  • "Love the food! Excellent service! We were there for a special celebration lunch and our waiter Brian made it memorable."

  • "Service is on spot! I had a delightful chicken wrap and my husband had chicken piccata. Both are so delicious! Perfectly cooked and seasoned so nicely. You don't want to stop eating! We will return many times with these outstanding features continuing every time with have chosen this establishment!"

  • "I reunited with friend I havent seen for 15 years because this restaurant was centerally located. I picked off of reviews and web page. I was very pleasantly surprised. The food was awesome and a great selection. The server was great. We sat for almost 2.5 hours to talk. Never felt rushed or hurried. My only complaint was I reserved a month in advance and my table was right at door opening. Other than that it was fabulous."

  • "We had eaten at D'Agnese's at White Pond approximately 10 times previously, and generally had a positive experience. I had noticed the last 2 times that the service was not quite what it had been. Our experience this time was definitely not what we were expecting. It took us 45 minutes to get our drinks and order our dinner. The waiter was very abrupt and appeared to prefer not to answer our questions. My dinner was ok, as was 1 other dinner--both being pizzas. The other two, shrimp specials, were tasteless and bland. It was a very disappointing experience. The restaurant was extremely noisy and we could hardly hear each other."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Patio is very pleasant. Not a lot to look at since it's a plaza but the restaurant has a nice ambience overall. Waiter was friendly and very attentive to filling our drinks without being intrusive. We just had appetizers. Margarita pizza was light but nothing extraordinary. Risotto balls over marinara were good. The tall drinks were served in the thin glass... Which isn't really any more liquid. On a summer day, I'd prefer a bigger glass so I don't need to continually reorder a refill. Overall a nice place and we will return. The dinner menu has many things I would like to try."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "Food and service are always good here. A local spot away from the mall but near the expressway with a nice patio. If only the pond were in view! Pleasant interior. All the meat dishes are good, but the eggplant parmesan is the best I've had."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Our food was excellent. We ordered the family style special. We got to sample three dishes ( all very good) and there was still some left to take home. Service was attentive but not hovering. We would return and will recommend it to friends."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "We had an outstanding experience. They called to check on the reservation. We were seated immediately. The waitress was outstanding and the food excellent. It was a great evening with friends while visiting Akron."

  • "Sat on patio. Very good soup and reasonably priced."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "We are rather picky when it comes to food, and we have found that our favorite restaurant is our own kitchen. There aren't many restaurants in the area that are "must visits" for us. In the past, we had frequented the Bistro several times and were sad when it closed. We thought we'd give D'Agnese's a try, and we were pleasantly surprised. Nice atmosphere, outdoor dining (although the noise from the expressway would be a spoiler), service was outstanding, food was great."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "I think (hope) our waitress was new. First we didn't have set ups, then she got the drink order wrong and she failed to bring us ice after asking a few times. I had to ask the hostess for the set ups when we had food before we had utensils. My husband ordered a Manhattan and got watered down Tito's vodka (he had asked for that particular brand and I think she got that instead--ice must have melted before she picked it up from the bar). We go to this restaurant often and this is the first time we have had such poor service."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Everything is very good including easy to get to, easy to park, quiet location and great food."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "D'Agnese's is a fantastic place to go for an upper scale meal with many options for great food and drink. We have been there many times and always had a great meal with great service. Unfortunately, this night was an exception on service. Our waiter was inatentive almost to the point of avoiding us. When he did come to the table, he kept saying the kitchen was out of bread and he would bring the next fresh batch. We saw other tables in our section being brought it, but ours arrived an hour after we sat down, with our meal. The waiter came to our section multiple times but never even looked our way. Needless to say, we were very disappointed. the food, when it did arrive, was fantastic as usual."

  • "Actually been coming here for quite some time. Love this place. The food is always fresh and simple, it doesn't take a million ingredients, herbs and spices to make a great dish. The Salmon Scapriccata is my favorite and although this item is only on the dinner menu, they have always been happy to make this dish for me at lunch. On a side note, if you want bread definitely ask for it as soon as your seated, for some reason I almost always receive my soup or salad before they are able to get bread from the kitchen, how long could bread possibly take? Oh, and ask for Brian as your server, he's the best, it's obvious he's developed sincere relationships with the clientele, definitely a great asset to D'Agnese's! Will be back next week."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We have dined here several times. The food has always come out fresh and hot. At times service can be a bit rushed, as it was this time. Moreover, our server never said "excuse me", or otherwise acknowledged that she was leaning all the way across the table in front of us to place food. All of a sudden, there she was. We were not in a booth either so access to other diners at the table would not have been a problem. VERY disconcerting and intrusive. Maybe this was an isolated occurrence, so we shall see if it happens again the next time we go back. And we do plan to go back."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We came for an early Sunday dinner and thoroughly enjoyed our food. Our party ordered the artichoke appetizer, salads, and two veal dishes: veal piccata and veal saltimbocca. The service was good, although there were a couple of minor gaffes. We would definitely go here again when we're down on the north side of Akron."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • " The food is always great and they have a very nice wine selection."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "One of our favorite local spots that never disappoints. The buffalo calamari is a staple every time we dine at D'Agnese. You'll also want to try the wedding soup and roasted beet salad. This visit we opted for the specials of the day. The swordfish was prepared piccata style and was outstanding! The veal with potatoes and broccoli had good flavor but was a bit over cooked. The service was perfect! My only complaint is the noise level but that does not stop us from returning."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "Artichoke appetizer was the best. The other items we had were very good, vegi pizza and veal parm."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "My husband and I dine here pretty regularly. We like the menu as there is sufficient variation but not too many choices. All of the items are delicious--never had a dish that I would not order again. The scallops were fantastic served over risotto. My husband loves the salmon, which is always cooked perfectly. Wait staff are always friendly, helpful and anticipate our needs. the patio is great for dining."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "D'Agnese's is one of my favorite restaurants. Service is always good, ambiance is nice and comfortable, and most importantly food is great! I love the Veal D'Agnese and risotto. My dinner salad was great. Plenty of food so I did not get a dessert this time. Highly recommended from a foodie."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "D'Agnese's is always a great place to dine. The food is always consistently delicious and perfectly prepared."
    Dined on 7/7/2014
  • "We have not been disappointed yet! The chicken Piccata was splendid. Service was on spot! We will decidedly enjoy another lunch here in the future."

