Asiago's Restaurant & Wine Bar Restaurant Review

: Asiago's is Boise's first choice for Italian dining downtown. That's surely because there aren't many restaurants advertising their willingness to cook each dish to the customer's liking. Combine this with an economically-priced menu, plus a transformation that turned an ugly duckling into an open, three-room beauty with high ceilings, mixed-media brick and Mediterranean-colored walls framed by wide windows that open in summer months. Unfortunately, the beauty is only skin deep. Order the wrong dish and the food can be mediocre at best and disappointing at worst. Specials such as the house-made, sage-seasoned pork sausage served over fettuccine tossed with creamy pomodoro sauce, and the pork, lamb and artichoke lasagna layered with a buttery caper sauce and a sweet marinara, fail to impress. Stick to the regular menu and choose the linguine with zucchini, broccoli, sweet pepper and red onion with garlic and tomatoes, or the chicken breast with fettuccine and garlic cream and tomato-pesto sauce. For those seeking slimmed-down Italian, Asiago's also offers a low-carb menu. A wine bar and two small party rooms are pluses.

Asiago's is Recommended

The food at Asiago's is wonderful, and as the reviewer states the restaurant has become a "mainstay in Boise" for serving consistent, great food.

I've eaten there many times when traveling to Boise, and the food has only gotten better and more consistent in the last couple of years. The food is anything but mediocre. This restaurant holds its own with top restaurants in any of the big city markets.

I'd recommend Asiago's to anyone who appreciates fresh Italian food that's beyond traditional Italian fare. The atmosphere is comfortable and inviting, and the staff is friendly and knowledgeable--you won't be disappointed.

This restaurant is in downtown Boise. The food is very good. I go there frequently and the taste of the food has improved and is more consistent in flavor. (2008) The Bolzano is outstanding as is the salad L'enigma. One would have to sample several different dishes to find the one that meets their particular taste but in all the taste and presentation is splendid.

The interior is decorated in old Italian colors with unique art work. There are three separate rooms that provide a unique feel. The restaurant provides for casual, formal and romantic experiences. The rooms also provide for special event meals.
