    We had 6 people dining at AGIO for the first time Saturday night….the venue was attractive but once we sat we noticed the restaurant temperature was warm, uncomfortable. The waitress was competent but over worked. (There were no martini glasses at the bar so cocktails were served in rocks glasses). The biggest disappointment was the food - veal saltimbocca was salty; fish was bland; chicken parmigiana was sour. Clearly, the restaurant has a following as it was crowded but our experience was mediocre at best.

    The sauce on my pasta was burned, tasted like they used the very last spoonfuls from the bottom of the pot. Very disappointing as this is/was a favorite spot. Three of the dishes had this sauce and they were all almost inedible. However the carrot cake was outstanding! Waiter was pleasant but invisible. I had to ask for our bill 3 times.

    Large party of 11. Gene was great and the food was very good. Limited salad dressing options. Lemonade more Italian style verses classic. Not a lot of beer options on tap. No changing table for baby in either bathroom even though the Handicap stall was big enough for one.

    The calamari was horrible. It was like hard rubber bands. Server did not come back to check on us. We ate them because we were starving. When the bread was dropped off, we asked for balsamic vinegar and hot giardinara, which never arrived, and again the server never checked on us until the entrées arrived. Everything else was fine.

    We arrived early for a reservation and the host was able to accommodate our table outside. We sat at the bar and had a drink waiting for our friends. It was very nice. Bartenders were friendly. We were seated outside in the corner of the tent and were able to enjoy a lovely dinner. Our waiter was overloaded with larger tables and unfortunately wasn’t really able to accommodate us in a timely fashion but again we didn’t mind because we were busy having cocktails and visiting with our friends. When we did receive our dinner… It was fantastic. But the waiter was not frazzled and was lovely. We were very happy. Food was fantastic !!! Thank you for a lovely evening at our new found restaurant.

    I know people comment that the service is always good but we did not have that experience. Our server took forever to bring us our drinks, sugar for iced tea, butter etc. After we asked for our check, it took him 30 minutes to bring it. My husband asked why it took so long and he said it’s because we wanted separate checks from my son/daughter-in-law. 🙄 Food was good but seriously nothing great. We were supposed to go their for my husbands 60th but left feeling meh about the restaurant. We’ll look for someplace else to try.

    Great food, our server Rose was fantastic! Highly recommend. Great location and easy to find. It was a little loud when we first got there (we had 8pm reservations) but died down as it got later and less people. We ordered caprese salad for an appetizer, everything was fresh and had good, thick slices of fresh mozzarella and tomato. I ordered the chicken marsala, and it was fantastic. Very tender chicken, and a wonderfully flavored sauce. Instead of penne marinara on the side, I ordered the penne with the white wine garlic sauce and it was AMAZING. It has a lot of garlic in it, so if you are not keen on garlic, I would not suggest it. The flavor of that sauce is phenomenal. My boyfriend ordered chicken fettucine alfredo. He said it was very tasty. The sauce was perfect.

    Pluses:Pretty good food,and cocktails.They gave complimentary gelato for our birthday people.Rose our server was outstanding! Cons:Very small salads with tiny amount of goat cheese. They should play Italian music to match the Italian bistro theme.

    If the plates cost as much as they do, you’d think they would take away the CC convince fee on a bill that was over 190$.

    We've been here several times and have always enjoyed the food and service. Last night was a perfect night to eat outside on the patio and I would highly recommend it for this kind of weather. The food was good as usual. Our waitress Paige was friendly, informative and attentive. I highly recommend Agio Bistro!

    Went for a special reserved brunch seating on Mother's Day. No one greeted us for several minutes before eventually being seated. Disorganized traffic pattern for a buffet. Frequently out of plates and food items. For an Italian restaurant, not impressed by the pasta, meat and dessert offerings at a not inexpensive price. Server was excellent refilling our mimosas. Note the 4% surcharge if paying with plastic!
