AGGIO - Ashburn calificaciones y reseñas
The chef came out to greet us, as we asked for a special item that is not typically on the menu (recommended by a friend). It was homemade hot chocolate! And it was amazing! He was so gracious and friendly. The server and staff were top notch and the food was delicious. I definitely recommend starting with the kale caesar.
Food was bland
Four of us ate at Aggio Ashburn for my birthday. Three had the smaller prix fixe (appetizer, pasta dessert) and one ordered ala carte.
Appetizers were great, as were desserts. Grilled octopus was delicious (crispy outside, tender-chewy inside) with a little salad and couscous, although there was less than 2 oz. of octopus. The Burata with cured meats was a large portion. Brussels Sprouts were great too.
Three of us had tagliatelle with lamb bolognese - tasty, but nothing special, and short on meat, and the pasta was overcooked. Ditto for a pasta dish with smoked pecorino and a soft egg.
Desserts were spectacular: pumpkin cheescake was really more like a mousse, and deconstructed "smoked apple" pie was fabulous.
Portions were quite adequate: the guys finished their pastas and the gals each took half home. I don't know how anyone could finish the "large" prix fixe, which includes an entree.
And talking about entrees, there were only three: a half-chicken piccata, a seafood stew, and a steak, for $30, $34, and $70 respectively. So it's considerably more expensive with those included. If I return with my wife, we will probably have 2 appetizers, and then split one pasta, one entree and one dessert.
Service was very iffy - our server was brand new and didn't know the menu well (that's forgivable, although it's the second time we went, and the second time that things were off kilter.)
I would have rated better for ambience if it weren't so danged noisy. It wasn't that crowded, but the surfaces are all stone & glass, so the sound just keeps circulating.
We had the four course price fixe dinners. She had the chicken piccata, which was a half a chicken with the bones versus cutlets - terrible. I had the rib eye, which is $ 70 by itself - it is overpriced and a low grade cut. In fairness, the pasta course was pretty good. Moving to the wine list, it's very limited with almost all grocery store selections. Bottom line, don't go and I'd be surprised if they're still business six months from now. We went on a Saturday night at 7pm and it was only 30- 40% full.
Let me start by saying I am an Italian cook and every Italian cook thinks their meals are the best. That being said I feel my review is an accurate account of the food. We arrived at 6:30 and it was good that we did. It was a Saturday night. At that time, the restaurant was empty. That should have been the first sign. At that time our service was VERY good but as time progressed and they got busier , but never busy , the service declined. We ordered drinks. I asked if they had an Italian chardonnay. Only one chardonnay was offered. It was from Argentina. At an authentic Italian restaurant? Really? We all ordered pasta which was house made. Ok but nothing WOW. I tasted all of them. The dessert offerings included only 3 items. We declined. Would I return. No. There are too many other good places to eat to return to this one.
We are Italians. Our last visit to the restaurant with my husband was a disappointment as we went home hungry because of the small portions.
2 of my friends asked me out for dinner so I was happy to give it a second try especially because the restaurant had some renovations done.
Also this time we were too annoyed about the fact that the portions were so ridiculously small.
The 15$ octopus antipasto had literally # 4 small pieces of dry octopus on the plate. The pasta dish have an appetizer size which is so contrary to how Italians eat pasta! The 15$ ravioli were presented on a white oval plate which was merely empty and had #6 (!) ravioli on its side.
Even the 37$ cioppino entree had the size of an appetizer.
We were so hungry and asked at least 4 times to bring extra bread, and they would bring 3 slices every time, 1 for each person.
The food is good and I would definitely go back if the portions would be at least normal! If you are an Italian restaurant to my opinion it does not make sense to do a French cuisine plating.
We were so disappointed with Aggio. Service was bad. The staff, thoughfriendly, seemed very inexperienced. When we arrived, there was no one there to greet us. We had a reservation (not needed- only 2 tables were filled) so they even knew to expect a party for dinner. After a while, I walked over towards the kitchen, then halfway to the bar looking for someone,to seat us. Finally I got someone's attention. This was not a good way to begin. Our server only brought 3 menus for a table of 4,. Giving 1 to the youngest male first, then the oldest male then the middle aged woman and left the senior birthday girl with nothing. I didn't even mention that the youngest male had left the table to go to the rest room so the menu sat at an empty seat while my mother-in-law waited empty handed. I gave her my menu while we waited for the third one. water glasses were not filled and dishes not cleared. Dirty empty salad plates sat on the table for the whole meal. The server asked my mother-in-law if she wanted him to "get rid of this for you" pointing to one of her empty plates. Not the most genteel way of approaching clearing dishes (the ones that were cleared.) Serving bread with spreads is a really nice touch. However, they had little (the pink one) to no (the white one) taste. The bread was very oily and left everyone's hands greasy which is something my poor m-i-l complained about several times as she tried to look at photos of her grandchildren. With so much excellent bread out there, why serve such oily nothing bread? The entree pastas were very mixed. The butternut squash ravioli and the rotini were good. The fetuccini carbonara was awful. The only taste it had was grease. No one wanted to finish it. Paired with the oily, greasy bread - the fetuccini sat in my stomach for the rest of the night. no one even wants to order dessert for an 80th birthday celebration! We would not go back to Aggio nor would we recommend it to anyone.
