Asiago's Ratings and Reviews
Normally we have a pretty good experienc ...
Normally we have a pretty good experience but this particular evening was a sum of issues. First - Noise: Not really on Asiago's but there were two large parties that seemed to be competing to see who could be the loudest - the noise was deafening. That combined with the screaming infant behind us nearly caused us to walk out. I have kids too but Asiago's is not the place to bring them.
Second - Service - Salads: Normally not an issue but for a second visit in a row (same server) we had salad trouble. In our previous visit, I did not get my salad at all. This time they were both very late and the entree was delivered before either of us finished the salads. Need bigger tables if they are going to do that...
Third - Food: I will start by saying this is out of the ordinary. We go to Asiago's a lot and it is normally very good. This time they may have just been off.... My Rosarno was just blah, my wife's dish was supposed to be spicy and was not and my son's dish was not supposed to be spicy and was VERY spicy - he could not eat it...
Finally - Redemption (of sorts): We were seated quickly even though we had a last minute change (thanks OpenTable). As always, the server was pleasant and accommodating. Drinks were topped in a timely manner. My son's dish was removed from the bill and after one of the two parties mentioned above left, the noise was manageable. The calamari appetizer was the highlight of the meal with the two sauces and the wine was good. This experience by itself will not prevent us from returning to Asiago's as they do have a good track record overall.
Foot Note - Still no Crab Cakes :( also - tried the Salmon cakes when they had them - not a fan.

The location is easy to find & was close to where we were going later. Hours open good. Parking is good Pricing is fair. Food is good. The staff overall were friendly. My only critique is: When we arrived, me mentioned it was our 1st time there. At no time did our server explain anything unique to Asiago. For example-He said he had to leave our table as the hot bread was ready. We had no idea what he was talking about. He brings back a hot loaf of bread. Sets it on the brown paper table cover along w/ 2 bottles & a bowl . By tasting, the bottles we found them to be olive oil & balsamic vinegar, the shaved item was some kind of cheese-I think Parmesan, but Asiago would have fit w/ the restaurant name. Now I have had bread dipped in oil/vinegar, at other restaurants, but...he could have explained to us what it was & why it is special to this restaurant. Was it Asiago cheese? Is it organic, made just for them? How does this make the dining experience unique to them? This is a real opportunity to show the specialty of Asiago's. I think you are missing an opportunity to wow your customers. Think of it as this person knows nothing about Asiago's & build from there. Think about ways to get customers back. There was no incentive to return. I left feeling like we were nothing special to them, we just were someone who stopped in. Interestingly, we tried to make a reservation the week before but were told no tables were open. The person answering the phone made no attempt to offer any other days or times. We went on line & found no times not available. Not sure of this disconnect.

Our server was BEYOND amazing. It was prom night and the place was super busy, but he treated us like we were the only ones there. The food was DECADENT . It was like you were physically experiencing every emotion a tastebud could have. We can't wait to come back

Asiago's continues to produce food that is at the top of the list. The quality parallels food we ate while in Italy and in some cases exceeded. Asiago's is not perfect but I haven't found a restaurant in Boise that is perfect nor anywhere we have traveled. In my opinion I don't think there is a restaurant in Boise that exceeds the quality and flavor of the food and in many cases falls short. It's a great place.

My Wife and I found the menu fit both of our individual taste in Italian food. Wine was a excellent choose by our waiter, she was knowledgeable, timely, and very pleasant. Both dishes where prepared well, warm when served, with fresh and rich taste if that makes sense to you. We will make this place a regular for not only ourselves but guest as well.

Our experience overall was very positive. Our food was good, however, the hamburger I ordered was a little peppery for my taste. Service was good ... We did not feel rushed through our meal. Plenty of time to socialize.

It was a good place to come, but the people were loud and the food cost over $60 and I didn't even eat everything because I didn't like the viggies my meal was over $35 and I just wish to have my money back it was supposed to be a nice Anniversary dinner but it wasn't.

Great food, and a variety of gluten-free options. I had guests from out of town, and they all thought it was great (even those from the big cities). The service was slow, however, and not very attentive. Our bread wasn't delivered to the table until just before we ate. We finished our wine, and nobody asked whether we wanted more. Their excuse was a big wedding party.

A friend (and apparently, prior server from your first establishment on Cole) raves about Asiago's from the owners to the ambiance to the food, wine & deserts. She was right! I was impressed after our first visit, and continue to find top notch service and excellent food.

Food is always very yummy. Love the bread and fixings to start. Service is pleasant and relaxed. We went there late and did not feel rushed to finish. Try something new each time because all the sauces have been to die for.

There was only one disappointing part of our meal. My wife and I both ordered the smoked tri-tip for our main dish. It was cooked just right. Unfortunately the quality of the meat itself was poor. It was tough and chewy. No chef in the world can do much with low quality ingredients - especially beef. So it appears that quality control is the issue.

We come here for occasions - or not. Great go to "nice dinner" place for any time.
Pretty Good as always but had salad trouble. I ordered a Caesar which in the past has been great but this time I did not get to find out - it never made it to the table.
They did of course adjust the ticket. Still no Crab Cakes though... :(

We enjoyed everything about the restaurant and would highly recommend it. My daughter in law has a lot of food allergies and our server was more than helpful in trying to find her something she could have! We loved it so much we bought a $100 certificate for a friend. I am not sure of the name of our waiter but we were there on Thursday evening the 28th of July at 6pm. 4 adults and 1 little girl and we sat right by the window.

This is one of our favorite downtown restaurants. Food is exceptional. Service is attentive but not overbearing. If you can, save yourself for the tiramisu dessert. It is the best in town.
Great wine list and the house Sangiovese is very decent. Can't go wrong here.
