I like breakfast food, but my boyfriend does not. This was the perfect fit for our delimma. He could order from the lunch menu while I dined from the breakfast buffet. He got the fettuccine Alfredo, which I thought was excellent (of course I snuck a bite.) I grazed on waffles, fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, and whatnot. All of the staff were very nice and courteous. I felt like it was the perfect date place. We were seated away from the families with potentially noisey children and the table was very cozy.

Convenient and good!
I made a lunch reservation because I was part of a large group attending a conference at the Convention Center. My group of 4 arrived a few minutes early and were seated within a few minutes. We had the option to order off the menu or select the lunch buffet. Two of us ordered off the menu and two of us opted for the buffet. Food came out quickly and was very good. I had the minestrone soup and the Italian Shrimp & Grits. I liked the shrimp & grits but the presentation (bowl) made it difficult to handle the shrimp (to cut off the tail to eat). I had to have Tiramisu for dessert and it was fabulous. The atmosphere was relaxing despite the lunch rush. I would definitely dine here again when coming to Augusta.

Average Hotel Dining Experience
Went to Augustino's to celebrate a family birthday. Have been there before and decided to give it a try again. The food was prepared well with steaks coming out as ordered. That said, the quality of beef used appeared to be "choice" at best and little natural flavor. The Martini salad was very nice presentation and has a great taste. The wild mushroom risotto was below average.
The wine list was very limited and considerably smaller than I remember.
The service was superb, attentive and friendly.

We have been dining at this restaurant for a couple of years but this was the first time with the "new" menu. We loved the Portobello Mushroom appetizer, the Martini Salad, and the flourless chocolate torte. My grilled salmon was also very nice and my spouse enjoyed his pasta. The service was great. We wish the restaurant had more booths for two instead of the less comfortable half booths and a bit more ambiance--dimmer lights and music at night.

Great place for a quiet dinner
We have dined at Augustino's many times. The food is good even if the entrees are a bit expensive. Everything is a la carte and wine by the glass is really high. We love the portobella mushroom appetizer, the martini salad, the salmon, and the pasta. This place could use a bit more ambiance but it isn't bad. Make a reservation. Park by Morris Museum across the traffic circle.

I took out a couple visiting from out of town and they were really impressed. They said that Augustino's was as good as the best dining experiences they have had anywhere. Great food and wonderful service.

This was the first time my wife and I tried Augustino's. We were both well pleased with the polite, prompt service and the fine food.
The food was well prepared and presented. Our server kept the dinner experience moving at a comfortable pace, removing dishes, filling glasses, serving food; we didn't feel rushed nor did we have to wait. Pleasant and relaxed dining.
I had the "Shrimp and Italian Grits". A very pleasant twist to a southern staple - shrimp and grits.
The "Lobster and Artichoke Fonduto" was very good as an appetizer.
We dined around 5:30 in the early evening.

Great for business or casual lunch when downtown in Augusta. Parking (validated) was very convenient.

Great Food, wonderful night
Our group loved the private room which gave us the privacy to talk about business. The dinners and service were wonderful and the desserts were yummy. We booked through Open Table and are so happy we did. We will go back when we return to Augusta.

Great Pasta Bar!
We were in town for the half Ironman and pleasantly surprised by the pasta bar...perfect for the athletes! Our service was excellent. I had the lasagna off the menu and it was a large, delicious portion. Staff was extremely friendly...would definitely go back!
