The food was very good and the wine selection is also very good. Enjoyed our meal and you can order off the menu as well which is nice. Restaurant was comfortable and was not overpriced but not cheap given it is in West Hollywood.

Blown away by the food. Ago did not disappoint. Staff was professional and if you want to see stars while eating the best Niochi this side of Italy this is the place. Not only was the hostess, manager and wait staff top notch would you ever think you could see George Clooney, Micky Rourke and Simon Cowell in one place?... More

I went to Ago by myself and the staff treated me like a super star. Impeccable service. Restaurant is a little pricey but the filet mignon is over the top good and once again.... the service was out of this world.

The food was amazing especially the truffle pizza and mushroom risotto. Service was impeccable, never having to ask for water to be refilled. Definitely worth a trip.

I am eternally disappointed by Italian restaurants that serve pasta and sauce. This is what I've been wishing for! Spectacular flavor in sauces, meats, excellent cheeses and truffle-infused dishes. A blessing for a militant foodie like me. I'm sorry to be leaving LA!

The title says it all..... It's a real, high end, Italian restaurant, with all the real Italian food, appetizers, handmade pasta, the real extra thin veal Milanese, fresh seafood, great desserts. High end food, service and prices. You might spot celebrities having dinner there. Go for it!

Starters: Veal ravioli and peach martinis are excellent. Grilled octopus and the mussels were also great. We had a party of four and we all enjoyed our cocktails, appetizers and entrees. Dessert: does not seem to be their strong suit. With the suggestion of the server, we order the white chocolate tort and tri-berries cheesecake and for good measure threw... 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.
