We did think the wine by the glass was overpriced however. $14 seemed a bit much. The space is small and open so when a party of four came in and sat next to us, our evening was over for all intents and purposes. We had not seen each other in a while and had been having a quiet catch-up conversation and enjoying our meal. The party next to us were talking in what I call Seahawks-are-winning stadium voices. My friend and I could not hear each other from that point forward and asked for our check. Still, I would recommend this restaurant for the quality of the food and the service."

  • "It was in the right neighborhood for Wednesday night, the dinner was lovely. the food was excellent as was the service. There was a living tree with lights in the middle of the room which made it seem more intimate somehow. The drink I had was very nice, clean, refreshing and just a hint of sweetness. We both enjoyed our dinner and will be back."

  • "I just tried Agrodolce for the first time and really loved it. A lot of Italian food is too heavy for me, especially since I eat mostly vegetarian and usually want something with a lot of vegetables (and not a starchy pasta with thick sauce). Everything at Agrodolce was fresh, and my homemade pasta dish was brimming with amazing, tasty veggies in a light sauce that relied on fresh herbs for flavor, not oil or cream. It was fantastic. Our server was extremely friendly and helpful and really made the evening a delight. Also they had quite an interesting and creative house cocktail menu. We will be back-- Agrodolce became an instant favorite for us."

  • "12 of us went for the restaurant week menu. We ordered different things and from what I have heard, everyone enjoyed their food. The services is EXCEPTIONAL. We have 3 people saving our table at various times, and they were all courteous, caring, and efficient."

  • "I enjoyed eating here! My boyfriend and I chose Agrodolce for a double date and everyone loved it. The food was good and bottomless mimosas were offered (though with a $15 price tag)."

  • "Special 4-course menu for Valentine's Day Dinner. With organic ingredients, all 4 courses were skillfully prepared and were all delicious! Servers were super busy and sometimes started walking away without finishing their introduction to each dish, but it is understandable for a crazy busy night like this. All in all, I very much enjoyed it."

  • "I had an amazing dinner for my birthday last year at Tilth. I had expected the same qualfity and amazing time at Agrodolce, but was disappointed. It was very loud and it was hard to hear the servers and each other. Some of the food was fantastic like the sunchoke ravioli and the Theo's chocolate cake, but the rest was unremarkable. None of us cared for our main courses, they lacked flavor. For what our bill came to it was sad that the food and the service wasn't better."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "They recommended a really good Italian wine that was reasonably priced which is always nice. Great service and food with it's own unique Italian dishes. We will be back."

  • "Four of us dined here on a Saturday night, and I will never eat here again, nor will I ever recommend this place to anyone. The servers pool their tips, so be prepared for really bad service. While the food was decent, the prices are way too high for the amount of food, and be prepared to wait a long time for everything. I worked in the service industry for ten years, so it's not like I don't sympathize with the line of work they're in. We sat with dirty dishes all over our table for 15 minutes, and when I politely asked the bus person to remove them, she said someone will come by to get them (even though her hands were empty and she could have easily picked them up) Bad service can completely ruin a restaurant that does serve good food."

  • "We went out for a celebration dinner on a Monday night. The room was silent and cold, especially against the windows, so everyone kept their coats on. We waited more than a half-hour for our food (a long wait, since we didn't order drinks). The waiter told us the broccoli side was "the best thing on the menu." He was right. Everything else was not nice. A steak ordered medium came purple rare and stone cold, as was the plate; we had to wait another 20 minutes for them to fix it. Lamb burgers were bland with puffy buns; rabbit pasta had maybe 1 tablespoon of rabbit. One of the coffees was lukewarm, triggering another long wait. The chocolate cake was tiny and dense like a candy bar and panna cotta was bland, with bitter grapefruit topping."

  • "Since it is in our neighborhood we eat here occasionally and it is always excellent! The food is fresh, perfectly seasoned, prepared and presented."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "For the price and quality of food Agrodolce is an excellent choice. it is also a pleasant atmosphere, very relaxed, light and airy. I appreciated that many dishes can be ordered gluten-free. For a place to enjoy a leisurely lunch, this is it!"

  • "AND bottomless mimosas :) I loved the pan fried egg, it was one of the best individual breakfast items I've had."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "I guess after our experience at Agrodolce we couldn't understand the mixed reviews. Our service staff was attentive, informative and made us feel very comfortable. All the food was superb and the wines we ordered complimented our meal perfectly. We will highly recommend Agrodolce in the future...................Many thanks!"

  • "Love, love, love this place!! Came here for my birthday brunch where they easily accommodated all 17 of us. They never rushed us, food was perfect and you can't beat bottomless mimosas!!"
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "First, I am still ticked off that Agrodolce sets the table with a bread plate but doesn't supply the bread unless you order it and pay for it. Reminds me of nickel and dimes for baggage fees and food charges on airplanes. This restaurant should give the diner a first class experience including bread. Second, our dinner was ruined by two people at the table next to us who practically yelled their conversation back and forth throughout our seating. It was as though they were in a production factory or talking over ear phones. Sorry, after six or so tries I don't think we'll be going back."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "As always, the food at Agrodolce was wonderful. The service was attentive without being intrusive. I will be going back again."

