    I wanted to love this place. It was our second night in Boston’s north end and we were looking forward to another great Italian dinner. This was not it. Our server was nice but didn’t know the specials, and knew nothing about the wines on the list. We ordered a bottle of wine and when it came the server struggled to open it table side, which was extremely awkward. After receiving charcuterie that was not very good, and included some sort of bologna type sandwich meat, we decided to leave.

    Basement, cramped seating. Inefficient service, food runner did laps around the basement before going to find help to find our table. Never offered another drink. Server didn’t check back after food arrived cold because our runner decided it was time to get some cardio in. Young, inexperienced waitstaff. For those prices you better be on point with everything.

    We arrived at 7:05PM for a 7:15PM reservation. I let the hostess know we were early but she was able to seat us. We were seated and waited approximately 10minutes until I had to get up and go back to the hostess to let them know that no one attended to our table, but the table behind us who sat after us was immediately attended too. The hostess assured she would send someone over, in which we waited another 5 minutes. We were never informed of any specials, and when we did finally order water, bread and our beverages it took quite some time to get the water and bread. Once we ordered everything, an appetizer, salad, and two entrees, everything came out so quickly. But our waiter did not come over at any point during our consumption of our appetizers OR meals before we were essentially done to see how our meal was or if we wanted any grated cheese. We were very disappointed as we just drove in 6 hours, it was our anniversary and we wanted to enjoy a nice date night out to begin our weekend away. The food was delicious but the service made the entire experience quite disappointing.

    The service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. Only complaint is that calamari had shrimp in it which is not good for those with shell fish allergies

    Doreen at the bar was wonderful. She was engaging and charming . The rest of the experience was was reprehensible. The kitchen doesn’t seem to have it together and the entrees were horrid. We dined here several years ago and it was great but it is now a different experience. It’s such a shame to see the decline, we won’t be back.

    Having been here on several occasions this particular experience was disappointing. The food was good but not exceptional as it normally is. The portions seem to be getting smaller and smaller and the prices seem to be going higher and higher. The bruschetta for $16 with two tiny pieces of bread that were no more than 2 inches in length is absurdly overpriced. The loud night club music did not add to what is normally a lovely experience. We ordered four appetizers that we would all be sharing yet we received no serving utensils despite repeated requests. We also waited and never received salt and olive oil to dip the bread in. Our entrées were good but again not exceptional. This was a fairly early reservation so The service should’ve been more attentive. Maybe it was an off night. Will try again another time.

    Amazing dinner for 4- Assagio has a great menu. Appetizers included Calamari, shrimp, onion ring fritto misto, broccoli rabe bruschetta and clams sauted with garlic white wine. For dinner, if you love seafood- the Grigliata is NOT to be missed-grilled assortment of fish- catch of day, shrimp, calamari, scallops, lobster with a side vinaigrette. Pasta dishes all have homemade pasta- we had Italian clams with tomatoes (stained red) and shrimp fra diavolo which they made for me. Last entree was a special- veal parmigiana with the bone on-outstanding. Desert include deconstructed tiramisu which they make at your table with espresso martinis. Definitely stuffed but a walk around the North End after will finish off your evening. Highly recommend. We had a new waiter Lucas who did a fabulous job taking care of us.

    We sat at the bar on the main level and had a lovely meal and a few cocktails. The food was great and the martinis were made perfectly. It was high energy but with a relaxed vibe. I would definitely recommend Assaggio for a girls night to catch up, a date or friends going for dinner!!

    The restaurant should train their new waiters much better. Ours could not answer simple questions about the menu. When he did respond it was incorrect. Also, we had to ask about specials, request bread and remind him we asked for the check. When waiters are new assign a veteran to be with them. First and last time we will visit!
