Asiago's Ratings and Reviews
My husband & I decided to celebrate our 38th anniversary at Asiago's because we have enjoyed our previous dining experiences there. This time, as in the past, the food was superb (with the exception of dessert-stale cinnamon bread) - food was well presented on the plate, colorful, a delight to the palate with creative offerings that help make Asiago's a unique dining experience. We wish the service were as satisfactory as the food. We made our reservations online and included the information that we were celebrating our 38th anniversary. I assumed (shame on me for assuming something) that the fact we were celebrating our anniversary would mean we'd be seated in a location where conversation would be easy to enjoy. Instead we were directed to a table right in the middle of the large room where there would be noise all around and it would be very difficult to carry on any meaningful conversation. I requested a more private table. We were left to stand by the unacceptable table for quite some time before the hostess finally directed us to a more quiet room. Our waiter was quite nice and gave us his full attention when he was taking our order (he even let me sample a tiny amount of the sauce for the dish I was considering to help me decide), although he seemed rather distracted otherwise. He promised to bring us the House bread and then it didn't come for a very long time. When the bread did finally arrive, he put it on the table in such a hurry that he didn't even notice that our bread plates had been removed and we had nothing but one used salad plate to put the oil & vinegar on for dipping the bread. Then he left in such a rush that we couldn't flag him to bring fresh bread plates. Each course took a very long time to arrive. My husband had to remind him that we'd ordered wine with dinner (the waiter did pay for our wine since he'd forgotten it - that was nice). When we left, there was no one by the door to thank us for coming. We felt unappreciated.
I went with four other people and everyone got something different, including Bolzano, Glorioso, Zucca and the salmon. I enjoyed the Rosarno with eggplant (a vegetarian option that replaces chicken). The eggplant was perfect, not tough like it can be sometimes. The other people in my party tried the salmon cakes for an appetizer. They all said they were excellent, slightly spicy, because of the Sriracha and jalapeño, but not overly so. We split 3 different desserts, as they are good sized, and we were full, but wanted a treat. The Chipotle brownie with vanilla ice cream was my favorite, although others enjoyed the cheesecake with mixed berries and the Gelato.
I don't like spicy food. Before we went, we asked if items marked as spicy could be made without spice and were told yes. This wasn't correct; food is already seasoned or marinated. Our server was great and did everything she could to get us food that I could eat and found chicken that hadn't been marinated yet. The pasta was wonderful, though.
Nice atmosphere and good service. Pasta is the main feature of this restaurant. I was with a group of 8 and usually do not go to pasta places otherwise. I cannot comment on the quality of the pasta. I tried to find a secondi course that interested me, but they were all done with sweet sauces or some other fancy rendition, e.g., a pork chop stuffed with cheese. Why not just a well prepared pork chop. I chose the shrimp with seafood risotto. The three grilled shrimp were excellent, but there was very little other seafood in the pasta. It was supposed to be "spicy", but it was more sweet than spicy. In the end I found it disappointing. The Caesar salad, however, was excellent. The others in my party mainly had the pasta, of which there are many choices. Nobody commented one way or the other, so I'm not sure what they thought, but nobody raved about the food.
Salad was terrific. Bread was excellent. Both pasta entrees were quite bland, even though my husband asked for a spicy recommendation and took it! Asiago was quite busy but service was fine. But entrees were disappointing, and there are lots of other good Italian restaurants.
This is one of our favorite restaurants in Boise. The food is delicious and the ambiance is good. The Pinot noir we tasted on this last visit was superb for the price. Our server paid us everyexpected attention, we could not have asked for better. Overall a lovely evening with y wife made possible by Asiago.
Been coming here for years with my wife. Food and wine selection have always been fantastic and the price is very reasonable for what you get. She spent time in Italy and says it reminds her of being there. Would recommend to any one that loves authentic Italian food. Need a reservation on weekends because it gets busy.
Ambiance was great. A lovely intimate restaurant. Many menu choice are somewhat spicy. The food was good, but I was looking for a more traditional Italian menu and somewhat surprised to see Italian/ Thai, Italian/ Creole fusion creations. I had the scallops and felt the creole spice overwhelmed the delicate scallops, though the lime risotto was a great compliment. My husband had the lasagne which was excellent. Nice wine choices. Service was excellent and efficient.
The restaurant was extremely busy and appeared understaffed. We waited 20 minutes for our reservation even though tables opened; there were not enough people to clear and set them.
Once we were seated (after being told a table we preferred was "already spoken for"), our server did come over right away to say hello. But when she didn't come back within 10 minutes we left, assuming it would take longer than we were willing to (continue to) wait to get drinks and food.
Everyone at Asiago's was hustling, but there just weren't enough folks working. With so many good dining choices in downtown Boise, there's no need to wait and wait and wait to eat at Asiago's. We went to Owyhee Tavern and had a nice - and fairly expeditious - meal instead.
My husband and I took our moms and dads to the Mother's Day Brunch, and it was fabulous! Usually there are one or two items at a buffet that good and the rest is so-so. But, everything we had was absolutely delicious!....even my finicky father-in-law gave rave reviews. Well done!
It was a very busy evening and they were running behind on reservations getting seated. When we explained we had an event to be at in 45 minutes they made room for us at the bar. The bartender put a rush on our food and we were out in time to make our event. The service was fantastic, friendly, and exceeded our expectations.
Love asiagos, always great services, usually great food. We come here often and I'm not sure what happened Saturday night but all 3 of us were not loving our meals. There were a few bigger groups? So maybe that's why? But I was so happy to bring my mom and sister and raved about how delicious the food is and we were all bummed. Not bad but definatly not my usual experience.
We had our Mothers Day dinner here this year. Our entire party was not pleased with their meals. Some were very bland, and others were overly spicy. Our server did not come around enough and service was slow. Overall just not impressed with our experience. Unfortunately I will not be going back.
