Throwback Italian Restaurant

I consider any restaurant that has Frank Sinatra quotes and an open mic night a "throwback" restaurant. Good food, reasonable prices and do NOT pass on the cake style Spumoni if you have any affinity for Spumoni at all.

Our road weary party of 4 stumbled into Agostino Ristorante on New Year's Eve while traveling down to San Diego after a long day in Hollywood. What a find! My first impression was that of a local, friendly, neighborhood type restaurant and we were treated as though we were regulars. The staff were very patient in helping us decide on... More

We had received a coupon for 10% off our bill from the resort in which we stayed for the week. Nowhere on the coupon was there a directive to reservations being required, nor did it indicate that holidays were exempt. We arrived on New Years Eve at 5pm and were greeted with arrogance and disdain. The gentleman sounded and acted... More

Dinner time and the place was full! I grabbed a seat at the bar and happily enjoyed the full menu and great service. The place is popular with locals as well as visitors and suits families and singles. Live music created a nice backdrop for a delicious salmon dinner.

We came here with 13-15 people the day after Thanksgiving. It was awesome! Sasha was an amazing server :) She split our check for us, she was super sassy and hilarious, and the bartender made amazing drinks! We even made a pear martini together! The food was delicious and hit the spot. I ate the linguini with clams. The portion... More

the food was good and plentiful, the view terrific but a little expensive. Had the chicken marsala and it was more than I could finish.

This was a recommendation from the resort where we stayed. WE had the $10-9 inch pizza, $5 wine, and $3 beer. The happy hour menu had a fairly large selection of appetizers and pizza choices. Check out their on line menu for Italian meals. Since this was the day before Thanksgiving we weren't going to eat much and passed on... More

This establishment was recommended by other local businesses as very good, reasonably priced, and authentic Italian dinners. They were spot on. My dinner was excellent and the other members of the dinner party had the comment of their dishes. The staff were very friendly, attentive and knowledgeable of the dinner selections and were helpful in explaining and describing the various... More
