Very disappointed based on the reviews I read. My wife had the pasta pomodoro with shrimp that had a bad taste to them. I had the eggplant parm over spaghetti. The worst eggplant I have ever eaten. The server was not attentive to the table as our drinks remained empty the entire meal. $149 wasted.

Overall it was very good but with a bit of improvement it could have been excellent. We had to eat upstairs which meant we could not hear the live music and probably caused the food to be less then hot.
Maybe they could send the live music upstairs via a audio system and install a food elevator or provide insulted containers for the trip upstairs.

Responded on February 18, 2020

Thank you for taking the time for giving us a review with 4 stars. We have live music downstairs every Friday and Saturday, maybe you can come one of those days? I did try to have an engineer figure out a food elevator, but it wan't feasible. The insulated containers do seem like a very good idea. Like banquets, I will look into that. Thank you for the suggestions. Valentine's Day is always a challenge, Thank you so much for the suggestions and your patronage.

Very disappointing. Went for Valentine’s Day and found they had a limited menu. Service was great but food was not. Fried oysters and salad were good. Lamb loin was dry and over cooked. Lobster ravioli were bland and tasteless. Wine we had was very good. Expresso and cheesecake were good. Our experience did NOT match the reviews. One and done

My wife and I had a very nice early Valentine's Day meal at Assaggio. We shared the stuffed long hots (very good) and split a filet with an added lobster tail. The tail came out under done but, it was taken care of, and returned, immediately and was even taken off of our bill.
We had some drinks and had a nice conversation with the owner and her friend at the bar.
As we were getting ready to leave the owner's friend had ordered a side of their home made gnocchi for us to sample (they are amazing). It was a very nice, and unexpected, gesture.
We will definitely be back; the food is delicious, the bar atmosphere is comfortable and the prices are reasonable.

Bad salmon, replaced with chicken parm, charged my wife for the salmon which is an additional seven dollars. Charged and extra 2 dollars for the striped bass. Should have been 28 dollars charged me 30 dollars. The price and service for an upscale restaurant should have been better.

The food and service was excellent. However, as we were standing outside the restaurant saying goodbye to the other members of our party, after spending $300.00 on our bill for four people, plus a $60.00 tip; the restaurant’s saxophone player exited the building and chastised us for not “showing our patronage” and giving him a tip. This was an extremely rude and uncalled for comment; especially considering one of the members of our party had put money in his tip jar as she exited the ladies’ room. His arrogance spoiled what had thus far been an enjoyable evening. Needless to say, we will not go back to this restaurant again.

This was our go to place for a long time. We loved it and recommended to everyone. There must be a different chef now. Gnocchi were not undercooked, but completely uncooked. How it was not noticed in the kitchen that raw dough was going into the bowl to be covered with sauce I cannot imagine. How did this get served? My dinner was bland and also bordered on undercooked. Disappointed and won’t return. We get precious little time out together and can’t chance it. If there is new staff in the kitchen, they need far more oversight.

Been here 5-6 times and I’ll never get tired of assagio. Went for late dinner on a Monday in winter. Owner called me personally and said they would stay open for us as they were slow like most on a Monday night. Food is incredible every time. Portions are huge and priced just right. This place is a hidden gem and always top pick for me to bring somebody special. Try the pasta trio you won’t be disappointed

This is a fabulous family run business. The servers are knowledgeable and personable and the food was excellent. The owner was there to make sure everything was right. Her granddaughter was our waiter. Any complaint that it is out of the way depends upon where you are staying. That said, even if you are staying in Atlantic City, it is still worth the drive.

Love the atmosphere of this comfortable relatively small dining room. Nice live music on a Saturday night. Good pasta and chicken dishes. Ordered a pasta chicken dish with long hots, but was TOO spicy to eat comfortably. Even after taking out all the long hot pieces, still too hot. I like spicy foot, this was torture. Should have let the finer know how spicy this would be; nothing on menu indicted this. My fault, should have sent it back. Still a favorite Italian place to eat.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. I apologize that the long hots were to hot, we do not have a lot of control over that, myself I can't handle hot foods. Sometimes nature makes them not hot enough, maybe a suggestion is to get them on the side so you are able to control the heat.

Great food in a very cozy environment. Food was well presented and nice sized portions. We ordered a scallop appetizer that was easily the best cooked scallops I have ever had, just superb.

Booked this to celebrate my fathers 80th birthday. Never been there before so went by other reviews. Only thing that was good the whole night was the bottle of wine and the fried calamari. My wife was OK with her Chicken Parm. but all the other dinners didn't have any flavor. Fresh pasta was doughy. Over priced for the quality of the food. Left very disappointed.
