Great place for a good night. Service was great.

For entree we had the zucchini pieces which came out cold. For main we had the pork belly which was underwhelming as well as the gnocchi which was quite nice. The waiter left us to pour our own water, the cocktails that we got later on were quite nice. For dessert we had the chocolate cake, it was delicious but a very small serving for an almost $20 dessert. Overall I was surprised with the cost for what we received and will probably go back to an old favourite Italian restaurant before coming back to Agostinis

Was told it was best Italian in Canberra. NOT. No tablecloths, paper napkins, small selection of mains, it really is just a pizza place. Never had the same staff member twice. No one checked on our meals or at the end about our experience. Very disappointed, think we just have a different expectation.

A lovely experience. Good food and wine. However didn’t love the table right next to the wall way tot he kitchen. My view was one of the fridges.

Fabulous experience. Food was great. We had a larger group and two of our party had dietary issues, which were handled superbly, even though we ordered the banquet. Definitely will return and highly recommend.
