Went there with friends for lunch. The place known more for being a place for dinner but nontheless selection of food was good and service excellent. Plenty of parking spaces amd easily accessed from main rd. Selection of sweets also very good and place is reasonably priced.

I live near Assaggio and I have eaten there every birthday since they started at Newton. Beautiful food, never seems to disappoint me and also beautiful service. My Nonna had her 80th Birthday function there and they put it on very well and it ran smoothly with a mini menu with something for everyone!

We had dinner for 2 on tuesday night. We ordered the chefs choice of 4 entrees. They were plonked on the table with zero explanation as to what the dishes were. Given it was "chefs choice" explanations as to what the dishes are is standard practice. We ordered 2 side dishes with the main one being the "mixed greens "... More

The Tasting menu was brilliant - it consisted of a variety of small courses - each was a twist on a classic beautifully executed and a taste sensation and the dessert was to die for. The GF menu was no longer available BUT there were a large number of GF options. The service was good- with attentive wait staff who... More

Assaggio has always had a 5 star reputation and on the four previous occasions I ranked it highly. We went for lunch as a group of 6 and whilst the food was good, we felt it had slipped a little. I had pasta ragout which was enjoyable, followed by a single sliver serve of cheese which for $12 was a... More

After eating at Assaggio for numerous celebrations over the years, we were very disappointed last night to find the revamped menu and decor lacked the excellence of the past. Gnocchi Romano was nothing more than a bechamel sauce with condiments. Pork belly without crackling and the fattest guitar strings ever played would not have passed from the servery on previous...

I went to Assaggio ristorante for a birthday celebration with my family and we will definitely be returning. It was an evening to remember with their new interior and new menu. They have really captured the true essence of quality Italian. Perfectly seasoned food with bursts of flavour. All meals looked as good as they tasted. The service was incredible.... More
