great little place, wonderful atmosphere, very pleasant service. Food is good, I wouldn't say excellent as I have had better Italian, but it is very good, and reasonable for LA standards.

I have been coming to Ago since it opened. I always loved it! I hadn't been in a few years and am happy to say it is just as good as it always was!! I had the carpaccio to start and the ravioli with asparagus and truffles for the main course. They were the best ravioli I have ever had!!... More

We went during the Oscars and had a great, prepared menu including apps and desert. Service was great and they had set up tvs throughout the dining room.

Ago is supposed to be a De Niro esq restaurant in LA. The food is very good as they seem to have re-dedicated themselves to the art if dining. The red sauce is a cut above the ordinary. The seafood is not overcooked as so many Italian restaurants are like to do. The prices are Metropolitan, but you get it... More

Visited this restaurant during our stay in L.A. a couple of weeks ago and it was really good. The pasta was delicious, the staff was friendly and the restaurant is beautiful.

Since I don't live in L.A. I haven't eaten here in years. Today my husband and I ate at Ago for lunch and it was extremely disappointing. First off, one of my pet peeves is to be charged for bottled water in clear bottles when I just wanted a glass of ice water. Then they refilled the bottled water as... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighborhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
