Great Italian restaurant - even has ocean view!

Had a nice evening dinner with my friends at Agostino's - Loved it - especially they catered to my Gluten allergy! And the resort gave us a 10% coupon as well! Nice atmosphere - and you can sit outside as well for an ocean view!

This Italian restaurant was absolutely the best choice close to our Resort. Pizza (vegetable) was our appetizer and it was so good I would have been satisfied to have more and make it our meal! My salmon entree was delicious and cooked perfectly. I had a side of mixed vegetables sauteed in chicken broth, also very good. The service was... More

I'm usually not one to write reviews about restaurants but this one DESERVED IT! My family is Italian and I am first generation Italian. I have been searching high and low for years for some good authentic Italian food. Low and behold... I finally found it! I had Luigi's (the Italian chef who is in his 70s and still does... More

The pizza is very good, however, the ends of the crust came out burnt. The wait staff is very friendly and attentive. My water glass was filled constantly. Beware, the website hasn't been updated because the prices are different. There is plenty of parking and it is right across the street from the beach. The owner has a cooking class... More

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
