Domenico Cornacchia, Executive Chef of Assaggi Osteria, taps into ages of ancestral Italian cooking each time he steps into his kitchen and brings a rich love of the cuisine that he so skillfully nurtured through the years. “Assaggi means tastings in Italian,” explains Domenico, “The concept of my menu is based on a variety of items that may be ordered in smaller portions.” Before deciding to pursue his dream of operating his own restaurant, Domenico was corporate executive chef and partner at Café Milano, for more than 15 years. His culinary umbrella also covered Café Milano’s two sister restaurants, Sette Bello in Clarendon, VA., and Sette Osteria in Dupont Circle.  For those who love Italian cuisine, Assaggi Osteria features homemade pasta’s, fresh seafood, veal and scrumptious beef. Assaggi Osteria sources whole fresh fish from worldwide sustainable sources,offering the finest bounty the sea has to offer. Produce is purchased from Amish farms and all desserts are homemade.

My wife and I have been to Assaggi many times and we will return many more. The food is always excellent and genuinely Italian. It is well laid out and decorated and we consider it the best Italian restaurant in the DC area.

The updates look great and more edgy, although we loved the previous family, "italian" atmosphere. They removed their gnocchi which was one of the dishes we were hoping to have. No offense to the service which was great but we missed the older familiar waiters of before. Seems the servings are smaller and more expensive.

We were disappointed in the menu since some entrees were not available. We ordered the wild halibut that was delicious but the portion was very small for the price. The dish had very little veggies and presentation was uninspiring. It looked like the food was thrown together.

The service was good and we were not rushed.
