We LOVE Assagio! We live in the neighborhood we go out to dinner here often. It is family owned & operated. Mauro is so kind and welcoming. He is usually there to greet you and welcome you back. Francesca, is daughter, is usually the hostess and she is incredible just like her dad. The food is outstanding! My favorite is the Chicken Parmigiana.
Service is the best around! Rack of lamb was truly amazing!
We Love Assaggio. It's simple--great food, service and the owner is he kindest man who always makes you feel like you're in Italy, and at home, all at the same time.
Always so good!! Favorite restaurant of mine! Mauro is so friendly and welcoming!!
Nice place with great food, ambience and service!
Great food, outstanding host owner! The house wine was very good and a great bargain.
Assaggio has been my favorite Italian spot for years. Always great food and welcoming staff. I am so glad to see them open again. I highly recommend this place.
So glad Assaggio is re-open!! Best dinner, wine, etc. What a wonderful place to go!
Very warm, jovial welcome!!! Super efficient serving staff, with excellent wine recommendations. The BEST atmosphere in a restaurant in Seattle! I love the hum and vibe of all the dinners! To top it all, the food was incredible as well!
We love this restaurant the god, ambience, owner & staff!!!?
Top flight service and food- excellent and well priced!
This place. My favorite -!!
We enjoyed our dinner immensely for a number of reasons. Food was great as was the service. Wine was excellent! We loved the decor and ambience. Highly recommend!!
Nice, solid Italian restaurant! Everyone was incredibly kind to us throughout our whole visit.
My only reservation on recommending Assaggio to friends is that the quality of the food is not up to the same level of restaurants in the area at a similar price point. I was also sad to see the the risotto tasted much more like a standard Jasmine rice than the thick, robust risotto texture that I've had elsewhere. The person I was wish ordered the salmon, which is served on mashed potatoes and he said the mashed potatoes unfortunately tasted gritty and watery (kind of like the kind you make out of a box).
I'd say stop by if you want a great, no-fuss noodle dish! But if you're looking for a special occasion spot, or have your eye on something more than standard pasta, you may want to weigh your other options.
We will be regulars!!
Love this place consistent excellent service and quality of good.
Love this restaurant. The food was great. Tables/chairs could be more comfortable.
From the front of the house to the wait staff it was an amazing experience! Food was wonderful and the desserts were delicious.
This is an Italian restaurant, mainly classic but with a few twists. Our entrees were excellent: a pasta special with a complex tomato sauce and waygu beef, and osso bucco. Wine also good. However, our appetized of calimari was overcooked. Review would have been higher but for that.
Our favorite Italian restaurant. It never disappoints. The food is always fantastic and the service is top notch.
Darko gave great service and we both enjoyed our food very much. We will be back.
Had my team dinner here food
Was great tried the risotto and it was amazing so was the calamari and bruschetta
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
