We didn't end up eating here because it was the last day ther we're in business and they were just cooking what they had and putting it on the buffett to eat. So, they are out of business now.
Argerrios' is a great local Italian restaurant with delicious food, good drinks & excellent service. It has a lovely location just across from Kerrytown & if you get a table by the window, you can do some fun people watching. There is alsoa lovely outdoor area if the weather is nice.
Most authentic Italian food in Ann Arbor, in the opinion of this ex-New Jersey Italian-American. Closest thing to my Grandma's cooking.
Reserved a table for graduation. Party of 5 ordered pizzas, spinach lasagna and bruschetta. Everything was delicious! Service was excellent, timely and we never wanted for anything.
Will definitely return.
I've been living near Ann Arbor for 20 years and this place is in the top 5, if not, top 3 of my favorite restaurants in Ann Arbor. Great location, amazing food, the best service I have ever received at a restaurant. Our waiter, Harrison, provided us with the best care and kept checking in on my table. Highly recommend this restaurant to anyone, whether it be a family dinner, birthday get together, or date. You can't go wrong!!
Food and service were both good
The service was very good. I thought the food was mediocre. The wine selection was ok. My pasta was dry, so I asked for sauce which helped. My husband had pasta with egg plant. You needed a magnifying glass to find the egg plant. I think if I were go there again, I would order pizza or traditional spaghetti and meatballs. I miss the Spaghetti Machine, a former Italian restaurant in Ann Arbor.
The service was nice, but the food was underwhelming. It was pretty flavorless and overpriced for what it is. I could make something better at home. Now I know why I could get a reservation on Valentine's Day...others already knew to avoid!
not sure who's fault it was that our meals didn't come out together, but apparently mine didn't get made properly--ordered off the menu, no changes. Soup was cold. Waiter a bit goofy (sorry).
We've eaten at Argerio's a # of times at it's predictably good. The staff is always friendly, the food is good and the prices reasonable.
Great spot, love it!!!! Service always good in past but this time not so good... Had to really ask for things that should be automatic....
Restaurant was very good, however, for some reason the reservation we made via Open Table was not honored..... we had to wait almost 1 hour for our table. Other than that, the service was very good.... food was good as well.
Very slow service. Very bland food slathered in tasteless sauce.
Some of our group raved, some deemed their meal average. Waitstaff excellent; attentive and responsive. Large portions.
We were trying to find a restaurant with a basic spaghetti w/meat sauce. This restaurant was okay for that. However, with only two other tables occupied we were taken to the rear of the dining room and seated next to the kitchen and restroom doors........not a good start. The spaghetti was fine but a nice herb/olive oil with the bread sure would have been good. We may try Argieros again but certainly not at the top of our "return to" list.
We went for a family dinner. Service was great! They weren't very busy, but food was great.
Very nice neighborhood restaurant. Good food with excellent service by our waiter, nick. Went after a um football game and it was a nice break from the Main Street chaos.
Worst restaurant service we have had in years! One and half hours to get our food. First person's entree came out 45 minutes after we ordered. The last persons entree arrived an hour and a half after ordering. One dish at a time five minutes a part! The last dish was spaghetti! Really!!!!! Boiled noodles took 1.5 hours!!!! No excuse! So miserable! STAY AWAY!!!!
Some of the most mediocre food and worst service I've had yet in A2. It's been a while since I've been inspired to give a restaurant such a poor review - but this experience was so memorably bad I had to take a minute to share. The waitress - young, female, absolutely indifferent to customer service - actually said to us upon returning to our table when we called her over, after ignoring us for upwards of 20 minutes while we watched her through the window talk with a group on the patio: "Hey, sorry, I forgot about you and your food - but I really wanted to catch up with my friend and her parents. I haven't seen them in a while. It was really great to catch up." I'm sorry - ARE YOU SERIOUS? I literally couldn't believe how shamelessly and effortlessly she shared that our food had to wait while she socialized during her shift with friends. My husband loves the Pasta de Giorno and so we return when in town for games. Or I should say, we returned... since we'll never be back.
First off, I do not reccomend this restaurant, at all. I want to refaced this by stating that I am a chef and have worked in the industry for quite a while in metro Detroit and abroad (London and Northern Ireland). I gave no idea how they are still in business.
I went there with my wife for our weekly date last Friday night. We were hoping to get a nice casual dinner before catching a film at the Michigan Theater. I had heard good things about Argiero's from friends in Ann Arbor, do we went there.
My wife and I enjoyed the ambiance and service. It was very casual and low key; it was very relaxing.
I ordered the chicken Parmesan, which had several issues: 1) it was under seasoned, frankly it tasted like a child had made it. 2) It was barely browned after frying and bit back when I bit into it. It was clearly underdone, not raw, but it needed a few more minutes. I sent it back and heard from the kitchen (they sat us by the kitchen) "Tastes fine to me! It's really bland and I could have cooked it longer, but it's fine to me!" First if all, if it's any of the things you said it was (bland and undercooked), Chef, it shouldn't be good enough for you and certainly not for customers. Where are your standards? Maybe this is why your restaurant is so poorly seated on a Friday night? Take pride in your work! Geez.
