My husband and I came here for the first time on our anniversary, per a friends recommendation. The menu has a nice selection, we started off with the Seafood stuffed crepes which I had never heard of and as a picky eater was a little apprehensive... did NOT disappoint! So delicious and different! Even the sauce on them was perfection!... More

We went there with 4 couples, with a reservation. It took an hour just to get our drinks. They were obviously understaffed, but not once did anyone come to explain or apologize. The waitress took our dinner orders, but after waiting 2 hours with no food in sight, we got up and left. By this time it was almost 9:30... More

We have been to this restaurant many times and not only is the food great but the service is impeccable. Nice selections on the menu and they are willing to accommodate any changes to an entree. Had the stuffed chicken breast with fontina and mozzarella cheese. It was moist and very tasteful. The fried calamari is the best I have... More

Assaggio's is definitely a favorite of mine. Food is always fresh and presented beautifully. Staff is courteous. Depending on when you go the service can be spot on or a bit slow. My only complaint is the acoustics very noisy when restaurant is full. Desserts are yummy!!

Our family loves Assaggios which is our restaurant of choice for Birthday celebrations. The drinks are very creative, the wait staff are terrific and makes our Birthdays so memorable. They have the best calamari ever and the artistic presentation of the meals are as good as any restaurant in NYC. The sea bass is the best I have ever had!... More

Used a promotion for my first visit here. Very impressed by the staff. Very nice atmosphere. Menu selection is very good. The food was very good which prompted me to re-visit again. There is another promotion by Amazon or Groupon or Living Social which I snapped up immediately. Would recommend this restaurant very much so.

Assaggio is a wonderful restaurant for a special occasion. A anniversary, a birthday, an engagement. It has atmosphere along with a very attentive wait staff. It is more expensive but for the quality of the food and service I have never been disappointed. I ate here with my husband during a Winter storm. It was for my birthday and the... More

My husband took me here for Valentine's weekend. It seemed that they had a nice menu, but not their regular menu. The house salad was very good, although my husband thought his was too salty. I ordered the veal with prosciutto and mozzarella with mushrooms and flavored noodles. It was tasty but the sauce needed to be thicker to match... More

Everything regarding food, service, selection was outstanding however it was extreamly noisey. We almost had to yell to carry on a conversation. Our server knew every item right down to the seasonings and cooking style. We will go back however not on Saturday night. If you go you should try as many items as possible because everything we tried from... More
