After a brief delay, Agostino's Italian Restaurant opened its doors this Monday, November 28, at 130 Ludwig Drive in Fairview Heights, Illinois. This is the successor to Agostino's Chesterfield location, which closed last year due to an eminent-domain claim.
(Owner John Agostino Gabriele told Gut Check previously that the Gabriele family would continue to seek another west county location. The original Agostino's opened on the Hill in 1967.)
Agostino's is open from 5-10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and 5 p.m.-midnight Friday and Saturday. For more information, visit the restaurant's website or call 618-394-1800.
