You would never expect a good Italian restaurant in a strip mall in Palatine, but there it is! Went there with some friends for my 60th birthday Saturday night - the place was packed. Great service from our server - can't recall her name, however. Nice wine selection, very elegant dining experience - prices are what you would expect for... More

This restaurant is very charming and the food is delicious. Reservations are suggested and honored. Whether you order seafood, veal, chicken, beef, or their wonderful pasta dishes - you won't be disappointed. A bonus in the summer/fall is the ability to dine on their patio. They offer both covered but open air and truly outside seating.

Very comfortable dining rooms, and a seasonal outdoor area, and room. Authentic Italian food...the owner is the main chef. Mary...the chef's wife is at the front desk...she's very welcoming. Very nice bar area too.

I wanted to go here as I've heard that it is a hidden Italian gem in Palatine. The inside decor was very upscale as well as the prices, but the food and location are NOT on the same level. I have to admit that I almost cancelled my reservation due to the poor parking situation. Agio is located in a... More

We wanted a nice place in the Rolling Meadows/Palatine area to go with 4 co-workers for a birthday lunch, and chose Agio's for its convenient location and easy parking. (One person incorrectly thought they only served large groups, since their catering menu is the default which appears first on their website, but if you click "More Menus" you can view... More

I have dined here 3 times before and I wanted my daughter to try it so we went for lunch. We enjoyed our food but service was slow and we had to ask for water a few times before receiving any.

Good service is the difference between a good experience and a great one. Our server struck just the right tone for an informal business lunch. She knew the menu. Had a definite opinion about dishes and took responsibility for our experience. The food was better than average if not haute cuisine. Prices reasonable. Portions generous to large. Our tiramisu aficionado... More

I was here with girlfriends and we had an amazing dinner! Started with the Bruschetta Trio, which was very good. I had the Lobster Angelica which was one of the best pasta dishes I've ever had. Another favorite of the group was the Grouper special. The service was excellent - never an empty water glass, yet I never even seemed... More

This is one of my favorite places to eat Italian in Chicagoland. It's a bit on the pricey side and the tables are a little too close together Get a booth and you will be fine.
