Great pasta, but skip the pizza

Assaggi is an unassuming restaurant serving up great food in a friendly and typically Italian atmosphere. Actually, only most of the food is great ... the pizzas are disappointing and well short of what you get at La Perla just down the road. But if you want a tasty range of antipasto and some... read more

Unfriendly service and cold food and incorrect dishes and long long wait. What good could I say? The Pinot Grigio wasn't bad and the location could have been worse. The worst was they didn't seem to care less

We ate here and were very impressed. The pizza was delicious and the pasta was awesome! The owners are Italian who moved to Amsterdam so you know you're getting the real deal! Off the beaten path and in a quiet neighborhood. Salute!

Walked in and got a 2 person table, but the place totally filled up! Get the scallop appetizer definitely; one of the best dishes in a long time and we eat Italian frequently. We had the simple parmesan salad and the cheese was so flavorful. Both had different lasagne types. And the tirami su was great. Great price too. But... More

Awesome authentic Italian food! Was great value for money too! Highly recommend the lobster linguine and the wild boar pappardelle! And they make a very mean homemade limoncello!

We tried our luck on the Easter weekend without having made a reservation. The friendly maître d' went out if his way to get us a table. We had the Pasta of the Day, ravioli filled with artichoke and peccorino, which was delicious. Our kids - always a bit particular about food - were served a special dish catering to... More

We went for dinner on the advice of our hotel receptionist. The staff were welcoming and the place was half full picking up in numbers as the evening went on. The menu offered a good variety of dishes ( which proved to be generous portions). My wild boar ragout with the pasta was excellent as were the other dishes. Wine... More

We came upon this restaurant when another in the area was closed during Christmas week. Although crowded, they found us a table for two without a reservation and couldn't have been more welcoming. The food was delicious and plentiful. Offers pizzas but also fish, pastas, and other traditional Northern Italian options.
