The lunch menu is small but presents the diner with a number of well thought out selections. http://agorestaurant.com/lunch-menu.html. I recommend the Filetto di manzo; grilled filet mignon medallions with arugula and shaved parmesan cheese. The meat is tender and flavorful. The wait staff is both attentive and knowledgeable.

Mediocrity is the theme. Nothing special and very average. Food needs spark. Went to il Fornaio for lunch and should have gone again for dinner. Nothing bad it's ok. That's it-just ok. Service is decent. Nice people. But not getting what makes this place memorable!

The food was very good and the wine selection is also very good. Enjoyed our meal and you can order off the menu as well which is nice. Restaurant was comfortable and was not overpriced but not cheap given it is in West Hollywood.

Blown away by the food. Ago did not disappoint. Staff was professional and if you want to see stars while eating the best Niochi this side of Italy this is the place. Not only was the hostess, manager and wait staff top notch would you ever think you could see George Clooney, Micky Rourke and Simon Cowell in one place?... More

I went to Ago by myself and the staff treated me like a super star. Impeccable service. Restaurant is a little pricey but the filet mignon is over the top good and once again.... the service was out of this world.

The food was amazing especially the truffle pizza and mushroom risotto. Service was impeccable, never having to ask for water to be refilled. Definitely worth a trip.

I am eternally disappointed by Italian restaurants that serve pasta and sauce. This is what I've been wishing for! Spectacular flavor in sauces, meats, excellent cheeses and truffle-infused dishes. A blessing for a militant foodie like me. I'm sorry to be leaving LA!

The title says it all..... It's a real, high end, Italian restaurant, with all the real Italian food, appetizers, handmade pasta, the real extra thin veal Milanese, fresh seafood, great desserts. High end food, service and prices. You might spot celebrities having dinner there. Go for it!
