Had a gilt coupon . There
Had a gilt coupon . There was so much food (and excellent) that we ended up taking half of it home for the next day. We requested the patio and loved the atmosphere, but it was way too noisy. It was very hard for us to talk.

Service at its best
What more could you ask for!

Service gets the gold star
The service was outstanding-- our waiters watched our table like hawks, knowing just when to refill a glass or remove a plate. The special veal osso buco was incredible. The veal milanese was the real mccoy. The only disappointing thing were the desserts-- we had a sampler of cannoli, cheesecake and profiterole and none were particularly good.

Superb food, great service
We went with a coupon, and there was some confusion as to exactly what that entailed. No matter; management got their heads together and just kept bringing marvelous food to the table! Pizza with truffles, superb, fish ravioli to die for, mushroom risotto excellent. Followed by a platter of chicken and more fish. We had to take half home for the next day!

We were a Group of thirteen on a schedule to see the "Sister Act". Got there early and were seated with drinks brought quickly on the patio. A variety of different dishes were ordered and received quickly. All the ladies commented how great their dishes tasted from the fish deboned at the table, the warm seafood salad and especially the pastas. Our server was professional and fun. This was not my first time at Ago but I wanted to share what a great job they did with our big group.
7/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food portion could be bigger
I never get full eating their food. Everything should be larger except for their steak which is in decent size. Interestingly, every time I go to this place, our server is an international student from Italy and "a friend with the owner". I wonder what's that about?

Great Food, Lackluster Service
We really enjoyed our appetizers, entrees and desserts. The food was very tasty, fresh, well prepared with complex, pleasing flavors. Portions were good. Nice menu albeit a bit pricey. There is a difference between a very good restaurant and a great restaurant and Ago has the potential to be great...Here's what's missing...
Martini glasses were 85% full. Would be nice to get a full pour at those prices.
Service was lackluster for an upscale fine dining restaurant. There are professional servers who make you feel welcome and appreciate that they are there to provide an experience; and there are food deliverers -- sadly, ours was the latter.

A very satisfied customer
Great customer service. Waiters were constantly making sure that we were content with our visit. Food was great!
8/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
You should go there!
Great food. We loved the beat salad (got it twice!!) the burata. The bass was great and the spinach ravioli were all amazing.
You should go!
8/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as usual.
2nd time at Ago and once again very pleased by the food, the warmness the staff shows. Will come back again.
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Service is outstanding
I have been to Ago's a few times from the date of opening. The food, atmosphere & service were outstanding. The service remains to be a huge factor in returning just for a quick bite. However, the food was not impressive, I'm sorry to say, as it used to be. It's great for large groups but not for a dinner out with your partner.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM

Great service . The menu has a wonderful selection of Italian dishes. Will return.

Wonderful evening, the food was outstanding and the service was first rate>
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a charming Italian restaurant. It reminded me of a great little place I ate at in Rome. We tried the meatball appetizer and there are no words to adequately describe those little balls of heaven. The 3 of us each tried a different entree and they were all delicious. From the filet mignon to the ravioli to the veal.
We had a wonderful evening. Great food, great service!
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing food / Mediocre food
This was the best Italian restaurant I have been to in some time. The pasta was fresh and homemade, the lamb ragu was amazing. The veal raviolis were equally tasty. The service was a bit mediocre but, the food outweighed that in this case.
9/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time I've tried out Ago and wow,...what a great spot. I highly recommend this joint for lunch or dinner. Great service, great food and plenty of celebrity's and Hollywood power players to people watch.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
Still has it going on!
What a pleasant surprise that Ago still has it goin' on! Food was great, so was ambience! It's an oldie but a goodie!
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Best Italian dinner we've
Best Italian dinner we've ever had. We were on holidays for 3 weeks and spent two fantastic "dinner nights" at ago! It was delicious. The waiters were very attend and very friendly. We will definitely come back to this awesome place!

ago is everything an adult
ago is everything an adult with an appreciation for fine food and old fashioned service can expect in this town. it was an excellent experience from the moment we arrived til we left. they still care after all these years.

