Three of our friends recommended and they were right! It’s amazing restaurant and service. We will be back for sure.
I made a note when making my reservation that both guests were vegan, and when we were seated the wait staff promptly pointed out which wines were vegan and had the vegan food menus ready for us. We thought this was a very nice, welcoming gesture. The vegan entrees and mains were really delicious too. We will definitely return to this venue!
There is nothing negative about this welcoming hub . Great service . Personable staff . Most important the food is varied and bloody tasty ! Can’t wait to go back . Thanks guys
Great restaurant - fab staff and wonderful food. Our favourite local!!
Outstanding experience. Incredibly friendly staff, phenomenal food, great wine selection. Couldn't recommend it more.
Great food on a busy night just before Lockdown 5.0. Thanks!
Friendly and super helpful service, nice venue and food to die for with a great selection of wines. Great value for money too, can’t recommend highly enough
Had a great night was just a little disappointed that all the vegan dishes came out first and then the others but we had one dish that came out last which meant that one of the guests sat there with nothing until we had finished ours. Asked for a candle to be put on our sons desert as his birthday and they were very lovely and did it which was nice
One of our favorite local restaurants and did not disappoint, luckily had pre-booked for the night before lockdown. Great food and wine and the best margarita!!!
Great lunch, service was outstanding..we love your lunch special..we will be back soon
The vegan menu was full of options. The cheese platter was delicious. The Tortelloni dish was yummy, but the portion looked a lot smaller than the Duck Ragu Gnocchi. Service was great and a beautiful atmosphere.
Great Local Restaurant, good value needs a little more ambience in the top right section but doesn't distract from great meal and service
Very good service, food and atmosphere, would recommend
We have been to Assagini before. It is one of our favourite local restaurants. We always enjoy going.
Really friendly and welcoming staff! The food and cocktails were delicious. Can’t wait for my next visit
Been here twice now and each time they did not disappoint. We ate lamb rump, brisket slider and a bunch of items from vegan menu and it was all absolutely delicious. Would highly recommend eating here!
We have been patrons of Assaggini on many occasions and will keep coming back. My first time at Assaggini was five years ago at my daughter's hens dinner. I was so impressed back then that my husband and I have bought friends to dine with us there and have recommended Assaggini to many others. Everything about the restaurant is fabulous. The extensive, tasty, delicious tapas menu, excellent wine and drinks list are comprehensive, covering Australian and overseas wineries. The service also was terrific, and our waiter, Nick, was a delight to chat to and very engaging. Assaggini, thank you for another memorable dining experience. Our friends who accompanied us this time also commented what a wonderful time they had, and that the food and drinks were delicious.
Very enjoyable, great food, good service, we will be back
Was great food lots of great choices and sharing style is so fun to do . The service was fast and atmosphere was nice inside on a cold night
Great options for both vegans, meat eaters & people with food allergies. Love meeting my family here as all of us go away very happy
Wonderful place, wonderful service & wonderful food!!
The food was exquisite, the service excellent and friendly and we would highly recommend this restaurant. We had chef choice a four course menu, snacks, entree, pasta, and meat dish. All were excellently presented, hot when needed to be and delicious . We will go back.
Very friendly staff. Great food and wine. Very well priced
Delicious food, great atmosphere snd friendly staff. A wonderful evening.
Booked it as it was meant to have a fireplace and it was a very cold winters day- it did but it has never worked apparently! Menu was small and fairly limited. Nice decor
Probably made the wrong choice on the menu - not quite what was expected but still okay.
We felt rushed as we did not realise that we would be asked to leave at 7:15pm as the table was booked at 7:30 so 1-1/2 hours to catch up with friends and enjoy a meal was far too rushed.
Hi Lorraine, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. Seating and turn times are stated when you book for 1 hour and 45 minutes. We apologise that you felt rushed and understand sometimes guests are late however as a courtesy to other guests we have to manage this. We always encourage guests to book later sittings if they're looking for a more leisurely experience as we do double seatings on Friday and Saturday nights. We look forward to your return visit, The Assaggini Team
Lovely restaurant to enjoy good food, good wine and company
It’s a shame that the waitresses and bar staff are so good at customer service because the food is sooooo poor.
The restaurant looks great, staff are friendly, service was fast. But drinks made by bar staff were average…. Not sure how you can stuff up an aperol spritz (seriously) super bitter!! Way too much aperol guys, not a big deal though… until we tasted the food!
Super lazy chef!! I had the seafood linguine…. Pasta was over cooked, prawns were over cooked and quite possibly frozen, not fresh. Clams were super yuck. The actual flavour of the pasta was nothing!! I needed so much Parmesan to get through it!! Seriously guys…. Taste your food!!
Similar with my wife’s dish, over cooked pasta. Take some pride in your cooking or hire a different chef all together. This place won an award in 2018 and that’s why we booked there. Has to be a different chef since then!!!
I’d totally avoid!!! Not cheap either hahaha which is even worse, dinner was over $100
Hi there, We're sorry that you felt the quality of the food and beverage offering was below par and didn't decide to raise the issue when dining with us as this would have offered us (any) opportunity to rectify, especially as the value proposition didn't meet expectation. We always welcome feedback and try to improve when notified so I will pass on your recommendations to the Chef and Bar staff. We're glad to hear service and ambience was good. The Assaggini Team
Amazing food ! I had gnocchi with oxtail ragu and it was terrific! The service excellent too . Will be back soon .
Great menu with a variety of different and lovely food. We shared all of our choices and enjoyed the experience.
Really great food selection and quality. Staff efficient, professional and warm.
Always consistently good in all aspects of dining out. Staff are attentive without being intrusive. Food plentiful and delicious.
thanks - a delightful experience overall, as always.
Great service and atmosphere
great night, food was amazing, service also & just a great atmosphere.
look forward to returning
A very lovely meal, but marred by a couple of tables of raucous diners. Not the restaurant’s fault, and they were aware it was annoying.
We have visited several times and will happily return.
Great lunchtime special for a mid-week lunch with friends. Service a little slow but straight out of lockdown, hardly surprising. Staff were courteous and friendly. We’ll be back….
Great food and great service, Thanks!
We loved the share plates.
Simple, well thought out menu. Excellent food and service.
Assagini is one of the best date night spots in Mornington! The food is divine and the wait staff and atmosphere is lovely. Highly recommend.
