WOW6/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNew findsWe were a group of 4 couples having dinner after sending our kids off to prom.one couple had been coming for years and recommended. We were not disappointed! Everyone loved their food. Service was attentive! We 'll go back again!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPlan to park in a parking garage.Except for the difficulty of finding street parking which appears virtually impossible around 6 pm,
the dining experience was enjoyable. Our waiter was efficient and watchful of our needs (water
glasses refilled), inquiring if we desired after dinner coffee, etc. My wife ordered a Risotto with
sausage which was excellent and I ordered ravioli with sea scallops which were delightful. The
bar area was crowded with what appeared to be a large group of loud businessmen such that if
one was seeking a romantic evening dining experience, it would not have been at Assagio.
Would we return? Probably, but on a weekend night when rush hour traffic would not occur.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMNice elegant restaurant withNice elegant restaurant with excellent food and exceptional service.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLocal SeattleiteAnother special and predictably outstanding dining experience at Assaggios. We had out of town guests and they thoroughly enjoyed dinner. There were six of us, 3 had pasta and 3 Copper River salmon, one of their nightly specials. Every dish was incredible. We entertain often and Assaggios is a restaurant we always leave fully satisfied. The service was exceptional and owner/chef Mauro is a wonderful host. You'll never be disappointed.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMMauro makes it fun!This is a restaurant you should not pass up!! The food, the vibe.........and Mauro!

They made it just we used to get in NY. No fancy way with a new spin on it ,
Just a true traditional Italian meal. And being Italian born in raised in NY this is the
best compliment to a restaurant.

It is open late which was good for us this time as we got off the plane, dropped our bags at our apartment and then went to dinner, quite nice.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible experience. OurIncredible experience. Our server was extremely knowledgeable and attentive. He must have overheard me and one of my tablemates say let's split the gnocci and lamb shank. We each were served separate dishes for each item already divided up in the kitchen. I personally have never experienced that kind of service before without having to ask. The food as always was stupendous. I still can't believe how ample the portions were for the lamb shank. Go! Get! Enjoy!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and wine list.Great food and wine list. Be sure to ask for off menu items. Definitely will come back.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMA great place for Italian!Bustling yet friendly atmosphere. Quick, efficient and knowledgeable service. Delicious food and good portion sizes. Owner engaged, friendly and welcoming.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest Seattle ExperienceThe main courses were exceptional. Our party had a chicken special, the lamb shank, salmon, and beef. The appetizers were OK but we were trying something new so probably not to our taste. The service was unparalled. We were greeted and seated right away even though we were 30 minutes early. The waiter was very knowledgable and friendly. The food was served hot and in very short order. The owner came by the table several times and chatted and made us feel welcome. A bonus was there was parking right next door ($6.00 for the evening). Definately on our list to revisit this gem.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding1st time to visit. Outstanding on all features. Special touch with owner greeting all tables. Looking forward to visiting again.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were visiting Seattle overWe were visiting Seattle over the weekend and were staying next door at Hotel Andra. We have stayed at Hotel Andra on several occasions but have never been to Assiaggo. Well, we will definitely be back. The place has a great energy and the staff are all very friendly.

Next time we would travel a lot farther to go to this restaurant.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and serviceThis is our first time in Seattle so we relied on reviews from OpenTable to decide where to eat our first night in town.
Assaggio lived up to its reputation. We had excellent service, the food was delicious and came quickly, the host recommended a local Washington state wine, and our experience was fantastic. We are definitely coming back.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, Have been thereOutstanding, Have been there several times and everytime I leave I can't wait to go back.

Started w/carpaccio & grilled portobellos. Both were excellent. Then shared the gnocchi in brown butter. A dream, absolutely fantastic. For mains we had the lamb shank & pork chop. Both were really great, cooked perfectly, tender, and sauces that were amazing. For dessert, we shut it down with the tiramisu. One of the better ones around. I first ate at Assaggio in 2009 and forgot just how good it is. I won't wait so long to go back.2/8/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyWe've been to this restaurant twice now while on vacation in Seattle. This is a very quaint restaurant with delicious Italian food. Seems to be a favorite with the locales. I had a delicious risotto the first time and a lovely seafood dish the second. The wine selection is very nice as well.6/30/2012 12:00:00 AMAuthentic ItalianIn a city that lacks decent authentic Italian food, assiago, if one of the few that does it well.
