For as long as I have been travelling to or through LA, I visit Ago. The legendary Robert de Niro Italian eatery still packs a punch. Over the years, it has moved from older Italian waiters in black ties to younger hip staff. The ambience now includes a covered outside eating area. The food still remains authentically Italian - simple... More

Had a great dinner at Ago Sat 10/23/16. The wine list, the service, the entrees. We loved the patio too. We'll be back, thanks.

Ago is an attractive well designed restaurant with a courteous and efficient staff. Only the food falls short. The tomatoes in the Caprese salad were not up to par. A Cesar Salad with chicken was also substandard, bland and with dried out chicken. The Burrata was too chilled when served and the risotto was just okay. In short Ago falls... More

Group celebrating a 50 th birthday. The food was average and the service was a little cool and arrogant. Nothing to justify the expensive prices. I would not recommend as too many other restaurants who are pleased to see new customers.

Ago is one of my favorite restaurants in Los Angeles. The food is very good and the service is impeccable. Denis was our waiter on Saturday and he is from Florence. He guided us through the menu and we selected their specials pasta of the day, which was mozzarella stuffed ravioli in a pink sauce with eggplant. I may be... More

Staying in West Hollywood

Neighbourhood Profile
West Hollywood
For years, West Hollywood has been known as a hub for the LGBT communities in Los Angeles. Today it still maintains the title, but has also become the “it” neighborhood for the entertainment industry’s up-and-comers. Producers, directors, writers and aspiring actors call this area home. Known for great boutique shopping, vintage clothing stores, home décor shops and fitness studios, West Hollywood is a grid of wide boulevards and narrow residential streets. The neighborhood also has a concentration of the most avant-garde restaurants in Los Angeles (rivaled only by the burgeoning restaurant scene Downtown). A trip to the iconic Sunset Strip, with its many clubs, music venues, hotels and flashing lights won’t be forgotten.
