Very comfortable dining rooms, and a seasonal outdoor area, and room. Authentic Italian food...the owner is the main chef. Mary...the chef's wife is at the front desk...she's very welcoming. Very nice bar area too.

Not to my knowledge. Agio has a fine wine list with a variety for every taste and wallet. If you have a special wine for a specific occasion, I would call and ask explaining your circumstances.
