The Risotta Pescatore was very good and the special shrimp with crab meat penne excellent. Had the fried green beans as a bit of decadence; good, but another choice might have been better. Hadn't been here for a while and it seems to have improved. Prices were in line with the chains such as Carraba's but the food definitely better.... More

The best happy hour food and small plates and craft beer and the food and service is impeccable. The bartenders are all fantastic!

The beautiful waitress is super nice, she knows the dishes and very present. The dishes we ordered are great but the Linguine with Clams needs improvement (both flavor and portion).

Pleasant space, broad menu with a variety of pasta veg, seafood, chicken dishes, nice people. I don't give it a higher rating because my pasta had way too much oil, too much salt. But a good choice in the neighborhood.

Went for lunch on Saturday afternoon. Usually go to a nearby restaurant but decided to try Agrodolce instead. There was no lunch menu so prices were at dinner level when I really wanted a light lunch. Almost everything on the menu was complex and had components that I dislike, so I ended up with appetizers which were good but more... More

Always good food and service. We go there weekly and we are never disappointed. I can't say enough about the place. Period.

With the recommendation of my boss, a few of us attending a meeting nearby tried this restaurant. He had been impressed with the happy hour menu so many of our party ordered multiple appetizers as their meal. There were also ample and interesting beer and wine choices. I tried the duck breast special which was rather overcooked and lacking flavor,... More

We absolutely love Agro!!! We try to get out to Agrodolce at LEAST once a week. If we don't dine in, we do take out. I am Italian, so I'm a bit of a snob when it comes to Italian food. I don't eat it out because it just isn't the same as home made :) -- Agrodolce is incredible!... More

Agrodolce creates very nice Italian dishes that change over time. The patio that is situated away from the parking lot is a nice atmosphere weather permitting.

We got dinner for two. We odered oysters, and they were old and felt like you chewing rubber. We should it send it back, The second dish, was pasta with some meat and shrimps. ( big mistake!) that meat balls were also not chewable and had some smell. I did not eat it! Just picked pasta. So, it was horrible.... More