  • "Great time----great food ! Met there with some friends that we hadn't seen in a long time, and everyone enjoyed themselves."
    Dined on 7/1/2014
  • "Our family met at D'Agnese's from Canfield, Cleveland, and Cincinnati to celebrate my birthday. Everyone agreed that we would all go back in a heartbeat! Not only was the food great, but Nick, the bartender, & Cristen, our waitress were wonderful. Favorite appetizer was sausage stuffed peppers, but all of the appetizers were delicious! We all ordered something different and everyone loved their meal!!!! This was our first visit & it definitely won't be our last!!!"
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "My husband and I were looking for somewhere new to go and we came across D'Agnese's. A GREAT find indeed! Loved the whole experience and it was a treat to go to the bar side after dinner for some nice music. We will be back!!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We went there for our 26th wedding anniversary thinking it would be special. Not only do they not acknowledge special occasions but the waitress made a curt comment that they could "stick a candle" in the dessert if we wanted. Needless to say, we didn't have dessert there. Some of the food was interesting -- including the buffalo calamari appetizer and beet salad. However, my wife's scallops were too heavy and swimming in a big puddle of butter sauce, while my linguini with clam sauce also was drowned in sauce and a bit small for the price ($19; with no salad included). Our first visit there -- not sure whether we'll go back. We like their place in Hudson much better."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The steak salad was awesome. Three of us ordered it and the steak was prepared perfectly for each according to requested doneness. It was so tender! The dressing was great too - not too acidic. The bread with garlic balsamic dip was also a highlight. Service was quite good."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "Food is consistently excellent. Waiter very attentive and made great recommendations. "

  • "We had a wonderful anniversary dinner at D'Agnese's on Sunday evening. Our food was delicious and the service was attentive. We have made this restaurant our place to celebrate birthdays, our anniversary, and Valentine's day. "

  • "Outstanding food & great service. Enough said. I would highly recommend this restaurant. Second time I have been and it was exceptional both times. "

  • "In a total rut with this restaurant can't get past the veal D"Agnese never disappoints"
    Dined on 5/28/2014
  • "I have been following the D'Agnese restaurant group for years, and they consistently have the best marinara sauce in the world! Also the D'Agnese lemon butter sauce is to die for! All locations are always hopping, and the food and over all experience are wonderful! We also order food from D'Agnese for our parish staff dinners, and everyone raves!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "This was our third visit to D'Agnese's. It's a real keeper. Had the Chicken Scarparella. It came out hot, fresh, done just right. The side of linguini could have been changed to capellini, which I prefer, but I forgot to request it. The accompanying marinara tasted fresh (i.e. non-metallic). Our chef-son accompanied us, really enjoyed it. Pronounced it first class."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "We frequent this restaurant for work lunches, and this time we had a group of ten to celebrate a coworker's birthday. It's one of the restaurants that everyone can agree on, even the picky ones who turn their noses up at chain restaurants (me). Love the food and serves well for a special occasion for a reasonable price. "

  • "I reserved a table for 18 on Mother's Day (not for Mother's Day but a graduation party) and we had a fantastic time! They were actually able to accommodate us a little early, took their time with our orders and never made us feel rushed. The food was amazing and the service was top notch! We will definitely be back."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "I made a reservation for Mother's day, D'Agnese's was highly recommended by friends at work. My meal was delicious and those I dined with also thought their meals were delicious. Our waiter was very attentive! I hope to dine there again soon."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Our Mother's Day lunch was wonderful. The selections were outstanding, entrees, drinks and desserts. All of us had a wonderful meal and the service was outstanding. We sat near the window overlooking the patio, there was a table set for a large party. We agreed that sitting on the patio would be wonderful, next time."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "We went on Mother's Day, it was our first visit. The food was good, nothing outstanding. Our waitress was very nice and attentive. They had several dishes that I thought sounded good, but they ALL had goat cheese. They needed to be more varied in their cheese selection. My husband and I both ended up getting pasta dishes that were good, but not memorable enough to remember exactly which ones we had. My mother in law got the steak salad and she really liked it. It was probably the best of the bunch. We tried D'Agnese because of all the positive reviews but I was not that impressed. We will most likely give it one more try and hopefully have some better entrees. I did try the wild mushroom soup and it was actually very good."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "The food was very good, have been here a couple of times and have never been disappointed. It is a little pricey so do not make this a regular visit. We come here for special or important get togethers. "
