“Delicious dining!”
Reviewed 16 July 2014

We had been told to try Augies by many locals and finally did about two months ago. We have been back a few times since. The atmosphere is a little cramped, but since the original building burned down, we're ok with sitting close to our fellow diners. We have gone each time with our 5 year old daughter. The staff are very professional and kind to our daughter. The meal begins with fresh, warm bread. The plates are family size but they will accommodate making a smaller plate for a child if you ask (when she doesn't want to share our meal they will make her pasta with butter or sauce). The food is phenomenal. We haven't eaten anything we don't love. There are numerous authentic Italian specials each day to select from. There is always food left over for at least one more meal at home and the prices are reasonable (especially based on the amount of food you get). I highly recommend Augies to any Italian food lover!

“Italian food”
Reviewed 22 June 2014 via mobile

Went to augie's for our mom's birthday. The food was very good although there wasn't many options for vegetarians. Most of the dishes contain meat. I would like to see a few more dishes with vegetables.

“Amazing Food”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

My family love to order Augies when a bunch of us get together. The food is absolutely delicious and because it is family style it feeds 4 of us easily. It is worth the money. I would just advise calling early for your dinner and definitely take out, as the restaurant itself is pretty small and crowded.

“Great food”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The food is great, love the variety and the portion size. The atmosphere is nice but the tables are very close together, not a lot of space in between. Beverages, in my opinion, are very pricey - even ordering milk for my kids was ridiculously priced. Next time they get water!

“Good Family Style Eats, Great Value”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

My colleagues and I dropped in to Augie's for dinner on a Thursday evening. The place was packed and having no reservation we had to wait nearly 45 minutes. Their bar is very small but the six of us ordered drinks and waited. Family style means you order an entree and it feeds 3 to 4 people. We ordered two and still had leftovers! Don't be fooled by the prices because you need to take into account the size of the entrees. The cost for the six of us for dinner (drinks not included) was less than 12 bucks! The service was good but not great. The restaurant was noisy because it caters to large groups and there were several there that night. I give this a very good rating based mainly on the value!
