This restaurant is romantic with exceptional service. The food is very tasty and rich. I very much enjoyed my experience at Assaggi and would recommend it for a nice romantic meal.

Really enjoyed our dinner at Assaggi last week. Service was friendly, knowledgable and efficient. Although it was a little chiily when we first arrived for an early reservation. It warmed up as the restaurant started to fill. But it was the food and wine that really impressed. My wife had the grouper which can so easily be ruined by overcooking.... More

Pre booking problems should have been early warning. Arrived with my wife and 2 adult children at 9 pm as booked. Took 30 minutes to get a drink ordered and a further 15 minutes to get a (set) menu. Starters were served 45 minutes after order and main courses 60 minutes later after numerous protests. It was clear that the... More

Went to Assaggi when I was looking for somewhere casual to eat online, this was not the right choice of restaurant, but after browsing the menu I couldn't resist! Don't skip the starters at Assaggi, they are really something. All in all a wonderful dining experience, attentive service and most of all delicious food with a difference. It is on... More

It truly is the best meal I had in Saint Julian's. I would put it up there with Guze in Valleta. Assaggi isn't located in a fancy place overlooking Spinola Bay like Barracuda or Meat and Co. Doesn't have the stylish menus you would find in those places either. But the food! The food! The FOOD! What marvelous food! Okay,... More

One of the best places to eat in Malta. Friendly but professional service. Not a huge menu which for me is a good sign but still a good and varied choice. Everything we ordered was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. The braised pork belly I had was the best I have ever had, it just melted. All in all... More

Dining solo can be an unnerving, sensitive experience. It's unnatural in many ways to eat in public without a companion. It signals vulnerability, which is not an experience that pairs well with fine dining. It takes an exceptional waiter or waitress to rebalance the mood of the solo diner. The staff at Assaggi weren't up to the task, but it's... More

Don't miss out! Our only regret is that we found Assaggi's on a Saturday night - which meant that since we were leaving on Monday (and since they are closed for dinner on Sundays) we couldn't have another dinner there before leaving Malta. Seriously, if we had found it earlier in our stay I think we would have been there... More
