We enjoyed our dinner here; the ambiance, nice lively vibe, and we had a wonderful table outside. The food was mostly good— delicious spaghetti a la vongole, tender beef ribs but could’ve used a bit more flavor/seasoning, calamari was excellent, but the fried olives were way too salty. Service was quite efficient and prompt but not very attentive and friendly; kinda diminished the ambiance a bit. Overall, it was pleasant enough that I’ll consider going back and see if I’ll have a better experience next time.

We where there celebrating our sons graduation. I made reservations a month a head of time. It was a bit disappointing to get shoved into a table by the front door and up against the bar. We had a party of 8 and we could not have s nice conversation it was too loud. Was a bit of a bummer.

This was the last night of a four day get away to Seattle celebrating an early anniversary. For our last dinner in Seattle we wanted a local gem and we happened across Assaggio. From the onset we knew we were onto something special. Assaggio’s great curb appeal draws you in where you’re met by a a gentleman (we assume the owner) who obviously enjoys what he does for a living. We were offered a choice of seating options and choose to dine alfresco.

The menu had Italian depth and selection was difficult. We selected seafood pasta and ravioli with prawns. The pasta was cooked perfectly, the seafood was fresh and abundant. Service was friendly, accommodating and food was prepared expediently and served hot. Assaggio was just what we were hoping to find for our last dinner in Seattle.

Sent the pasta back as it was dry, plus the waiter forgot the coffee. We were one of the first customers before it got busy so food and service should have been better.

I visited Assaggio twice in the one week - once with reservation and once without. Service was a little patchy for our lunch reservation. As the restaurant emptied out, so it seemed did the servers and by the end of the meal, we were reliant on the super-helpful busboy to get dessert and coffee. Otherwise, excellent food, lovely ambiance and a great drinks list. Dinner service as a walk-in was faultless.

have always appreciated Assagio as a staple of the downtown dining scene, not too pretentious or affected, good neighborhood place, reliable service, atmosphere and quality. Have to say, though, on this occasion the main courses were underwhelming. Chicken Parmigian was too bready, linguine con vongole too salty -- way too salty. Disappointing. I won't write it off, but won't rush back, either.

We celebrated both of our son's returning from college for the summer at Assaggio this week and it could not have been more perfect. We were given a lovely round table right by the window and the service and food were spectacular. Our sons had the spaghetti and lasagna and loved them both and I had the pasta special for the night which was filled with fresh seafood and probably one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. We loved the entire experience and will definitely be back soon.

The doors were open because of the weather, which was beautiful but there were a bunch of sirens going by, and I imagine that happens a lot in their downtown location. It wouldn't be good for groups, but for two people it was lovely- food and service were both excellent.

Assaggio was one of the best restaurants we ate at in Seattle. I liked it better than Lola, really, which was also good. Value for money is outstanding in the restaurant, higher than those around it. The staff was great, and one gentleman who I thought might have been the owner came over to our table who made an effort to welcome us.

What a nice ambiance this restaurant has and what a good vibe you get from the staff.

Loved it.

3rd time eating here. Did not dissapoint. Made reservations a couple days before and had to keep modifying it due to my husbands late meeting. Despite it bring extremely busy on a Friday night, we were seated with 10 minutes.
The Wild Boar Pappardelle did not disapoint and my husband loved his seafood pasta dish. Food came out very quickly and the waiter attentive, though they do spend more time with the tables with the pretty women!

We had the pasta faglioli soup to start. The entrees we ordered were lasagna and linguini with clam sauce. I didn’t love the meat used in the lasagne, but the sauce was excellent. My daughter loved the linguini! I ordered the gelato wth espresso for dessert and was disappointed in the extremely small scoop of gelato. The tiny espressso overtook the gelato and it was like having a cup of coffee rather than being a nice combo.
The waiter seemed stressed, but he was efficient and the support staff were friendly.

Assaggio's is by far the best Italian restaurant in Seattle. My family is from Italy and I can tell you that this is Italian food with a special ingredient...made with passion. The great food and the warm atmosphere are spectacular, and the hospitality that the owner Mauro gives you is one of a kind.

We were a family group of 7, had a reservation but were seated at what has to be the worst table in the house. Right in the intersection of 3 server routes. Table made for 4 but crammed for 7. We had to have the glassware removed otherwise there would have been no table space. It's the little things that you remember next time you think of a restaurant that cause you to give it a mental thumbs down before you choose another restaurant. If you have 1-4 in your party, it can be a fun place but after multiple visits, this one left a pretty bad taste.