  • "We dined here for our valentine's day celebration (though a day prior to valentine's day). We've been to both Tilth and Golden Beetle and really enjoy Maria Hines's restaurants and had been wanting to try Agrodolce since it opened. I had the vegetarian tasting menu and my husband the regular tasting menu. Overall, the food was delicious and the service was wonderful! The vegetarian tasting menu went well together with the burrata salad and sunchokes ravioli being my favorite two. I wasn't a huge fan of the dessert, but mostly because I don't really enjoy lemon sorbet. My husband enjoyed his tasting menu, however, felt the dishes were not cohesive, so felt like he was tasting 4 different dishes rather than a meal."

  • "My wife and I love this restaurant. The food and service are great. Excellent, flavorful food including great pasta and vegetables that are more than an afterthought. We'd recommend it to anyone."

  • "The chef continues to impress with a great neighrhood gem. Try it and you will agree."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant for the food (and because it is a Maria Hines restaurant) and were not disappointed. Everything we ordered from the kale salad to the cinnamon sorbet was delicious and the portions were perfect for a luncheon...not too big but filling."
    Dined on 2/12/2014
  • "I wondered about all the reviews being so mixed, but after eating here, I understand. Food was good, but the service was inattentive."

  • "So, I don't write many reviews. I tend to write only when they are very very bad, or very very good… Agrodolce is VERY VERY GOOD! My husband and I like to try a new restaurant every time we go out; since we don't go out every week, and there are always new restaurants popping up, this has been an easy task. There are only a few that we would say, "we HAVE to come back!", and Agrodolce is one of those! Part of the reason is, that I wanted to order every entree on the menu - they all looked and sounded that good! We went with another couple and all of us left saying we'll be back. The private area "curtained off" for about 8 is what we will reserve the next time we go…then hopefully, we'll get to sample everything! Delish!!!"
    Dined on 1/25/2014
  • "I have always enjoyed my meals here, service is wonderful-polite not a place to dine if you are rushed! They noticed on one of our visits that a diner was not eating her meal, when pressed she admitted it wasn't "quite right" they went out of their way to make it right for her-very impressive!"
    Dined on 9/29/2013
  • "Met a friend and we really enjoyed our lunch. Great service , beautiful window seats with natural light. Food was terrific. Def. will return soon. We enjoyed the roasted carrot soup, delish. And the broccoli salad, yum. Wished we had time to sample the drink menu, looked great. Next time !"

  • "The food was amazing but I would never recommend this restaurant. The service is so bad it ruins the experience."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "Previous experiences have been excellent. Unfortunately this time our waiter was short with us and quite rude. To top it off he left for the evening without letting us know that he was gone and forgot to present the bill. Our food was very inconsistent. We hope this is not a trend for this great spot."
    Dined on 1/17/2014
  • "The food here is creative and delicious. The menu has a nice variety with vegan and gluten free options. This does not make up for the high price point, considering the noise level, random an incohesive decor, and inattentive service. We had a reservation but still had to wait 10 minutes after our reservation time to even be acknowledged. I do not think they have a host/hostess. Our waitress was friendly but slow. We had to wait quite a while for everything. The open layout and high ceilings made for a lot of noise. There is a tree in the middle of the dining room that seemed incongruous with the marionettes hanging from the ceiling and bright paintings on the wall. It was not a fine dining experience at fine dining prices."
    Dined on 1/16/2014
  • "Agrodolce offered delicious, beautifully plated food at reasonable prices. It's on par with some of the other fantastic restaurants in town, but very comfortable and a better value. We had a birthday and they took great care of us."

  • "Agrodulce is a terrific, stylish restaurant half a block away from the center of Fremont. Its specialty is Sicilian and Southern Italian dishes, and they are done very well. We came back a third time for a prix fixe New Year's Eve dinner. The pasta and rice dishes were excellent, but the portions are very small, especially of any meat or seafood ingredients. The wine list is both good and unusual, but wines by the glass are overpriced. All in all, a very good meal in a pleasant room."
    Dined on 12/31/2013
  • "The food was very good. Not outstanding, but fresh ingredients, well-prepared, nicely presented. Great wine list.The service was very attentive. However, as a 1st generation Italian-American I was hoping for a "taste of home" but didn't get it. TRUE Southern Italian fare consists of simple but fresh ingredients, minimally prepared, with very few spices, allowing flavors to surface uninterrupted. Also, Southern Italian menus feature lots of fish and seafood, and while these were offered, the menu didn't feature them. I'm not sure where in Southern Italy Ms. Hines picked up her regional cooking skills, but it certainly wasn't the parts where my family are from from (Campania and Puglia, my wife's are from Sicily). Not going back..."

  • "We were visiting family from out of town and wanted to take them out for lunch. Since we didn't know the area at all we once again relied on Open Table and the reviews. This place is just lovely! The lunch menu is diverse and whether you are a carnivore or vegan or any other food devotion, you can find something here. We each had something different and everyone was thrilled with their decision. Portions are large enough for my boyfriend. Had a very nice wine as well. The capstone of the meal was the cinnamon gelato with biscotti for dessert. Wow! Would definitely return if we get the chance...but this time it will be for dinner!!"
