“Great food! Great service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2012

We love Auggies and have been here many times. The food is amazing. Great place to bring the whole family. It's a busy place, but we love the energy of the restaurant.

“controlled insanity but delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2012

Very small and very, very crowded but absolutely fantastic food in extremely large portions. They only accept reservations for parties of 6 or more or for special occasions according to a phone call and their website. It gets crowded early, so be prepared to wait unless you are one of the first ones there when they open. We arrived at about 515 on a Saturday night and waited about 30 minutes, fortunately there was space at the small bar for us to wait (or to eat if we didn't want a table). We were seated at a table by the door, so had to deal with the occasional draft and customers trying to get by our table, hostess finally removed a chair which helped immensely. Waitress was absolutely wonderful as were all the employees. They advertise that servings are for two...more like for four...you'll get plenty to take home. Definitely not a romantic dinner outing, but if you are looking for good food and don't mind the insanity, then this is the place.

“Incredible!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2012

Come hungry and ready to have a feast ! Augie's is not portion shy. Three people can have a hearty serving just from one entree. There were three of us and each of us ordered an entree, even though we were warned of the large portion family style dishes. Sure enough, we all went home with doggie bags, from which lasted for two more servings from each tray.
The food is truly authentic and delicious. The cannoli's are to die for. Its a small restaurant and reservation are taken only for parties of six or more. We went on a Sunday and did not have to wait for a table, but as we were leaving approximately 7 PM; all tables were full.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2012

Huge portions that serve two and then some. Great Italian food. Get there early because there is usually a wait.

“Are you hungry?”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2012

Portions are very large-meatballs the size of baseballs. Food is very good but the restaurant is small so plan accordingly but do not miss this.
