What a great find! Had seen write-ups for this restaurant in our local newspaper for several years now, and decided to try it ourselves. Fairly large menu, and weekly specials change constantly. They also have seasonal dishes here, a nice surprise. Portions are plenty large; sauce/gravy is authentic. Very nice local spot, tucked behind other local businesses in a min-mall on route 35N. Plenty of off-street parking. One floor, so easy access for handicapped and children. Also host Frank Sinatra singing nights. Give this place a try; you'll be pleasantly surprised!

This has become our go-to restaurant when looking for good Italian food, reasonably priced, without needing reservations too far in advance, although I would not recommend walking in on a weekend without a backup restaurant in mind. You may get in, or you may not, but they will try their best to accommodate you. Sometimes, they get large parties and that ties their hands. I always try to make a reservation, even if for same day. They are on OpenTable. The menu has all the standard Italian dishes. The pork chops and lamb chops are outstanding. The penne with Calamari and Shrimp is delicious, but make sure you order the fish sauteed. They also offer specials which are also very good. I would recommend this BYOB gem

Restaurant decor is very appealing. Woman who greeted us was rude. We had a 6:30 reservation. She said "Here's your table. I have people coming 8:00." We waited about 10 minutes for someone to open our bottles of wine. The waitress opened one of two bottles. We had a bottle of white and a bottle of red wine. We waited for the waitress to return and when she didn't, we asked for someone to open the other bottle. Again, the same woman who greeted us replied rudely. She was also annoyed because because we asked for a glass of ice for my friend who wanted it for her red wine and a bucket of ice to keep the white wine chilled. Fortunately, the waitress who served us was very nice. The service is very slow but not the fault of the wait staff. The restaurant was filled to capacity.
The bruschetta was very salty and served on very soggy bread. Our appetizers arrived 7:15 and our meals were served 7:45. Makes me wonder where the people coming 8:00 were seated since we were eating our dinner at that time.My husband's scallops and shrimp were very salty so he didn't enjoy it. The rest of us enjoyed our meals. We didn't have dessert.
I got the feeling that restaurant guests who are regulars are treated well. Newcomers like us were not. That's too bad because maybe we would have become regulars and recommend this restaurant to others.
Obviously, we're not.

Our only negative is that two members of our party arrived early and was seated to wait for the rest of us. When we arrived we were seated elsewhere in the restaurant and were not told that our two guests were already in the restaurant. After 15 minutes we called our friends and they said they were in the restaurant for half an hour. The restaurant should have been more careful to make sure each portion of our group was aware the other people had already arrived.

Food, service as always was excellent.

We had been here before and it was always a very good meal for the money. However, we dined there this past Saturday night and it was nothing short of horrible. From the appetizer to both the entrees. The calamari was mushy and over salted. The past dish was not edible because of the salt content and over cooked pasta. The chicken was tasteless. Our service on the other hand, was very good. We will not be back

Assaggini is an undiscovered gem. Hidden in a nondescript strip mall, it’s a charming delight. The restaurant is lovely and the service attentive and enthusiastic. The menu is old school Italian American (stuffed artichokes!). Although you won’t find many surprises, the food is well made and flavorful. One modest misstep was an appetizer of roasted peppers and anchovies. It appeared to be a small jar of peppers upended on a plate with 4 anchovy fillets surrounding it. It was not on the level of the other dishes. However, the rest of the meal was very satisfying. Save room for their desserts!

Arrived around 8:30 on Saturday Sept 9th. Server greet was not bad around 10 minutes. Seated along back booth area. Server took order around 8:45 which included salads. Came back to our table at 9:05 and asked what we ordered again?? Had to give her order again and waited another 14 minutes for salads. Meals came around 9:35pm. I ordered the vodka sauce chicken parmesan. Received regular chicken parm. Did not want to send back at this point. Overall just not a good experience. Usually better.

We have eaten here before however this time the owner/manager was very rude. We had a reservation for 6:30 and arrived at 6:25. At this time the place was fairly empty. We asked for 1 side of the restaurant and she proceeded to put us on the other. We asked to move and she mumbled that we were only 3 but both tables were 4 tops. We were rushed through our food and although she stopped by every other table she ignored us completely. We did nothing wrong and we were no treated nicely. Won’t be going back.
