Old world Tuscan dishes are the specialty at Ago Restaurant located on Melrose Avenue and Clinton Street in the heart of West Hollywood. Guests can be reassured that they will dine on great Italian food at a restaurant that is co-owned by the Godfather himself, Robert Di Nero. The Chef and co-owner, Agostino Sciandri, grew up in the lush countryside of Tuscany where he learned to perfect his Northern Italian culinary style. At Ago, guests can experience the full progression of an Italian dinner, starting with an Antipasti of Buffalo Mozzarella Caprese, or the Polipo e Patate, grilled octopus in a lemon dressing. For the Primo course, patrons can choose from a variety of pastas and risottos, like the Pappardelle in wild boar ragù or the Porcini Mushroom Risotto. The Secondo course selections offer a diverse range of meat, chicken, and fish specialties. The popular Costata di Manzo is a rib-eye steak lovingly grilled in the wood burning oven, and served with rosemary potatoes. The Dolce course will end a meal with a creamy panna cotta or delicious seasonal tart. Indulge in the richness of Tuscan cuisine at Ago Restaurant.
I loved this restaurant! The ambiance is lovely. The food is excellent and prices are reasonable. I felt that I totally got my money's worth and had an elegant evening. Highly recommend!
Had guests out of town from Chicago. Lots of celebrity sightings, amazing service, amazing food. Could NOT have been better. Wonderful night.
Outstanding service, friendly and knowledgeable staff,
I have been to Ago once but it was a quick visit to join friends who were dining there, so I decided to book one night with some friends. As i lived in Italy for many years I was missing that nice and romantic Italian atmosphere. I love this place, dim light, amazing patio, great food and not overly too pricy... It was enjoyable, waiters were really nice and friendly, and the food was really nice. The portions were actually generous. I do recommend this restaurant if you want a classy and romantic Italian evening.
Overall I would rate it as a three. The resturant should ask when they take your resevation over the phone or via e-mail if you would like to be with other patrons that smoke. In addition, we were celebrating a birthday which was specified via the reservation. However, it was not made as a special event which made it disappointing
