Was there for an anniversary dinner, and I was very pleased with my decision. The menu was was well put together and had options to please just about all appetites. I ordered a seafood pasta, and it could have used a bit more seafood for the money, but overall I thought the dish was very well put together and not overwhelmed by any one ingredient. We had a nice bottle of wine from the vast selection, and the waitress did a nice job of explaining the wine and gave her recommendation. My only complaint was there seemed to be a phone ringing that came over the speakers every so often and was quite strange, but not annoying by any means. I would certainly recommend D'Agnese's to a friend and will likely be back in the future.
A few reasons why we love going here....
They have the best marinara sauce in the city.
Their Lamb chop appetizer is so tasty and is enough for two.
The music in the lounge on a Saturday night is wonderful background music in the dining area. On this night there was a person who played the xylophone, the music was so relaxing to dine to.
As usual the food, service and experience were great. One of our favorite restaurants.
We have been here a few times and love it each time!!
Waitress didn’t review specials. Order was incorrect. Scallops undercooked. Too pricey,
D'Agnese's is a place you know will provide great food, friendly & attentive staff and wonderful wine. Large menu and wine cellar provide something for everyone. The décor is not striking but the general ambience is always one of people having a great night out. As you put it, a "neighborhood gem" that is "well worth the drive" if you are not a local.
D'Agnese's has been my favorite restaurant since the 90's. The Chicken D'Agnese was delicious as usual. I have my 3 year old grand daughter hooked on it! Never saw her eat so much chicken. She just loved it. Since you are so close to where I work, I have gotten Chicken D'Agnese to go many times. Every one of your employees were polite and helpful. D'Agnese's will continue to be my favorite. Wish you were open for lunch on Saturdays with the full menu. We would love to stop around noon after shopping. Thank you
This is one of my favorite restaurants- been going here for years. It was my birthday dinner- and even though we now live about 30 min away- I chose to go here with my family. The food was excellent, as always, but disappointed with the service. Our waiter was cocky and has an attitude. We asked for fresh pepper and totally forgot. Waited several minutes for the bill when we were done and treated us like he couldn’t be bothered. Very disappointing for a special occasion meal- the food will definitely bring me back, but direct feedback to the restaurant....please focus more attention on the service and value the overall dining experience!!
Great food and service! Accommodated request for a booth for a special occasion!
We had a great experience. The food, wine and service was great! We will be returning soon.
Excellent wine selection. Wonderful service. Thanks Anita.
Dinner was delicious! One of our favorite places to eat.
Always great food. Very relaxed atmosphere. Wonderful service.
Food and service was excellent. Fresh and delicious like always!
Excellent food, excellent waitress. Will be back!
This was our second visit to this restaurant. The food is outstanding. We had the "zuppe de pesce" (seafood soup) and the "calamari fra diavalo" (squid with pasta) -- and both were delicious, as was the crab-stuffed mushroom starter and the garlic butter. The place was packed at 6 pm on a Tuesday. Our only, slight complaint is that the dining room lighting was too low. We needed to use my cell phone flashlight to read the menu, and it was difficult to see what we were eating. Just turn up the lights a bit, and all was good.
Loved our waitress, Angela, she was prompt, efficient and funny. The food was fabulous.
Great food and service. We had the Chicken D’Agnese and the calamari appetizer.
The calamari and salmon were excellent. We dined at the bar and the service was excellent despite the fact that the bar and restaurant were very busy. The wine list was very reasonably priced with many selections by the glass.
I honestly wanted to visit this place for a long time. Once I came it was packed and I left. This time made reservation in advance for me ,husband and two friends. We came in on time the hostess didn't even smile, just took us to the table. Server was just ok when brought food didn't even come back to ask how was everything. Now food. We got spicy calamari for an appetizer, it tasted like rubber, for mail course we got chicken shrimp and veal combo , it tasted just ok . I won't be back for sure and won't recommend this place to anyone.
