The small store-front in this strip mall is a little deceiving, and the font on the marquis sign inclines you'll need to know what and where you're looking for. Everything on the menu looked terrific, although I may rave specifically about the lasagna. Our server was spot-on and quite attentive... read more

Decent lunch place or very casual dinner. Interestingly, I've had good pizza here and I've also had mediocre pizza here. Not sure about the pasta dishes. Ok soups. You order at the bar and they bring it to your table - the tables aren't really waited on. If you go here during lunch Monday-Friday, it's usually packed.

Took my clerk for a birthday lunch at her favorite restaurant. Order at front counter and waited for our number to be called and we retrieved our meals as there is no wait staff fro lunch. Grated cheese, napkins, and silverware all self serve. We both ordered a chicken and pasta dish with light red tomato sauce. Served in a... More

It's great to have Agrodolce in the neighborhood. The food is always excellent and the wine and beer lists are great. The staff is like family.

We walked in at 5:30PM on a Saturday to meet a third for dinner. An indifferent hostess said there was only one table for more than two people open, and it was right inside the front door. But we observed that half the house (the tables along the windows) was empty! As a result, every time someone came in or... More

My daughter eats here at least once a week. She suggested we celebrate my birthday here. We ordered the Mahi Mahi/ shrimp special and the spinach steak salad--both to share. Steak came well done even though we asked for medium rare and the seafood was over cooked and the shrimp tasted old. The manager recognized her and asked her how... More

Awful bread, mediocre wine served too warm for a red, mushy eggplant Parmesan, red sauce just chopped tomatoes from a can. Frankly Olive Garden does a better job. Abysmal is a nice word for this meal. Oarmesan

Inside the restaurant are very dim lights and elegance. Not the fanciest or most modern furniture, but still has a romantic dinner feel. Delicious and flavorful entrées. Prices are good for the value. Orders go MUCH quicker at lunchtime because everyone orders carry-out and sits wherever they want, instead of waiting to be seated by a host and rely on... More

Good food. Mostly quiets. Tucked in the corner. Nice date place. Clean friendly. I love the intimate feeling small Italy restaurant.
