It was a good experience. The service was great, the food was good and the price was reasonable. If you live in Boise you should check it out. My wife and I had dinner at Asiago's and had enough to get leftovers to take home and eat on the next day.

I had been to Asiago's once before and did not have a great time. In hindsight, I attribute this to our waiter who must have been having a terrible day because he was not friendly, kind or attentive. This really effected our experience and I was not sure I would go back. However, we went back for Mother's Day because they were the only restaurant that had a reservation at the last minute. Turns out we had a WONDERFUL time! The food was terrific, server was WONDERFUL and my Mom had a great time too.

We went for mother's day dinner and waited 2 hours before the food was served. They compted us 40 dollars in gift cards and one of the 6 meals we ordered.

We had Mother's Day brunch. The food was good, the downside was that there were limited pasta selections which I unfortunately is the primary reason for going to Asiago's. There were 4 of us, two kids under 17 and two adults. Our bill was $116 which is high for brunch, two glasses of wine and orange juice. Service was great as usual, good is tasty, and the location is great.

The brunch years ago was much better. More choices and much better overall. The desserts were lackluster, and there were only 4 to choose from. I would only recommend this place for dinner with their regular menu, not Mother's Day brunch.
Great Mother's Day Brunch
We went to Asiago's for Mother's Day Brunch. It was definitely a protein-rich brunch, but everything was really good!
Mother's Day at Asiago's.
We arrived a little late but the doors had not opened yet. The staff was very helpful and ready to serve but seemed a little behind on seating. The outdoor street side area was not ready and that was where we wanted to sit. We had two young girls and did not want to be too disruptive if they started acting up. This was the only negative for the whole meal. the food was fantastic and they had a very nice selection for the brunch buffet. Two people with one mojito came to $68. A little expensive but for a special occasion it was worth it. The wait staff was prompt and very attentive. The atmosphere was clean and comfortable.
Friendly service, great atmosphere and outdoor seating was great but the food was even better. My husband and I love it for a date night.
Best Italian in the City
Asiago's has moderate pricing, large portions and amazing fresh hot bread! The wine list is not to shabby either. Love the paper on the tables, brick on the walls and the rustic feel. I will definitely be booking more groups in the future.
Everyone enjoyed their choices for dinner.
Although slow, since they had a large party in the private room, we were not in a hurry so it was fine. Food was very good and everyone loved what they ordered. The servings are very reasonable....not skimpy and not overwhelming!
This is the second time I've been to Asiago's. Both times there was a little longer wait for my server to come to the table. After that, the service was very good. The menu has a nice variety of beef, chicken and seafood. Also very tasty and innovative salads. The pear and arugula was very good. My entrée, an encrusted filet with smashed potatoes, one of the specials, was very good. The meat was cooked just to the right temperature (medium, as I requested). The crusted spices on the meat could have been just a touch more flavorful, but was tasty. It's a nice place to go for dinner while downtown. The last time I was there was for lunch. It is a great place for that. After the initial wait, my server was very attentive.
granted, it was prom night, which i wasn't aware of when making reservations. we didn't get served until an over an hour after the reservation. pretty disappointed that the restaurant wasn't prepared for it. good food, just unprepared for the evening.
Food is always great as is the service.

Menu needs work.
The pastas should be grouped by sauces. Some how the pasta selections take time to read and compare. Italian sausage lacked color. Garlic was great!
We enjoyed our dinner very much. The menu selection was extensive and made us wish we could try many different items. The food was good and so was the service.Nice wine list. Great evening.

Wonderful selection and beautifully presented food!
Asiago 's does a great job in all categories. Quiet, simple setting. The classic brick adds an "old world" feel. Adequate wine list, great bread. Special entrees every night. Good value for the experience.
Would not go back for a brunch
We would go back for dinner, but not for brunch at Asiago's. This was Easter brunch, but there was no ham. The other meats were okay, but not very hot. There was only one kind of salad. The potatoes were hard and barely warm. The biscuits did not seem fresh. The "desserts' consisted of some hard, dried out scones, some type of bread, and some type of chocolate. I took one of the last pieces of the chocolate, and a bit later my husband went to get one, only to find none because no more had been brought out. About 10 minutes later, the chocolate dessert was finally refilled.
Great little place!
Last minute reservation on Easter Sunday and they had a spot for us! Wasn't sure what to expect from an Italian restaurant at brunch but I was pleasantly surprised! Yummy!
Great Food, poor service
Server drinks when he brought menus. Worse still, he never brought bread, which is very important to an Italian meal. When this was brought to his attention, his only response was, "Oops, I guess I blew that one." No apology, no offer of adjustment on the check, no attempt to make it right. I might try Asiago's again because the food is excellent, but the service had better be much better if I'm to become a regular.

Was concerned about some recent reviews as i had not been here in a while but decided that as a business person that deals with ratings that i know happy customers hardly say anything and unhappy customers are quick to complain, the food was as good as my favorite Italian restaurant in san francisco from beginning to desert and service was outstanding, nothing i could fault and would gladly recommend Asiago's to anyone.. A true local family Gem is alive and well in Boise..

