Nice outdoor seating, with very attendant waiters and waitresses. Food came out quickly and was still the correct quality for its value. Only criticism would be that indoor seating was seemingly limited.

We always feel 'safe' when dining at Agios. They do an excellent job of social distancing their tables and staff. In spite of the hard times that restaurants are experiencing, the food at Agios is just a delicious as it always has been. And eating on their patio, whether open or closed is always a treat! I heartily recommend the grilled salmon on top of risotto and a fabulous white sauce.

We always enjoy dining at Agio’s whether it is a special occasion or a date night. Authentic Italian cuisine & it never disappoints. Seafood stuffed pumpkin is a seasonal favorite and we also had the braised lamb shank that was cooked so perfectly it fell off the bone. The dessert trio is also one of our favorites and last night featured a pumpkin creme brûlée, chocolate mousse, and a mini cannoli. Take out or dine in you won’t be disappointed. Quality, consistency, great food, and great service.

We love Agio and fully understand the current C19 situation. I’m a frequent customer. Our lunch wasn’t our usual great service and quality as the past. Out bread was delivered burned, the salad had little to no goat cheese and our server (who I’ve had many times before) wasn’t quite able to get the bread replaced quickly, etc. I also realize he may have been the only staff there at that time. I will return and know things will go a bit smoothers.

Why is an Italian restaurant playing Rock we had to ask our server to turn it down. Just wasn't appropriate for a nice restaurant like this--why not Italian music?

I have never been to this restaurant before. The food and service were absolutely excellent and the ambiance was perfect. Our waiter was very helpful. I am sure that I will be going back in the near future to try some of the dishes that were on the menu.

Agio was a great choice for a cool rainy Saturday night. One of the members in the party had the pan seared grouper special and really enjoyed. The other members in our party had Chicken Parmesan that was excellent and the Flounder that was on the menu and was also delicious. Rose, our server, was wonderful!

The only thing I would change was the background music like Motown greatest hits - which did not really match the ambiance of the restaurant.

The food, chianti, and service were amazing. I am gluten-free and they were able to accommodate me with GF noodles. The decor is almost as if you were in the City. Our server was also handling a big party for a celebration. He was so kind as to let us know that the kitchen just took the big party's order so our food might take a bit of time to get to us. We ordered apps and our dinner came out in a timely fashion after we were done with apps. Will be back.

We are never disappointed with the food or the service at Agio. It is a local place that is great for every day dining, a romantic dinner for two, dinner with friends, or for a celebration. They also have great daily specials that are often hard to pass up. I highly recommend a trip to Agio even during COVID-19. They are doing everything they can to ensure the health and safety of their diners and recently installed panels to separate the booths and people sitting at the bar. While the weather is nice, their outdoor patio is also an option.

Possibly the best Italian spot I have been to outside the City. Their patio is so quaint and adorable. The inside is gorgeous and looks newly renovated. The staff is amazing and our Server and quite frankly the entire service team was amazing. Quick, efficient, knowledgeable, and friendly! You will have life long customers out of us and we will be spreading the word! We came to have a date on what was supposed to be our wedding night(postponed due to Covid) you guys made it special.
