We decided to try Agostinos as we live close. We went with another couple who also wanted to tryout the restaurant for the first time. All of the meals were very good to great - Scallops and pasta, a special steak, a seafood pasta combination and the old standby spaghetti and sausage (homemade!). The ocean is across the street (PCH)... More

In Southern California by the coast, there are so many pretentious restaurants - Agostinos is the real deal. Father and Son cooking authentic food that is delicious. Generous portions, great friendly restaurant. I travel a lot, but live in Capistrano Beach, and Agostinos is one of my regular places to eat and when friends come to visit - I take... More

The restaurant is right on PCH and you can dine looking at the beach. But the menu is to-die-for. One of the few places where you can get Escargot. Their salmon melts in your mouth and their desserts are mouth-watering. Make reservations...definitely a hot spot right next door to the Capistrano Surfside Inn.

We had dinner here just as the sun set. We were a little early and they weren't open yet. We decided to wait in the parking place we had because we could watch the sunset over the ocean and the beach. About 10 minutes before they were officially open, the owner (I think) told us they were ready and we... More

I heard about this place through some friends and even though I'm picky with my Italian foods, I thought I'd try it out. To start, I loved the atmosphere, true Italian setting but with a beach view! I went with my boyfriend and were seated by Agostino himself, who actually seats all his guests, and our waitress was Leslie. Leslie... More

The best authentic Italian food anywhere. The Eggplant Parm,Chicken Marsala, Salmon Picatta to their daily dinner specials in one word OUTSTANDING!! The seafood is fresh, their salad dressings are made from scratch and the pizza like no other. Try it ...YOU will LOVE it!

Sorry but just didn't enjoy this from start to finish and was glad to pay the bill and leave. Food quality and taste was not good and thankfully on this occasion we were hurried along.

We love the chicken parm special...the chicken is so tender & the bread is fresh & good. The service has always been pretty good. It is family run & alot of care is put into the food.

Don't go to this place unless you sit on the two-table patio and want to talk above the PCH noise. The service was terrible (plates sat uncleared for 10-15 minutes) and the food was fairly bland and run of the mill. Inside decor was very run-down and a tad bit smelly. Think old New York Diner. the staff was dressed... More

It might have been an off night. However, we had horrible service. We waited forever for food that seemed very lackluster. I wish we had taken the car into the proper town in Dana Point and explored some more options for dinner. I walked out feeling like I overpaid for bad service and meh pasta.
