In St. George on a consulting job and two clients recommended Aragosta so my wife and I gave them a try. OMG, I wish I had found them sooner because this is the best restaurant we found in our eight week visit to the area. The chef/owner is a world class chef who produces excellent food and served on beautifully decorated plates. Wine selections are moderately priced and great values. The total experience was so good we made reservations for the following weekend and can't wait.

Chef is very friendly AND Chef is very talented! What he serves is of the up most quality second only to his preparation and presentation. And a massive shout out to Brady, along with a fine meal, he serves up a nice ration of fun.

Loved our first time at Aragosta to celebrate our anniversary...on New Years Eve. Food was fantastic! Service equally good. Don’t let the hole-in-the-wall location scare you away! You won’t be disappointed.

Wonderful food and very nice wine list. This was a special 70th birthday dinner for my wife and Chef Imi was out front to welcome our party of six. Our evening could not have been any better. We have known the chef since his days in Silver Reef and have always had great service and amazing food. We will be back.

This was our 2nd visit to Aragosta and once again we had a wonderful meal. We like the small and intimate dining room as it's normally very quiet. Our food (fresh red snapper and beef filet with shrimp, both with an array of fresh vegetables) was perfectly cooked and excellent. The bread was warm and toasted and the mixed green salad was large and had some unusual (good!) ingredients along with fresh shaved parmesan cheese. We will be back.

By chance, met at door by chef and owner, Chef Kun. The restaurant itself is warm and cozy; by no mistake of Chef Kun I’m sure.
The lobster was the best I have ever tasted from anywhere over the globe. From presentation, to accompanying vegetables — by far a most experienced Chef.
Being new to the area, will not miss an opportunity to return to try other dishes.

Best restaurant in St George area. Food is exquisite. We had a Thanksgiving Dinner to be truly thankful for. Best mashed sweet potatoes we had ever had in our long lives. Desert, made by Chef was a cake I’d never had before: pumpkin and apple. We have eaten here several times and it is Always a great experience. Don’t let the exterior in a modest shopping strip fool you... this is first class dining.

3 of us ate here while celebrating a birthday. We each ordered different meals, salads, and soups and each of us raved about our choices. Chef Imi came out and greeted us and again afterwards to make sure everything okay with us. Food and service were both excellent and I will definitely return. Highly recommend.

Great food, we had sea bass and scallops. The calamari appetizer was delicious, best lobster bisque and French onion soup. Our waitress was helpful and prompt and fun, service was excellent. The chef was friendly and gave great suggestions.

St George has one and only European cuisine restaurant. The name is Aragosta. Chef Imi delivers excellent service , food and ambiance from a small romantic setting. If you travel and enjoy gourmet dishes from Europe you will your evening at Aragosta . Absolutely everything is delicious.
Enjoy!!!

Aragosta is simply the finest restaurant in Southern Utah. It is one of the best restaurants I have eaten in anywhere in the world. I feel like I am a guest in a friend's home when I go there. The food is so good, you want to lick your plate.

Yes, the prices are a little high but not much more than other "fine" restaurants that are not nearly as good. I have recommended Aragosta to several friends. None have been disappointed.

If you haven't been to Aragosta, you owe it to yourself to go.

This is world class food! Chef Imi knows his stuff! The Staff and presentation is excellent! Excellent wine list & beers compliment the exquisite food. I recommend the Caramel Pudding Cake (phenomenal!!!) for dessert. This small and unassuming restaurant is a gem for St. George..A+++

We arrived a little early for our reservation and the table was not ready so when we were seated a few minutes late, the chef presented a wonderful complementary appetizer. Overall, the food was outstanding and the service more than outstanding. From the outside, one would never guess. You must check it out but be sure to make a reservation as the space is very small. By the way, I have never before offered a recommendation one way or the other but this restaurant is outstanding.

You don't expect to find a fine restaurant in Ivins Utah. But this is it. The food was outstanding. The service was friendly, personal and efficient. It is almost enough reason to travel to Ivins just for dinner from Salt Lake City.

We celebrated our 53rd anniversary at Aragosto last Monday evening. We enjoyed every moment we were there. The food was scrumptious and Chef even prepared a lovely dessert for us for our celebration. We will ofcourse return again to enjoy the salmon and filet mignon Boston! Thank you Chef Emi and server Brady for everything!

Surprising spot. Don’t let the gas station/strip center scare you. The food is very good, the wine list is nicely curated and the chef is gracious, as is his staff. There are only a few tables and service is not fast, so don’t expect a quick bite...but it is definitely worth your time

Wonderful restaurant on way to Tuachan Amphitheater. It is in an unusual location, but don’t let it deter you, the food and service was fabulous! The bread was fresh, the staff attentive and knowledgeable. We stared with calamari (their dipping sauce was great!) followed by a lemon palate cleanser. Then large scallops with pasta, and shrimp with risotto. Next time will try the Hungarian dishes! Open 5-9. I recommend reservations, only 8 tables.

Small storefront restaurant. Our service was outstanding. I ordered the duck legs, which are no longer on the menu and the chef came out and said he would be able to find some for me. Yum! The scallops were done to perfection as well as the shrimp with the truffle risotto. Next time we are back in St. George, this will be on the to-do list.

This was our first time. This place is what a good restaurant should be, quant (only about 12 tables) cloth napkins & table cloth, all staff makes sure you are appreciated and welcome. There is a chef and the staff call him that. There is a personal touch on all dishes. Food was great!
