Food came out late and it was cold. Tables are way too close together and no room. Server was great and always there.

We had a reservation and waited about 15 minutes for our table. We were sat at a low to the ground table where you had to bend over to eat which was too close to the table next to us. The servers and everyone else had to get through this very narrow pathway because the guy seated next to us sat with his chair way out and no one said anything to him. As expected a server walked by and dumped the whole table on top of us - drinks and glass all over us. They offered limoncello and dessert while the other table had their comp’d bottle of wine almost immediately while we weren’t even cleaned up with glass and drinks everywhere and had to ask twice for our drinks. Won’t be going back for sure.

The food was great. Waited about 10 extra minutes for our table, not too shabby, but the downside was waiting FOREVER for our entree. It got the point where we had to ask our waiter what was going on. I recommend Assaggio, but be prepared for a wait if you’re visiting on a weekend night.

Quick service, delicious food, I got one of the specials. Probably the best old fashioned I’ve ever tried, they make it their own special way. Not too loud, great spot for a date. Good atmosphere

Our service was very late. They took 20 mins for a server to come put in an order for the drinks. Another 15 mins for someone to take our order. Fast forward 30 mins for the server to come tell us the ticket system was broken and the dinner order hadn’t gone in yet. 10 mins later our appetizer came in. 15 mins after that the entree finally arrived. I am not sure what was going at the restaurant that night because I could see many servers and the it wasn’t jam packed at all. Hoping this is a one off.

Even though the place was completely empty -second floor - the hostess sat the five of us on a table for four. We were three on one side and two on the other side. Very uncomfortable. We could see that the restaurant stayed empty from the time we came in until the moment we left. For several times we asked the staff to decrease the volume of the music. It was useless. It was impossible to have a conversation. Never more.

The restaurant is nicely designed, very ideal for a date. I had very delicious octopus, and lamb chops were next level delicious. The service is very professional and etiquette. The place clean and easy to get to. The only problem is parking, the streets are very narrow and congested with vehicles. You may need to park in a garage then take ride share to the place.

After 10 pm dining is basically like having a meal at a very loud nightclub.

Wish they would have indicated this reservation was not for their dining room

As always, Assagio never disappoints. The food is absolutely outstanding and prepared perfectly, the waitstaff is friendly and knowledgeable. The manager checked in a couple times to make sure everything was perfect, not with just our table but every table. This is why I continue to come back to Assagio, and will do so for because of the consistent tremendous dining experience we have each and every time.

Outstanding Carpacchio and short ribs were incredible falling apart and seasoned perfectly. Polenta was creamy and complimented the ribs well. We ordered a side of pasta aglio y olio, and it was the best naked pasta ever. Loved the service, very attentive.

We were 15 minutes early but were seated right away by the window. Perfect spot on a beautiful evening. We asked if the fried calamari app could exclude the scallops and shrimp, and they were able to accommodate us. There was a ton of calamari. It was good. A bit more spice would have made it perfect. Our meals were chicken parmigiana and lobster fra diavlo. The chicken parm was a bit bland. I rarely salt anything but would have added it if salt were on the table. The lobster came shelled which we were not expecting. He did enjoy his meal and the heat was just right. The Pinot Grigio was delicious. Our waiter was attentive and did not rush us out the door which can happen on a busy Saturday night in the north end. Overall, a nice dining experience. I would rate this a 4 out of 5.

Our family of four are there the night before the Boston Marathon so the north end was packed with diners. We were so relieved to get a somewhat last minute reservation. The staff was outstanding from the hostess to the wait staff. They were welcoming, professional and communicative. The food was absolutely delicious from the several appetizers that we tried to our pasta main dishes. The portions were just right. We all ate every last bite and left quite full and happy.

We were told we could not sit at a table by the window because they had a large party coming in but 5 minutes after us they sat a couple in that table. When our salad was delivered they took away our bread that we were not finished with ( 2 pieces left). We asked for the bread and they told us we were out of bread for the night. 3 minutes later the table across from us were given bread and in our way out we could see in the wide open kitchen 5 loaves of bread. The marinara sauce was just a can of hunts. No salt, pepper or any hint of ANY spices. Sad because 10 years ago we loved this place. 5 years ago we had a poor experience so last night we decided to give it one more try. We will never be back.

Food was good .. exceptional bread, yum, however restaurant/glasses could be cleaner and please PLEASE turn the TV off in the dining room. Annoying and distracting .. and added to the noise.
Servers were inexperienced (taking plates away too soon, rushing us through appetizers, etc). Could be due to Covid staffing issues.