My wife's meal was ok. She ordered the pesto pasta and said it was ok, but not $20 ok, so there's that.
The service was amateur, but friendly. I imagine being a college town there's a lot if turnover in the front of the house staff.
Overall, none of this would have been unbearable if it wasn't for the high prices. If this was a nicer place, I would have been ok with the prices. If the food was better, I would have been ok with the higher prices too. (Seriously rework the price points for your menu.) Perhaps this is place known for their pizza not their Italian food?
Our experience was tremendously disappointing.
I have been to the 2 other main Italian restaurants in downtown Ann Arbor, so I wanted to give this one a try, especially since their website said it was the only Italian family owned one in town. I never saw inside as we ate outside. Outside location is okay, a little loud due to road noise. I had the special(which was hand written on a piece of paper), salmon in a citrus sauce, which I thought was very good. The best thing on the plate were the fried risotto cakes. I told the waitress these should at least be available as an appetizer, as they were amazing. My son said the meatballs were very good.
Overall, I would rate this as a good Italian restaurant, far from the worst I have been to, and not the worst out of the 3 in town.
The food was tasty, but the waiter forgot our appetizer.
Food is always excellent! This is a neighborhood gem.
Just love, love, love Argiero's - we have been here numerous times, and the food is wonderful, a great value and always tastes homemade! The family still runs it, and it shows in the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Always a treat!
I had not been to this restaurant in 20 years. My Dad (89 years old) requested a spot that wasn't noisy. After looking at the reviews I decided to give this place a second chance. Reviewers were right - it is not as loud as other facilities. Our server was friendly and did a nice job for the most part. There were four of us dining. We had two orders of pasta, a grilled chicken and a pizza. We started with the bruschetta as an appetizer. Not a great choice. It was white bread (not toasted or grilled) with a tad of sausage and some red sauce. The bread was a soggy mess. The two pasta dishes were good and my friend was quite happy with the pizza. Unfortunately the restaurant had to make new dough and we waited for over an hour for the pizza. We did not learn the reason for the wait until the pizza arrived. Not what we expected on a Wednesday night. The grilled chicken was blah and tasteless. We chose to eat on the patio due to the musty damp smell in the restaurant. I liked the patio - it was nice.
We visit often and keep coming back because of the hospitality and the food quality. We love the insalata supremo and always get two or three for the table. Everyone enjoyed their main plates as well - I had the spinach lasagne, and others ordered eggplant parmagiana, eggplant con spaghetti and a pizza. I''ve had the pesto pasta in the past and it's super flavorful - the garlic and basil both punch, and the rotini is the perfect noodle for it. Skip the corporate Italian places and give Argiero's a try.
Most authentic Italian "comfort food" in Ann Arbor. Nice to have a place run by actual Italian Americans who grew up with this food (like myself). Also a well stocked bar, nice wine list selection, and shaded outdoor dining across from Kerrytown Farmer's Market. Highly recommended if you feel like more of a restaurant experience than Zingerman's Deli a block away.
Argierios is a great little restaurant serving excellent food.
We would probably think of it more often if it wasn't downtown.
Argiero's has always been our "go to" place for family occasions that include our elderly mothers. We took them there for dinner to celebrate Mother's Day. One mother sent back her fish, saying it was stale and overcooked. Two orders of manicotti arrived bubbling hot with charred pasta. The pesto pasta was bad enough that 3/4 of the plate was untouched. The appetizers and salad arrived simultaneously. The bread with the mushroom appetizer was also burnt. I'm not sure whether they were just having an off day, but we won't be returning.
The restaurant has a wonderful family run feel and charm about it. The service was outstanding. We mainly went there for Pizza, which was delicious and very reasonably priced. One of the kids had pasta, which was a little pricey compared to everything else, which was great value of r money.
Really good veal. Great, homey atmosphere. Nicely situated in Kerrytown.
Exceptional service, good food, really nice family atmosphere. We really enjoyed ourselves!
Always a great experience- real home made Italian food and warm atmosphere. A great, laid back neighborhood restaurant. The pizza, bolognese, the pasta, the calamari and limited but fine wine list make for an enjoyable evening. During the summer they have a nice outdoor sitting and people watching area.
Amazing! The service was great, the food was delicious, the setting was perfect.... Definitely returning!
We were a group of 6 at Argiero's on a busy Friday night. The place was full but, in addition to the food, the best thing was we could actually hear each other speak. SO many places are just to noisy to carry on conversations, but this was great. Handy location when going to Kerrytown Concert House too.
Good food, great service
Invited by a friend, we were delighted to have dinner at Argeiro's. The food was simple traditional italian with good bread and wine. Plenty of room for large (Italian) families. We really enjoyed dinner and can't wait to go back. Definitely a restaurant on our list .
This is a good old-fashioned Italian restaurant. However, when we arrived on time, we were told that they were running behind and your reservation couldn't be met for at least half an hour. We ended up sitting at the bar, which was fine but not what we were hoping for.
This is a nice alternative to the craziness around busy UMich weekends. Our group of 11 was accommodated. Service and food were solidly good and we'll go back. Pricing was appropriate for this kind of family meal experience.
The spaghetti and meatballs were excellent. I especially enjoyed the housemade red sauce that they used.
