Dining experience was fantastic. Low lighting and live music made for a very nice Valentine’s dinner for us. Will definitely return.

We made a reservation for Valentine’s Day. Mia McKenzie was performing there, the main reason we chose Assaggio. We realized it would be a day of fasting, as it is Ash Wednesday this year. Only one meal was without meat. I called and asked, but no other choices were available. Luckily, the shrimp with pancetta was able to be made without the pancetta, so my honey was good with that. Thank you for accommodating our request! We had a lovely evening. Mia was great! Our server was super!

Perfect setting for a quiet New Year's Eve dinner. Great food, service as always. Nice touch was the mellow guitarist playing soft music throughout. Only in a classy intimate restaurant does the owner come around to greet guests at each table. Bellissimo Assagio

We were seated upstairs because we had a party of nine.. very nice but the live music was downstairs. Very good food and the service was attentive and accommodating.

Some unusual dishes were very well prepared. Menu had lots of different offerings, not the usual run of the mill. Good value for the price though wine menu a little pricey.
Wait staff & owner friendly and accessible. Only complaint was our table was a little small (for the very large menus) and close to the entry door, cold every time someone came in. Next time would clarify seating. Definitely will go back. One of the best in the area.

We had a delightful dinner. The service was very good and they had entertainment which was also enjoyable to listen to during dinner.

Our family went to dinner and everybody loved the evening. First, the cocktails were generously poured and the wait staff (Emily) was so kind and attentive. We all enjoyed an assortment of cheeses served on a logged wooden board with honey truffle(wow) and assorted jams, almonds, and light bread sticks while enjoying the fresh aroma of a sprig of roasted thyme. The appetizers were delicious, but the ravioli carbonara was OUTSTANDING (ravioli stuff with the yoke of egg and ricotta cheese gently bathed in a sauce that is simply delicious! Each of use ordered different entrees to include, fresh fish, veal parmigiana, braised short ribs, and shrimp and pea risotto. WOW! Oh, and the gnocchi is the best I ever had! The chef came out to visit each of the quest which added to the evening. A plus was a musician who played quietly in the background the flute, clarinet, tenor and soprano sax never taking a break! Thank you Assagio! A memorable night for my family. We will be back!

The food was undeniably delicious, everything from the appetizer to the meal itself. We went on a week night and a little later for dinner so it was fairly slow; our waitress was very slow and on her phone often instead of tending to our table and the one other table in the room. Aside from her lack of attentiveness it was very well worth it.

My cousinand his wife were here on a visit from Miami and what a pleasant surprise to fine that Mary and my cousin's wife were from Cuba Well what a wonderful time they had together.

This was my second time at Assaggio and my guest’s first time. Truly enjoyed the meal along with the accompaniment of music while dining. Definitely felt welcomed and appreciate the excellent service. The fettuccine Alfredo with shrimp was creamy and light, definitely enjoyed the flavor and it was filling.

We returned to Assagio after a great first dinner there, and had another great meal. The food was absolutely wonderful. This time, we there was live music that did not compete with the ambiance, but complemented it. Our server, Dara, was an absolute delight, making spot-on recommendations, and couldn't have been more friendly. We can't wait until we can return again.

As a celiac, Assaggio is a dream come true. As someone who loves food, Assaggio is HEAVEN. The fresh ingredients, flavors, and quality of the food cannot be surpassed. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming while being romantic. The staff is always attentive and friendly. This is my favorite place!

Great food, but a little busy - only saw our server about 3 times because she was running around doing a million things. Other than that, great time, great music, great food, great wine!
