The restaurant was not busy, but we had to wait an hour for our food after being seated. After receiving our dinner the food was completely cold and our server never checked back in on us and avoided eye contact whenever we would try to get her attention. I would have understood if the restaurant was busy, but it wasn't. Having it been Mother's Day, I was really dissappointed that her meal ended up being the worst out of all of ours. We won't be returning.

House wines are excellent. 21.99 early bird special good, according to those who ordered it. Eggplant parmigiana is mostly fried bread. Will go back to try other dishes.

Our waiter was funny and a delight. I had the salmon, it was ok, asparagus were very very bitey in taste. My date had the filet, and he said it was ok. A small diningroom with a saxaphone player is a bit much, hard to talk to someone sitting even very close to you. Its a nice place, ok food. Owner came around and greeted each table which was a nice touch.

Noise level was higher because we were seated right by the sax player which made it hard to hear. Normally the noise level is quiet. Food was delicious & everyone is very accommodating.

I recognize that Assaggio specializes in fresh pasta, but kitchen needs to execute on other elements of menu. Canelloni main course looked good and M said it was very good with huge portion 1/2 of which was taken home. But then there were the issues like brown lettuce in salad with weak dressing lacking flavor. My wife ordered Chicken Parmigiana but got Veal Parmigiana delivered instead. The veal was awful both for my wife's meal and for D's. You need a better veal supplier to put this on menu. Bottom line is that we will not be back because it is not the quality of a desination restaurant.

We were a party of 7. Restaurant is small and we were seated right where the musician was playing. He added a nice ambiance to the restaurant but it also made it hard to have a conversation. Overall, food and service was wonderful. A little pricey.

We dined early on a Monday evening so the restaurant was quiet. The room is very small. The food was good but nobody at our table had any raves about anything that they ordered. We would NOT recommend the ravioli carbonara appetizer. Overall adequate but not memorable.

The most romantic evening on the calendar, valentines day! And it was almost ruined. My wife and I made reservations a week and a half in advance on Open Table. I included a special note letting the staff know that we are vegetarians and one person has a seafood allergy. On the restaurant website, they did mention a valentines day menu however ordering from the regular was an option. On the day of our reservation, my wife called to confirm our attendance and to again let them know that we are vegetarians and she has a seafood allergy. The staff member verified the reservation and reassured her that all was well.
We arrived and we were seated. Seafood appetizers and seafood entree were on the menu. No options for us. Not even the option to speak to the manager. Hmm. On our way out the host offered us a rose and the hostess let us know that she would let the manager know. Like that would help us how?
Gourmet Italian Restaurant in Galloway saved the day!! :)

Disappointed....we were not able to order from the regular menu. Limited choices. We were seated upstairs while downstairs had live music. My husband's cesare salad was served on a HOT plate and service was barely adequate. Waitress never even told us her name. As it was Valentine's Day, it was very disappointing.

Weeks in advance I made a reservation on open table for my parent’s 55th wedding Anniversary. One week before the date I called Assaggio directly to add a person to our reservation (from 4 to 5) and to make sure they could accommodate the extra person. The person I spoke to assured me we would be seated at a round table in the corner which seats five or six. When we arrived we were seated at a table for 4 with a chair added on the end. Closed in on all sides by other tables-completely unacceptable-especially with the age of my parents. The table (for 6) that we were guaranteed over the phone was occupied by an elegant single woman . Assaggios said that no one left a note in the book to reserve the agreed upon table. I am very confident that the hostess we met when we arrived was the same person I spoke to on the phone. We already finished our dinner before anyone joined the elegant woman sitting at that large table for 6. Only Two people joined her.
We were smashed in and had a terrible dinner! Food was mediocre and ambience was frightful!
We will never go back and we encourage others to stay away.

This was our first visit to the restaurant while the couple who was with us had previously dine there a few times. We found the staff to be friendly as soon as we walked in. The mood and atmosphere were pleasant and they even had a musician playing music to dine by. Service was impeccable and the four entrees that we were served were wonderfully delicious and prepared well. The dinners do not come with a salad but do to the size you can easily order one and share it. It was a wonderful evening!

It was pretty good, but not as good as in the past. It was a little loud when we got there, but the guy playing the sax settled down and was very good. I guess it really depends on what you order as my entree was not so good but my dates was excellent.
