Assaggio never disappoints. We have a lovely dinner with an friend from out of town. Noise level is lively but you can still hear your dinner companions. Food was excellent. I had the Barbabietole - roasted beet salad, then Mauro's grilled salmon, a favorite. Warm, inviting, great wine list. Can't go wrong!

We went up with my girlfriend’s sister and brother-in-law to have a overdue get together.

This was the perfect location for it. We all had a wonderful time, Possibly a little too good.

Look forward to next time

There were 6 of us in the group, we all agreed the food was excellent. We were not rushed even though they place was very busy. All of our food arrived to the table at the same time and every dish was still hot. The only issue was that it was very noisy and hard to hear the other people in the group when they were talking.

This is my go-to place when I'm taking someone to lunch and feel like Italian food. I've never yet been disappointed -- the food is delicious, the waiters and waitresses attentive and knowledgeable.

Had a large work dinner here and everything was great! My only quibble (very small) is that the restaurant is small and it seemed like a struggle for some people to get in/out due to the crowded spaces around the table. Also our service was outstanding but nobody took our main entrée order until an hour after we were seated - it made for a very long dinner but was still quite enjoyable!

We were there at 5:00 and it was quiet. By the time we left it was filling up and quite noisy. I had the best salmon I have ever eaten. Service was just excellent

This is a long-standing favorite memory of Seattle dining. I don't get to Seattle all that often, but have been there several times over many years. At least 15 years ago I ate at Assaggio (I have a souvenir matchbook, so I remember the name) and absolutely loved it. I was amazed to find it on Open Table, and made a reservation hoping it was the one I remember. It was, and happily just as good. It is an old-style Italian place that has great ambiance and service and even better food. I am particularly fond of their rigatoni with sausage. I'm so please to know it's still there and still great!

We were both really disappointed in the special we both ordered. It was a seafood dish with crab, salmon and shrimp. The pasta was great, but the crab was very fishy and really took over the dish. Salmon was very scarce. I have eaten at Assaggio before and loved it, but will be hard pressed to return especially with a bill of $90 plus tip. We had 2 specials, a beer and a wine. If it had been good, I have no problem paying those prices. We went away saying it was mediocre. Adios Assaggio!

We always feel like part of the family at Assagio. The food is fabulous and generous. Mussels and clams were the new hit with us.

Great service and nice help with the wine. We were with old friends we had not seen in awhile, and never felt rushed to leave. Food was excellent with a nice menu selection. Tables are close together, but still loved the ambiance. Parking available right next door!

Food was awesome (boar ragu was super delicious). The waitstaff was fun and friendly, yet still very professional. Prices were reasonable, even with cocktails there was no sticker shock. It was a great time and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves Italian food.

Great happy hour at the bar! The margarita pizza was a great snack for $8. Crust is light and fluffy with the right amount of sauce and cheese. Next time I visit Seattle, I’ll be sure to come in for a full meal. Nice place!

Our reservation was at 7 but we showed up at 6:30- we were greeted as if we were family, we were seated right away and had such amazing service from beginning to end. We asked for the waiter's recommendations based on our food and wine preference and we were both so incredibly pleased with both!! After a few disappointing days in Seattle, this was our highlight!! We will come back each time we are in town

Without knowing anything about this restaurant, we noticed it's charming appearance while walking along the street. We researched reviews and then canceled an existing reservation to eat here. We were NOT disappointed! The food was outstanding, as was the service. If we ever visit Seattle again this will be the first reservation we make.

Assaggio is a favorite, so it isn't a surprise we found dinner to be outstanding. All of the entrees on the menu are worth having, and this evening there was a special on the menu, grilled salmon with broccoli and mashed potatoes. This was the best salmon I have had all year, and I have been lucky enough to have had some excellent salmon preps this season. Lucky to be in Seattle where the salmon's great, and lucky to have Assaggio. The starters and my wife's entree were excellent. The staff, as usual, were friendly and professional, looking after all the details. Another great night.
