Ago is an attractive well designed restaurant with a courteous and efficient staff. Only the food falls short. The tomatoes in the Caprese salad were not up to par. A Cesar Salad with chicken was also substandard, bland and with dried out chicken. The Burrata was too chilled when served and the risotto was just okay. In short Ago falls... More

I just wish this was a more hopping place which is was not. It was more like a very quite place to... More

Group celebrating a 50 th birthday. The food was average and the service was a little cool and arrogant. Nothing to justify the expensive prices. I would not recommend as too many other restaurants who are pleased to see new customers.

Ago is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. The food is very good and the service is impeccable. Denis was our waiter on Saturday and he is from Florence. He guided us through the menu and we selected their specials pasta of the day, which was mozzarella stuffed ravioli in a pink sauce with eggplant. I may be... More

Very typical standard good delicious Italian restaurant. Could not expect more or less but the waiter was excellent and understood the menu so well. The minute we listened to their recommendation, we could not resist to order foods recommended.

Went her because of the good reviews but I have to say it was a great disappointment. It started with the website which was out of date(that should have rung alarm bells). Got to the restaurant quite early and was served by a rather surly waiter. He was older with poor eyesight and seemed to speak little or poor English,... 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.