I have been to D'agneses twice and both meals were delicious, the Veal D'agnese the first time. Last week I had the sea bass which was out of this world. I did not want it blackened and wanted a vegetable instead of the pasta accompaniment and the restaurant was most accomodating. It is a half hour away but well worth the drive and an excellent meeting place since the other couple was coming from Medina.
Food was okay, I rather pay $8 extra for a better filet at a nicer restaurant, service could’ve been more on top of water and didn’t bring anything out for a special occasion
The food was delicious. There was so much food at food that three out of the four diners had to get a take home container.
One of our absolute favorites. Here a few times a month and never disappointed. Excellent food. Very open to special requests. Service is always great.
We went here for my birthday. The food was fantastic. We ordered baked goat cheese appetizer and fish entrees. The best meal I have had in a while. Our server was jovial and attentive, and she did great considering her entire section seemed full. My mom ordered two martinis and both were subpar, but that's not my problem. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone so long as they order wine instead of martinis.
I've been to D'Agnese five or six times and have never been disappointed. The food is always fresh, tasty, and served while still hot. The wine list is better than most. The server we had yesterday could not have been more accommodating! Highly recommend.
everything was great!
more vegetarian / vegan options would be suggested.
Celebrating a birthday , they made us feel very special. The service was spot-on from the minute we walked into the restaurant. The veal melted in my mouth.
Pasta was cooked perfectly.
Everything was so nice.
This is our 4th or 5th visit, all of which have resulted in positive experiences. This is significant bec my elderly companion frequently causes disruptions in new restaurants. The fact that he has never caused problems says that this place it good... makes it easier for all...and we always have enough for leftovers the next day.
You have become our first choice for special dinners.
Food was excellent. We had an early evening reservation and worried we would be rushed. Our server Steve timed the appetizers & food perfectly . Really enjoyed our time and will definitely be back.
We have been coming to D’Agnese’s for years and we will continue to do so! Great restaurant, wonderful selection pf fine dining entrees and a fantastic wine list! I cannot say enough good things about this restaurant. Great atmosphere with outstanding servers especially Mia! She is very attentive but reserved and extremely friendly!
Excellent service and food! Love the comfortable environment.
It just is such a great dining experience. Service staff is amazing. But the food is even better.
I have family that are in the business, chiefs, been around the culinary atmosphere for some time.
Trust me; you need to experience this restaurant at least once. I hate to say this…because if people listen…I will have a hard time getting another reservation.
Sevice was phenomenal, food was very good, reasonable prices. Salad ans soup was excellent.My only complaint is that the food was greasy. The greenbeans were swimming in oil and the chicken, veal and shrimp was not lightly dusted and sauted but heavily battered and fried. The lemon butter sauce was excellent.
Food was excellent as well as the service. Great place to celebrate any occasion or entertain business clients. Would highly recommend to friends and family looking for an elegant dining experience.
Very good food and good service. Very busy night but we did not feel rushed. We we're able to enjoy a dinner with friends as long as we wanted.
Last minute dinner with my husband. Great ambiance and good food!
I usually love this place, but didn't care for the entree I selected or the eggnog cheesecake. Waiter was good except toward end...just stopped checking to see if we wanted anything more. I had to hunt him down to get a second glass of wine.
Unfortunately somehow the restaurant had no record of my OpenTable reservation, which I had an email confirmation of. It was my husband's birthday and all they had left for seating was the hightop in front of the bar. I would have preferred a more private dining experience since it was his birthday. So that was rather frustrating. Fortunately the food was amazing. I would definitely come again, but next time would probably contact the restaurant directly for a reservation since apparently OpenTable's system doesn't communicate well with their system since my reservation was nowhere to be found.
I know D'Agnese's from its Akron location, but chose this spot to dine with a Cleveland friend. We were both well pleased, especially with our server and her knowledge of the menu offerings and the day's specials.