The best restaurant experience
The staff is amazing always and the good never ever disappoints. Everything is so fresh and delish. I would recommend this place to anyone. The food is consistent and is always so delicious. I love the ambiance and atmosphere this restaurant has. I will always go there whenever I want Italian or good food in general. Thank you ago
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food depends on what you order.
Breaded veal chop was like cardboard, but whole fish filleted at table was delicious as well as anti pasta platter.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent as Usual
The quality of the food continues to impress. Keep it up.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love Ago
I love everything about Ago from the food to the ambiance to the service. My favorites are the peach martini and the paparadelle pasta
9/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely food, charming service
We loved having early dinner on the spacious,relaxing patio. The food was excellent. Although it is overpriced (like Mozza overpriced) - we expected that, and at least they don't offer "attitude" with your dinner. To the contrary our waiter was so fabulous and knowledgable, he really was the best part. However, their seafood risotto is just perfect - like Italy!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
great bread, great food - linguini and clams and Caesar salad were both xlnt
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Simply perfect evening! Benissimo! Thank you, Walter!

Very nice place. Not crowded
Very nice place. Not crowded at all on Sunday night. We got good attention from the waiter. The menu is a bit pricy, but all items of food were very good. Salad good, whitefish good, lamb ragout with tube pasta good. We had a very nice time. We sat inside, but it seemed that the patio area was also very nice.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious but over priced
The food at Ago was delicious and fortunately we had a 30% off deal from Blackboard which made it good value. The food is very tasty, portions are good, but the menu is overpriced by 30%. Please give me another coupon and I'll go back. Otherwise it's too pricey.
10/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Elegant outdoor dinner
We will be going back to this elegant Italian restaurant . The food is fabulous, the peach martini is the best I've ever had, and the ambience is fun and beautiful, and the service is excellent. We were impressed.

Una superba esperienza culinaria!
It's hard to compete with Italy when it comes to food and fashion, but Ago manages to achieve the former par excellence. At its busiest moment's, the restaurant noise can out-decibel the sound system's energetic playlist and you might find yourself leaning in toward the person across the table to hear what they are saying. Fortunately they'll most likely be raving about the entrée they're enjoying, which in this case, were the langoustine risotto (evening's special) and the traditional spaghetti with meatballs. Both starches were cooked perfectly al dente and the complex sauces were as delicious as any we've enjoyed in Italy. Service was professional yet friendly. Ago is now on my top-five LA restaurant list.

Always great to go back to
Always great to go back to Ago. The food and service are always excellent

We are from Massachusetts but made a special point to go to Ago on our recent trip to LA for a family wedding. The Osso Buco special was awesome and our daughters love the red sauce.
10/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the best Italian food we have had since getting back from 2 weeks in Italy in May.
10/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful veal chop
The 3 of us had the veal chop and loved it; thank you!
10/23/2013 5:00:00 PM
With BBE in hand we hit AGO on a Friday night. A lot of positives here. They treat you like family! I'm not a big star but, no wait for my table at 8PM on a busy night. The waiter was like my favorite Italian uncle. He was fun, octopus salads arrived in good time. FABULOUS. A bit of a wait for the rest but it was all first rate, veal loin with porcinis, perfectly cooked, whitefish, fresh and not over salted, risotto, a classic. More invention would get five stars but it was very good. The only problem is the wine list. If money is no object, it's fine but to see wine that retails for under $15 prices above $50 is a little insulting.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
My husband and I were visiting from New York for the weekend and took our college son to dinner. We wanted really delicious fresh Italian food with a vibrant atmosphere. Ago did not disappoint. The wine list was extensive. Our server and sommelier were knowledgable and each made recommendations that were right on. Highlights were the white asparagus wrapped in prosciutto with shaved truffles, a perfectly grilled octopus salad and the best Dover sole I've eaten. Also quite delicious was the cinghali ragu over pappardelle. We will definitely return on our next trip back.

Had a lovely dinner at Ago,
Had a lovely dinner at Ago, first time we have been here. Enjoyed the serves and his menu suggestions. Husband and I had an enjoyable and relaxing meal. We started off with an octopus antipasti (suggested by the server) which was fantastic. Could have eaten more of that but we shared it My husband had the dover sole (special) , wow so delicious and I had the pappardelle pasta and it was very tasty. We ended up with the dessert combo (profiterole, cannoli, tiramisu) to share, not as good as we had hoped. Tiramasu and profiterole were a little too wet and the cannoli was just okay. All and all the dinner was great. We definitely will eat here again.

Splendid Italian restaurant
We invited a special guest and came to this restaurant.
We were impressed by good "meal " & " service" and the employee of the restaurant as we imagined it.

Enjoyed the meal and service. It's a great place for conversation as it's not to loud.
11/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
They have plenty of incredible options, but I'm simple and love 1) A glass of Prosecco 2) Ceasar Salad 3) Spaghetti and Meatballs (insane) and 4) the Bannana Tart. Just go and check this spot out. Great!!!!!
