Food was delicious!! Service was slow. After our appetizers were served we didn’t see our waitress for quite a while. She finally came by and asked if we were ready for dessert menus. We said no, we would like our dinner first. The expression on her face was priceless. Dinner then promptly arrived and was prepared to perfection!! Music was terrific!! Fun Mother’s Day dinner!!

Many non gluten options, excellent food. The head chef Barreto came to the table. Good wine list and many beer choices. Loved the demitasse Expresso. All food was excellent. Smaller than I thought but they have a party room upstairs. They also have a DJ on the weekends one the main floor.

The chef is amazing. The flounder dish is very flavorful and savory. I highly recommend the beet gnocchi in the sherry sauce with lobster it is dynamite. It’s a light take on gnocchi but incredibly delicious. For dessert the peanut butter bomb will not disappoint!

Very let down on how the food was. The fried calamari was terrible, was so bland and had no taste and then the seafood risotto wasn’t too great either. Seafood was like it was frozen and cooked in a bag. Everything was over cooked, I couldn’t even get the lobster out of the tail. Shrimp were very hard. Very disappointed considering the cost of the dish.

We've been here before and we'll certainly be back. It's close by and a great " go to " spot when tired of everything else. The prices are reasonable and the service is always top notch! The owner even came around to ensure we were having a good time and to ask if our food was good. Give the place a try and you'll be glad you did!

This was a special event for us because we invited a special person to dine with us. We all had fish. She had bronzino, my girl friend had flounder, and I had sword fish. All were prepared to perfection. Absolutely delicious. Our guest, a tiny person, ate the whole meal and had dessert. So, yes, we enjoyed the evening. We are frequent customers so we knew what we were in for. This restaurant is highly recommended.

EVERY ONE ENJOYED THEIR MEALS, PRICES WERTE REASONABLE. MY CAPRA SALAD WAS DELICIOUS, BRONZINO WAS EXCELLENT. CHEF WAS VERY ACCOMMODATING IN CHANGING A SSAUCE FOR MY FRIEND'S DISH.

Overall we had a lovely dinner . The food was very good.
The one thing that really put a damper on the evening was the TV over the bar. It really cheapened the experience. I wouldn't include Wheel of Fortune as part of a fine dining experience.

I wanted to love this place...ratings were great so I made a reservation for our 1 year wedding anniversary (I wanted it to be special) we braved the storm to go out to celebrate. Service was great, except the fact I had to ask to refill my water when there was only 3 couples in the whole place, 2 of them at the bar and the bartenders responsibility, but Emilie was bubbly and friendly and we don’t like to make a tough time. Appetizer was delicious...2 scallops and 3 onions for $15. We ordered the veal that you had to saw through with a side of extremely bland pasta. I ordered the $38 seafood paella that was subpar at best. Neither of our dinners were served with a salad which seemed odd but it is what it is. What was supposed to be a special night of celebration was turned into a rush to leave before we got too upset. We ended up going to a local bar to get more food as a $95 tab and a $25 tip left us still hungry, we didn’t even want to look at the dessert menu we just wanted to leave.

The food is great, well prepared and you get a whole lot of food. Mary the owner, is very special. She greet everyone at their table and sits and chats with you. If you have a special occasion , she will defiantly take care of you. So if you want a great meal, with a great atmosphere Assaggio's is the place to go.

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!

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.
