The food was good basic italian food. We thought it was going to be a dive after we got disappointing salad, but the good entree brought it back. Try to get a seat in the front where you have an ocean view. With the right table you can also watch the sun set while eating. The price was normal for... More

We went to this restaurant next door to the Capistrano Surfside Inn and the food was excellent. I would definitely go back.

We used another search engine to find Agostino, so I was surprised to see so many negative reviews. We also had Leslie but she was cheerful and very helpful, not inattentive or unpleasant. She helped me figure out which dish to order (I couldn't decide between gnocchi and another housemade pasta), offered extra bread, and was on point our whole... More

We have seldom had a better Italian meal but our server was not that attentive. The price seemed high to me, but we haven't dined out in So. Cal. for a while so maybe this is normal.

Usually a restaurant located on the beach doesn't offer a great fare but my wife and I were very pleasantly surprised to have a very nice dinner here on New Years Eve. Our waitress Leslie was fantastic. She was delightful and ebullient at each encounter. Please ask for her by name. Since it was New Years Eve the place was... More

We weren't expecting anything too fantastic. Although we heard the seafood linguine was very good. The waitress was not very hospitable but she warmed up a bit. The Pinot Grigio by the glass was not great but the Sauvignon Blanc was an improvement. The minestrone I am told was very authentic as was the linguine vongole. I loved my veal... More

If I'm spending $25 a plate on food, I do expect fresh ingredients and bread/salad. I had none of the above at my last visit. Disappointing as I'd heard great things about Agustino's... The staff was mostly very accommodating; until they wanted to go home early due to lack of patrons. The food itself was NOT GOOD. I could have... More

Entres still done well. There seems to be a real cut back on the quality of the sides. The antipasta really needs an upgrade.

Agostinos is right on Pacific Coast highway, and hard to see. The parking is in the back. It is family run, with great food, simple setting, and a place locals go for no nonsense Italian food. I have been going for years and have never been disappointed.
