    Dined on 3/4/2014
    Dined here for dinner during Restaurant Week. One of my dining companions noticed immediately that a seafood dish was no longer offered on the Restaurant Week menu. She was very disappointed as this was the entree she had planned to order. I got the Eggplant Rollatini appetizer which was OK. My entree was Stuffed Flounder which was just OK also. My dessert was Biscotti...3 cookies...which were just OK. The other dessert choices were Creme Brulee which I don't care for and Ricotta Pie which I don't care for also. My dining companion got the veal dish which was a heavily breaded piece of veal obscured by a large amount of some sort of greenery which we couldn't figure out. My friend did not care for it nor for the presentation. Mediocre.

    My husband and I received a gift certificate to Assaggio! for Christmas. We were greeted most cordially when we arrived. Our server was pleasant, helpful with suggestions, and thorough. The dining room has a nice, cozy ambience. Most importantly, our dinners- seafood pescatore for me and shrimp & linguine w/ mushrooms and pesto for my husband - were DELICIOUS!! Perfectly cooked and large portions. During the meal, the owner came to our table to thank us for coming and we had a brief, friendly chat with her. Lovely touch. We were so pleased with our dining experience that we recently purchased some Assaggio! gift certificates for our pastors.

    The décor and ambiance we very nice, the service was excellent; our waiter was attentive without being a nuisance. We tried the calamari with peppers and marinara sauce. The only complaint with that was the sauce was served on the calamari instead of as a dipping sauce which made the breading soggy. The tomato tower was a nice surprise; I bet it's really good when the Jersey tomatoes are in season. I ordered one of the dinner specials; grilled chicken with shrimp over angel hair in a rosa sauce. Sounds good, and I bet it would have been had the chef decided to leave out the Sambucca. All in all it was an okay dinning experience but, I am not writing the place off just yet; my wife and I will try it again.

    I just want to say what a wonderful time we had at Assiago. The service was fully attentive to our needs which by the way there were 10 of us. The atmosphere was comfortable, beautiful, and relaxed. The food was amazing. I had the sesame crusted tuna and it was absolutely delicious. Everyone had veal or pasta and there wasn't one complaint. They loved their meals. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to everyone who enjoys a total eating experience.

    The food and service was outstanding. If you want freshly prepared Italian food this place is for you. I would recommend Assaggio for any occasion. The quantity of food was just right. The quality was better then we expected. An added surprise was when we were personally thanked by the owner for stopping in to try them out. (This is Something that you don't see enough of). The veal franchaise was perfect and did I mention it had chunks of crab meat. My wife had the seafood pastatore - a nothing amazing dish with homemade pasta.

    Assagio is a great little Italian restaurant! Service was excellent with friendly staff! Food was terrific! Well priced! Assagio is right on Rte. 30 about 12 miles west of Atlantic CIty. I would strongly suggest stopping by on the way to AC, or even going there if staying in AC. It is well worth the travel!

    My sister-in-law and I went to Assaggio's for Thanksgiving dinner. We both ordered turkey and it was excellent. It was rolled breast with a delicious stuffung. The homemade pumpkin raisin bread was excellent as well as the butternut squash soup (not quite as rich as other places - which was nice given the large dinner ahead). Sweet potato was excellent. I found the green beans a little to al dente. The mashed potatoes and the pumpkin pie were a little on the bland side. But, overall good food and a very enjoyable experience. Nice wine selection also.

    This restaurant was a little difficult to find as our GPS sent us to an automotive store. But once we did find it, we were in for an outstanding dining experience. The service was impeccible and the food was wonderful. I had the veal francese with crabmeat which was the best veal I have ever had. My wife had the pasta with mussels and she was delighted with her dish as well. We even had a delightful conversation with the owner of the establishment. We would highly recommend Assaggio!

    We had previously dined at this location when it was Tré Figlo and liked it very much. Upon learning that the restaurant had changed ownership (and unwilling to dine at the overpriced and underwhelming casino options) we decided to give it a try. Assaggio was wonderful! Our server, Meghan, was charming and attentive. The food was delicious (even though the menu is a little limited) and there was even live music! We would put Assaggio in our regular dining rotation if it was a little closer...we're about 40 minutes away...but we will definitely be returning.

    This place gets better and better every time we go. They were accommodating allow us to share plates for the Apps, Salad course, and Pasta Course. Then I was able to order a special they advertised through email earlier in the week and the chef was happy to make it for me. The topper: The Boo Martini! what an inventive idea for a dessert Martini. Assaggio is always inventive with their menu, dishes, wine list and creative Martini. the shame of it is we only visit in the summer and live too far away to frequent but when we are in town, that's our spot. Thank you also to the server Megan whom was spectacular taking care of us.

    Assaggio has a really friendly neighborhood vibe , even though it is on a busy highway. The owner Mary comes around to all the tables to make sure you are enjoying yourself. The food is good, the pasta is homemade but on our last visit it was a little tough. their veal is very good and cooked perfectly. The plates always come out nice and hot. Great cocktails and good service make this a restaurant to revisit.

    My husband and I were staying in the area and my parents were going to be joining us for dinner. We were looking for a nice place to try. We read some reviews about Assaggio! and decided to go there. We were not disappointed! We went for a very early dinner and we had the place to ourselves for most of our meal. The staff was super friendly, and our waitress was very attentive. The food was really fantastic. The food definitely tasted homemade and the ambiance was nice too. One of the great things was that they offered a "taste" portion of the pasta which was a nice option. We were very happy with our overall experience and would certainly go again if we were in the area!

    From the outside Assaggio did not look impressive. My group considered finding another place to dine. I convinced them to at least go inside before making a final decision. When we walked through the door we found a small, quiet, uncrowded, charming dining room and bar area. The hostess was friendly and seated us immediately. The restaurant had a comfortable, casual ambience. The menu is a bit limited, so you may want to check it out before you go. Two people in our party ordered the grilled pork chop which was delicious! Our server was very attentive and the whole staff very friendly. We would return.