This was our first and last time at Aggio.
Service - not very attentive and I’ll leave it at that.
Food - started with the charred octopus appetizer. Barely got 4 pieces for $17. Got the butternut squash ravioli which was an appetizer portion and was too sickeningly sweet. Our other pasta dish was so full of oil, it was barely edible.
We were unimpressed with Family Meal and hated Aggio. Voltaggio is 0-2 for me.
The food was outstanding. The service was horrible. It was hard to appreciate the good food with such poor service which did not warrant the high prices.
We were disappointed because the menu was very limited and it was very pricey for the quality of food. The bread was good but the bologna spread was very different and an odd spread.
lasagna was good and apple pie dessert but octopus was over salted and they keep trying to fill you up with bread because they know the food is not that good - the bread is ok 👍🏼
First of all, the menu online is totally different than what's offer in the restaurant. I already have my mind set on a particular entree for the prefix menu and come to realize that they said the online menu is for their Maryland location and not for Ashburn. The Prix menu online is also for 4 items (appetizer, pasta, secondi and dessert), but in the restaurant menu is only for 3 items (salad, pasta and dessert) and the selection is a lot less (even the drink menu is different).
The services there is extremely slow. There was one big table, and two 2 people table and our table (5 people). And they only have 2 people there as a waitress and do the bar.. it takes a long time to get drinks/order.
Food - the homemade pasta consistency is great, Al dente. However, the pasta is on the bland side it need some salt.
I didn't get to eat the dessert, i was interested to find out the chef special and the waitress was saying she's going to find out for us from the Chef. However, when she come back she's asking if we want the check....
Pleasantly surprised. Happy hour - all drinks are half off M-F, ends at 7pm. Kids eat free M-W. Kids dinner comes with salad. Many good looking entrees on the menu, we all had pasta and salads. Kids played shuffleboard while adults talked waiting for the food. Kitchen was a little slow for what I would want on a Monday night but not bad. We would definitely go back.
One of the best restaurant in Loudoun One! The food and service was great! Will definitely come back again.
Very poor experience on a night they weren't busy at all. Team service was a disaster with no one knowing what the other team members were doing. 40 minutes for our salads, and the pasta was unremarkable. Will never try them again.
Minimal serving. Chicken served raw. No plans to return.
A very nice meal and very nice service. The dessert was amazing and the ambiance perfect.
Went with a group of friends on Saturday night. We were seated at the high bar top that is right between the dining room and bar--we loved the spot. Our waiter was amazing. Didn't catch his name but had a few tattoos :-). Spent lots of time going over dinner choices with us, handcrafting drinks for some in our party, offering suggestions, etc. All his recommendations were spot on and we thought the food was great. A fun night!
Made a same-day reservation at Aggio for a girls night out. The food was delicious! I would say that the price was very reasonable. The lasagna is a must try!!
Bread, Apps, and Entrees were very good. Service was a little off. Tough location within One Loudoun -- I hope it can survive.
Went here for our anniversary and were hoping for a more romantic atmosphere than we got. It just didn't have that ambience and was not terribly intimate. The food was good, but we weren't blown away. The salads were delicious but after I asked for the dressing on the side, they also left off the breadcrumbs and shaved parm and I had to ask for each. Basically they had just given me the lettuce and the dressing. The dressing was delicious though and once I received all the other constituents of the salad, it was awesome. We opted for the prix fixe menu and since the pasta was homemade the small portion was definitely enough. I thought it was good, but the sauce wasn't the best I've ever had, by any means (though I'm a pretty harsh sauce critic). The meatballs were huge and nice and soft but the center was a little too rare for my liking. Also tasted a little meaty for my liking. My husband got the cavatelli and pesto and liked it - I did not. To me, it tasted like guinea pig bedding smells. We probably should've just shared a salad, ordered our entrees and split a desert. The deserts were good but I was a little confused why the shining star of the dish was just piped at the bottom so basically it just looked like a few cookies on a plate with some chocolate sauce underneath. The taste was great, but it was less than amazing. Overall, we had a nice time and the service was very good, minus the salad issue. I wouldn't necessarily recommend this place to anyone looking for a romantic atmosphere - there were families with kids and that didnt seem out of the ordinary thanks to the big, open room. Not that I mind that, but it was our first night out after having our second baby and we were looking forward to some peace and quiet. lol. Probably wouldn't run back.
this was our second dinner since changes were made to management and menu. It was very good! Had different entrees this time and both were excellent. Started with Caesar salad and had the lamb lasagna and chicken piccata. Each had a different twist on standard dishes and were prepared beautifully. Definitely will be back!
