    First time visit. Our family loved the vibe and the service team. Our waiter was terrific. We never felt rushed, even on a Friday night. The food was really good. One family member gave a “so-so” to the gnocchi’s. Chicken Parm was awesome. We would definitely go back.

    Food is not worth the price—especially with so many great restaurants in the area. We were trying something new—instead of our usual favorite places—and this place just didn’t compare. Ravioli tasted like it was frozen and not fully warmed through. Wait service was lacking — young waiters seemed indifferent or uninterested in being there, although the bus boy worked hard, and he was the person we tipped well. The bread and basil oil dip were good, but otherwise, just not worth it!

    I'm disappointed with my recent visit to Assaggio's. I've been here quite a few times with family and friends and never had a bad experience, but this time was different. They sat us in the basement near where the employees go in & out and the downstairs bathrooms were disgusting. You walked out to a room filled with trash too. We ordered the Zucchini Flowers which I've had numerous times (there's usually 3) and it's 20 dollars which is still expensive but whatever...they gave us 2 little stuffed zucchini flowers for 20 dollars, one less than normal and a huge rip off. My dad also asked for light cheese on his veal parm and extra sauce and they didn't listen to that- it was covered in cheese and barely any sauce. Also took over an hour and 15 mins to get our food. Not a good experience.

    Food and service was fantastic and the setting was perfect. The only complaint was the Crème Brulé, it was too cold, not very smooth and the burnt sugar crust was soft.

    I’ve always loved Assagios and still do. I tried the upstairs dining room for the first time and it had the music playing way too loud and it wasn’t even Christmas music in mid December. Also, needed more Christmas decorations. Thank You!

    Nice, relaxed atmosphere. We ate at the bar before a Celtics game. Delicious octopus appetizer and an equally delicious zucchini pasta. Very pleasant bartender and great service. A minor complaint is that the menu is hard to read given the low light levels. White paper and bigger font will do the trick!

    The food was good, however service was somewhat slow and we were sat in the basement next to the kitchen which was only covered by a curtain, so our experience ended up being very loud and not wholly enjoyable. Would be better to reduce the number of tables so everyone's experience would be better.

    We were glad to sit on the lower level as it is quieter downstairs and easier to talk within our group. Food was good enough, although the gnocchi entree would have been better if fresh tomatoes were included as the menu seemed to suggest. Service was fine except we paid with our non-profit's credit card. I asked the server to rerun the bill without the tax as we are a tax-exempt organization. He said he'd ask his boss. He came back and gave us the merchant/customer charge slips but not the itemized bill. When I asked for the itemized bill, the tax charge was still there. I felt like he was trying to slip this past us hoping we wouldn't notice. I would have preferred him telling us that they were unable to omit the tax charge rather than trying to sneak it past us.

    I went there once and it was fantastic! I ordered that first time a zucchini pasta that was such a delightful memory and the reason I went back. Last night was a nightmare! The waitress Carmen was rude and did not know how to get orders to the table on time. We ordered 2 appetizers, the first one took over 20min to come and for the second one, I had to remind the waitress twice. Then they finally brought the second appetizer and 2 min later our main course 🤦🏻‍♀️. I was looking forward to that pasta and it was terrible! The zucchini was burnt, the pasta just tasted like boiled pasta with cream, not the delicious memory I had of it. My mom orderded a clam with pasta and the clams were raw. The manager is explained that the kitchen was going through training and maybe that can explain the tasteless food, but does not justify the waitress Carmen behavior. I appreciate that the manager compensated us with the bill. I am hoping this was just a bad night and they will take our feedback. Also the table next to us had issues with their meal that they also got compensated, so it was not just our table.

    Inattentive service. Food took a while to get to our table, and when it did, 2 out of 3 of our entrees were cold. We sent it back, and it was returned 10 minutes later microwaved.
