Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I've been to Augellos a number of times over the years and never been disappointed. The meals were a good size, the waiting staff were attentive without being overbearing and I thought for what it was it was reasonably priced. For a Monday night it was certainly busy, which is always a good sign. Just be careful of parking, there are time restrictions in the side streets. Happy to recommend.

I asked for a well cooked crispy base pizza but no it came as they wanted to deliver it and was not crispy at all. Annoying. However the topping was good (I had the Vegetarian Option). My friends also had pizza and they enjoyed it. I was just disappointed with the non crispy base. It can be extremely busy due to the nearby cinema.

Went for dinner with 2 girlfriends. Service and food were very good. Booked for 7pm and 8.45 were told the restaurant would be closing at 9pm. The restaurant was very busy. This is not told to customers at time of booking. Only in Melbourne is this happening! How boring have we become. When asked why we were told that people tend to come earlier these days and they are still experiencing staff shortages because of COVID. How long will it before we stop blaming everything on COVID and the Ukraine War!!! Restaurants have significantly increased their prices and then we have sitting times or shorter opening hours. People are supporting the restaurants and that is the thanks they get. No sympathy for restaurants again!!!

We went to Augello for a family lunch. The restaraunt was fairly empty with only a few tables occupied. When we arrived we realised one of the water glasses was dirty and needed to be changed. Later when we ordered, we asked for a child serve of carbonara. When it arrived they gave us an adult serve. I explained we had asked for a child serve and the waiter said they would only throw it out so we should keep it. I asked if we were paying for a child serve and were told that we would,have to pay for the adult serve. I asked what the manager said and then the waiter removed the adult serve and brought back the food in a child serve ! It was cold by then. We requested some extra cheese which was not given to us. When our coffee was brought to us, the waiter spilt a third of it,on the table . He just wiped it with a napkin and left. Previously we had good food and service at Augellos and despite the restaraunt being quiet I was surprised at how poor the service was. I will no longer be recommending this restaraunt in the future

We have been visiting this restaurant since it opened but tonight's experience has put us off returning. The food was, as usual, fine. However, though seated at the back of the restaurant away from open doors (not by request), we were constantly annoyed by flies and small insects, especially around the food and drinks. I mentioned this to the waitress who instantly said that they sprayed regularly. When I mentioned the problem to the girl at the desk while paying, she said that as some customers liked the fresh air it was inevitable that there would be flies and insects. Further, she said that as it was so hot, they needed the doors open: I checked on my phone and told her that it was 17 degrees outside. Her response was "Whatever you like - you can see the manager". We were so disgusted, we left. We have never previously had the problem of either insects or poor customer service. We may never return.

Excellent service in the time of COVID! Great food as always - the gnocchi is always amazing and I can never go past the papalina sauce. My husband had the spaghetti marina which had some of the most delicious seafood that he has had in a very long time. Excellent wine list too.

Augellos serves consistently good food and we especially love their pasta and pizza. When dining in the service is excellent, nice quiet ambience. We are so glad that they offer a take away service in this time of social distancing!!

My wife had eaten here before for a staff "get together" for dinner. When I suggested dining here, her first comment was "when you book, make sure to ask whether the big screen TV will be off, if it's on for the footy it will ruin the evening for us". Fortunately, despite dining on a Friday night, the TV was not on as the tables immediately below the TV had been booked (and I suspect because Richmond were not playing). We ordered garlic bread (actually pizza based), 2 calamari entrees , 1 carbonara and 1 prawn and crab, both with penne. All the food was cooked well and the portions were ample. My wife's main course had 10 good sized prawns in it and there was plenty of bacon and creamy sauce in my meal. the restaurant was full but the service was good. All in all a pleasant dinner in a relaxed atmosphere.

Picked this restaurant only as it was close to where some overseas friends were staying. It was so good we will travel up to it again. Fresh, fresh pasta, prima pizza base with copious topping, loaded bruschetta, and beautiful barramundi. Staff were very attentive and never interrupted our conversation, discreetly refilling our water and clearing away dishes, we could have been in a white tablecloth silver service restaurant. Top marks to staff and management for tracing them so well. If that’s not enough we were pleasantly surprised with a very reasonable bill.

The long opening hours and convenient location close to the Balwyn Cinema are just part of the reasons for loving this restaurant. The pizzas are fabulous and there is an excellent wine list. We enjoy coming here with friends.

The staff are very personable and efficient at Augellos - and the meal was lovely. My friend and I had been to a movie at the Balwyn Cinema (just further up Whitehorse road) and decided to have lunch here. We both commented on the ‘covid-safe distance’ of tables which made it more enjoyable having a conversation without eavesdropping on others! There’s a good variety of Italian fare on the menu - we had one of the specials of the day: pumpkin, spinach and ricotta cannelloni which was delicious. It was also a very generous serve. Extensive wine list and very reasonable priced wines by the glass.

My friends and I went for dinner. Terrible service, cocktails terrible and owner encouraging everyone to leave so she didn’t have to pay staff. It was 9pm. Garlic pizza shocking- they use a garlic sauce. Horrendous. Pasta okay. Won’t be going back. Over rated.

My Daughter and my husband planned our lunch, it was a surprise for me. She wanted a dessert that was not featured on the online menu. Augello's staff were so thoughtful, even packed some icecream to go. They also added a bottle of bubbly and some chocolates, what a delight. Thank you Augello's you helped make my day quite lovely.

Great service - actually got quite busy on a Saturday lunch. They opened up slightly ely when they saw some people writing. Great food. Not huge portion sizes, but full of flavour and well made. Lovely pizzas, pastas and desserts. Fairly extensive drinks list as well. Definitely will go again.
