Quality Italian Food

Loved this place, family friendly and you can dress casual. The food was amazing... But as others have said its family style which means each entrée will serve in my eyes 4 people at least! It was our first time there, and my daughter loves calamari so we had that as an appetizer, also family... read more

This is my family's go to place for authentic family style dining, they have huge portions and are always so accommodating. My father's family is Italian and they are very picky about Italian restaurants, my Italian grandmother was extremely happy with the food here. We had a group of 10 for my birthday dinner and the service was exceptional. My... More

The food is very good and the portions are family-style. Service is good and there is plenty of selection on the menu. I will certainly be returning.

When we have a family event, we often go here. For us, it just isn't worth it unless you have 6+ people. At that size 2-3 entree's is way plenty but gives you a variety to share. We generally start with a big salad with Italian dressing and chomp on the bread which is warm and yummy. There is always... More

I have been to Augie's a few times previously and have always had a decent experience, so I was happy to attend a family Christmas dinner on December 20th. We ordered the kitchen sink, which is pasta in vodka sauce with shrimp, chicken and sausage mixed in as well as chicken parmesan and ziti with sausage and meatballs. There was... More

Recently visited Augies and enjoyed one of their nightly specials.. Homemade pasta with spinach, eggplant, zuccini squash and shrimp in light garlic/olive oil.. It was very good but we took home more than we ate.. Even after a second meal we still had leftovers.. While that may appeal to some that is not my preferred way of dining... I enjoyed... More

Augies is for people who emphasize quantity over quality. If you love the form of Italian cooking that emphasizes tomato sauce and carbs, do hurry to Augies. If you love crowds and noise, do hurry to Augies. Plus, they're rude. We were a party of 8; we lingered at the table after the meal for conversation over coffee (less than... More

My daughter and I shared Augie's most-ordered dish (according to our excellent waitress) of pasta, chicken and shrimp in a creamy sauce, a salad, and Tiramasu for dessert and had leftovers for 3 more meals! The family style concept is fantastic with the food cooked to order. The staff was attentive and friendly. Worth a trip from anywhere in The... More

We had a wedding rehearsal dinner at Augies and they did an awesome job! We had to make a menu change at the last minute due to one of the guests were gluten free. Augie was able to accommodate amazingly. Our server Regina was so friendly and accommodating. What a great experience !!!

Hard not to stay away from Augies too long if you love good Italian food in generous proportions and sharing delectable entrees. Place looks like a church or funeral parlor outside but once you get over that you'll find excellent service, reasonable prices and a great family experiance.
