Wonderful evening from a corner booth - lively without being too loud for intimate conversation. Perfect caprese on to creamy ravioli. Everyone enjoyed their meal, as you expect!

The food was delicious (Calamari fried fantastic!) and our server one of the best we have encountered at a restaurant in Seattle.

I was celebrating my daughter’s birthday with her and her son. The server Fabio could not have been more accommodating and attentive, despite being very busy.

Always a wonderful meal. Tonight we tried a few items from the fresh sheet. The salmon and the pork dish. They were both delicious. We had the Francesca salad and shared spinach. A nice bottle of wine completed the meal. The service was outstanding as always.

I received a round of applause from the other members of our table of 8 and all I did was make the reservation. Thanks to the Assaggio staff for making the occasion so memorable.

Our first time at Assaggio, but our friends are regulars there. The food was delicious, the service was fantastic! Ambience is great with an elegant but homey feel. Families and couples were enjoying meals together. Very welcoming for all!

The restaurant owner came over to say hello and he couldn’t have been more charming. Can’t wait to go again!

Everything tasted better than the same Italian dishes anywhere else. Very very enjoyable. Not wacky or odd or quirky. Just done right.

We were searching for good food close to the Moore Theater as we were attending a concert that evening. Aside from the great reviews I found online, I had family that had dined there before and it came highly recommended. From the moment we walked thru the door, we were treated wonderfully. We arrived a bit early and decided to have a few cocktails at the bar prior to our dinner reservation. The gentleman tending bar was outstanding. Very prompt, professional and knowledgeable in his craft. Afterwards, we were seated at our table promptly and from the moment we sat down until our departure, our waiter and the rest of the wait staff were phenomenal, tending to our every need and request. It’s been a long time since I felt so good in a restaurant where every need was being met from service to ambience. Having the owner greet us at our table and then again for our patronage as we were leaving made us feel like we were home and part of the family. I can’t thank the staff at Assaggio enough for making this one of the best overall dining experiences that I’ve had in the past decade if not longer. My wife and I will definitely be coming back in the near future.

The service was good. I had to send my dish back as it tasted like they dumped a container of salt in it. They made another dish but by that time my husband was done eating so it kind of ruined the evening. Dont think I would go back.

Best meal we had while on a recent trip to Seattle, possibly the best Italian food I've had outside of Italy! Exceptional service and delicious food at a great value! If you enjoy Italian food, this is a must try.

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.

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!
