We were seated at a table for five in the main pathway for waitstaff coming and going - it got a bit hectic at times. It was difficult to move your arms much for fear of hitting someone walking by!
Excellent food, extensive but very expensive wine list.
The 6 of us left happy talking about how good was the food.
I've been visiting Seattle for last 10 years and I hate that I missed this Italian gem. As a bread & oil fan, I enjoyed the roasted garlic infused oil set on the table. As a veal parmigiana fan, I'd have to say that this is probably the best veal parm I've ever had in my life. It is lightly breaded, pounded thin and topped with a semi-thick layer of mozzarella The sauce is just right with an accompaniment of spaghetti. If I could give 10 stars I would.
Absolutely loved it! The service was prefect !! The food outstanding!! We can't wait to go back!
In town for work and this place wasn't too far from my hotel. It is within walking distance of the Pike Place Market which was really nice. The place has a classic feel inside and it isn't that large but has a classic Italian restaurant feeling. My friend and I were seated right away and our server was nice and friendly. I went with the beef tenderloin with a side of rice and it was perfect. The beef was well cooked and easy to cut while the rice was fluffy. Just great service and a wonderful meal, what more could you ask for.
This review may have been affected by having dinner the night before at The Brooklyn. Not a positive experience so it was good to "get back on the horse" the next night at Assaggio where everything was perfect.
Assaggio is a must for me every time I'm in Seattle (3 or 4 times a year.) It should be for anyone who wants it all; good tasting, interesting food, the right level of service, value, reasonable prices, and chef/owner Mauro Golmarvi himself, without whom Assaggio would not be Assaggio.
Delicious food and great service, the best Bellini in my life 👌🏻
Beautiful food, thoughtful service. Thank you, Fabio! We had a truly memorable evening.
It was our 8th year anniversary and they made it very pleasant and satisfying!
Great food. Owner gives a personal touch to each guest. Place gets noisey when full.
My boyfriend and I enjoyed the food and had an amazing experience there. Our waters were always replenished, didn’t wait too long for food to arrive, despite restaurant being packed. Servers and assistants were very kind and anticipated all of our needs
Love Assaggio's! They treat you like family here and the food and service are both spectacular. Incredible wine and cocktail list as well. And Mauro, the owner, is such a warm and friendly person. You won't be disappointed!
Delicious food and phenomenal service! I went with a group of girlfriend's for a friend's bachelorette party. We wanted a low-key but delicious dinner before a night on the town. The minute the owner and staff at Assaggio heard it was my friend's bachelorette they went above and beyond to make us feel special, they even brought each of us a glass of complimentary champagne. The food was so yummy and the drink selection was great too. I 100% plan to return to Assaggio in the future and would recommend it as a great location for special events, dates or just a night out.
A nice little place that I will definitely return to.
What a perfect Valentine's Day!
Excellent food, service and ambience
Best Italian restaurant in Seattle! LOVE the owner he is so friendly, thanks for making our Valentine’s Day such a great one
What a great experience! We last minute decided to come to Seattle for Valentine’s Day weekend so we needed a good place to make a reservation. We were not disappointed! The service was great and the food topped it off!
Food was terrible, literally had sliced cheese melted on our meals... I could have made better at home and for much less $$!!!!
Food great. A little noisy, but we are old. Authentic.
Great experience, the owner really embedded the italian culture into the restaurant. Made it that much more worth it.
Very good. We really enjoyed.
Server and host are unkindness. will not come back
A lively vibe, great service, approachable Italian-centric wine list, and a hands-on focus by the owner make this a place to which you should keep coming back.
best place to eat in downtown!!!! Great vibe, food, service!
It was really good. The food was excellent.
A bustling restaurant, the food is unapologetically traditional Italian. That means that everyone is going to have their own opinion on how it stacks up; we thought it was outstanding. At least as good, if not better, was the service: knowledgeable and attentive without being intrusive.
We celebrate the end of every chemotherapy round here now. You serve his favorite dish... osso bucco. Your restaurant and staff will forever hold a special place in my heart.
Lovely ambiance, delicious food greeting by a very nice gentlemen. However, the service was poor and rushed. The host kept hoover over us in an effort to rush us out. Didn’t enjoy that.
Great Neighborhood find. Has an authentic feel. The food was very good and the servers were attentive.
Best food in the city!!!
Good meal the chicken was a little salty but the vegetables wee delicious.
Absolutely the BEST Italian food in Seattle in my opinion! Mauro is the best host and Fabio is an excellent server. DELIZIOSO!
Assaggio is SO yummy - closest I've found to NJ Italian as well. Best chicken parm in Seattle!
Friends 40th bday
The wait staff were fabulous. Attentive but not overbearing, and gave great recommendations. It helped to make the night special.
Love love love! 2nd time in one week! 😋
Always good and great service.
