    Was greeted by a under dressed hostess that told me it would be 10 minutes or so and would I like to instead sit at the bar. I have been going here since the restaurant was on Broadview Road. We know the original owner and I am sure he would have been disappointed with this hostess. No apology, just sat us in the bar and was happy to be done with us. Why dress up to go out and then be offered to sit at the bar with 2 games on.

    We had friends visiting from out of town. We wanted to take them somewhere close so we could come back to our house for after dinner drinks on our patio. We dine at D'Agnese's at least 6 times per year and alway remark how good the food is here. The dishes with their signiture D'Agnese sauce makes their shrimp, chicken, veal or steak items different from any other restaurant in Cleveland. My favorite dish here is the veal Sorentino. Their menu only shows chicken Sorentino now but they will gladly make it with veal. Another tip is ask for their diablo marinara sauce on your pasta side dish is you like spicy food.

    The service was great, the food was mouth-watering! The tapenade and flavored butter that came with the bread was an excellent start to a fabulous meal! We ordered the stuffed peppers as an appetizer and if I could have I would have licked the plate clean! For my entree I ordered the Chicken Saltimbocca which was absolutely phenomenal, and definitely big enough to share! My boyfriend ordered a seafood pasta dish which looked extravagantly decadent but was under par compared with the rest of our experience. We split the raspberry creme brulee for dessert which honestly was one of the best I've ever tasted. I highly recommend D'Agnese's for anyone looking for a romantic date night or special occasion meal. The prices were very reasonable too!

    Great food and service. We were especially impressed with the service. My wife is gluten free which I mentioned when I made the online reservation. When the waiter first met us he asked which one of us was gluten free. He was not only very knowledgeable about gluten but offered that they could prepare a special dish my wife really wanted so it would be gluten free. He did this without even consulting with the chef. Most waiters/waitresses don't even know what gluten is. We had a very enjoyable evening for my wife's birthday. We will return!

    My husband and I dined here Friday evening and were very pleased with the "Lenten" selections. My husband had the Zuppa di Pesci and was wowed by the abundance of seafood/fish in the pasta dish. He said it was the best he had ever had. I had the mushroom ravioli and it was delicious! Our service was a little slow - first time that has ever happened - but overall our dining experience at D'Agnese's was once again excellent!

    This was my first time at this restaurant since they moved some time ago and I was using a gift card; there was some confusion regarding charging the balance of my bill to a 2nd gift card as my waiter had a French accent and we were not understanding each other...but he was courteous and patient (even though I'm sure he was frustrated with me)...and when I asked to speak to the manager, he was also most accommodating and explained the situation. My issue was resolved satisfactorily. This is a true test of customer service; resolving an issue with finesse and grace!!!

    D'agnese's is one of our 'regulars' and last Friday it was exceptionally good. Our res was promptly honored as was our request for seating preference. We got our favorite waiter, Steve, who remembered our drink preferences and tastes. the kitchen was very accommodating to a special request (due to dietary restrictions). Though it was prime time, our food came piping hot, and my Chilean seabass (a special that night) was PERFECTLY done--golden crisp on the corners and tender moist on the inside. Everyone enjoyed both our customary and special meals. This is a solid go-to with reliable food and knowledgeable, pleasant staff.

    The food here is always delicious! We had excellent service as well. I was a little disappointed when we were directed to a table in the bar area because there was live music (keyboard and bass player) and it was a little loud to talk to the rest of the people at our table. Other than that, it was a good experience. This restaurant is very consistent in excellent food and quality service.

    We've eaten at D'Agnese's many, many times and never been disappointed - until now. The service is fantastic. The food was delivered very quickly; our appetizers were great. The entrees, however, were disappointing. I ordered soup, Figoli, which was extremely hot, very thin broth, not a lot of beans and quite bleh tasting. My husband ordered a special, veal and chicken medallions with sausages and peppers/onion. The sausage was overcooked and dry and the peppers/onions were under-done. All in all, I'd rate this as less than a stellar performance at a restaurant that has exceeded my expectations in the past. I will chalk it up to an off night and will try D'Agnese's again.

    While the restaurant has a great look inside, the food wasn't great. The pesto sauce must have had dried basil instead of fresh. Also some of the mushroom raviolis were cold inside as if they were frozen instead of fresh. I expected much of the food to be truly homemade and fresh, but I don't think that's the case.