We made a reservation for lunch and the place was closed! Very weird that OpenTable processed the reservation... is this place closed for good? we are returning customers but we are concerned that they had to close down...
Although very nice, the wait service was completely untrained. Dessert came out before appetizers. Orders were taken incorrectly. One person ordered plain spaghetti with butter, no meatballs, because of food allergies. When it came out with meatballs, wait person asked whether the diner could just eat around the meatballs. No. No. No. At least we know they remade the dish and didn't just pitch the meatballs. Appetizers and desserts were delicious, which saved the meal. The entrees were not good; either overcooked (pasta) or undercooked (chicken).
Walked in to an empty restaurant at 8:00pm, should've known then. Took 15 minutes to get drink orders. The appetizer was over fried and tasteless. Ordered cavatelli and tasted like cardboard. So much potential but they blew it! Empty the place so they can put a real restaurant in there!
Our first experience with new and improved Aggio! Very nice indeed. We shared ceasar salad to start and wonderful bread served with meal. Then had Black Bass and Raditore pasta entrees. All served hot and perfectly prepared. We were impressed!
Outstanding food and service.
Not sure why this restaurant isn't busier! Service was wonderful, food was delicious!
Absolutely excellently designed menu choices
We have been to the Aggio in Friendship Heights several times, although not for quite awhile: this was our first visit to the Ashburn location. Menu and food quality were consistent with our expectations, although one dish - the squid ink pasta - was seriously over salted. Wish this room had the comfort and warmth of the room at Friendship Heights.
Went for dinner with friends. Everything we ate was delicious!!! Definitely recommend
This is a great restaurant. Good food, great wine options. Quiet, and I hope it stays!
When we walked in it was oddly quiet for a Saturday night in ashburn at one loudoun. We realized why once we got a sense for how this place operates. The servers were super nice. I kind of felt sorry for them because they were top notch but in a place that's obviously on its way under. They deserve better. It wasn't super busy like I said, but everything took really long. Way too long. The food was not good either. I expected much more from a restaurant opened by a famous chef. My husband and I joked that I cook tastier food and frankly, I suck at cooking. We were treated very well, again, but overall for taste, atmosphere, and speed of service it was really underwhelming and sad. I don't think they'll be around long at all. Don't expect to get amazing Italian food here. Sorry :/
Great food, Great service!
I am not sure why the place was so empty. The food is delicious, the decor very nice, great service. It is definitely worth checking out. We had a large group and tried a lot of the menu items. Everyone enjoyed it.
Excellent, creative food, great service, a real gem
You should try this neighborhood gem!!
A terrific brunch with easy conversation and delicious creative cuisine !! My appetizer -the grilled octopus- was very innovative ( I'm crazy about octopus .... this version was delicious!). Pasta dishes were flavorful and perfectly cooked. The ciabatta they served with a mortadella spread and fresh ricotta is to die for!
Angela, our server was friendly and accommodating even served as a bartender! Don't leave without trying the Amaretto Sour an impecable house cocktail!
We'll be back to try more food choices!
Food was tasty but overpriced. I've had much better for less.
Aggio was wonderful. The food was fresh and well-prepared. We and our friends all had the prezzo fisso option. A great value for four courses. The pasta with lamb bolognese was delicious. The grilled octopus was well-done and also delicious. The hanger steak was perfectly cooked and the grits were coarse and fabulous. My husband and one friend had the fish option and both said it was very good. Two of us had the strawberry rhubard tart for dessert, which was fabulous. We also had the deconstructed cannoli and the cheesecake with wonderful results. We were regulars at Family Meal (the restaurant prior to Aggio) and it was nice to be greeted like an old friend by the manager when we arrived! I hope that word gets out and people start to dine at Aggio. It is well worth the visit.
We've been here three times and each is better than the last. This isn't your typical Italian that serves same old pizza and boxed pasta. It's different and delicious and isn't afraid to bring sophistication to the Mac and cheese capital of Virginia. All food is fresh and seasonal and unlike any Italian in in Ashburn. The staff is attentive and knowledgeable and welcoming. And there are cocktails. Delicious cocktails. Don't miss this.
