A delicious family style dinner with tons left over for "no cooking" the next day! Have eaten there & gotten take-out & always been happy & full! The veal & chicken primavera is delicious & loaded with veggies. The service & staff have always been especially friendly & helpful.

This is a family style place with very large portions, they do warn you if you are a first timer. Food is very good and either you take a lot home or at least one member of the party has to be a big eater.
Nice ambiance, good wine list, very nice staff! We'll return with friends.

If you like huge amounts of mediocre food, this is your place! The escarole and white beans was sooo heavy on dried basil that was all I could taste besides chicken base. The house salad was gigantic, but the dressing was lacking in character. Our chicken parm was more than 2 adults and 1 child could consume in one sitting. While could well, it was clear to the tastebuds the fryer oil needed to be changed. The oil imparted a fishy flavor.
On the bright side; service was friendly, wine was good, and the penne served with the chicken was a perfect al dente!

I love Augies, sadly they stuff you so much it is not an indulgence you can afford to do often! Augies has perfected family style food, that is they give you way too much food to eat and its all fabulous! Everything is made with love and purpose so you eat too much while there and then can't bare to leave your leftovers at the table! I've been a few times and had great service! They pick a nice, fun waitstaff that know the menu and have a fun time with you! Can't reccommend enough!

Exactly as described... Centrally located in ballston spa, huge portions, traditional Italian atmosphere buzz, phenomenal waiter...Marc...kids enjoyed writing on paper table cloths and loved the waiter...sauce wasn't great to me, but overall experience and portion sizes made it a winner. Spend 67 for 2adults, 2 kids and had enough left overs for full dinner day two. Will definitely go back...can't believe I've lived here for 20 yrs and never went here....they need to advertise more.
