Food was AMAZING! Very, very busy and we had a table right in middle of the room so the waiters were zipping by us continuously. Not super relaxing but I would go again because the food was SO good! I had the lasagna and tiramisu and they were excellent. Bruschetta was just OK. House red was perfect! Definitely a place I will go back to!

I ordered the lasagna and it was great! My husband ordered the trio pasta, and his was cold, all 3 pastas were cold. Other than that I would be willing to try it again but not sure about him.

My wife and I decided to eat here for our 26th wedding anniversary dinner after seeing it on Evening Magazine. We both thought the food was great, especially the olive oil with roasted garlic and capers that came with the bread. The bruschetta appetizer was very fresh and tasty, and although it had a bit more oil on the bread than we were used to, definitely would recommend it. For entrees, my wife had the pasta sampler, and I had the linguini with clams. My linguini had a good many clams, and was delicious. My wife’s sampler was also very tasty, but admittedly for the $30 price, we both thought the portion size could have been larger. Regardless, it was the right portion size for my wife, and gave us a good excuse to order the zeppoli for dessert, which definitely hit the spot and was a delicious way to end a lovely anniversary meal.

Delicious food. Fair prices. Professional service. 3 of 4 got pasta, and I got veal parm. All delicious. I have eaten here for 25 years and it has a solid choice every time.

Food was not bad but not amazing. It seemed like everything was cooked beforehand and warmed up. Bread they provided was very generic.

Despite booking a special occasion reservation a week ago, we were initially seated at an awkwardly placed and just bad table in the bar right behind the hostess stand and front door. We indicated this was a special occasion and you give us your very worst table?

Service staff need to be trained to not bring dirty plates (in hand) from another table when refilling water!

Wait staff was a bit too heavy-handed with the pepper grinder!.

Another great night at Assaggio! Took a new-to-town friend here because they were looking for good Italian in Seattle. They liked it so much they told me they were still thinking about it the next day.

An excellent restaurant for a cozy date! The pastas are excellent. The wine list is quite nice. Some of the mark-ups are on the high side, but there are also some relative bargains if one knows the stuff. And don't miss the canoli for desert!

Assaggio is one of the very best Italian restaurants in Seattle. We eat dinner here whenever we're going to a Jazz Alley show, which pays a double benefit by allowing us to avoid the mediocre, over-priced food at the jazz club. While I've sampled several dishes, my go to dinner is the paparadelle with wild boar ragu. It's amazing!

The food at the lunch for our co-worker who is leaving for a new job was excellent as usual. A bit pricey but worth it. Service was also good.

From being greeted at the door Italian style by Mario and the impeccable service by the rest of the staff we were transported back to a neighborhood restaurant in Northern Italy. It was a night to remember with every item a gastronomic delight. No need to fly to Italy with Mario in Seattle.

There are very few times in my life when I wanted to like the plate clean ... but this was one of them! A sophisticated Italian environment perfect for a special occasion or just a fun Friday night. Amazing service and even better food. I know it sounds like I’m a bit over the top but I mean every word.

It was so wonderful, in every way, that we went two nights in a row! The seafood was prepared beautifully! Loved the cod, shrimp, salmon, scallops, octopus! The Gnocchi was outstanding as well as other pastas. Oh, and the desserts, chocolate cheese cake, tiramisu, gelato and espresso! We were able to visit with the owner, Mauro, and his wife Connie. We had two beautiful evenings there!! Thank you!

Excellent service, party of six all served at the same time. A few of the dishes were quite good, others very
uninspiring and mediocre. Salads were good as were the desserts.

We celebrated Christmas Eve here with our family and it was splendid as always. From the moment we walked in the door we were treated like family by the owner himself as well as the entire wait staff. Our food was delicious and the kitchen even prepared my fish dish with a sauce that I had in the summer but was no longer on the menu. When I asked about it, they said no problem and it was as amazing as I remembered it. We love everything about Assaggio and it’s neighborhood charm.