Great food everytime. Good wine list and the food menu is quite large.
A Place for Friends
Asiago's is a place we love to bring friends. It's fine if they've been there before, but we love introducing folks to this special place. Need food prepared in a special way? Ask. Some friends asked if garlic could be omitted from a dish. The waitress was very knowledgeable about the food prep and pointed out which dishes could be made without garlic. The wait staff is attentive without being intrusive. I'm still eating my way through the menu, but haven't found a dish, appetizer, or dessert that I would't recommend. If your idea of Italian dinning is pizza and franchise restaurant Italian dishes, I'd recommend that you check out the menu on Asiago's website before you go. I also highly recommended that you use Open Table for your reservations (and you'll want reservations).

The service was impeccable! We brought in 7 kids and they accommodated shells and cheese and Shirley Temples. The food was very decadent. Great wine selection. We'll be back.
Great experience, but a bit dark
Had a great experience, but the lighting was very dim. The food was good, not sure what it looked like though...
Asiagos used to be a special occasion for me, the food and service are still good unfortunately Asiagos like many restaurants are cramming in more tables. This makes it feel more crowded and less intimate, its louder and feels crammed. This has made me not want to return.
We are long time (over 13 years) Asiago's fans, dating back to the Cole location. I was really bummed that for Valentine's Saturday they squeezed a ton of 2 seat tables into their normal space to increase capacity. Sitting RIGHT next to another couple is incredibly uncomfortable and not why we chose Asiago's in the first place. I can't imagine Sandy have a valentines meal at one of those tables, it's unfortunate she asked her customers to sit through it. On top of that the prime rib was not good and the price was silly considering the servings and ambiance.
Could have been better!!!
Food was just ok!! Our server was scattered and not very attentive. I would not recemond this dinning experience to anyone.
Slow. Slow. Slow.
Slow service. Long wait for food. Wasn't busy at all but servers were rare. Small portions for large price. $10 extra for 3 small shrimp? Really?
Great all around spot!
My wife and I went to Asiago's for her birthday dinner and had a great time! The staff were all very friendly and gave us space, while keeping us stocked with food and drinks. The atmosphere was great for a romantic night away from the usual stressors too.
Best Italian restaurant in the Boise valley
I have dined at Asiago's Italian restaurant twice in the past month. I literally crave their food all the time. Their bread is second to none as well as their lasagna. I love their Caesar salad and our waiter was just wonderful. I absolutely can't wait to go back!
Compared to my visit in August,service was fair, food was okay, the employees just don't seem to care.
We got there at 6:45 on a Tuesday and the place was half empty however, they claimed they were busy. They made us wait 15 minutes to seat us at a table that sat empty the whole time we waited. It is super cramped. The food itself was just OK nothing too spectacular. I probably would not go here again.
Hit or miss
I have had some good experiences at Asiago's, but the service was not good on my most recent trip. A server did not come to our table after we were seated. After about 20 minutes, I finally flagged down another server and someone came to our table about 5 minutes after that explaining there was some confusion about whose table we were. We didn't get our food for more than 30 minutes after ordering it. The food was good, but not worth the wait. The server was very apologetic and did give us free desserts, but the overall experience was quite negative given how long we had to wait for things.
Always great Italian
My wife and I love Asiago's! We can always find great food here that works with our vegetarian diet, and it is always freshly made and always delectable. We love the ambiance and the fact that it is cozy and. Well priced. We love to take friends and family from out of town here.
The service made the restaurant
Went there for a "date night" with the wife. The server was fantastic, personable and knew her stuff. We appreciated that. The wife ordered the salmon and I had a pasta dish. She doesn't like the rice or risotto, so she doubled up on the veggies. When it came out, the salmon was kind of fishy and overcooked, and there was a small serving of some kind of vegetable that I had a hard time making out. My pasta, the one with the mushrooms, was just OK, with a lot of pasta and a small amount of mushrooms and the sausage the waitress suggested. It too wasn't very good. Wine was great, waitress was great, the food, not up to par.
Help me give you five stars!
My husband and I dined here Saturday night prior to seeing a show. I want to give Asiago's five stars, but just a couple of things are lacking. We were seated in the back room - a nice brick space with wine bottles covering one wall; however, it could use some art on the walls and - this is a big issue for me - please light the candles! I could see probably a dozen candles, but only two were lit (I think that they were the battery operated kind - but fine with me). Please, please, please light the candles, which provide such a nice ambiance. Both of our dishes were yummy and I liked the wine selection. We will definitely return - and hope to see a little more ambiance to make the back room as nice as the other rooms. Thanks!
Good food, but...
For some reason the restaurant was very cold; maybe it was because we were against the windows, but we kept our coats on through dinner. There was a very long delay between our soups and main course; no explanation, just a long time.
